It’s Best to Lie! It’s Biblical!


Coach Dave is teachin’ and preachin’ – about lying. Like lying for Jesus, lying for Jehovah is right good too.

Religious Right activist Dave Daubenmire said that Roy Moore has no obligation to tell the truth regarding multiple allegations that he pursued sexual relationships with teenage girls when he was in his 30s and that, in fact, it is better for him to lie about it if doing so will help to advance the kingdom of God.

Daubenmire, who has been an ardent Moore supporter for years and even interviewed Moore on his program back in 2013, likened Moore’s efforts to become a U.S. senator from Alabama to using misdirection in a football game, employing subterfuge during a military battle or hiding Jews from the Nazis, saying that deception and dishonesty in such endeavors is acceptable because doing so furthers a greater good.

Lying through your teeth about being a skeevy asshole with a taste for teenagers is not the same as strategy, sportsball or military, and it’s certainly not the same as hiding Jews from Nazis. The finely fucked up morals of a christian, right there. (Yeah, yeah, #notallchristians, but you all still aren’t standing up against these fanatical asses.)

“When I hear people say, ‘Well, Judge Moore is not worthy of the office if he’s lying about what he did,’ I want to grab ’em and I want to slap ’em upside the stinking head,” Daubenmire said. “Judge Moore is trying to infiltrate an ungodly system and the stakes in this campaign are so great for the cause of Christ and Judge Moore is being lambasted by the holier-than-thou Christians who think [the Bible] says we can never lie.”

Golly, such language! Tsk. Infiltrate? He’s running for senate, not trying to pass a super secret seal test or anything. Any idiot can run for the senate. You’d think there’d be requirements or something, but no. (You have to be 30 years old, been a citizen for at least nine years, and live in the state you wish to represent, that’s it. That would be why so many lying idiots.)

“It’s best to lie if it advances the kingdom of God,” Daubenmire stated. “There, I said it.”

Yes, you did, and thanks, Coach Dave, for having the spine to admit that, unlike most christians, who believe firmly in lying, but always deny that.

Via RWW, there’s video.

    I think it makes more sense (within the context of everything else he’s said over the years) if you assume that what he meant by ‘deception serving the greater good’ was: telling Jews they’ll be safe hiding in his basement, waiting for them to fall asleep, then calling in the SS. That would put him right in line with the sort of thing a lot of “good Christians” did.

    My great-grandfather was a chaplain in the US Army during WWII, and wound up serving as the protestant chaplain for the accused at the Nuremberg Trials (he was fluent in German, and had often served as a prison chaplain in the ‘States). The local German Lutheran minister for the prison tried to buddy up to him, essentially claiming he had no idea what the Nazis were about. My great-grandfather told him he was despicable liar, and refused to have anything further to do with German pastor.

    I don’t think my great-grandfather would have much cared for the coach, either. Nazis would love coach’s hat, though.

    Interesting… a lot of these hidden things are coming out. Like that Xtians think it’s OK to lie. They pretty much always have. For example Utah (home of the Mormons) is considered the “fraud capital of the world” because the Saints apparently don’t mind lying to each other… or to Gentiles (all the rest of us) of course.

    But now, hearing someone come right out and admit it, when it’s been kept hidden behind clever word play for so long, wow.

    And of course, Moore just lost. HAHAHAHAHAHAHA. There you go, Xtian liars!
