Religionistas - The New Negroes?

I felt the need to respond to Kenneth Hutcherson's article from December 10 titled "Christians are the new Negro" published on the "WorldNetDaily" site.  In the piece, Mr. Hutcherson argues that because of "hate crime laws" and "repeated attacks by the politically correct crowd", his freedom of religion is being eroded. 

He never explicitly states what exactly he is no longer free to do because of these hate crimes laws, but one must assume that he considers violence against people because of their religion, sexual preference, or sexual identity a "right" that was his, but is no longer. 

In his  deeply twisted logic, he compares the "Jim Crow" laws of pre Civil-Rights Act America, to these new "hate crimes laws" that he feels prevents him from the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.  

I am not sure what effect he thinks the "hate crimes laws" have on his right to life, but I  guess he thinks it's essential to his liberty, and his pursuit of happiness that he be able to participate in a good 'ole fag bashing!   Apparently, violence against LGBT people is essential to Mr. Hutcherson's definition of Christianity.

Mr. Hutcherson's twisted logic is again evidenced  by his explanation of the "separation of church and state" which he argues is misunderstood by Christians - and is therefore being misused by secular society to restrict participation of the church in the state.  In other words, separation of church and state only applies to the state staying out of church business, not the church from involving itself in the state.

To illustrate how dire the situation is for "Christians" he brings up the case of Carrie Prejean who he says "lost her title simply because of her constitutional right to freedom of religion."

Yep, the winner of the Miss California pageant was highly criticized when she spoke of her faith based belief that homosexuals deserve to be discriminated against. But that fact really has little to do with why she lost her title - regardless of the lies that the anti-gay religionistas want you to believe. She lost her title simply because she would not honor her commitments as Miss California - in effect, for violating her contract which was entered into when she became a candidate in the pageant. That she's still being put forward as a Christian role model is really pretty laughable in light of the pornographic recording she made for an ex-boyfriend.

What is really twisted about Mr. Hutcherson's contention that society is discriminating against Christians and limiting their rights, is that it is precisely what religionistas have been doing to LGBT people and others who don't agree with them for millenia! In fact, the "rights" they are insisting they maintain are the influence and power to perpetuate discrimination and marginalization of LGBT people and others who don't believe as they do.

Pretty much poster-boy examples of hypocrisy!

Plastic Christians

Well the AFA is patting themselves on the back today after claiming a victory for Christ! They are no longer calling for Christians to boycott the Gap or Old Navy stores this holiday season. Why? Because the Gap is finally acknowledging the supremacy of our Lord and Savior in their advertising. Their new ad, which has changed EVERYTHING, features perfectly shaped, perfectly happy, perfectly dressed and coiffed plastic people wishing other perfectly shaped, perfectly happy, perfectly dressed and coiffed plastic people a "Merry Christmas", all the while skating (perfectly) on ice - which I am sure is perfectly frozen.

It would be enough to melt a Real True Christian's heart - if it weren't made of plastic!
