Know your enemy

In this case, those who would impose the Christian fundamentalist version of sharia law (and seriously, everyone should read this):

Once Christians are in charge, according to Gary North, rather than turning the other cheek to our enemy, we “should either bust him in the chops or haul him before the magistrate, and possibly both.” North adds, “It is only in a period of civil impotence that Christians are under the rule to ‘resist not evil.’”

How far would the Reconstructionists go? North, writes, “The question eventually must be raised: Is it a criminal offence to take the name of the Lord in vain? When people curse their parents, it unquestionably is a capital crime (Exodus. 21:17). The son or daughter is under the lawful jurisdiction of the family. The integrity of the family must be maintained by the threat of death. Clearly, cursing God (blasphemy) is a comparable crime, and is therefore a capital crime (Leviticus. 24:16).”

  1. The Bachmannite Christian Fundamentalists are a product of the Koch Brothers and the John Birch Society. They are all Fascist crackpots.

  2. I say sign us up, and then stone 90% of the republicans and 60% of the christians for adultery and fornication. Once they’re buried and forgotten we can move on in a more enlightened path.

  3. Any religion comes with a package that includes all the mechanisms for running a whole society. As a matter of fact the piece in the package that has to do with God is usually pretty small, much smaller than the piece that has to do with controlling other people’s behavior, and mostly sexual behavior at that.
