[Gays are stinky!]
I'm trying to imagine a left-wing Evangelical... A person who has studied God's word to show himself approved... Who seeks first the Kingdom... Who embraces holiness and strives for sanctification...
And then this person turns around and says... "I think a woman should have the right to kill her inconvenient child... And though homosexuality is a stench in God's nostrils, I can get on board with the Gay Agenda... And the ACLU rules! Let's keep God out of the classroom and the public square."
The Church does not play paddy-cake with the Left. The Left and the Right serve different Masters.
Try T.C. Douglas, for a start. He was a Baptist minister who taught the social gospel of Jesus, and brought Canada it's first Social-democratic party, universal medicare, improved highways, public hospitals, grain subsidies for family farms and a budget surplus in a Canadian province that was perpetually in deficit and required federal subsidies to provide basic services.
The "church" is not what you think, and neither are the teachings of Jesus.
READ YOUR FUCKING BIBLE, ESPECIALLY THE PARTS IN RED INK!
Sorry for the capslock, I'm really in a foul mood.
We all know that Jesus didn't support freedom, tolerance, or acceptance of other people's beliefs or the laws of the state. I mean, seriously, what Bible have these leftists been reading?
"I'm trying to imagine a right-wing Evangelical... A person who has studied God's word to show himself approved... Who seeks first the Kingdom... Who embraces holiness and strives for sanctification...
And then this person turns around and says... "I think a cheap-assed person like me who wants a $200 cut in his taxes so he can buy a flat screen TV should have the right to let someone without medical insurance collapse on the street and leave them to die ... And though eating shrimp is a stench in God's nostrils, I can get on board with Red Lobster ... And the ACLU sucks! We should be able to violate that stupid Constitution any time we want. Let's push the Baptist version of God into the classroom and the public square and screw any Yankee, latte-sipping, Volvo-driving college, educated liberal or Mary-worshiping, Pope-buggering Catholic who isn't a Southern redneck like me."
The fundamentalist Baptist Church does not respect the Left. The Left and the Right serve different Masters."
"The Left and the Right serve different Masters."
I actually proudly agreed with this part.
Edit: @JonathanE: Tommy Douglas was voted the greatest Canadian. There aren't nearly as many Christian Leftists as Christian Conservatives, but they do such awesome things!
"Let's keep God out of the classroom and the public square."
And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.
But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.
Actually, the lines around homosexuality and the Bible are a lot more fuzzy than fundies like to believe. The only place where homosexuality is flat-out banned is in Leviticus (right after they demoralize shellfish). The other verses condemning it went prostitutes-sodomites-perverts-homosexuals, changing it all the time. The Bible does not condemn abortion before a certain period. We don't want to keep God out of the public square, we just can't make laws or restrict peoples' lives because of God. Just saying that it's possible.
The question is that, in the OT, in certain cases, abortion is permitted. Mainly in cases when the child is the product of adultery, so yes, it´s an inconvenient child...............from the point of view of the man. And since Jesus didn´t mention homosexuality NOT ONCE in the NT, It´s difficult to think why it´s a stench in God´s nostril. If you mean Leviticus.............well, there are so many things like mixed fabrics that are a stench in God´s nostril, that you would become an atheist ASAP.
So were we! You can find all of this, and more, on Fundies Say the Darndest Things!
