"We have a God that's sovereign."
....so New Testament theology, according to me a non-bouncer, splits up into
a) 'love thy neighbor' instead of a jillion laws from the Old Testament
b) a harsh book of Matthew
but neither says anything about the LGBTQIAZYXs
How does this guy know Jesus wept?
If he cares so much about what the Old Testament says, why doesn't he become an orthodox Jew?
Sanest Man Alive
I hear there's a reading test to become a Jew, which is probably why he hasn't gotten in already.
Ah-BLOO BLOO BLOO BLOO BLOO!!!!
"Refugees from the sexual revolution..."
HAW HAW HAW!!
If that's not enticement to violent revenge, I don't know what is.
Self-flagellation to follow
After watching this and reading Huckabee's statement;
"The Supreme Court has spoken with a very divided voice on something only the Supreme Being can do-redefine marriage. I will not acquiesce to an imperial court any more than our Founders acquiesced to an imperial British monarch. We must resist and reject judicial tyranny, not retreat."
Isn't this treason?
Might be treasonous in theme, but it likely falls under protected speech. Treason is applied to one's actions, not one's words.
Sedition is a good point, though I'm sure there is a litmus test.
I think there is reason to believe Huckabee's meaning of 'resist' does not mean _necessarily_ non-lawful means of resistance.
yeah it's right on dog-whistle level
Nah, it's not treasonous. The U.S. has a long tradition of civil disobedience to all levels of governmental decisions. That tradition is one of the few redeeming features of this country.
It's an unfortunate fact that Americans often seem to resort to this tradition for horrible causes. (e.g. forcing the Cherokee on the Trail of Tears, fighting against this Supreme Court ruling, etc.)

Seems suspiciously reasonable and concessionary.. hmmmmm...

Oh wow, a conscious call for Christians to embody the counterculture. So, a return to early Christianity then.
I'm withholding judgment on that until they weigh in on moneylenders and private property in general.
Mr. Purple Cat Esq.
My grandfather (who is about 90) was the principle of a school back in day (Back then Ireland was a 2nd world country, very conservative, and completely dominated by the church, if your interested in just how buttoned down and we were check out the excellent documentary film 'the rocky road to dublin')
Anyway as a school principle my granded was a respected authority figure or sorts in the community, but hes very intelligent and open minded, also has a bit of a devilsh streak. He used to to love to ruffle peoples feathers by asking who was the 1st communist? Theyd reply with Marx etc, and then he'd answer that it was Jesus! Jesus and the apostles shared everything and lived communally.
My grandad is cool!
Yup Purple Cat, your granddad was cool, cause that sounds a lot like the introduction to my 'The Historical Jesus' lecture for History 101.
I can't wait for John Oliver to talk about this.
Yeah I hope this is on This Week's Last Week; I'm not sure how it's done but this was sort of out of the blue: I was driving back from the airport this morning and thought that I was still asleep and dreaming because I can't really concentrate on anything but the road. I think it clicked about an hour ago that this actually happened! Hopefully the writers can work their magic. I mean this is probably the most historic day for human rights that I can remember in my lifetime.
Well, this and ethics in gaming journalism.
You mean it happened? We now have ethics in game journalism? Horray!
Yes, of course.
A fanboy, freebie-loving, concubine-of-the-industry journalist can be totally ethical, as long as he's not a bitch.
This really is an incredible step for both civil rights and schadenfreude.
'Delicious Tears' is my new favorite flavor of hummus.
(It's really just 'Roasted Red Pepper', but today I'm calling it 'Delicious Tears.')
Ewww you ruined roasted red peppers for me just like the homos ruined the bibble
Today's Supreme Court decision didn't even have anything to do with religious ceremony or sex. Not everything is about you, Christianity.
With the same sex ruling, the Obamacare ruling, and all the abandonment of the Confederate flag, this has been a really bad week for boomers.
also announced; for the first time, millenials outnumber baby boomers in America
SUCK IT, GENERATION SHIT
With the same sex ruling, the Obamacare ruling, and all the abandonment of the Confederate flag, this has been a really good week for my boners.
|Binro the Heretic |
You're wrong, Mr. Moore.
THIS IS THE TIME FOR CHRISTIANS TO PANIC!
Followup video: Christians crack each other's heads open and feast on the goo inside.
Look, anytime God wants to come down here and deliver a ruling Himself, we'll allow it. Until then, we got shit to do, man.
If we're going to lure God out of hiding (he's over there! No, wait, that's a raccoon) we need bait. So we'll have to get the Supreme Court to do something guaranteed to really piss Him off so he has to come down and intervene.
Like, have Justice Roberts go, "Okay, we're legalizing polygamous abortion-mandatory man-on-dog marriage now. It's official just as soon as I bring down my gavel...any second now....aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaany second now....sure hope no divine being comes by and stops me...."
I just noticed the irony here.
This guy gets paid to live in Washington DC and go around giving senators handjobs to keep anti-gay agendas a priority.
"The Supreme Court can do many things, but it cannot put Jesus Christ back in the grave."
Well not with that attitude...
