  •  The only religion these fundamentalist ... (4+ / 0-)

    have any intention of allowing to exercise the "freedom" that is being proposed in these hateful laws is Christianity. Because of that, these attempts will never pass the constitutional smell test.

    If life weren't so damn hard, we’d have no need for fabric softeners.

    •  This bigotry is not Christ-like - not Christianity (2+ / 0-)

      I don't know where those 'fundamentalists' get their religion, but it isn't from the God I worship.  Jesus said we are to love others as He loved us, and He didn't love one person more than the next because that person was or was not gay.  In fact, it says in the Bible that John was the apostle that Jesus loved - doesn't that imply that Jesus Himself was gay?  

      •  Well, ostensibly from (0+ / 0-)

        here. "charity" and "kindness" are not words present in that article, which lists the table of contents along with a brief summary.

        How influential that collection of works has actually been is unclear to me.

        No true Scotsman, eh?

      •  Bigotry is not Christianity (0+ / 0-)

        I agree with your comment totally.  This other type of so-called Christianity looks to me like an ugly warped thing--coming not at all from "above" but from that other place.

      •  Old Testament comes first (0+ / 0-)

        Jesus is just an accessory.  These people see themselves as a race whose "covenant" with God supersedes the Hebrew covenant, and their ideology always veers towards the primary ugliness of the Old Testament: Patriarchy, conquest and oppression of other tribes, obsession with property rights, contempt of nature and the feminine, and the tyranny of family structure as a baby-making machine for churning out the next wave of warriors.
