‘Save our county from God’s coming wrath’

‘Save our county from God’s coming wrath’

Blount County, Tennessee, commissioner Karen Miller, above, is hoping that fellow lawmakers will this week approve a resolution asking God not to destroy them over same-sex marriage.

Miller, according to this report, authored Resolution No 15-10-006 after the Supreme Court brought marriage equality to all 50 states, and after former Tea Party congressman Michele Bachmann (and a great many others) claimed that God might destroy America over same-sex marriage.

The “resolution condemning judicial tyranny and petitioning God’s mercy” officially pleads with God on behalf of the county not to destroy the county.

It reads in part:

WE adopt this Resolution before God that He pass us by in His Coming Wrath and not destroy our County as He did Sodom and Gomorrah and the neighboring cities.

As the Passover Lamb was a means of salvation to the ancient Children of Israel, so we stand upon the safety of the Lamb of God to save us.

WE adopt this Resolution begging His favor in light of the fact that we have been forced to comply and recognize that the State of Tennessee, like so many other God-fearing States, MAY have fallen prey to a lawless judiciary in legalizing what God and the Bible expressly forbids.

Doritos-Rainbows

Meanwhile, it is reported here that snack food giant Frito-Lay has incurred the wrath of Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee by releasing limited edition rainbow-coloured Doritos in support of the LGBT anti-bullying It Gets Better Project.

Huckabee now wants Christians to boycott “all snacks” made by the company.

The rainbow Doritos have also infuriated another Mike, but for very different reasons.

Mike Adams, “the Health Ranger” on the Eco Liberty site, insists that the Doritos initiative will only serve to make fat lesbians fatter, pointing out that it was launched in an era:

When lesbians have far higher rates of obesity than heterosexual women. If you’re already obese and you keep eating genetically modified Doritos laced with MSG, it doesn’t get better… it gets WORSE.

Think about the utter insanity of this entire contrived campaign: Gays and lesbians are supposed to rush out and buy these artificial colored GMO Doritos for $10 a bag as some sort of ‘show of support’ for the LGBT community? Really? The same community that’s already suffering from high rates of obesity?

So after suffering verbal abuse from gay-haters, the LGBT community is now directly promoting CHEMICAL abuse of their own members? All while promoting the profit interests of Frito-Lay and Monsanto, two corporation that utterly lack ethics of any kind?

He ends with a note to Frito-Lay:

Gay people are not stupid. They actually tend to know more about nutrition than straight people.

As a result, the only people who are going to eat rainbow-colored Doritos aren’t gay people, but stupid people who don’t know anything about nutrition. No self-respecting gay person that I know would dare be caught dead with his hand in a bag of Doritos. If I see someone eating a bag of rainbow-colored Doritos, I’m not going to think to myself, ‘That person’s gay’. Nope, I’m going to think, Wow, that person’s an idiot.

Confession: Last night, while watching an “abhorrent, left-wing, humanistic and atheistic” movie entitled God Bless America, I scoffed two bags of regular Doritos. Oh, the shame!

    God save us from dumbfuck christians.

    “When lesbians have far higher rates of obesity than heterosexual women.” (citation needed)

    “Gay people are not stupid. They actually tend to know more about nutrition than straight people.”

    Which one is it ?

  2. AgentCormac says:

    You know, I’ve always wondered how the religiots actually communicate with their god. And now all is revealed – he reads every last resolution written by places like Blount County, Tennessee.

  3. L.Long says:

    Well looking back at other times of gawd’s wrath, she has a good reason to be concerned. HATE GAYS! caused poor minority xtians to be hurt in Katrina (not the gays or rich), The earthquakes and floods were busy hitting poor minority xtians (not gays or rich) and all this is the same for HATE ABORTION!.
    Their gawd’s aim is awful!!! They should be afraid…but not her as she looks white & rich.

  4. Rob Andrews says:

    God must love lesbians as they have low rates of VD.

    But the anti-gay thing is a storm in a teacup. They really need to worry about what’s going on in the EU right now. Pray to be saved from the wrath of Islsm.

    I know this is a right wing site. but some of the articles make sence .http://gatesofvienna.net

    “WE adopt this Resolution before God that He pass us by in His Coming Wrath and not destroy our County as He did Sodom and Gomorrah and the neighboring cities.”

    But if he wants to destroy the next county along, go ahead. It’s probably full of homosexuals anyway.

    “As the Passover Lamb was a means of salvation to the ancient Children of Israel, so we stand upon the safety of the Lamb of God to save us.”

    A god who kills the children of Egyptians is fine by us, as long he leaves our children alone.

    ” lawless judiciary”.

    Eh?

  6. Stephen Mynett says:

    Perhaps they might want to add this to their resolution: “And please God can you be a bit more accurate than you were when you allowed that fucking atheist Rebecca Vitsmun to live and killed her Christian neighbours.”

    Are they really allowed to introduce legislation in the USA which appears to be a prayer to the christian god? Whatever happened t separation of church and state?

  8. Laura Roberts says:

    This is the kind of legislation that is likely to go unchallenged (assuming it passes) because it doesn’t actually do anything except set another filthy precedent of church-state entanglement.

    I wonder how she’d respond if someone informed her she is advocating sharia law (shariat al-Masih, religious law of Christianity)…?

  9. barriejohn says:

    They just don’t get it, do they? Of course, this is not helped by confusion caused by the “In God We Trust” motto, which quite clearly refers to the Judaeo-Christian version of the manifestation!

    American christians are doing a pretty good job of destroying their country themselves by over-consumption, mineral and oil extraction, land exploitation and deforestation. And I seem to remember it was christians of various types who slaughtered the indigenous population and stole their land.

    Gate of Vienna?
    This is what the website Loonwatch.com says about Gates of Vienna: “Gates of Vienna the notorious white supremacist blog which published Fjordman and inspired Anders Brievik, recently published a three part essay which calls for the Holocaust of Muslims” They are known for adhering to the Eurabian conspiracy theory first created by Gisèle Littman (also known as
    Bat Ye’or), a Jewish author and political commentator, basicly saying that Europe would sign a pact with Muslims and turn against the Jews. When that didn’t happen the theory was modified to fit current circumstances. They also publish Fjordman, a well known far right islamaphobe who wrote in his book Defeating Eurabia “Islam and all those who practice it must be totally and physically removed from the Western world”. If he were a muslim that statement would be considered Jihad.

    So radical islam calls for the destruction of all non muslims and Gates of Vienna calls for the destruction of all muslims. Seems like 2 sides of the same hate filled coin. Could there be a more rational middle ground than calling for the death of 1/4 of the world’s population?

  12. Vanity Unfair says:

    We have the makings of a valid experiment here.
    All USA local authorities should be allowed to make a resolution such as, “WE adopt this Resolution before God that He pass us by in His Coming Wrath and not destroy our County as He did Sodom and Gomorrah and the neighboring cities.”
    It’s illegal, I know, but let that pass for the sake of science. The country is then divided into two groups, those with and those without the call for divine protection. So, sit back and wait.
    After a predetermined time, say five years, compare the two groups’ rates of destruction and from that conclude whether such an appeal is worthwhile.
    Possible objections: only one, really: in the unlikely event of JHWH’s actions not conforming with the promoters’ expectations I expect to hear either:
    2 Peter 3:8
    “But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.”
    or:
    Psalms 90:4
    “For a thousand years in thy sight are but as yesterday when it is past, and as a watch in the night.”

    I would have thought that Mike Adams was just posting a satirical piece, but alas his anti GMO anti science BS puts him in as much a wingnut class as Miller

    Too many wackos in the world.

  14. Cali Ron says:

    @barriejohn: “In God We Trust” wasn’t the country motto until 1956 when it was adopted primarily in response to “atheist” Russia during the cold war. Of course that fact doesn’t stop christians from using it as “proof” that America is a “christian” nation.

    As for the legislation it’s only 1 of thousands of stupid, obsolete and irrelevant laws. Example: Many cities have laws stating they are non nuclear as if they have any say in such matters. We also still have lots of sodomy laws on the books. Sadly, there is no requirement for elected politicians to actually prove they have any actual knowledge of how government operates or how laws are supposed to work. Sigh!

  15. Cali Ron says:

    @Angela K: Manifest Destiny! It’s all OK, cuz god meant for us to rape the land and it’s people (apparently Native American Indians souls don’t matter to this god). Today we have replaced Manifest Destiny with American Exceptionalism, another way for flag pin wearing Americans to say we’re better than everyone else. Even when we clearly are not. Sophomoric, egotistical and divorced from reality. We used to be pretty exceptional, but nowadays we are only the dominant leaders in a few things like size of military, waging wars and consuming oil.

  16. L.Long says:

    But Stephen Mynett what most xtians don’t know is that gawd likes atheists and others that THINK!!!! You know this when you realize that the TREE was placed as a test to see who would have the intelligence and curiosity to eat of it. Eve passed and Adam flunked as he was too busy playing with his toy or picking fleas off his chest.

  17. Broga says:

    @L.Long: I tried this argument on my devout Christian relative years ago. I said that God gave us intelligence as his great gift and we should use it and not offend him by spurning it. He also said up some simple traps such as an unbelievable holy book and incredible claims preached by phonies i.e. priests, pastors etc.

    Those who failed the simple test would be sent to hell by the God they offended by refusing to use his most precious gift. Those who rejected the incredible stories i.e. atheists would go to heaven.

    My relatives husband, a long suffering victim of her fundamentalist opinions, told me she couldn’t sleep after this and her doses of sleeping pills and anti depressants had been increased. He asked me not to discuss religion with her again. I never raise the subject. She insists to bringing me to Jesus. I know all this sounds bizarre but it is true.

  18. Cali Ron says:

    I think it says a lot about christianity that it starts with god not wanting people to eat from the fruit of knowledge. So the whole religion starts with trying to keep man ignorant-easier to manipulate that way. It goes downhill from there.

  19. Angela_K says:

    Cali Ron. Yes, the most backward countries are the most religious, countries with little available education are the most religious, countries with appalling human rights are very religious…..

    In an age of information, ignorance is choice.

  20. barriejohn says:

    God’s ways are above our ways, and past finding out. He has purposes which we can never know and which he will never divulge to any other creature. He is infinitely loving and wise. We cannot question what he does or the reasons for it, but we have to accept that it is all part of his eternal plan. If unbelievers prosper and believers suffer then that, too, is part of the plan, though we may never understand how or why. I do hope that helps to make things clear!

  21. Cali Ron says:

    Clear as mud, like all religions.

  22. A Confused Atheist says:

    ‘God’ is going to destroy the Southern United States for legalising same-sex marriage? Notice how s/he hasn’t gotten around to the same for the other countries on Earth who have already done so. Hmm, strange, huh?
