Pete Buttigieg

Every once in a while I am tempted to switch over to a am news talk radio show.  I used to find them fun. Now I can’t bring myself to listen for more than a few minutes. Case in point is when I turned on one such show recently.  It was a guy talking about

being religious.

This Limbaugh want-to-be wanted said that he is not in favor of people picking the parts of the Bible they want and ignore the parts they don’t want to follow. Sounds reasonable.

Except that every single fundamentalist does this.  They don’t believe they do. Yet they must do mental gymnastics to go around some things.  The acceptance of concubines and letting men rape their daughters. The Bible says that if someone commits adultery, then they and the spouse they cheated on must be killed. (Do they only know the parts of the Bible that is fun to quote!)

He said something about following what Jesus said. If that’s the case, he did not say anything about homosexuality.

So, unless you vilify those that get a divorce as much as someone that is gay. Mark 10:11-12 states: Whosoever putteth away his wife, and marrieth another, committeth adultery: and whosoever marrieth her that is put away from her husband committeth adultery, then you are cherry picking your Bible.

However, I do not disagree with this guy. Believing that you should embrace all aspects of a religion you belong to is the reason….

I stopped going to church.
