Christopaths


The phrase "utterly depraved and utterly predictable" leaps To mind.

From AL.com
53 pastors sign letter of support for Roy Moore
Anyone still feigning shock at the malignant depths to which America's bible-thumping conservative evangelical Christopaths* will automatically sink in order to defend their profoundly anti-Christian cult has not been paying attention in class.


For the umpteenth time, we cannot endure permanently half-Fox and half-free.

We will become all one thing, or all the other.


*From me, eleven years ago:
Pity the Poor Christopath 

This is what they were promised thirty years ago.

And this

is who and what they got.

Because as their vision was utterly despicable, so the results were utterly predictable.

They got played by hucksters and liars and criminals who danced them up to the top of the mountain and promised them the Kingdoms of the Earth, then razored out their pockets and booted them out into space. They got punked on a truly epic scale, and worst of all, everybody in the known Universe but them saw it coming like a St. Patrick's Day parade down Michigan Avenue at noon.

No wonder they're super ooper duper cranky these days.

So here, as a public service, is a short tutorial on how to console your Christopath friends and acquaintances --



-- in this, the looming political midnight of their tiny, hateful souls.

Behold, a Tip Jar!

Can we PLEASE now acknowledge in the primetime public square what these "people of faith" have only ever really believed in is Theocratic White Supremacy?

And as bad a creepy, tossed out of the mall/YMCA, teenage-girl chasing pervert as Roy Moore was (is - and a fucking DA at the time, for Christ sake!), lets not forget the good old grifting that makes him a true Evangelical Republican. From 2007-2012 he was to be paid $180K per year as a "part time" salary from a "charity" called the Foundation for Moral Law. When they couldn't squeeze enough donations to pay Roy Moore, he demanded - and still owns to this day - 50% of an historic building the foundation owned.

Whenever I see pictures of that idiot riding a horse (its Alabama, not Wyoming, posuer) my thought bubble says "... and the horse he rode in on."

I've been calling it 'Christo-fascism'. I'm learning.

What these guys are doing is following up on a many-centuries-long tradition: Christianity. If you don't like the company you keep, perhaps you should stop keeping it rather than going all No True Scotsman. The highest bar you can set for inclusion in Christianity is the Nicene Creed, which does not do anything to prohibit abusers of this type. Please stop gaslighting the rest of us with this garbage.

Outside of close family members, the next largest group of pedophiles and pederasts are religious "leaders" of all sorts, as is clearly evidenced by the RC "Church," the "Church" of the LDS, and by Talibangelicals in these here United States.

While it's incredibly puke-making to witness these grifting conMAN (mostly all male but not always) scourges on humanity line up to do reach arounds for perverted nasty raping sh*ts like Roy Moore, it's certainly no d*mn surprise. They are ALL IN ON IT, and they ALL AGREE with it, because THEY ALL DO IT. And they firmly believe that "GOD" BLESSES THEM FOR RAPING WOMEN And KIDS. It is their bounden "right" as WHITE SUPREMACIST MEN.

THIS is one big part of what they're fighting tooth and nail about: their bounden "right" to do whatever the f*ck they wanna do with women and kids, up to and including raping them routinely, abusing them in any other sort of way, up through all sorts of sadomasochistic torture crap.

Behold the "leaders" of the GOP. This isn't "Trumpism." This IS the Republican Party as it is today, as it always has been for decades, and as they want it to continue ad nauseum.

Skeevy conniving perverted sicko disgusting deplorable *sshole creeps of the highest order is being kind.

There is that which exists below the ideals of a religion.

Then there is that which exists above the zealotry bar.

It is in between these two where "cults" do not exist.

If anyone needs advice in the determination of perimeters and boundaries
where they "believe" they reside or traveling toward.

The advice and information (answers) are there.
Seek and you will find.

But to question might be a sin of the belief indulged that blurs ones reflection.

*
And what do you benefit if you gain the whole world but lose your own soul?


But what about the benefits gained?

Niemöller is perhaps best remembered for the quotation:

First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Socialist.

Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Trade Unionist.

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.

Or in Roy Moore's case, they came for sex with your child.

You're a gem, Robt.

The Judge disqualified himself when he flouted the law of the land. (And besides, there's a New Testament in town, Conservatives.)

Pedophilia seems to be a way of life among some zealots in Christianity and Islam -- until you're so overt that you get yourself banned from the mall because that, as well, is against the law of the land.

This is what happens when religion is mixed with politics. Too many of us are afraid, vulnerable. Hurt by those in authority, who make it unsafe for women and children.

Not that there's any lack of depravity among pastors, but in this case, the letter appears to be a quasi-forgery. It was actually written in August, before the allegations came out, and recently reposted by Moore's wife with some new verbiage added (and with the pastors' signatures retained) to make it look like they voiced their support after the allegations. Several signatories have complained.

There's still plenty of weirdness to go around, though, as evidenced by 37% of Alabama Evangelicals saying they're more likely to vote for Moore since the accusations. Who knew that sexual assault had such vote-getting potential?
