The Center for Moral Clarity and Michigan Law Adultery Punishable By Life in Prison

Try committing adultery in the state of Michigan. What’s the worst that could happen?

An appeals court has ruled that anyone found in an extramarital affair can be prosecuted for first-degree criminal sexual conduct, a felony punishable by up to life in prison.

“Adultery is a violation of biblical instruction as well as an offense against the other partner in what should be a sacred relationship. Furthermore, the breach of faith is disastrous to children – as well as the broader society,” said Pastor Rod Parsley. “Too many men and women are willing to surrender to passion and desires of the flesh without considering the repercussions of those fleeting moments of pleasure.”

You’ve got to laugh at him, Parsley’s words ring out just like a ‘Whoremonger,’ whose gotta keep the attention off of themselves.

Where does Parsley think American citizens get the type of money to take care of every man or woman that is sentenced to life in prison, due to cheating on their spouses? I wonder how many cheated within the minutes it took me to ink this?

Does he hear himself using the word children in the same sentence as sending their parents to a life of confinement behind bars, based on ‘surrendering to passion and desires of the flesh’?

Rod Parsley is the Founder and President of The Center for Moral Clarity (CMC) the Pastor of World Harvest Church in Columbus, Ohio, a 12,000 member congregation with worldwide ministries and a global outreach.

Senator John McCain Rejects Pastor John Hagee’s Endorsement

John McCain said:

“Obviously, I find these remarks and others deeply offensive and indefensible,” Mr. McCain said in a statement Thursday. “I did not know of them before Reverend Hagee’s endorsement, and I feel I must reject his endorsement as well.”

It’s only fair, what’s good for the goose is good for the gander.

Although, I am a bit surprised seeing as Jews aren’t necessarily perceived as Americans. Not the kind of America that usually set people off like in the case when Pastor Jeremiah Wright spoke so fiercely about. The Jewish persuasion is also viewed as a group of people that fit into the ‘one drop rule’ – tainted ‘you’re not all white’.

And, in America anything or anyone that isn’t considered ‘pure white’… well, let’s just say, “You can be whipped, beaten & spoken against, ” but eventually we’ll get around to defending you – the human rights – of you.

I hope this is truly the beginning of Pastor Hagee’s downfall (or at least the dissecting under a microscope). Under the microscope of what his teachings are about – Hate – Hate – Hate – and more Hate!

His Sunday morning teachings (and midweek) would make a sound minded person question ‘Who is Your God?’ And, if that is who s/he really is — then I choose not.

John Hagee and His Great Whore

Hey, the way Hagee use to say it and the way he’d throw those words around it was as if he wanted her to come to life. It was as if Hagee was having a torrid relationship with her – the great whore- the great whore! Every Sunday morning and through out the week, stinkin’ prevert.

But on a more serious note, Hagee has expressed “Deep Regret” Regarding Catholic Commentary.

John Hagee, the controversial Evangelical pastor who endorsed John McCain, has issued a letter of apology to Catholics for the inflammatory remarks he has made, including accusing the Roman Catholic Church of supporting Adolf Hitler and calling it “The Great Whore.”

Read Hagee’s Letter.

Kansas Governor Kathleen Sebelius Should Be Banned From Communion over Abortion Vote

Archbishop Joseph F. Naumann, of the Archdiocese of Kansas City of Kansas has asked and met with the Kansas Governor Kathleen Sebelius requesting that she no longer partake in the sacred act of communion. The eating of a wafer and the drinking of grape wine [representative of Jesus’ Blood].

You see only the pure absent of sin living their lives in holiness as of the Bible, should ever participate in communion – the holiest of all acts. In that case, not the Archbishop or anyone else for that fact, should raise their hands nor rise to their feet – just don’t get in line.

But whatever holiness and goodness that Governor Sebelius was living it was pretty much cast aside after her April 21st Veto of the Comprehensive Abortion Reform Act passed by the Kansas legislature.

The Archbishop wrote

Since becoming archbishop, I have met with Governor Sebelius several times over many months to discuss with her the grave spiritual and moral consequences of her public actions by which she has cooperated in the procurement of abortions performed in Kansas…. I wrote the governor last August requesting that she refrain from presenting herself for reception of the Eucharist until she had acknowledged the error of her past positions, made a worthy sacramental confession and taken the necessary steps for amendment of her life which would include a public repudiation of her previous efforts and actions in support of laws and policies sanctioning abortion.

Recently, it came to my attention that the governor had received holy Communion at one of our parishes. I have written to her again, asking her to respect my previous request and not require from me any additional pastoral actions.

I must be honest the only thing I can think are these 2 words — Vomit and Regurgitate.

Oh where Oh where is my Separation between Church and State?!

Read all you want at KansasCity.com or at The Leaven.com and here’s a message from the Governor.

Today is National Day of Prayer

“The National Day of Prayer Task Force’s mission is to communicate with every individual the need for personal repentance and prayer, mobilizing the Christian community to intercede for America and its leadership in the seven centers of power: Government, Military, Media, Business, Education, Church and Family”. {go to their official website}.

Who Declared May 1st 2008 National Day of Prayer?

Your President Bush issued a Proclamation on Tuesday April 21, 2008 declaring today the 2008 National Day of Prayer.

A Proclamation by the President of the United States of America

“America trusts in the abiding power of prayer and asks for the wisdom to discern God’s will in times of joy and of trial. As we observe this National Day of Prayer, we recognize our dependence on the Almighty, we thank Him for the many blessings He has bestowed upon us, and we put our country’s future in His hands”. Keep reading {full text}.

What ashame this day surrounds controversy – but it’s prayer – involving everyone personal choice of religion – which will always render different beliefs and different interpretations and meaning.

National Day of Prayer sure sounds like a day when the nation should come together as one, but just like everything else in our Nation this wasn’t all inclusive either. It was not for all religions or people, merely for those who identify themselves as ‘Christian’. Sad isn’t it?

The National Day of Prayer Task Force, a group linked to Focus on the Family excluded clergy representing Catholics, Jews, Muslims and other faith traditions. JewsOnFirst.org made an effort and if I used Christian terminology – extended an olive branch for peace and unity. Their offer to pass the baton was denied, access not granted.

I guess a ‘Family that Prays Together’ doesn’t include a ‘Nation that Prays Together Will’ (what ?).

Christians are just so Godly

Politics in the pulpit — I mean really — are they that intimidated by this man? 

Who wants to hear this little fiasco has anything to do with being ‘Godly.’  Oops wait a minute maybe the Holy Spirit came to him while he was in a deep sleep.  Instructed the great pastor to judge his brethren without a shred of fact(s) or evidence.  When are they or the rest of the critics going to become weary of the hate and nonsense?

While I am sure they are in the name of The Most High, ‘Let’s Pray for Senator Obama’s soul’ I can without hesistation state, ‘that I am praying for theirs.’  Such sad and pathetic little creatures – what a waste of humaness.  My heart bleeds for people who have such empty lives and no focus, that day in and day out the only thing they’re capable of – is spewing venom and lies.  Never any solutions or remedies to the problems – just constantly throwing oil on the fire!

You can read the man of the cloth, the Leader of a people and church – read his explanation as to why he feels compelled to do this, because right now I’m pretty much finished with it – I’ve already given him to much attention and time.  Jonesville Church of God – {Oh My!}

One last thought before I close this up if there is any truth to the Bible – ‘And Jesus Wept.’ 

Whoa…the Christians know how to make him cry.

Reverend Jeremiah Wright to be interviewed by Bill Moyers

Jeremiah Wright to be interviewed by Bill Moyers

In what will be his first interview since snippets of his preaching became a central issue in the U.S. presidential campaign, the Rev. Jeremiah A. Wright Jr. will speak publicly to veteran journalist and fellow UCC member Bill Moyers.

The interview will be broadcast on Friday evening, April 25, on Bill Moyers Journal, a PBS news series that airs nationally. Check local listings at www.pbs.org/moyers.

Wright retired in March after 36 years as senior pastor of the 8,000-member Trinity UCC in Chicago, where U.S. Sen. Barack Obama has been a member for more than 20 years. Trinity UCC is the largest congregation among the UCC’s 5,700 churches.

Following his appearance on Bill Moyers Journal, Wright is scheduled to be the keynote speaker at the NAACP Detroit Branch on Sunday, April 27. He is also slated to speak on Monday, April 28, to a breakfast gathering at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C.

Yet, I’ve got a strong feeling that no matter what Reverend Jeremiah Wright says, that it won’t be enough to sway or change the minds of those who hate him.  Spewing hate in the very name of whom they profess their love for and the message that he represents – God.

I can’t help but wonder, (I don’t give it to much thought) because trying to figure out the mindset of the religious or the Christians would probably send me into a tailspin.  Yet, since Rev. Wright’s greatest hits was first aired provoking God’s people and our patriots into a total outrage do you think they hate God, as much as they hate him?  I do wonder sometimes. 

They are angry over his use of the words ‘God Damn America’.  However I question rather of any these people have read the book of Revelations?  And, if they have – okay do you believe it?

It’s certainly not a book where God is saying, ‘I will soon come to fix you a cup of tea with honey and while I’m at it I will bake you – your favorite cake.  When he gets here for those who aren’t saved and from the Laws that were written none of us will be, it’s not humanly possible.  But he is going to damn this nation.  He is going to destroy this world.  You’ll even find yourself walking knee high in blood through the streets.  There are so many promises of how God is going to damn those (who choose to believe) in the final days.  The one I cited might be the kindest of them.     

So do they hate God, as much as they hate Reverend Wright?  If anyone really has a problem with Reverend saying, God is going to damn America this nation or this world – I say take it straight to God.  It’s in his message that can be found in the book of Revelation. 

And, last since I’ve never blogged or written about this I wonder what sets apart Reverend Wright and Senator Barack Obama in comparison to Pastors John Hagee, Rod Parsley and the senators that are endorsed by and follow them? 

What is the difference between Reverend Jeremiah Wright and those who speak ill words of hatred towards him?  None!  If you believe in the Bible then believe all of it.  A sin -is a sin – is a sin… I’m glad I don’t follow organized religion.
