Scumbag Christo-Fascist Mike Huckabee with one of his favorite child molesters and Christo-Fascist hypocrite Josh Duggar.

First, this is a posting, taken directly from this sickening, two-faced, low-life hypocrite Mike Huckabee’s own Facebook Page about the perverts Josh Duggar and his sickening parents.

Janet and I want to affirm our support for the Duggar family. Josh’s actions when he was an underage teen are as he described them himself, ‘inexcusable,’ but that doesn’t mean ‘unforgivable.’ He and his family dealt with it and were honest and open about it with the victims and the authorities. No purpose whatsoever is served by those who are now trying to discredit Josh or his family by sensationalizing the story. Good people make mistakes and do regrettable and even disgusting things. The reason that the law protects disclosure of many actions on the part of a minor is that the society has traditionally understood something that today’s blood-thirsty media does not understand—that being a minor means that one’s judgement is not mature. No one needs to defend Josh’s actions as a teenager, but the fact that he confessed his sins to those he harmed, sought help, and has gone forward to live a responsible and circumspect life as an adult is testament to his family’s authenticity and humility. Those who have enjoyed revealing this long ago sins in order to discredit the Duggar family have actually revealed their own insensitive bloodthirst, for there was no consideration of the fact that the victims wanted this to be left in the past and ultimately a judge had the information on file destroyed—not to protect Josh, but the innocent victims. Janet and I love Jim Bob and Michelle and their entire family. They are no more perfect a family than any family, but their Christian witness is not marred in our eyes because following Christ is not a declaration of our perfection, but of HIS perfection. It is precisely because we are all sinners that we need His grace and His forgiveness. We have been blessed to receive God’s love and we would do no less than to extend our love and support for our friends. In fact, it is such times as this, when real friends show up and stand up. Today, Janet and I want to show up and stand up for our friends. Let others run from them. We will run to them with our support.

Mike Huckabee Says Josh Duggar’s Child Molestation Confession Doesn’t Count

Mike Huckabee’s defense of the Duggars hit an absurd level of hypocrisy when he claimed that Josh Duggar’s confession doesn’t really count during an appearance on Fox News.

Transcript via Fox News:

HUCKABEE: Megyn, he was an unadjudicated minor at the time that this happened. You’re an attorney. You understand that a person is innocent until proven guilty.

KELLY: But he confessed.

HUCKABEE: He was never adjudicated. He did not confess in a court of law. The law does not hold him accountable, even if he confesses. The bigger issue is not Josh, the bigger issue, the girls. How were the girls served? How were the victims served by the exploitation, by the release, the unlawful release, I’m going to go back and emphasize the illegal unlawful release of that information. It was not about the victims. It was about trying to go after the Duggars. They have been known as a family that is a Christian family. If a Liberal has anything like this kind of situation, it’s no big deal. And I think we all have heard the comparison between this and Lena Dunham who wrote about it in her book.

According to Huckabee, the Duggars are being persecuted by liberals. Apparently, a conservative evangelical Christian’s confession of several acts of child molestation only counts if it is made in a court of law. It is a tribute to the cumulative delusions of Fox News, the Duggars, and Mike Huckabee that they would continue to push the idea that Josh Duggar’s police report was illegally released.

Springdale City Attorney Earnest Cate has already debunked the idea that the release of the police report was illegal, “”On 5/20/15, in full compliance with Arkansas Law, the Springdale Police Department responded to a records request under the Arkansas Freedom of Information Act. The requested record was not sealed or expunged, and at the time the report was filed, the person listed in the report was an adult. Any names of minors included in the report, as well as pronouns, were redacted from the report by the Springdale Police Department in compliance with Arkansas law prior to release.”

Huckabee is trying to boost his flatlining presidential campaign by playing that favorite card of Republicans everywhere; the media is out to get us.

Child molester Josh Duggar and his crime covering up parents have been turned into martyrs by Fox News and Mike Huckabee. The effort to defend the Duggars has hit an illogical level of absurd. If the Duggars are an example of his theory of criminal prosecution, Mike Huckabee is unfit to be president.

Josh Duggar isn’t the only alleged child molester tied to Mike Huckabee

His co-author John Perry was accused of child molestation in two legal cases, Buzzfeed reports

By

ohn Perry, who co-authored two books with former Arkansas governor and current Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee, has been accused of child molestation in two separate lawsuits, Buzzfeed’s Andrew Kaczynski and Ilan Ben-Meir report.

Huckabee and Perry co-wrote “Do the Right Thing: Inside the Movement That’s Bringing Common Sense Back to America” and the ironically titled “Character Is the Issue.” Huckabee has come under fire for his repeated, vehement defenses of the Duggar family, who police records plainly demonstrate conspired to protect Josh Duggar even after they became that he had molested more than one of his sisters.

Nashville police department spokesperson Don Aaron told Buzzfeed News that “the alleged sexual battery was reported to have occurred when the victim was between the ages of 11 and 14,” but Perry was never prosecuted for the crime because the statute of limitations had expired by the time police became involved.

“As a result of the investigation, the allegations of sexual battery were sustained, but it was determined that the statute of limitations had tolled, barring prosecution. The victim was age 18 when she first disclosed the allegations to non-law enforcement and said at that time she did not want the matter reported to the Tennessee Department of Children’s Services or the police,” Aaron said.

The allegations came to light during Perry’s divorce proceedings, during which his ex-wife claimed that she “filed for divorce as a result of Mr. Perry’s inappropriate marital conduct, to which he admitted to in his Response to Interrogatories numbers 1 and 2.” Kaczynski and Ben-Meir suggest that the phrase “inappropriate marital conduct” is a euphemism for the alleged molestation, which couldn’t officially be entered into the record, as it had never been adjudicated.

In another series of lawsuit, Austin Davis is claiming that the Covenant Presbyterian Church in Nashville actively participated in a cover-up after Perry molested a girl from the time she was 11 until she was 13. The alleged victim told Buzzfeed that she doesn’t believe the church covered up the molestation, nor did it engage in a campaign to silence Davis.

Dog Gone Rumor: The son of former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee once killed a dog at Boy Scout camp.

A years-old bit of political gossip was brought back into the limelight in January 2015 when former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee, in an interview promoting his new book, publicly criticized the parenting skills of the First Couple, Barack and Michelle Obama. Many pundits were quick to point out an incident that was much discussed during Huckabee’s 2008 presidential campaign, one touted as calling Huckabee’s own parenting skills into question.

On 11 July 1998, two young men working as counselors at Camp Pioneer in Hatfield, Arkansas, killed a dog at that Boy Scout camp. One of those young men was 19-year-old Clayton Frady of Texarkana and the other David Huckabee, the youngest son of Arkansas Governor Michael Dale “Mike” Huckabee. David Huckabee was 17 at the time of the slaying, although he would turn 18 less than two weeks later. Both young men were fired over the

incident.

And that is where the undisputed facts of the story leave off. All the rest of the details, including why the dog was killed, how the dog was killed, and whether Governor Huckabee attempted (successfully or otherwise) to forestall investigations into his son’s act, is up for grabs and may never be knowable. (Thus we can only verify the basic fact that David Huckabee killed a dog at a Boy Scout camp, not he ancillary issue of whether he truly did so “brutally” or “for fun.”)

While the dog itself was consistently described as a stray that had wandered onto the property, the only additional description of it came from Marcal Young, scout executive of the Caddo Area Council that operated the camp where the animal was killed, who said the canine was “probably a mixed breed.”

As to why the dog was killed, different people have offered different reasons. Governor Huckabee said in 2007 interview conducted by Larry King that “It was mangy. It looked like it was going to attack.” The father of the other young man fired over the dog’s slaying said in a 1998 news article his son had come upon one or more Scouts who had the dog “hung over a limb and choking,” so his son helped “put it out of its misery.” Scout executive Young said in another 1998 news article the two young men had told him the dog appeared to be ill.

No one connected to any of the principals apparently wanted to talk about how the dog was dispatched. The only person in that group who said anything about this was Danny Frady, father of Clayton Frady (the other young counselor fired over the incident), and even he didn’t say what his son did; he only averred that when his son came upon the animal, it was being hanged by others. Anonymous rumors about how the dog was killed claim Frady and Huckabee hanged the dog, slit its throat, and stoned it to death.

But why would the young men have been fired if what they had done was merely to put a suffering animal out of its misery or strike down a sickly animal that looked like it was about to attack someone? Scout executive Young, the person who dismissed them from their jobs, said the pair were fired because they had violated a Scout law: “A Scout is kind.”

A December 2007 Newsweek article reported shortly after the animal’s death, the local prosecuting attorney wrote a letter to the Arkansas state police asking them to investigate the case to see if the two young men involved had violated state animal cruelty laws. The state police did not look into the matter, and no charges were filed.

John Bailey, then director of Arkansas’s state police, told Newsweek personnel in Governor Huckabee’s employ (his chief of staff and personal lawyer) leaned on him to write a letter officially denying the local prosecutor’s request for an investigation. Wrote Newsweek: “Bailey, a career officer who had been appointed chief by Huckabee’s Democratic predecessor, said he viewed the lawyer’s intervention as improper and terminated the conversation.” Bailey was fired by Huckabee seven months later, with (according to Bailey) one of the reasons given by Huckabee being that “I couldn’t get you to help me with my son when I had that problem.” Newsweek quoted I.C. Smith, the former FBI chief in Little Rock, as saying “Without question, [Huckabee] was making a conscious attempt to keep the state police from investigating his son.”

Governor Huckabee denied using his influence to keep police out of the matter, saying to Larry King: “Well, let me categorically say that is absolutely not true. I never used my influence. In fact, if anything, I said treat it like you would anything else. I don’t want special treatment for him or against him. My son was a minor at the time. It was not a criminal issue. It was an issue that was dealt with.”

Mike Huckabee celebrates Kentucky clerk’s refusal to issue marriage licenses to gay couples

AP_HUCKABEE_CRUZ_150909_DG_12x5_1600 meme

The Kentucky county-clerk saga and the clash between gay marriage and religious freedom has entered the national political stage.

Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, a 2016 GOP presidential candidate, came to the defense Wednesday of Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis, who has defied the Supreme Court by refusing to issue marriage licenses because of her religious objection to gay unions.

Mrs. Davis has refused “under God’s authority” to issue licenses to any couples — gay or otherwise — in the wake of the June Supreme Court ruling in favor of same-sex marriage, though her efforts to seek relief in federal court have failed.

She says issuing marriage licenses to gay couples would make her complicit in sinful action and this is a “heaven or hell” matter for her.

In an email blast, Mr. Huckabee said he “visited” with Mrs. Davis, a Democrat, over the telephone Wednesday to offer “my prayers and support.”

Mr. Huckabee, a former Southern Baptist pastor, said Mrs. Davis is “standing strong for religious liberty” and said the Supreme Court “cannot and did not make the law” on marriage.

“Because Congress has made no law allowing for same sex marriage, Kim does not have the Constitutional authority to issue a marriage license to homosexual couples,” Mr. Huckabee said.

Mr. Huckabee is running ninth in national polls, and eighth in Iowa, which opens the nomination contest and is seen as crucial to Mr. Huckabee’s chances of winning the Republican presidential nomination next year.

The 60-year-old rode the support of religious and social conservatives to victory in the 2008 Iowa caucuses, but faces stiff competition this go-round for that powerful slice of the GOP electorate, including from Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal and former Sen. Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania, winner of the 2012 caucuses.

A spokeswoman for Mr. Jindal said her boss approves of Mrs. Davis’s action, but would not go so far as to call for clerks to refuse court rulings.

Mr. Jindal thinks “every person should be able to follow their conscience, and clerks who cannot in good conscience participate in same-sex marriage should not be forced to violate their beliefs,” campaign spokeswoman Shannon Bates told The Associated Press.

On the other side of the issue, both businesswoman Carly Fiorina and Sen. Lindsey Graham said that while they back religious-liberty concerns in private disputes, Mrs. Davis is a government official who must abide by a law she is refusing to carry out.

“The rule of law is the rule of law,” Mr. Graham said Wednesday on the show of conservative talk-radio host Hugh Hewitt.

“I appreciate her conviction, I support traditional marriage, but she’s accepted a job in which she has to apply the law to everyone,” Mr. Graham said. “[She] should comply with the law or resign.”

In a Tuesday appearance on the same show, Mrs. Fiorina said that while “it’s clear religious liberty is under assault in many, many ways,” this case is “a very different situation for her than someone in a hospital who’s asked to perform an abortion or someone at a florist who’s asked to serve a gay wedding.”

“This woman now needs to make a decision that’s [about] conscience: Is she prepared to continue to work for the government, be paid for by the government, in which case she needs to execute the government’s will … [or] sever her employment with the government and go seek employment elsewhere where her religious liberties would be paramount,” Mrs. Fiorina said.

The dispute itself dragged on Wednesday in Kentucky, with Mrs. Davis again refusing requests for marriage licenses by several couples and her lawyers asking for another stay in the order by U.S. District Judge David Bunning that she issue marriage licenses to gay couples.

The Davis team’s argument this time, according to legal papers filed Wednesday, is based on a dispute over Gov. Steve Beshear’s order that she issue the marriage licenses.

Barring a stay, Mrs. Davis will appear in court Thursday in which Judge Bunning will decide whether to hold her in contempt of court for refusing to carry out his order.

Mr. Huckabee applauded Mrs. Davis for her stand Wednesday, using both the Christian language of martyrdom and the Declaration of Independence’s wording about the source of rights.

Kim is a person of great conviction,” Mr. Huckabee said. “When people of conviction fight for what’s right they often pay a price, but if they don’t and we surrender, we will pay a far greater price for bowing to the false God of judicial supremacy.”

“Government is not God. No man — and certainly no unelected lawyer — has the right to redefine the laws of nature or of nature’s God,” Mr. Huckabee said.

Death for Drug Dealers and Quarantines for AIDS Victims: The Mike Huckabee You May Not Remember

What the presidential candidate’s first campaign says about his current one.

By Tim Murphy

On Tuesday, Mike Huckabee made it official. The former Republican Arkansas governor and Fox News host launched his second bid for the White House in his hometown of Hope, Arkansas, vowing to stop the “slaughter” of abortion and calling for the protection of the “laws of nature” from the “the false God of judicial supremacy.”

Huckabee is joining a GOP field that’s bigger and more competitive than the one he out-hustled to win the Iowa caucuses seven years ago. The Christian conservatives who flocked to the former Baptist preacher in 2008 can now turn toward other evangelical-minded candidates in the GOP presidential race. Texas Sen. Ted Cruz is already in the hunt; former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum and and ex-Texas Gov. Rick Perry are mulling bids. But Huckabee of today is also a far different candidate than the affable ex-gov who once rocked a bass guitar while stumping with Chuck Norris (although Walker, Texas Ranger is officially on board for this campaign too). Since dropping out of the 2008 race, he’s flaunted a more combative, occasionally conspiratorial brand of politics—flirting with birtherism, advising prospective enlistees to avoid joining the armed forces until President Barack Obama has left office, and, just last month, warning social conservatives that the United States is “moving rapidly toward the criminalization of Christianity.”

By the standards of his political career, 2008 was in many ways an aberration. As he mounts a second run for the nomination, Huckabee is staying true to the kinds of red-meat issues he first entered politics to promote, in a long-shot 1992 bid for Senate against Democratic incumbent Dale Bumpers.

Huckabee, then a Baptist pastor who operated a small television station out of his Arkadelphia church, made sex and morality the centerpieces of his ’92 campaign—and he preached as fiery a message from the stump as he did from the pulpit. The novice politician let loose with eyebrow-raising tirades that occasionally put him to the right of the most fire-breathing conservatives. He endorsed quarantining AIDS patients, condemned efforts to shield homosexuals from discrimination, and called for the death penalty to be imposed on big-time drug dealers. He attacked Bumpers repeatedly as a libertine who supposedly supported giving condoms to 12-year-olds, sanctioned gay throuples, and voted to use taxpayer funds on “pornographic” art.

Huckabee’s 1992 platform was an artifact of the Moral Majority’s high-water mark. In interviews and on the stump he explained that the nation had strayed toward “selfishness and sensuality” and had been “savaged by radical groups bent on a moral and social agenda” at odds with Judeo-Christian values. “When I was in school, they passed out Gideon Bibles—today, they pass out condoms,” he said at stop after stop on the trail. In the new liberal order, Huckabee warned his hometown paper, the Hope Star, a family would consist of “three homosexual men living together.”

The gay agenda, he believed, was influencing and restricting the nation’s response to the AIDS crisis. He endorsed quarantining AIDS patients from the rest of society—a radical view even among conservatives at the time—while arguing that the severity of the epidemic had been exaggerated because gay people wielded so much political clout. The federal government should spend less money on AIDS, he insisted, and more on diseases that the afflicted had not brought on themselves, such as cancer.

“I realize a lot of people have received AIDS through blood transfusions, but AIDS is basically a lifestyle disease, and when the lifestyle is changed, the disease risk goes significantly down,” Huckabee said in one interview. AIDS advocates themselves, not taxpayers, should pony up: “Elizabeth Taylor went before Congress and made a big pitch that we needed more federal funding for AIDS. If Elizabeth Taylor would take one of the rings off her finger and sell it, she could get more money for AIDS research than the average Arkansan will make in two years of hard work. If she’s really serious about it, she’s got assets that she could dispose of. Why should she make me take money from my children’s future, and take it right off my table when she needs to cough up some of her own coin for that?”

Huckabee’s campaign literature made frequent note of Bumpers’ alleged favoritism toward gays. He attacked his opponent for supporting the Americans with Disabilities Act (because it included protections for AIDS patients) and a 1991 civil rights bill that would have prohibited housing discrimination based on sexual orientation. “Mr. Bumpers voted for all the bills which help to give homosexuals rights but takes away employers and others rights to protect themselves,” a Huckabee mailer asserted.

According to Huckabee, being gay wasn’t just a sin—it should be a criminal offense. Another Huckabee fact sheet noted that “Bumpers voted no on an amendment saying that ‘the homosexual movement threatens the strength and survival of the American family,’ and calling for enforcement of state sodomy laws,” which made gay sex a felony “crime against nature” in many states.

The ongoing conservative attack on the National Endowment for the Arts fit neatly into Huckabee’s narrative of Bumpers as a tool of the gay rights crowd. At the time, the federally funded agency was in the hot seat over a handful of artworks presenting religious symbols in ways critics considered blasphemous. Bumpers had said the art was in poor taste, but he voted not to defund the agency. Huckabee ran a radio ad accusing Bumpers of funding “pornography.” Bumpers called the ad “vile.”

“What’s vile,” Huckabee replied, “is having our tax dollars spent on photos of a man urinating in the mouth of another man, using tax dollars to fund a fictional story about the biblical character of Lazarus having homosexual liaisons with Jesus Christ before and after his resurrection, and funding for a jar of human urine in which a crucifix had been placed and entitled, ‘Piss Christ.'”

Then as now, Huckabee was a staunch opponent of abortion, a procedure he believed women underwent for superficial reasons. “Should we take a perfectly viable human being and end that human being’s life because the mother wants another semester of college or wants to play in a tennis tournament?” he asked one interviewer. And he proposed expanding the death penalty to include major drug dealers and anyone who, after committing a previous felony, shot someone with a gun—even if the shooting wasn’t fatal. “I know that’s harsh, but someone who has shot someone in the leg could easily shoot someone in the heart,” Huckabee said. (Huckabee did not respond to a request for comment on whether he still holds these views.)

Although Huckabee would later draw the ire of conservatives for raising taxes as governor of Arkansas, he took a die-hard stance on government spending. He called welfare “a new type of dependency and slavery” and warned that “the government has become a plantation system…The master is in the big house and we’re the sharecroppers out here.”

Late in the race, Huckabee discovered that his rival’s campaign had purchased more than a dozen videotapes of Huckabee’s old sermons, a potential opposition research gold mine. He suggested Bumpers watch them. “I hope he listens to the message on pornography that I presented a couple of years ago,” he said in a press release, “because then he’ll know why I feel so strongly about the way pornography degrades women and children, dehumanizes sex into animal behavior, and why I so vigorously oppose the use of my tax dollars being used to fund it.” The Bumpers campaign never did anything with the tapes Huckabee had encouraged the senator to watch.

Fire-and-brimstone Huckabee ultimately fell flat—he lost by 20 points. But the race provided a launching pad for his quick ascent up the political ladder. In later years, as he grew into a more polished politician, Huckabee became more protective of his old sermons. During the 2008 presidential campaign, reporters were told that videos of his sermons had been destroyed—or that they still existed and were open to the public but not to reporters. Huckabee, meanwhile, lasted longer than anyone expected in 2008 by crafting a reputation as a wisecracking pol who poked fun at Republicans who use “summer as a verb.”

“I think he’s the same guy who started out,” says Max Brantley, editor of the Arkansas Times, who covered the 1992 race. “He’s got a penchant for sort of cheap-shot quips. He thinks a lot of himself. He thinks he can talk himself out of anything. The main thing I still marvel at is how many people think he’s a nice guy, because he’s got a real mean streak.”

But at this point, after spending the years since the 2008 election feeding red meat to his base, the tapes may not even matter much. In just the last six months, he’s urged states to ignore a possible Supreme Court ruling on same-sex marriage and attacked Jay-Z for “arguably  crossing the line from husband to pimp by exploiting his wife [Beyonce] as a sex object.” Researchers won’t have to scour church basements for dusty VHS cassettes containing his stem-winding sermons. They can just turn on the television.

Huckabee: The ‘Best Way’ To Deal With Poor Thieves Is To Sell Them As Slaves

By John Prager

Ben Carson isn’t the only GOP 2016 hopeful who thinks literal slavery is the answer to something. While the GOP’s current favorite among its small stable of interchangeable apologists thinks that enslavement is the answer to undocumented immigration, former Arkansas governor and friend of child molesters everywhere Mike Huckabee has another great as to how to improve Americans’ lives through slavery.

While you may assume, given his extreme-right leanings, that he might suggest African-Americans as the ones who should be in chains, Huckabee has a better idea: If poor people are caught stealing, they should be sold into slavery — even if, as it says in Proverbs, the Bible would command him to forgive a thief who steals to eat. On Wednesday during an appearance on Iowa morning radio program Mickelson in the Morning, the program’s host complained that the “criminal justice system has been taken over by progressives.”

To win this imaginary war with folks who believe people have rights, Jan Mickelson explained, we need look only to one book — no, not a book of laws. He means the Bible, of course. Suggesting the book of Exodus as a proposed basis for our laws, Mickelson explained that  “if a person steals, they have to pay it back two-fold, four-fold,” and “if they don’t have anything, we’re supposed to take them down and sell them.” Exodus 22 reads:

“When a man steals an ox or a sheep and butchers it or sells it, he must repay five cattle for the ox or four sheep for the sheep. [b]If a thief is caught in the act of breaking in, and he is beaten to death, no one is guilty of bloodshed.But if this happens after sunrise,[c] there is guilt of bloodshed. A thief must make full restitution. If he is unable, he is to be sold because of his theft. If what was stolen—whether ox, donkey, or sheep—is actually found alive in his possession, he must repay double.”

So, yes, it’s no secret that the Bible is incredibly pro-slavery — but this is 2015, and no one is really stealing ox or sheep anymore, and we do have a little document Republicans pretend to revere called the Constitution that makes selling thieves into slavery impossible. Nevertheless, Huckabee latched on to the “sell the poor into slavery” idea very quickly.

Mickelson explained that jails are a “pagan invention” inferior to the proud tradition of slavery. “We indenture them and they have to spend their time not sitting on their stump in a jail cell, they’re supposed to be working off the debt,” the host said. “Wouldn’t that be a better choice?”

“Well, it really would be,” Huckabee answered almost instantaneously. “Sometimes the best way to deal with a nonviolent criminal behavior is what you just suggested.”

Of course, as Think Progress notes, slavery is not a viable solution to much of anything in America — not anymore:

But U.S. law, unlike biblical penal prescriptions, forbids selling human beings like chattel. The United States also bans debtors’ prisons and the Supreme Court has ruled that it is unconstitutional to imprison people who are too destitute to pay court fines. (Contra these bans,manylocalities are being sued for still running debtors’ prisons.)

In August, Mickelson pre-emptively agreed with Ben Carson that immigrants who can’t display their papers should become “property of the state,” and “then we start to extort or exploit or indenture your labor.” When a caller pointed out that “it sounds an awful lot like slavery,” Mickelson replied, “Well, what’s wrong with slavery?”

Unfortunately, we’re dealing with a party that has trouble recognizing the moral failings of a pro-slavery stance. This is why it is important to get out and vote next year. Thanks to voter apathy on our side, we now have both chambers of Congress filled with people who share these, and other horrible viewpoints. The GOP can’t even elect a Speaker of the House because the House of representatives is held hostage by a group of about 40 extremists who will only vote for someone if they agree to gut social programs and defund women’s health care.

If you’re not registered to vote, do it. If your state has repressive voter ID legislation in place, get all necessary documentation so you are not deprived of your rights. This upcoming election is, perhaps, the most important in recent history because if we lose there, we will lose everything we have achieved over the past sixty years.

MY COMMENTS TO CHRISTO-FASCIST PSYCHO MIKE HUCKABEE

Well you disgusting, low-life, piece of shit, Christo-Fascist, Mike Huckabee, what can we really say about your disgusting, sorry ass? Why I will let the bible and your Jesus you proclaim to follow, do most of the speaking for me.

1. Jesus on the subject of those who harm children:

Matthew 18: 1-10 KJV: 1. At the same time came the disciples unto Jesus, saying, Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven? 2. And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of them,And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven. Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven. And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name receiveth me.But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea. Woe unto the world because of offences! for it must needs be that offences come; but woe to that man by whom the offence cometh!

Wherefore if thy hand or thy foot offend thee, cut them off, and cast them from thee: it is better for thee to enter into life halt or maimed, rather than having two hands or two feet to be cast into everlasting fire. And if thine eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: it is better for thee to enter into life with one eye, rather than having two eyes to be cast into hell fire.

10 “See that you do not look down on one of these little ones. For I tell you that their angels in heaven always see the face of my Father in heaven.”

So Mike Huckabee. I guess your buddies Josh Duggar and John Perry should do one of two things….either tie a huge millstone around their necks and throw themselves into the ocean above the Mariana Trench, or cut their hands and dicks off.

2. Jesus on adultery and what should be done to adulteresses, like your buddy Kim Davis.

Mark 10:2-12 KJV: And the Pharisees came to him, and asked him, Is it lawful for a man to put away his wife? tempting him. And he answered and said unto them, What did Moses command you? And they said, Moses suffered to write a bill of divorcement, and to put her away. And Jesus answered and said unto them, For the hardness of your heart he wrote you this precept. But from the beginning of the creation God made them male and female. For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and cleave to his wife; And they twain shall be one flesh: so then they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder. 10 And in the house his disciples asked him again of the same matter. 11 And he saith unto them, Whosoever shall put away his wife, and marry another, committeth adultery against her. 12 And if a woman shall put away her husband, and be married to another, she committeth adultery.

What does the bible says should be done to adulterers?

Leviticus 20:10: 10 And the man that committeth adultery with another man’s wife, even he that committeth adultery with his neighbour’s wife, the adulterer and the adulteress shall surely be put to death.

Now Mike Huckabee, seeing that your whore adulteress, Kim Davis was certainly NOT a virgin, on her second, third or fourth wedding night, let’s see what the bible says should be done to her about that.

Deuteronomy 20: 13-21: 13 If any man take a wife, and go in unto her, and hate her, 14 And give occasions of speech against her, and bring up an evil name upon her, and say, I took this woman, and when I came to her, I found her not a maid: 15 Then shall the father of the damsel, and her mother, take and bring forth the tokens of the damsel’s virginity unto the elders of the city in the gate: 16 And the damsel’s father shall say unto the elders, I gave my daughter unto this man to wife, and he hateth her; 17 And, lo, he hath given occasions of speech against her, saying, I found not thy daughter a maid; and yet these are the tokens of my daughter’s virginity. And they shall spread the cloth before the elders of the city. 18 And the elders of that city shall take that man and chastise him; 19 And they shall amerce him in an hundred shekels of silver, and give them unto the father of the damsel, because he hath brought up an evil name upon a virgin of Israel: and she shall be his wife; he may not put her away all his days. 20 But if this thing be true, and the tokens of virginity be not found for the damsel: 21 Then they shall bring out the damsel to the door of her father’s house, and the men of her city shall stone her with stones that she die: because she hath wrought folly in Israel, to play the whore in her father’s house: so shalt thou put evil away from among you.

I guess Mike Huckabee, if you are a real man of God and proclaim how gays and lesbians should be put to death, because of Leviticus then YOU as a man of God, should take your whore, adulteress, Kim Davis to her fathers house, and stone her to death at the doorway. For if YOU do not, then YOU are allowing an abomination in your midst.

Next up Mike Huckabee, let’s see what Jesus and the bible says about helping the poor:

Matthew 25: 34-46 KJV: 34 Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: 35 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: 36 Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me. 37 Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink? 38 When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee? 39 Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee? 40 And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me. 41 Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels: 42 For I was an hungry, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink: 43 I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not. 44 Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungry, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee? 45 Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me. 46 And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.

Proverbs 19:17: KJV: 17 He that hath pity upon the poor lendeth unto the Lord; and that which he hath given will he pay him again.

Deuteronomy 15: 7-11 KJV: If there be among you a poor man of one of thy brethren within any of thy gates in thy land which the Lord thy God giveth thee, thou shalt not harden thine heart, nor shut thine hand from thy poor brother: But thou shalt open thine hand wide unto him, and shalt surely lend him sufficient for his need, in that which he wanteth. Beware that there be not a thought in thy wicked heart, saying, The seventh year, the year of release, is at hand; and thine eye be evil against thy poor brother, and thou givest him nought; and he cry unto the Lord against thee, and it be sin unto thee. 10 Thou shalt surely give him, and thine heart shall not be grieved when thou givest unto him: because that for this thing the Lord thy God shall bless thee in all thy works, and in all that thou puttest thine hand unto. 11 For the poor shall never cease out of the land: therefore I command thee, saying, Thou shalt open thine hand wide unto thy brother, to thy poor, and to thy needy, in thy land.

Luke 14: 12-14 KJV: 12 Then said he also to him that bade him, When thou makest a dinner or a supper, call not thy friends, nor thy brethren, neither thy kinsmen, nor thy rich neighbours; lest they also bid thee again, and a recompence be made thee. 13 But when thou makest a feast, call the poor, the maimed, the lame, the blind: 14 And thou shalt be blessed; for they cannot recompense thee: for thou shalt be recompensed at the resurrection of the just.

Proverbs 14:31: 31 He that oppresseth the poor reproacheth his Maker: but he that honoureth him hath mercy on the poor.

Leviticus 25:35 KJV: 35 And if thy brother be waxen poor, and fallen in decay with thee; then thou shalt relieve him: yea, though he be a stranger, or a sojourner; that he may live with thee.

Yes Mike Huckabee, with the way YOU and your fellow Repugnants, attack the poor, and the evil you do against them, you certainly are no Christian. Your wanting to put a poor person into slavery, because they had to steal to get food? That is far above an abomination. For your bible and your Jesus commanded YOU and your fellow Repugnants, who dare call yourselves Christians, to do all that you can to help the poor, not destroy them, take away what little they have, and insult and denigrate them. I guess Mike Huckabee, that YOU will not be spending your eternity where YOU and your fellow Repugnants THINK you will be spending your eternity now will you?

Huckabee, you support and defend child molesters. You support and defend the bigots and haters of your psychotic religion. You support and defend ChristoFascism.

You also proclaim that the United States and the Founding Fathers, founded this nation on Christianity. Yet YOU and others like you, who spew these well worn lies out of your well used outhouse ChristoFascist pieholes, apparently never really read the words of Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, James Madison, George Washington, Thomas Paine and many others. So I will leave you with this you disgusting, low-life, piece of human waste ChristoFascist. This comes directly from President Thomas Jefferson’s own religious freedom act titled the Virginia Statute for Religious Freedom.

What exactly is ChristoFascism?

WHAT EXACTLY IS CHRISTOFASCISM?

One of the many examples of ChristoFascism.
One of the many examples of ChristoFascism.

The Urban Dictionary defines ChristoFascists as this:

Christian religious extremist. Often a person who believes in forcing a right-wing Christian agenda on the rest of the world. Also known as a ‘fundamentalist’ or more recently ‘evangelical’.

Since many Christofascists bristle at the term ‘fundamentalist’ there has been a movement to get the media to refer to them as ‘evangelicals.’ However the term ‘evangelical’ is a misleading one as many Christian sects are evangelical in nature and not all evangelical Christians have such extremem views or political agendas. Christofascist is a more descriptive term for these right-wing extremists.

Urban Dictionary: Christofascist

The following definition comes from Wikipedia:

Christofascism (a portmanteau of Christian and fascism) is a concept in Christian theology first mentioned by Dorothee Sölle, a Christian theologian and writer, in her book Beyond Mere Obedience: Reflections on a Christian Ethic for the Future in 1970.[1][2][3] To Sölle, Christofascism was caused by the embracing of authoritarian theology by the Christian church. According to Sölle, it is an arrogant, totalitarian, imperialistic attitude characteristic of the Protestant Reich Church that she believed to be alive and well in the theological scene of the late 20th and turn of the 21st century.[4][5]

Usage of the term became much more prominent in 2006–08,[6] as a backlash against increasing usage of the word Islamofascism by conservatives in the U.S., for example David Horowitz.[7]

Interpretation of Soelle

Tom Faw Driver, Paul Tillich Professor Emeritus at Union Theological Seminary, expressed concern “that the worship of God in Christ not divide Christian from Jew, man from woman, clergy from laity, white from black, or rich from poor”. To him, Christianity is in constant danger of Christofascism, stating that “[w]e fear christofascism, which we see as the political direction of all attempts to place Christ at the center of social life and history” and that “[m]uch of the churches’ teaching about Christ has turned into something that is dictatorial in its heart and is preparing society for an American fascism”.[8][9]

Christofascism “disposed or allowed Christians, to impose themselves not only upon other religions but other cultures, and political parties which do not march under the banner of the final, normative, victorious Christ” – as Knitter describes Sölle’s view.[5][10]

George Hunsinger, director of the Centre for Barth Studies at Princeton Theological Seminary, regards the conception of Christofascism as being an attack, at a very sophisticated level of theological discourse, on the biblical depiction of Jesus. He equates what is viewed as Christofascism with “Jesus Christ as depicted in Scripture” and contrasts it with the “nonnormative Christology” that is offered as an alternative by some theologians, which he characterizes as extreme relativism that reduces Jesus Christ to “an object of mere personal preference and cultural location” and that he finds difficult to see as not contributing to the same problems encountered by the Christian church in Germany that were noted by theologian Karl Barth.[11]

Christomonism

Douglas John Hall, Professor of Christian Theology at McGill University, relates Sölle’s concept of Christofascism to Christomonism, that inevitably ends in religious triumphalism and exclusivity, noting Sölle’s observation of American fundamentalist Christianity that Christomonism easily leads to Christofascism, and that violence is never far away from militant Christomonism. (Christomonism, accepts only one divine person, Jesus Christ.) He states that the over-divinized (“high”) Christology of Christendom is demonstrated to be wrong by its “almost unrelieved anti-Judaism“. He suggests that the best way to guard against this is for Christians not to neglect the humanity of Jesus Christ in favour of his divinity, and to remind themselves that Jesus was also a Jewish human being.[12][13][14]

American history and politics

American historians and political commentators have also used the term to refer to politico-religious tendencies in American society.

Chris Hedges and David Neiwert contend that the beginnings of American Christofascism was during the Great Depression, when Americans espoused forms of fascism that were “explicitly ‘Christian’ in nature.”[15]:88 Hedges writes that “fundamentalist preachers such as Gerald B. Winrod and Gerald L. K. Smith fused national and Christian symbols to advocate the country’s first crude form of Christo-fascism.”[16] Smith’s Christian Nationalist Crusade said that “Christian character is the basis of all real Americanism.”[16] Hedges also considers another prominent advocate of Christofascism was William Dudley Pelley.[15]:88

By the late 1950s, followers of these philosophies became the John Birch Society, whose policy positions and rhetoric have greatly impacted modern dominionists.[16] Likewise, the Posse Comitatus movement began with former associates of Pelley and Smith.[15]:90 The 1980s saw the Council for National Policy[16] and the Moral Majority[17][18] carry on the tradition, while the patriot movement and militia movement represented efforts to mainstream the philosophy in the 1990s.[15]:90

Policy

Episcopal priest Carter Heyward, professor of theology at Episcopal Divinity School, uses the term to describe political and social policies that exclude nontraditional families in the name of Christianity, a practice she described as “arrogant and blasphemous.”[19]

Judeo-Christofascism

Jonathan Turley referred to conservatives who wished to make Representative Keith Ellison, a Muslim, swear in on a Bible as “Judeo-Christofascists”, in response to the use of “Islamofascists.”[20]

Miscellaneous usage

Incidents of anti-abortion violence, including the bombings committed by Eric Robert Rudolph and the assassination of George Tiller, have also been called Christofascism.[15]:90–91[21]

The term caused controversy in 2007, when Melissa McEwan, a campaign blogger for then-presidential candidate John Edwards, referred to religious conservatives as “Christofascists” on her personal blog.[22][23]

What is Christofascism?

By Plubius

This article originally appeared on TCS Daily, and appears here in a modified and shortened version.

“Christofascist”–used to describe the accused Scott P. Roede in the killing of Dr. Tiller, has been met by protests from Christians who say the term is an insult to their religion. The meaning and origin of the concept, as well as the legitimacy of complaints about it, have become relevant — perhaps urgently so.

Christofascism refers to use of the faith of Christianity as a cover for totalitarian ideology. This radical phenomenon is embodied among American Christians today in the various Militia movements, White Supremacist, and Christian Identity movements, and where these radical, armed, and Christian racist groups overlap with the Pro-Life movement and the right wing of the American political landscape, including the fringes of the Republican party.

Political typologies should make distinctions, rather than confusing them, and Christofascism is neither a loose nor an improvised concept. It should be employed sparingly and precisely. The indicated movements should be treated as Christofascist, first, because of their congruence with the defining characteristics of classic fascism, especially in its most historically-significant form–German National Socialism.

Fascism is distinguished from the broader category of extreme right-wing politics by its willingness to defy public civility and openly violate the law. As such it represents a radical departure from the tradition of ultra-conservatism. The latter aims to preserve established social relations, through enforcement of law and reinforcement of authority. But the fascist organizations of Mussolini and Hitler, in their conquests of power, showed no reluctance to rupture peace and repudiate parliamentary and other institutions; the fascists employed terror against both the existing political structure and society at large. It is a common misconception of political science to believe, in the manner of amateur Marxists, that Italian fascists and Nazis sought maintenance of order, to protect the ruling classes. Both Mussolini and Hitler agitated against “the system” governing their countries. Their willingness to resort to street violence, assassinations, and coups set the Italian and German fascists apart from ordinary defenders of ruling elites, which they sought to replace. This is an important point that should never be forgotten. Fascism is not merely a harsh dictatorship or oppression by privilege.

Christofascism similarly pursues its aims through the willful, arbitrary, and gratuitous disruption of (global) society, either by terrorist conspiracies or by violation of the peace between states .  In its long and inglorious history, the KKK frequently made recourse to the former weapon. Beginning in the late nineteenth century, white supremacist Ku Klux Klan members in the Southern United States engaged in arson, beatings, cross burning, destruction of property, lynching, murder, rape, tar-and-feathering, and whipping against blacks, other social or ethnic minorities, and whites who stood in their way. These are not acts of protest, but calculated strategies for political advantage through undiluted violence. The Army of God shows fascist methods when executing attacks against abortion clinics and doctors across the United States. A number of terrorist attacks, including the Centennial Olympic Park bombing during the 1996 Summer Olympics, were carried out by individuals and groups with ties to the Christian Identity and Christian Patriot movements; including the Aryan Nations and the Lambs of Christ. Christofascism  is not limited to America, and American Christofascts is not limited to America: a group called Concerned Christians unsuccessfully planned to attack holy sites in Jerusalem at the end of 1999, believing that their deaths would “lead them to heaven.”

Christofascism has global reach.  The fascist Iron Guard in Romania during the interwar period and in the second world war was explicitly Christian–its official title was the “Legion of the Archangel Michael;” Christian fascism also exists in the form of Ulster Protestant terrorism, and was visible in the (Catholic) Blue Shirt movement active in the Irish Free State during the 1920s and 1930s. Both the Iron Guard and the Blue Shirts attracted noted intellectuals; the cultural theorist Mircea Eliade in the first case, the poet W.B Yeats in the second. Many similar cases could be cited.

Fascism rested, from the economic perspective, on resentful middle classes, frustrated in their aspirations and anxious about loss of their position. The Italian middle class was insecure in its social status; the German middle class was completely devastated by the defeat of the country in the First World War. Both became irrational with rage at their economic difficulties; this passionate and uncontrolled fury was channeled and exploited by the acolytes of Mussolini and Hitler. The Army of God and the Militia movements are, like the KKK before them, based largely the middle and lower classes of the Southern and rural United states fearful of losing their unstable hold on prosperity and angry at the many obstacles, in state and society, to their ambitions.  They believe themselves to be Real Americans, and the victim of discrimination by forces larger then themselves that are destroying America: secularism, socialism, sexual and moral lassitude, or in their words: the Godless, the nanny state and the fags.  Anti-semitism varies.

Fascism was imperialistic; it demanded expansion of the German and Italian spheres of influence. While many Christofascist are anti-government, many also see the power of the state as useful to its aims, and these contradictory streams [similar to the brown-shirt schizoid worship and abhorrence of power and hierarchy] of Christofascism have similar fascistic ambitions: the occupation of Iraq being stage one in the domination of the middle east under a War on Terror that in the words of George W. Bush, “a Crusade.”  — which if you don’t know means Holy War.

Fascism was totalitarian; i.e. it fostered a totalistic world view–a distinct social reality that separated its followers from normal society. Christofascism parallels fascism by imposing a strict division between Christians and alleged unbelievers.  I think I do not need to belabor the point, other then to point out that we all are familiar with those streams Christianity that condemn to hell all others who do not adopt their rigid interpretation of Scripture.  Fuse that religious bigotry with white power, and you have a potent mix.
Fascism was paramilitary; indeed, the Italian and German military elites were reluctant to accept the fascist parties’ ideological monopoly. The Army of God, the KKK, and the Militia movements are all paramilitary.

But what of those primitive Chrisians who declare that “Christofascim” is a slur? I do not believe these characteristics are intrinsic to any element of the faith of Christianity. Christofascism is a distortion of Christianity, exactly as Italian and German fascism represented perversions of respectable patriotism in those countries. Nobody argues today that Nazism possessed historical legitimacy as an expression of German nationalism; only Nazis would make such claims, to defend themselves. Similarly, Christofascists and their allies argue that their doctrines are “just Christianity.” But German culture existed for centuries, and exists today, without submitting to Nazi values; Christianity created a world-spanning civilization, surviving in a healthy condition in many countries today, without the Army of God or the KKK.

In anticipation of a counter to that last point, I will stress that authoritarianism and fascism are not the same. To emphasize, fascism is something different, and much worse, than simple dictatorship, however cruel the latter may be. That is a lesson that should have been learned 70 years ago, when German Nazism demonstrated that it was a feral and genocidal aberration in modern European history, not merely another form of oppressive rightist rule, or a particularly wild variety of colonialism.

Similarly, the violence wreaked by the Army of God, and Scott P. Roede, and the KKK before them, has been different from other expressions of reactionary Christianity, conservative Christianity or violent corruption in the post-colonial world. Between democracy, civilized values, and normal religion on one side, and Christofascism on the other, there can be no compromise: there is bright line, our republic on one side and the Christofascists on the other, and you are either with us or against us.  An earlier President was eerily correct when he foresaw “our young Democracy is fragile . . . this may be Christian Intolerance’s last and best opportunity to stop the advance of Liberty.” As with the Nazis, nothing short of a victory for democracy can assure the world’s security.

Pastor Wants Atheist Registry to Track Atheists like Sex Offenders

Aug 31 2011 Published by

“No man has a natural right to commit aggression on the equal rights of another, and this is all from which the laws ought to restrain him.” – Thomas Jefferson

Thomas Jefferson and his idealism be damned. What internet pastor Mike Stahl wants is an “atheist registry” to keep track of these dangerous elements in our society, like people who don’t believe in god, or any gods. This is a story right out of Nazi Germany. What’s next? Will we have our children “outing” us as atheists and pagans and heretics, and turning us over to the fundamentalist morality police to be conveniently culled from the herd?

Now as a disclaimer, I’m no atheist myself. I’m a polytheist. I should make that plain at the outset. But I don’t lose any sleep over people believing or not believing in my gods. I take Thomas Jefferson’s attitude toward the whole belief thing: “it does me no injury for my neighbor to say there are twenty gods, or no God. It neither picks my pocket nor breaks my leg.” Live and let live. I really don’t care what other people believe unless they try to force their belief or non-belief on me. Then we have a problem.

Here’s Stahl’s logic, which we have thanks to Ed Brayton at Dispatches from the Culture War because the cowardly Stahl is in hiding: he opens his blog to invitees only:

Brothers and Sisters , I have been seriously considering forming a ( Christian ) grassroots type of organization to be named “The Christian National Registry of Atheists” or something similar . I mean , think about it . There are already National Registry’s for convicted sex offenders , ex-convicts , terrorist cells , hate groups like the KKK , skinheads , radical Islamist’s , etc..

This type of “National Registry” would merely be for information purposes . To inform the public of KNOWN ( i.e., self-admitted) atheists . For example , let’s say you live in Colorado Springs , Colorado , you could simply scroll down ( from the I-Net site /Blog ) I would have , to the State of Colorado , and then when you see “Colorado Springs” , you will see the names of all the self-admitted atheist(s) who live there ( e.g., if an atheist’s name happened to be “Phil Small” ) . The individual’s physical address , and other known personal information would NOT be disclosed ( though , perhaps a photo could be ).

If this all seems completely incomprehensible and pointless to you, Pastor Stahl has his reasons:

Now , many (especially the atheists ) , may ask “Why do this , what’s the purpose ?” Duhhh , Mr. Atheist , for the same purpose many States put the names and photos of convicted sex offenders and other ex-felons on the I-Net – to INFORM the public ! I mean , in the City of Miramar , Florida , where I live , the population is approx. 109,000 . My family and I would sure like to know how many of those 109,000 are ADMITTED atheists ! Perhaps we may actually know some . In which case we could begin to witness to them and warn them of the dangers of atheism . Or perhaps they are radical atheists , whose hearts are as hard as Pharaoh’s , in that case , if they are business owners , we would encourage all our Christian friends , as well as the various churches and their congregations NOT to patronize them as we would only be “feeding” Satan.
Frankly , I don’t see why anyone would oppose this idea – including the atheists themselves ( unless of course , they’re actually ashamed of their atheist religion , and would prefer to stay in the ‘closet.’ ).

The dangers of atheism? Seriously? Shouldn’t we be more worried about the dangers of theocracy, the threat posed to the U.S. Constitution and First Amendment and the possibility of morality police invading our homes?

So why is it anyway that fundamentalists get so riled up if we don’t all believe in their god and their god alone? Well, they seem to think that their god is going to punish everyone, including (especially) them if we don’t all obey the rules – that Old Testament collective guilt thing with America as the next Sodom and Gomorrah.

Personally, I think a better solution is jettisoning any god who is going to punish us for any reason whatsoever. I wouldn’t waste spit on such a deity. That was one of the reasons I left Christianity behind in the first place. And seeing obscene ideas like this just makes that decision seem ever better in hindsight.

Maybe we should have a list of fundamentalist Christians. Why would any fundamentalist Christian oppose this idea? I mean, why would they unless they’re ashamed of their religion and want to stay in the closet (to use Stahl’s own words)? I mean, don’t we all have the right to know if our neighbor is a right wing lunatic who might open fire one day because he thinks his god told him to? I don’t know about you folks, but I’ve yet to hear of an atheist (or a polytheist for that matter) opening fire on folks because a god told him to.

I’ve known atheists and I’ve known Satanists and they were all much more reasonable and well-adjusted folks than Pastor Rick.

What’s amusing about Stahl’s attitude is he talks about being fearless and above board unless you have something to hide. Then when it all explodes in his face and people get angry with him for being a bigot, he makes his blog private and deletes his Facebook link. Even the cache is gone. I guess only atheists are supposed to have the courage of their convictions, eh, Pastor Mike? Some witness for your god you are! Seems like a lot of cowardice going around lately, what with Bryan Fischer, as I reported here this morning, refusing to stand up for his beliefs in open debate with the public he wants to force to go along with him.

Christian Pastor Calls For Atheists And Gays To Be Put To Death

From the Americans Against the Tea Party article: Christian Pastor Calls For Atheists And Gays To Be Put To Death

Blogger, author, troop-hater, and rape apologist, and all-around good guy “Reverend” Michael Crook feels there is a rape problem in America. The problem? The problem is that we think it exists. Oh, and atheists and gays should die.

Crook may be remembered for his website that demonized the troops for their choice to fight for their country, claiming that they are overpaid for their work (among a number of other awful things). Shortly following, he posed as an eighteen year old girl on Craigslist and, after learning prospective men’s personal information, proceeded to harass them–even posting their information on a web site dedicated to shaming men who sought sex on Craigslist.

After being thoroughly embarrassed by Sean Hannity of all people, Crook waged war on bloggers who posted screenshots of what must have been an overwhelmingly embarrassing experience for him–filing false DMCA complaints in an effort to take down anyone who spoke in any way ill of him. As part of a lawsuit settlement, Crook issued a public apology for his harassment.

Crook, who has referred to rape as “surprise sex,” said of the Steubenville rape victim, “She wore clothing that could, in my opinion, be reasonably perceived by those in her age bracket as inviting sexual contact, and by others as just plain “slutty,” which is an element that conveniently seems to exist in many accusations of “rape.” After her assailants received a slap on the wrist for their actions, Crook lamented that two young men’s lives are ruined.

It was once reported on his now-defunct blog that he had died, but rumors of his death were greatly exaggerated.

But what is he doing now?

Crook is still around, maintaining a Twitter feed with a whopping roughly-150 followers in which he spews his hatred–and if this is the first time you’ve heard of him, you’re going to be amazed that one human body can contain this much malice for humankind!

Crook covers a wide variety of topics in his veritable barrage of bigoted ramblings: from how rape isn’t real, to how atheists are worse than child molesters. Please enjoy (read: try not to vomit while looking at) what is quite possibly the most high-speed spewing of hateful garbage on the internet!

CHRISTOFASCISTS. I WILL LET THE WORDS OF PRESIDENT THOMAS JEFFERSON SPEAK FOR ME.

Thomas Jefferson and the Virginia Statute of Religious Freedom, Paragraph II
Thomas Jefferson and the Virginia Statute of Religious Freedom, Paragraph II

Thomas Jefferson and the Virginia Statute for Religious Freedom

Thomas Jefferson and the Virginia Statute of Religious Freedom, Paragraph II
Thomas Jefferson and the Virginia Statute for Religious Freedom, Paragraph II

The Virginia Statute for Religious Freedom is a statement about both freedom of conscience and the principle of separation of church and state. Written by Thomas Jefferson and passed by the Virginia General Assembly on January 16, 1786, it is the forerunner of the first amendment protections for religious freedom. Divided into three paragraphs, the statute is rooted in Jefferson’s philosophy. It could be passed in Virginia because Dissenting sects there (particularly Baptists, Presbyterians, and Methodists) had petitioned strongly during the preceding decade for religious liberty, including the separation of church and state.Jefferson had argued in the Declaration of Independence that “the laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle [man]….” The first paragraph of the religious statute proclaims one of those entitlements, freedom of thought. To Jefferson, “Nature’s God,” who is undeniably visible in the workings of the universe, gives man the freedom to choose his religious beliefs. This is the divinity whom deists of the time accepted—a God who created the world and is the final judge of man, but who does not intervene in the affairs of man. This God who gives man the freedom to believe or not to believe is also the God of the Christian sects.

The second paragraph is the act itself, which states that no person can be compelled to attend any church or support it with his taxes. It says that an individual is free to worship as he pleases with no discrimination.

II. Be it enacted by the General Assembly, that no man shall be compelled to frequent or support any religious worship, place, or ministry whatsoever, nor shall be enforced, restrained, molested, or burthened in his body or goods, nor shall otherwise suffer on account of his religious opinions or belief; but that all men shall be free to profess, and by argument to maintain, their opinion in matters of religion, and that the same shall in no wise diminish, enlarge, or affect their civil capacities.

Now, while anyone has a right to practice any religion they wish to practice, they do NOT have a right to force others to follow their religion. They do NOT have a right to make laws based upon their religious ideology. They do NOT have a right to demand that everyone follows their religious practices, or ideology, or continue to lie about how our nation was founded on Christianity, or lie about how all the “Founding Fathers” were Christians. Their own words prove they were not Christians, they were Deists, except for John Jay,  that they despised Christianity, that they insulted and denigrated it, and truly wanted a separation of church and state.

It is time to take a stand against the Christo-Fascists, who seek to take us back to the Dark Ages by attempting to force us to live by their religious bullshit. They seek to deny other citizens of the United States, the same rights they enjoy under our Constitution and Bill of Rights. They seek to deny women their right to what they can and cannot do with their own bodies. They seek to deny women even the basic rights of control over their own bodies. They want to go back to the days where women were at the mercy of men. They seek to deny rights to gays and lesbians, cherry picking which bible verses they demand the rest of the United States should follow, while ignoring a lot of other bible verses that would condemn them.

The hypocrisy and tactics of these Christo-Fascists, taking for instance Kim Davis, who is three times divorced, four times married, and would be deemed an adulteress and whore in her bible and it is commanded by the bible, that she should be put to death for her adulteries, but proclaims how evil same sex marriage is. She states she has been saved and therefor is no longer under the sin of adultery, but each and every time she lays with her fourth husband? She commits adultery again. Yet, the Reich-Wing ChristoFascists have chosen her as just one of the many they support, because she speaks the same self-righteous, cherry-picking, bible thumping language these ChristoFascists speak.

Again, it is high time, we truly stand up to these ChristoFascists who seek to take over our country and install their psychotic, bigoted, jack-booted Nazi like religion upon us all.
