ATTEMPTING TO MORE ¨EFFECTIVELY¨ DEMONIZE/PERSECUTE LGBTI CHRISTIANS: “God’s plan for sexuality,” and other tripe meant to soothe the brainwashed...

Self-righteous blamers/shamers, common greedsters, hate-mongers and thieves love to promote a God they think they know well enough to speak for!
TODAY Truth Wins Out´s contributor Evan Hurst took the words right out of my brain/mouth--so I added some! 

A Friday Morning Rant
By Leonardo Ricardo

Dangerous/biggoted self-righteous religious ¨abusers¨  who arrogantly think they know my heart/my soul and yours too.
For decades, a lifetime, I´ve listened to  ¨concerned¨ Christians/others, self-righteous or plain crude/stupid, whining or stridently barking ¨for my own good¨ chatter/slander regarding  LGBTI Christians/others as the vicious know-it-all´s at Church determine who is an ¨abomination¨  and who ain´t (in their own words)! 

As if self-righteous religious  ¨selective scriptural smoozers¨ knew my heart or my soul or yours!  Bigotry is simply pure arrogance revealed to me/us over and over again, day in and day out endlessly and sometimes even repackaged to appear more ¨Godly¨ (which also overwishfully covers the ill-will of the preachies).

Many demonizers of others are emotionally and spiritually twisted criminals who, once again, ¨know not what they do¨  as they incite and then instigate hate crimes against innocent LGBTI people worldwide--Uganda in Africa is a sad/dangerous example of U.S. ¨religious fundamentalist¨ promoting  evil abroad.  

Dressing up for Sunday School, writing a big check or slipping on mitres, robes and/or handmade stoles will not change the appearance of ones deeply flawed character...yours or mine.  Good personal character that anti-LGBTI Christians/others expect us to believe they actually possess as they announce ¨Gods Plan for Sexuality¨  and other presumptuous morally-flawed ¨exclusive¨ rubbish.

Speaking for a God that blamers, shamers, common greedsters and thieves think they know so well  is scary, it´s harmful/hurtful, and yes, it´s also 100% distilled hogwash!  Pit bulls wearing lipstick comes to mind.

How Can Christian Students More Effectively Hate Homosexuals?

By Evan Hurst

¨Ashley Horne and Candi Cushman of Focus on the Family have the answer! Unfortunately the video isn’t embeddable, presumably because it’s embarrassing. The video is about Focus’s “Day of Dialogue,” in which they seek to deflect public attention from the blood all over fundamentalist Christian hands when it comes to the bullying and, all too often, suicides among gay teens.

Anyway, they don’t use the word “hate,” but rather use coded dogwhistles and catch phrases like “God’s plan for sexuality,” and other tripe meant to soothe the brainwashed.">HERE

How dare those legal and social commentators, who never miss an opportunity to praise the Jehovah's Witnesses for stretching the boundaries of the First Amendment, now condemn the Westboro Baptists, whose actions in our time are no more outrageous than were the actions of the Jehovah's Witnesses during World War 2.

During WW2, Jehovah's Witnesses specifically targeted the homes of parents and spouses of wounded and killed soldiers -- knocked on those doors -- and told wives, mothers, and fathers that their husbands and sons had died not only needlessly and pointlessly, but in support of a government which GOD considered His enemy and would soon destroy.

During WW2, Jehovah's Witnesses would show up at War Bond Rallies and spew the same garbage.

1940s Jehovah's Witnesses would park sound trucks across the street from public schools and during recess and blast the school campus with pre-recorded sermons decrying the Pledge of Allegiance. There were also instances of JWs going inside school buildings and passing out anti-Pledge literature to children in the hallways.

JWs also parked sound trucks outside of churches during ongoing services and blasted churches with pre-recorded sermons decrying church teachings.

JWs carried phonographs with pre-recorded sermons door-to-door decrying patriotism, Christianity, etc. During WW2, a WW1 veteran and then Deputy Sheriff ran two JWs out of his gasoline station after they started playing such a recording. One of the JW "pioneers" pulled a pistol and murdered the Deputy.

Post WW2, the WatchTower Society made a point of renting for conventions those facilities which had been named or renamed in honor of the WW2 veterans (Memorial Coliseum, Veterans Stadium, etc. etc.) so as to poke their fingers in the eyes of returning veterans and the cause for which they had fought, been wounded, or died.

1940s Jehovah's Witnesses would specifically target urban Catholic neighborhoods with door-to-door sermons and literature which defamed the Pope and other Catholic hierarchy, Catholic theology, etc.

The JWs of WW2 were the Westboro Baptists of today.

Make up your minds, commentators.
