…Because labels are a poor substitute for thinking

Theocrat watch: update

Posted by Bill Nance on November 27, 2008

Ayatollah James Dobson has written a new screed, denouncing Kathleen Parker for daring to voice the opinion that a theocracy plank in the GOP platform might not be wise.

Some choice bits:

“Ms. Parker cites the election of Barack Obama as evidence that Americans no longer care much about the moral-values issues that have historically driven conservative voters to the polls.”

No, you fucking twit, it’s evidence that having an ignorant, uneducated, religious nutbag who believes in  WITCHES and thinks the world is 6,000 years old isn’t appealing to sane people as a potential president.

“The problem with that analysis is that it doesn’t hold up when you look at the results in the three states that voted on marriage-protection amendments Nov. 4. Residents of California, Florida and Arizona voted to define marriage in their constitutions as the union of one man and one woman”

That’s nothing to do with the GOP and you know it. What was voted on was fear and homophobia. If you  cock-craving closet queens would just go suck a few penises and get it out of your system, maybe you’d stop feeling so moved to inspire hate and intolerance for people whose only crime is wanting to make a life-time commitment to each other….unless you think having the two guys next door married to each other will be such a disturbing element that you’ll start uncontrollably feeling up other men in airport restrooms like the rest of your ilk.

“…it’s the notion that, because there are people of many faiths in the United States, those of the Christian faith must not think or act like Christians when engaging the public square.”

No you disgusting little troll, if you wackjob hate-mongers would actually act like Christ instead of the Scribes and Pharisees, people wouldn’t be so upset with you. Everything you do slaps Jesus in the mouth. Christ stood for love, tolerance and forgiveness. The ONLY things he repeatedly condemned and got angry with were the people who sowed hate, judgement and intolerance. Read your own book you bloody ignoramus. According to your own religion, the LAW is not the road to salvation. If Jesus was here today you’d be calling him a Socialist Fag-lover.

“That is similar to something then-Sen. Obama said a couple of years ago, arguing in a speech before a gathering of liberal Christians that “democracy demands that the religiously motivated translate their concerns into universal, rather than religion-specific, values.”

“It requires that their proposals be subject to argument, and amenable to reason,” he added. “I may be opposed to abortion for religious reasons, but if I seek to pass a law banning the practice, I cannot simply point to the teachings of my church or evoke God’s will. I have to explain why abortion violates some principle that is accessible to people of all faiths, including those with no faith at all.”

That is, as my theologian friend Al Mohler called it, “secularism with a smile” — offered in the form of an invitation for believers to show up, but then only to be allowed to make arguments that are not based in their deepest beliefs.

No you fucking Theocrat. It’s called reason. It’s call common sense. And it’s called democracy. We don’t live (yet) in your bloody-minded fundamentalist theocracy. If you had your way, homosexuals would be hanged, young girls would be forced to bear horribly deformed and soon-to-die children which were the result of being raped by their fathers, Women who exposed a breast would be stoned to death and no woman would be allowed to disagree with her husband.

WAKE UP AMERICA.  This isn’t Christianity. It’s the TALIBAN wearing a Jesus suit.
