Christians: 0; Pretenders: A Mandate

And this: With all the millions of children in our country who don’t have enough food, clothing, or love, how can right-wing Christians possibly still cling to the delusion that God thinks gay people are the biggest threat to Christian values? Times Jesus mentions the poor in the gospels: I lost count halfway through Matthew. Times he mentions homosexuality: Zero.

It’s worth taking a peek at “I want my faith back” — in the Arkansas Times, of all places.

Special thanks to Mark King for pointing me to the article.

    “In the Arkansas Times, of all places?”

    Rick, don’t tell me you are one of those who can’t imagine liberals in the South. The town you have chosen for your home markets itself in a manner that most would consider especially appealing to rednecks. It is certainly not a bastion of liberal thought. I would postulate that there are geometrically more liberals per capita in Little Rock, for instance, than in the town you have chosen as your home. And you are in the heart of wild and supposedly liberal California.

    More on this later, when I have time to do a full-fledged article…

    It’s not that I can’t imagine that. After all, Clinton is from Little Rock, Arkansas, right?

    It’s just that with all the red-state/blue-state stuff lately, one would have been looking for this article in the New York Times or somewhere else from which it’s been missing. So I guess it was more a thing of goading the others by pointing out that the place people stereotypically might not expect to be speaking out against the criminal right-wing conservative “religious” element is exactly where this article came from.

    If we don’t start hearing from more of these folk, the neo-Pharisees are going to get clean away with hijacking our government. Someone has got to convince Congress that re-structuring America on the theocratic plan of the Bush Minions is not only actually Satanic, but is going to cost them votes.

    It’s time for those who take the godly ways of Jesus seriously to awaken and assist the rest of us in keeping America on the constitutional path upon which it was first set by the liberals who founded it.
