Since the Ashley Madison scandal broke, I have noticed a distinct lack of condemnation from you rightwing christians.
Where are all the youtube hate videos against the subscribers practicing adultery?
Where are the droves of protestors picketing AshleyMadison.com like Planned Parenthood?
It’s pretty clear where Jesus stands with cheating on your spouse. In case you missed the Commandment of “Thou shalt not covet they neighbor’s wife”, Jesus laid it out:
In Mathew 5:27-30 he said if you even look at another woman with desire, then cut out your eye because it’s better to “lose one of your members than to have your whole body go to hell”.
Lust > Cheat > Hell. Pretty straightforward. There were other things He directly condemned, like divorce. Yet He was most clear on His biggest pet peeve: excess wealth.
Yet those are three things that today’s rightwing Christian doesn’t care about.
Massive greed? That’s called “prosperity gospel” now. The parable of Lazarus? They root for the rich guy in hell.
Divorce? Adultery? Child Molestation? whoopsey-daisies. No big whoop.
But gays and abortions? That’s where they burst arteries! Two issues Jesus said NOTHING about. Both of those things existed during His time. If they are the epitome of evil, you’d think they’d at least warrant a mention. But nothing. …
In fact, Santorum, Huckabee, Cruz, et. al have said nothing about the AshleyMadison scandal or a word of condemnation to their millions of subscribers. Maybe they are worried about alienating some supporters, but that means their virulent rants on nonissues become even more meaningless. It’s almost like they are full of something….
Clearly there is no righteous, religious hate espoused for those who abuse or leave their marriages like there is for those who are in stable, homosexual relationships. Despite what the Bible says, these guys SWEAR to me that they know exactly who Jesus hates.
And I find it absolutely amazing that it always happens to coincide with their preconceived prejudices. Go figure.
