Jim, it takes an educated populace for democracy to work

My good friend, Jim, has, once again, just reposted something without first digging into it. He quotes from here which just summarizes from here, One News Now. Unfortunately, One News Now just gets their information second hand — from Pastor Charles Flowers. No offense here, but I’m not sure I want to take advice from the once-arrested Commandant Flowers.

Specifically, Flowers states:

“The ordinance also says that if you have at any point demonstrated a bias – without defining what a bias is or who will determine whether or not one has been exercised – that you cannot get a city contract,” he tells OneNewsNow. “Neither can any of your subcontractors [who have demonstrated a bias] sign on to the contract.”

Moreover, according to a draft of the revised policy, no one who has spoken out against homosexuality or the transgender lifestyle can run for city council or be appointed to a board. Flowers says the Arizona-based legal firm Alliance Defending Freedom has taken a look at the ordinance.

You can actually read the bill for yourself. Note, this is before the City Council now, and not passed. At no point does it say someone cannot run for city council if they are “biased.” Further, it does give religious organizations exemptions, which, by the way, is not equality in action. What is a bias? Well, that is defined as well and involved complain procedures and the what not. Note as well this provision is not just about sexual identity, but so too even to ageism and veteran status.

Come now, let us educate ourselves about such things. This bill is like dozens, if not hundreds, of others around the country which seeks to prevent discrimination. Would you really want a neo-Nazi employed by your city?

Mad Props to the Rabbi – “Bryan Fischer…is not a religious man” @BryanJFischer @theird

“The fact is that is the ultimate statement of heresy,” Rabbi Shmuley Boteach said on CNN. “This is not a religious man.”

“Let’s be clear,” Boteach said. “Not only is he [Bryan Fischer] wrong that we kicked God out of our lives, the United States and the American people are the most righteous people in the world.” (not true, JW)

“We have spent endless blood and treasure to defend complete strangers, women from being beaten up by the Taliban. Our soldiers died for those people. God is one our money. We give more charity than any nation on earth. We deserve better. I am tired of people maligning the American people and saying we deserve to suffer, we’ve kicked God out. This is the most religious country in the Western world.” (true, JW)

Not only is the Rabbi correct (mostly, not going to agree with the “most righteous people in the world” bit), but as this comes from a Rabbi, this will particularly stink Huckabee and Fischer.

The Right Wing God is a Psychopath – God just shrugged at #Sandyhook

According to Bryan Fischer, God didn’t want to save the children because he wasn’t wanted in the public schools.

“Here’s the bottom line — God is not going to go where is not wanted,” he said on his radio show today. “We kicked God out of our public school system. I think God would say to us, hey, I would be glad to protect your children but you gotta invite me back into your world first. I’m not going to go where I’m not wanted. I am a gentleman…. Back when we had prayer, the Bible, and the Ten Commandments in schools, we did not need guns.”

Go head… serve this god if you want…

Why is a man who advocates kidnapping children still on the radio?

In two separate  tweets  last night, he called for an “Underground Railroad to deliver innocent children from same-sex households.”

Wow…. I don’t understand this guy held up as a Christian.

This is sad…

Bryan Fischer for Secretary of Defense

Our military strength is a function of our spiritual strength. We can have the strongest and mightiest military in the world in terms of guns and ammunition and tanks and soldiers, but if we are not spiritually strong as a people, we can be defeated, we can and will suffer defeat. So it is absolutely critical for us who care about this nation, who care about the United States, to say “look, we have got to be spiritually strong as a people if we are going to be militarily strong.”

That’s why it is so important that we have in the military men of faith, men of Christian faith, who are in touch with God and with the spirit of God. Because when they come together to formulate battle plans, their minds are going to be quickened by the Holy Spirit of God and under his nudgings, his promptings, they’re going to be able to develop battle plans that are going to lead to victory on the field of conflict.
