Hang ‘Em High

Closing Thought–16Jan19

I could do some retro review of a Clint Eastwood movie from the 70s but personally they were all pretty sucky movies…..the old “Spaghetti Westerns” with the weird sounding guns and the bad music.

Awhile back one of my closing thoughts was about the Congress finally making lynching a hate crime…….after 200attempts and finally a success……my post on the situation……https://lobotero.com/2018/12/20/closing-thought-20dec18/

I bring this up because there are some that want to alter the law on lynchings…..and as one might expect it is some religious sorts that want the change….

The U.S. Senate last month unanimously passed a bill that would explicitly make lynching a federal crime. Not everyone, however, is pleased with passage of the Justice for Victims of Lynching Act.

Liberty Counsel, an evangelical nonprofit that opposes gay rights, and its chairman, Mat Staver, are taking issue with the bill’s inclusion of LGBTQ people.

“The old saying is once that camel gets the nose in the tent, you can’t stop them from coming the rest of the way in,” Staver said in an interview with conservative Christian news outlet OneNewsNow. “This is a way to slip it in under a so-called anti-lynching bill, and to then to sort of circle the wagon and then go for the juggler [sic] at some time in the future.”

Staver told OneNewsNow that his organization, which has been labeled an anti-LGBTQ “hate group” by the Southern Poverty Law Center, is lobbying lawmakers in the House to have them remove the bill’s “sexual orientation” and “gender identity” language before taking a vote.

Not a fine example of Christian love, huh?

This is why I dislike most Christians……they are the most hypocritical of people…..plus they are usually conservative and that is just boring.
