Ever notice how news about God often comes in a series? Kind of like HBO. You know, you won't hear anything about God for awhile, and then all of a sudden, he makes his presence known in several rapid fire earthly stories. Seems odd...but then we're talkin' about God here, not your regular Joe. His ways are not our ways and our ways are not.......
Let's start with the video TPM has up of House Representative, John Shimkus, (R-IL). Shimkus is seeking the chairmanship of the Energy and Commerce Committee, which deals with climate policy, global warming....among other issues.
The first couple minutes are the crux of the issue...
Some Republicans want to issue subpoenas over the "fraud" of global warming science. Shimkus from 2009....
"I want to start with Genesis 8, verses 21 and 22. 'Never again will I curse the ground because of man, even though every inclination of his heart is evil from childhood. Never again will I destroy all living creatures as I have done. As long as the earth endures, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night will never cease.' " ....
Shimkus: "The earth will end only when God declares it is time to be over. Man will not destroy this earth. Earth will not be destroyed by a flood."
Couple things here.....first, notice how fond the Creator is of his created. I mean seriously....."every inclination of his heart is evil from childhood"?? Second, obviously the Divine One has a genocidal streak to go along with his more, you know, creative side. God comes right out and takes credit for drowning virtually all life in a flood.
How about some sympathy for this genocidal God? You come home, the kids are loud and they're fighting, occasionally breaking things....they're always naughty....and you're at the end of your patience. So you just drown the rugrats.......and then tell the cops you'll never do it again, drown kids that is. You might just burn kids later on in some big fire you start.....but drowning? no more of that.
Seems to me that actively drowning almost all life in a flood would fall under the category of "evil." But hey, this is God we're talking about. The God of John Shimkus.
Shimkus is confident in a proven-genocidal God, especially when that God says he will not destroy earth with ANOTHER flood. And there-freaking-fore, global warming is a hoax.
See any apparent disconnects in that logic? Any wildeyed jumping to conclusions? Me either.
If Shimkus is chosen to Chair Energy.....just think of the Serious leadership he will bring to that Committee.
The Pope wrote a book. Seems like all fallible humans are writing them these days, so why not the human who is the closest to John Shimkus' God? Benedict's new book is humbly titled, "Light of the World: The Pope, the Church, and the Sign of the Times."
Perhaps you've heard about one of the more controversial Pope-book quotes. The one where Benedict allows for a few humans, those whose hearts are inclined to evil from childhood, male prostitutes,....to use those evil condoms. In so doing, these wretched souls would be taking moral responsibility for not spreading AIDS, a disease which Benedict said last year was made worse by.....the use of condoms.
This is the first time that God, through his representative on earth, has given the divine thumbs up on condom use. A first for God. Kind of a big deal. However, the God who changeth not, is going to ease in to this condom-approval stuff slowly.
Pope Benedict, who actively supervised the coverup of many of his pedophile employees' crimes against minors, wants to link condom use with...morality. At first, when I read what Benedict said in his new book, I thought he might be referring to some of his own employees when he mentioned "male prostitutes." But that would be too shrill, even for Benedict.
It is not moral, according to the pontiff, for married heterosexuals to use condoms for contraceptive purposes. That isn't moral. I suppose it would be moral for a married heterosexual male to use condoms with his wife if the husband was also a male prostitute, but if he wasn't, no can use.
It is not moral for unmarried heterosexuals, or homosexuals, to use condoms to prevent conception or the spread of disease (unless one of the unmarrieds is, of course, a male prostitute).....because unmarried people who have sex have evil inclinations in their hearts from childhood.....and it is only through marriage that the evil inclination to have sex can be purged of it's wickedness before God. Homosexuals, according to the pontiff, cannot be moral unless they are abstinent,......or.....unless they are working as male prostitutes.
Which means that a young male, (not a prostitute), would be acting immorally if he had sex with a female outside of wedlock......and even though the young male thinks he's being morally responsible to his partner by using a pregnancy-obstructing barrier....that thinking, too, is immoral.
I'm glad that God doesn't make news all of the time.....you know, like Sister Sarah does. When God makes news....it's simply astonishing.
