"Stupid is as stupid does."
One of America's
greatest theologians, Kurt Vonnegut, recollected, "An Indianapolis cousin
of mine, who was also a high school classmate, did very badly at the University
of Michigan while I did badly at Cornell. His father asked him what the
trouble was, and he made what I consider an admirable reply: 'Don't you know,
Father? I'm dumb!' It was the truth."
After so many incompetent
Presidents in a row, it boggles the mind to see the USA on the verge of
electing a pathological liar or Presbyterian who is pathologically arrogant to
continue the trend.
pathologically arrogant Presbyterian in the running says it's because so many
Americans are stupid.
I think he has a
Just look at who
we've sent to DC lately; and look at who's probably gonna be next in line.
Yeah, I think
he's on to something.
He may have
gotten it from Kurt who may have gotten it from Jesus; for Jesus talked about
"fools" who don't pay attention to Him on matters of faith and
morality and all of the below.
Read the last
several verses of Matthew 7.
Jesus used a
Greek word transliterated as moros
- Yep! It is as it sounds! - to describe people who don't
follow Him by the book.
So how is America
working without God in government, courtroom, classroom, commerce, too many

called the PCUSA know all about that.

PCUSA needs a collective exorcism.
All I know about
what I don't know why PCUSAers come off as sooooooo
stupid today is that they keep distancing themselves from their
heritage and wonder why people are leaving 'em quicker than poop flows through
From Genesis to
Revelation in the book that doesn't have much authority in the PCUSA like most other "sister"
mainline denominations - C'mon, it's O.K. to be honest about what
you don't believe anymore. You won't go to hell for it. Oops.
I meant you won't go to jail for it! - the message from Father, Son, and Holy
Spirit is clear, concise, consistent, and commanding: "Return to Me
and I will restore you. If not, not."
That doesn't mean
getting everything down to a science and being right about everything.
If that were true or possible, it would
negate the soteriological intention of the incarnation.
It just means
people who really love Jesus by the book pray and try to be in/through/for
Jesus by the book instead of always contending with Jesus by the book.
It just means
exegesis over eisegesis.
It just means not
acting so stupid when it comes to stuff that God's already revealed in Jesus by
the book that's been upheld, confirmed, and advocated, more than less, by 2K
years of Biblical, confessional, constitutional, historical, traditional, and
common sense Christianity.
Getting back to
the pathologically arrogant Presbyterian running for President who keeps saying
America is messed up because there are so many stupid Americans in DC, I've
gotta confess I see a striking parallel in the PCUSA.
Actually, my mind
continues to be boggled by the seizure of the PCUSA by people so far to the
left of our heritage that it makes the left in DC look like BB guns compared to
heavy artillery or Twiggy standing next to Dolly Parton.
The way left in
the PCUSA has pret' near complete control over the franchise.
The remnant of
churches and pastors who still embrace and advocate its heritage increasingly lose
influence because of exits and attrition and fatigue and...
Annnnnnnd while I believe
our Lord can do anything that He wants to do because He has, it appears a
resurrection of its heritage is as probable as the prognostication in Back to the Future 2.
There is no
reconciliation possible in the PCUSA between its increasingly way left majority
and those in the increasingly decreasing minority who still embrace its
heritage aren't, uh, reconcilable.
Only a person who
thinks Miley Cyrus is a good role model for young girls can't see that.
possibility is conciliation - live and let live - you do your thing and I'll do
my thing - and only then can we share the same tax benefits and pension
programs and stuff like that.
confessional, constitutional, historical, traditional, and common sense
Christians in the PCUSA don't have the muscle aka votes to honor Jesus by the
The way left has
the muscle to force its ideology on 'em all.
And if they do,
what will those who still believe in Jesus by the book do?
So here is a word not threat or
I don't apologize to readers from other franchises because you're gonna face
the same challenge if you're a "sister" franchise to the PCUSA.
If the way left
in the PCUSA succeeds by
official judicatorial action in their obvious desire to go
Kenyonesque and force all of its churches and pastors to condone, advocate,
participate, and preside upon request at same-sex nuptials or moves per
capita from a voluntary apportionment to a mandatory tax or abandons its
Biblical, confessional, constitutional, historical, traditional, and common
sense Christology, Don Meredith will start singing long before the end of the
4th quarter, "Turn out the lights! The party's over!"
Truth is the way
left in the PCUSA, mirroring the ideological fascists of the way left and way
right in America, don't want to, uh, coexist.

If the way left
succeeds with their not-so-secret-anymore ideological fascism (go to the right
column and click on "Labeling and the Rise of Ideological Fascism"),
they will have pounded the last nails into the coffin of the PCUSA.
That's not a
threat or warning.
It's a word.
PCUSAers are sooooooo incredibly
and increasingly stupid.
shooting the golden goose that...
distancing themselves from the only One who can save 'em.
That's just sooooooo stupid.
