The evangelicals should review the 613 commandments in Leviticus beyond the couple that like before getting all on board. They may want to review the section in the updated version that says this is the new covenant in my blood.

Bet they focus on punishing the women folk for showing too much ankle

Yes its  the same thing,

I love it when these supposed Christians use "Allah Akbar" as some kind of insult since it allows me to ask them why they do not think God is Great.

Other elements of its agenda include easing sentencing laws and limits on parole releases, as well as the use of faith-based prison programs and other infrastructure to help inmates prepare for life after release.

There it is. No thanks.

You shall not covet your neighbor's wife, or his male or female servant, his ox or donkey, or anything that belongs to your neighbor.

How about f*ck no? You guys wanted this; you've f*cked things up badly enough. Sounds like a typical Christian bandwagoning trying to slime their way on to popular movements, like Christian yoga, or Christian rock. They can only make things worse.

Given the evangelicals' Calvinist bent, I expected it to be more of their psychotic fixation on harsh punishment.

Is Dante's Inferno based on Christian ideology?

Because if so, they might want to check out who is in the second round of the ninth circle of Hell.

It's traitors against country.

I think Evangelicals think Trump really is the anti-Christ and they've embraced him because that means the second coming is nigh

This cuts both ways subby. All I have to do is repent and say I found Jesus and the whole 'double homicide' is forgiven.

Death penalty for abortions, jail time for gay people, and tooooons of exemptions for sincetely-held religious beliefs

No thanks. While we do need criminal justice reform the Bible should NEVER be used as a source of reference for said reform.

We've been re-watching "The West Wing."  Last episode was the one where President Bartlett grills the evangelical radio host over how much he should sell his daughter for, and whether he has to stone someone who wears cloth woven from two different threads, or if he can have an aide do it.

I wish life was like the West Wing.

To be fair, cooking a baby goat in its mother's milk is pretty f*cked up.

I expect evangelicals to promptly present themselves to be buried neck-deep and stoned to death. I mean, they're literally asking for this.

Cool, they're finally on board with legalized abortion! And, I guess, they're forming a mob to lynch the President - who is an admitted adulterer (punishment is death, if he slept with a married woman - if she wasn't married, he has to marry her and can't mistreat or divorce her). And most of corporate America (the verse about withholding someone's pay, Deut 24:15, does not put them on God's Good Side) spends some time in the barrel. Oh, and we're shuttering most of the banks for usury. Plus, social spending now has to be WAAAAAAY higher, as rich people start giving up shirts off their backs like Halloween candy.

// should I continue?

Y'all really think this through, because you DO remember what the sentence was for adultery, right?
 
2020-08-19 1:47:08 PM  
I'm on board for banning usury, but somehow I doubt that one will be on their list.

Don't forget, those slippery evangelicals will tell you that the Old Testament doesn't count, so no fair bringing up stonings and such. Be ready to point out, for example, all the pro-slavery arguments from the New Testament. Don't get me wrong, the better trained ones will have a facile counter ready for that, too. But if you keep pointing out problem after problem with their sacred text, eventually they'll get tired of arguing and just leave you alone.

Don't forget to offer to pray for their soul on their way out the door.

COGIC is black-dominated.  If you're gonna use your blackness to push Jesus on people, extra screw you.  Queer black people exist and you need to answer for what you've done to them first.

One of these women is a brave patriot standing up the rights of her people and her faith, one is a bloody minded terrorist that wants to do nothing more than slaughter innocents in the name of a false God

Can't remember which side is which though.

If I have a goat that produces so much milk that I can cook another goat in it, I'm breeding that thing. So breathe easy, young goat.

That means you probably washed the meat with a polyester-cotton blend cloth. You shall suffer eternal damnation for that one, buddy.

Well, to be honest, a lot of them are locked up for stealing, or kiddie-diddling.

What about Christian "love"?
 
2020-08-19 1:54:01 PM  
So are these "Christians" promoting criminal justice based on the teachings of Jesus, and focused on care, compassion, rehabilitation and loving others as you love thyself? Or are the going to focus on the old testament, a compact with god which Jesus said to ignore, which is going to be focused on vengeance, punishment, and stoning people to death for not believing the way you do?

Because I can see the latter happening under American "christianity", but never the former. Why would American "christians" listen to the mad ravings of a socialist with the wrong skin color?
