Just wanted to thank Dr. Mel White for his book
[Funny, I joined several years ago but now am finally posting]
Been reading Mel's book, "Holy Terror: Lies the Christian Right Tells Us to Deny Gay Equality" and his comparison of Nazi Germany to the radical Christian fundamentalist right has many comparative truths. I too was a fundamentalist many years ago until I came out, and acquainted with Falwell, Kennedy, Robertson, Graham & Dobson, even donated to their ministries.
As the years passed, my eyes were finally opened to the twisted brainwashing they have come to believe. As Joseph Goebbels said, [not exact quote] perpetrate a lie enough and eventually it will be believed!
The Christian Bible wants to surpass our Constitution and if in ANYWAY it disagrees with the Bible, the Bible MUST transcend our own government. How can they be so naive???
The bottom line, Without using violence, but using the voting system, they are desperately trying to "win" over the populous with their diatribe of evil falsehoods. Thank you Mel for a wonderfully insightful book. Can't put it down <> almost finished. I too have "been" where you have and as Paul in Acts stated, the Bereans searched the scriptures night & day to see if what he said was true. I too have searched and FOUND MORE TRUTH in WHAT YOU have said in your book then what those fundamentalists have ravaged the airwaves with for so many years. Sometimes it just takes folks longer than others to come around. Better late then never and again, Dr. Mel White, you are one of those Angels mentioned in Hebrews: Hebrews 13:2
Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for by this some have entertained angels without knowing it. You ARE my Angel!! Thanks!!
Also, I emailed a cousin about something from Mel's book that I want to include here:
In reading the following book [under 2 titles]:
1. Holy Terror: Lies the Christian Right Tells Us to Deny Gay Equality
2. Religion Gone Bad: The Hidden Dangers of the Christian Right [hard cover]
The author, Mel White who ghosted for Jerry Falwell, D. James Kennedy, Pat Robertson, Billy Graham & others, came out late in life and has realized that the so called fundamental Christian right is as dangerous as Nazi Germany. So much to tell from his book but he compared the movie, "The Eternal Jew" and what Hitler & Nazi Germany did to convince German citizens that the Jews were a race of filthy, money hungry etc. [you're heard it, don't need to elaborate] animals, basically.
He compared the radical right's desire of usurping the Constitution [USA] with the Bible. If the Constitution IN ANY WAY should disagree with the Bible, the Bible would be the higher law. They really want to "win" the battle over abortion & Homosexuality. Look at all the laws they are trying to pass regarding women's rights.
But, anyway, found the link to the movie and man, how could anyone be convinced that we are how they "picture" us? Again, the same question is raised: How can anyone be convinced by the radical right of the falsified facts they perpetrate. Brainwashing . . . . Joseph Goebbels said, if a lie is told frequently enough, eventually, it will be believed!
Just like I told you yesterday, people have really "dumbed" themselves down. When I'm told something, I don't just accept it verbatim as unequivocal fact, not disputable! With the Net, we can research so much and find the truth. Although, the truth now can be as gray as the lie because again, folks don't investigate to find all the details to prove false or true.
Yea, I'm rambling here, kinda rant & rave thang. But anyway, watch the movie, absolutely an abomination to us JEWS!! Let me know if ya agree. sure ya will!
Maybe you all can watch the movie and see just what Mel is inferring. The rad-right want to convince the public we are evil, deviant, perverted, dirty animals, just like in this movie the Nazi's wanted to convince the German citizenry what the Jews were.
HOW HORRIBLE, we must stop the lies!
What would Jesus do? He is weeping today as He did 2000 years ago.
Don't mean to sound so negative, I'm a very optimistic cwayzee fun loving individual. Just wanted to give a heads up here and READ Mels' book!!!!!!!
