Jeebus weeps

Blessed are the peacemakers, amiright?

End-times grifter Scott Lively just wants to make the world a better, more peaceful place before Jeebus returns with his flaming sword and kills everyone while the people who led good lives (and thus deserved healthcare?) get raptured up to Hebbin in the nude and look down on the slaughter with grim satisfaction.

Anyway, he’s probably gonna win the Knob Bell Trophy thingie for this bright idea to bring world peace: Christian, Moslem and Jewish Common Ground: Reminding the Children of Abraham to Oppose the Common Enemy of Secular Humanism and Stand Firm for Family Values.

Yes, he wants to unite theocrats of the Big Three Religions to find common enemy in the ‘mos:

In essence, the left is promising Moslems political power in exchange for acquiescing to the LGBT agenda and taking sides with the “gays” against Bible-believing Christians (and Torah-faithful Jews). The strategy appears to have worked in England and the European Union, where there are numerous pro-LGBT Moslem political leaders now in office, and it is spreading rapidly in America where it serves as another cynical Democrat maneuver to win elections…

…I therefore issue the following statement of principle as the formal starting point for my pursuit of a broader Letter of Understanding:

“Notwithstanding deep theological and other differences, the people of the Abrahamic faiths strongly agree that homosexuality and related forms of sexual and gender deviance must be not be legitimized in public policy, but opposed through non-violent means that respect the inherent value of persons who struggle with these reversible disorders.”

    Ok then. It’s so sad that the “Abrahamic” faiths don’t understand tolerance and letting people live their lives peacefully without interference.

    That bit about ‘non-violent means’ really doesn’t sound convincing.

    Anyone who uses the term “Torah-faithful Jews” should shut the hell up and go back to Comparative Religion 101.

    Homosexuality IS referenced a few times in the Bible: in obscure corners off of less-trodden corridors. Meanwhile, ADULTERY is right there in the Top Ten, the Ten Commandments…
    and yet…
    they never seem to get too upset about that one.
    Or usury
    or greed (one of the Seven Deadly Sins)

  9. Oh, God said to Abraham, “Kill me a son”
    Abe said, “Man, you must be puttin’ me on”
    God said, “No” Abe say, “What?”
    God say, “You can do what you want, Abe, but
    The next time you see me comin’, you better run”
    Well, Abe said, “Where d’you want this killin’ done?”
    God said, “Out on Highway 61”

    recently i have formed an intention to read erich fromm’s book you shall be as gods, which is available as an ebook for ten bucks

    You Shall Be As Gods: A Radical Interpretation of the Old Testament and its Tradition
    Erich Fromm
    Open Road Media, Feb 26, 2013 – Religion – 241 pages

    The Old Testament is one of the most carefully studied books in the world’s history. It is also one of the most misunderstood. This founding text of the world’s three largest religions is also, Erich Fromm argues, an impressive radical humanist text. He sees the stories of mankind’s transition from divided clans to united brotherhood as a tribute to the human power to overcome. Filled with hopeful symbolism, You Shall Be As Gods shows how the Old Testament and its tradition is an inspiring ode to human potential. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Erich Fromm including rare images and never-before-seen documents from the author’s estate.
