Two things you need to hold political office: piety & a penis
Gary Cass, above, of the Christian Anti-Defamation Commission, last week released a new video aimed at helping his fellow conservative Christians to understand ‘the biblical qualifications for political office’.
First, such contenders must be Christians, and second, they must be men.
What a candidate professes about God is absolutely critical, it will profoundly shape his leadership. Genuine reverence for the Lord is the foundation of knowledge … so we need a leader who is alive spiritually and who will lead in the fear of God.
Dismissing the idea that a woman can hold political office, the plonker said:
The biblical biological requirement for office is you must be male. Civil leadership should be conceived of as an extension of the family and God’s created order.
God established man as the head of the woman and the woman as his helpmate … In society, the same roles apply as is ordained in the family and in the church.
The ministry of justice that God has given to the state is generally a man’s job.
Yet, there are exceptions in the Bible where God has raised up women like Deborah to judge and even deliver Israel. But it’s considered an indictment when there’s no strong, godly men to lead and protect their families and society.
And while on the subject of nuts, I see that evangelist Franklin Graham is concerned that the “wrong” sort of people are infiltrating churches.
We have to be so careful who we let into the churches. You have immoral people that get into the churches and it begins to affect the others in the church and it is dangerous.
Who are these dangerous infiltrators?
No prizes for guessing homos.
I was talking to some Christians and they were talking about how they invited these gay children to come into their home and to come into the church and that they were wanting to influence them.
And I thought to myself, they’re not going to influence those kids, those kids are going to influence those parents’ children.
What happens is we think we can fight by smiling and being real nice and loving… we have to understand who the enemy is and what he wants.
He wants to devour our homes. He wants to devour this nation.
