Breitbart.com Incites Hatred Against Minister of Obama’s Easter Service

They’re being oppressed again
Wingnuts • Views: 27,603

OK, so what’s the big right wing fake outrage today? Oh, there it is — at breitbart.com, of course, where they’re inciting hatred against the minister of a church attended by the Obama family who dared to criticize the religious right. First, the Washington Post report for the full context of the minister’s statement: Obama Attends Easter Service; Minister Criticizes ‘Captains of the Religious Right’.

With Obama in the pews, Leon took a shot at political conservatives, arguing from the pulpit that some conservative positions are holding people back.

Quoting from John 20:1-18, Leon said in the same way that Jesus told Mary Magdalene not to hold on to him, it is time for conservatives to stop holding on to what he considers outdated stances in matters of race, gender equality, homosexuals and immigrants.

“It drives me crazy when the captains of the religious right are always calling us back . . . for blacks to be back in the back of the bus . . . for women to be back in the kitchen . . . for immigrants to be back on their side of the border,” Leon said.

An accurate summary of right wing religious positions, which means the right wing shall now fly into a rage. Breitbart hack Joel Pollak throws out the red meat: OBAMA’S EASTER SERVICE: PASTOR ATTACKS ‘CAPTAINS OF THE RELIGIOUS RIGHT’!!!

The Post article notes that the Easter sermon targeted conservatives as racists, sexists and xenophobes…

Actually, that’s not what the “Post article notes” at all, it’s the patented Pollak spin, intended to incite the audience into another frenzied session of hate; and of course, the commenters respond again like robots, with more than 1200 crazy rants so far.

I subscribe to the One Commie, One Bullet creed.

[…]

fits in P E R F E C T with this d i c k t a t o r obama and his filthy band of marxist maoist muslim SCUM

[…]

Always keep in mind that Hussein Obama and his neo-marxist cabal are waging an economic jihad against the citizens and the several states.

The guy is a dyed-in-the-wool communist and a domestic enemy of the Constitution of the United States.

[…]

He is showing us why only a ‘natural born citizen’ should be POTUS.

Et cetera, et cetera. Feel that good ol’ love from the religious right. Every single comment thread at breitbart.com is like this; it’s a lunatic asylum.

The Ideological and Theological Philosophy of Erick Erickson, Data-Dumped Rapidly in Response to DOMA Case

Thanks to Roy Edroso for pointing out, in his dense examination of conservative blogger reactions to the Supreme Court hearing arguments over DOMA and Prop 8, that Erick Erickson had a remarkable series of posts as he melted down over the possibility that some gay people somewhere else would marry each other.* Roy had a roughly a billion other entertaining reactions, but Erickson’s were extensive, so I thought I’d touch on them here, because they really paint a picture of an entire worldview. Sure, it’s an unintelligible, paranoid, inconsistent, but self-serving worldview, but hey, he has one.

He started with a piece claiming that religious freedom and legal gay marriage are incompatible. How can this be, you may ask, for many churches believe in gay marriage and would like to perform them legally? And how can this be, when it’s been long established that churches don’t have to marry anyone—such as divorced people—that they don’t want to marry? Well, you need to heavily tweak your definition of “religious freedom”.

Already we have seen florists, bakers, and photographers suffer because they have refused to go along with the cultural shift toward gay marriage. There will be more.

By “attacked”, he means “heavily criticized”. So, apparently Erickson believes that religious freedom means that other people are not allowed to hold, much less express, a critical opinion of anything a person calls their “faith”. The problem with this is that religions criticize each other. In fact, in this very same post, Erickson writes this:

The Christian Left would prefer to view Matthew 19 as a passage on divorce, which is discussed. But they willfully ignore Christ’s definition of what a marriage is — one man and one woman united to become one.

By his own definition, he violated the religious freedom of the Christian Left by criticizing their views. Clearly, this is a conundrum, one that can only be solved by making a fundamentalist, conservative definition of Christianity the official state religion—whose freedom must be preserved by censoring all criticism of it—and declaring everyone else heretics. This is “religious freedom”, right wing style.

While GOP Elites Soften On Gay Marriage, Local Leaders Haven’t Gotten The Message

As poll after poll shows a growing number of Americans favoring marriage equality, Republican leaders on the national stage have slowly signaled a willingness to moderate their long-held opposition.

Rob Portman (R-OH) last month became the first Republican senator to endorse same-sex marriage. Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus said last week that while the party still opposes gay nuptials, the GOP doesn’t “need to act like Old Testament heretics.” And freshman Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) on Sunday said that a Republican presidential nominee who backs marriage equality is “inevitable.”

While national Republicans have softened on gay marriage, state and local leaders don’t seem to have gotten the message. Here are a few recent examples

Life-sized, half-naked Zombie ex-girlfriend target bleeds when shot

The life-sized bleeding Zombie ex-girlfriend mannequin retails for $99, but a paper version is available for only $1.

From the comments ZMB has published on their website, “The Ex” is a hit with customers.

“I love that this target looks like Britney Spears and it bleeds when I shot it,” one customer wrote.

“The dark haired one looks like my bitch ex-wife, who I HATE! I can’t wait to shoot her face off for taking my shit,” another customer told the company.

Sure am glad we don’t have mental health screening for gun owners.

I have mixed feeling about this. Though in no way is the racist and violent response from the breitbarts appropriate.

However, I wish all religious leaders…would keep politics away from the pulpit and other religious events.
I didn’t like it that Ben Carson mixed politics at the National Prayer breakfast, and I dont like it when progressive pastors do it either.

When it is outside of any religious venue, of course they are free to say whatever they want.
I dont think this guy did the “left” any favors. We support separation of church and state or we dont.

Irasema Salcido’s heart raced when she pulled the letter from a stack of mail in her Capitol Hill office. She tore open the envelope.

The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation is pleased to award the Cesar Chavez Public Charter Schools a grant in the amount of $1,570,000… .

Salcido rocketed into her staff’s offices to share the news. She had landed what thousands of other nonprofit organizations are chasing: a Gates grant. One of the world’s largest charitable foundations, the most important sponsor of efforts to improve U.S. schools after the government, believed in her seven-year-old educational experiment.

Even if you think you can avoid google, good luck - whether it’s a Droid phone, Picasa, search engines embedded in any number of websites, blogger, Chrome, etc., that’s Google’s reach. Microsoft is just as invasive, whether it’s the OS you’re working on, or the browsers, or Bing.

Deace on O’Reilly’s Marriage Remarks: ‘That Is a Hanging Offense’

Conservative talk show host Steve Deace is not happy with Bill O’Reilly’s seeming reversal on marriage equality, telling Religious Right activist Bob Vander Plaats that O’Reilly is “betraying” his own viewers and is essentially a “charlatan” and a “fraud.”

While discussing the Supreme Court’s handling of the marriage cases with Vander Plaats, who warned that the court could “set off a constitutional crisis,” Deace said that O’Reilly is a traitor to his conservative base: “you stab them in the back, throw them under the bus and use the enemy’s own language against them. To me that’s a hanging offense; that is a hanging offense.”

You didn’t want non-fiction, but I’ll go ahead and recommend “Going Clear: Scientology, Hollywood, & The Prison Of Belief” by Lawrence Wright. He’s the same author who wrote “The Looming Tower” which is probably the best account of the history of Al Qaeda leading up to 9/11 that has yet been written. It’s compelling, and he writes like a novelist anyway so he has no trouble holding your attention.

Got thru all the Wheel of Time series that Jordan wrote and I lost interest. The last two were written after his death. I might have read the 13th and what was to be the final. Guess they can’t let go of the franchise.

Sanderson wrote the last 3 books, and they’re done. They wrapped it up in the last book which came out in January.

It was not continued by his son. Brandon Sanderson is not related to Robert Jordan. He did however say the reason he became a writer was because of Robert Jordan.

Ah I thought I had heard his son was the one who was going to continue it. I still haven’t finished it.

The last non-fiction I listened to was White House Burning. Depressing as it is, I wish I could say I had my fill. The economic theory market seems to be calling me.

I also like Terry Brooks and the Shannara series.

The Dark Sword trilogy by Margaret Weiss and Tracy Hickman

The Dark Tower series by Stephen King.

Also re-listened to Perdido Street Station by China Meiville. God, this guy can write. It was better the second time around.

The Curse of Chalion by Lois McMaster Bujold is a wonderful fantasy book. Anything by her is great, really, but that one especially. The guy doing the audiobook is fantastic. I just finished a re-listen yesterday.

have yet to hear an explanation of the syncretist marxo-muslim creed

what alchemy would required for that???

None, it’s just a game I like to call Epithet Darts.

Take one average every day blind Republican partisan, and get him/her going on Obama or pretty much any political figure they’re not fond of. Watch as they proceed to play Epithet Darts, just throwing out a constant stream of epithets to see which ones stick. Note that it is not required for those epithets to make any sense in combination with each other, because they are not actual combinations — each one is an individual dart and they are simply being salvo-fired to be efficient.

As an aside: I will never, ever understand the phenomenon of right wing political discourse largely consisting of grown adults making — or attempting to make, at any rate — puns and other wordplay that even gradeschool children would groan at, intending to use them as serious, honest insults/epithets. I don’t want to believe that these people have minds that operate on the level of preteen-or-younger children, but the evidence they keep supplying me with makes it harder and harder to deny that belief.

Yes, I think that is in my queue somewhere.

When Jordan realized he was dying, he tried to complete the WOT himself, but said there was no way he could wrap up everything in one book. He was trying to make it into 2 books when he passed away.

His estate already had Sanderson in mind, as Sanderson had written a paper analyzing Robert Jordan’s writing style and had studied him for years. They brought him on board and gave him access to Jordan’s materials, some parts for the books completely written, other parts nothing more than a few sentences or an outline.

Between the estate and publishers, they decided to put in as much of Jordan’s story in as possible, including material he had cut to condense the finale into 2 books. This pushed the final books to three, but completed the story with as much detail as Jordan originally had wanted.

I’m betting Breitbart is going to rename itself ‘Truth’ in the future.

Wait until they find out about how Bill Gates spends his money

He is also an atheist.

WHAT NOW, SEARCH ENGINE PROTESTERS??

We’ve got Conservapedia and the Conservative Bible — why not “Conservasearch”?

Erick Erickson was once a member of my city council. He pulled the same highly partisan shit here that he’s doing now. He deems himself an authority on all things and thinks everyone should listen to him. After discovering that the citizens here didn’t like the little stunt he pulled when he called for the firing of all of our police officers if they joined the Teamsters Union, he decided not to run for reelection. Some republicans here were also glad to see him leave the city council. I guess we got happy a little too soon because he then showed up on CNN with a larger platform to spread his illogical nonsense. A loudmouth should know he’s gone too far when even some members of his own party thinks he’s too divisive, but not Erickson. He knows that, in certain groups, crazy sells well, and he’s prepared to peddle any kind of kookiness as long as it adds to his bank account. He’s not stupid. He’s cunning like a sly fox. He identified his target audience years ago, and he’s been milking them for all they’re worth ever since.

Just a noob, but I’d suggest one or all of Natsuo Kirino’s crime novels. They’re funny and disturbing.
Her most recent work to be translated looks more like a mythological-allegorical thing so I’ve stayed away, but “Out,” “Grotesque,” and “Real World” are all great.

I know I’m way too late to the party on this story, but just in case anyone’s interested,

Obama and his family have attended St. John’s many times during his first term. Former President George W. Bush, attended the church regularly as well. Leon gave the invocation at Bush’s 2005 Inaugural and his church, nicknamed the “church of the presidents,” has had every president since James Madison attend its services, though not all have been members.

I bet you didn’t hear that on Fox “News” today.
