“‘Stop in the Name of Christ?’ Why? How many divisions does he have, and how big is his GDP? We won’t stop stomping the unemployed and poor until you kiss the bums of the rich and give them everything that they want (and stop paying those lazy bastards on the dole)“.
What utter malarkey and BS… the voters rejected the GOP agenda by not voting for the Republican supermajorities necessary to override President Obama’s vetoes. Full stop. What happened is that the Republicans can only obstruct… they can’t do anything positive. President Obama doesn’t have to veto anything… Harry Reid will see to that.
I’ll tell you what Mitch McConnell is doing… he’s cudgelling the most vulnerable Americans… and his rich backers not only don’t scruple at that, they urge him on! This tells you volumes about the American Suburban Affluent Effluent. They don’t give a damn just so long as they don’t have to feel the effects of the Depression that they engendered through the Bush tax cuts and the Bush warmongering. Then, they dress it all up in “patriotism” and “religiosity”… it turns the stomach of any decent person.
Do not mistake me, the situation is not easy… neither side is fully within the Church’s teachings… both sides have “dirty hands” and kompromat. On the one hand, the right wing is anti-abortion, but it’s not Pro-Life in the best sense of the term; for they’re Mammon worshippers, Sectarians, warmongers, and racists. On the other, the left is for the continued legal status of abortion, but they’re in favour of regulating the fat cats, stopping the wars, aiding the poor and middle class, and they’re (in the main) against the Sectarian agenda. Firstly, abortion is not going to be criminalised, despite the noise from teabaggers and other extremists. Only 50 percent of Americans have any sort of connection with a religious group of any kind… the other 50 percent are secularists (if you don’t go to church at all, you’re a secularist). The consensus is that abortion should be regulated, but kept legal, and that’s that.
Secondly, this election was the high-water mark of the Tea Party. People are going to remember the heartless cruelty of the GOP… they’ll recall how the baggers kicked the helpless during the holiday season at the command of their fatcat backers. What utter duplicity, perfidy, and deceitfulness… as they loudly proclaim their “Christian values”. Let me tell you, such smarmy falseness is the main cause of atheism out there. To think that there are Orthodox clergy who approve of this wicked charade. One is Jonas Paffhausen… when I look at his actions and statements, I’ve concluded that he never converted in his heart of hearts. He is only Orthodox formally… his soul is Sectarian to the core. This is not only true of Fathausen; it’s true of most konvertsy.
When you link to Rush Limbaugh, you bring your boot down, full force, on the faces of the prostrate unemployed. If you join hands with Sectarians for any reason, you swing a club at the face of His Holiness. If you support Sarah Palin, you support those who wish to spread American Godless Consumerism throughout the world. Actions have consequences… therefore, I find that I cannot support the Republican Party in any way, shape, or form… they have declared themselves in favour of Mammon, Endless Warfare, and Sectarianism. I would remind my readers that His Holiness is not alone in condemning the fraudulence of the “Free Market”… Benedict XVI Ratzinger agrees with him on this, as do most other Christian leaders. Mark it down well that only Sectarians and renegade right wing Orthodox and RCs favour the Tea Party agenda… our leaders have spoken, and they condemn the Tea Party’s materialist programme 100 percent.
Get your mind right. No Orthodox Christian, Roman Catholic, or legitimate Christian can support this evil movement. Mr McConnell… repent! God has a special cold place in hell for you, if you don’t… to beat the helpless is bad enough, but to beat them to further enrich those who already have more than a sufficiency is demonic. This is too much of a muchness. As I said, I no longer support the Republican Party, and I see why Frank Schaeffer, C C Goldwater, Julie Nixon Eisenhower, Wick Allison, and Christopher Buckley have done likewise. The Republican Party has become the cat’s paw of the super-rich and Sectarian nutters… one can only ruefully agree with the late Senator Barry Goldwater:
Do not associate my name with anything you do. You are extremists, and you’ve hurt the Republican Party much more than the Democrats have.
If you agree with the Tea Party… you place yourself outside of the Church’s ambit deliberately and with full malice aforethought. Here’s the choice… “You are your brother’s keeper”, or, “I worked for this, it’s mine”… the two attitudes are antipodes apart.
