“…“That’s why we need to get out and vote, and vote for candidates who support moral values,” he insisted. “We need someone like a Jerry Falwell to come back and resurrect the Moral Majority movement where you get people that have a moral background who are willing to come together and vote for moral issues that are important to this nation….If that would take place, we would see a great change in this country, but our country is in trouble. It’s in trouble spiritually. We’ve turned our back on God.”…”
The right absolutely detests the Reverend Jeremiah Wright for a few rather inflammatory statements he made about the United States, about God damming it. It was nasty, vile, and truly an embarrassment to Barack Obama, who rightly distanced himself from Wright. One would think, after such a thing, when so called “conservative” Christian ministers do the same thing, they would be rightly denounced.
BUT, let Franklin Graham, son of the great Billy Graham, state that America needs to be financially destroyed because Obama was elected, and it’s just fine.
“…Maybe God will have to bring our nation down to our knees—to where you just have a complete economic collapse. And maybe at that point, maybe people will again begin to call upon the name of almighty God….”
What’s the difference, pray tell?
“…Add to all this the childish, irresponsible and reprehensible acts by their business supporters who are laying off employees, imposing hiring freezes and even reducing wages and benefits – demonstrates a tantrum that is just getting started. Their cold disregard for how these faux retaliatory actions have on their employees and their families only places an exclamation point on the robotic mannerisms by Mitt Romney evidenced by his outrageous moment of greed and self-protectionism when he cancelled the credit cards of campaign workers on election night after it was pronounced dead but before it even had a chance to turn cold. I honestly have no words for that action…and it is rare when I am stunned into silence…even momentarily.
As I listen to conservative talk radio hosts and pundits rail about how there just weren’t enough white votes to counter the women, African American, Latino and liberal special interest votes it only reminds me that this is going to get ugly….”
I think it’s time for the far right to shut up, behave themselves and GROW UP! Anyone who dares say that there is a difference between what Franklin Graham is doing and what Jeremiah Wright said is lying to him/herself and everyone else.
Try Matthew 5:43-47
‘You have heard that it was said, “You shall love your neighbour and hate your enemy.” But I say to you, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, so that you may be children of your Father in heaven; for he makes his sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the righteous and on the unrighteous. For if you love those who love you, what reward do you have? Do not even the tax-collectors do the same? And if you greet only your brothers and sisters, what more are you doing than others? Do not even the Gentiles do the same?
