I’m pissed off because Evangelicals hate gay people.
Ma says it’s just a fact a reality a farce or force of forceps of human nature that I have to accept. Deal with it , kid, she says. Amanda B. says I shouldn’t accept anything even if it comes out of my ma’s mouth. My BFF Squinny says she wants chocolate chip cookies and a snow cone. I’m pissed and tired of cone heads like Evangelical ‘Christians’ and ‘Conservative’ Republicans who jump around in the cloak of ‘saving’ the kids to justify murder, bigotry and hate. If there were a litmus test for Evangelical ‘Christians’,I’m certain many of the haters would fail the test.
According to the New York Times, this year’s Conservative Political Action Conference, which is partly sponsored by the gay Republican group GOPround, will be boycotted by other conservative organizations like the Family Research Council, Concerned Women for America , Liberty University (Note the irony: Liberty? University) and the Heritage Foundation. They refuse to participate because gay people will co-sponsor the event.
These groups are tied to the same movement, or menace, that murdered Ugandan gay rights activist David Kato. His face, name and home address were published in the Ugandan newspaper Rolling Stone shortly after Evangelical ‘Christians’ from America attended a conference in Uganda to discuss criminalizing homosexuality. According to the New York Times, those Evangelical ‘Christians’ included “Scott Lively, a missionary who has written several books against homosexuality, including “7 Steps to Recruit-Proof Your Child”; Caleb Lee Brundidge, a self-described former gay man who leads “healing seminars”; and Don Schmierer, a board member of Exodus International, whose mission is “mobilizing the body of Christ to minister grace and truth to a world impacted by homosexuality” — are now trying to distance themselves from the bill…. including the Rev. Rick Warren, who visited in 2008 and has compared homosexuality to pedophilia.”
Question: What would Jesus do?
Answer: 1. Approve of the “killing” of gays. 2. Facebook all day. 3. Hang out at gay bars and dance his ass off. 4. Sacrifice his life for every last goddamned homosexual or lesbian on the planet.
Ma says I shouldn’t blame Evangelical ‘Christians’ because they’ll call me anti-Christian or anti-Christ or Auntie Mame, and they’ll blacklist me from future employment. Hell, ma says, they’ll blacklist your ass off the streets. I tell ma I know not all Christians are bad.In fact, I believe most of them are good, even God-like, and fabulous. I’m just tired of the few who scream and shout over the heads of reason. The reasonable people just don’t speak up loud enough, often enough, or soon enough–that is my opinion. To truly live in the grace of God and the Holy Spirit or Sprite or whatever it is Jesus Christ was here to guide us into, everyone one of us–evangelical or not–should speak up and end the silence. And end the violence perpetrated by the real anti-Christs.
