Quotes of the day

posted at 10:43 pm on May 14, 2012 by Allahpundit

Mr. Obama’s declaration last week that he supports same-sex marriage prompted ministers around the country to take to their pulpits on Sunday and preach on the issue. But in the clash over homosexuality, the battle lines do not simply pit ministers against secular advocates for gay rights. Religion is on both sides in this conflict. The battle is actually church versus church, minister versus minister, and Scripture versus Scripture…

On Sunday, after Pastor Wooden quieted the standing ovation in his sanctuary in Raleigh, a sea of pink hats and dresses in honor of Mother’s Day, he went into a sermon that portrayed the fight for the same-sex marriage amendment as a divinely ordained cause.

Quoting from Exodus, he said God had led people to the polls with a “high hand,” just as God led the Israelites out of Egypt. Mr. Obama went “against God,” the pastor said. He invoked the New Testament passage from Romans in which men turn away from women and burn in their lust, “men with men.”…

“The only thing that has changed in the church since the first century is who is considered ‘us,’ and who is considered ‘them,’” [Pastor Schneider] said. “The essential issue is the same: We aren’t sure ‘they’ belong with God at all. When I was young, a pastor said, whenever you draw a line between us and them, bear in mind that Jesus is on the other side of that line.”

***

“I, like the president, have evolved to a point of marriage equality,” Clyburn said in an interview on MSNBC. “I have not always been there. I grew up in a parsonage, a fundamentalist Christian parsonage, and I grew up with that indoctrination. And I have grown to the point that I believe that we have evolved to marriage equality.”…

“I will remind you that in my lifetime, it was illegal in some states — this state, one of them — for black and white couples to get married,” he said. “I think that we have seen in many churches that call themselves fundamentalist and Christian teach a theological tolerance of slavery and servitude.”

***

In Atlanta, at the historic Ebenezer Baptist Church – where Martin Luther King Jr. got his start – the Rev. Ralph Warnock addressed the president’s remarks near the end of his sermon.

“The president is entitled to his opinion,” Warnock said. “He is the president of the United States, not the pastor of the United States.”…

Black pastors who preach in favor of same-sex marriage know they may pay a price if they take Obama’s position, says Bishop Carlton Pearson.

The Chicago-based black minister says he lost his church building and about 6,000 members when he began preaching that gays and lesbians were accepted by God.

“That’s the risk that people take,” he told CNN. “A lot of preachers actually don’t have a theological issue. It’s a business decision. They can’t afford to lose their parishioners and their parsonages and salaries.”

***

“This is the Bible Belt, and we still believe what the Bible says,” said Harty Wallingford, a civil engineer in Ohio’s Appalachian region. “They can change the Bible in the city, but we won’t change it here. We’re not like California. They’ve just gone crazy there.”…

“No. 1 for me is the morals of this country,” said Wallingford, who believes his friends and neighbors will feel the same. “He (Obama) just lost this county. There’s no way.”…

In the end, though, these Democrats and Republicans in a swing county of a swing state found one more point of agreement. As glasses were drained and dinner plans made, they had a final chance to reflect on what they all thought would, in the end, make the difference on Election Day. To them. To Ohio. And, maybe even, to the nation.

They offered up a two-word response, and it had nothing to do with the news of the past week but rather the issue of the times.

Almost in unison they said: “The economy.”

***

Pat Robertson offered a tepid hint at an endorsement after the interview, reminding his viewers that Romney is their best option.

“It looks like the people who were worried about his Mormonism, at least that crowd is diminishing somewhat,” Robertson said. “The question is, if you have two candidates, you don’t have Jesus running against someone else. You have Obama running against Romney.”

***

***

“I hope you evolve… I’m just teasing.”

***

“This is the heart of the cultural war, Megyn, it is the fundamental beliefs … in Christianity, in scripture and tradition, and all those ideas of right and wrong against a new secularist idea which is quite militant, no doubt gaining in strength. That is the root of the culture war. It’s just like abortion. Is it okay, I mean is that a progressive move or is that the killing of an unborn child. These are the things that are really dividing the country and they’re going to continue. I didn’t declare it a culture war, we just admitted it was there.”

Bishop on May 14, 2012 at 10:49 PM

Every time Obama speaks from his heart about his faith to justify one of his policy positions, I do a face-palm. The bulk of his so-called “spiritual” life is made up of social justice memes reinforced in him over and over again through his series of left-wing life experiences. Nearly every mentor, school, life experience of his, was far left-wing. His spirituality is all about social justice. Which has nothing to do with the spiritual life. It’s POLITICS. The gay marriage thing certainly falls under that category.

Paul-Cincy on May 14, 2012 at 10:50 PM

The battle is actually church versus church, minister versus minister, and Scripture versus Scripture…

That is because church and minister have stop following Romans 12:2 in hopes that the pews will be filled.

And be not conformed to this world: but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God

Much as I’d like to walk into my sister’s church and drag those old buttknocker preachers and deacons into the 21st Century, there is only patience and time. Patience and time will make it right.

I want to point out again Van Jones laughing it up about the fact that blacks will follow O no matter what:

“I think if he came out as gay, he wouldn’t lose the black vote,” Van Jones said with a chuckle. “President Obama is not going to lose the black vote no matter what he does.”

It’s a laughing matter to Van Jones, but the Van Jones chuckle speaks of how fully the black vote is taken for granted. The cavalier of Van Jones could lead to a backlash among blacks against O.

Christianity is pretty clear. Jesus placed sex with in the context of marriage, and marriage was between a man and a woman.

Any other sexual relationship is a sin, and thus not sanctioned by the religion.

Paul-Cincy on May 14, 2012 at 10:59 PM

Heterosexuals in America are wallowing in so much of their own filth–greed, pornography, prostitution, adultery, drug and alcohol additions, etc.–that they’re hesitant to call out homosexuals for doing their sinful destructive things. Research shows that the majority of homosexual couples have less of a traditional marriage relationship–two becoming one for all time–than a relationship between two friends who share a private hobby. That’s why gay male “marriages” are seldom monogamous. Any hobby gets boring.

I have other issues that matter to me. I don’t care if he shows up at my door and says he loves gays. My view of him is the same-he is destroying our country. I got bigger fish to fry. I don’t give a rats a$$ if politicians-care and understand my life or approve.
I dont seek their approval. I am amused by the angry black preachers. They will vote for him anyway..but bit$h on.

I wonder if this will really get him some backlash. The country is screwed and he is grasping at gay marriage as a major issue.

Confront the countries that are stoning/killing women, killing gays,Christians,Jews,Forced abortions, rape, torture..then maybe I will be impressed. Cowards! that goes for the faux stupid media and Hollywood too. Hypocrites.

OMG- we have a gay crisis. What idiots.

Thats all I am saying on the topic. Screw this.

there was “American Woman”

Poor Julia. No Sugar Tonight.

Thanks. I saw that, but I didn’t bother to click because it looked like a general poll post which didn’t interest me. Breitbart caught my eye because its headline was about Romney edging Obama out with women voters.

LOL– I remember being 11 and singing that at the top of my lungs. Of course, I had NO idea what it really meant.

SOmeone said the most awkward moment is when you are singing songs from your childhood and it suddenly dawns on you what they mean..

melle1228 on May 14, 2012 at 11:18 PM

LOL! Imagine the big outrage was Papa Don’t Preach from Madonna.

When I think about it – I think my Grandparents bought me my Cyndi Lauper tape – ewww

gophergirl on May 14, 2012 at 11:22 PM

And I used to think Turning Japanese was just a fun racist song.

CW on May 14, 2012 at 11:16 PM

You mean it’s not about the value of the Yen?

squint on May 14, 2012 at 11:22 PM

Which is why you should stick to classic rock and ignore the trash that appeared in the 80′s, no one will ever get a mixed message from “Hey Joe”.

Then again, there was “American Woman”; still a great song though and not electric drum crap.

Bishop on May 14, 2012 at 11:19 PM

Hey there were several messages in songs in the 60′s and 70′s

Two that come to mind are Lake Shore Drive, and Steve Miller The Joker.. what exactly was he talking about when he used peaches and trees :)

melle1228 on May 14, 2012 at 11:23 PM

I am really over this subject already. The fools will vote for him no matter what, because in the end, color is what’s important and just because Obama sat on a rainbow and showed his true colors this week, there is still a great country that still needs to be taught a lesson.

That last one was for you. The reason I linked those is because this entire thread, the entire subject of media and politics for the last few days is sex. Nothing more. No matter how it is dressed up, this entire subject is about special rights for people who engage in certain types of sex.

My feeling is that we should all be treated equally under the law. One should be able to leave their estate, or any benefits, to a member of one’s family regardless of the type of sex they engage in. So, if we’re going to talk sex on this blog 24 hours a day like we have been recently, I’ll do it my way.

Do you have an opinion on the subject of special rights for people who engage in certain types of sex?

There are old ladies and kids here.

cane_loader on May 14, 2012 at 11:17 PM

Chill. And it’s late, kids should be in bed.

Who you calling old?

melle1228 on May 14, 2012 at 11:29 PM

Alright alright, there’s also “White Rabbit”, “Inagoddadavida”, and “Gimme Shelter”…but at least they weren’t sung by The Pet Shop Boys or Milli Vanilli.

Bishop on May 14, 2012 at 11:29 PM

Prince-Purple Rain

melle1228 on May 14, 2012 at 11:24 PM

Brilliant song from a brilliant album.

You’re angering the old ladies, man! :-)

Okay, I completely misread what you wrote there.

Bishop on May 14, 2012 at 11:29 PM

LOL– Milli Vanilli was the bomb until it came out they didn’t actually sing.

melle1228 on May 14, 2012 at 11:32 PM

AllahsNippleHair on May 14, 2012 at 11:30 PM

I guess I’ll have to tone it down.

Aaaahh! OK, I’m fine. I think I can do it.

jaime on May 14, 2012 at 11:32 PM

Did you know that two male students complained that Obama sexually harassed them while he served on the Harvard Law Review? Maybe he is the first gay president. Wouldn’t it be funny if Obami had a McGreevey moment? andy85719 on May 14, 2012 at 10:47 PM

No. Tell me more
