Graham: Pray For Jesus To Stop The “Evil” Marriage Bill

What the heck is eating these people.    What have people like Ron and I ever done to them?   Why do they think they are so much better than we are?   Why do they think they should have the right to marry who they love while denying that right to us?  I have known straight people who have gotten married and then divorced within a week yet the relationship of life long gay people or straight people who have more than two people in the relationship is unthinkable to them.    I am tired of it.   I did not sign on to their religious views, why do they think they get to force me to live by their church dictates?    Being straight is not a badge of honor, the rest of us don’t care.   Hugs

Posted to Franklin Graham’s Facebook page:

This week the U.S. House of Representatives passed the deceptively named “Respect for Marriage Act” in a 267-157 vote.

If this bill becomes law, it would formally repeal the  Defense of Marriage Act—a law that was passed in 1996 defining marriage for federal purposes as the union of one man and one woman.

While I’m not surprised that all of the House Democrats voted in favor of this bill, I was confused by the 47 Republicans who followed suit.

God says that marriage is to be between one man and one woman—not two men, not two women. The GOP used to believe that too.

Will you pray for God’s intervention as this bill moves on to the Senate? Only He can save us from our evil and rebellious ways.

Make sure you know how your representatives vote because it reveals where they stand on these and other important Biblical and moral issues.

Remember, elections are our opportunity to vote for men and women who support Biblical values and morality.

Democracy, not idiotic theocracy.

I wonder what scandal will bring this cracker down?

Hm, your God had a much different definition of marriage in your Old Testament, where certain God-favored dudes not only had multiple wives, but also concubines, handmaids, and slaves that they could fuck at their pleasure. Guess that your God must have changed his mind for some reason.

Whoops, I forgot to include daughters in that list. Sorry, Lot!

So wait, God didn’t stop gay marriage the last time, right? Does that mean it is his will? Or if he stops this bill, is that his will? Or is he just a bully, giving gay people marriage, then taking it away? Or maybe, just maybe, He exists only in your imagination.

Franklin, Jesus wants to sit on a chair in the corner of your bedroom and watch Jared Kushner fuck your wife.

Your fellow Brother-in-Christ, Jerry Falwell Jr., did something similar with his wife and a hunky pool boy.

News flash! No American has to live according to your particular interpretation of “biblical”* standards.

BTW “biblical” is not capitalized in standard usage.

17 years of marriage equality in Canada, but and their society hasn’t collapsed.

  1. Scottie;
    Obviously you have done nothing to warrant such treatment from such people. You served your country, your community, and you assist folks in need. You are truthful, loving, caring, humble…. how dare you!
    Nope. The problem is that tent revivals and church pulpits that preach loving one’s neighbor, feeding the poor, loving the stranger, the sick, one’s family, those things Jesus is said to have spoken on repeatedly…they don’t make a lot of money. The age of the poor preacher who hopes for that day when he may be called home as “I knew thee well, good and faithful servant” …. well, there’s just no money in it. But, preach the right to hate, to lift oneself over another, to excuse abuse, hurt, well, there is all sorts of earthly glory and money in that! There is power in that! If nothing else, the church has learned that pardoning hate and sin and debauchery – once the check clears – is fantastically profitable and popular.
    So, you see your problem, Scottie: You don’t have enough money.
    hugs

      1. Hello Brother I do know what you meant. And you are correct. Love just doesn’t pull in the big money that hate does. Look at the TV preachers that have multiple planes and mansions understand this emotional pull. Sadly Randy we have a Supreme Court that wants to give religious control of the country to their faith. This really is a complete coup and takeover of the US by a different government than our founders wanted. By fait of religion. 6 people, 3 installed by tRump are overturning democracy and installing a theocracy where their religious views are paramount in how our country is governed. Oh and brother, every time Ron comes home from the grocery store he complains we don’t have enough money also, so the line is correct. 😀😃😄😎😍 Love you always! Hugs

  2. I think you know in your heart of hearts, Scottie, that it’s not the marriage that they’re upset about. It’s the relationship of two individuals that, in their opinion, should not exist. The resistance to marriage is just a tool to express their thwarted religious viewpoint.

    1. Hello Nan. You are so correct it hurts. They are obsessed with sex, and the kind of sex people with the same sex organs maybe having. I keep saying that these people think of same sex action more than we gay people do. Nan sorry to be explicit / suggestive, but I need to make the point. You walk through a store, and you see two guys or two girls walking together, they may be sharing a shopping cart. What do you think? Real first impressions. Maybe how they look or act, how they are dressed or what might be their interest or in their basket? If like most of us, you just navigate by them without giving them much thought. But that is not how these bigots are being trained to think. They come on two men like Ron and I shopping, or two women and they are indoctrinated to immediately wonder about our sex life. That is sick, but all these people are obsessed with what we may do sexually or in bed with our private parts.

      In years past thankfully in the past, when people would learn Ron and I were gay we would be asked … So which one of you is the woman? WTF? Really that is what gets you going to know what we did with our parts? But yes that was the constant go to of the right wing haters … they put their penis in the other persons butt, or in their mouth oh my gods!!! That was the drive behind sodomy laws. But then someone figured out that hey, straight couples do that also. Oh shit, so deep republican states started rewriting the laws to say that oral and butt sex between straight couples were legal but oral and butt sex between same sex guys was illegal. That was what got Lawrence in Texas made an illegal law by SCOTUS, it applied to only man on man but exempted man on woman sex of the same type.

      So you are very correct, that is what they are going after. It started now with abortion. Matt Walsh a prominent right winger said if a woman is not willing and ready to have a baby, they shouldn’t have sex! No matter what. In his mind (I posted that earlier) if a woman wants / allows sex with vagina and penis they must be willing to have a baby. WTF. That disregards the feelings and pleasures of the act and of women. This what it is all about, denying women any sexual pleasure. Notice he doesn’t attack the man who is involved does he? It is all about if a woman has sex for any reason even rape, she must accept the risk of being pregnant. Now it is any contraception they are going after. Again, these things do not affect the males in this act, only the females. Why are these same law makers not screaming about increasing penalties on rape or increasing funds for processing rape kits? What does this have to do with the topic of the post, it all comes down to sex.

      Why is it trans women the right wants to talk about. They seem unconcerned about trans men. It all goes back to the right wings obsession with what is between a person’s legs and what they are doing with them. Women to the right wing are not important, so what if they want to claim they are men, the right laughs it off. But a man with that grand valuable penis saying they are a woman scares the crap out of them. It impacts their view of masculinity. Why is this important? Remember Josh Hawley the fist in the air guy who ran away from the Jan 6th rioters? He wrote a book and is campaigning on men are not masculine enough.

      Because that is how they view gay sex. They don’t see it as a wonderful loving giving event of two people who adore each other and who want to give pleasure to each of them. They see it as a conquest, an act of submission or even violence. One lessor male submitting to the more dominate male who uses them. Even as I typed that sentence, I cringed thinking of so many right wingers getting off on it. They see the males in a gay relationship in the view of one alpha top having his way with his … “woman”. And that is how these people see their relationship with their wives and girlfriends. They are having their way with them. That is so scary to me. Really it is all about the male’s pleasure with them. They have no clue about how it can be about both or all people’s pleasure.

      One last thing. I don’t know if they are terrified if they don’t please their female partners enough or even try. I don’t know if they are jealous of the sexual relationships of same sex couples. What I do know is it is on their minds constantly is that women might not need them. Ted Cruz when he was AG in Texas tried to make dildos illegal. WTF. Really? Was his wife so disappointed in him in bed she resorted to them? But this is the mindset of the Republican radical right, they want to control everything you do with the parts of you below the waist.

      Sorry for the graphic parts but it is important to understand just how over the top and controlling the republicans want to be. Any woman wanting to cross state lines in a red state will have to provide an immediate pee test verification she is not pregnant. Hugs
