God Hates Fags, And God Hates America

Reblogged from my religion blog.

A Cry In The Dark

Not too much has been said, since it was a foregone conclusion and expected for a long time. ]

I haven’t read Justice Kennedy’s sentimental ruling. We already knew the law is whatever they want it to be, for whatever reason they want. And Kennedy’s status as a “conservative” is of no consequence- of course he has singlehandedly built the “constitutional” “law” of gay rights, but a conservative is just another kind of progressive.

Amusingly- or not, as it may strike you- Greg Johnson of Counter Currents has run through the standard arguments against gay marriage, and finds them wanting. Like many other conservatives and “neo-reactionaries” he has a horror of being thought of as one of those people, not modern, not sophisticated. It wouldn’t save him, and he knows it, but at least he can feel like the most orthodox zek in the camp.

But allow…

About thrasymachus33308

I like fast cars, fast women and southern-fried rock. I have an ongoing beef with George Orwell. I take my name from a character in Plato's "Republic" who was exasperated with the kind of turgid BS that passed for deep thought and political discourse in that time and place, just as I am today. The character, whose name means "fierce fighter" was based on a real person but nobody knows for sure what his actual political beliefs were. I take my pseudonym from a character in an Adam Sandler song who was a obnoxious jerk who pissed off everybody.

  2. It’s too bad the original has been banned from youtube (dozens of times) but this one has about 75% of the original. The sermon by the daughter was better.

    It was pretty awesome, I don’t care what your beliefs, just from the artistic standpoint alone.

    • Insane people don’t like having it pointed out they are crazy…. If you do they will say you are crazy….. Good Christian boys in the Mideast, fighting for Freedom, for ‘Murka, for the Constitution….. of course there won’t be gays serving openly in the military, that would be insane….. of course states won’t be forced to have gay marriage, that’s not in the Constitution, that would be insane….. of course people won’t despise me and refuse to give me a job when I get home because I’m a Bible-believing Christian, that would be insane….. Those weirdos, those rotten evil bastards who protest soldiers’ funerals, they are insane…….

  3. I assume you’ve seen “Hatemongers.” But the fact is, Phelps didn’t start his sex preaching because of the Gage Park incident. His first appearance in the newspapers was him preaching against “pre-marital sex” and “heavy petting” at his local university, long before he was even married. He was kicked out of his first church which is why he founded WBC.

    So, his love of verbal abuse – “preaching against sin” – started long before the homos at Gage Park.

    See, the thing is, you’re supposed to worry about your own sins. Even Pete Peteres, the racist version of Phelps from the 80s, used to ask his callers if they wanted divorcees to be executed too. They would all call in and say, “yeah, fags are worthy of death” but they would balk when he mentioned that so were adulterers.

    What really made the WBC important was the funeral protests. Don’t you remember after 9/11, the conservatives of the Bush administration had all but co-opted Christianity to be the Civic Religion? Preachers around the country were saying that America was founded to save Israel from the Muslims. “Gog and Magog” had changed from the “godless commies” to the Muslims overnight.

    WBC protested the soldier’s funerals precisely to protest the co-opting of Christianity into the civic religion – they said this very clearly in their Supreme Court case. That’s what it was all about.

    But most Christians don’t care about that – they only care about perverted sex.

    The WBC was always pretty consistent that straight people were just as bad as fags, and their go to line was “you people change your sex partners more often than you change your nasty undergarments.”

    It’s pretty easy to pick on the homos, because only a tiny percentage of people are homos. Start talking about fornication, divorce, and adultery, and all of a sudden most Christians aren’t so interested in following Leviticus to the letter anymore.

    Christians only care about sex – any other sin is fine, you’ll never be thrown out of a church for anything but sexual sin. You could steal millions, participate in murder, lie, cheat and steal and that’s no problem, as long as you are putting money in the plate.

    But commit some sexual sin, and you’re out. That’s essentially why Christianity is all but dead these days, it’s just a bunch of blue-haired ladies clucking about sex – no other aspect of morality matters at all.

    So, bombing children overseas, mass murder, in fact, even bizarre sexual torture like at Gitmo and Abu Ghraib, that’s all fine to the average American Christian.

    • even bizarre sexual torture like at Gitmo and Abu Ghraib, that’s all fine to the average American Christian. … as long as you don’t get an erection while you are doing it.
