So, are Christians the only moral Americans? Or is it smoke & mirrors?
"Faye Dunaway as Joan Crawford in “Mommy Dearest”
Wait a minute, those Reich-wingers are always going on and on and on, like a broken record, spreading outright hatred and lies about the LGBT community to anyone that will listen. Especially if there is a microphone and a Video Camera around ever hear the term, Levirate Marriage? Seems it was common practice in the times of the Old Testament. Take a look-see at these passages, they explicitly ooze’s morality. As it turns out, not only are people like me are immoral (LGBT people.) With allot of us it’s a twofer, imagine being both gay & Liberal. I am sick to death hearing how gays are destroying our country, they shouldn’t get special rights. The “special rights” thing is particularly silly, To be treated equal and enjoy the rights of full citizenship is a CIVIL RIGHT. Not a special one. I may have to go all Joan Crawford. However, I live nowhere near, "The Most Beautiful House in Brentwood." But I may launch into Joan's infamous rant about wire hangers.
No wire hangers! What are wire hangers doing in this closet when I told you no wire hangers?! EVER!!!! I work till I'm half dead and I hear people say she's getting old! What do I get? A daughter who cares as much about a beautiful dress I give her as she cares about me. What are wire hangers doing in this closet?! Answer me! I buy you beautiful dresses and you treat 'em like some dishrag! Okay it's a partial Joan rant but I’m sure people get the idea, But I digress.
Okay back to this thing called Levirate Marriage, from my understanding the term is from the Latin word "levir," which means "brother-in-law." Again, the following passages are from the Old Testament of that book that most hard-line religious jihadist, sometimes known as The American Taliban. It cannot be stated enough, "GOD" as we all know or have at least heard this claim at least a zillion times literally wrote the sacred holly book some of them like to use to thump allot of us with. Yes "GOD" wrote the Bible. Every bit of it, at least that's what I keep hearing, this comes from Deuteronomy 25:5-10. King James Version (KJV)
5. If brethren dwell together, and one of them dies, and has no child, the wife of the dead shall not marry without unto a stranger: her husband's brother shall go in unto her, and take her to him as a wife, and perform the duty of a husband's brother unto her.
6. And it shall be, that the firstborn which she breadth shall succeed in the name of his brother which is dead, that his name be not put out of Israel.
7. And if the man likes not to take his brother's wife, then let his brother's wife go up to the gate unto the elders, and say, my husband's brother refuses’ to raise up unto his brother a name in Israel, he will not perform the duty of my husband's brother.
8. Then the elders of his city shall call him, and speak unto him: and if he stand to it, and say, I like not to take her;
9. Then shall his brother's wife come unto him in the presence of the elders, and loose his shoe from off his foot, and spit in his face, and shall answer and say, so shall it be done unto that man that will not build up his brother's house.
10. And his name shall be called in Israel, The house of him that hath his shoe loosed.
This is just WRONG and thankfully has gone the way of the Dodo Bird. It much like the aforementioned Dodo just doesn't fly. No wonder MOST of the Repiglickin Party in their heart of hearts just does not care for, or actually despise women. It's because the "GOD," most of them claim to follow. Yes sir/mam, the same "GOD" I mentioned in the third paragraph. He's the literal author of the book this nonsense is taken from.
Surely folks know what book I'm talking about, unless someone reading this has been living a under rock. Come to think about it, ALLOT of Americans may have no other options left other than living under a rock or in a cave if the greedy default derivative swapping Wall Street barons finish the attacks on those who were only trying to live the American Dream. Well turns out since he, "GOD" really doesn’t care too much for women either. He thinks they should be subservient and know their place in the home, and be a baby maker.
Willing, or not, and If she doesn't conceive does she then get stoned. And I am not talking about Cheeche & Chong kind of stoned! Also should she scrub the house spic n span clean, & cook the Head & Master of the home and her, what he orders here to cook and it better be ready when he is. Everyone knows that’s today's Women would and SHOULD NOT, I repeat SHOULD NOT stand for this kind of behavior not now. Okay it should not have been biblical law then, of now. I'm just saying. ALL women should be treated with respect in today’s society and thought of as an EQUAL.
Let me say a Powerful, Strong willed take no prisoner women of today, Is what some men need today to tame them of their of their misogynistic a-hole way of thinking and acting. These are qualities I truly admire in a woman. Powerful, Strong willed take no prisoner. If I didn't happen to be gay, Qualities like there would be something I would look for to share life with.
OH yeah not to beat a dead horse of anything. But, I have also heard people talk of this will jolly old guy that gives EVERY child in the WHOLE World toys on a certain night of the year, well if you have been nice, BAD boys and girls get a lump of coal in their stocking. Next year perhaps you will behave. Jolly old guy, isn't that an oxymoron or what? But I have a hunch that this "jolly old guy" is make believe. What do you think? Hope this was worth the read.
Thanks for your time.
