Who Needs Information?

People keep wanting to make a big deal out of comments made by Rev. Right. Right, is the pastor of Obamas church whose sermons have been in the news for some fiery comments about 9-11 and racism. If we are going to judge candidates by the company they keep, lets judge all of them by the same standard.
Rev. John Hagee gave his endorsement to John McCain recently. McCain, told reporters he was very pleased to have it.
This is Rev. John Hagee's take on Katrina.

All hurricanes are acts of God, because God controls the heavens. I believe that New Orleans had a level of sin that was offensive to God, and they were recipients of the judgment of God for that.The newspaper carried the story in our local area, that was not carried nationally, that there was to be a homosexual parade there on the Monday that the Katrina came. And the promise of that parade was that it would was going to reach a level of sexuality never demonstrated before in any of the other gay pride parades.So I believe that the judgment of God is a very real thing. I know there are people who demur from that, but I believe that the Bible teaches that when you violate the law of God, that God brings punishment sometimes before the Day of Judgment, and I believe that the Hurricane Katrina was, in fact, the judgment of God against the city of New Orleans.

By the way, McCain was visiting New Orleans yesterday and called the governments response to the destruction inadequate. He also said he would not have flown over the damage as Bush did-he would of landed. Where was McCain the day Katrina struck? He was having a birthday cake with George Bush.

I totally agree with you, don’t even go there if you’re not prepared to go there with everyone else.

As for the religious comments…. Nothing pisses me off more than a holier than thou, my-god-loves-me-more-than-you, type of attitude… Um, if you’re going to start passing judgment on the big G’s behalf, then better make sure that you’ve got Act of God insurance, because there is NO religion out that doesn’t have some congregation members breaking a few choice commandments…

I'm still sitting at my desk thinking about the comments of that priest...

I don't know why religion has that affect on me. I guess that I should add that to my list-o-fears... religion. Nothing scarier than a group of people THINKING that they've got divine protection and they can, without written permission, go out and scoff/judge/kill anyone who has differing beliefs... that's just scary.

AND pisses me off.

I think that the answer to what is going on their minds is nothing. According to them, God is in complete control. You love him or he damns you to eternal fire in the pit's of hell.
it's sorta like an abusive relationship where the wife is scared to leave and stays with the black eyes with the husband cause, "He loves me!"
Not to say that everyone whose religious is crazy. Most of them are merely wrong.

"Most of them are merely wrong..."


Shhh! It's almost a secret... in a past life (ten years ago) I was religious. As in, VERY. But I got over it. I'm a happier person now.
