Perkins: It’s Disgusting When Obama Cites Scripture

Via press release from hate group leader Tony Perkins:

This week, the president is back at it, using his Bible of convenience to justify his outrageous decree on public school bathrooms and showers. To the disgust of most Christians, Obama insisted that “my reading of Scripture tells me that [the] Golden Rule is pretty high up there in terms of my Christian belief.” Let me make a suggestion to the president: before quoting the Good Book, he should try reading what it actually says. A passage that is more relevant to the agenda that he and his administration have been consistently pushing is 1 Thessalonians 4, where Paul was quite clear where God stands on the issue:

“It is God’s will that you should be sanctified: that you should avoid sexual immorality; that each of you should learn to control your own bodyin a way that is holy and honorable, not in passionate lust like the pagans, who do not know God; and that in this matter no one should wrong or take advantage of a brother or sister.The Lord will punish all those who commit such sins, as we told you and warned you before. For God did not call us to be impure, but to live a holy life.Therefore, anyone who rejects this instruction does not reject a human being but God, the very God who gives you his Holy Spirit.” (NIV)

Folks, if the policies of this president and the anti-biblical environment they’ve fostered don’t drive you to your knees, I don’t know what will. As Jesus instructed us in Luke 18, we “always ought to pray and not lose heart.” Now is not the time to throw in the towel or throw up our hands in despair. Now is the time to redouble our efforts in prayer for our families, for our communities, and our nation. All God needs to revive America are faithful followers seeking His face and forgiveness.

call-2-fall-10-bannerOn July 3rd, FRC will be leading the nation in that cry of humble repentance in churches from coast to coast as part of Call2Fall. There’s nothing fancy about it. All we ask is that you set aside some time during worship for your congregation to get on their faces before the Lord and ask Him to renew our land. As God tells us in 2 Chronicles 7:14, “If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and forgive their sin and heal their land.” Click here to let us know you’re “in!”

  • dcurlee

    Tony our president is more of what a Christian should be. You should take a lesson

    • Harley

      I agree. God wanted Obama to be president otherwise Romney would be our president. Don’t these people get it. Now we’ll see who God wants to be our next president. Should be interesting.

      • Ernest Endevor

        He sure didn’t want Cruz.

        • IamM

          Nobody wants Cruz.

    • Balderdashing

      I agree with Perkins in one regard: Obama shouldn’t be spouting biblical scriptures–nor should ANY public official acting in an official capacity.

      But what Perkins really means is that it’s disgraceful when other Christians don’t agree with his own selective, warped, regressive interpretation of the Bible.

    • Gerry Fisher

      Ya know…whenever I see a bout of “dueling buy-bull quotes” or hear points being made about the origins of religious texts and dogma, the less I really understand what “being a good christian” means. It’s just way too malleable.

      …but I know generally what you mean. I’ll translate that as “being a good and moral person” (and they happen to use some christian mythology to frame that morality).

  • Treant

          But, also, kinda shows how the Iron Age morality of that idiot book is best stored in the garbage!

        • That really deserves to be set to music for choir and a rolicking organ accompanyment.

        • From there Elisha went up to Bethel. As he was walking along the road, some boys came out of the town and jeered at him. “Get out of here, baldy!” they said. “Get out of here, baldy!” He turned around, looked at them and called down a curse on them in the name of the Lord. Then two bears came out of the woods and mauled forty-two of the boys. And he went on to Mount Carmel and from there returned to Samaria.

          2 Kings 2:23-25

          I had a friend in school who wasn’t religious, but he liked to quote that passage (you can probably guess why).

          • Steverino

            I wouldn’t mind being mauled by two bears during Lazy Bear Weekend up at the Russian River.

            The translation used to be she bears, if I’m remembering rightly.

        • Tor

          Sorry to be morbid, but my mother only has a few more years left. I’d love to have a list of verses like that to hand to the pastor planning the funeral, saying these were her favorite verses. Just the citations. Let him look them up himself.

          • GC

            http://skepticsannotatedbible.com/

            But where does your mother stand on Christianity and the bible?
            If she’s a believer, and not hurting anyone, let her have her comfort. If other family members would want to impose a Christian funeral against her wishes, however….

          • Tor

            She is a good person and a true believer. This is only for my own private amusement. And to twist with the pastor’s mind. I don’t care for him so much.

          • Michael Rush

            Post the video ! make sure he uses this one …

            Deuteronomy 25:11
            If two men are fighting and the wife of one of them comes to rescue her husband from his assailant, and she reaches out and seizes him by his private parts , you shall cut off her hand. Show her no pity.

          We’re doing favorite funny Bible verses? Mine—

          53

          “The siege and terrible distress
          of the enemy’s attack will be so severe that you will eat the flesh of
          your own sons and daughters, whom the LORD your God has given you.

          54

          The most tenderhearted man among
          you will have no compassion for his own brother, his beloved wife, and
          his surviving children.

          55

          He will refuse to share with
          them the flesh he is devouring—the flesh of one of his own
          children—because he has nothing else to eat during the siege and
          terrible distress that your enemy will inflict on all your towns.

          56

          The most tender and delicate
          woman among you—so delicate she would not so much as touch the ground
          with her foot—will be selfish toward the husband she loves and toward
          her own son or daughter.

          57

          She will hide from them the
          afterbirth and the new baby she has borne, so that she herself can
          secretly eat them.

          I mean, it’s one thing to be a cannibal, another to eat your children, but then to not share??? ;-p~~~

  • GreenEyedLilo

    Isn’t that interesting, that our President is using Christian scripture and demonstrating his Christian faith, but this purported Christian activist still has a problem with it? Of course, Obama has also been much better at the “family values” thing than many of the GOP’s leading lights, too.

          Around 7 of the 13 letters…about half. Others just put in Paul’s mouth what they wished he would’ve said…kind of like what xtians do daily with their god.

          • Cuberly

            It’s confusing cognitive dissonance to me. Citing hatred of trans people via irrelevant biblical passages as a rationale for depriving them of their dignity in public. Doesn’t quite mesh with where a trans person needs to pee does it. Perkkkins “biblical” insinuation is that trans people shouldn’t exist.

          • billbear1961

    • And they are cherry picking quotes from a modern adaptation of a 400 year old highly politicized (for the time) English translation (King James version) of faulty translations of original Hebrew, Koin Greek, and Aramaic sources using Vulgate Latin translations when necessary. In short, what they are quoting is bullshit.

        It did turn out to be an important piece of English literature…but I’d rather quote Shakespeare.

          Almost the only thing ever written “by committee” that achieved the status of a masterpiece–although they relied a lot on Tyndale’s famous translation.

        • billbear1961

          The English Book of Common Prayer is also remarkable–I’ve always liked the prayer for the dead:

          MAN that is born of a woman hath but a short time to live, and is full of misery. He cometh up, and is cut down, like a flower; he fleeth as it were a shadow, and never continueth in one stay.

          In the midst of life we are in death: of whom may we seek for succour, but of thee, O Lord, who for our sins art justly displeased?

          Yet, O Lord God most holy, O Lord most mighty, O holy and most merciful Saviour, deliver us not into the bitter pains of eternal death.

          Thou knowest, Lord, the secrets of our hearts; shut not thy merciful ears to our prayer; but spare us, Lord most holy, O God most mighty, O holy and merciful Saviour, thou most worthy Judge eternal, suffer us not, at our last hour, for any pains of death, to fall from thee.

          FORASMUCH as it hath pleased Almighty God of his great mercy to take unto himself the soul of our dear brother here departed: we therefore commit his body to the ground; earth to earth, ashes to ashes, dust to dust; in sure and certain hope of the Resurrection to eternal life, through our Lord Jesus Christ.

        Yah, that’s not where trans people want to be or would likely have problems that way if they did.

    The difference here, the President’s use of scripture and prayer inspires me to follow those words. When Perkins uses the same words it makes me want to run screaming. The President uses those to inspire people and bring them together, Perkins uses them as a wedge to divide into groups who can be controlled.

    • ColdCountry

      This!

  • Brad Lathem

    Fuck this guy and his hateful religion. As I’ve said time and time before – I am SO sick of Christianity.

  • ColdCountry

    Some of the most “Christian” people I know – and I’m using that term in a good way – believe the same; that all of Christ’s teaching boil down to the Golden Rule. That was the one rule in our house growing up, and I can’t fault it.

    • Steverino

      Indeed, the president totally pwned Perkins on that one. Perkin’s response is to scorn the words of the person he supposedly worships, in favor of the scribblings of an acolyte.

      Well played, Mr. President.

    • Yep!

    • Treat others how you’d like to be treated, be nice to everybody and don’t judge. <– The only three truly worthwhile moral lessons from that book.

      The rest though seems to be nothing but an unending source of cherry-picking and loopholes. "But y'see, God actually WANTS us to go slaughter all those people over there…"

  • Clive Johnson

    Please allow me to quote some scripture, Tony:

  • BeaverTales

    Tony will go on believing in his own superiority as long as millions of his fellow Xtians with “the correct theology” remain conspicuously silent while he shouts out to the world that he is the only True Christian in America.

    • ColdCountry

      (And maybe even after.) I recently had this discussion with my sister, a Christian, that she and others like her need to SPEAK UP, because the world is getting the impression that every Christian in America is a member of the RR, and that they are becoming hated by many because of it.

      • m_lp_ql_m

        It’s interesting that when they do speak up, it’s always to us LGBT (and the other demographics they oppress), and not to who actually needs to hear it–those of their own ilk.

        • ColdCountry

          It’s not easy to buck your peers, especially when a lot of them are also your friends. My sister was recently squeezed out of her church – after more than 20 years of being a very active member – for being too progressive.

          • Cuberly

            I think there’s an element of uber-religous fatigue growing in the country. Part of Trump’s populism reflects this if you ask me. Sure some evangelicals kiss his ass, only because their desire for access to power over-rides any religious consistency. But it’s hardly Cruz strength religiosity driving Trump’s campaign.

          • Chucktech

            Trump’s gotta be as big an atheist as I am. He just has to be.

          • Cuberly

            I totally agree. If he’s super religious it sure as hell never shows, outside of cloying attempts at it.

            Did you see that article where Sam Harris claims Trump is the first atheist candidate for president? I just started laughing cuz i’ve felt that way since he entered the race.

            I just wish there was a SANE atheist in the race.

            “Uber-religious fatigue,” is a GREAT way to put it!

            Lol….I’ve been a long time sufferer of it.

      • BeaverTales

        Color me cynical. In my experience, the NALTs consider it sufficient to point to the bravery of MLK, then pat themselves on the back for his sacrifice while their fundie Christian brethren undermine Jesus’ true message by cherry picking the scriptures that suit them.

        Once a Martyr or two does all the real work, the rest of the group can stay comfortably seated in their pews and barkaloungers for the next few decades muttering to themselves how great their religion is, how nobody really understands them because it’s hard to be a good Christian, and how it’s all going to be okay in the End because God loves them best…we’ll all go to Heaven because they prayed for us and donated some old year-old Rice-A-Roni to a food pantry last month.

        • ColdCountry

          My cynicism toward all Christians is held at bay by the three who are in my close family and who all walk (or, in the case of my mother, walked) the walk. Some quietly, some more loudly, but they all do it. I do, however, understand the cynicism completely and know that there are many like those you describe.

          • BeaverTales

            There are exceptions, but they are clearly exceptions.

    (note### this post has been edited to reflect Paul’s dickishness.)

    “…before quoting the Good Book, he should try reading what I say it actually says.”

  • Johnny Wyeknot

    I agree with Tony.

  • Bernie

    Fundamentalists are all about quoting the Bible from just about any book other than the four Gospels which (allegedly) contain what their god-Christ actually said. What he actually said and preached can be very inconvenient for them so they focus on the other books.

    • David Walker

      That’s why they like the red letter edition. The red ink highlights what Jesus supposedly said, which, according to PerKKKins, Fischer, Robertson, &c., should be avoided at all costs. What I haven’t figured out is why so many of them use the soft leather bindings. The hard cardboard covers can do so much more damage when hitting the non-believing sinners over the head.

    • Friday

      Perkins had to fish in the ‘creatively paraphrased’ ideological ‘New International Version’ ….then tried to pick apart the ‘paraphrasing’ to try and apply Paul’s anti-Pagan bigotry to trans people peeing via …whatever assumptions make Christianists associate peeing with sex in the first place.

    the bible is pretty silent about which bathrooms trans folk should use. for 2 reasons. 1) they killed people back then who look different. and dusty old book or no, that’s wrong. 2) they didn’t have bathrooms, because it was written in the bronze age and iron age.

    • Friday

      Well, Rome did, actually. Shockingly, not segregated ones. 🙂 (The baths were a different matter. )

It was communal in every sense of the word. Modesty? HA! Maybe I’m wrong, Maybe apostle Paul was seriously pee-shy. Lord knows he had is issues with women in general.

    Anyone else notice how Mullah Perkkkins sorta clumsily conflated in this screed? He goes off about bathrooms, but then cites scripture to vilify trans people. It doesn’t really match with his initial declaration of outrage. He’s mad about the whole “bathroom controversy” but then cites sripture insinuating that trans people shouldn’t exist. Unless I’m reading this wrong that’s the impression I’m getting.

    A little reminder for Tony is that he does not have an exclusive contract with God and Tony doesn’t get to decide what is right or wrong. When Tony sides with child molester Josh Duggar and does not see the wrong in it, he is the one with a problem. You know, that whole concept of ““If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and forgive their sin and heal their land.” Yeah, that did not work for Rick Perry or Ted Cruz or anyone else that espoused that view. Christians LOVE to say that “my people” HAS to mean Christians. Well, since it appears in the OLD Testament, it can’t mean “Christians” since JC had not been born yet. So who exactly are “my people?” Hmmmm.

  • On a related note, President Obama’s approval ratings are at a three-year high and continue to rise according to Real Clear Politics averages of polls today. This bodes well for any Democratic candidate for President in November. (the yellow line is mine).

  • Both of the quotes Perkins relies most heavily on are the ones from Paul’s letters. The guy who never even met Jesus, but spent years being kicked out from town after town, city after city, because he deigned to know God’s will in all things and was obsessed with telling other people how they should live. And basically the people living in those places found him to be an insufferable asshole.

    Jesus, on the other hand, had an entirely different spin on things, most of them involving humility and minding one’s own spiritual business.

    But guys like Perkins always love the scripture lines in which one mortal human tells everyone else he knows exactly what God wants because that’s what Perkins wants to do: To claim a monopoly on all the truths based on unprovable appeals to irrefutable authority, and use it like a club to dictate how others must live.

        I did have a Children’s Illustrated Bible, pretty much a hardback cartoon version of the Bible, as a child and if you threw It might kill someone! I am a white man from the South but for whatever reason religion never took with me. My dad was even a deacon in the church and if I went with him I was in the kitchen snarfing down those communion crackers and drinking up the grape juice (no wine in that church). I may still be caught up on communion given how many of those crackers I ate!

        So I was a sacrilegious little son of a bitch at 10 and nothing has changed much since then.

  • That_Looks_Delicious

  • Acronym Jim

    “As God tells us in 2 Chronicles 7:14, ‘If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and forgive their sin and heal their land.’

    So it’s not the gays fault after all, it’s the self-proclaimed Christians! I hope people will constantly throw this scripture back in the face of every Tony, Bryan, and Pat who tries to blames us for every man-made and natural disaster.

  • 18 Luke also includes some interesting passages, including the one about the Pharisee, who was rebuked for bragging about how much more pious he was than everyone else and putting himself above the humble forgiveness-seeking tax collector. And then another section about how those who seek wealth shall not enter the Kingdom of God…

    Like I said in my other comment, it’s fascinating how Perkins puts so much more emphasis on the words of Paul, the man who never actually met Jesus and who spent all his time judging the moral faults of others and not on the Gospels.

    The Bible is generally used like a pile of chips in a poker game….”I’ll see your quote and raise you mine”. The cobbled-together 3rd century book was written by so many authors, with so many different viewpoints, that you can always find one fictional passage that contradicts another. Only a crazy person (and that includes Obama as well as Perkins) would try to use it as a basis for rational argument.

  • sandollar_man

    Mr. Perkins knows that there’s a long list of undesirables. Those who shouldn’t even “think” of approaching to worship God.

    “Whosoever … hath any blemish, let him not approach to offer the bread of his God. For whatsoever man he be that hath a blemish, he shall not approach: a blind man, or a lame, or he that hath a flat nose, or any thing superfluous, Or a man that is brokenfooted, or brokenhanded, Or crookback, or a dwarf, or that hath a blemish in his eye, or be scurvy, or scabbed, or hath his stones broken … He shall not go in unto the vail, nor come nigh unto the altar, because he hath a blemish; that he profane not my sanctuaries”. — Leviticus 21:17-23 KJV

  • The bible can be downright homoerotic when we translate it from original sources, can’t it? Read. And yes, this is correct — from Song of Songs. There is more.

    “The song of songs, which is Solomon’s”

    I hear my love, see how he comes
    leaping on the mountains,
    bounding over the hills.
    My love is like a gazelle,
    like a young stag.
    Let him kiss me with the kisses of his mouth,
    for your love-making is sweeter than wine.
    In his delightful shade I sit,
    and his fruit is sweet to my taste.
    My love is mine and I am his.

    My beloved is all radiant and ruddy, distinguished among ten thousand.
    His head is the finest gold; his locks are wavy, black as a raven.
    His eyes are like doves beside springs of water, bathed in milk, fitly set.
    His cheeks are like beds of spices, yielding fragrance.
    His lips are lilies, distilling liquid myrrh.
    His arms are rounded gold, set with jewels.
    His body is ivory work, encrusted with sapphires.
    His legs are alabaster columns, set upon bases of gold.
    His appearance is like Lebanon, choice as the cedars.
    His speech is most sweet, and he is altogether desirable.
    This is my beloved and this is my friend, O daughters of Jerusalem.

    All we ask is that you set aside some time during worship for your congregation to sit on each others’ faces before the Lord and ask Him to renew their libidos.

  • bambinoitaliano

    Read all the scriptures they want and apply to the others all they want. These so call believers only believe if they are exempted from the same judgment they toss at everyone else. They are in the religion of hypocrisy. The religion of pyramid scheme.

  • Reading the scripture that Miss Toni posted seems to support President Obama. To not act like pagans and leer and lust after others bodies. Not to take advantage of brothers and sisters and to lead a pure life. Sounds like Paul himself was against rape and bullying.

    Methinkist that Miss Toni needs to look at himself long and hard in a hand mirror and see the hate and unclean spirit he is harboring within.

    • Dreaming Vertebrate

      Methinks Tonette is not going to look at anything long and hard in his hand mirror.

  • Tom (Wpg)

    More so, when you when you quote scripture, pig-brain. Geez, why can’t you ignorant bums see yourselves for what you are?

  • Frommer_Gast

    Actually, 2 Chronicles 7:14 does not require people to humble each other, as far as I got it … should someone explain him the difference?

      OT verses only apply to us, not to Christians™. Doesn’t everyone know that?

    Perkins: It’s Disgusting When Obama Cites Scripture

    Because only devils like Perkins are allowed to quote the Bible.

  • grada3784

    I get the distinct impression that Republicans think Obama is way too uppity.

  • wmforr

    Tony, that’s St. Paul, the anal retentive flip-flopper. The so-called Golden Rule is what Jesus called the second of the two most important commandments. So get your priorities straight. Are you a “Christian” or a “Paulist”?

      Satin is all I ever wear.

  • junesxing

    they should copyright their bible so that no one can quote it unless they approve of the passage.

  • Spray on abs

    Because a book written by a bunch of guys that didn’t know where the sun went at night must have all the answers…

  • Tammy Rainey

    The man who says THIS:

    ” that you should avoid sexual immorality;”

    Makes reference to the use of public restrooms by trans people, or to trans people in any way, is in a really poor position to suggest that anyone else is misusing Scripture.

  • argeejay

    Tony perKKKins thinks the the scriptures are his.

  • fuzzybits
  • madknits

    Well Toni, even the Devil can cite Scripture. After all, you do it every day.

  • Tammy Rainey

    Here’s some Scripture for you Tony, since we’re in a quotin’ mood:

    “The scribes and the Pharisees have seated themselves in the chair of
    Moses; therefore all that they tell you, do and observe, but do not do
    according to their deeds; for they say things and do not do them.

    “Theytie up heavy burdens and lay them on men’s shoulders, but they
    themselves are unwilling to move them with so much as a finger. “But
    they do all their deeds to be noticed by men;

    “But woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites, because you shut off the kingdom of heaven from people; for you do not enter in yourselves, nor do you
    allow those who are entering to go in. [“Woe to you, scribes and
    Pharisees, hypocrites, because you devour widows’ houses, and for a
    pretense you make long prayers; therefore you will receive greater
    condemnation.] “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites, because
    you travel around on sea and land to make one proselyte; and when he
    becomes one, you make him twice as much a son of hell as yourselves.

    “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you tithe mint and dill and
    cummin, and have neglected the weightier provisions of the law: justice
    and mercy and faithfulness; but these are the things you should have
    done without neglecting the others. “You blind guides, who strain out a
    gnat and swallow a camel! “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees,
    hypocrites! For you clean the outside of the cup and of the dish, but
    inside they are full of robbery and self-indulgence. “You blind
    Pharisee, first clean the inside of the cup and of the dish, so that the
    outside of it may become clean also. “Woe to you, scribes and
    Pharisees, hypocrites! For you are like whitewashed tombs which on the
    outside appear beautiful, but inside they are full of dead men’s bones
    and all uncleanness. “So you, too, outwardly appear righteous to men,
    but inwardly you are full of hypocrisy and lawlessness. “Woe to you,
    scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you build the tombs of the
    prophets and adorn the monuments of the righteous, and say, ‘If we had
    been living in the days of our fathers, we would not have been partners
    with them in shedding the blood of the prophets.’ “So you testify
    against yourselves, that you are sons of those who murdered the
    prophets. “Fill up, then, the measure of the guilt of your fathers. “You
    serpents, you brood of vipers, how will you escape the sentence of
    hell?

    Mr. Perkins, your lack of self awareness is staggering.

  • Jean-Marc in Canada

    Once again, a reading from the good book…..

  • joe ho

  • SammySeattle

    Mr. Perkins brings up a very good point. Anyone can quote from the worlds most popular Choose Your Adventure Book to support their agenda. Mr. Perkins’ agenda of hate is made patently obvious by his choices.

  • xzargo

    Fuck you, Tony Perkins.

  • djcoastermark

    I know it has most likely been said, but, It’s disgusting when t perkins cites anything.

  • Ginger Snap

    Why Tony, could it be that he’s quoting what is good about that filthy book of lies instead of hate?

  • sounds like he advocates one unisex bathroom for everyone

  • Hal

    What an insipid little man.

    Your ignorance makes me ill and angry.

    I wish Obama and at least SOME Democrats would quote Matthew 25:42 ff, in which Jesus states that those who are indifferent to the sick, the hungry, the homeless, the friendless (i.e., over 99.9% of Republiscum in Congress) will burn in hell until the end of time and beyond.

    And what does the verse Perkins quotes have to do with trans people using the bathroom they feel comfortable in?

      They are scary. It’s the christian taliban and they want us all in burkas.

  • Taleisin

    Obama using the scriptures for good instead of evil.
    No wonder he drives the fundies crazy.

  • OSG

    An “anti-biblical” environment would be an environment free of human trafficking. The book’s target audience is slave-owners.

  • SU – Root

    Well, scripture is disgusting so there is that equation.

  • Boy Elvis

    And they’re still using that logo. PerKKKins really is his own punchline.

  • andrew

    The Bible is a cafeteria where haters like Perkins find and preach the hate and where good men like Obama find goodness and preach the good. The collection of ancient writings called the Bible is so full of contradictory messages that everyone can find something to justify their beliefs.

  • Glen

    It’s disgusting when anyone cites “scripture”.
