Jesus Loves You (Everyone Else Thinks You're An Ass)

At very heart of most religious expressions is the desire to forgive, love, and live at peace with one another.  Sadly, it's the ones who preach the loudest that I find horribly difficult to tolerate.  These Christian Dominionist windbags are constantly bemoaning the fear that we may "lose our country" or "allow the Godless, heathen hordes of liberals" take over our nation.  It's a classic fear tactic that sadly works on the already deceived - even though most of us recognize it as a recurring theme from the Music Man.

There's trouble in river city!

 

They are peddling a brand of "Christianity" that is bordering on the heretical because it is based on fear, the concept of human potential to usher in the second coming - all that's needed is to create a theocratic environment and Jesus will magically show up and send all of them "liberulls" to hell and the only people to be saved and have dominion over the earth are the ones who believe that Ronald Reagan was some kind of a prophet and that Obama is the Anti-Christ.  They stir up trouble, they propagate fear, and what is truly heartbreaking is that so many people actually believe their tripe.

There's trouble in river city! 

They are "whitewashed tombs, full of dead men's bones" and "broods of vipers."  They maintain a cloak of godliness, but underneath, they too have a demon inside.  They all have skeletons in their closets but they think that they can hide it from the rest of us.  They think that we don't notice the flaws in their humanity and that they closely resemble our own.  This group of hypocrites are the most dangerous since the dawn of the Christian faith.  And we have been warned about them. 

One ass hat was talking about ways to ignore the SCOTUS ruling on gay marriage (better not read Romans 13 - actually, just rip those pages out of your Bible) and let the states decide what they want because, apparently, gay marriage is destroying traditional marriage and the SCOTUS can't interpret the Constitution as well as a few whipper-snappers in the Legislature.

This same dominionist is married to someone who had children before he and his wife got married.  Let's see what Jesus had to say about that in Matthew 5:32...

But I say to you that everyone who divorces his wife, except for the reason of unchastity, makes her commit adultery; and whoever marries a divorced woman commits adultery.  ~ NASB
Game.  Set.  Match.
Of course, this is just an opinion and I could be wrong, but I truly doubt it.
