Those are some nice priorities you've got there Dr. Dobson

The religious right has done a lot to alienate me from Christianity. Their hypocrisy on social issues really torks me off. The Washington Post exposes their hypocrisy. So what are Focus on the Family's priorities?
their priorities are abortion, same-sex marriage and seating judges who will back their position against those practices.

"It's not a question of the poor not being important or that meeting their needs is not important," said Paul Hetrick, a spokesman for Focus on the Family, Dobson's influential, Colorado-based Christian organization. "But whether or not a baby is killed in the seventh or eighth month of pregnancy, that is less important than help for the poor? We would respectfully disagree with that."

Hey asshole do you know how many times Jesus addressed your "priorities" in the Gospels? ZERO TIMES. He never talked about abortion or homosexuals. In fact, Jesus only talked about sex when he was questioned about the adulteress/prostitute/all around bad girl. He said something about he without sin gets to throw the first rock. I'm sure Jesus knew gays, after all, he was a resident of the Roman Empire. We all know how decadent the Romans were. It appears the Romans were pretty o.k. with gays from what I remember from my history books.

But Jesus talked and preached about helping the poor. Remember the Sermon on the Mount? Remember the camel going through the eye of needle and the rich man not getting into heaven? And where does the Bible address abortion? It doesn't address it as murder, but as an offense against a man's property (that would be his wife).

BTW, I became an ordained minister today. I am now an ordained member of the Spiritual Humanist Clergy. Click here to become ordained too. I have to check with the state laws of Maryland and Virginia; but I am willing to marry people straight and gay!! The only condition is, both partners must be willing to treat each other as equals, no vows to obey in my wedding ceremonies.

And they say liberals don't believe in marriage.
