Quote of the Day: Smell the Sickness

There was a time when conservative Christians in America condemned the "godless Communists" in Russia and hared of all things Russian was almost a requirement.  Indeed, as a child being raised in the Catholic Church I remember prays after mass that were dedicated to "the conversion f Russia."  How things change. Now Southern Baptists are lauding Russian and its dictator, Vladimir Putin, particularly because of his anti-gay agenda.   It demonstrates just how intensely sick conservative Christianity in America has become.  Bob Felton sums it up well:

Though Vladimir Putin’s Russia remains one of the most repressive, hungry, and backward nations on earth, Baptist Press unembarrassedly speculates that the Invisible Boss may be using that benighted nation to lead the West back to right-mindedness.

God once used a donkey to alert a wayward prophet that he was on the wrong track. Could it be the Lord is using a bear, a Russian Bear, to do the same with the nations of the West, in particular the United States?

“Many Euro-Atlantic countries have moved away from their roots, including Christian values,” Russian President Valdimir Putin said in his state of the nation address in mid-December, The Washington Times reported.

Putin continued, “Policies are being pursued that place on the same level a multi-child family and a same-sex partnership, a faith in God and a belief in Satan.”
I am not wrong about this: The organizing principle behind these clowns’ affections is the power to control and degrade other people to the level of their own loser-childishness.
 Conservative Christianity is truly an evil.

No surprise that the Tea Party whackos would join hands with Putrid Putin, who is probably the most evil leader that Russia has had since Stalin.
I too remember the days of the Cold War. How quickly and conveniently some people choose to forget.
