Stupid Christian Pet Tricks: Blaming Technology for Our Own Sins

Have a problem getting closer to God? Blame it on Facebook, Twitter, and Myspace. Don’t let that human responsibility and human choice thing get to you.  Find a scapegoat to blame.  Having a four-way affair, with your spouse, your office assistant and his spouse, it’s Facebook’s fault. Obviously.

Thank you Reverend Cedric Miller, for teaching the world a valuable lesson in this oh so dangerous world called the interwebs and BookedFace.  I am sure Christianity could use another hypocritical Christian going around preaching law & order legalism while scape-goating the latest technological fad all in the name of avoiding preaching repentance.  Speaking for the Church universal, we appreciate that; thank you.

I side with the ever vigilant yet ever-so-slightly wrong Joel on Social Networking; it is important for churches to reach out to the world in all possible avenues.  Technology is not the problem. We are.

So say we all.

Stupid Christian Pet Tricks: Pacifism Is for Sissies

Real (Fascist) Men of Genius proudly presents, God Really Wants You to Murder Those Folks and Reward You For Being a Killer Guy.

Bryan Fischer of the American Family Association, says that in order to fight manly wars, we must reward people with medals for killing enemies rather than saving human life (So much for that sanctity of life stuff).  Not only does he abuse the Christus Victor atonement theology to desecrate the Cross of Christ, he continues to confuse (in US American conservative evangelical fashion) the value of Jesus’s sacrifice (the Son of God) with mere mortals.  Does not the Gospel and tradition teach Jesus’ uniqueness in terms of his life and sacrifice, and that there is nothing anyone can do to reach His equality with God? I do not know about you, but Bryan Fischer. you are a heretic. Period.

By the way, I heard bears are Satanic. What say ye?

Glenn Beck Accuses Jewish Prophets of being communists, fascists, and progressives!

Although the name of this blog is entitled Political Jesus, I normally do not bother with pinhead pundits, but I felt like I had to expose the idiocy of Glenn Beck’s recent attack on the Hebrew Bible.

Beat your ploughshares into swords,
and your pruning-hooks into spears;
let the weakling say, ‘I am a warrior.’ – Joel 3:10 (NRSV)

He shall judge between the nations,
and shall arbitrate for many peoples;
they shall beat their swords into ploughshares,
and their spears into pruning-hooks;
nation shall not lift up sword against nation,
neither shall they learn war any more. – Isaiah 2:4 (NRSV)

He shall judge between many peoples,
and shall arbitrate between strong nations far away;
they shall beat their swords into ploughshares,
and their spears into pruning-hooks;
nation shall not lift up sword against nation,
neither shall they learn war any more; – Micah 4:3 (NRSV)

Playing off the ignorance of the American public of the First Testament, Beck, in the video below, at about a minute 3:25, states that the idea that Swords will be turned into ploughshares is a communist idea from the USSR. Seriously? Am I taking crazy pills here? Beck is capitalizing off of the American church’s lack of interest and knowledge of the Hebrew Bible, particularly, the Prophetic tradition. This is indeed disturbing and must be reversed. Mike Fox agrees.

Truth and Peace,
Rod
