Bresciani: Scott Lively Just Like Jesus

Michael Bresciani fired up his hyperbole machine and wrote a column comparing unhinged bigot Scott Lively to Jesus himself for his brave stand against equality. Like Jesus, he says, Lively is fighting against the “demonic doctrine” of homosexuality, a subject Jesus never mentions in the gospels.

In his day Christ constantly rebuked the religious leaders for their hypocrisy and for misleading people from acknowledging that God was doing something new in their time. While clinging to the old revelation they were leading their followers down the path to hell.

Looking at the scribes and Pharisees eye to eye, Christ rebuked them with what may have seemed a harsh message for his time and what may soon become an illegal message in our time. Let’s see.

Openly rebuking the leaders of the massive temple worship system of his day would be the equivalent of scolding both the leaders of today’s apostate church and just about everyone involved in politics from the President to the local politician…

One recent example is gubernatorial candidate Scott Lively of Massachusetts. Up east in the most liberal state in the union, candidate Scott Lively openly declared that he would never do anything to further the homo-agenda, especially as it pertains to the indoctrination of children…

he error of all LGBT communications is simple – it is a teaching, an agenda and a demonic doctrine of men. It is a cunningly devised fable (2Pet 1: 16) placed against the revealed will of God regarding homosexuality…

In the great debate called God said – man said, only losers will take the side of modern man as these last days approach. The motives and agenda of the LGBT are a poor substitute for the authority of the Living God…

The biggest whopper ever produced by LGBT is without doubt the “born this way” argument. Without a stitch of scientific evidence this has to be one of the greatest lies of the twenty first century. It has been proclaimed and now it’s the, ‘thus sayeth the lord’ – of the devil himself.

Without a “gay gene” it would seem only fair to proclaim that murderers, thieves, rapists, extortioners, serial killers and child molesters are after all – just born that way. Where is the movement to have them all released from prisons and restored to their rightful place in society as good citizens who just happen to be – born that way.

Not the sharpest bulb in the sign, this guy.

    Well, for the thieves, I’d say: after their sentence has run. Or is he advocating life imprisonment for theft?

    Interestingly enough, though, Jesus does talk about Sodom. In Matthew 10, Matthew 11 and Luke 10 (all the same basic story, with variations), Jesus sends out a group of followers to preach. They are told that if the townsfolk do not accept the teachings, to leave, shake the town’s dust from their sandals, and move on for “Truly, I say to you, it shall be more tolerable on the day of judgment for the land of Sodom and Gomor’rah than for that town.” (Matt 10:15). Why? Because of inhospitality and refusal to listen to God’s word, not because of homosexual rape.

    Brace yourselves for a new buzzword from the spittle-spewing anti-gay religious right. Über-Catholic Michael Voris has a video warning people about the dangers of “homofascism.” Apparently western civilization is in grave danger! Again.

    I think that Bresciani needs to read his Gospels again. If I recall correctly, when Jesus rebuked the Pharisees and the scribes it wasn’t for neglecting their religious doctrines — it was for exactly the opposite. It was for putting too much emphasis on obeying their religious doctrine and forgetting that they were dealing with real people trying to live real lives in the real world.

    It’s actually Bresciani and his ilk who come closest to the Pharisees and scribes who were rebuked by Jesus.

    What do you mean Jesus never spoke about homosexuality? What about Mark 7:14-15?

  • dugglebogey

    I’m looking forward to the time that some Christian leaders recognize the writing on the wall and embrace equality as “the right thing to do” and the old-school fundamentalists go to war with them.

    Maybe we’ll even get another major denomination out of it. HomoAngloBapticals.

    Chiroptera beat me to the punch Pharisees were the conservatives to the liberal Jesus.

    I’ve read the gospels about what Jesus is supposed to have said and done and I can find not relation to what conservative Christians say and do.

    Like the Rapture, the persecution and mass-martyrdom of Christians has been COMING REAL SOON NOW for decades. Always jam tomorrow, but never jam today…

    In the great debate called God said – man said, only losers will take the side of modern man as these last days approach.

    “God said – man said,” eh? Funny you should say that, because God has been curiously silent on the issue. Oh, sure, you claim to be speaking for him, but so do plenty of others on the equality side — and their exegeses are at least as valid as yours. (They’re certainly more internally consistent.) To me this looks a lot more like a “man said – man said” issue.

    I just hope plenty of people remember all this. In a generation the would-be theocrats will claim they supported gay rights all along. Don’t let them get away with it.

    Actually, it’s a lie from the twentieth century, but that’s hair-splitting. If one were to rely on actual, you know, scientific research, one would find that there is not a reputable leading scientific (either hard or social science) organization that doesn’t agree that all sexuality has a biological origin. One would find that twin studies indicate a greater genetic influence on sexuality than on left- or right-handedness. One would find that there has never been a scientifically documented case of sexual orientation change in the known literature (all studies purporting to show such effects relied purely on self-identification by the subject, not physiological measures). But that would require a reliance on, you know, facts.

    Nope. If the people who wrote sermons and attributed them to JC had anything critical to say about “Caesar” or “Rome”, their files got deleted so thoroughly (see Titus Vespasianus Augustus) we have no evidence for them at all now. From the records available, a few obscure mutterings about “Babylon” constitute the high-water mark of early-Christianist political defiance of the status quo; mostly they talked up submissiveness and capitulation (e.g., Romans 13:10).

    In his day Christ constantly rebuked the religious leaders for their hypocrisy and for misleading people from acknowledging that God was doing something new in their time. While clinging to the old revelation they were leading their followers down the path to hell.

    Um … so Christ was telling them that the “old revelation” was no longer valid (which is fine with most Christians today when it comes to eating shellfish and wearing cotton/wool clothes). So Leviticus, which calls for secular penalties for male on male sex (but not for lesbian sex) is no longer valid?

    Paul, that old misogynist, didn’t like male on male or female on female sex, but did not call for any civil penalties for either.

    So, basically, you are taking the role of those old religious leaders were leading their followers down the path to hell?

    Bresciani: In his day Christ constantly rebuked the religious leaders for their hypocrisy and for misleading people from acknowledging that God was doing something new in their time. While clinging to the old revelation they were leading their followers down the path to hell.

    And yet, even though his Jesus dates to 2,000 years ago, Mark Bresciani rejects the idea that his god might be doing something new today. In fact, much like the Pharisees, he seems to base his warnings on the Old Testament.

    Oops — make that “Michael Bresciani.”

    Michael Bresciani fired up his hyperbole machine and wrote a column comparing unhinged bigot Scott Lively to Jesus himself for his brave stand against equality.

    The one comment on that column consists of a single word: “stupidity.”

    Let the troubador sing, “Brave, brave, brave Scott Lively…”

    I, for one, pray that Scott Lively’s future fights against queerness and queer people will be precisely as numerous and effective as those of Jesus.

    Amen.

    Without a “gay gene” it would seem only fair to proclaim that murderers, thieves, rapists, extortioners, serial killers and child molesters are after all – just born that way. Where is the movement to have them all released from prisons and restored to their rightful place in society as good citizens who just happen to be – born that way.

    I find it fascinating that he seems to think we only lock up murderers and rapists because we don’t like them, not because they, you know, hurt people. In fact, it’s not unreasonable to posit that some murderers and rapists *are* “born that way” if they’re psychopaths. While it’s reasonable to pity those people (it’d really suck, for instance, to have a mind that’s naturally sexually attracted to children), we still need to punish them if they hurt people. Gays, on the other hand, aren’t hurting anybody. We’ll prosecute gays when they hurt people just like we prosecute anybody else.
