Wingnut: Gays, Nazis, Stalin, Satan…You Know the Drill

I wonder if Microsoft Word has a template yet for deranged right-wing screeds against same-sex marriage. It would be so easy to do. You could have a dropdown menu for them to choose from: Satan, demons, Hitler, Stalin, Mao, Marx. It looks like Sylvia Thompson is already using it:

In a few months, five god-wannabes on the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) will issue an edict that enshrines homosexual sodomy into American law. There is the possibility that sanity and decency will reign and the Justices will take a lesson from the abortion ruling of some forty years ago – a ruling that tarnished the soul of America and is still being protested to this day. Given the rotted state of American culture and the deeply flawed occupants of the current court, that possibility is slim. What remains to be seen is if biblical Christians will bow to this travesty against Almighty God as they did to the killing of the unborn.

Unlike the abortion ruling that targeted only those involved directly or indirectly with women’s health, criminalizing an opposition to sodomy (which a ruling to force homosexual marriage upon the states would effectively do) affects all biblical Christians. This ruling would render us de facto criminals, unable to uphold that law. We cannot accept homosexual behavior or any other sexual behaviors condemned by God, including adultery, fornication, incest or bestiality….

Although it is destined to get worse, the persecution of Christians in America has already begun. Homosexual activists have targeted many individuals and businesses solely because they are Christian. Steadfast Christians such as J. Matt Barber and Peter LaBarbara of AFTAH (Americans for Truth about Homosexuality), among others, have chronicled many such accounts. Christians are being dragged through the legal system by homosexuals riding the wave of immoral filth that Barack Obama and others of his ilk have visited upon the country.

This ruling, if rendered, will be purely a lawless decision aimed at the destruction of Judeo-Christianity, because its truths are the only impediment to the rampant hedonism that is the homosexual movement. Criminalizing Christianity in America paves the way for unbridled persecution of Christians under law. Throughout the ages, Satan’s game plan has not changed. Hitler’s Nazis did it, Stalin’s communists did it, and Islam’s faithful are doing it to this day. Persecuting Christians.

In keeping with Satan’s game plan, some churches will champion a ruling in favor of the sin of homosexual marriage. They will do so in the name of an unscriptural view of love and judgment. These are the “motivational speakers” masquerading as ministers of God (Joel Osteen and other mega-church icons and mainline religious leaders) who preach their own version of Holy Scripture and excel in misleading the flock of Christ.

*yawn* Wake me up when any of this stuff actually happens.

    Some bored undergraduate needs to train one of those ubiquitous Markov chain generators to produce these screeds. Probably far more entertaining than drop down boxes.

    “Hitler’s Nazis did it, Stalin’s communists did it, and Islam’s faithful are doing it to this day. ”

    Ironically, a trifecta of movements that persecutes/persecuted homosexuals.

    So SCOTUS is going to listen to arguments about the legal status of same sex marriage and then issue a ruling on the unrelated question of whether Christians are allowed to be homophobic?

    Oooh! Are they picking out other Christians as their new target for hate? Naw, they’ve done that forever but they had been playing it down of late.

    unscriptural view of love and judgment

    Mark 12:31 The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no commandment greater than these.”

    Matthew 7:1-3 1 Judge not, that ye be not judged. 2 For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again. 3 And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?

    Well that was easy

    And you forfeit one point for leaving out the “Hussein”!

    @5 Given Slyvia Thompson is likely either a protestant heretic or a papist restarting inter-Christian violence is probably not in her interest, if she was smart enough to realise.

  • karmacat

    So if homosexual sodomy is “enshrined in the law,” does that mean we all have to do it? Or is that what Sylvia Thompson is hoping for?

    I like the part about forcing homosexual marriage upon the states. Does that mean South Carolina and North Carolina will have to marry? What about Florida? I mean, it sort of sounds like a girl’s name but it’s got that big ol’ penis pointing right at Cuba.

    And again with the incest and bestiality! If I call one of my male offspring a son-of-a-bitch, can I marry him twice? Do I owe him twice the alimony if we divorce? It’s so hard to keep up.

    I love hearing about Osteen’s spreadsheets!

    We cannot accept homosexual behavior or any other sexual behaviors condemned by God, including adultery, fornication, incest or bestiality….

    With the possible exception of that last one none of those behaviors are illegal. Nor is there a running campaign to make them so.

    In fact, Christians seem to have made their peace with dealing with “fornicators” — how many Valentine’s Day cake buyers had to explain whether or not their romance had gone “all the way?” From what I can tell hotels, motels, and bed & breakfasts all have at least a ‘don’t ask don’t tell’ policy on adultery, fornication, and incest. Bestiality is obviously less acceptable, in that a lot of places are explicitly not “pet friendly.”

    A lawless law? That *is* terrifying. Marriage equality is destroying logic itself!

    No, if anything gets “enshrined into American law,” it will be “mind your own business.”

  • caseloweraz

    Thompson: In a few months, five god-wannabes on the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) will issue an edict that enshrines homosexual sodomy into American law.

    First, how does she know the “for” and “against” numbers in this future ruling? She doesn’t.

    Second, why doesn’t she know about Lawrence v Texas? It would seem that homosexual sodomy (as well as the heterosexual variety) is already “enshrined” in American law.

    There can be no such MS Word template so long as Excel is misleading the flock of Christ.

    I’d go through line-by-line and debunk this drooling frothing screed, but I’d probably start yelling at the computer screen.

    Some basic points:

    Homosexuality is not, in any way, immoral. Bigots don’t get a pass from criticism or from following the same laws as every body else just because they cite God or Jesus.

    Christians are not being persecuted in America, and they will not face persecution in America in the future. Having to deal with the existence of other people, especially having to deal with it in a mature manner, is not persecution.

    Gay marriage is not about hedonism; it’s about monogamy. Fundies can’t accept that, same as how they can’t accept that gay people are people; they keep referring to gay people as sets of genitals in order to dehumanize them.

    When’s that rocket with the volunteers supposed to blast off for Mars? Because when I read shit like this I want to be in it, and if there’s not enough room just strap me to the nose, or something.

    I’m guessing there will be no fundies on board, because they all know that rocket ships are fakes because there’s no way they could break through god’s firmament and water storage facility in the sky.

    “…its (Christian) truths are the only impediment to the rampant hedonism that is the homosexual movement”

    If just fighting for your right to get married is rampant hedonism, then I guess I’m guilty because I will not stop until I have the right to marry in every state. I will also not stop until we are safe from being fired in every state just for choosing to exercise that right.

    @7: “Gee, what ilk what that be, Sylvia?”

    If that question means what I think it’s supposed to mean, then you should be informed that Mrs. Thompson is herself African-American.

  • dan4

    23: I should add that if I inferred wrongly from Mr. Butler’s question, and if “ilk” was meant to refer to something other than the POTUS’s skin color, then I apologize.
