Murray: Government is Not God. Except When I Want It to Be.

William Murray, the fundamentalist evangelist son of Madalyn Murray O’Hair, has an organization called the Government is Not God PAC, or GINGPAC. And he’s none too happy that President Obama actually thinks gay people are human beings with equal rights.

President Barack Hussein Obama and Vice President Joe Biden spent last Thursday celebrating “gay pride” at a White House ceremony – a ceremony that included two young twin girls who are being “parented” by two lesbians.

Obama used these twins as props in his effort to maintain his “gay” political base. During the ceremony, he announced that another lesbian judge had been confirmed by the Senate to serve in a lifetime post on the federal bench. Lesbian Nitza Quinones Alejandro will serve on the federal court in Pennsylvania. She’s the first openly lesbian federal judge and the fifth one to openly homosexual serving in the federal court system.

According to Obama: “From Minnesota to Maryland, from the United States Senate to the NBA, it’s clear we’re reaching a turning point” in his goal of normalizing homosexuality in America.

In a special video on LGBT Gay Pride Month, Obama praised “gay” leaders who had “bent the arc of the moral universe towards justice.” That’s a clever way of saying they have turned morality upside down and violated God’s moral laws in pushing for the normalization of homosexual sex acts.

So remember, government is not God — except when he wants the government to enforce God’s edicts. Then it is God. Let God enforce his own “moral law.” Leave the government out of it.

    It’s better to have government do it. God goes overboard and has terrible aim.

    If God doesn’t like it let him come down and do something about it. Call me if he does. I’ll be on the couch, not worried.

    The thing that pisses me off the most is probably the scare quotes around “parented”. I know lesbian parents, and they raise their kids just the way the rest of us do. It’s not pseudo-parenting just because they’re both female.

    It took me a minute to remember where I’d seen “Government is Not God PAC” before, then I remembered it was Politifact so I looked them (him) up. Six mentions, three “Pants on Fire”, two “false”, and one “mostly false”. They really gave the “mostly false” one the benefit of the doubt at that, since it requires equating the morning after pill to abortion.

    the fifth one to openly homosexual

    Since when is “homosexual” a verb? I guess sloppy thinking just spills over onto their grammar.

  6. tubi says

    Shouldn’t he have written “Vice President Joseph Robinette Biden…” I mean, let’s be consistent-if you’re going to use Obama’s middle name, then you should use Biden’as a well.

    William Murray is a tool.

  7. shouldbeworking says

    William Murray is not a tool. Tools serve useful functions. Murray can only be used as an example of bigotry.

    That’s it. I’m seizing his computer. And removing the apostrophe/quotation mark key.

    Shorter Murray: “I’m not a evil, America-hating, atheist like my mom. I’m good, patriotic, Christian like the rest of you. Can’t you see how Christian I am? See? Please, accept me!”

    What’s the basis for your god’s laws? What’s the basis for his laws against homosexuality? The latter tends to be answered with blatant lies, circular reasoning, or assertions that humans all have an intrinsic duty to be calculating r-strategy mass breeders instead of having choices like being k-strategy lovers and nurturers or non-family villagers who directly or indirectly help raise the lovers’ children.

    Frankly, Divine Command Theory is a poor moral compass. It can be and is used to justify any random act, especially aided by the fact that there is no consensus on the existence, nature, or identity of the gods, much less any laws they would dictate. There’s no over-arching principles or purpose behind it, so there’s no reason why one thing is moral and another is immoral. It’s arbitrary. If there’s any magnetic charge at all, it’s diamagnetic, repelled against making firm judgements about good and evil unless pressured by outside secular forces, and instead attracted to being dictatorial about morally neutral trivia in the minima of the magnetic field.

    Real morality exists so that we can live together and enjoy the benefits of society.

    …“bent the arc of the moral universe towards justice.” That’s a clever way of saying they have turned morality upside down and violated God’s moral laws…

    Exactly! They’ve violated God’s moral laws and made them more just.

    Gwynnyd@5:

    Actually, it’s an adverb. He means she’s serving homosexually, Or maybe she’s serving homosexuals. Hard to tell with that word salad.

  13. Dennis N says

    There seems to be an insane amount of homogeneity amongst conservative groups. How is the GINGPAC different from Restore our Republic PAC or the Faith Family Freedom Fund? Same with Focus on the Family/Eagle Forum/Concerned Women for America etc. They all have the exact same stances on everything. There seems to be more diversity on the left where PACs are formed to focus on issues like the environment, election spending, pro-choice.

    Am I wrong here/does anyone have an explanation or different take? Are they all just in it for the grift?

    Hussein in this context is a dog whistle for nigger. He’s amplifying his whistle by also referencing VP Biden and pointedly excluding his middle name. That way even Sarah Palin will understand; but probably not Victoria Jackson. But no harm, Ms. Jackson’s already on-board thinking of the president as an uppity nigger.

  15. Chiroptera says

    Obama used these twins as props….

    As does every single politician in the US when they bring their kids and spouses onto the stage during their campaign rallies.

    @Gwynnyd:

    I noticed that, too. Plus, he split the infinitive. Shouldn’t it be “to homosexual openly”?

    So screw him. So to speak.

  17. says

    President Barack Hussein Obama and Vice President Joe Biden

    Can we make a rule that the correct WAP (Wingnut Associated Press) style format for referring to the current president and vice president together is “President Barack Hussein Obama and Vice President Joseph Robinette Biden, Jr.?” It just doesn’t look right when only one gets the full name treatment.

    Also, I did not know Joe’s middle name was Robinette. It makes it sound like you can buy him for $2999 down at the premium furniture outlet.

    I’m a little surprised that a group called Government is not God is that focused on gays. Usually that particular rhetoric is trotted out to oppose social safety nets, because if people can get help from the government they won’t need to toe the church line to get help.

    Dennis N “Am I wrong here/does anyone have an explanation or different take? Are they all just in it for the grift?”
    One man asks for a hundred dollars and walks away empty handed, but ten men each ask for ten dollars…
     
    Gvlgeologist, FCD “Plus, he split the infinitive.”
    A split infinitive? That’s the worst kind!

  20. unemployedphilosopher says

    How terrible does it make me for thinking “GINGPAC” had something to do with redheads?

  21. dan4 says

    …his “gay” political base.

    Most unnecessary use of sneer quotes ever (i.e. the writer could have just written “his homosexual political base”).
