Christian antics

It was last summer that I wrote about pastor Steven L. Anderson of the Faithful Word Baptist Church in Tempe, Arizona. In his Sunday sermon, Pastor Anderson called on his god to kill President Obama, and the following day, when one of his parishioners showed up carrying guns at an Obama appearance in Phoenix, pastor Anderson went out of his way to praise the dude.


Later on we have Pat Robertson sticking his foot in his mouth (again), saying the earthquake in Haiti was his god’s punishment on a nation that had made a pact with the devil.


Now we have Wiley Drake, a pastor from Orange County, California (and another Baptist, by the way), stating that his god had answered prayers with the death of former Pennsylvania Democratic Congressman John Murtha.


Maybe God took him out,” wrote Drake. “Maybe God answered our imprecatory prayer that we prayed every 30 days.


Isn’t it wonderful that we are such a faithful, loving, Christian nation…

Well that would certainly square with a vengeful Old Testament God. Though...I thought that the New Testament was supposed to take care of that.

Perhaps the xtians keep the OT around just for such circumstances.

There are enough versions/translations of both the OT and NT to support most anything a body might choose to believe - particularly when one's comprehension level is on par with that of rocks . . .
