OK, this is low-hanging fruit, but on a whim I checked the American Family Association website tonight and found this gem of right-wing Christian lunacy:
It’s rare that you can actually watch the president of the United States commit a sin live and on national television.
But that’s what happened yesterday when President Obama told the nation that he is compelled to take more money from the rich.
This is a direct, public and disgraceful violation of the 10th Commandment.
The 10th Commandment, of course, flatly prohibits the sin of lust for another man’s wife or for his possessions. “You shall not covet your neighbor’s house; you shall not covet your neighbor’s wife…or anything that is your neighbor’s.”
The author, one Bryan Fischer, goes on to compare President Obama’s “sin” to that of Generals Petraeus and Allen, and to throw in the 8th commandment as well (“You shall not steal.”)
Taking money from some citizens against their will only to give it to others to whom it does not belong is not good public policy, it is theft. It is legalized plunder.
It would be comical if the AFA was a fringe organization, but it’s not. It’s pretty mainstream and influential in evangelical circles, where there is no god but Jesus, and Grover Norquist is his prophet.
And these are the same people who are deeply offended when nonbelievers ridicule, “blaspheme,” or even question their religion. But there is no way that I as an unbeliever could disgrace Christianity as effectively as its own followers do every time they whore out their Almighty God to suck the dick of the rich and powerful.
