4 October 2017. This Says It All About Republican Priorities…

This was true in 2012… it’s true today, too. Yes… I voted for Obama… he was bad, but Romney was evil, and that’s that. Note well that many of the loudmouth konvertsy voted for a fanatical Mormon… they called themselves PURE, to boot. No religion is better than such a religion, I say (at least, secularists don’t slander the Lord Christ as Mormons and Evangelicals do).

All of us… Republicans, Democrats, and Independents… can agree that the government has a vested interest in protecting the rights of children and that should include unborn children after 20 weeks.

Robert W Goodlatte

US Representative (R-VA)

Yet, Republicans in Congress just missed a deadline to reauthorise the Children’s Health Insurance Program, which helped states provide insurance coverage to 9 million children in low-income families. The Senate had put forth a bipartisan, 5-year bill to renew the programme, but didn’t schedule a vote in time, instead prioritising legislation to repeal and replace Obamacare. The House never even proposed a bill to reauthorise CHIP, which expired at the end of September.

The Republicans are lying sacks o’ shit. They don’t give a hoot in hell about poor LIVING kids… their rich paymasters might have to pay more taxes! EEK! Oh, the humanity! We can’t have insurance for poor kids… if they won’t work hard enough, they shouldn’t eat! JAYZUS SAID SO (remember, Evangelicals aren’t Christian; Jayzus is the idol that the Evangelicals substitute for the Lord Christ). Watch the konvertsy have paroxysms of joy over this. If you needed proof that they’re not Orthodox and don’t have a scrap of real Christianity in their bones, this is that. Living kids have priority over self-serving anti-abortion gestures. Our Lord Christ would’ve said likewise. Let God see and judge… this is evil of the highest order. Taking away kid’s healthcare to make grandstanding gestures… it’s depraved… just pure fiendishness. Satan laughs at our foolishness and knavery… he calls for a celebratory drink…

10 July 2017. A Point to Ponder from Bishop Lazar

The following encapsulates the evil programme of American neoliberalism (both Republican and Corporate Democrat). Note well that Orthodox konvertsy dance in glee about Trump’s Golden Calf (and call themselves “pro-lifers” to boot)…

To boast of being “pro-life” while acceding to the removal of health care from millions of people, many of whom, children in particular, will die from lack of adequate health care, is surely one of the most gross and egregious hypocrisies of our epoch.

It says it all about the neoliberals (and Orthodox konvertsy), doesn’t it?

8 July 2017. A Thought on Healthcare in the Age of Corporatist Bloat

This is from 2012… Obama had many faults, but he (at least) signed the Affordable Care Act (do remember how Hillary (I think intentionally) flubbed it in the 90s)…

________________________

This says it all about Republican compassion and caring… and about the Clintonistas too…

I lay in the hotel room hearing my uncles discuss the price of feed corn and it occurred to me, not once but several times, that I am a fortunate man and thank you, Lord, for Medicare A and B and a good group health policy and for savings to cover any shortfall. The 23 million people who may lose their health insurance in the next few years if Congress does as the man wishes will face some high barriers between them and any sort of eye surgery. This doesn’t come under the heading of Kindness.

Eighty percent of evangelical Christians who cast ballots last fall voted for a man who seems as far from Christian virtues (humility, kindness, patience, etc.) as Hulk Hogan is from the Dalai Lama. These people pray for guidance. So apparently, Jesus got the story wrong. The rich man came to Lazarus who was covered with sores and asked for a tax break, and the rich man was rewarded and Lazarus went to hell. Do unto others as you’re glad they don’t have the means to do unto you.

Remember… the Clintons brought us NAFTA, “welfare reform”, and the repeal of limits on Wall Street. Any ordinary person who voted for Hillary Clinton was a boob, full stop. Upper-Middles? They voted their class interest. They profited under the Clintons the last time and anticipated more good times under Hillary. As for us, they not only don’t give a good goddamn, they never did.

The rest of the article from which I took the excerpt is here.

“Beware the Virtuous”

________________________

Few people are as dangerous to humanity as those who consider themselves righteous defenders of virtue. Far too often, they have been the authors of state terrorism. Look at Cromwell, Robespierre, Ayatollah Khomeini, Stalin and Mao (who claimed to guard the purity of Communist virtues), and Wahhabism, which spawned ISIS and most of the other virtue-spouting terrorists of our own day. By the way, does anyone question the US leadership’s assertion that Iran is behind much of the world’s Islamist terrorism, even though Sunni, and not Shi’ite, Muslims carry out that terrorism? Why aren’t Christians making a real defence of the poor and downtrodden? Because the leading and loudest voices in American “Christianity” want to see “virtue” enforced by law, and they don’t care at all for those for whom Christ cared. “Enforcing virtue” consumes them, even though they have little respect for the virtues that Christ taught. They fancy themselves “righteous defenders of virtue”, but have no use for the teachings and example of Christ. American Evangelicalism is merely a rightwing political movement that uses Christ as a cheap frontman for their extreme politics and displays little that would commend them as followers of Christ.

HH offered a similar viewpoint on the Sunday of Orthodoxy in 2009:

Never did the Lord say, “My teaching or death”. None of the Apostles said, “Orthodoxy or Death”. Because Orthodoxy is life eternal, it’s joy in the Holy Spirit, it’s the joy of life, but death is decay that came because of the Fall and the devil’s action. Now, we see, from time to time, false teachers who seduce people by calling to save Christianity, to save its purity, who repeat this dangerous, sinful, and self-contradictory slogan “Orthodoxy or death”. In the eyes of these people, you won’t find love; there burns a fire of demonic pride, a desire for power, which destroys the Church’s unity. Of course, they put on a good show, they hide behind pious visages, and they enjoy adulation from a certain set of people.

If one needed to describe all-too-many konvertsy, the above says it all. Beware the “pure” and the “crusader”… all too often, they’ve allied themselves with and sold out to evil.
