The Root of All Evil

Hat-tip to Balloon-Juice, my new favorite non-religious blog ….

Page One Q reports:

In a September 25th blog post titled ‘The Nation Will Right Itself If It Fixes Sex’, Christian Civil League of Maine Executive Director Michael Heath writes that the financial crisis facing Wall Street is a symptom of America’s sinful sexual culture, including the acceptance of gay unions.

“Our crisis is a symptom, not the cause,” writes Michael Heath. “I am not saying I know whether this financial crisis is God’s judgment or not. It is not for me to know that definitively.”

So once again it’s The Geeeyyys (as Sistah Girl, herself a geeeyyy calls all of us LGBT folks) that are the root of all evil in this country.  I’m sorry I thought it was the love of money.  Where did I get that from?

Look up I Timothy 6:10

More and more more I am convinced that many fundamentalists and quite a few so-called evangelicals really don’t know too much about the Bible …

Well, as Mad Priest so often puts it: “We always knew it was all your fault, RB!” 🙂

Well let’s not forget that the 9/11 terrorists attacks were also blamed on gay people and the moral decline of America; that Pat Robertson and the late Jerry Falwell spew(ed) such nonsense is not surprising, but to discover that like-minded simpletons exist here, in New England, well that’s just shocking…
