22 April 2016. “American Family Association” Calls for Boycott of Target… Proof Positive that “Evangelicals” are Idiots, Bigots, and Bullies

01 Westboro Baptist Church Phelps protestor

_____________________________

Target is allowing “transgendered” people to use the appropriate bathroom. Of course, the fact that they’re using an activist term instead of actual medical terminology allows the Know-Nothing troglodytes to crawl out of the woodwork and caterwaul. If they had said, “Since transsexuality is a known and recognised medical condition, we’re going to allow people to use the appropriate toilets and dressing-rooms”, there would’ve been less of a brouhaha. Yes, idiots like the AFA would still boycott Target… “Evangelicals”, as a rule, are that stupid and bigoted. Here’s a sane person’s response to the boycott:

I don’t have an issue with the new Target bathroom policy… truthfully, I have a bigger issue with the idiots I see open-carrying their hand cannons at Wal-Mart. I see lots of posts on this issue and almost all of them are incorrectly equating the term transgender with predator. Why, that’s as absurd as me asserting that all Christians are religious extremists. Sometimes a bathroom is just a bathroom.

There’s NO evidence that transsexuals (pre- or post-op) are sexual predators. In any case, the population involved isn’t large… about one in 10,000. This situation does tell you about the “Evangelical Mind”… it’s addled, ignorant, and beyond crackbrained. We have those who wish to import such shit into the Church… they’re wrong… wrong in the most corrosive and bigoted way. Oppose them… Paffhausen got the boot for many reasons… wishing to ally us with such mindless “Evangelical” shit was one of the main ones (along with misuse of official monies and lying to the Synod of Bishops).

“Evangelicals” aren’t Christian… go to one of their “services”, you’ll know what I mean. Lex orandi, lex credendi (The law of prayer is the law of belief… or, “How one prays shows how one believes”). If you follow that, why, they believe in nothing, as they have no coherent liturgy or codified worship. How can such people be Christian?

18 April 2016. The Bible Is NOT a Weapon

00 Bible Thumper. 02.04.15

_______________________________

I’ve seen “Christians” use the Bible to attack others incessantly. You see it all the time, sadly enough, especially, amongst “Evangelicals” (and those influenced by them such as Josiah Trenham, Paffhausen, and all konvertsy in general)… they forever quote Scripture, the Fathers, or the Canons out-of-context and without any compassion. They want a “pure” society, and the way that they intend to do it is to persecute and stigmatise all those that they consider “unclean” or “immoral”. They tell you, “The Bible teaches that”. It does NOT… emphatically. Prove to me that Christ used either force or the legal authorities to compel people to follow Him, then, I’d believe you.

I don’t think that such proof is forthcoming… not now… not later. Vacuous hatred and Know-Nothing bigotry isn’t Christian… that’s that.

17 April 2016. THIS is What the Pro-Life Movement Really Wants

00 Mike Peters. I Had a Miscarriage. 2016. pro-lifers

______________________________

The so-called “Pro-Life” Movement and its Republican puppeteers want to criminalise abortion. That’s not how you end it… that’s not how you react to it in a Christian way. In Indiana, a woman sits in prison because rightwing nutters accused her of not doing enough to save her foetus. That’s evil, and the fact that those who claim to be “Christian” support such shit besmirches True Christianity (American Radical Sectarianism is an Antichristian movement utterly at odds with Christianity, let alone Our Lord Christ and His Church). The Church doesn’t teach that we should illegalise abortion… it teaches that we should do everything that we can to minimise it (there are cases where it’s medically indicated, sadly enough), but not stigmatise the women caught up in it. This doesn’t suit the semi-“Evangelical” konvertsy. I’d simply say that the Church exercises oikonomia and that these toddlers hate such accommodations.

If you advocate that women caught up in such tragic situation deserve prison, you’re evil and I’ll oppose you. I’m not alone in thinking that way…

17 April 2016. Donald Trump Trumpets Hatred of Muslims… Here’s the Church’s Response

00 all of islam stands in the dock. 160416

______________________________

Let’s keep it simple… the Church condemns all forms of bigotry. Ergo, the Republican Nativist hate being channeled by Donald Trump is evil and all decent people (let alone just Christians) must oppose it. In like manner, the Church condemns warmongering and adventuring in foreign parts… therefore, all decent folks must oppose all Republicans and Dems such as Chilly Hilly. Hate is the opposite of and the total absence of love… Christ incarnated Love… therefore, all those who advocate hate (indeed, bigotry and warmongering are hatred to the nth degree) can NEVER be true followers of the Lord Christ. Bear that in mind as you hear the rants of the “religious”… I do daresay that such reveals them as satanic imposters, doesn’t it?
