The Defenders Video

I just saw this funny (but not so funny) video about those Christians that claim to follow the Bible when they are against marriage.  It might be funny, but as the woman on the video says, ‘majority rules.’ 

This is for all the ex-gays out there (like DL Foster) who pretend to be straight by demonizing the glbt population.  This is also for all those divorced Christians who think they are somehow better than the glbt community, but yet they go directly against the word of God when they get a divorce whenever they feel like it and then pretend to be holier-than-thou.  How many straight marriages would last if they actually followed their Bible?  Not many—especially if you have ‘Christians’ like this woman in red in the video in charge…Enjoy!

    It is a funny video as you say but, scary as well because there are groups in this country who want to place this type of rule in place. If all these so called Christians truely believe that the bible is the non errant word of god then we need to erect gates at the eastern limit of our cities so we can stone not just those who do not follow the law to its letter but to stone all these disobediant children. It has always amazed me that a group of people think that the laws as handed down by Moses were meant to govern the whole world. The laws of Moses (remember that the laws of Moses not the laws of G-d) were intended for the hodge poge group of people who followed him out of Egypt. The bible is very clear that these laws were not meant for any orther group than these people. I can only fall back on one of my favorite founding fathers who had this to say about this type of christianity. What he said then still resounds today. "On the dogmas of religion, as distinguished from moral principles, all mankind, from the beginning of the world to this day, have been quarreling, fighting, burning and torturing one another, for abstractions unintelligible to themselves and to all others, and absolutely beyond the comprehension of the human mind.” Thomas Jefferson quoteWhile I firmly believe in a G-d I do not accept nor condone all the supersticions that are attributed to him by man made doctrines.

    you\’re falling right back into the trap of attacking their religious values again. Their beliefs (weird and incomprehensible as they may be to you and me) are still their beliefs. I mean, if you want to REALLY read what the Bible says about marriage you have only to go to the Apostle Paul who says people shouldn\’t marry at all..they should remain celibate…like him—that is what God REALLY wants of people."Now to the unmarried and the widows I say: It is good for them to stay unmarried, as I am.But if they cannot control themselves, they should marry, for it is better to marry than to burn with passion." And then he throws in this about divorce:"To the married I give this command (not I, but the Lord): A wife must not separate from her husband.But if she does, she must remain unmarried or else be reconciled to her husband. And a husband must not divorce his wife. To the rest I say this (I, not the Lord): If any brother has a wife who is not a believer and she is willing to live with him, he must not divorce her. And if a woman has a husband who is not a believer and he is willing to live with her, she must not divorce him. For the unbelieving husband has been sanctified through his wife, and the unbelieving wife has been sanctified through her believing husband. Otherwise your children would be unclean, but as it is, they are holy."1 Corinthians 7: 8-14Now we learn TWO things from this" 1. Marriage is a tacky substitutue for celibacy (at least in the eyes of the Apostle to the Gentiles) and 2. Not EVERYTHING you read in the Bible is THE WORD OF THE LORD. Paul himself makes this clear.But so what? Logic is not going to convert the Religious Fundamentalist to sanity—their brains are so eroded by what passes for THINKING in fundamentalist circles that they are INCAPABLE of understanding you—they will only attack you as being an emissary of Satan trying to undermine the Faith!Leave the Bible OUT of it. I\’m TELLING you! Don\’t even try to play in THEIR arena. Stay in YOURS…the civil arena and the rights of the minority irrespective of any religious matters.

    Hey Justin and Cass,I made the mistake of wading deep into fundamentalist territory the past two days and this post was the result of that frustration of having my marriage compared to pedophilia–by DL Foster, the ex-gay gay witchhunter and a divorced woman. Frustrating as it is, these people need a dose of reality every oncei-n-a-while. And I do love what Paul has to say about marriage (or not getting married in the first place!).

  4. Cassie says:

    a dose of reality, huh? They don\’t even HEAR you, my son. To them you are an emissary of Satan and nothing you (or any other member of our community) may say about the Bible will affect them It is well known that the Devil is quite happy to quote scripture for his own purposes—did he not even try it on Jesus in the Wilderness?So they just tune us out—except for those comments they can twist to make us look like we are attacking all Christians and all persons of faith.As to divorce and all that they will admit it is a sin (most of them) but that would not mean they should condone and legalize the sin of same-sex marriages. Two wrongs (as THEY would see it) wouldn\’t make anything right.The most telling thing you can say to any of these Fundamentalists is to remind them that the ONLY person of whom we have record that ever received personal assurance that he was going to heaven was a convicted thief and a life-long sinner. His name (according to tradition) was Dismas (or Dysmas) and you can read about him in the Gospel of Luke Chapter 23: 39-43

    Hey Cass,I rather like the image of being an \’emissary of Satan\’! Do I get to wear a red cloak too? All joking aside, I know what you mean. I just hope that one day one of them will change their minds. It is always possible…

  6. Cassie says:

    Yes anything is possible. Point is: you don\’t need for any of THEM to change their minds. You just need make it impossible for them to scare the "not-quite-so-Fundamentalist" voter into supporting THEIR bigoted and hate-motivated position. For THIS reason—leave the religious side of the argument alone and stick to the SECULAR one by showing that this attitude of intolerance that claims that a group\’s civil rights can be removed by a VOTE threatens the freedom and the rights of EVERY minority group…not just gays and lesbians…we\’re just the CURRENT target. But if this policy of "voting on who gets what rights" can be used to target ANYONE. There are enough people out there who will know the truth of THAT danger that you can get rid of Proposition 8 by a pretty fair sized majority.Leave the Fundamentalists to wither and die on the vine…you don\’t need them. You just need to show the real THREAT this Proposition (and, by implication those who support it) pose to ALL free-thinking Americans.
