It’s funny, because it’s true:

  1. Jesus was basically an apocalyptic preacher who taught asceticism in preparation for the end times, which he said were coming within the lifetime of his disciples living in the First Century. I suppose there is a bit of humor in the fact that he was wrong, but that his devotees are now stuck spending the rest of human history trying to circumvent his draconian rules. Those rules only seem to pop up as worth talking about when it comes to attacking infidels… but that’s the point of organized religion.

    I’ve made that point about divorce and remarriage often, as many have. If nothing else, there is real humor in listening to Newt Gingrich talking about how we need to protect the institution of marriage in accordance with Christian mores.

    You act like three marriages and two divorces for infidelity is not a Christian thing. Oh, wait, he was a Southern Baptist for those first two marriages and divorces. Then he converted to the Catholic Church with his current wife, but since he wasn’t a Catholic for those first two, they don’t count. What a great religion they have going there!

    😉

    Peace.

  3. There was nothing draconian about Christ. To the woman caught in adultery his admonition was “Go and sin no more,” without so much as a threatening “or else” tagged on.

    Really? I guess it was someone else who lost his shit at a fig tree that had the temerity not to bloom in it’s off season. Who said that homosexuals were going to hell. Who supported slavery. Who supported the entire old testament.

  5. Never sinning again is not draconian? I stand not corrected.

    The Jesus of the Bible (who knows what the hell the real Jesus said, if he existed?) did not condemn that particular woman, but he condemned many, many people to hell. And he condoned the stoning of children who disrespect their parents. As far as what I was alluding to, the Jesus as presented in the Gospels calls for living a puritanical life, giving up material goods, etc. in expectation of judgment day, which never came because he was a false prophet. So, again, draconian.

    Leguru… Perhaps I owe Newt an apology. He has never been divorced, his ex-wives were merely whores living in Protestant sin. I do stand corrected there.
