James Dobson and Co. throw fit at evangelicals who are talking about global warming; evangelicals don't budge and decide to oppose torture too

Highlights:

"We have observed that Cizik and others are using the global warming controversy to shift the emphasis away from the great moral issues of our time, notably the sanctity of human life, the integrity of marriage and the teaching of sexual abstinence and morality to our children," said the letter, which was signed by prominent religious conservatives such as James Dobson, Don Wildmon, Paul Weyrich and Gary Bauer.

Yeah, because Jesus spent so much time talking about hating on gays and people who have sex -- wait a second! Somebody's replaced my Gospels with Folger's crystals! This says Jesus' greatest ire was reserved for the Pharisees, those who espoused the letter of the law while oppressing the poor and anyone else they didn't like. Why do these people sound vaguely familiar?

"We're not going to allow third parties to divide evangelicals, and I think that is what is happening in part with the global warming issue," Perkins said.

Who are these third parties? ....Oh right, they must be third parties, because Real Christians aren't supposed to be thinking for themselves. Just shut up and do what Daddy Dobson tells you to. And you women, get in the kitchen and make him some pie.

However, the association board not only stood behind Cizik, but also further broadened the group's agenda with a statement condemning torture, which charged that in pursuing the war on terror, the United States had crossed "boundaries of what is legally and morally permissible."

Oh horrors!! What would Jesus say to all this opposing torture nonsense? Maybe... "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you"?

But one of the board members, the Rev. Paul de Vries, said, "It ought to be God's agenda, not the Republican Party's agenda, that drives us.

"We're actually tired of being represented by people with a very narrow focus," he said. "We want to have a focus as big as God's focus."

And to that, I say amen.

No No No Jesus was misunderstood by you stinkin' liberal commie pinkos!!! That portion of the Bible was badly translated. He's not talking about Pharisees. Look, this is teh one, True translation:

"And, lo, Jesus said unto them, 'Amen, I say to you, woe unto you, scribes and fairies... see??' And the disciples did look and see the bow-chikka-bow-wow of that which must only be done between a man and a woman in a marriage recognized by Caesar, not by Unions that be Civil, and not between a man and a man, though the actions of a woman with a woman are not as evil in the sight of the Lord our God. Actually kind of hot."

This morning, I was driving through Pulaski (and BTW, could they possibly make the highway that runs through Elkton and Ardmore any narrower? Because I think I actually saw a truck that wasn't riding the shoulder. Horrors!) and some Christian station was actually discussing this: "If they are able to eventually tell if an unborn baby has a homosexuality gene, would it be alright to abort them?" If I could've, I would've thrown things at the radio.

but you know.... think about it; that's a pretty good paradox for them... I mean how do the "pro-life/anti-gay" contingent answer that question?

I swear, it's good that I don't have god-like powers. I would be striking these people dead without a second thought.
