It Gets Crazier

So good ole’ Louie Gohmert, Congressman from Texas took it upon himself to school pastor Barry Lynn who is the executive head of Americans United for the Separation of Church and State.  At one point in the exchange Gohmert said the following:

“Do you believe in sharing the good news that will keep people from going to Hell, consistent with Christian beliefs?”

When Lynn demurred that policy forcing beliefs on others was perhaps not wise Gohmert went on to add — “So, you do not believe somebody would go to Hell if they do not believe Jesus is the way, the truth, the life?”

Why is this man in Congress?

Well, I believe I will counter Congressman Gohmert with Mark Twain.

“Man is a Religious Animal.  He is the only Religious Animal.  he is the only animal that has the True Religion — several of them.  He is the only animal that loves his neighbor as himself and cuts his throat if his theology isn’t straight.  he has made a graveyard of the globe in trying his honest best to smooth his brother’s path to happiness and heaven….”

    So, does this mean that YOU don’t believe in sharing the good news that…? 😀

      Uh… no. Not religious. My attitude is live and let live. People want to believe in the sacred rock, the flying spaghetti monster, Jesus, Allah, whatever — knock yourself out. Just don’t proselytize to me or make laws based on the tenets of any particular sky daddy.
