No degrees of separation

In honor of the pilgrimage of North Carolina judicial candidates to the Christian Coalition meeting in New Bern yesterday:

Onward Christian Judges!

Onward Christian judges, marching just like whores
Down to good old New Bern, crawling on all fours!
Hate those fags and lesbians, damn those heathen foes,
Wrap old glory ‘round your Bibles, pander, reach new lows.

Onward Christian judges, marching just like whores
Down to good old New Bern, crawling on all fours!

Screw the Constitution, screw the church and state,
We’re a Christian nation, A-rabs we do hate.
If your daughter has been raped, she shall bear that child,
Right-to-life’s what matters most, who cares who’s been defiled.

Onward Christian judges, marching just like whores
Down to good old New Bern, crawling on all fours!

Onward Christian judges, god is on your side,
You are right about everything, wallowing in pride.
Kill the dark and heathen, conquer all for oil,
Screw the poor, the sick, the brown, for they deserve to toil.

Onward Christian judges, marching just like whores
Down to good old New Bern, crawling on all fours!

(I learned the original hymn, Onward Christian Soldiers, in Vacation Bible School. I never quite understood the mix of militarism and Christ's message of peace, and I understand it even less today.)

Hmmmmm.......

Any other religious organizations holding forums? Did they attend those? Do we have a list of attendees?

There's bound to be some sticky tax problems

hidden in here somewhere. I'm guessing the Christian Coalition looks for tax breaks every chance it gets. I wonder what the IRS has to say about their embracing Lusty Puke?

The Church Lady is now ready to take complaints from Satan ?

Any other religious organizations holding forums? Did they attend those? Do we have a list of attendees?* SD

There is a truckload of religious forums thoughout the state where a democratic judical candiate is speaking to AME churches and other liberal Southern Baptist churches.

I will try to post the Democrat religious forums event dates if somebody will start a thread Christian Democrats speak up against the church ladies of the religious right with a Dana Carvey pic.

Republican Party Church Ladies Leadership Complaint Department

For those who remember Dana Carvey's "Church Lady" character on Saturday Night Live, we have our own "Church Ladies" here. Incidentally, these people may be male, but they aptly fit the character. From now on, I have created a special section on my website where such messages will be aired. My responses are below. If you have a complaint, please scroll down and fill out the form!

Good god

Just to be clear, I have nothing against god. It's the hateful acts, intolerance and self-righteousness on the part of a fringe group of Christ's followers that makes me want to scream.

church work

As an active Christian, I despise the use of the flag to "spread the word." That's the work of the church, and good church folks have got NO BUSINESS looking to nationalism to help! Leave the work of the church to its people and don't impose on others. SEPARATE, please!

I hope you're happy.

Anglico,

I will now have your version of Onward, Christian Judges stuck in my head for at least three days. It just might be the thing that takes that last little bit of sanity I'd saved up and scatters it to the four winds.

And I learned the original version in VBS, too. I have no idea how a song about war can be reconciled with the Prince of Peace. You have to do a lot of mental gymnastics for that one. I'm not that nimble. I prefer the Peace part.

I've been having the same problem

Though I hate the words to the original, the tune was always kind of catchy.

Every time I ever heard that hymn in church as a kid

I always thought of the scene from MASH (the movie, not the TV series) where everyone in the 4077th starts singing that with the sole purpose of mocking Frank Burns.

A beautiful update, A.
