Gary Cass Contradicts Himself

Gary Cass, the ridiculous leader of the Christian Anti-Defamation Commission, says that Romney must renounce Mormonism’s hostility toward Christianity. Mormonism is anti-Christian, you see, because it rejects the trinity. He writes:

Mega church Pastor Joel Osteen said Mormon Presidential candidate, Mitt Romney, is a believer in Christ just like him. But Mormonism has always been at odds with Christianity and openly denies the Trinity and the gospel of grace.

You know who else denied the trinity and the “gospel of grace”? Thomas Jefferson, John Adams and Ben Franklin, the three principal authors of the Declaration of Independence. And yet on the same website, Cass rails against evil secularists who have pushed the nation to abandon the Christian faith expressed in that very document.

The battle for the Constitution and its principles is raging in America. We are losing the battle for liberty because by and large as a nation we have abandoned the moral and philosophical underpinnings of the Constitution. These foundational principles are clearly enumerated in the Declaration of Independence and have been the guiding light to our nation from its founding through our greatest times of national turmoil…

The need for constitutionally separated, enumerated and limited governmental power is reflective of the prevailing Christian legal, anthropological and sociological truths in the Declaration.

When Mitt Romney denies the trinity, he’s obviously “at odds with Christianity.” When Jefferson, Adams and Franklin do the same, they are grounding their philosophy in Christian truths. Funny, that.

    Those aren’t contradictions. Both statements can be condensed as “do what I say” based on half truths and whole lies…

  • Randomfactor

    Is he actually arguing that we have three branches of government because of the doctrine of the trinity? Is the Supreme Court supposed to represent the Holy Spook then? So it’s unforgivable if they deny SCOTUS rulings?

    Somehow, I don’t associated separation of powers and limited rule with a God who proclaims “Thou shalt have no other God before me,” and “for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me.”

    Mormonism has always been at odds with xianity. That is true.

    But xianity has always been at odds with itself from the very beginning. First against the Jews, then the xian Jews, Gnostic, Arians, Marcionites, Nestorians, Albigensians, Eastern Orthodox, Protestants, Huegenots, and on to the present day.

    The xian noosphere consists of 42,000 sects and is fragmenting rapidly. Each one of course is The One True Sect.

    The Roman Catholic church also denies the gospel of grace. Protestants mostly believe in salvation through faith that jesus is god. Catholics add good works to that as well. This might seem trivial but the battles over it killed tens of millions and ended a whole 12 years ago in Northern Ireland.

    Cass probably won’t mention that. There are supposedly 68 million US Catholics and he might need them to battle his other hates.

    … Christian legal, anthropological and sociological truths …

    Uh wot?

  • anandine

    I know Gary Cass in passing. He was a preacher and school board member in my area of San Diego. He is a sociopath and has as low a standard for truth as anybody I have ever seen.

    … Christian legal, anthropological and sociological truths …

    Uh wot?

    Yeah, I was wondering that too.

    Just what are those Christian legal, anthropological, and sociological truths anyway?

    Many of the heroes in the bible were kings or patriarchs and democracy isn’t mentioned at all. Jesus is supposed to come back as king of the world.

    Oh well, since that is bafflegab, we won’t get an answer from him. Most likely it reduces down to sending him money.

    At least he didn’t refer to xian scientific truths such as the Flat Earth or the big sky dome with lights stuck on it.

    …limited governmental power is reflective of the prevailing Christian… truths in the Declaration.

    OK, this should be easy. Just point to the word “Jesus” in the DOI or Constitution.

    Go ahead Gary. I’ll wait.

    It’s also ironic that Islam is a religion which considers Jesus a prophet from God rather than God.

  • interrobang

    Michael Heath: Yeah, whenever one of these idiots starts blathering about “Judeo-Christian” this or that, I think to myself, “the only actual ‘Judeo-Christian’ religion I know of is Islam.” (I’ve read the Qu’ran in the Pickthall English translation. I was amazed at how syncretic of the other major Abrahamic religions the Qu’ran is.)

    I’ve said it once I’ll say it again:

    It doesn’t matter if you’re a Catholic, Baptist, Pentacostal, Quaker, or Mormon. It doesn’t matter what theological minutiae (e.g. The Trinity, pre/post-tribulaution, free will v. predestination, etc.) you and other sects quibble over. It doesn’t matter if you think your alleged “savior” would want to nationalize health care and ban handguns or cut taxes and publicly execute homosexuals.

    As long as your religion revolves around a character named “Jesus Christ,” IT’S CHRISTIAN!!!

    Good works indeed …

    I started taking Christian anthropology in university but switched to Christian paleontology mid-semester. There was less studying involved.
