We’re Taking Over!


It’s true; Pastor Steven L. Anderson of Faithful Word Baptist Church said so. Well, he didn’t put it so nicely. The self-proclaimed pastor (he reportedly has no education in religion because “Bible college is evil”) recently ranted about homosexuals reproducing and growing notably in numbers year after before he corrected himself and said we’re not reproducers, we’re recruiters. Additional claims by Anderson include that the government is run by us, we’re responsible for the $700B bailout bill passed and signed under the Bush administration and that we control 10% of the United Methodist Church. Who knew?

A little fact checking proved the pastor wrong: our actual target is the Lutheran Church. Last week the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America’s General Assembly contemplated and debated several issues relating to LGBT Lutherans, including how to address unions of same-sex couples, allowing gays in committed relationships to serve as ministers and allowing individual congregations to determine how they will address these issues on their own. As the voting drew to a close the skies darkened, a storm raged and a tornado descended from the skies and damaged the convention center and the Central Lutheran Church. Pastor Anderson’s crowd no doubt saw that as a warning and the Lutheran’s apparently took it as a nudge from on high to do the right thing – by a margin of one vote they passed what they call a social statement allowing for ambiguity in the churches official position that would allow individual congregations to choose their own destiny in matters related to LBGT members and ministers. I think we all know who cast the deciding vote.

 

Healthcare Reform is Racist


Bishop Harry Jackson of Washington, D.C.’s Hope Christian Church recently spoke at an event before the National Black Pro-Life Union & Priests for Life, where he first implied that universal health care might have prevented him from receiving the care he needed for his esophageal cancer. He then went on to explain that universal healthcare was “reverse classist” and racist by deftly citing statistics that I suspect he made up. Of course Jackson focused on nothing but abortion and claimed that 41% of pregnancies (which he rounded up to 50%) in D.C. were aborted and that 75% of those that had abortions were black (which makes it racist). Never mind that there is presently no legislation that provides universal healthcare, let alone anything that would allocate government funds to pay for them.

 

What’s important here is that universal healthcare is immoral because of abortion. Jackson went on to say that the immorality of healthcare reform has nothing to do with euthanasia… I guess the Bishop’s message is that God wants every baby to be born, but after that you’re on your own.

 

Michele Bachmann for President?!


Before there was Sarah Palin we had Rep. Michele Bachmann. Bachmann (R-MN) is ready to pursue higher office, but only if God tells her to. I’ve prepared a little biographical information for those of you who may not be familiar with Bachmann and her qualifications. In a 2006 speech at Living Word Christian Center, Bachmann told the world that God wanted her to run for Congress:

“I’m 50 years old. I came to know Him when I was 16. For 34 years, I’ve been hot! And you want to be hot! Because when you are hot for Jesus Christ, there is nothing that is like that life! It is the most exciting life! When you are praying in the spirit, when you are meditating on his word, when you are fellowshipping with white-hot believers, He turns your life around. And it isn’t just for you. It’s for the world! He changes the world through hot people!”

 

Hot is in the eye of the beholder, but it is easy to affirm that her election to office has brought change. From advocating war with radical Islam to encouraging citizens to defy the law and not participate in the 2010 census, Bachmann remains good for a laugh. Last year she riled up the base by channeling Joseph McCarthy and calling for an investigation of members of Congress to “find out if they are pro-America or anti-America”; this year she’s serving as a self-described “foreign correspondent on enemy lines” that wants the people of her state “armed and dangerous” over what she believes are President Obama’s plans to reduce global warming. It hasn’t been all glory for Bachmann, though – while she was distracted by the birther and deather crowds she lost her son to Teach for America, one of the Obama’s re-education camps that she had been warning would reprogram the children with the government’s philosophy. Bachmann is keeping her ear to heaven, waiting for the word on what to do in 2012.

 

Cue the tornado.
