    The Son of God would only use the best.

  4. Elaine M. says:

    No, bron, the Son of God would turn the other cheek.

  5. bron98 says:


    And you know that how? Because the bible says so? How do you know what the bible says? As far as I can tell, the bible says whatever someone wants it to say.

    But in any event, I was just agreeing with pete and not making any political statement.

    I had twelve years of religious education under the Sisters of Notre Dame. I still have some of the answers from the Baltimore Catechism etched into my memory after more than a half century. I had enough religion in my first twenty years to last a lifetime. I’m just cruising religion-wise these days.

    http://www.rightwingwatch.org/content/if-god-judging-texas-its-because-witchcraft-and-sodomy “On his radio program today, Bryan Fischer took a call from “Rebecca in College Station, Texas” who shared her theory that the massive flooding taking place in Texas is God’s punishment for “witchcraft and sodomy.”

    As Rebecca explained, the only parts of Texas that are underwater are the parts “that are overrun with witchcraft and sodomy” like Austin and Houston, which has a “sodomite mayor.”

    On the other hand, the area where Rebecca lives is not underwater, even though she lives in a valley, and that is because “we kicked out abortion” and the people who live there hold conservative views.

    “If God is judging Texas, it’s because of the witchcraft and sodomy that we’ve allowed to run rampant,” Rebecca said, and Fischer responded by agreeing that that was a very plausible explanation.

    “If you’re going to attribute the flooding in Texas to some kind of supernatural cause, you can make a geographical connection between the flooding and the practice of the occult and witchcraft and the embrace of homosexuality,” he said. “That’s where the disaster is being felt the worse.”

    Fischer then explained that the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah was also a very localized natural disaster that “just wiped out those two cities where homosexuality had been embraced [so] if you’re going to make a case that there is some supernatural origin to this natural disaster, that would probably be the place to look”;
    – See more at: http://www.rightwingwatch.org/content/if-god-judging-texas-its-because-witchcraft-and-sodomy#sthash.DthplKHk.dpuf Have been waiting for one of the Texas preachers to attribute the floods to gay people and abortion.

    A few Christmases ago we were driving around looking at Christmas lights and outdoor decorations. One house had a huge inflatable snowman in the front yard. The snowman was festooned in hunting gear and carried a large rifle and a sign reading Merry Christmas. It was quite appalling in that this was a massed produced item meaning there was a large enough market out there to bring profits from such holiday ornamentation. I felt rather sorry for the neighbors who had to look at that monstrosity every night. The only thing missing was a pile of beer cans.

    “The only thing missing was a pile of beer cans.” — blouise,

    At least they were recycling?

    Ah, yes, the Baltimore Catechism. I remember it so well. In elementary parochial school, a couple of us added naughty captions to the illustrations. This was fun until a classmate grabbed my catechism and brought it to the Benedictine nun teacher. Then it went to the Benedictine nun principal and the parish priest. My mother was summoned to the principal’s office.
    I regard this incident as the advent of my disrespect toward religion, and my downward slide into perdition. Thank god!
