How dare they…who do these ‘supposed’ men of the cloth and some ‘wanna be’ and currently elected politicians think they are. And when you add in some who in their minds only think of themselves as ‘political celebrities’ of sorts…you get persons who have set themselves up as judge and jury over a small percentage of the American population.
And the examples I’m cited below are just the tip of an ever expanding iceberg.
Scott Esk, a Republican Tea Party candidate from Oklahoma, got into a heated back-and-forth discussion on Facebook last year when he called for the killing…YES killing…of gay Americans.
“I think we would be totally in the right to do it…That goes against some parts of libertarianism, I realize, and I’m largely libertarian, but ignoring as a nation things that are worthy of death is very remiss,” he said.
Mississippi State Rep. Andy Gipson spewed on his Facebook page a Bible verse from Leviticus that called for gays to be stoned to death…then took it back after being chastised for his comment but ONLY because he was called to task for it.
Pastor James David Manning said in a YouTube video that Christians who do NOT attack gays are “advocating lawlessness. Stoning of the homos is now in order. Stoning is still the law.”
This said in the name of God all while Manning had the audacity to preach the word of God.
And when at this year’s Rose Bowl Parade a gay wedding took place on one of the floats, Pastor Dave Buehner strongly ‘suggested’ that anti-gay activists be represented at these types of parades from here on. Saying, “I wonder what the Rose Bowl parade would do if we had the stoning of a homosexual along the parade just as an expression of free speech and all that,” his vileness seeps through with every word.
Just think about those words…really think about them…and if you don’t find those words spewed by an ubber right supposedly Christian man of the cloth pure hateful…as they call for what amounts to the execution of a gay person while Bible verses are being quoted…then you are as guilty of the ‘hate’ as he is. And this man also called for government officials to step in and arrest gays just for being who they are both before and after said parades would be going on.
And even sadder is that certain ‘self-anointed’ leaders of the Conservative movement on Facebook and on the internet spew the same garbage but in a folksy homespun sort of way, but their message of hate in the end is quite the same.
And all this hate is done in the name of the Evangelical Church…notice I said church NOT…I repeat NOT…in the name of its followers…just want to make that point clear. But also know that a certain percentage of said church’s followers also hold this anything but Godly view.
|The wanted weapon of the ‘haters’|
Stoning…these people are actually calling for the stoning of fellow Americans… calling for the MURDER of fellow Americans all because of a mistranslation of a Biblical verse in the King James Bible…a mistranslation by those who set the words down on paper…and please do NOT claim that God dipped his quill pen in ink and guided the hand of the transcribers for NO such thing happened as this Bible was written for political reasons alone.
The King James Bible was commissioned by King James 1 in 1604, at the Hampton Court Conference. Done like I said for political reasons…as in to appease the very vocal yet highly educated Puritan minority…and to counter what James himself considered ‘supposed’ inconsistencies in both the Geneva and Bishops Court Bible, this one man took it upon himself to disregard all versions that came before. Saying he, “Could never yet see a Bible well translated in English; but I think that, of all, that of Geneva is the worst. I wish some special pains were taken for an uniform translation, which should be done by the best learned men in both Universities, then reviewed by the Bishops, presented to the Privy Council, lastly ratified by the Royal authority, to be read in the whole Church, and none other,” this man anointed himself the sole keeper and arbitrator of God’s word.
“…ratified by Royal authority” meaning James 1…as King…could change the transcribed words as he saw fit and as many times as he wanted…setting his version above all others never mind all the mistranslations within his version as well.
Written by men…mistranslated by men…and approved by one man alone…this Bible became the authority by which today’s ‘haters’…both political and clerical… love to quote the words of God. And these ‘haters’ have so twisted the words “love the sinner, hate the sin” as to condone MURDER in the name of God.
MURDER with the ‘supposed’ approval of God…the most grievous of all sins is one I think God would be most unhappy with for we are supposed to “love thy neighbor” NOT pick and choose which neighbor we are to do so with. And these pastors… even more so than the politicians…most of whom just spew the hate gay message for votes…are extremely dangerous as they lure people into their churches…into their Facebook world…with words from the Bible and then turn God’s message of love and acceptance into their own personal version of hate…and like lambs to the slaughter the weak and the blind followers swallow it hook, line, and sinker.
And this call for ‘death to all gays’ is fueled on by folks who must fear something in themselves for how can they honestly believe that a mere two percent of the American population is more of a threat to our nation than is Barack HUSSEIN Obama and his pen and phone…or that islam and sharia must take a backseat to their self-perceived ‘gay problem’…and yet they do. And they do so by wanting to MURDER gay people by stoning…stoning…just like the muslim bast*rds do to those they don’t like.
And these same folks worship at the feet of those who espouse this hate…men who do so solely to line their own pockets by ‘whoring’ themselves out to the almighty dollar and for Facebook ‘numbers and likes.’ And these ‘haters’ consider themselves part of the Evangelical Church… sounds more like the Evangelical mosque if you ask me.
And NO true conservative…NO true American… would call for a punishment that’s equated with sharia law…for sharia law is used as punishment only in the muslim cesspools of the world and must NEVER be allowed or condoned here in America. And always remember, our Declaration of Independence says “all men are created equal”…ALL men…NOT just straight men or white men or black men or yellow men or red men (and know that ‘men’ is used in the all-encompassing sense so I do NOT want to hear the whining of the women’s libbers here)…meaning ALL men of ALL colors and ALL sexual orientations.
So while stoning is indeed mentioned in the Bible, the Bible is NOT the rule of law in our nation nor should it ever be, and true Conservatives and TEA Partiers know this. True Conservatives and TEA Partiers alike are all about the Constitution and the Constitution alone making us a nation of secular laws…laws that encompass everyone NOT any one particular religion’s laws. Remember, our Founders while believers in God NEVER intended America to be a nation of Biblical laws…as the Founders knew the Bible’s laws were written to a different people, in a different time, in a different culture…written thousands of years before the founding of this country.
And the TEA Party does NOT need those who think otherwise for the TEA Party was NEVER intended to be about religion. The TEA Party was founded upon the principals of ‘Taxed Enough Already’ and adherence to the rule of law that is the Constitution…period. And to those who are trying to make it otherwise…you will destroy the TEA Party movement by trying to make it so…but then again maybe that was your true goal right from the start.
So to those who spew hate…to those who spew LIES…in God’s name, you really need to keep your hate to yourselves for you are going against the very country and its laws that you claim to so love…against the very country that has afforded you the right to spew your hate. Shame on you and shame on all those who join in that hate. I wonder how God will judge you on your Judgment Day. Bet you’ll be in for one ‘hell’ of a rude awakening …as in better pack light for it will be hot where I believe you’ll be going.
And to all of you who still believe after all I’ve said that gays should be stoned to death, think of what Jesus said when confronted by an angry crowd, “Let he who is without sin cast the first stone.” Bet none of you ‘haters’ are sinless…just saying.
