LYING – THE REPUBLICAN PASTIME.
With Donald Trump, Bryan Fischer, The Family Research Council and the Christian Post, just to name a few, generating hate and fear, slander and lies, is all a corner stone of their tactics to terrify the small minded conservatives into a state of horror. They have created an enemy where none exists, they have vilified other Americans with horrific lies and fabrications, and the worst of it all, they have perverted the Bible to such a degree as to destroy the credibility of being Christian. They have blackened that label so much as to turn millions of younger Americans away from church, most never to return, and many to declare they are no longer Christians at all. This is the legacy in America of the Fundamentalist conservative Right.
They have generated the lie that gay marriage rights will destroy marriage in America, even for straight couples. That has not happened, either in America, or the many nations where same sex marriage also exists. Straight couple don’t need an excuse to destroy their own marriages. They have been doing it all along for centuries.
They have created the fear of transgenders using the restrooms of their gender, claiming they are pedophiles and child molesters. In truth, there has been ZERO reported cased of an actual transgender involved in any case of rape or molestation in a public restroom in the United States. On the other hand, there have been thousands upon thousands of cases of STRAIGHT MEN, the real pedophiles and rapists, who have engaged in such crimes, and they don’t bother “dressing up” to do it.
These liars and merchants of HATE do all of this because they are paranoid, frightened and faithless people who are afraid of their own lives, so to make themselves feel secure, they need to destroy the lives of others. They are NOT Christian by any definition, and their very actions are a violation of everything we hold dear as Americans for equality and justice for all.
These people, and their lies about others, is the real abomination in the sight of God. “Thou shall not bear false Witness”. They make such an issue about following the Bible, and yet they violate that book just by opening their own mouths. “Judge not least you be judged”. Verse after verse in scripture is aimed at the people who do the hating and creating the lies and fear against others, especially those who are the outcasts and marginalized, the very people Jesus himself identified with and lived with, and died for. It was these liars, these Conservative Fundamentalists who are the Temple Priests and Pharisees who crucified Christ, and they are at it again, destroying the very spirit of what it means to be a Christian today.
Reject their lies. Turn away from their message of hate. People need to learn again to “love your neighbor as yourself”, rather than find a reason to hate them, wish them harm, or kill them. If you really are a person of faith, prove it by deeds of goodness and love, not evil and hate.
