Christao408 did a blog here about all the anti-mosque conservatives pissing on the bill of rights like protecting the religious freedoms of muslims makes you some kind of terrorist, and this was my response, which I thought blog-worthy:
There’s hypocrisy on both sides, but on the right there seems to be a greater tendency to appeal to authority, be it scriptural or constitutional, and denounce anyone who does not bow to that authority as wicked, while then immediately spitting on that authority or ignoring it gleefully whenever they disagree with it. Like pastors that quote leviticus 20:13 to say that homosexuality is an abomination, then chop off and disregard literally the other half of the sentence which calls for the execution of gay men. How can you edit something while proclaiming it as an absolute divine authority we must all follow?
As jon stewart pointed out too, all of these conservatives who are rallying to strip americans of their citizenship if one parent was an illegal alien, and repeal the 13th ammendment to do so, are the same people who say the other 6 days of the week that the constitution is this flawless doctrine directly from god that us mere mortals can’t understand or possibly hope to improve upon.
It’s just the bullshit of the moment. Like fox news denouncing people as “how dare you criticize a president in a time of war!” and then when a democrat gets elected it becomes “how dare you not criticize the president in a time of war!”.
It was never genuine, it never is. It’s just spin and nonsense and bullshit. And if the fire and brimstone preachers were railing against things like dishonesty and hypocrisy, I could get behind that in a big way. But they’re railing against the f-word and boys kissing each other and tv programs they don’t like instead.
