Total Depravity: The Church That Just Compared Roy Moore, Child Molester, to Jesus

1- Jesus and Roy Moore don’t belong in the same category.  Not even remotely.

2- A Church urging people to vote for a particular person?  Nope.  That’s not a Church.  That’s a cult.  A political cult.  The ‘Pastor’ of that group is no theologian.

NB- With thanks to Juan for the pic on the twitter.

The Alabama Pastor Backing Moore Lied to Cover Up His Son’s Molestation of Orphans

And it’s not even surprising, is it…

Rev. Bill Atkinson, a pastor who sang for Alabama Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore at a recent campaign event, was convicted of obstructing an investigation into whether his son molested children at an orphanage his family owned in Honduras.

Alabama.com reports that Atkinson in 2012 “was found guilty of obstruction and conspiracy for ordering two of his children to destroy a hard drive of a digital video recorder, which held evidence that incriminated” his son, William James “Will” Atkinson IV, of child molestation.

Although Atkinson’s son spent time in a Honduran prison while awaiting trial for alleged child molestation, Alabama.com says that it’s not clear how the case in Honduras was ultimately resolved.

Atkinson’s presence at the Moore event is relevant given the multiple allegations that Moore himself molested teenage girls when he was in his 30s. Moore was also reportedly banned from a local shopping mall because he regularly preyed on teen girls, and a retired Alabama police officer said recently that she was tasked with keeping an eye on Moore during local high school football games over worries that he would hit on cheerleaders.

That’s the sort of person who supports Moore.   If you attend Atkinson’s Church, get out.  your ‘pastor’ is a liar who covers up indecencies and enables child rape.

Dearest Alabama

Please do the right thing in a few weeks and vote for someone, anyone, besides the child molester Roy Moore. I don’t say that as a Northern elitist liberal Washington establishment left winger. I say that as a Christian theologian who lives just to the north of you in Tennessee.

Put your Christianity front and center and ask yourself if it’s really possible for a Christian to support a man who in his 30’s was sexually involved with girls in their teens. Ask yourself if the Lord you serve would be pleased with that vote. Be honest, search your hearts. Do you honestly believe that Roy Moore is who he claims he is while everyone who REALLY knows him fears for their children when he’s around?

Send a Republican to the Senate. Write someone in. They can be just as conservative as Moore for all I care- but they must at least be moral.

But I assure you, as a Christian theologian, that any ‘Christian’ who can separate their private faith and their voting booth habits is no Christian. If you vote for an evil man, you make yourselves evil. And you’ll give an accounting to God for why you’ve done it.

Dearest Alabama, do the right thing.

The Disciples of Roy Moore Are Disciples of Satan

“Or in other words, I’d be mad at him but I’d vote for him anyway.”

I don’t know who this Tully Borland creature is, but I think her or his children should be removed from the home and allowed to live with someone who actually cares for them.

The disciples of Moore are sick, sickening people.  I can’t even comprehend the evil resident in their hearts and minds.

If you don’t believe in Total Depravity, you’re a fool.

Daily Reminder for Men

Men- keep your hands and face and parts to yourself.  Real men don’t molest.  Real men receive invitations.  Vow to yourself to not be a jerk, pervert, molester, reprobate today.  Make the world just a little bit better by exercising self control.  Just like you learned in Kindergarten.

The #GOPTaxScam

Dear GOP Senators and Congressmen,

I was afraid the 1% and Congress would be hurt by the bill you’re putting together. It’s such a relief to know that only the middle and lower classes will be.   Thanks so much Senator Lamar Alexander and Senator Bob Corker.   You guys are real heroes to the super rich. I just hope you don’t have to stay in office to see the death and destruction you’ll cause.

It Looks Like Rome Has Finally Gotten Around to Dedicating that Square in the City to Luther

Back in 2015 Rome decided to honor Luther with a square.  It looks like they’ve finally dedicated it-

Well that seems about right, given Rome’s 500 year long attitude to Martin…

Predestination and Preaching in Genevan Theology from Calvin to Pictet

Given the conclusions of recent research, that predestination was no central dogma to, and did not affect the method of reformed theology, this study investigates the question of if and how the doctrne of predestination affected the ideas and practice of preaching. The relation of predestination and covenant, congregation, atonement, faith etc. are researched in the theology and sermons of John Calvin, Theodore Beza, John Diodati, and Theodore Tronchin, Francis Turretin, and Benedict Pictet.

This study shows that in Genevan Reformed Theology from Calvin to Pictet, predestination and the external call were inseparably connected, but that the doctrine of predestination neither dominated the content nor restricted the address of the external call.

Cthulhu To Speak At Liberty University

Liberty University has announced its next set of Convocation speakers for the coming semester, and among several prominent athletes and political figures is the ancient, brooding cosmic entity known as Cthulhu, sources confirmed Tuesday. The horror from beyond time and space will address the student body, giving his remarks on living moral lives and voting Republican, according to Liberty reps. “We’ve got a really special treat for all Liberty students: the Sleeper of R’lyeh from the unknown reaches of the stars,” Jerry Falwell Jr said in an announcement video. “It’s important to us that our students get a well-rounded experience while attending our university, and that includes hearing from varying perspectives, like various conservative politicians as well as the Great Dreamer from the blackest depths of the sea.”

“Iä! Iä! Cthulhu fhtagn! Iä! Iä! Cthulhu fhtagn!” he added, his eyes glazing over in a trancelike stare.

According to Falwell, an expedition was sent to the murky waters of the South Pacific to extend an invitation to Cthulhu, who was taking a nap in his house at R’lyeh at the time, waking up to warmly accept the invitation to speak at the school. Liberty University personnel claim rumors that Cthulhu will devour all of humanity after the event are unfounded.
