Why Isn’t Anybody As Worried As Cary Godon That America Will Be Destroyed By Gay Marriage?

Know what I really don’t need today? To see America destroyed. It would be so freakin’ annoying! I have so much to do today — can you believe my sister thinks I can watch her kid for a few hours because I work from home? — and America getting destroyed would really put a hamper on things. Just imagine the traffic. How am I supposed to get to the post office with everyone fleeing to Canada? But alas, destroying America is what Roy Moore, of something called The Foundation for Moral Law, argued this week at an Iowa rally hosted by Bob Vander Plaats’s Family Leader. All because the gays are getting married, there’s going to be a “moral meltdown.” Um, I think I’m a little bit more concerned about a nuclear meltdown, but whatever. And then there’s Cary Gordon of Cornerstone World Outreach, seen here, who points to “our current literacy rate,” our safety on the streets, our declining number of church goers, and our prison population as examples of how gay acceptance are bringing down this nation. No, sir. What is bringing down the nation are $5 ATM fees.

      Its clear this cherry-picking right wing religious bigot and hypocrite doesn’t know the old testament. Its also quite clear that the book of fairytales he believes in also supports polygamy.

      In Deuteronomy 21:15-17 it clearly shows implied approval of polygamy (a straight invention), as it is a law governing the inheritance of the children of polygamy.

      In Numbers 12:1-15 it also shows implied approval, as Moses took an Ethiopian women as his wife, but no one complained that he already had a wife; they complained that she was not an Israelite. Apparently, God punished the complainers, but showed no dissatisfaction with Moses for marrying a second wife. It doesn’t seem to have bothered him at all. He appears to have approved of Moses’ decision.

      In the seconde book of Samuel, chapters 11 and 12, the Lord gets mad at David for stealing another man’s wife, when the Lord had already given him many wives. Obviously the Lord condoned polygamy, if he gave David his wives.

      Our bias against polygamy is just a cultural thing – it has nothing to do with religion. The Romans depised polygamy, and the Roman church therefore discouraged it. The Jews themselves didn’t stop the practice until 1100 AD.

      By the way, I’m an atheist but arm myself with a basic knowledge of the bible, both old and new testaments to throw this back at these bigoted, hypocritical bible thumping scum.

      Alas, fear of nuclear meltdown shows the same lack of information that the Right uses about gay marriage. Nothing going on today makes me fear either one.

      Thankfully Canadians have beaten religion out of our legislature and our politicians. The need for even liberal American politicians to appear christian is distasteful and shocking at once.
