How Do People Get Sucked Into Believing

Do you find you when you watch a movie you identify with the winning side and so want to see the bad guys get theirs? I do this all the time.

In Terminator 1 I didn't want Arnold as the terminator to win, but Sarah Connor because she was on the winning side and the underdog. I could see that right off. With Terminator 2 I wanted Arnold to win because now he had become the underdog good guy.

In the Bible you see this same conflict of good versus evil and who wouldn't want the good guys to win and be also one of the good guys. The Bible is extremely black and white and shows story after story you win if you are on God's team. As in the Terminator the bad guys can turn and be good after a bit of reprogramming.

The stories of the Old Testament are just that. You can be a bad guy but if you get reprogrammed you can become the underdog good guy. So many underdogs in the Bible including the all powerful, all knowing Jesus, quite the mix eh? Powerful like a terminator. The New Testament is like Terminator II.

The northern kingdom Israel didn't worship Jehovah exclusively and as bad guys they were captured by Assyria and taken there. The southern kingdom mostly worshiped God exclusively. Hezekiah was the shining example, the good guy's guy. But ultimately they became bad guys and the Babylonians captured them and took them to Babylon. But then in exile they became the good guys again and yeah!, they won. If you worship God exclusively you win, otherwise you lose and all this happens in the final minutes of the movie of life, well for us death because bible stories just don't happen anymore. So odd when we could now record it all.

I find mostly when I read the Bible, let's now call it a obvious piece of literature, even now I root for the obvious good guys. The myths were built up to make you want to be one of the good guys. If you read it with a skeptics mind you quickly see there really isn't any good guys, they are killing, raping, robbing just like the bad guys. AND THE THINGS ALL CHRISTIANS MISS is Jehovah-Jesus is just like the bad guys, no different. You might call them even human like (snicker)

Gays Created By The Devil

Gays created by the Devil says US Catholic Church Policy Advisor
From Irish Central.

This week The Boston Pilot, the nations oldest Catholic newspaper, published a column by a senior official suggesting the devil probably makes people gay.

In the column Daniel Avila, who is a Massachussetts attorney and (take a breath here) Policy Advisor for Marriage and Family of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops' Subcommittee for the Promotion and Defense of Marriage, bluntly says that 'the scientific evidence of how same-sex attraction most likely may be created provides a credible basis for a spiritual explanation that indicts the devil.'

So if you're gay the phrase the devil made you do it has a whole new meaning this week. We are all made in God's image (except for the gays, obviously).

Elucidating, Avila described homosexuality as a 'natural disaster' caused by Satan invading the wombs of mothers of LGBT children.

It happens all the time apparently.

In case you missed his point, or the implications, Avila spells it out for you: '…whenever natural causes disturb otherwise typical biological development, leading to the personally unchosen beginnings of same-sex attraction, the ultimate responsibility, on a theological level, is and should be imputed to the evil one, not God.'

God would never make anyone gay because if He did then the persecution of gay people (whom God created gay, after all) would be a sin. We simply can't have that. So gay people are the devil's work and you are free to oppress them in any and every way you can.

But telling a mother that the Devil entered her womb and made her child gay is new, even by Catholic standards. Until now we've just had to endure the idiotic sophistry that asked us to love the sinner but hate the sin (that pretzel theology that seeks to oppress whilst appearing compassionate).

But this week Avila, who calls himself 'the bishops' marriage guy,' has shown us the true face of the USCCB, who have refused to condemn his words. This is the man Americas Catholic bishops look to for advice about the LGBT community. He sounds deranged.

Avila's article caused a firestorm and it was eventually pulled with an apology from its publisher, The Boston Pilot. But you have to acknowledge that same source published it without objection in the first place.

Sometimes the mask slips and you get to see what those in positions of real authority actually think about gay people. This week that happened and the silence is deafening.

Late Night With Jeebus

Wouldn't this be great if we had a show called America's Funny Home Jeebus Videos? This is close enough.
