A Scary Scenario

Just read that some 300 evangelical pastors recently convened in Florida to learn how to adapt their preaching and outreach skills for the pursuit of political office. Their goal?

To mobilize at least 1,000 evangelical Christian pastors to seek government office in order to promote conservative and traditional biblical values!

You’ll never guess who gave the keynote address … none other than Mike Huckabee.

The training was opened with this prayer: “Lord, here we are, a nation founded for the advancement of the Christian faith in the glory of God.” (Wow! He must not have read his history books.)

While I doubt such a scenario will ever occur, as a non-believer, it scares the living sh__ out of me that the Christian majority might actually rise up and make it happen.

Can you imagine living a life where someone else dictates how you should behave? That you might actually be forced to attend church and to worship Jesus? That your personal rights and opinions would be dictated by “the church?” That abortion, women’s rights, same-sex relationships, and other human rights might be removed because they aren’t based on “biblical values?”

OMG, it makes my blood run cold.

One person commented this about the article: “If Church pastors are going to promote ‘politics-from-the-pulpit’, then let’s start a movement to place a tax on every penny they take in.” 

And I say, Amen/A-women to that!

  1. I’m no expert on US geographical politics, but from what I do know, they don’t stand much of a chance fulfilling their wish outside the southern states, which are already in the tent.

    On the positive side, this type of action will potentially backfire in wonderful ways. Give an idiot a microphone, and then sit back.

  2. “And I say, Amen/A-women to that!” I agree! And I agree with John’s comment. Let these idjits ramble. Hell, let em take over, say Vermont, and force all there to behave as they want them to or be jailed. That may wake people up to the virus that is evangelical christianity. $Amen$
