I swear to God I'm not after the evangelicals today, but, goddamnit
, they make it so easy sometimes!
Pastor Maury Davis of the monolithic Madison fortress--Cornerstone (Mega)Church--has just sent us a release on his latest lecture series: Our Civic Duty
. You remember Davis, right? He's the guy that caught all sorts of flak for a lecture series entitled Islam: An Evil Religion
. What better way to inflame the prejudices of the ill-informed flock than to preach about it? And inflame them some more. Loving your neighbor and that sort of thing. Does Jesus know you're speaking for him, Pastor Davis?
For the month of June he has his cross
hairs set on Obama. And gays. And, you guessed it, Muslims. He says Christians haven't involved themselves enough in the political process. Right
. So the Moral Majority hasn't been waging a culture war? And installing ninnies in the White House?
White male Paranoia. To wit: "Who would have ever thought that we would live in a place where President George Washington gets one holiday per year, Jesus Christ gets Easter and Christmas, Labor Day gets a day, the veterans of this great country get Memorial Day and Veterans Day, and the gay-lesbian-transgender group of Americans receive, by order of the President, the entire month of June?" asks Maury Davis. "This Administration is leading us down a path of deception by denying our Christian heritage and pushing us toward an acceptance of a misrepresented Muslim faith."
So, if hate and religious demagoguery is your thing, check it out at Cornerstone Church on Sundays this month.
