Intercessors for America, a pro-Trump political prayer group closely associated with White House aide Paula White and her One Voice Prayer Movement, has declared that the Supreme Court vacancy created by the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg "belongs to God" and that whoever is nominated must believe only in precedent "that aligns with the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God."

I'm a little surprised they're willing to to toss the nomination to Poison Ivy.

Okay he can fill it than, I don't mean he can put a person on it, I want him to literally have to sit on it.  I guess The Metatron could do in a pinch.

If God descended from heaven and told everyone to Love thy Neighbor, these people would swear allegiance to Satan within 5 minutes.

If God descended from Heaven, all evidence suggests that Republicans would largely get the Sodom and Gomorrah treatment.

I've deliberately avoided reading what the religious nutballs have been saying about RBG's death and Trump's nominee, because I'm just really not into watching self-righteous culture warriors jizzing themselves over and over.

Except this is America, so it is going to be Dead God On A Stick, except they won't show the dead god actually on the stick because that is Papist Idolatry (except they will show their dead god but alive and hugging their favorite country singers which is totally not idolatry for reasons and such as).

"Whoever is nominated to the Supreme Court will understand the Constitution to be the Supreme Law of the Land; not their judicial interpretation of the Constitution."

This is actually an interesting tell: Inerrantist Christians believe that the Bible has a single, unified message on any topic that is "clear" with proper study, and that therefore they, as people, are not "interpreting" scripture, they're just doing what it says. (They love meaningless platitudes like "let scripture interpret scripture" or "use more clear passages to interpret less clear", while denying that they're taking an active role in deriving specific meanings from the text.)

Apparently they're extending this hermeneutic to the Constitution as well. I don't know if I'd say this is "dumber" than their fear of interpretation as it pertains to the Bible, but it's still really frikkin' dumb.

Let's just strip this bare, shall we? This farker as president and this court seat is all to appease the pseudo religious desire to ban abortions. They claim this is because God requires that no life (apparently not even the twinkle in an eye) be taken. This is a lie since they don't care about immigrants' lives, poor lives, black lives. So I assert this is and has always been about control over women's bodies and (realistically) their options. There is research showing that access to birth control and access to abortion have enabled women to have greater economic and professional freedom. So what are the two things that the religious right try to control? Access to birth control and abortion.

So these asswipes are willing to embrace satan himself to ensure women get put back in their place.

Its from the root word, "intercede", or to intervene on someone else's behalf. Intercession is the act of interceding, and an Intercessor is one who intercedes. However, in this case the Evangelicals have appropriated the term Intercessor to mean "one who prays on behalf of another", otherwise referred to as performing an "intercessory prayer".

Been saying this for years and had no idea this quote existed.

The "I prayed to god for guidance" canard has the added bonus of putting you in the position of trying to dispute what someone says with "but....but...god" and then be ignored.

So they are basically acting like self-appointed saints, one of the things that Martin Luther, the Calvinists, and the Lollards all opposed?

Metatron's just a voicebox for when the Deity wants to speak to humanity without exploding their minds.

// I suppose we could let Big G speak for themselves if we wanted to replace the other 8 Justices all at once
// might be better to just classify Metatron as an assistive device

well then, they're clearly in the tank for Amy Coney Barrett:

barret is catholic, but not a "normal" one. just as pence and mother are "evangelical catholics" she is a "charismatic catholic".

what the hell does that mean? it means she's a sworn life-long member of "people of praise" a "parachurch" group that embraces things like speaking in tongues. this is NOT standard catholic practice or doctrine, the most famous charismatic church in america is probably the pentecostals AKA "holy rollers" and "snake handlers".

barret may be a brilliant woman and an honest legal scholar and practitioner, but make no mistake she herself said:

"I'm just going to identify one way in which I hope that you, as graduates of Notre Dame, will fulfill the promise of being a different kind of lawyer. And that is this: that you will always keep in mind that your legal career is but a means to an end, and as Father Jenkins told you this morning, that end is building the kingdom of God."

Associate Professor Amy Coney Barrett, Diploma Ceremony Address

this woman believes with her whole heart she is on a mission from god. do you think for one second she will let "legal precedent" have more impact on her decisions than reshaping america to be more "godly"?

she's respected. she's smart, she's female, she's conventionally attractive, she's only 48 years old, and she is DANGEROUS to every single american who wishes NOT to live under a theocracy.

she's also a trumper on immigration issues, but she probably chalks that up to "jesus" as well.

As I noted in the other thread, people try really hard to argue that her wackadoo cult isn't really a cult because the leader doesn't think he's Jesus and isn't trying to fark all the members. The thing is, you have to actually look at all-consuming behavior and practices, not just whether or not they have novel theology, and boy do they have the weird practices in spades.
