THE 'GOOD NEWS' - TURN OR BURN

From the church's Facebook page.

H/T to Jim Burroway at Box Turtle Bulletin.

Perverted lifestyle. Would that be a life that ignores Jesus' commandment to care for the poor, widows, orphans, elderly, prisoners, hungry, outcasts . . . . .

Or would that mean the right wing Republicans (see first definition of Perverted: Corrupt).

Further down the post on BTB it reads:

By the way, the church’s facebook page is a riot with comments. A comment posted by the page owner says:

No comments will be deleted. Instead they are a testimony against you recorded in heaven to be used in heaven. Have at it.


So that proves it. The good news is that there is a Book of Life and God reads it. The bad news is that it's Facebook.

For St. Laurence it was "Turn and burn."

Grandmère Mimi said...

Whatever the community intended, the sign is a perversion of the Gospel.

Erika Baker said...

I actually agree with every word.
Note that they're not saying "their" perverted lifestyle but "a" perverted lifestyle.

I happen to find it perverted to persecute others for their perceived sins and to be so frightfully obsessed with other people's sex lives.

Only - I know that God will be compassionate and these idiots won't burn if they're not turning.

Erika, how clever of you to tease out the true meaning of the sign!

JCF said...

There are few perversions more detestable than homophobia.

Cathy said...

Wot Erika and JCF said.

Erika and JCF are right on target. And naturally I agree with Cathy, our Woman of Wisdom! You're one of them also, Mimi.

In a way, I'm sorry I posted the sign. I dislike having it on my blog. It gives me a sick feeling each time I look at it.
