Yeah! Cos God, He say, " ", er nothing.
His self appointed mouthpieces, they say, "Molest, abuse, snarl, rip, rend, hate, enslave, rewrite the dictionary, murder, oppress, profiteer, etc, etc". Yeah! The mouthpieces, they got a lot to say. All of it garbage for brutes.

Well, it's nice to have some honesty for once. Usually Christians have to do some serious weaselling on the slavery topic, but here's a guy that knows his Bible. Oh, of course he's a Republican.

There's no doubt that the scriptures are in error. Nobody has ever claimed that the constitution is infallible; that's why it has provisions to allow for amendments. In fact, it needed three amendments just to get rid of slavery and its consequences.
Even Lincoln's staunchest supporters must admit that some of his actions were unconstitutional, btw, so there's no need to harp on that point. We can debate whether all of those actions were needed, but we can't really deny that the outcomes were for the most part positive.

I think he should put his money where his mouth is. I'll let him be my slave.

What I hate about people like this is how they don't support slavery out of any moral or logical basis that we can argue about... they just support it because a book tells them to, which means there's no way to try and convince them otherwise.
I suppose there's only one solution: Mock them.
10/19/2012 4:20:50 AM
And this guy is an elected official? O_o

Mr. Bigglesworth, the Depraved Infidel
Scriptures are in error

Nowhere in the Holy Bible have I found a word of condemnation for the operation of slavery, Old or New Testament. If slavery was so bad, why didn’t Jesus, Paul or the prophets say something?
Nowhere in the Holy Bible have I found a word of condemnation for the operation of abortion, Old or New Testament. If abortion was so bad, why didn’t Jesus, Paul or the prophets say something?
This country already lionizes Wehrmacht leaders. They go by the names of Lincoln, Grant, Sherman, Sheridan, Custer, etc. These Marxists not only destroyed the Constitution[…]
OK, before anyone should listen to you, please define for us the words I made bold. We are waiting.

State Rep Loy Mauch (R-Arkansas), you are evil. You should be impeached (is that applicable?). Kindly DIAF. If you ever get the impression you have any right to pass moral judgement on anyone, just remember: You don't because you are a monster.

Who agrees with me that all decent people in the South should move North, and watch from a safe distance as the old South secedes, then disintegrates?
10/19/2012 4:55:11 AM
So, you're saying slavery is a good thing? And you're an elected official?
This is why I weep for our country. It's extremely hard to move forward toward a great society when we have Republicans.
10/19/2012 4:55:22 AM
It's clear that the Republican Party of 1860 has been stood on its head.
10/19/2012 5:02:05 AM
Argh, I just registered that this is again an elected politician. How?
I have to quote myself from the thread about that other despicable being, Fuqua (wasn’t he also from Arkansas?):
How? How can you be in the public eye (as a politician is automatically) and make statements like these and nobody in the press or otherwise is calling you out for it?
I just don’t understand it. Can an American please explain to me how this can happen? I mean, the political system in Germany is quite messed up in some parts, but I can only imagine the shitstorm that would happen if some politician here would make public statements like this. This goes also for all the other fundy politicians quoted on this site.
(For the record: I have no intend to bash the American system or people. I honestly just want to understand how the system and the people that seem to thrive in it can be so different in two western democracies.)

"Nowhere in the Holy Bible have I found a word of condemnation for the operation of slavery, Old or New Testament. If slavery was so bad, why didn’t Jesus, Paul or the prophets say something?"
Because Jesus Paul and the prophets were opposed to the freedoms guaranteed in the constitution.
Assuming these people even existed.
10/19/2012 5:50:29 AM
...and that is what is wrong with theocracy and your religion in general.
You people are sick in the head, and it is scary, especially given the degree of Christian privilege that lets things like this slide under the radar. Even if most people find your nonsense disturbing, the outrage and fear induced by it is nonexistent compared to that which would ensue if a Muslim or atheist said the exact same thing.
10/19/2012 6:03:44 AM
I think you've gotten that Lincoln one backwards...
10/19/2012 6:15:13 AM
Progress. Now repeat it back to me.
10/19/2012 6:15:59 AM
You're right, there is nothing against slavery in the Bible - because the first Christians saw no problem with it. Humanity does though.
Lincoln's Presidency: March 4, 1861 – April 15, 1865
First publishing of Das Kapital (in German): 1867
American Civil War: April 12, 1861 – May 9, 1865
Call him a radical, a progressive, a liberal or an egalitarian - but he wasn't a Marxist - because Marxism didn't even exist back then.

"Either these depraved infidels or the Constitution and Scriptures are in error".
If you believe the Scriptures were written by God through men, then sure, they'd have to be infallible. But the Constitution? It is utterly bewildering how these lunatics have started believing that the US Constitution is some sort of religious text, and that the founding fathers are modern-day saints. (Especially given what we know about the religious beliefs of Jefferson & Co).

Wow, so now the Republicans are officially advocating for the return of slavery. How long before they start suggesting witch-burnings?

"I’m more persuaded by the word of God."
Yes, but apparently you're quite the simpleton so that isn't saying much.
10/19/2012 6:43:33 AM
Nowhere in the Holy Bible have I found a word of condemnation for the operation of slavery, Old or New Testament.
Which is why the Bible utterly fails as a moral guide.
If slavery was so bad, why didn’t Jesus, Paul or the prophets say something?
Because they weren't the moral paragons they've been made out to be.
This country already lionizes Wehrmacht leaders. They go by the names of Lincoln, Grant, Sherman, Sheridan, Custer, etc.
Godwin is puking right now. Seriously, comparing Abraham Lincoln, of all people, to the Nazis?! Who's going to be called a Nazi next, Henry Jones?!
These Marxists not only destroyed the Constitution they were sworn to uphold, but apostatized the word of God.
First off, make up your mind. Ate they Nazis or Marxists? Second, the Constitution was changed, not destroyed. It was always meant to be subject to change, because the Founders knew that is wasn't perfect, that they weren't perfect, and that somebody would come up with better ways to run a government further down the line. Absolute, unchanging laws, even started with the best of intentions, will inevitably lead to tyranny. And they didn't win their independence from one tyranny just to start another one.
Either these depraved infidels or the Constitution and Scriptures are in error. I’m more persuaded by the word of God.
Or, far more likely, just the Scriptures are in error. If you don't think so, why don't you prove your faith by contracting leprosy and curing it with an animal sacrifice?
10/19/2012 6:46:30 AM
Dear God please say that Rep. does not stand for "representative". Why the hell are so many of our elected officials fucking psychopaths?
10/19/2012 6:55:27 AM
Because, in this particular instance, a Representative only has to appeal to voters in a small district of a state. Candidates who would totally scare off moderate voters in a gubernatorial or senatorial election can easily win a seat in Congress or a State Legislature.
