Obama decision on gay marriage shows government trying to abolish God
...
This article from the Christian Science Monitor was written by "a writer for a non-profit group". . . .sounds an awful lot like Focus on Family in Colorado Springs. . . . .the 'war' broadens. . .Obama vs GOD. . .. . . hahahaaaaa



Yep, could only be the one reason. Will we be far behind?

This will go on for a while and there will be heated debates, but eventually no one will care or should I say, God will still be around and doing very well!

Newt is just serving up some red meat for the fundamentalists he's trying to sway. This tells me he is running. He's too smart not to know that Obama has created a tar baby he wants the Republicans to hit, and distract their single-minded concentration on the deficit. The Republican leadership in Congress undoubtedly knows that this marriage issue has no legs, and you shouldn't make the mistake of thinking that this matter is anything other than a flash in the political pan.
As for God, what's there to abolish?

Every time someone proposes a logical argument, someone else quotes their version of the Bible or God himself.

If the Bible is the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth, why isn't it plain and simple and unequivocal?

And why does God allow others to speak for him?

It's just so ludicrous it's beyond belief.

I can't believe that the same species that sent us to the moon can also be responsible for so much codswallop.

Well, that is last death throes of the religious reich pedaling their line of crap. . . .fear...guilt. . ignorance. . .etc.

They must get so tired of all this! I certainly tire of them when I pay any attention to them. Boring ninnies. . .hahahaa

JustinO'Shea said...

J. . . .sssshhhh.. . hush up now. ;-)

JustinO'Shea said...

And, Gary, I imagine God washing his hands. walking away, saying "Don't blame me. T'was never any of my doing. . "

You look great when you smile. . . .spit out the sours, now . . ;-)

Gary Kelly said...

I just did.

Coop said...

I agree with J in that the Republican leadership won't pursue the marriage issue.

Coop said...

Why do I even bother to skim through this political/ Christian Right stuff??

JustinO'Shea said...

Cool beans. 2 for your side. ;-)

Mr Kelly posits:
"I can't believe that the same species that sent us to the moon can also be responsible for so much codswallop."

Because the species is still evolving. Unfortunately it happens that the areas of evolutionary growth are not balanced. Philosophical savvy and theological acumen do not always accompany progress and proficiency in plumbing, nuts n bolts and megabytes and nanno jolts and shifts. .

Too often, no most of the time we see and hear the limited edition. In the beginning God created man in His own image and likeness. . .and Man has been reversing the process ever since.

JustinO'Shea said...

Why bother, Coopsta? Well it is kinda a good idea to have some idea what the Christian Reich might be up to. . . like that pernicious group in Colorado Springs -- Jim Dobson and Focus on Family -- whose writers slip articles spewing their venon into mostly-reputable organs like The Christian Science Monitor and Huffington Post. . .or is it Huntington Post?.

Have you ever looked at Focus on Family website?

Coop said...

Nope. I've never looked at "Focus on the Family's" website. The stuff on there is misguided, wrong and hurtful. It could depress me.
Why should I look at it? Why make time for it?

Gary Kelly said...

I agree with Coop. Those religious right groups claim ownership of God, and then turn around and claim ownership of family as well.

They make me sick with their self-righteous, self-centered bullshit. No one owns God, and no one owns family.

JustinO'Shea said...

Amen. Yeah verily yeaaaaas. Amen.
Aaaaaaaaahhhhh men!

Stew said...

I find these articles very entertaining. I always enjoy a good laugh before bed, ya know.
I liked the line about how marriage has long been "surrounded by a halo of sacredness"
It's rare these days to find anyone that hasn't been married more than once. I guess the first couple don't count.... just practicing.
They'll get over themselves.

Coop said...

How could someone tolerate auditory trash long enough to discover homophobic words in rap music?
I listen to 80s bands too loud so that's probably why I don't get it.

Focus on the Family and such is not trash... it is someone's opinion... but I applaud anyone who is open to sifting through it.

JustinO'Shea said...

COOPSTA. . .you are sooooooo tolerant!!!
If you read the stuff, then I would question your tolerance. . .they are out to "terminate" you from the "face of the earth", take away all your rights because "you are an abomination before God." THEY said so.
tsk. . .tsk. . .tsk. . .but I won't let them "terminate you". .. ;-))
so there!!!

Coop said...

Well, Justino, I try not to hate them. I try to follow the example of the most important man EVER :)
It is HARD, but it's what I feel we are called to do.

Besides, why should we lower ourselves to hatred? ;-)

Coop said...

The Queer community makes a mistake by focusing on how Fundamentalist groups hate US. The same groups hate EVERYBODY who is not like them.
GLBTs and our allies should dig up whatever dirt we can find and make it public. It disheartens me that the ranting about the Haiti earthquake died as fast as did. It was racist.

(Off pulpit) :p
