Little Ole’ Bigot

March 18, 2007 ·

A southern, right-wing, anti-abortion, Dominionist bigot recently wrote this post denouncing Joanne Nemecek for supporting her spouse in transition. I’m not sure she’ll actually let it out of moderation (sooooo typical of right wingnut blogs), so I wanted to post my response here.

“I would be amused (how you support a war that has killed thousands, yet you’re pro-life?…pfftt… too funny), if this wasn’t all so pathetic. First of all, I love your use of idols (a representation or symbol of an object of worship; ie flag and eagle), on this page. Secondly, if you’re going to live your life via the Torah, be warned, it is NOT to be dissected.

‘There is to be one law and one ordinance for you and for the alien who sojourns with you.’ – Numbers 15:16

‘Fact is I can criticze her’

I’d first suggest a spell check, then I’d suggest you check 1 Corinthians 5:12-13:

“What business is it of mine to judge those outside the church? Are you not to judge those inside? God will judge those outside. ‘Expel the wicked man from among you.'”

This was in a letter to A CHURCH, or A BODY OF BELIEVERS. Unless you share the same pew with the Nemeceks, you have NO biblical directive to place judgment on them.

‘I don’t think she’s doing what’s right.. right now what’s right is thinking of those children and what this is doing/showing to them, not keeping the marriage together at ANY cost.’

What you think is irrelevant in light of scripture. Divorce is only acceptable when there has been unfaithfulness. (Matthew 5:32).

I’m not surprised at this kind of talk. You’re not a Christian, you’re a hypocrite that knows nothing of scripture, that has a heart full of hatred (your use of that racist flag is a fine example). You justify your smarmy attitudes through men, not scripture.

I can’t say that I’m at all shocked by this kind of attitude. It’s pick and chose theology at its finest. They’ll rail against homosexuality or crossdressing that is forbidden in the Torah, but how many of them follow the dietary rules called for in Leviticus? Or for that matter the moral punishments for breaking the laws?

Their absurdity reminds me of one of my most favorite sites ever, God Hates Shrimp.com

  1. Well, I couldn’t surmise those things from her site, but maybe you know her better than I.

    Open minded types? Who claimed to be open minded? I’m not open to nonsensical arguments. I’m open to debate on issues of scripture and logic, but Lil Ole’ Bigot’s POV is nothing but empty bigoted rhetoric.
