Creech: God Would be Justified in Killing Us All Over Marriage Ruling

Mark Creech, the fanatical fundie preacher who heads the Christian Action League of North Carolina, says that God will punish America for the Supreme Court’s marriage ruling. And God would be perfectly justified in raining down fire and brimstone to commit genocide on us for it.

It is not likely fire and brimstone will fall on America immediately because of this decision, although God would certainly be justified in doing it. Nevertheless, this national sin is more apt to bring its own punishments over time. Although many will think it hyperbolic to say, the state sanctioning of gay marriage will eventually destroy traditional marriage.

For those of us who have fought to preserve real marriage, we pledge ourselves anew to do battle against its counterfeit, same-sex marriage, on every level. We shall tirelessly endeavor to protect religious liberty and the “full exercise thereof.” We shall not comply with such unjust laws, for to resist tyranny is to obey God. We shall pray. We shall preach. We shall prepare to use every righteous means available to overturn this injustice, no matter how long it takes.

The God these people worship sounds like a mafia kingpin, doesn’t he? “Look, you crossed the wrong guy and he’d be justified in putting you in cement shoes and sinking you to the bottom of the Hudson river. But he’s feeling very magnanimous today and he’s gonna let you off with just breaking your legs.” What a great guy.

    When will these conservative christians stop projecting their secret desires through their god and just admit they want to go all Final Solution on everyone they don’t like?

    Although many will think it hyperbolic to say, the state sanctioning of gay marriage will eventually destroy traditional marriage.

    As so many others are pointing out, this is at least partly true for values of “traditional marriage” that include women being inescapably inferior to men.

    The next question is, of course, “so where is the downside?”

    Oh, better words might be “nuts,” “insane,” “stupid,” “moronic,” “lunatic,” … well, you get the idea.

    …the state sanctioning of gay marriage will eventually destroy traditional marriage.

    How so? Will gay marriage be so much better than straight marriage that straight couples will divorce en masse in order to get in on the gay good times?

    You laugh now, but God is already striking us down, with drought, fires, and heat waves! He’s Warming the Global!

  • grumpyoldfart

    If god even thinks about sending fire and brimstone on America I’ll spank his little bottom for him. [He hates when I do that.]

    Hey, we enacted marriage equality in Canada so God foisted Stephen Harper on us! But because USAmericans are His Chosen People so your punishment will be even worse, well… Hello, President Trump.

    “To resist tyranny is to obey God.”

    Um, I thought that God said any rebellion is wrong. Maybe that’s another one of those “mistranslation” loopholes that believers lie about, i mean invent.

    If god is so pissed, why isn’t s/he taking immediate action smiting us? It seems to me, god is a Klingon, who, as you may know, have a saying: Revenge is a dish best served cold.

    Watch your back, kids. This psychotic god-thingy could strike any time.

  • Alverant

    @Larry I thought Klingons were also in favor of getting up close and personal, announcing who they are and why they’re doing things and not randomly smiting things.

    The difference is that Klingons are honorable.

    Such pronouncements are a fundy bait and switch.

    According to their theology “original sin” means your default destination is Hell anyway.

    It is my information that ole Stepho’s party got 39% of the vote and won because the opposition was divided. Hardly a ringing victory.

    If anything rains fire and brimstone on us it will be the mega-volcano beneath Yellowstone. Could happen too. Not because of SSM but because the Earth moves.

    God Would be Justified in Killing Us All Over Marriage Ruling

    God is always justified in killing anyone he chooses. That’s what that whole “is god a moral monster?” thing is all about. God is not a moral monster, because morality is defined by god such that he is always right – so anything god does is good and justified. Scrabbling around for excuses as to why he’s just not justified in killing us all over this or that is a heresy that implies that he needs justifications for anything. If god’s hungry for blood, then it’s good and he’s justified. Reasons don’t mean a thing, and I’d expect True Christians to understand that.

    I’m so glad I know there are Christians who’re able to recoil in horror from that and deny that the blood-fiend depicted in the bible is their god.

    Novelist Robert Fish said it better: Revenge is a cold supper on an empty plate.

    No. You’re forgeting that it’s 39% metric. That’s, like 118 fluid ounces.

    You’re close. Mr. Harper’s party got 39% of the vote and won because our ridiculously antiquated and undemocratic single-member-plurality voting system handed him a majority of seats in the Commons.

  • xuuths

    These christianists are directly disobeying the bible — Romans 13 is clear that you are to obey the government, and to do otherwise is to bring damnation upon yourself. No loopholes.

    But, then, being ignorant about the bible, ignoring the parts they don’t like, lying about what it says, are typical for christianists. The more they speak, and their hypocrisy is manifest, the more people become atheists.

    And submit to his tyranny instead.

    Any xians here? Help me out.

    Is this the abusive parent god, the homicidal maniac god, or the terrorist god? There are so many different Dark Side xian gods, it is easy to get them confused.

    Jason beat me to the punch. Still, let me add on.

    This is some shenanigans on the level of 1984 double-speak. The Christian notion of god is the ultimate tyrant. They’re welcoming tyranny with open arms.

    Only if He’s real.

    Otherwise, He is the safest tyrant ever. Always agrees with you. 😉

    Not on your life, jnorris! When the Christian Action League assembles, you can count on them to take the fight back to the Gay Mafia, armed with the power of the Hyperbolic Projection Cannon…aaaaaaaaaaand Jesus!
