God of Love, Prophets of Hate

Barack Obama as Antichrist Superstar

Barack Obama as Antichrist Superstar

I don’t preach to people about my religious beliefs and try very hard to avoid being preached at by others.   My belief system is mine and since I don’t choose to share it with others, why would I want you to share yours with me?

Not that’s there’s anything bad about religion.  At least the religions that truly bring God’s word to those that seek it, comfort the afflicted and engage in good works and charity instead of building massive temples to the vanity of men.

Then there’s that special breed of idiot that use the Bible as a blunt object in which to bludgeon their particular targets of personal hatred.

There’s the well-known borderline psychos like the repellent Fred Phelps who goes around boycotting funerals of dead soldiers returning from Iraq and Afghanistan.   Then there’s the lesser-known wannabee hate mongers with a hankering for some of the spotlight.    For them,  Barack Obama is the Antichrist and they’re personally going to send him to hell.

Like the Pastor Steven L. Anderson who explains to his flock, “Why I Hate Barack Obama.”

If this is a champion of God, Satan has got nothing to worry about.

If this is a champion of God, Satan has got nothing to worry about.

“God Hates Barack Obama, I hate Barack Obama. I hate Him. God wants me to Hate Barack Obama.” “Someone who commits murder should get the death penalty.”

Anderson is welcome to his opinion.  It’s unfortunate that he chooses to use the pulpit to spread his hatred to the members of his church, but when you read in the church’s doctrinal statement“We believe that homosexuality is a sin and an abomination which God punishes with the death penalty,”   you get a sense of the flavor of Kool-Aid Anderson is serving up.

I listened to Anderson’s rant so you don’t have to.   It was a worthy of George Orwell’s  1984 and the Hate Minute only this was the extended remix version.   If you’ve got a strong stomach and tolerance for unhinged rage, knock yourself out.

But it’s  homosexuals that really give Anderson a boner.

You know why God wanted the sodomites in the Old Testament to be killed? You know why every good king of Israel, the Bible says they got rid of the sodomites in the land? You know, the good kings that came after the bad kings who had allowed the sodomites to infest their land, they had infiltrated … King Asa got the sodomites out of the land, Jehoshaphat exterminated the sodomites that were left from the days of his father, Asa. Why? Because the sodomites are infectious, that’s why. Because they’re not reproducers, that goes without saying, they’re recruiters.

How are they multiplying? Do you not see that they’re multiplying? Are you that blind? Have you noticed that there’s more than there were last year and the year before, and the year before that? How are they multiplying? They’re reproducing right? No, here’s a biology lesson: they’re not reproducers, they’re recruiters! And you know who they’re after? Your children. Remember you dropped off your kids last week? That’s who they’re after. You drop them off as some daycare, you drop them off as some school somewhere, you don’t know where they’re at. I’ll tell you where they’re at: they’re being recruited by the sodomites. They’re being molested by the sodomites. I can tell you so many stories about people that I know being molested and recruited by the sodomites.

They recruit through rape. They recruit through molestation. They recruit through violation. They are infecting our society. They are spreading their disease. It’s not a physical disease, it’s a sin disease , it’s a wicked, filthy sin disease and it’s spreading on a rampage. Can’t you see that it’s spreading on a rampage? I mean, can you not see that? Can you not see that it’s just exploding in growth? Why? Because each sodomite recruits far more than one other sodomite because his whole life is about recruiting other sodomites, his whole life is about violating and hurting people and molesting ’em.

So how many sodomites is one sodomite going to produce? A lot, and that’s why it’s just exploding. The only way to stop it, you say “how do we stop it?” … You want to know why sodomites are recruiting? Because they have no natural predators.

You know the way Adolf Hitler was fanatically obsessed with the eradication of the Jews?   Anderson possesses the kind of hatred of homosexuals where he wouldn’t necessarily send them off to the camps to be liquidated, but he’d wave “bye-bye” to them as the train pulls out.

Then there’s Reverend James David Manning.   He calls President Obama, a “long-legged Mack Daddy.”    When he’s not raving about “two great big old tits” Manning denies he’s trashing the president.   “I haven’t trashed Obama. His African-in-heat father went a whoring after a trashy white woman. He was born trash.”

Speaking of trash, Manning whom has jumped aboard “the birther” crazy train, spent three and a half years in New York and Florida prisons for burglary, robbery, larceny, and criminal possession of a weapon among other charges.  He said on Fox News, he’s a critic of Obama, Oprah Winfrey, Jay-Z, Cornel West and other prominent Blacks because it’s necessary to examine their “character.”

Consider.  The. Source.

I’m aware enough to know these two assholes are just talkin’ loud and sayin’ nothing.    They have as much business preaching as i do trying to dunk on Shaquille O’Neal.   But any fool can get a video on YouTube and many do.  It’s not just easier to be crazy, you can reach an audience while being crazy.

In every profession there are those who commit acts of malpractice.   Doctors whom have no business wielding a scalpel.   Attorneys who should have their licenses snatched.   Journalists who are hopelessly compromised.

Rev. Manning: Pimpin in the name of the Lawd.

Rev. Manning: Pimpin' in the name of the Lawd.

And on any given Sunday there are  preachers whom stand in the pulpit and vent not the Word, but their own prejudices, hatreds and petty political agendas.    Churches can be found in spaces that take up the size of several football fields or a large closet and  for anyone that feels called to preach there is someone available to bear witness.

Sometimes it’s to bear false witness.   God doesn’t hate Barack Obama.   He doesn’t even hate Anderson and Manning for perverting God’s word.

God doesn’t hate.  False prophets do.
