25 July 2015. Why Orthodoxy has NOTHING in Common with the Sect Known as “Evangelicalism”

00 god told us to hate you. 190715

Read this and this. Both of these stories point up the fact that the “Evangelicals” want to impose their “religion” on the rest of us. The second story points up the fact that they’re not very scrupulous in their methods, either. The Pro-Life Movement has swallowed the false videos completely, without a scrap of critical examination. Now, it’s clear that this movement has no scruples, no morals, no compunction… “Any stick to beat Planned Parenthood”… such amorality and contempt for the truth is not in line with what the Church has ALWAYS stood for. As for ramming one’s religion down another’s throat in the name of “Freedom of Religion”… well, I’m not the only one to find it hypocritical; besides that, it’s illegal in a secular republic. The state doesn’t care what religion or creed you profess… that’s the law of the land. To expect the state to give you preferential status due to your “sincerely-held religious beliefs” isn’t only against man’s law… it’s against God’s Law, too.

It’s time to shut up the loudmouth rightwing asshats amongst us. It doesn’t reflect what the Church teaches and it brings unnecessary shame upon us. We aren’t rightwing crazies. No, we don’t agree with EITHER conventional “Liberals” or “Conservatives” in the American sense. We should stop waving placards and start helping unwed mothers… if a gay person walks into our store, we have the obligation to treat them as Our Lord Christ would have done… with dignity and respect (and, certainly, with no condescension, either). After all, we can choose to follow Christ or Caiphas… the choice is yours… choose wisely…
