What God do these people claim to believe in?

1 John 3:17-18

If anyone has material possessions and sees his brother in need but has no pity on him, how can the love of God be in him? Dear children, let us not love with words or tongue but with actions and in truth.

So, after the deplorable acts of recklessness of this week, do "our" demonstratively heartless Governor and his rich, freedom-fried buddies in the NC House and Senate claim to be Christian? Can they do something in the interests of the people of North Carolina they are supposedly "serving?" All I've seen them do for their fellow man is to limit and deny care to the sick and the poor.

I grew up learning that Christianity was about LOVING thy neighbor, not just looking after one's own interests.

Hey WRAL or the News and Observer or someone, please ask all of them about their religious beliefs:

  • What does it mean to you to be a Christian?
  • Do you care about people in gener
  • What have you done to prove this?
  • Why did you want this job? (esp. Art Pope)
  • Do you have a favorite prayer? Should I say it for your soul?

I'd really like to know what they'd say. Thanks for reading.

Their god

is the god who made women's breasts for no purpose other than to give perverted old men something to jerk off over.

Genesis 4: 9-10

And the Lord said unto Cain, Where is Abel thy brother? And he said, I know not: Am I my brother's keeper?

And he said, What hast thou done? the voice of thy brother's blood crieth unto me from the ground.

Genesis 4: 9-10
KJV

 

When the BlueNC crowd starts quoting the Bible

then McCrory and the Republicans must be on the right track.

Maybe you should take a moment

to look at the good book yourself.

As an atheist, I find the Bible both interesting and full of crap. But more to your point, there is no "BlueNC crowd" that I'm aware of ... unless you happen to have a mouse in your pocket.

PS A favor please

It would be helpful if you'd stop putting a long line of periods at the end of your subject lines. It adds unwelcome lines in the "recent comments" block, requiring more scrolling, especially for those using smartphones to log in.

Thanks.

Bible

As an atheist I don't begrudge anyone his or her beliefs, as long as they keep them to themselves and out of government and public education.
Religion is a lot like having a penis.
It's fine to have one and it's fine to be proud of it.
What is not fine is whipping it out and waving it around in public.
And what is really not fine, is pulling it out and trying to shove it down other people's throats.
The bible is a fine book of fiction, and I'm not saying there aren't any truths in it. But what good is a glass of milk that is 2% milk and 98% piss?
