Two things you need to hold political office: piety & a penis

Two things you need to hold political office: piety & a penis January 26, 2016

Gary Cass, above, of the Christian Anti-Defamation Commission, last week released a new video aimed at helping his fellow conservative Christians to understand ‘the biblical qualifications for political office’.
First, such contenders must be Christians, and second, they must be men.

What a candidate professes about God is absolutely critical, it will profoundly shape his leadership. Genuine reverence for the Lord is the foundation of knowledge … so we need a leader who is alive spiritually and who will lead in the fear of God.

Dismissing the idea that a woman can hold political office, the plonker said:

The biblical biological requirement for office is you must be male. Civil leadership should be conceived of as an extension of the family and God’s created order.
God established man as the head of the woman and the woman as his helpmate … In society, the same roles apply as is ordained in the family and in the church.

He added:

The ministry of justice that God has given to the state is generally a man’s job.
Yet, there are exceptions in the Bible where God has raised up women like Deborah to judge and even deliver Israel. But it’s considered an indictment when there’s no strong, godly men to lead and protect their families and society.

And while on the subject of nuts, I see that evangelist Franklin Graham is concerned that the “wrong” sort of people are infiltrating churches.

We have to be so careful who we let into the churches. You have immoral people that get into the churches and it begins to affect the others in the church and it is dangerous.

Who are these dangerous infiltrators?
No prizes for guessing homos.

I was talking to some Christians and they were talking about how they invited these gay children to come into their home and to come into the church and that they were wanting to influence them.
And I thought to myself, they’re not going to influence those kids, those kids are going to influence those parents’ children.
What happens is we think we can fight by smiling and being real nice and loving… we have to understand who the enemy is and what he wants.
He wants to devour our homes. He wants to devour this nation.

    Cass is full of bullshit, and, guess what, homosexuality is his pet hate (closely followed by abortion):
    The comments seem universally hostile, thank …

    If you were wondering whence came his impressive academic qualifications, look no further than Westminster Theological Seminary (oh, no!). He has some seriously deranged views, including the need to exterminate Muslims:
    First trust in God, then obtain a gun(s), learn to shoot, teach your kids the Christian doctrines of just war and self defense, create small cells of family and friends that you can rely on if some thing catastrophic happens and civil society suddenly melts down.
    ISSI has done us all a favor. The true face of Islam is on full display even as Mohammed is burning in hell. We will have to face the harsh truth that Islam has no place in civilized society. Muslims cannot live in a society based on Christian ideals of equality and liberty. They will always seek to harm us.
    Now the only question is how many more dead bodies will have to pile up at home and abroad before we crush the vicious seed of Ishmael in Jesus name? The Good News is Jesus, and his indestructible Church, will prevail, but there will be pain and heartache along the way to victory. May we be willing to take the lesser pains now so our children won’t have to take greater pains later.
    What a charming man!

    WTF is it with these fundy christian wankers and their Hitler mustaches? There I godwinned it for ya.

  • These men are knowledgable about their religion and are citing their holy book accurately.
    Which says something unflattering about their religion and their holy book, I’d say.
