"Don't Ask Don't Tell" Repeal and Controversy, Shows us More Examples of Christian Love!

Gordon Klingenschmidt
 U.S. Naval Chaplain Gordon Klingenschmidt, is so outraged by the repeal of "DADT" that he states the following...

"Homosexual Sin Will Always Be a Stench in the Nostrils of Almighty God, an Abomination Which God Condemns and Shall Punish with Everlasting Destruction and Damnation.  Even If the Senate Had Voted 100 to 0 to Legalize Sin, They Could Not Remove God from His Throne of Judgment, before Which Every Knee Shall Bow, and Every Tongue Confess That Jesus Christ Is Lord."

The U.S. Navy chaplain is apparently not alone, with such loving Christian thoughts.  Similar sentiments are evidently shared by all of the following Christian groups...

National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference,
Teen Mania Ministries,
American Association of Christian Counselors,
Southern Baptist Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission,
American Family Association,
Family Research Council;
Liberty Counsel,
Liberty Alliance Action,
Vision America,
The Oak Initiative,
The Call to Action,
Concerned Women for America,
High Impact Leadership Coalition,
Campaign for Working Families,
Conservative Action Project,
Traditional Values Coalition,
Renewing American Leadership,
Conservative HQ, Constitution Party,
Bott Radio Network, Center for Military Readiness.

Who have all signed on to a letter from the Liberty Counsel's Matt Staver who states the following...

Matt Staver

"This action will be overturned in the next Congress!"

"This vote will prove as costly to its proponents as ObamaCare was to its advocates. We promise a full mobilization of Faith-Based Organizations, in the states of every Senator who voted for repeal of DADT against our advice. Those Senators - and the Pentagon leaders responsible for this breach of trust - should understand that they will be the object of concerted political action against them."


 So far, hundreds of different, so called, "Religious Groups" have expressed outrage at the repeal of the Military's   "Don't Ask Don't Tell" Policy. 

Including a chorus of Orthodox Rabbis who have expressed similar sentiments.

Can you imagine, All of This Hate and Intolerance in the Name of God?
Christians, regardless of denomination,  are by definition supposed to preach, and practice the teachings of Jesus Christ. 
You remember Christ, don't you? 
He was that Pacifist Jewish Rabbi from the New Testament that became known as the "Prince of Peace". 
The one who taught love thy neighbor as thyself. 
The humble man who believed in turning the other cheek, and taught us not to judge, lest we be judged.
Not to mention the time;  when that loving, tolerant and compassionate Christ came to the defense of a prostitute in the street by saying  "Let He Who Has Not Sinned Cast the First Stone".
Now I ask you, does the Hateful, Homophobic Rhetoric we've been hearing about "Don't Ask Don't Tell" represent anything remotely similar to the peaceful  teachings of Jesus Christ.

It Seems Rather Cliché at This Point, but Once Again, I Feel Compelled to Remind the Religious Right - 

Hate and Intolerance Are Not Family Values!

  1. I sometimes wonder how this God fellow gets anything done at all.
    Seriously, does he really have time to monitor peoples' genitals? Hell, keeping an eye on a slut like me along would be a full time job.
    Maybe if we'd all stop fucking God would have more time to relax and take care of the little things, like genocide, starving children and wars waged in His name.
