Maybe we should hang the Ten Commandments everywhere

So many Christians seem to forget what they are, and they need a reminder. For instance, while many Christians are under the impression that one of the commandments is, "Thou shalt not butt-fuck," in fact this is not so. However, and this may shock many out there, one of the commandments is, "Neither shalt thou bear false witness against thy neighbor."

I am reminded of this because I got an email from a supposed Christian organization American Family Organization (I subscribe so I have my pulse on what is offensive to Christians--apparently two men holding hands in public is a far greater threat to our moral fortitude than torturing and killing Muslims. Good to know.) today that is full of false witness against the city of Philadelphia. In this letter, they claim that freedom of speech and religion protects assault and abuse, as long as they are done in the name of Jesus and against gay people.

When they tried to speak, they were surrounded by a group of radical homosexual activists dubbed the Pink Angels. A videotape of the incident shows the Pink Angels interfering with the Christians’ movement on the street, holding up large pink symbols of angels to cover up the Christians' messages and blowing high pitched whistles to drown out their preaching.

Rather than arrest the homosexual activists and allow the Christians to exercise their First Amendment rights, the Philadelphia police arrested and jailed the Christians!

Homosexual activists thinking they have First Amendment rights! Of course they were cruising for a beatdown.

What were these fine young Christian men charged with? Reading the Bible in public? No, apparently the city is under the impression that they did something far more serious.

They were charged with eight crimes, including three felonies: possession of instruments of crime (a bullhorn), ethnic intimidation (saying that homosexuality is a sin), and inciting a riot (reading from the Bible some passages relating to homosexuality) despite the fact that no riot occurred.

Here's pictures of these guys not rioting some more at The Dark Window.

The paranoid right has flocked around this case. I had to sort throught a bunch of articles on Google from World Net and the like that pretty much claim that first you have laws against trolling for gays to bash and next you lock people up for owning Bibles before I found a single article from a newspaper about the incident. Here's one article from a more reliable source, The Philadelphia Inquirer.

Fahling said a video of the Oct. 10 confrontation showed Marcavage speaking through a bullhorn while he and his supporters were being shouted down by irate gay activists.

City officials said the video did not show the start of the confrontation, when they said Marcavage tried to interrupt a performance with his antigay preaching and then disobeyed a police order to move to the perimeter of the Outfest to avoid the potential for violence.

Damn them! They saw through our selective editing of the video. Who would have thought that judges would be so clever?

XGW has some interesting insight on this anti-gay group Repent America. Their site is a darling example of the inclusiveness that Christ preached about in his lifetime with two buttons to enter--one for Christians and one for not Christians. Being fair-minded, I pressed the not-Christian button and was greeted with this:

Are you good enough to go to Heaven?

My guess is no. They have the Ten Commandments on this page, too, so they must have noticed that homosexuality isn't one of the biggies. Ack, details.

I clicked over to the Christian button, since I'm going to hell anyway, and found it decorated with wonderful, Christ-like photos of aborted fetuses and the like. Their membership is mostly young men, and it's just so irresistable to wonder if maybe they wouldn't be so damn tense if they got laid once in awhile. They also have a bunch of pictures in the photo gallery of happy couples getting married in San Francisco. I suppose these pictures are supposed to generate a disgust reaction, but mostly I find myself happy for the couples. I imagine that if I was lonely, though, I would have quite a bit of envy mixed in with anger while looking at these pictures. I'm just sayin'.

Like you, Amanda, I keep tabs on the Christian right. It's like keeping up with those weird cousins whom you find appalling, but whom you still love as members of your family.

The obsession with homosexuality is bewildering and sad.

"apparently two men holding hands in public is a far greater threat to our moral fortitude than torturing and killing Muslims. Good to know."

Apparently good Christians get outraged over homosexuality but not prison rape. This applies to white prisoners in American jails. It's not just Muslim prisoners whose basic human rights are flouted on a daily basis. It's the rights of nearly everyone in any of America's jails. If butt-fucking happens between two white color professionals in the privacy of their own home then it is a terrible sin and must be stopped. If butt-fucking happens in a prison, it is just punishment for whatever crime the person did to end up there. Or so the thinking goes.

TANGENT: Why is it that the Paulines always want to post the 10 Commandments, but never Jesus' two commandments?

And why are they obsessed with a few fleeting references that may (depending on how they are translated) be speaking against homosexual behavior, but they never seem to have read the Sermon on the Mount?

No, no. Perhaps if they forget they're Christians, then they'll stop shoving their bigoted, intolerant, homophobic, anti-progressive, misogynist, and fascist views down our throats, and stop violating seperation of Church and State. Just my opinion.

Nicely put. Wouldn't surprise me in the least if BushCo tried to have the language of the First Amendment changed to say exactly that.

Great post, BTW.

Are you good enough to go to Heaven?Let's see...(looks at checklist)...not white, not male, not married, not a virgin...nope. Thank goodness. Can you imagine going to these people's idea of heaven? I'd have to hang out with Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld George Bush and Dennis fucking Miller FOR ALL ETERNITY.

Actually, if you knew anything about Christianity, you would know that being good has no result on entrance into Heaven.

Although, I guess if you wanted to educate yourself, you would have by now.

If you want to accuse all Christians on the actions of some Christians, then can I accuse all non-Christians on the actions of some non-Christians.

Sorry, Darian. It's not us giving Christians a bad name. Not these days.

The Christian Right is doing that job all on their own.

If you don't like the name they're giving you, why don't you start speaking up?

I know a great many decent Christians. Why are more of you objecting to the things these vile people are saying in your name?
