    What Karl Rove and RED staters would say of Jesus today...

    I just can't help but think about how WRONG those fundies are about religion, every time I see the Pieta... And think about the laws they would pass to forbid public funds to be spent in  "indecent" works of art and "indecent" gay/bi artists like Da Vinci, Michelangelo and others...

    A black and white boring  New "W" world order. Sigh...

    •  What would Rove do? (4.00)
      Rove always attacks the strength, not the weakness, of the opponent.

      What is the strength of our opponent? Their twisted Christianity, perverted into a political movement.

      We must focus on attacking it, shaming it, calling it what it really is and not what the greedy-for-power-and-money frauds who run its "ministries" try to pass it off as: in any legitimate way the lineage of Jesus' ministry.

      We should mock and shame these people, who have surrendered the free will God gave them to make of themselves slaves to evil - evil which is as real as the claims that Kerry's courage was cowardace were not. Only this way will Rove be unseated, rather than four years from now at the left hand of Jeb.

      Everything that they have used to make Democrats shy from admitting the name "liberal," should we lay on those who might think there's any pride in being "fundamentalist." We must undermine them both with science and with scholarship in the very scriptures they quite obviously have never gained the intellectual or emotional skill to read the meaning of.

      We must pray that they awaken. And if they don't, we must not look back as they fall behind us, having rendered themselves unfit for either science or citizenry, unready to go on to the next stage of civilization which will leave them behind, as civilization always does, as the savages, the heathen who had not vision enough to see the better roads ahead. Just as the war gods of the Greeks and Romans were left behind, so will the Jehovah these fools make false idol of.

      And the living God will rejoyce.

        Daily Kos :: Branding the GOP As The Party Of Confederate Reactionairies

        Over the past 25 years, the GOP has had tremendous success branding the Democratic party as the party of the godless Northeastern liberal elite. Nevermind that this image has no basis in reality -- of the 57 million people who voted for John Kerry included more than a few middle class people, the type who go to their white-steepled churches on Sundays, teach their children "moral values" like peace, generousity, tolerance and honesty, and generally work hard and play by the rules. Can we turn the tables? I think we can, by branding the GOP as the party of reckless, Confederate firebrands.

        The amunition is there.  The GOP base right now consists of many reckless Confederate firebrands who, if they could, would take America back to a time of segregation (see Trapper John's current post about the Alabama Segregation vote), revive and teach creationism, criminalize gays and lesbians, shut down the federal government, start reckless wars, abolish public education, pave the Grand Canyon, and drill for oil on the Gettysburg Battlefield....

        that Tim LaHaye blasphemy is not only badly written, but just dead out wrong.

      •  /We should mock and shame these people. . ./ (none)
        Prairie Logic's comments (upthread) gave me an idea for a great bumper sticker (aka "drive-by preaching"):

        Conservative Christian
        is an oxymoron

          ... I've been mulling over what "signature line" I should add... you answered my question.

          "Conservative Christian" is an Oxymoron

          •  Partly True (none)
            From my vantage point, Conservative Christianity seems to be split into a few groups, only some of which reject Jesus's teachings. Just as one example, many Methodists and Reformed are quite conservative, but they don't practice the politics of hate and condescension that most of us here are so unhappy with.

            My question for a conservative Christian would be "Would your congregation call Jesus to be your pastor?" Would they put up with His railing against selfishness and self-righteousness? Would they accept His condemnation of their behaviors? Would they tolerate His acceptance of those who are outcasts of society, such as Blacks, immigrants, gays, and the poor. Would they be willing to pay more taxes to help all of their neighbors, not just donate more to their church to make their church look good in the community.

            "Conservative" in a religious context means too many things to make your sig fair.

            A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds, adored by little statesmen and philosophers and divines. - Emerson
