American Christianity Self Destructing

Post by JO 753 » Sat Jan 27, 2018 9:03 pm

Hypocrisy haz reached the total saturation level.

No, wait. By that analojy, it eazed past that sumtime during the Bush jr. administration and then akselerated early in the Obama yirz az the rite wingnuts went to war agenst a Prez who koud credibly check all the boxez on their Christian Prezident wish list.

The analojy iz to a container uv pure dry granules into wich you are pouring a liquid. The granules will abzorb the liquid without raizing the level in the container until they cant abzorb any more. Then the level starts to rize and overflow if you keep pouring. If you keep pouring fast enuf, you will eventually wash all the orijinal content out.

Well, here in 2018, granules uv Christian valuez are still swirling around, but the glass iz getting 'clearer' all the time.

The only thing rong with the analojy iz that the 'granulez' can not be mistaken for any kind uv pure & consistent substans and the 'liquid' iz not water or anything clean & holsum. More like uzed enjin oil!

Sex scandals amongst Church leaderz and politicianz who champion Christianity are not new, but they are getting aired out in public all the time lately. There seem to be a few new wunz every week sins the beginning uv the Republican Primary Clown Show in 2015.

There are no moral boundry linez that Trump duz not cross, yet the suppozedly social conservativ Christian leaderz still go on the air to make excusez for him. They decried the Democrats who were expozed az sex offenderz, simultaneously supporting the Republican sex offender candidate for the Senate.

Herez the article by Steve Benen that got my typing fingerz going today: This Week in God Be sure to klik the link about the Satanic Church sueing the gummit over abortion rites. (pun not inteneded, but enjoy it anyway) The Christian villian iz now the good guy.

Pssst. It has nothing to do with character. It's skin color.
A black, intelligent, honorable president can do no right, while a rich, white moron can do no wrong.

Fake newz idea: Fite fire with fire and start a story about Trump eating babyz for lunch during the annual Republican Cannibalz uv America festival and lets see how the televanjelists twist that into a virtue.

It would be more accurate to say one particular faction of ... is self destructing.

The other factions (that are still the biggest religion in the USA).

Unless it's being said by master to acolyte, in which case, the congratulatory, "You got that rite," would be correct. :P
