moral majority

A liberal Christian takes back moral values.

When you cause most of the rest of the world to hate a country that was once the most loved country in the world, and act like it doesn't matter what others think of us, only what God thinks of you, you have done something immoral.

When you use hatred of homosexuals as a wedge issue to turn out record numbers of evangelical voters, and use the Constitution as a tool of discrimination, you are doing something immoral.

When you favor the death penalty, and yet claim to be a follower of Jesus, who said an eye for an eye was the old way, not the way of the kingdom, you are doing something immoral.

When you dismantle countless environmental laws designed to protect the earth which is God's gift to us all, so that the corporations that bought you and paid for your favors will make higher profits while our children breathe dirty air and live in a toxic world, you have done something immoral. The earth belongs to the Lord, not Halliburton.

Preach it, Dr Robin Meyers. Although I'm merely a Catholic-tinged agnostic, I'm always pleased to see someone reclaiming the liberal ideals of Christianity from the horrible clutches of bigoted fundamentalist fuckwits.

Me too! I think if I actually heard the speech being made I'd have been standing up and cheering about half way through. Nothing like some good old righteous anger to get me going!

Good to see the moderates speaking up for themselves. I always think a lot of trouble is caused by people with reasonable opinions assuming that because the wackos are a minority there's no need to tell them to shut up.

Sorry, edit that: "... assuming that wackos are a minority so there's no need..."

I need a coffee before I start typing :)
