Oh, it’s Coach Dave again, this time sobbing and wailing into his bible (or beer), over the horrible crime committed against Roy Moore. Goodness, people didn’t elect him! The worst persecution ever, you know.
“We had an underbelly that was exposed to us last night,” he said. “If you guys don’t think that we’re in trouble—remember when I was telling you that it’s about the destruction of white Christian male? Do you remember that? This whole thing is all playing out that very thing, the destruction of the white Christian male. And the left, the God-haters, the devil has had tremendous influence in the lives of Christian believers, there is no other way to explain that mess that happened down in Alabama.”
Oh now, there are plenty of ways to explain what happened in Alabama. We owe a great deal to all the people of colour who faced tremendous bigotry and oppression and still got their vote out. There aren’t enough thanks for that one. Some white christians managed to find their conscience, and decided that being a liar and a skeevy ephebophile* was not a good thing. Doug Jones is a white male too, Dave.
*To all the people using pedophile in regard to Moore: please, fucking stop it. It’s inaccurate, and it does no good to go the hysterical and wrong route conservachristians are so fond of running down. Take the time to be right, please.
Daubenmire blasted Christians who refused to support Moore simply because he “maybe molested a girl 40 years ago” but were willing to vote for a Democrat “who wants to kill babies.”
So, maybe molesting a girl doesn’t matter? At all? Goodness, you sure are clarifying those christian morals, Dave. Democrats do not want to kill babies, and they don’t in fact kill babies. They do support women, which I realize is a crime in christianity.
“When they weighed those two things in the balance,” he said, “evangelicals said, ‘My faith will not allow me to elect the man that lies or molested a child, instead I’m going to elect this guy here who wants to kill babies.’ Now, folks, I don’t care who you are, that is a delusion right there, that is a strong delusion and it is evidence that we do not love the truth.”
They weighed those two things in the balance, and did the right thing. You don’t need any religious faith at all to shun a man who unapologetically slavered over teenagers. Most people would turn away from such a person, and not see fit to reward such a person. Doug Jones has not killed any babies. Ever. He does support women, and all people who can get pregnant, and stands up for their rights as full human beings, who have the right to bodily autonomy. I like people who recognize that I am indeed a person, a person who should be able to make my own medical decisions in privacy. Given how much you christians always have your nose shoved in other peoples’ crotches, I guess it’s no surprise that you don’t see an adult drooling over teenagers as a big deal.
Thankfully, the christian immorality and delusional thinking did not win the day in Alabama. It was too close for comfort, and all those people supporting Moore should scrub all the filth out of their minds and off their so-called consciences, then perhaps they could actually think. When it comes to delusional thinking, there’s nothing quite like christian thought:
ETA: Oh look, we can add Lance Wallnau to the pile of immoral assholes moaning over Moore.
Wallnau warned the “nut jobs” at the Republican National Committee not to start discounting the power and importance of evangelical voters because of this race, saying that if just a few thousands more Christians had shown up to vote for Moore, the result would have been totally different. But unfortunately, Wallnau said, too many Christians were unable to discern the correct choice “between giving the devil a free pass or working with a flawed sinner, or somebody who was a sinner who is now a saint who doesn’t have the sense to know to cosmetically present themselves to the electorate.”
Erm, what? I hate word salad. Hate to tell you Lance, but lots of christians did show up to vote – black women. Black women, unlike their white counterparts, showed up in strength: and women too were overwhelmingly against Moore (58% of all women, 35% of white women, and 98% of black women). (Via Mano Singham.) Thankfully, all those women of colour had sense and good morals.
“Poor Bannon,” Wallnau said later as he encouraged the Breitbart executive and Moore booster not to be discouraged by Moore’s loss and prayed that he would be “covered in grace and peace and consolation.”
Wallnau said that conservative Christians must stand by Bannon as he “storms the barricades of the establishment status quo” and be prepared to fight along side of him.
:Laughs: You do know Bannon is catholic, right? Since when do evangelicals have anything good to say about catholics? Hypocritical does not even begin to describe you fuckwits.
“We’re going to take on the establishment,” he said. “They’re going to feel the heat people, yes they are … You screwed up, Mitch. Your days are numbered there, Mr. Mitch McConnell. You’re going down, because, after all, we represent 25 million of us out there. We’re not always organized, we are not always coherently motivated, but once we get our crosshairs fixed, bam! When we show up, watch out.”
Taking on the establishment? :falls over laughing: Oh please, you are not the counterculture. 25 million is a minority. You aren’t all that, and as you continue to endorse lying, ignoring sexual assault and a myriad of other unethical, immoral behaviour, I think you’re going to find more people finding their spine and turning away from you all. You’re in favour of fascism. You don’t have a problem with nazis. You hold up a shallow sociopath as a ‘great man of god’. Eeeuch.
