Politicus ^ | 12/21/13 | Keith Brekhus

Posted on 12/21/2013 6:14:55 PM PST by madprof98

In Salt Lake City, in the shadow of the Mormon Church headquarters, dozens of same-sex couples married in the wake of Friday’s District Court ruling lifting the state’s ban on gay marriage. Included among the couples getting married was a Utah State Senator and his partner. State Senator and Democratic Party Chairman Jim Dabakis married his partner, Stephen Justeson, Friday afternoon.

I thought it customary that when a decision of a controversial nature was being handed down that the justice would normally stay his decision pending appeal.

Why was it not done here?

They’ll be divorced in a year.

From what I’ve read gays don’t rush to marry in big numbers once they have the choice.

Dabakis will certainly find a few boys for satisfaction outside the bonds of marriage. Isn’t that SOP for queers?

RE :”Dabakis will certainly find a few boys for satisfaction outside the bonds of marriage. Isn’t that SOP for queers?”

An argument a Catholic here (obviously a lib) made to me years ago was that gays only go after boys because we wont let them marry, basically its that pent up frustration.

She was referencing Priests.

Now gay marriage is the law here, approved by Maryland voters(not me).

The judge in this case was an Obama appointment.

With that, perhaps a more balanced approach than what you suggest, would be to impeach this judge and all other Obama judicial appointments.

....and my theory is proved true yet again.

The conservative movement can't possibly get any weaker and is on the verge of collapse.

If gay marriage can happen in Utah of all places, then there is quite literally nothing that the liberals can't accomplish.

The GOP and the conservative movement needs to radically change its game plan.

We can start by calling liberals racists at every opportunity. It worked for them against us.

Sentiments like that are exactly why Liberals are royally kicking our asses. You quote scripture, they laugh and call you racist. They've been doing it relentlessly for decades.

That's how the conservative movement has been labeled as "Bible thumping racists" and Liberals are the "tolerant intellectuals."

They've been wildly successful. They control everything now: the government, the entire media, Hollywood, the entire education system, the business world, several branches of the Christian religion, countless churches.....everything.

Wake up.

By the way quoting scripture means nothing when you don’t live it.

Show people that the bible is alive and walking around in the streets, and that people are getting blessed crazily by God as a result — then they will care!

I don't quote scripture. Quoting scripture to non-believing Liberals is absurd and pathetic. Liberals have contempt for Christianity and its values.

Show people that the bible is alive and walking around in the streets, and that people are getting blessed crazily by God as a result — then they will care!

No they won't. How do you plan to show people that the Bible is alive? I've said for several years now that if Satan himself ascended from Hell and ran for office as a Democrat, he'd get at least half the vote.

I'm a Christian and a believer. I'm telling you that Liberal ridicule and mockery towards Christians and their values has been so wildly successful that Christianity itself has been rendered irrelevant in American politics and culture.

Time to change tactics.

Not this one.



Genesis 13:13
Now the men of Sodom were wicked and were sinning greatly against the LORD.

Genesis 18:20-21
20. Then the LORD said, "The outcry against Sodom and Gomorrah is so great and
their sin so grievous
21. that I will go down and see if what they have done is as bad as the outcry that has reached me. If not, I will know."

Genesis 19:4-7
4. Before they had gone to bed, all the men
from every part of the city of Sodom--both young and old--surrounded the house.
5. They called to Lot, "Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us so that we can have sex with them
."
6. Lot went outside to meet them and shut the door behind him
7. and said, "No, my friends. Don't do this wicked thing.

Psalms 12:8 The wicked freely strut about when what is vile is honored among men.

Doonesbury Cartoon for Feb/08/2013

Isaiah 3:9 The look on their faces testifies against them; they parade their sin like Sodom; they do not hide it. Woe to them! They have brought disaster upon themselves.

2 Peter 2:13b Their idea of pleasure is to carouse in broad daylight. They are blots and blemishes, reveling in their pleasures while they feast with you.


Ezekiel 16:49-50
49. "`Now this was the sin of your sister Sodom: She and her daughters were arrogant, overfed and unconcerned; they did not help the poor and needy.
50. They were haughty and did detestable things before me. Therefore I did away with them as you have seen.



2 Peter 2

1. But there were also false prophets among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you. They will secretly introduce destructive heresies, even denying the sovereign Lord who bought them--bringing swift destruction on themselves.
2. Many will follow their shameful ways and will bring the way of truth into disrepute.
3. In their greed these teachers will exploit you with stories they have made up. Their condemnation has long been hanging over them, and their destruction has not been sleeping.
4. For if God did not spare angels when they sinned, but sent them to hell, putting them into gloomy dungeons to be held for judgment;
5. if he did not spare the ancient world when he brought the flood on its ungodly people, but protected Noah, a preacher of righteousness, and seven others;
6. if he condemned the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah by burning them to ashes, and made them an example of what is going to happen to the ungodly;
7. and if he rescued Lot, a righteous man, who was distressed by the filthy lives of lawless men
8. (for that righteous man, living among them day after day, was tormented in his righteous soul by the lawless deeds he saw and heard)--
9. if this is so, then the Lord knows how to rescue godly men from trials and to hold the unrighteous for the day of judgment, while continuing their punishment.
10. This is especially true of those who follow the corrupt desire of the sinful nature and despise authority. Bold and arrogant, these men are not afraid to slander celestial beings;
11. yet even angels, although they are stronger and more powerful, do not bring slanderous accusations against such beings in the presence of the Lord.
12. But these men blaspheme in matters they do not understand. They are like brute beasts, creatures of instinct, born only to be caught and destroyed, and like beasts they too will perish.
13. They will be paid back with harm for the harm they have done.
Their idea of pleasure is to carouse in broad daylight. They are blots and blemishes, reveling in their pleasures while they feast with you.



But there IS hope!!!

1 Corinthians 6:9-11

9. Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived:
Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders
10. nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.
11. And that is what some of you were. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.


If you could NOT change, you would be in most pitiful shape...

I think we ARE awake; but what would you suggest we DO about the Left?

For starters:

Start calling liberals, as a group and individually, racists.

It's their greatest fear and it's a wildly successful strategy. They've been doing it to us for decades. Use their tactics against them. When talking to liberals and about liberals, a sentence shouldn't leave our mouths without containing the word "racist."

What else do we have? Debating a venomous liberal fiend on the merits of the Constitution? That doesn't work, hasn't worked, and will never work. We have to start demonizing them and destroying a few prominent liberal leaders the same way they do to our leaders.

Example: Dan Quayle. He's been out of public life for 25 years and they still make fun of that man.

Are there any liberal leaders out there that have been destroyed and marginalized to such a level? And Quayle is just one example.

The entire conservative movement needs a radical change in its methods. It needs to start using Alinsky-style tactics against the libs. We're getting our asses kicked and have been for years.

But that would be a LIE - not a good foundation to build a strategy upon.

This is NOT a 'political battle; but a SPIRITUAL one.

It's too bad that we lose SO many 'conservatives' at this point; but THEY are the ones that are helping the Libs, though ignorantly, at this point.

'We' do NOT vote for THEIR leaders anyway!

And their side would think that anything we call them would be a badge of honor!


We have the diagnosis from the Doctor.

Will we take the medicine?


 

 

2 Chronicles 7:14

If my people, who are called by my name,
shall humble themselves,
and pray, and seek my face,
and turn from their wicked ways; ,

then will I hear from heaven,
and will forgive their sin,
and will heal their land.

I watched with glee while your kings and queens
fought for ten decades for the gods they made.
I shouted out, "Who killed the Kennedys?"
when after all it was you and me.

Let me please introduce myself
I'm a man of wealth and taste
And I laid traps for troubadours
Who get killed before they reach Bombay.

Pleased to meet you
Hope you guessed my name.
But what's puzzling you
is the nature of my game

. . .

Just as every cop is a criminal
And all the sinners saints
As heads is tails
Just call me 'lucifer'
'Cause I'm in need of some restraint. . .
