"If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor. If an elephant has its foot on the tail of a mouse and you say that you are neutral, the mouse will not appreciate your neutrality." --Bishop Desmond Tutu

Just a dash more hate to go with the 2 minute hate

From Accidental Incidents

Yes, just a sprinkling of religious wingnuttery to go with the racism demonstrated by our fellow citizens in Pensyltucky. You can always count on the WorldNutDaily to reach for the stars when it comes to true wingnuttery, and they don't disappoint with this noxious screed from hate-filled Janet Porter. It's like every right-wing bit of hate rolled into one, condensed, easy-to-digest nugget! (I refuse to link to the site, so if you must, go find it on your own)
You cannot be a Christian and vote for Obama

To all those who name the name of Christ who plan to willfully disobey Him by voting for Obama, take warning. Not only is our nation in grave danger, according to the Word of God, so are you.

It must be really nice to have a hot-line to Christ for this election. Is she actually saying that Christ would vote for McCain? Really? What bible is she reading?
(I cut a bunch of the usual anti-choice rhetoric here about how Jesus loves little babies. GET OVER IT!!!! IT'S A FETUS NOT A BABY!!!! If you don't want to have an abortion, don't have one. Meanwhile, the rest of the women in the nation will go about their reproductive business without government or church interference in their well-established right to privacy. Same goes for marriage. If you don't want to have a same-sex marriage, DON'T HAVE ONE! But stop pretending you can tell others what to do with their lives.)

Obama will use your tax dollars to kill innocent children [aka FETUSES], and then he'll take your paycheck and use it to "spread the wealth around."
Didn't Jesus "spread the wealth around" when he broke up the money changers game in the Temple? Wasn't Jesus for social justice and equality? I don't remember Jesus talking about socialism except that "do unto others as you would have others do unto you" line. Kind of reminds me of Marx's line "From each according to his abilities, to each according to his needs." Was Jesus a Marxist???
Be forewarned: If you willfully disobey God on life and marriage because of race or false hope for the economy, you will usher in the kind of change that brought the Soviet Union to collapse.
I don't recall Jesus having an opinion about gay marriage. Or how gay marriage would bring about the end of the world. In fact, there isn't a single reference to homosexuality in the whole new testament, is there? But then, that never stopped these idiots from claiming what they claim. "Jesus Crucifies Fags".

What I do recall is this passage from Matthew 7: 1 - 2. "Do not judge, or you too will be judged. For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you." Judgment is reserved for the almighty, it is not for us to judge the behavior of our fellow men and women. It's funny how the wingnuts always forget about that passage. I guess they're too busy judging people.
But the warning goes far beyond that. To those who think that God's grace gives them license to willfully disobey Him without consequences – think again:

Not everyone who says to Me, "Lord, Lord," shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. Many will say to Me in that day, "Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?" And then I will declare to them, "I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!" (Matthew 7:21-23)

That deals with your eternity. Matthew 7:26-27 says if you don't obey God, prepare for a crash even sooner that that:

But anyone who hears my teaching and doesn't obey it is foolish, like a person who builds a house on sand. When the rains and floods come and the winds beat against that house, it will collapse with a mighty crash (Matthew 7:26-27).

I just hope you won't take the rest of the nation with you.
You know, I read that last paragraph in Matthew and I don't get how you get from that to the end of the world. All he's saying is that if you don't follow Jesus you're a fool. Then he uses an analogy that it's a foolish man who builds his house upon the sand. There is no logical connection between "you're a fool" and "end-of-the-world" here. What "interpretation" of that paragraph gets you to "end-of-the-world?" It's not an order to follow the teachings, Matthew is saying you'd be a fool not to, just like that fool who built her McMansion on a sandbar, but it ends there.

She's totally nuts.

If the word of God matters more to you than your perception of personal gain, Joel 2:12 issues a call to repentance I pray you will heed:

"Now, therefore," says the LORD, 'Turn to Me with all your heart, with fasting, with weeping, and with mourning'" (Joel 2:12).

Then obey Him in the voting booth and out of it. If not, do us all a favor and quit calling yourself a Christian.
The mind reels at the illogic of it all.
