If you reading this tonight, check out this church, the so-called "Rock" holding a political rally to take away a group’s right. It is playing live.
I wonder how these people must feel, clapping away listening to Miles McPherson constantly repeating himself, over and over. God, I don’t know how they can stand it. I barely can. And I wonder how these people feel, sitting in a church, clapping and supporting taking away a right of a group of people they disagree with. It can’t feel good. They sit there and pretend to be holier-than-thou, but they must know they are supporting taking away the right of a group of people.
Miles McPherson is a black man. How utterly horrible it is to watch someone like him call on his zombie-followers to take away the rights of a group. And I call them zombie-followers because he constantly repeats things and makes his audience say things like "Jesus!" and of course they say it. He made them say ‘male’, ‘female’ and so on.
And right now I am watching two football players laughing and having a good time showing their bloopers saying ‘Yes on 8.’ How funny it is that two black athletes are happy to take away the right of a group of people. They are just damned lucky that there were people that supported their fight to equal rights and there are still people who are fight for them to be treated equally in this still racist society. They are damned lucky.
"A confrontation between light and darkness." That is what some guy said on this. He apparently is a minister. Guess who the light is? Guess who the darkness is? I suppose you don’t need to guess.
They are sitting in a church and claiming that gay marriage is a secular issue and not a church issue! Jesus. Is anyone there aware of their surroundings when they entered a church, talked about what they thought God and Jesus wanted? Sitting in a church and it is a secular issue? Yeah, right. It would be funny except the leaders of this political rally want their followers to swallow what they say without thinking.
Well, we’ll see if their God can actually sway the voters. Fortunately, the polls are showing these people to be wrong. Imagine how disappointed these people are going to be on Nov. 5 when Prop. 8 fails. Will they believe that God wasn’t powerful enough? That He left them behind? Who knows.
All I know is that these people won’t stop. There is too much money involved here. Prop. 8 will fail (at least I hope it will fail). But the people behind Prop. 8 need to have the money keep flowing, so there will be a new push on Nov. 5. People will still send money.
Miles McPherson, the ‘minister’ at this mega-church, certainly knows the love of money. I wrote a couple of weeks ago about his so-called non-profit, where most of the money that is donated goes into his pocket and the other people who work at this non-profit. Money, mammon, is the root here. Miles McPherson has a great gig going on. He can tell people he is a minister of God’s word and they will send him money. He can tell them that society will fall because gays and lesbians can get married. They will send him money. What a great deal for Miles McPherson. Probably not such a great deal for those who think this is a minister speaking God’s word.
The only good thing about this is that it will do absolutely nothing to sway people to vote for or against Prop. 8. People who are going to vote to take away a right already given to a group will vote yes anyway. People who will vote no on 8 have already made up their minds. The only reason to have a rally like this is, once again, money.
