In my last post about religion, my soapbox and I described some of what we’ve seen in the news that’s making us wonder how religion has gotten so screwed up.
Yes, I know people have said that about religion(s) for the last 2,000 years but, today, it’s blatantly obvious that some people are in dire need of religious history lessons as well as a good slap up side the head.
The sad part is, I need to add to the previous post on religion because these so-called preachers keep irritating the hell out of me…….and my soapbox.
We, now, have two more “pastors” preaching murder from their pulpits.
Yes, I said murder. There is nothing else to call it when you advocate, to your congregation, that they go out and kill the President, kill gays, kill Muslims, kill non-Christians…..etc..
One Arizona pastor is screaming from the pulpit to kill all the homosexuals and, if we do, AIDS will be gone by Christmas. That, by definition, is preaching murder. It’s also a patented lie. It’s not only homosexuals who have AIDS. AIDS will not disappear any time soon thanks to transfusions, used needles and the like.
This devil in preachers clothing says that all “homo’s”, as he terms gays, are pedophiles. Statistics, and reality, prove him extremely wrong on that one. Doctors and the FBI categorize pedophiles as 90% white males who have trouble with adult relationships but who may be married to a woman but in a non-sexual relationship. Men who do not live in the “real world” and justify their actions as “love”. Nowhere in any paper/report I’ve read does it say “homosexuals”.
Pastor Steven Anderson of the Faithful World Baptist Church in Tempe, AZ, is the one of the ones spewing this hate. He’s using his pulpit to spread nothing more than evil and discord among his congregation.
We, also, have the Baptist preacher who wrote to a gay writer and told him he was praying for him to commit suicide. He, too, is advocating killing….albeit by suicide. No matter what, it’s still advocating the murder of those who are “different”. A modern Salem Witch Trial, if you will, without the trials.
Yeah, they’re preaching the word of God….the god of the underworld maybe.
And these are men of God. These are men who preach the word of Jesus Christ. NOT. EVEN. CLOSE.
If you’ve actually read the New Testament, there is absolutely NOTHING in it about hating your neighbor or killing people that are unlike you. There is, also, nothing about gays, even though the rabid twist certain verses, but a LOT about murder and the consequences of that act.
This is no longer about religion. This is about men….. sick men who deeply hate and fear what is different. Men who are preaching sin and evil to the people who trust and look up to them. Men who have a tiny bit of control and are trying to get more. Men who never should have become preachers in the first place. Men who teach hatred, bigotry, intolerance, violence, and how to be evil to impressionable children and adults who believe these morons are actually speaking the word of God……which they AREN’T.
Yes, I said EVIL several times in this post. What else can it be called when these so-called men of God preach about killing others? Jesus advocated turning the other cheek, loving your fellow man no matter who or what he was. What does the Bible tell us the devil advocates??? All the things these preachers are doing….hating, telling people to kill, hating those who are different……
Killing is wrong according to God and man. So why are these sick haters preaching about killing the President, Muslims and gays? We can go the false prophet route or we can say they are deranged or that they are bigots, or even closet homosexuals trying to hide in their rhetoric. Whatever it may be, these people need to stop and their congregations need to quit listening and oust them immediately. No one needs to hear this kind of hate, or any kind of hate for that matter.
All I know is, psychiatrists would have a field day with these so-called me of God.
*Just a note…..today (12/11/14) a young North Carolina “Christian” man was arrested for kidnapping and beating a gay man.
These are just 3 of the 20 articles I’ve read about pastors telling their congregations to kill…..take them for what they’re worth and think about it. Hard.
