The intent of this blog is to promote human equality, human progress, human peace and justice, and optimism. To accomplish this, to encourage the discussion of ideas after identifying and discovering problems, and then creating positive solutions for "we the people," in order to provide for the "general welfare" and "domestic tranquility" of America now and its "posterity" into the future. To encourage an emphasis on separation of religion and state for all, no matter if this is for those "of faith" in a Maker / Creator (Deists, God-loving people, Christians, various people of spirituality) and atheists or agnostics.

Moderation in All Things

I don’t like to quote the Bible. But since I have to deal with so many fundagelical puritanical people (puritan is saddened if there is someone, somewhere who is happy and having a good time).

Fundagelical puritans proclaim their form of Christianity as being the only and one way. BS (that is my college degree, right? Wrong. It is a BME). They will pick up the Bible and throw it at those of us who have a TRUE faith in GOD, his son, the Holy Spirit. HA! HA! I am thinking so big of myself, right? Well, what do the fundagelical puritans think? I have religious freedom in the USA, granted by the U.S. Constitution, so my belief and faith are just as important.

I mention these scriptures because of the word, “moderation.” Because of the word, “gentleness.” The fundagelical puritans are extremists and practice their faith, far from “moderation” or “gentleness.” They support the ideas of Hitler and that is far from being gentle, at all.

Moderation. All things in moderation. God helps those who help themselves. We pray, but don’t demand from God because we live up to his standards of love for neighbor. We don’t believe in “an eye for an eye or a tooth for a tooth” (vengeance like the vengeful attitudes of a sick man with the surname of Trump).

God says, “vengeance is mine, says the LORD” (Deuteronomy and/or Romans epistle). These folk who think they can have vengeance, like Putin and Trump, but they are not Christians just because they get support from fundagelical puritan dictators (or the Russian Orthodox Church).

Trump once spoke against the words of Christ who overturned the ideas of “eye for eye” and said to turn the other cheek. Forgiveness would be offered only to those who repent, not those who dig in their heals with vengeance.

Politically, moderation means “somewhere in the middle of the political spectrum” (paraphrase from Alfred North Lighthead). Fascist Republicans seeking a dictatorship in America proclaim those of us who are “moderate in thinking” as being extremist left wing. May their mouths be zippered shut with their lies and smearing of good Americans. 🤓🤓🤓🧐🧐🧐😎😎😎🤩🤩🤩

Michelle Bachman, the Homophobe

It’s been a long time!

“Judge not lest ye be judged.”  My grandmother often said this to me.  It seemed irritating as a kid to be lectured with some quote presumably from the Bible.  But in actuality, it has stuck.

Michelle Bachman needs to learn about this quote.  She may claim she has a “loving” way to “convert” gay people, but the fact she refuses to acknowledge people are gay tells me she is being judgmental.  So right back to Michelle Bachman:  by judging others, you are blaspheming our Creator.

John 1:1 speaks about the “Word” sent to the earth.  John 3:16-17 says, “For God so love the world he gave his only begotten son, that whosoever believes in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life.  God sent his Son to the world not to condemn the world but to save the world.”  The Word – Son of God – sent to the earth with a message about God and his love – not hatred – for humans of all kinds.

My grandmother also told me, “actions speak louder than words.”  The message of the “Word” was in His actions which speak louder than the words which came from His mouth.  Jesus Christ never condemned abortion or homosexuality.  Jesus Christ was very angry over deceptive greedy people ripping off the common folk while they were attempting to be true to God with their sacrifices.

“Now stop right there,” you say.  “Jesus spoke about fornicators and adulterers.”  Yes, indeed, He did.  But what is the root of the problem regarding fornication?  Is it sex or is it greed and selfishness?  Furthermore, if people like Michelle Bachman are going to point fingers at homosexuals, they are wrong.  There are more heterosexual fornicators in the workplaces of America than there are homosexual fornicators.  Homosexuals make up only 10% of the population, so by mere statistics, there are more heterosexual fornicators than there are homosexual ones.  So, why do the dimwitted Bible-thumping proof-texters point fingers at homosexuals?  Get over it.

JESUS NEVER CONDEMNED HOMOSEXUALITY!  (He never condemned abortion, either – another issue).  He DID condemn, with his actions, people like the American corporate CEOs – the ones which Charles Rangel wished to tax heavily on their bonuses (due to their extreme greed and deception).

But alas! Charles Rangel, like Jesus Christ, was figuratively “crucified!”  And that is the fear of people like Michelle Bachman and others as to why they will take a stand against a minority of people in this nation who don’t have as much money as the greedy CEOs.  She preaches her version of morality, but ignores the morality of greedy heterosexual fornicators and CEOs – and those who caused the problems – and continue to cause them – for this economy.  The important issues should be about the economy and providing jobs and opportunities.  These issues are not important to Michelle Bachman.  But get her in the White House so she can appoint new Supreme Court justices who will condemn abortionists and homosexuals.  That is her true desire, along with numerous other Republicans.

“Judge not lest ye be judged.”  “Jesus did not come into this world to condemn the world but to SAVE the world.”  I will not judge Michelle Bachman.  But Jesus Christ DID say it was okay to act in self-defense.  We may have to “turn the other cheek at first,” but Jesus Christ did not endorse the idea of sitting around like a bunch of wimps constantly being screwed.

Many people may believe what Bachman says, but the road to hell is wide and spacious and many will be on it.
