Of course, many things are sinful, according to the Bible, and EVERYONE, yes EVERYONE is a sinner, according to the New Testament. Even Christians are sinners aren’t they? Like the bumper sticker says, Christians are not perfect, just forgiven. Here is the thing that drives me crazy. If you do not agree with what the Bible says about sin, or Homosexuality, or drunkeness, or gambling to excess, or lying, then by all means do not become a Christian. But honestly, this idiotic notion that we can just change what the Bible says to be more PC is a fool’s errand. Smitty has more on one such fool
Such as O. Wesley Allen Jr.:
But other Bible experts said the Scripture Robertson cited isn’t quite clear about homosexuality.
“A lot of people misread this text because it’s so complicated,” said O. Wesley Allen Jr., an associate professor at Lexington Theological Seminary in Kentucky.
First, scholars say, we have to look at the context surrounding Paul’s letter.
The Christian leader is trying to get the quarreling Corinthians to stop taking each other to civil courts and being judgmental. “The very fact that you have lawsuits among you means you have been completely defeated already,” Paul says.
Things were supposed to be different after they became Christian believers, Paul continues; they were supposed to stop their sinful ways.
There are plenty of areas for conjecture about the Bible, especially the beginning of creation and the apocalyptic end.
But to try to say that the Bible, at any point, is less than clear when it comes to sexuality is a public confession of unreliability. The human form is the human form. The reproductive system is not the digestive system. Sexual activity outside of marriage (which I should not have to state means the heterosexual context, not any of the current ‘novel’ geometries) means falling short of the optimal.
I think that sums it up pretty well. Christianity is a religion, a faith, if you do not like what that faith is about, then go another way, it is that simple.

Good for Dana Bash for asking the question. Reid’s answer exposes his, and his fellow Democrats rank arrogance. Talk about an insensitive response. Other people have problems too, so according to Senator Weasel Dick, kids with cancer can go without help so the Democrats can play politics, and finish forcing Obama Care on people who never wanted it.
Exit question: Is there anything Democrats will not do to gain total control of our lives?
UPDATE! Smitty notes something i should have caught at 49 seconds into the video asks this
0:49 What right do they have to pick and choose what part of government’s going to be funded?
And the Constitution says:
All Bills for raising Revenue shall originate in the House of Representatives; but the Senate may propose or concur with Amendments as on other Bills.
So if the House, which has remained oddly stuck in size since 1910, and thus may not represent the people with optimal fidelity, originates a bill, it’s kind of odd that the Dim Bulb from Vegas not know from whence that right originates.
Of course, RS McCain and Smitty do not “hate” they just note that several Disney child stars have, how should I put this delicately, gone the slutty route. RS McCain calls this Post-Disney Deviance Syndrome
Post-Disney Deviance Syndrome deserves scrutiny as a cultural phenomenon. As a parent, it seems like one minute your children are watching some cutesy little kiddie sitcom on Disney Channel and then — fast-forward — topless photos, DUIs, rehab and nervous breakdowns.

Breakup: I Was “Way Stressed Out”

Well true that several recent Disney child stars have, well imploded to some degree. But, I feel the need to point out that so far anyway, Hilary Duff is doing well. Married, to a hockey player, and when was the last time an NHL star got into trouble, a mom, and yes HOT! By the way, as a side note, no NHL player would ever go Brett Kimberlin and accuse his wife of being NUTS! Would they? No, but then again, NHL players are men, not whiny bitches like Brett Kimberlin. Now, back to something MORE important, Hilary Duff being hot
I know, that sounds way off base, but allow Bob Belvedere to explain
From Newsbusters, Noel Sheppard reporting, we learn [tip of the fedora to Rareand Smitty]:
NBC’s Chuck Todd told an inconvenient truth about Barack Obama on Sunday’sMeet the Press.
“The rise of the internet media and social media and all that stuff – he hates it”
You know, this past five years have been tough for all of us who love and cherish our freedom and liberties. It’s been damn depressing, too. So it’s nice to know that the King Of Rat Bastards really hates us. We must be doing something right.
And, as Mr. Sheppard writes:
Todd was likely quite correct, but chose not to disclose why Obama hates new media. It’s because most of it isn’t in the tank for this President and can’t be controlled by him.
I consider this a badge of honor. We must be doing something right!
Smitty opines on the question of supporting a Gay Republican
Props to Bruce Carroll:
I felt it best to resign from GOProud in advance of the CPAC conference this week so that my position in GOProud would not be a distraction from my serious deliberations regarding my potential future plans in South Carolina public service.
I wish only the best to my colleagues and fellow supporters of GOProud moving forward and I’ll always do what I can to be helpful from the crowd.
Over the next few weeks, I will be studying the resources, time and effort it would take to do my part in holding Lindsey Graham accountable for his voting record and his attitude toward the voters in South Carolina.
Feel free to disagree with me on the point, but I’m not holding anything against Carroll, sexual or otherwise. Hopefully we’ve the liberty to support great candidates without that translating into 100% endorsement of all that candidate’s personal choices, fashion or otherwise.
Some might disagree with Smitty. I will not be counted among them. I could not care less about Carroll’s love life. I care about his Conservative creds, period.
I have an interesting thought. Will Karl Rove support this “more diverse candidate” over the establishment guy, Lindsey Graham?
Smitty suggest Janet Napolitano might run if………
So, what happens if Hillary Clinton doesn’t run in 2016?
It is hard to imagine the presidential field without a woman contender, and here’s one to keep your eye on: Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano. Napolitano is quietly making it known that she is considering the race, and there is reason to take her seriously.
Yeah, I can see the GOP, Tea Partiers, and basically anybody else with a functioning brain being more than a little motivated to work against Big Sis if she’s on the ticket.
Now, if she brings on Bill Maher as VP, would the double negative somehow work?
Napolitano/Maher 2016? Or maybe I should say Dumber than a Tree Stump/Ultimate Douche Nozzle 2o16? And the campaign slogan would have to be If you See Something Say Something
In fact I will go this far, Colin Powell has already left the GOP. he might not have officially said it, but he is a Liberal. He has all the talking points down, all the snide remarks about how secretly racist the GOP is. In fact if he is not a Democrat, he should get an Oscar for acting like one. Smitty seems to agree with me, more or less Frankly, Powell can leave and take Chris Chrsitie with him, I am sure Charlie Crist will welcome them with open arms, and lots of fake tan spray!
