Theocratic secessionist, former Constitution Party Goat Rodeo Rider and local county council candidate in Maryland Michael Peroutka was shocked! Shocked! SHOCKED! to learn that one of the organizations he belongs to holds racist views!
Peroutka has left the League of the South:
Peroutka, a Millersville Republican, said he left the group prior to Labor Day because he discovered statements members made on the subject of being opposed to interracial marriage were “contrary to my beliefs.” He would not elaborate.
Well, good for him, I guess. Wait, what’s that?
I’m sure his resignation was sincere.
Not even a week ago we told you about that Winston Churchill-like independent candidate running for governor of Massachusetts, our old pal and dissembling theocrat Scott Lively. And Churchill like, he is now starring in a Russian anti-gay documentary:
We mention this only because Lively’s international cred is usually hitched to Uganda’s Kill The Gays legislation, so he’s building quite a foreign policy portfolio.
Blake Carrington Phil Robertsons’ nephew Zach Dasher (described by the Big Duck hisself as, “my little nephew who came from the loins of my sister.” Eew!) is challenging the incumbent kissing Congressman Vance McAllister:
“Am I going to talk about the entitlement mindset of nearly half of our country that is really going to end in utter despair if we don’t do something about it? Am I going to talk about how this swift drift away from God will usher in tyranny and death?”
I bet he will. He cannot seem to leave Sweet Baby Jeebus alone.
Anyway, L’il Ducky has an interesting twist in his campaign HQ: there is an envelope taped to his door where friends and donors can drop off prayers and scriptures for the candidate:
Dasher has put his faith front and center during the race. The campaign headquarters in West Monroe features an envelope taped to the outside of the glass door, instructing supporters to “leave your your prayers or scriptures.” In an appearance on Fox News in June, he told Sean Hannity, “My platform begins with God.”
There’s so much more Jeebus-flavored wisdom from L’il Ducky in Mother Jones.
From Canadian-born latino and immigrant-hating southern white supremacist Senator Ted Cruz’s Senate Web page:
“This is judicial activism at its worst. The Constitution entrusts state legislatures, elected by the People, to define marriage consistent with the values and mores of their citizens. Unelected judges should not be imposing their policy preferences to subvert the considered judgments of democratically elected legislatures.
But what about judges appointed by democratically elected presidents and confirmed by the Senate, Ted? What about those people whose jobs are in the Constitution, you know, to ensure that laws pass Constitutional muster?
“Marriage is a question for the States. That is why I have introduced legislation, S. 2024, to protect the authority of state legislatures to define marriage. And that is why, when Congress returns to session, I will be introducing a constitutional amendment to prevent the federal government or the courts from attacking or striking down state marriage laws.
So Cruz will introduce legislation that will amend the Constitution to prevent the Supreme Court from ruling on The Constitutionality of laws?
Well, I’m certain that this is playing really well in Jebusland, and that’s all that counts. Theocrat Cruz must be hoovering in the bucks from the rubes in Lubbock.
Tax ‘em. They are doing political work and preaching from the pulpit, and yes: his show on the electronic TeeVee machine is indeed a pulpit.
Muslim academic gets death threats over women and gay-friendly mosque
A Muslim academic is vowing to push ahead with the launch of his woman and gay-friendly mosque in South Africa, despite receiving death threats.
Taj Hargey, director of the Muslim Educational Centre of Oxford, a group of “forward thinking” Muslims, said his Open Mosque will welcome all genders, religions and sexual orientations when it opens in Wynberg, a Cape Town suburb, on Friday
In an unrelated bit of news, Rev. Fishsticks was not seen looking up the country code for phoning South Africa.
Teen Could Get Two Years for Facebook Photos with Jesus Statue
Some horned-up teen is facing criminal charges and up to two years in a juvie for posting pictures on his MyFace wall of him getting a beejay from a statue of Jesus. “Eat, for this is my body” takes on a new meaning. The picture is kinda funny, but that there is a statute on the books for “Desecration of a Venerated Object” is not.
The Blog’s old pals, One-L, Screwie Louie, and Cruz Missile participated in David Barton’s WallBuilder’s Pastoral Briefing in Sodom and Gomorrah East, Washington DC.
There’s not a chance that we can survive this much stupid in one place.
And here’s our sermon for today, courtesy of Mark Driscoll the founder of Mars Hill Church, the mega church based in Seattle:
“Ultimately, God created you and it is his penis. You are simply borrowing it for a while,” Driscoll wrote under the name William Wallace II in 2001. “Knowing that His penis would need a home, God created a woman to be your wife and when you marry her and look down you will notice that your wife is shaped differently than you and makes a very nice home.”
“Therefore, if you are single you must remember that your penis is homeless and needs a home,” he continued. “But, though you may believe your hand is shaped like a home, it is not… And, if you look at a man it is quite obvious that what a homeless man does not need is another man without a home.”
So, women only exist as place for men to park their peens? And as for men? You are nothing more than your dick? On loan from God?
The local stories on people (men) escaping this church usually have one common thread: Mr. Driscoll seems to interfere with their relationships with the women in their lives. They have counseling sessions where they try to make men talk about their sexual experiences, they have to approve of who the men are dating, and get permission to marry. If the reports are true, it sounds like a very creepy way to maintain control over a flock of (probably low esteem) men. From what I understand, women are not part of congregation.
Also, too: note that Storyville Coffee Company is wholly owned by Mars Hill Church and it is where they do a lot of their recruiting.
We’ve talked about Mars Church’s Driscoll before. You may recall that he was at the center of gaming the NYTimes Best Seller list earlier this year. Y’all Qaeda is strong in this one.
What was once billed as a Catholic event can no longer be called such,” Barber tells OneNewsNow. “They are openly allowing a sin-based organization to march in their parade and to effectively put their stamp of approval on what the Bible unequivocally calls sinful behavior.”
Faith-based organizations that want to remain loyal to the Bible have a decision to make as to whether to participate. Barber offers a suggestion.
“Some faith-based organizations could carry banners and so forth exclaiming the truths of scripture relative to homosexual sin,” he suggests. “[They could] use the opportunity to denounce what the New York City St. Patrick’s Parade organization has done here and to take them to task for casting aside the truths of scripture and disobeying the teachings of Christ.”
–Matt Barber, the man who thinks about hot, sweaty man-on-man sex with thighs like pistons that can pump all night, suggests how to respond to gay groups who will (finally) be allowed to march in the New York City St. Patrick’s Day Parade. (One News Now)
