Viva la Revolución! – Christian style

Christian Newswire, a jackpot of stupidity, ignorance, bigotry and general wackaloonery only rivaled by WingNutDaily, is calling for a "Christian Revolution" to try and block the hate-crime bill that's been so talked about lately. You know, the bill that simply makes it wrong to attack anyone just because they're different. If you attack a black man because he pushed you, it's regular assault. If you attack a black man because he's black and for no other reason, then it's a hate crime. But don't tell the loonies that – it would stop their mindless shrill tirades and drooling idiocy that's so entertaining!

... Actually, it probably wouldn't after all. Moving on ...

Below is the full press release inciting good God-fearin' Christians to amass before the U.S. Supreme Court, with my commentary in italic blue.

WASHINGTON, May 18 /Christian Newswire/ -- On Monday, May 18th, 11:00 AM, Christian leaders from across the nation will come to our nation's capital to stand for Jesus and oppose Senate "Hate Crimes" bill (S.909) at the U.S. Supreme Court.

"America will learn the hard way that you cannot make straight what God has called crooked, or tolerate what God deems intolerable, or turn moral wrongs into civil rights, and thrive as a people." Rev. Rusty Thomas, Director, Elijah Ministries Aaand ... your pitiful little rally will somehow change this?

"This bill seeks to shut down the message of hope and deliverance from the chains of homosexuality through Jesus Christ. It criminalizes Christians who reach out in the love of God to save those trapped in sexual perversion." Michael Marcavage, Director, Repent America Oh yeah, here's a good indication of how far their brains are gone. A bill that's specifically meant to end harassment and discrimination towards gays (and others), somehow "shuts down the message of hope and deliverance" of the Bible? You see, I don't think that many homosexuals really believe that reaching out to Jezus will save them from religious onslaught upon them for being gay. Just a hint.

"S.909 will make illegal every word in the Bible describing homosexual sodomy. It will legitimize sin and prepare the way for censorship of the Gospel of Christ. Our children will pay a horrible price if we do not fight now." Rev. Flip Benham, Director, Operation Save America. More utter stupidity, along with a nice serving of downright lies. A hate crimes bill will not illegalize any words in the Bible, or any other religious writing, or anything remotely of the sort. It seeks to prevent idiots and boors from targeting minorities with violence, just because they happen to be minorities. Nothing more.

A call to Christian Revolution will be made at the steps of the Supreme Court. The Declaration of Independence was unanimously signed and proclaimed by our Founding Fathers on July 4, 1776. It was a call to obey God rather than men. When our Founding Fathers declared their independence from England's King George III, they were really declaring their dependence upon Almighty God -- the God of the Bible. They pledged their lives, fortunes, and sacred honor to proclaim-God is true. ... Wow. Just ... wow. More absolute historical ignorance from the wingnuts. Don't they ever tire of being corrected over and over and over again?

On Monday, May18, 2009, 11:00 AM, we will ask American Christians to consider and pledge their allegiance to Almighty God, His Law, and His Son. We will offer a new Declaration of Dependence to be read from the steps of the Supreme Court of the United States of America. We will join that "Great cloud of witnesses," our Pilgrim Forefathers, and our Founding fathers, as we declare -- "No King but King Jesus! It is now our turn to declare our dependence upon the only One who can truly save America and our posterity -- Jesus Christ!" -- Rev. Flip Benham Whoa, hang on – are they actually saying they'll be presenting an entirely new Declaration of Independence, to try and use it to serve as the backbone of the United States in place of the current, actual one?

Are they really that incredibly insane? To think that they could just "replace" one of the most critically important and beloved documents in history, just because this group of dogmatic morons don't agree with it?

Our nation has drifted far from God. It is our privilege, our duty, and our command to proclaim this truth. "Those who forsake the law praise the wicked but those who keep the law resist them." Proverbs 28:4

What: Press Conference
When: 11:00 AM, Monday, May 18
Where: Steps of the United States Supreme Court

Looooooooony ... Hey zanies, tell me how your effort to replace the Declaration of Independence goes, m'kay?

    see, they're not upset about hate crimes legislation, they're upset about expanding existing legislation to include women and gays.

    you don't hear them complaining about current legislation that protects religions, do you?
