Sir John has spoken

Sir Elton John, speaking to the Observer Music Monthly Magazine, said religion lacked compassion and turned people into "hateful lemmings...I think religion has always tried to turn hatred towards gay people. Religion promotes the hatred and spite against gays...From my point of view I would ban religion completely."

Interesting! He then says, "People were too busy blogging on the internet to go out onto the streets to stand up for what they believed in." Maybe he means stand up for what he believes in. Because didn’t he just say that he would want me to be banned for standing up for what I believe in? But I know of no biblical leader that preaches hatred against homosexuals. After all, Christ died for them also. It's the homosexuality that we have a problem with.

Let me quote one of these spiritual leaders:

The Apostle Paul says, "And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet. (Romans 1:27 KJV)

Is this one of the leaders that Sir Elton John wants banned? Or how about this one:

"If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them." (Leviticus 20:13 KJV) Moses wrote this but he was quoting God. I think Sir Elton's title just got trumped.

Let me not leave it at that. While God calls for death, it is a warning to them that might practice it. He doesn’t call us to hate them. He later has Paul state the following:

"But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. (Romans 5:8 KJV)

God doesn’t want us to hate anybody that He loves.

Pompous Donut Hole (Full of air, probably hot)

I believe the "good" Jr. Senator from Mass-Choose-itz (it's all about choice) when he says he botched the joke. After all, his humor record has been rather dismal. I do believe he meant that President Bush was stuck in Iraq. And he did follow up with something like he had been stuck in Vietnam. Though you don't hear much about that comment. It still shows an insensitivity towards those that wear the uniform today. It's Jr's apology that set me off.

We the people misinterpreted the poor maligned "Jr" Senator. Yes my fellow Americans, it's our fault. Don't we know a joke when we hear one? After all, he has shown so much respect for the troops in the past. Like when he came back from Vietnam. Like when he voted for the war then voted against the funding. Like when... well, I can't think of any others just now but there must be more because, after all, he is a Vet you know.

I too am a vet. I did meet some stupid people in the service but they were aberrations. I think there is a greater percentage of stupid people in Congress than there is in the military. (If they are in Congress and served in the military, do I count them once or twice?)

The Elite Senator thinks he speaks down to us from Mount Olympus. All I see is a ketchup bottle. And I'd like to give him a good Swift Boot off of it.
