Guess who threatens Judeo-Christian values?


Who am I kidding? Of Course you know who threatens Judeo-Christians values and surprise, surprise, it’s not the Mormon heretic. It’s the Christian. And one of the reasons those vaunted ideals are under fire from Obama is because of healthcare:

NBC– Paul Ryan gave a firm warning to a group of evangelical Christians Sunday night: President Barack Obama’s policies jeopardize Judeo-Christian values.

“And in these critical battleground states, it’s going to make the big difference as to whether or not people are worried about where America’s headed, worried about whether we’re going to reassert our Constitution, or whether or not we’re going to go down the path the president has put us on,” Ryan said speaking on a Faith and Freedom Coalition tele-townhall with thousands of voters across the country. He continued, “It’s a dangerous path, it’s a path that grows government, restricts freedom and liberty, and compromises those values, those Judeo-Christian, western-civilization values that made us such a great and exceptional nation in the first place.”

A Ryan campaign spokesman told NBC News about Ryan’s comments: “He was talking about issues like religious liberty and ObamaCare – topics he has mentioned frequently during the campaign.”

The American Taliban’s ability to twist the meaning of words is truly a sight to behold. Giving women the option of coverage for lady parts is tyranny, allowing their bosses to deprive them of that option is freedom. You may take our lives, but you will never take our freeeedom!

    This reads to me like a zenophobic racially-loaded dog whistle: “and compromises those values, those Judeo-Christian, western-civilization values that made us such a great and exceptional nation in the first place”

    Matthew 25:31 “When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, he will sit on his glorious throne. 32 All the nations will be gathered before him, and he will separate the people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. 33 He will put the sheep on his right and the goats on his left.

    34 “Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. 35 For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, 36 I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’

    37 “Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? 38 When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? 39 When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’

    40 “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’

    41 “Then he will say to those on his left, ‘Depart from me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels. 42 For I was hungry and you gave me nothing to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me nothing to drink, 43 I was a stranger and you did not invite me in, I needed clothes and you did not clothe me, I was sick and in prison and you did not look after me.’

    44 “They also will answer, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or needing clothes or sick or in prison, and did not help you?’

    45 “He will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me.’

    46 “Then they will go away to eternal punishment, but the righteous to eternal life.”

    47 Except if they were behind in their insurance co-pays…in which case, fuck ‘em.

    Even if Obama publicly endorsed all the right wing christian nut job dominionist preachers they still couldn’t abide him being the president because:
    Well he’s got muzzlum daddy, a funny name and most of all he’s a nayger. And that just ain’t right! No sir! …just ain’t right. Ma bring me a beer…

    If Paul Ryan was to look at Israel and the ‘large’ government health care sceheme there, presumably he would condemn that state for infringing Judeo values – Christian values are excluded by definition I suppose.

    @4. Reginald Selkirk :

    I remember how Jesus ranted against ObamaCare during his sermon on the mount.

    You do? Yikes – and to think I thought *I* was getting old! ;-)
