Hate.

******************************
Update: Make sure you read the comments to this post left by Rev. Donald Spitz. Feel free to leave your own comments, and if you're so inclined, say a prayer for him. This is exactly the type of hate that I'm talking about.
******************************
So apparently it's gay day on Lifetime. I just finished watching most of The Matthew Shepard Story, and I'm filled with of a mess of different emotions. I did some research into the Matthew Shepard Act, a hate crimes bill designed to prevent hate crimes against LGBT folks. The bill was vetoed by G.W. Bush.

Religious groups such as Focus on the Family protested the bill, stating that it would serve to silence those who "dare to express their moral and biblical concerns about homosexuality", in other words, those who choose to harm gay people in the name of God. As I am to understand it, the name of their God is HATE.

I pray to my God that our country's new leadership will do the right thing in protecting all of its citizens. I know I've said this a lot lately, but I will continue to say it. I REFUSE TO BE ANYTHING BUT WHAT I AM: EQUAL.

How many straight children have been molested and murdered by homosexuals like you? A lot. How many Christians have been assaulted by homosexuals like you because you didn't like the way they voted? A lot. How many Christian churches have been burned down by homosexuals like you because you disagree with the Holy Bible? A lot. Matthew Shepard is in eternal hell fire now and will never get out.
Whatever you think, you will not be able to change God's Word and will one day have to pay the price for not believing what God has written.
Leviticus 18:22 Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.

Leviticus 20:13 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.

Romans 1:22-27

V22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, V23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.

V24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:

V25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, Who is blessed for ever. Amen.

V26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:

V27 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.

SAY THIS PRAYER: Dear Jesus, I am a sinner and am headed to eternal hell because of my sins. I believe you died on the cross to take away my sins and to take me to heaven. Jesus, I ask you now to come into my heart and take away my sins and give me eternal life. http://www.armyofgod.com

Hey Rev -

I'm an ordained minister myself - see we already have something in common!

Look - I appreciate you taking the time out of your busy schedule to visit my little blog, but next time you stop by how's about some manners, huh? I'm sure Jesus would agree with me on this one.

Lying in the name of baby Jeebus, huh rev? When you come up with ONE documented example of each of the above, I'll give you ten of the same committed by heterosexuals.

Put up or quit with the lying you hateful "man of gwad."

First of all, Reverend Spitz ordination is meaningless to me. By that, I mean to say, "so what, I'm ordained too."

I am so familiar with the bold faced lies that Spitz tells. Rings of the loud and often wrong preachers who use sacred scriptures as a weapon, who invoke Jesus name as curse rather that opting for peace, reconciliation, community, or growth.

Shame on you sir. Shame on you for leading your congregation off the side of a cliff in to a blissful, stupor of ignorance and hate.

How silly of you Rev Spitz... nay, how neglectful of you to forget the simplest, most inclusive command of all: "A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another" (John 13:33-35).

So tell me something Rev Spitz, It is said that even Satan can quote scripture as you had, are you related to Satan? Your angry, bitter, bigoted word appear to display the same deceit that Satan uses.

Oh and I'm ordained too, but I don't claim to be any less or more perfect than you obvious infer.

it's beyond me how these people pick and chose from the bible and use it in the name of hate. what about everything else in Leviticus? Furthermore, far more children are molested by hetero men than gay men so by his logic we're to believe ALL straight men are child molesters?

has there been a rash of church burnings lately? i like to think of myself as trying to keep up with the news, and you'd think something like that would make national news. i seem to recall back this summer a church was hit by lightning and burned down, but i don't recall and homosexual church burnings in the last 10 years. hmm. i wonder what news channel the rev. gets his info from.

Jeff said...

Hey Anon -

Thanks for the comment. I'd not heard of any churches being burned down by the gays. And the child molester/murderer thing -- really?? Totally news to me.

Turns my stomach to see these hateful christianist people in action. Luckily they're in the minority now.

I suspect preachers like Spitz are insecure in their own masculine identity. What they really fear is their own homosexual leanings. Remember Ted Haggard, who was preaching against homosexuality while consorting with make prostitutes?

Hey Jeff,
I read this, and let it be for a day or so, and read it again. Then, I checked out this guys blog(s). It appears he has no recent posts, which leads me to believe he surfs and then targets certain blogs and vents. Dangerously appalling. It always amazes me how some so-called Christians hide behind Jesus' robes.
In a sense, I am glad you posted this, and I also think the rev probably reads the commentary, and gets a little excited seeing his name. Just my humble opinion. OC

You get all the best trolls, Jeff. I'm a little jealous.

Jeff said...

UrbanDictionary defines "blog troll" as: "(n)- A depraved individual who sits in front of a computer all day and posts flames of an idiotic or pseudo-intellectual nature on public forums and private websites. Many of these people actually become emotional about what is said on the afore-said mediums and feel it is their duty to punish those who disagree with them. They too may pursue this object in an obsessive-compulsive manner."

So there you have it.

OC said...

Jeff,
Wow, I guess so. In simpler terms, the guy gives me the creeps. Cyn

Jeff,

I have a blog on Wordpress, where this Rev. Donald Spitz said the EXACT same thing to me.

this is my blog: www.herworthisaboverubies.wordpress.com

It's newest blog entry, so when you go to it you should see it with no issues. Click on comments and there it is. The same response he gave to you.

He's truly not in his right mind.
