Gay Lutheran Pastor Defrocked For Having Partner
Posted 08 February 2007 - 04:10 PM
Interesting is the apparent fact that both his congregation and the Church board that followed official bigotry policy still say they support him.
The Fundies, of course, stirred up all of this anti-gay shit in the last 15 years or so, ever since the Repugnicans announced their merger with the Jeebus industry in 1992.
Now what we see is that ordinary, peace-loving citizens who are not driven by a desperate need to condemn other people are rejecting the teachings of right-wing Jeebustarian professionals.
It's obvious that Lutherans give a great deal of thought to the issue of gay pastors having sex. I wonder if they worry just as much about heterosexual pastors having sex?

Crazy homos are one thing, and Injuns running with scissors is another thing, but imagine being chased by a crazy homo Injun running with scissors. That's scary enough for a teen movie!

Lutherans (watered down catholics) are too anal anyway. He should slide over to the Methodists and spew his bullshit over there. They'll accept anybody. Even crazy homos and Injuns.
Didn't I hear that Bush is a Methodist? I guess you're tight, then WC, they'll accept anyone!
Ah, here's a link I just found:
In a exceptional display of candor, the United Methodist News Service distanced the denomination from Dubya in the wake of the election debacle and went so far as to even point out his political views are more akin to those of the staunch conservative Southern Baptist Convention.
I guess they don't like him much, either.

The occupant in the white house is insane. (I can't bear to call him my president.)
I've been thinking about our GCL lately, on a psychological slant. You have so many factors at play here... greed, megalomania, lust for power, religious mania, social intolerance... boy, its really hard to figure out which is the gas can and which is the match. But I wonder now about the Christian part of GCL. Seems to me that ever since November 7, he and the God Squad haven't been too cozy.
No. I've come to the conclusion that Gorgeous George is about two things...money and power, in alternating order depending on his mood. The religion is a sham. He's the kind who only prays when the cameras are rolling. The whole religious thing is fairly recent with him and was his tool of choice to curry public backing of his war agenda.
Think about it. Since 11/7, you don't see religious maniacs strewn all over the South Lawn anymore. They failed him, and now it no longer amuses him to have them around. They no longer offer him an advantage. Makes sense. As his esteemed predecessor Michael Corleone once said "It's not personal, Sonny. It's strictly business."

I'm merely speculating here, but it just might be that Curious George no longer needs his Christian sheeple because he's about to garner the next increase in his power through some other means, like perhaps martial law and the suspension of the Constitution.

...increase in his power through some other means, like perhaps martial law and the suspension of the Constitution.
Maybe in his wet dreams, but Our Glorious Christian Leader has already experienced the peak of his power. Word is buzzing through the crowd now that people have figured it out. Our Glorious Christian Leader is losing it, and even Darth Cheney can't prop him up now.
And Darth is busy being charged with some of his treasonous crimes, like revealing the identity of a secret agent, so against the law if mere citizens do it, but Darth did.
There is not much more we need to worry about from Darth or Our Glorious Christian Leader, it is time for them to be worrying now.

Lutherans... I went to a Lutheran private school when I was a kid. Lutherans aren't watered-down Catholics. They HATE Catholics, from what I've heard. I didn't get that impression when I was there, since the school tended towards more liberal religious views, but the story does not surprise me.
