Media missed the point of “Obama in Pee Pee”

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

For the past three days, Glenn has been trying to make a point about the Constitution, but the media seems to be missing it. Not surprisingly, the media and the left flew into outrage mode over Glenn’s placing of a fake Obama into a fake jar of urine. They have said that he’s trying to make money and get his name in the paper again. That he’s trying to rile up the left by taking the President and desecrating his image. But the truth is, Glenn has always been about trying to educate through entertainment, but the media once again wants to focus on the presentation and not on the message.

Unlike most cable news commentators, Glenn has never been one to just sit behind a desk and read off a teleprompter. It works great for a lot of successful TV personalities, but not Glenn. Instead, he’ll often use props, chalkboards, live animals, and other tools to make his point. His ability to entertain the audience while talking about complex and often depressing economic and political issues is a big reason why he became such a popular personality on television and radio.

So on Tuesday night when Glenn wanted to talk about the Constitutionally protected right for an artist to paint Barack Obama as Jesus Christ on the cross, of course he would use a lot of crazy props to make his point.

He used paintings from Jackson Pollack, Rubens, and Picasso to point out that even though he’s not particularly impressed by the art and some would find images of naked people uncomfortable, the Constitution protects a person’s right of freedom of expression. Even something Glenn finds personally offensive, like Michael D’Antuono’s painting of Obama in the pose of Jesus being crucified, is Constitutionally protected. At the same time, when Glenn puts a toy Obama in a mason jar filled with yellow liquid in order to artistically express himself, that’s constitutionally protected as well.

“Art is in the eye of the beholder and this guy has a right to do this. I think its offensive. I don’t think it’s close to reality but whatever floats your boat. I support his right to do exactly that. I agree with him that people who are upset should not trump his right to be able to do it and be able to hang it wherever he wants – as long as its wanted there,” Glenn said Tuesday night.

“That document (The Constitution) says I can’t stop him, and the spirit of that document is that I shouldn’t try,” he said.

Glenn went into further detail on radio Thursday morning. “Why did I do this? To make sure that we were consistent on the Constitution. That if we say it’s wrong that you should be able to make fun of the prophet Mohammed, then we have to then say it’s constitutionally protected to make fun of Jesus Christ. It’s constitutionally protected if you’re an artist or you’re a clown or you’re a bum,” he said.

“The only speech worth protecting are those things we find offensive. And I made this (“Obama in Pee Pee”) to ask the left after the monologue of we have to protect art, we have to protect speech. All speech, and the speech that we find most offensive is the one that you really have to stand up for.”

But most stories in the media have missed this point entirely or chosen to bury it in order to focus on the plastic toy in fake urine and the supposed outrage.

Unfortunately, the media also missed the story that the money raised from the auction is benefitting Mercury One’s “Hope for the Holidays” campaign. The media simply says “Glenn Beck is selling it on eBay” with no mention of the charity component.

By ignoring the charity, the media continues to try and paint Glenn as some selfish and phony pied piper who is trying to squeeze as much money out of his fans as possible. This is simply untrue. While Glenn was initially making a point about Constitutional rights, Glenn took the media attention and has been trying to turn it into something to help others.

One last point the most news stories have not reported: Artist Michael D’Antuono appeared on Glenn’s show Wednesday night and talked to Glenn at length about his art, and even said that his impressions of Glenn were wrong and he found him to be a reasonable man.

“As much as I’m making a point with ‘Obama in Pee Pee’, I’m not stupid I know Michael Moore will tweet about it and that will be good for my business,” Glenn told D’Antuono. “I believe in what I’m doing, you believe in what your work and what you’re doing but it doesn’t hurt.

D’Antuono told Glenn that he did very much believe in his work and what he was expressing, but acknowledged that the controversy and conversation that comes along with his artistic expression “doesn’t hurt”.

As the first portion of the interview came to a close, D’Antuono shook Glenn’s hand and said “You’re a very reasonable man” and added “I’m shocked”. Glenn laughed and ended up keeping D’Antuono on for an extra segment, and they ended up talking about how Americans can no longer have honest conversations.

“I consider what I do to be like circus performer art. And part of it is to shake people and wake them up and then get them to have a conversation. And maybe what you do and I do takes the conversation and pushes into an ugly place and so we can’t. But I would like to think the reason why we don’t have these conversations is that there aren’t enough people on either side that are seen in the media and so we can’t,” Glenn told D’Antuono.

So let’s recap. Defending the Constitution? Buried or ignored. Charity component? Nope, the media wants Glenn to push the image of Glenn as a selfish conman rather than a charitable entertainer. Reasonable man who wants to have an honest conversation? Zip. Zero. Nadda. No one in the media wants to call Glenn Beck “reasonable”.

No, rather than having an honest conversation the media once again goes for the easy, lazy headlines that make fun of Glenn and call out the antics rather than the deeper message and substance behind entertainment.

Have you stopped listening to the mainstream media yet?

    Glenn you achieved your goal in exceptional detail. Mind you its not that the media missed the point, the leftist MSM ‘does not care’ one iota for what you or anyone says who is not given a speal or line by the administration.

    All others are enemies of the state and to be scorned and discredited however possible.

    Glenn did you honestly think they would report it as you intended. Now if they replaced Obama’s image in the portrait showing him as Jesus with someone like Che, and you placed Obama in Pee then it wouldn’t make sense nor would it had made sense if you would had place Che in pee when Obama was portrayed as Jesus. When I watched what you did I knew how this would play out and I’m sure you did too. It was a great medium to show the concept of what you where trying to bring across.

    Corey, Jesus advocated agency. Socialism strips man of his freedom and right to choose. This is contrary to the gospel. Jesus was sent here to be the perfect EXAMPLE of what we should follow, not the Enforcer. He taught that we were to succor the poor and that inasmuch as we do to the least of men we do to Him. However, no where in our Heavenly Father’s doctrine does it state that a federal government is to rob us of our earnings, skim at least 60% off the top for the bureaucrats to pocket then redistribute it to the lazy in exchange for votes. Sorry, but that’s the truth.

    Corey, you are understanding the part where we are commanded to care for the poor, but losing the part that the whole point of this existence is our choices and what we do with what we have been taught by The Savior. If you will recall, the government is the one who persecuted Jesus the most while He was on this earth. The government is NOT the good guy. Not then. Not now. We the people are the ones who practice charity, benevolence and love.

  • corey williams

    Explain how socialism strips man of his freedom and right to choose. Jesus taught that life is the most important thing and it is how you treat people that matters most. Capitalism is all about profit mergen and the bottom line over everything else.

    Corey…Are you serious? You don’t understand how government dictating every portion of your life strips you of agency?

    You do understand that Socialism is not a goverment it is a economic system. just like ddemocracy is a goverment and capitalism is a economic system. Your to caugth up on goverment it the ideal of socialism that your not getting. It’s everybody put in equal work and get equal profit out of it. Instead we have a working class in america who are being exploited by the coperations.

  • corey williams

    look at south america. The problem is that you are confusing communism whith socialism. one is a goverment the other is an economic system. In south america they have a democracy as there government and socialism as there economic system. And there economy is booming.

    You have know idea what he was talking about do you. He was talking about salvation not taking wealth. Which goes with what he was talking about inMathew6 19 24 “Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust[a] destroy and where thieves break in and steal, 20 but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. “The eye is the lamp of the body. So, if your eye is healthy, your whole body will be full of light, but if your eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light in you is darkness, how great is the darkness!“ No one can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and money.
    In fact used the old testament to teach out of which says this in Proverbs 1 8-19 Listen, my son, to your father’s instruction and do not forsake your mother’s teaching.They are a garland to grace your head and a chain to adorn your neck. My son, if sinful men entice you, do not give in to them. If they say, “Come along with us; let’s lie in wait for innocent blood, let’s ambush some harmless soul; let’s swallow them alive, like the grave, and whole, like those who go down to the pit; we will get all sorts of valuable things and fill our houses with plunder; cast lots with us; we will all share the loot” my son, do not go along with them, do not set foot on their paths; for their feet rush into evil,they are swift to shed blood. How useless to spread a net where every bird can see it! These men lie in wait for their own blood; they ambush only themselves! Such are the paths of all who go after ill-gotten gain; it takes away the life of those who get it.
    In fact when Jesus and his followers where about personal giving and not the government doing the job for them. In fact I made a list of things that Jesus and his followers said and did that are anti-socialist in nature.
    Things Jesus and his disciples look down upon that socialist do.
    1. Holding people at gun point and stealing their money in the name of fairness.
    2 Corinthians 9:7
    Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.
    2. He wanted people to give money not of feeling guilt but out of love.
    Mark 12:41-44
    And he sat down opposite the treasury and watched the people putting money into the offering box. Many rich people put in large sums. And a poor widow came and put in two small copper coins, which make a penny. And he called his disciples to him and said to them, “Truly, I say to you, this poor widow has put in more than all those who are contributing to the offering box. For they all contributed out of their abundance, but she out of her poverty has put in everything she had, all she had to live on.”
    3. He wants people to give in secret and not boast but socialist countries can’t help but boast about them steeling from the rich.
    Matthew 6:1-4
    “Beware of practicing your righteousness before other people in order to be seen by them, for then you will have no reward from your Father who is in heaven. “Thus, when you give to the needy, sound no trumpet before you, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may be praised by others. Truly, I say to you, they have received their reward. But when you give to the needy, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, so that your giving may be in secret. And your Father who sees in secret will reward you.
    4. Jesus own brother said that faith without works is dead but yet you want us to believe Jesus was a socialist who believe it is the governments job to do works for the poor.
    James 2:14-17
    What good is it, my brothers, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can that faith save him? If a brother or sister is poorly clothed and lacking in daily food, and one of you says to them, “Go in peace, be warmed and filled,” without giving them the things needed for the body, what good is that? So also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead.
    5. Paul the guy Jesus picked after his death said if you don’t work you don’t eat but yet socialism breeds laziness because socialist tell the poor and lazy it is ok we will take care of you for life.
    2 Thessalonians 3:10
    For even when we were with you, we would give you this command: If anyone is not willing to work, let him not eat.
    6. Paul also said this which sounds like he was talking to one of you occupiers.
    2 Corinthians 8:12
    For if the readiness is there, it is acceptable according to what a person has, not according to what he does not have.
    7 you take bible verses out of context like Matthew 19:23-24 “I tell you the truth, it is hard for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven. Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.” Put it into context it talks about following God and giving up everything for him when he demands it. The rich man didn’t fail because he was rich he failed because he would not do what Jesus said to do and in context you can see that.
    16 Just then a man came up to Jesus and asked, “Teacher, what good thing must I do to get eternal life?”
    17 “Why do you ask me about what is good?” Jesus replied. “There is only One who is good. If you want to enter life, keep the commandments.”
    18 “Which ones?” he inquired.
    Jesus replied, “‘You shall not murder, you shall not commit adultery, you shall not steal, you shall not give false testimony, 19 honor your father and mother,’[a] and ‘love your neighbor as yourself.’[b]”
    20 “All these I have kept,” the young man said. “What do I still lack?”
    21 Jesus answered, “If you want to be perfect, go, sell your possessions and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.”
    22 When the young man heard this, he went away sad, because he had great wealth.
    23 Then Jesus said to his disciples, “Truly I tell you, it is hard for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of heaven. 24 Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of God.”
    25 When the disciples heard this, they were greatly astonished and asked, “Who then can be saved?”
    26 Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”
    27 Peter answered him, “We have left everything to follow you! What then will there be for us?”
    28 Jesus said to them, “Truly I tell you, at the renewal of all things, when the Son of Man sits on his glorious throne, you who have followed me will also sit on twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel. 29 And everyone who has left houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or wife[c] or children or fields for my sake will receive a hundred times as much and will inherit eternal life. 30 But many who are first will be last, and many who are last will be first.
    And just for kicks Daniel was talking about the Anti-Christ which sounds more one par with socialism than Jesus ever will be. Daniel 11:24: He shall enter peaceably even upon the fattest places of the province; and he shall do that which his fathers have not done, nor his fathers’ fathers; he shall scatter among them the prey, and spoil, and riches: yea, and he shall forecast his devices against the strong holds, even for a time.
    So no Jesus is not nor ever will be socialist.

    To corey williams…

    Please see below where I split the definition’s paragraph to highlight that socialism, while basically an economic system, is most often implemented and controlled, wait for it…BY THE STATE (that’s the government corey).

    Socialism is also the first step, after the “revolution” from capitalism, towards…guess what??? Communism!  We all know how well that’s worked out for the individual.

    Any time government (i.e. the State) determines what you can do, when you can do it, how much there is of it, etc., etc., etc., that means there is less freedom for the individual and more often than not, less of EVERYTHING for the individual.

    Face it, you can not truly love the USA and wish to live in a socialist economic environment.  The two are anathema to one another.

    World English Dictionary
    socialism  (ˈsəʊʃəˌlɪzəm) — n 1. Compare capitalism an economic theory or system in which the means of production, distribution, and exchange are owned by the community collectively,      

    usually through the state.

    It is characterized by production for use rather than profit, by equality of individual wealth, by the absence of competitive economic activity, and, usually,      

    by government determination of investment, prices, and production levels

    2. any of various social or political theories or movements in which the common welfare is to be achieved through the establishment of a socialist economic system

    Your right Corey…trickle down doesn’t work, so why do you support the trickle down King!? That’s exactly what Obama is doing….He says to give all the profits a business makes, and all the money you make to Him and the government, and THEY will then distribute it a little bit here and there to who THEY deem is worthy of it! If that’s not a trickling from the top down, I don’t know what is! 
    We who believe in Capitalism believe it this way….A person (business owner) has worked long hours with lots of sweat and tears to dig a large pond, as this pond fills with water (money) He can tell more and more neighbors who don’t have any water to come get some from his pond. When the pond is full, he then can dig more ponds in other areas, so they too can have access to water. BUT…if a drought hits (Obama/Government) and the rains are not able to replenish those ponds, they will eventually dry up, in this leaving all those who relied on that pond for water(money) to suddenly be without, turning once flourishing communities into areas of desolation!

    @Corey:disqus : Stop being purposefully ignorant!

    Jesus telling the rich to give away their riches is not socialist! He didn’t say to vote to have a government TAKE from everyone and distribute it inefficiently through bureaucracy.

    If anything YOU ARE PROVING THE POINT with that scripture because he says you “lay up teasures for yourself in heaven” by giving away your wealth purposefully.

    If the government taxes a rich person and gives it to the poor, the government removes that rich person’s ability to give charity, thus removing his ability to “lay up” treasures in heaven for himself.

    It both takes away the ability to be charitable for the rich and the ability to be humble/thankful for the poor (as the poor “expect” entitlements instead of humbly asking for charity).

He paints a clearer picture after he said that here in Matthew 6:25-34 therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes? Look at how the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?
    And why do you worry about clothes? See how the lilies of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass in the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? So do not worry, saying “what shall we drink?” Or “What shall we drink? Or “what shall we wear? For the pagans run after these things, and you heavenly father knows that you need them. But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow for, tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of it’s own.
    So instead of Jesus being a socialist here he something that goes against what socialist do which is worry about one instead of God you guys believe money is everything but don’t look to the being that has true power. That is why he warns rich people not because being rich is evil or having more money than someone else is evil but because you can lose reliance of God and then start forgetting God has your back then losing faith in Jesus. As for the conversation I am done if you still don’t get it than you never will. Please stop lying about my Lord and savior.

    The Pee Pee jar is pure genuis and a perfect illustration of the lack of humor of the left when it comes to comparing apples to apples.  Well, I thought it was funny.  America has changed drastically in the last 12 years and more so in the last four years.  The next four years will be a huge test for the country and hopefully the increased pain, that I think we are going to endure, will bring about common sense and get us back to principles that made the country great.  Anybody with a brain must know that bigger government and more taxes cannot solve our problems, yet this seems to be what you voted for.

    Being a college dropout make one an idiot nor will having a college degree make someone extremely smart. I have a college degree and have known many people without one who are smarter than I ever hope to be. I have also known people with higher degrees who are dumber than dirt. It just means they could perform in college well enough to pass. About all it takes is being able to recite what is in the books. I got a college degree because I wanted to be a programmer.

    I guess you would say that Bill Gates is stupid too since he is a college dropout.

    There are many people in this country who have had great success and never even stepped into a college. And there are complete failures who have gone on to receive PHDs.

    Cory – in reference to the bible verse and YOUR view of it’s meaning – not a socialism/capitalism issue.
     
    I understand that parable to mean something a little different.  I think that Jesus was telling us that (whether or not you are rich or poor – God is the maker of us all) nothing we DO earns our salvation.
    The RICH man is often blind to his spiritual POVERTY because he is proud of
    his accomplishments, has contented himself with his wealth and in a way made those riches his god.  (You can’t serve two gods.) Jesus was trying to show the  young rich man the trueway to the kingdom of God.

    Glenn, sadly I believe that you are just pissing in the wind!  Exposing the hypocrisy of the left is not going to faze them one bit.  The left is incapable of introspection.  We are now at the point wherein only a complete meltdown of our economic system will make any impression on them.  And we have mighty forces arrayed to prevent that meltdown as long as possible (the Fed, for example).  I believe that our only chance of saving this great country depends upon us picking up the pieces after Obamafication occurs.  We have lost control of so many of the institutions which underpin our Republic that only a severe crisis will provide us with the opportunity to take them back.

    “Capitalism is all about profit mergen and the bottom line over everything else.”

    According to Marx. Who coined the term capitalism, FYI, since there wasn’t a word for it before. Since it’s just what everyone did. Naturally. Get it, yet?

    “Capitalism” is what happens when free people are free to do what they want in an economy. Period.

    (Oh, and “mergen”? Really? “Typo” doesn’t cover that kind of error; we’re obviously not dealing with the sharpest tool in the shed.)

    When I saw Obama in the urine water I thought it was part of his voodoo ritual.

    If Mr. Beck really understood the Constitution, he would be screaming bloody murder for the extra-judicial killing of three Americans with drone strikes. Instead, Beck embraced the killing of al Awaki even though it was in clear violation of the 5th and 14th Amendments.

    S.E. Cupp has been making this case, but Beck? He doesn’t understand the Constitution any better than any other high school graduate. He is a fraud selling snake oil — or racist symbolism in this case — to gullible and back-woods racists and other reactionaries. In other words, another day on the job for Mr. Beck.

    There is no doubt all can express themselves under the Constitution unless they wish to do harm to another’s rights. The Leftist Media’s problem is, they only report what is beneficial to them as to harm another’s character who is opposition to their theology. I didn’t like the impressions given on Glenn’s shows and ended up turning them off, that was my choice. Does this mean I won’t watch Glenn’s show again, no it doesn’t. Their is variety with Glenn but it doesn’t mean I will watch every show faithfully and blindly. He has a right to put Obama in a jar of fake pee pee if he likes, I just found the whole thing distateful to watch. I agree with the Supreme Court that one can burn and jump on the American Flag but that doesn’t mean I have to watch it happen. Glenn certainly did wake people up to what the 1st Amendment is all about and perhaps people did need this wake-up call to shake them out of their comfort zone.

    Yep!  I have quit listening to the Liberal Media and the XOF media.  They can’t tell the truth no matter how long you listen.  About the only one that does, IMHO is Greta but even she has her own agenda.  So, I quit listening to the garbage they were trying to resell and when I want to know anything, I search it out on the internet and I have learned to be very selective in what I read and who I take the word of.  I don’t consider it entertainment.  I consider it Life Saving and it is my life that it is saving.

    If we had believed all of the junk out there on the Internet during this last election, we would have rioted when it turned exactly the opposite of the reports.  It depends on who you trust.  I trust facts, not gossip and the opinions of most Americans and really the world at large, is all based on what they see and hear on TV or the wildest extremes in both political parties.  What this nation needs is a Honest, Morally Strong, 3rd party.  Kick all of the old koots out, vet everyone that is allowed to run and feret out what they really believe but take it a step further.  Check them out as to CONSTITUTIONALITY of their basis for seeking office.

     That’s funny, that is what christianity has done: control everyone’s lives. Burning witches homosexuals, atheists. The pope used to have his own army and controlled many states. You people support the ability of the government to detain someone for a lifetime without any oversight or evidence. to assassinate anyone without evidence. all state secrets.

    Why did jesus create all that food for the people, why didn’t he tell them to get a job and get medical care?

    Omegaomni, what is funny is your comment. I actually laughed aloud at your complete ignorance. Taking Christ’s message and twisting it to advocate socialism is ignorant and desperate. Your advocating of socialism is just laziness. You minutely grasp the concept of caring for the poor, but rather than doing charitable acts yourself you pawn your responsibilities off on to an uncaring government. And Christ only fed the masses once at the Sermon on the mount because the people came to hear his words and had no access to food they could acquire on their own. Jesus also advocated industry, hard work, and being honest. Welfare creates none of that. And if you want to bring up Chrisitan cruelty can you fin something a little more recent than the crusades? Most Christians will agree that the crusades were not something that Jesus would have condoned. And, I am neither Protestant, Evangelical or any of the other things you accuse me of. Your startling ignorance and bias is truly sad.

    Corey… you’ve got to know Jesus existed, and is who He said He was, to understand His words.  That would require study but the “camel hair” and “needle” thingy is easy to discern, or at least it should be, even for non-believers.  It means, it’s more difficult to give up worldly possessions (to FOLLOW HIM not Government) for one class of people than it is for the other… Today’s Lefties/Commies are merely twisting His words to justify stealing from the rich.  In other words, your guise of “good intentions” is leading the blind to hell.

     By referring to that passage with the interpretation you have offered, you, like so many others, have completely missed the point of what He was trying to say. It’s like blaming the gun that the murderer used to commit his crime. The gun can be used for murder but it can also be used to protect against that same evil.

    Money is not evil, Corey. It is a tool. When it is used in that way, it complies with scripture far more fully than any misguided, foolish interpretation in which the ascetic hermit is elevated above all others for his self abnegation. The pursuit of money for the sake of selfish accumulation IS wrong. In this case, it is the object of the pursuit that makes it evil, not the pursuit itself.

    By interpreting this scripture as a statement about money (period) without the slightest delving into what He was saying with the parable is exactly why Christ spoke in parables; only the basest, confusing interpretation could be made by those who saw the story only through words. Without the application of the filter of faith, the story is meaningless and the conclusion of the reader is just plain wrong.

    True Christians should be striving for a “socialism of the heart”. How, exactly, does removing personal responsibility for charity through government sponsored theft a “Christian” pursuit. It is as foolish and pointless as the pursuit of money for selfish ends. The Savior’s message is personal and to be applied personally. Your support of socialism on a societal level is not Christian any more than the thief who died on the cross beside Him would have been justified if he had stolen from those he deemed to be “rich” in order to redistribute it to those he deemed to be “poor”.

    The thief would not have been qualified to enter the kingdom of God simply because he felt justified in his actions by his willingness to take it upon himself to determine who had accumulated wealth illicitly. Had he applied his beliefs through the commission of crimes in order to serve what only he determined to be the greater good, it would make him no less culpable for those crimes. The vote of the beneficiary of his “generosity” to excuse his actions on the basis of what he intended to be the result is irrelevant.

    The choice of the Christian to ascribe Christian principles to a government that seeks for little more than power, domination and subjugation has been deceived. Apply your principles personally and teach others to do the same. Stop supporting theft and perversion of Christian ideals in the pursuit of “What Would Jesus Do” and thinking you have the slightest handle on what He would approve of. The very fact that you have fallen into the trap deliberately intended for the evil and those of little faith by His teaching the principle in parable should tell you which side of the line you have fallen on.

    No, I don’t believe you are evil. I DO however, believe that you have allowed yourself to be subverted by a church that interprets Christs’ admonitions as applicable only to society codified laws. It’s just plain wrong and you are unknowingly supporting those who would use that support to perpetuate the goals of those who are truly, knowingly and absolutely committed to the expression of evil through the subjugation of their fellow man through enforced “charity”.

Are dogs allowed in the store if they are not seeing eye dogs.  He said, we are not allowed to ask them.  We have to let them all in.  Some dogs are companions and must be with the owner for confort care.  Really! Isnt that pretty much what all dogs are?  Im going to get the biggest St. Benard that druels like a pig waiting for slop.  See if that does not offend someone.  In a grociery store, really.
