Blessed are the Bigots
Christianity Today interviews Joe the Plumber, bringing our prediction of a porn video that much closer:
People don’t understand the dictionary — it’s called queer. Queer means strange and unusual. It’s not like a slur, like you would call a white person a honky or something like that. You know, God is pretty explicit in what we’re supposed to do — what man and woman are for. Now, at the same time, we’re supposed to love everybody and accept people, and preach against the sins.
We count greed, wrath, envy and pride, with a strong case for lust, a tossup for gluttony, and sloth something of a judgment call. Does Joe ever work?
I’ve had some friends that are actually homosexual. And, I mean, they know where I stand, and they know that I wouldn’t have them anywhere near my children.
Fair enough. We wouldn’t have Mr. Wurzelbacher anywhere near our children, either.
