The King James Bible is the only preserved version of the Word of God
...so the answers are 'Yes' and 'Yes'. And in that order? Well then. For starters:
Guess who's buried & memorialised in Westminster Abbey, the central place of worship of the Church of England. And someone, who - prior to his discoveries & he becoming an Agnostic - was in training to join the clergy of the C-of-E in his early years.
2- As per Queen Elizabeth II today, and King George III in the past (who you lot had that slight kerfuffle against: because you thought you were too good for a state* religion) guess who was head of the Church of England: King James I.
You know the importance of that name only too well. Your very religion depends on it. 'Degenerate behaviors as allowing same-sex "marriages,"', you say? Well, I've got news for ya: The authoriser of your precious KJV was as gay as they come.
So no fucking wonder then, that the Church of England clergy peers in the House of Lords here in the UK dropped their opposition to S-SM, thus the 2013 Marriage (Same-Sex Couples) Act was rubber-stamped by MPs in Parliament & entered the statute book: said peers realised the more than infinite hypocrisy in their opposing such.
For the one who gave them the very basis of their religion was gay too.
'Degenerate' king, degenerate Bible, therefore degenerate God. [/David & Jonathan]
Trying to argue the toss against someone of the same nationality as the past monarch who gave you your precious KJV was your first mistake. You've walked right into the argumental Claymore mine array of your own - albeit subconscious - making, which you placed there yourself. You followed my plan to the letter. You danced to my tune, little fundie retard. Oh, and I'm afraid that any 'King James I wasn't gay' denials by you or any other fundie not allowed. The secular historical evidence proves that fact. You don't have the right to deny it, nor think otherwise.
4- You FAIL. But then, that's what happens when you Did Not Do The Research.
And we Atheists have. That's why we eternally win.
*- That 'War of Independence': and against whom, and what he was head of.
So I guess you won't want your country to be a Christian nation (despite fundies' demands in recent years for right-wing fundamentalist Christainity to be the only one allowed in the US): purely a secular one as per the Founding Fathers' insistence in a certain 'Goddamn Piece of Paper' that they drew up, on an Establishment Clause: in which a state religion is forbidden: thus your country isn't allowed to be a Christian one; 'Separation of Church and State' means exactly that: the government can't tell people who and how to worship, the likes of you don't have the fucking right to tell the government how to run the country. Otherwise, there was no point to that 'War of Independence', and you can proceed to hand over the keys of the White House to Queen Elizabeth II, thus President Theresa May, the Capitol Building becomes Parliament II, the Union Flag flies above the White House, it's Pounds instead of Dollars, 'God Save the Queen' instead of the 'Star Spangled Banner', and a certain ship becomes HMS Nimitz. That's the price you must pay for wanting Christianity to be the only religion allowed in your country, I'm afraid.
Because once you start straying beyond the doors of your 'churches' etc and start thinking you have the right to have ideas above your stations, then the IRS can waltz into your 'churches' etc and start demanding fundie Christainity's rather sizeable chunk of the nearly $17 quadrillion in back-taxes owed by Christianity in the US since 1776. In the case of right-wing fundamentalist Christainity, untold trillions.
So y'see, your government owns God. And they have more than every right in the world to seize his bitch arse at any time: and there's less than fuck all you can do about it. Except for all you fundies to STFU in perpetuity
No Taxee, No Opinionee.
Oh, and I'll leave you with this:
Denomination: Reformed Church in America (19812012) Roman Catholic (since 2012)
'Until 2013, the building had been the principal place of worship for Crystal Cathedral Ministries, a congregation of the Reformed Church in America founded in 1955 by Robert H. Schuller. Crystal Cathedral Ministries filed for bankruptcy in October 2010 and in February 2012 sold the building and its adjacent campus to the Roman Catholic Diocese of Orange for use as the diocese's new cathedral. The building, especially the interior, is currently being renovated to accommodate the Roman Catholic liturgy and is due to re-open in 2017, at which time it is expected to be consecrated and formally renamed Christ Cathedral and become the seat of the Diocese of Orange'
'On June 9, 2012, the diocese announced that the new parish would be known as "Christ Cathedral" when it becomes the diocese's new cathedral, and that Fr. Christopher Smith will be its episcopal vicar'
Unless you voted for Hillary Clinton last year, I wonder what your thoughts are on your current Retard-in-Chief's choice of VP: certainly his religion...?!
Your God-Emperor of the Protestant & KJV-onlyist Religious Reich Ronnie Raygun must be turning in his grave, eh? If you don't worship Raygun, you can prove that fact: remove his image from your pissant little Andy Schaftafly-esque vanity project of a 'Wiki'. (Oh, and newsflash: Andy Schaftafly is a Catholic)
Every second you don't, you're admitting that your Abrahamic 'God' isn't your choice of deity to worship. And isn't your J-boy the only 'King'? Elvis Presley was no monarch: merely a singer. Otherwise, why rely on that which was authorised by King James I? You're therefore admitting that this British monarch & past head of the Church of England is superior to your 'God'.
Enjoy your MC Escher-esque multi-dimensional paradox, Jimmy-boy.
