It’s been a weird week for the “Religious(?) Wrong!” Not that having a weird week is anything like abnormal for these “Khristians.” (As my regular readers know, I refer to this troupe of troglodytes as “Khristians,” because “Christians,” they sure as hell ain’t! J.C. preached love, this group slithers out of the cesspool to screech hate!)
Writer’s disclaimer: This is NOT a complete list of this week’s warped reasoning, false fantasies, and outright lies told by these mental midgets. (I’m writing a post, not a seven-volume-set of tomes.)
Jim Bakker: Christians Must Pray for Trump Because ‘We’re so Close to the Bible Being Illegal‘ This is the first of two of rants this week, by Jim (You can take the man out of the con, but you can’t take the con out of the man.) Bakker.
Cindy Jacobs: If Equality Act Passes, Christians May Start a Civil War!
You try to take the Bible away and say that we cannot preach the gospel of the lord, Jesus Christ, there are millions of believers in America and I believe that would be the dumbest thing for them to do—because if they do that, or they pass this Equality Act, listen, there is going to be a shaking. There is going to be a shaking and Christians will rise up.
Btw, Cindy made this threat as a guest of Jim Bakker. (Why am I not surprised?)
You’re going to see the leaders of the church and the leaders of the gospel and the political conservative leaders that are powerful, you are going to see them suddenly die, suddenly killed—suddenly as they were driving, suddenly as they were in a boat, suddenly in an airplane—you’re going to see it one after another.”
God spoke this to me years ago what would happen near the end and I believe we’re in that time. This is life and death. This is the hatred of murder is in the country.
(If you’re scared poopless by all Jim’s talking of doom and death, not to worry! Jim will be glad to sell you several years’ worth of dry food. Then, you can hunker down in your bomb shelter/safe room and ride out the apocalypse!)
[Jesus] said if anybody divorced his wife, except for the cause of fornication or adultery, he should not be remarried.
But we have got a situation in America where almost for every couple of marriages there is also a broken marriage or divorce. And there are millions of people who got divorces, and they remarry and try to set up new families. And I have said all along, I think the church, which has been given the power of God to bind and loose, should lose this regulation and let people understand that divorce is not the unpardonable sin and that remarriage is not something that is forbidden forever.
In case you haven’t noticed, right-wing Khristians, like to pick and chose which bible passages are “right for them!” Much like the Tea Potty types like to pick and chose which parts of the Constitution are “right for them.”
Out or all, their Weird Week whack-a-doodles, my fave was the “Good Omens” kerfuffle. GO is an Amazon Prime series based on a fantasy novel by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman. [SPOILER ALERT] It’s about an angel and a demon joining forces to stop an imminent apocalypse.
Well, just the thought of that, sent at least 20,000 Khristians into a state of apoplexy. They demanded, I say again, DEMANDED that the series be dropped by NETFLIX. (More proof that they really are THAT STUPID!)
If you haven’t been paying close attention, some of these Weird Week raves and rants may surprise you. However, by and large, this has been a pretty typical week, religious(?) troglodyte-wise. What hasn’t been typical is the action taken by Alabama this week.
Alabama Quietly Passes Law Allowing Church With History of Racism and Homophobia to Form Its Own Police Force.
They tried this back in’ 17, but dropped it after the public found out what they were up to. This time, they slipped it in before many people noticed. This is, of course, against the 1st Amendment that supposedly separates governmental and religion. But, like I said, these types like to pick and choose.
