Complaints from the right

I don't seem to blog nearly as much as I ought. I do spend a lot of time on Google+ these days. But I've decided I'd like to spend a little time answering and publicizing comments that I get on there that just leave me flummoxed. 

I read some things on line and just wonder how can anyone think that? It's just insane! How can you look at the world around you and conclude that?

Anyway, the first one is to be found here: 

Google+ Thread 1

Anti gay?  Marriage "equality" is not anit gay but pro Biblical marriage.  You must be anti Christian, Jewish, and Muslim as they all promote the idea of man and woman.

Okay, this is my first problem. Biblical marriage? That implies that the government is putting the Christian church at the center of government. That is what is wrong. I am a Mormon. I accept Christ as my Lord and Savior. However, I also support keeping God and all religion out of government. You need to accept Christ, Buddha, Mohammed, Jehovah at the center of your religion of your own free will. Any time you use your religious doctrine to tell others what they can or cannot do, I have a problem with that. 

Anti women?  obama's administration has less women working and getting paid less than during Bush's terms.  Also, until Hilary's appointment they were nearly no women in high positions and there are still few.

Yes, there are far too many white men in Obama's Administration. But that's not the point. The Republican Party is anti-woman. Let me count the ways:

  • Opposition to the Violence Against Women Act
  • Opposition to contraception and a woman's right to choose
  • Opposition to the Lilly Ledbetter Act
  • Denial that there is a pay inequity by gender
You need to re-read the Constitution because Separation of Church and State is not there, and do not bring up the Federalist Papers or some Treaty that has no real bearing.  The fact is the Framers only did not want a State Established church as is in England.

Sorry. The Separation of Church and State is there. (I suppose I could bring up the 2nd Amendment and bring up that personal ownership of guns for self defense or pleasure shooting isn't in there.) However, the issue is that the First Amendment doesn't just guarantee freedom of religion, but also freedom from religion.

That means we should not use any religion to make public decisions. That means marriage equality, abortion and contraception, women's rights, and our blind support of Israel.

Good job seeing through my disguised name and seeing that I am a man (sarcasm).  I saw plenty of racism during the last election, most from a population that believed that voting for a black man simply because he was black was alright or from many on the left that would call out any opposition against obama as racism because that would be the only reason right?  So you must be racist against latinos because you do not like Rubio. You need to go back and look at history, Jim Crowe Laws written by democrats, Civil Rights was passed with a higher percentage of the GOP voting yes as opposed to a lower percentage of democrats.

Insane. Just insane. What can I say? Jim Crow law written by Democrats. Yes, I suppose. You can talk about all the bad things Democrats did in the past, and all the good things Republicans did in the past but what does it mean? What really matters is what they are doing now. And the more I watch what Republicans are doing now all I see is hate, racism, and intolerance.

You seem confused and lost, I am glad that you go to Church, hopefully you will connect to Jesus, accept him, and realize how far the left has taken us away from his teachings and God's Word.

What can I say? All I can really respond with is this from the Book of Matthew:

 37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.
 38 This is the first and great commandment.
 39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
