how evangelical Protestantism lost me

"This essay, which represents my first detailed public statement on how evangelical Protestantism lost me, is addressed both to those evangelicals who are celebrating momentum on LGBTQ acceptance within the “big tent,” as well as to those evangelicals whom I would describe as fundamentalist, or fundamental-ish. The ones who still represent the majority of evangelicals, the ones I come from." *** So writes Christopher Stroop, PhD, History and Humanities (Stanford University) and Senior Lecturer, S … [Read more...]

I JUST GOT INTO THE HEADS OF THE GOP CANDIDATES AND LOOK AT THE CRAP I FOUND!

All the GOP candidates for president pledged to fight on following the gay marriage court ruling. Here is what they said BUT I've ADDED MY OWN WORDS to each actual statement in BOLD CAPS to get to the point of what they really mean... IF YOU COULD GET INTO THEIR HEADS...Mike Huckabee, said that while he was certain that “some cowardly politicians will wave the white flag,” he was determined not to bow to a decision he saw as illegitimate. “I will not acquiesce to an imperial court,” he said F … [Read more...]

Here’s Another (Visual) Reason to Keep the Republicans out of the White House

Here's another reason to keep the Republicans out of the White House...they would not light up the White House in the rainbow of colors! Thanks Mr. President! Every single GOP candidate for president blasted the Supreme Court for making gay marriage a right the very same week they blasted them (and filed new lawsuits, no kidding!) for upholding health care for the poor, the very same week they defended the confederate flag. At least the GOP is consistent-- they just hate everyone... except … [Read more...]

Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee is like Some Mafia Thug, Actually Worse

Former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee's actions of late remind me of Season 6 of The Sopranos. Huckabee is like some Mafia thug, actually worse. Tony Soprano never pretended to know Jesus to justify his killings.Huckabee used quotes from Martin Luther King Jr.’s “Letter from a Birmingham Jail” to justify vile death-producing discrimination against gays and lesbians. His statement (at the June 19 March for Marriage rally in Washington D.C.) was against state judges who have legalized gay marr … [Read more...]

World Vision: It’s Never Too Late To Hate

World Vision’s annual budget is $1 billion. When $1 billion is at stake you backtrack. The Evangelical establishment closed ranks against gay men and women signaling to a new generation of Christians that their religion stands for backward stupidity, not to mention hate. World Vision’s move to allow married gay people to work for the organization was denounced by evangelical leaders as a ‘disaster’ betrayal of biblical morality. Christians canceled their child sponsorship.World Vision caved. … [Read more...]

The Only Difference between the Late Fred Phelps and the Evangelical Establishment (Not to Mention Christianity Today Magazine) is that Fred had the Guts to Act on His Evangelical Convictions

Fred Phelps is dead. There’s only one interesting thing about Phelps: He was the mirror that respectable evangelicals hated to look into. The only difference between Fred and, say, the editors of Christianity Today magazine, is that Fred was really, really rude, made less money and got arrested more often. But in the essentials of his Calvinist evangelical theology, Fred was a good mainstream evangelical.If you believe in Calvinist theology -- Phelps stated that he held to all of the Five P … [Read more...]

Anti-Gay Bigots Unite!

When frightened evangelical and Catholic anti-gay bigots like Franklin Graham and the so called Catholic League get together to try to hang onto their traditional power, here's what they produce in the name of Jesus. I've annotated their latest anti-gay screed with a few admittedly smart ass remarks to expose the hidden truths in their otherwise meaningless far right "document." In a letter more than 200 conservative know-nothing activists -- ranging from the Catholic League’s Bill Donohue to O … [Read more...]
