Well, this is a really awesome comic that The Oatmeal created. My buddy John H made a song about said comic. It is win.
Here is the song
Enjoy my minions~
So a friend on FB (his name is John) posted a blog entry about a group of people calling themselves “Christians for a Moral America”.
This is the definition of moral:
a : of or relating to principles of right and wrong in behavior :ethical <moral judgments>b : expressing or teaching a conception of right behavior <amoral poem>c : conforming to a standard of right behaviord : sanctioned by or operative on one’s conscience or ethical judgment <a moral obligation>e : capable of right and wrong action <a moral agent>
I looked at the twitter entries Keith(that’s the dude’s name) placed about George Micheal and praying for his death, and I have come to this conclusion:
That word,moral, I do not think it means what they believe it means. Yes I just butchered Princess Bride. Anyway, if we take the base idea of “moral” and apply it to the way Keith and his illadvised flock act, we would find that these two things would be far from each other. How far? As far as the east is from the west(yes I just got all biblical).
I do not care what religion a person follows, but when they start going on and on about how we need to pray for “this” person to die and “that” person to die, someone needs to call them on it. I mean like go off on them with huge words, scriptures, and show them the REALLY REALLY large house in their eye while they are looking for an invisible speck in George Micheal’s.
And what makes it even worse is that they are saying that the guy has AIDS. Okay, let’s back up a minute and realize something about HIV/AIDS:
Not every gay man has it
Not every black person has it
Heck, it isn’t even a death sentence anymore. You still die, but you won’t look like the walking dead.
Did I mention they are working on a cure?
Anyway, so here we have some god-botherers on twitter saying “Pray for his death so he can roast in hell!!” and “I heard he has AIDS. You know that’s part and parcel of what “they” do”.
This is not even one iota close to the Christianity I loved as a kid. Heck, it’s not even close to the Christianity I research as an adult. This is what happens when you have a bitter, hate-filled person with a narcissist streak and no compassion. I don’t know if this man is a self-hating gay or if he just wants to feel better than everyone else but I do know this is disgusting. It is disgusting in the way that some people would take what this asong babae seriously and go and murder gay people or people who are percieved to be gay.
All under the banner of Christianity. If I were Jesus(which I am not, thank Odin), I would personally visit Keith and his members. Then as they freak out that I am a little Jewish man, I’d pimp slap them so hard that their teeth would play like piano keys. After I got the slap in, I’d sit them down and explain quite calmly that they either need to take a really good look at themselves in the mirror. Because if life was ANYTHING like Dance in the Vampire Bund, their true selves would be nothing but steaming piles of excrement.
But life is not like an anime, but there is a life where people can call people out on being douches. And if these people from “Christians for a Moral America” had any backbone, and were not simpering cowards hiding behind the anominimity of the internet, they’d listen and possibly change their ways. But they won’t because Jeebus is on their side. This same Jeebus, who last time I checked, did not say jack shit about being gay. That was all Paul. Who I strongly suggest was a closet case/spiteful little prick.
I’m not saying they aren’t Christians. That isn’t my job. I am not playing on their team. But I can say that they are the worst representatives for Christ that I have seen thus far. These Christo-fascists are addicted to the idea of being persecuted but without the real work of being a good person. I have an idea. Let’s drop them in the middle of Zambia and just leave them there. Or maybe leave them in Watts wearing either all blue or all red.
But I am doing one better. I am posting their page on the group Wipeout Homophobia on Facebook page, and asking them to help me shut it down.
If you could shut them down(legally) I’d be sehr happi!
