(Some Guy)   Why is it that so-called 'values voters' care more about gay marriage and evolution than protecting the weak and helping the poor?   (churchandstate.org.uk) divider line 28

Because Jesus said all kinds of things about hating gay people and evolution, and nothing about the weak and the poor.

NeverDrunk23: coeyagi: Being gay and believing in Science makes you morally poor (or something), so they're just attacking the root cause.

Gay science?


Plastic tubes and pots and pans
Bits and pieces and the
Magic from the hand
We're makin' gay science
Things I've never seen before
Behind bolted doors
Talent and imagination
Gay science
Not what teacher said to do
Makin' dreams come true
Living tissue, warm flesh
Gay science

Via Infinito: As far as not helping the weak and poor, many of them believe in the prosperity doctrine. If you're poor, God wants it that way because you suck. If I have money, it's because God wants me to have it and I'm not about to give it to your unemployed welfare-abusing ass.


Jesus said "the poor will always be with you."

Think about what that means.

First of all, there will always be good-for-nothing moochers stealing from productive citizens.  Jesus knew this nearly 2000 years before Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security.

Second, humans will never be able to eliminate poverty, because Jesus said so.  To try to eliminate poverty is not just futile, it is an act of human pride and defiance against God.  Poverty is a symptom of the deadly sin of sloth.  Welfare is also a sin, the result of the deadly sin of sloth, which causeth poverty, and envy, which causeth the poor to covet what their betters have earned.  Giving money to the poor only encourages them to mooch more.  To eliminate poverty, you need to eliminate the sin that causes poverty, and only Jesus can do that.

In Heaven, there is no Medicare, no Medicaid, no Social Security, no welfare, no food stamps, no Section 8 Housing, and no public transportation.  There is no affirmative action (unneeded, because there are no minorities in Heaven), no unions, and no unemployment insurance.  There are no job-killing OSHA, EPA, FDA, or Department of Labor to burden the job creators.  God only asks for a flat tax of 10 percent, as opposed to the 50% tax rate demanded by 0bama.  Why does 0bama need five times what God asks for?  Because he thinks he's five times better than God?

Serious Black: According to the values of the Prosperity Gospel, people get what they deserve. The poor are wretched sinners who have turned their backs from God, so God is righteously smiting them with famine and powerlessness.


I wish there was as kernel of truth in that so the Kardashians could be properly dealt with.

My former mother-in-law was a vicious, selfish, thieving drunk, but she went to church every morning and sang her lungs out. Apparently she believed that going to church wiped her slate clean each day, so she could continue to be an awful person. And I'm certain she's not the only one.

Shortly after her daughter and I split, she was struck blind. I was sorely tempted to call her and ask if it was a message from God.

Because overpopulating (anti birth control, anti abortion) and salting the earth (fracking, anti envrionmental policies) with superstitious (anti evolution, prayer in public schools) stupid (anti science, anti funding of education) consumers (pro big business) is their ultimate goal.

"Prosperity Gospel" is about the most evil, malicious thing ever imagined. At its root, it says that starving babies and others incapable of caring for themselves are sinners unworthy of life. And it presents this as an expression of "God's love". Is there any greater perversion out there?

/also, that stupefying "The Secret" is just as bad. It is the same thing wrapped in a "no-Jesus" cloak.


Letting babies die young means God gets them that much sooner. God gets aborted fetuses before they're even born! They should be supportive of abortion.
