Weird Religious News – Justice Kennedy

Weird Religious News – Justice Kennedy

weird religious newsThe prevailing belief amongst Evangelicals has been the idea that they can happily ignore some rather blatantly in-you-face character failings and jump into bed with a Wolf because he will grant them the one thing their hearts truly desire – a seat or two on the Supreme Court. This week many are dancing with glee because their wet dream is within their grasp. With Justice Kennedy announcing his retirement, they envisage Trump appointing a right-wing conservative who will be the swing vote for key decisions that will deliver to them the ability to impost their religious beliefs by force upon everybody.

The problem with jumping into bed with a Wolf is that he does not see you as anything except his next meal, his motivation has always been self-serving. He will pander when it suits to gain access to the next morsel he wants to consume. The moment his motivation conflicts with theirs, he will simply turn upon them and proceed to devour without any remorse.

Their belief in him as God’s chosen hand might now appear to be granting them a sniff of some tasty fruit, but that is an illusion. This is not a road that will lead them to paradise.

The Big News Item of the week.

Just two words – Justice Kennedy …

  • Robert Jeffress declares that the retirement of Anthony Kennedy vindicates the Religious Right’s support for President Trump:

What is happening right now vindicates our decision to choose Donald Trump as president and I believe the #NeverTrump movement, still in evangelicalism, is going to be shut up forever.

  • Timothy Buchanan celebrates Kennedy’s retirement:

Approval of abortion and promotion of homosexual perversity are a repulsive stench in the nostrils of God and those of his people. These national sins may soon be eradicated.

Here are some responses to it all from those that are not religious …

What else popped up in the News cycle During the Past seven days?

Some of the Cult of Trump devotees have been trumpeting that the end-times are upon us …

Criticism of Trump is still forbidden …

  • Pat Robertson tells those who don’t like what members of the Trump administration are doing to “keep your mouth shut.”

We are still getting Red Hen fallout …

Harvesting Immigration Kids is literally a thing for these people …

Denial of basic human rights for religious reasons is still popular …

Utterly weird conspiracy claims also popped up. For some of these folks, being weird is quite normal …

“God made me do it” …

“Satan made me do it” …

Yet more Sexual abuse by those now dreaded words “Youth Pastor”. Often those interested in working with kids are way too “interested” ..

Supernatural claims…

Sadly we have another shooting and the inevitable “Thoughts and Prayers” but nothing else. Some are pushing back on that …

Finally for this week, the Inquisition is apparently highly desirable and on the wish list …

  • Theodore Shoebat says that Sen. Lisa Murkowski is a “satanic witch [who] looks like she could use a good inquisition.”

… and the real kicker here is that all of the above comes from those that claim the high moral ground over just the past 7 days.

Its not all doom and gloom

When you vote for an incompetent buffoon then eventually the consequences will reach your doorstep … or in this case … church door …
