PERVERTING CHRISTIANITY

From WAFB:

Scores of Maine churches will pass the collection plate a second time at Sunday services on Father’s Day to kick off a fundraising campaign for the lead opposition group to November’s ballot question asking voters to legalize same-sex marriages. Between 150 and 200 churches are expected to raise money for the Protect Marriage Maine political action committee, said Carroll Conley Jr., executive director of the Christian Civic League of Maine evangelical organization and a member of the PAC. Conley is also trying to drum up support for the Maine campaign from religious leaders from around the country.

There is only one word to describe these perverters of the Gospel of Christ and it is the word “evil.” We’re not supposed to compare people to Nazis on blogs but, come on, can anybody think of of a more apt description for these extreme, right wing bigots.

They are fascists and the United States is on the brink of becoming a fascist state. If you don’t believe me check out the musical, “Cabaret” and join the dots.

PERVERTING CHRISTIANITY — 7 Comments

  1. I once got in trouble for playing, “Tomorrow Belongs to Me” at the end of a radio commentary piece that was critical of the FL House of Representatives. It was a fitting piece of music, but right-wingers tend to be very thinned-skinned.
    We are supposed to have separation of church and state in this country. If these churches are raising funds for a PAC, then someone should file a complaint and get their tax-exempt status revoked. And the Christians who do NOT support such hate and discrimination need to led their support to the groups fighting for marriage equality in Maine.

  2. In all honesty I’m beginning to think that we ought to start a new religion with a new name. I’m getting fed up of spending so much time distancing us from these vile people who have stolen the name of Christ for their decidedly unchristian campaigns of hatred and greed. It would be really great to be able to preach the good news without having to get passed the preconceived ideas of what Christianity is about that these evangelicals have instilled in the minds of non-believers.

  3. Churches should lose their tax-exempt status anyway; it’s a joke listening to someone saying “The government is Caesar! (and I’ve heard this from the “progressive left” at least as much as from the “traditional values right”) and then scream like a 7 year-old deprived of ice cream when they don’t get enough tax breaks or they don’t think they’re treated with due seriousness by some official or office.
    Think “Caesar” is drenched in blood? Then don’t take “his” money.

  4. Meanwhile, in Washington State, the news this morning tells us that enough names have been collected to put the marriage equality law signed by the governor, may God bless her, to a vote of state residents.

  5. Thanks for that update, KJ. Watch how the churches in WA behave over the next months. Pay attention to the money. This vote (and the process leading up to it) will be epic, no matter which way the count goes.
