Nutty radical pastor says anti gun protests are a sign of impending doom, and young people are to blame. Despite the fact that the very leader of the Magic Book was a non violent pacifist, Evangelicals sure do love their guns.
Their leader, Starman Jesus, allowed himself to be killed by the Government, and even forgave his killers. He coined the phrase “turn the other cheek.” He was a fisherman, I’m pretty sure he’d approve of hunting for food, but Semiautomatic weapons? Large capacity magazines? Violent overthrow of government? Not so much. Gun policy is just more proof that radical Christians don’t actually follow Jesus.
This week in Religious Nutters features Pastor Kevin Swansen who cites the fact that kids are leading the anti gun movement as proof that America is under the Judgement of God. Guess he forgot the multiple Bible tales admonishing adults who don’t listen to the wisdom of children. Instead he goes all old school quoting Isaiah. (Isaiah is a dark book filled with doom. The reason it’s being focused on right now is it features a bumbling immoral leader, Cyrus, chosen by God-Dude, who the nutters think is just like God Leader Trump.)
Swanson quotes, “As for my people, children are their oppressors and women shall rule over them. Oh my people, those who lead you cause you to err and destroy the way of your paths.” Then Swansen says America is “not going well,” because children ignore the God Dude Commandment to listen to their parents. He says that this is, of course, due to the rebellious 1960s. He also rails against communism and STDs and simultaneously blames millennials and 60s hippies for all of America’s problems. These “Christians” will go awfully far to justify ammosexuality.
I’m just going to raise my hand here and point out a few very very important Bible commandments are being total ignored by US Americans, and posit these might be the reasons that America is not doing so well. We wear clothing made of blended fibers such as a linen wool mix, and we plant mixed rows of crops. “Ye shall keep my statutes. Thou shalt not let thy cattle gender with a diverse kind: thou shalt not sow thy field with mingled seed: neither shall a garment mingled of linen and woollen come upon thee." Leviticus 19:19
