FRC Launches Snitchline To Report On LGBT Americans Who Flagrantly Have Civil Rights At The Workplace

Via press release from hate group leader Tony Perkins:

Today, the Department of Justice (DOJ), issued guidance directing federal agencies to respect religious freedom.

As you may remember, President Trump issued an executive order on May 4 making clear that the administration will pursue policies that “protect and vigorously promote religious liberty ” and thus directing the DOJ to issue guidelines ensuring religious liberty is protected.

Today that guidance was issued and another step was taken toward undoing the anti-faith policies of the Obama administration.

President Trump and now the Department of Justice are placing federal government agencies on notice: you will not only respect the freedom of every American to believe, but the free exercise of religion.

Today, Family Research Council is launching a hotline for federal employees, contractors and citizens who believe that they have suffered discrimination in the workplace based on their religious beliefs or practices. The ‘Free to Believe’ hotline will help ensure that no one will have to choose between their livelihood and their faith.

Please join me in signing our thank you petition to President Trump and the Attorney General expressing appreciation for their efforts to end government discrimination on the basis of religious beliefs or practices.

Feel free to hit that link and let Tony Perkins know exactly what you think.

        It’s kind of interesting, and I mean, disturbing, how Evangelicals are carrying water for corporations, billionaires, the NRA, etc. because the issues that are so linked with the Republican party.

        For example, if a person believes that God created the earth, shouldn’t they think “wow, look at all the beauty of nature and diversity of animals that God created, we should really protect that and take care of it. But instead, they believe that the EPA forces ‘silly’ regulations on corporations that cause the poor corporations to have to spend more money–like not pouring toxic chemicals into water that feeds into drinking water supplies.

        The same with guns and taxes and helping the poor. On one hand they pray for health and healing, and believe that God will supply all their needs and protect them, and that all thier possessions really belong to God–but then they need a gun to protect themselves, and say that taxes are too high and the poor are just lazy.

        • OleHagen

          Well-said!

      • Thomas Stone

        this isn’t actually true in terms of like, what ‘christians’ tend to believe in the us- catholics are more anti trump than the country as a whole (about 66/33) and outside of evangelicals every other denomination is at least somewhat against him, including mormons iirc. i recognize that ‘anti trump’ and ‘anti frc’ aren’t synonymous, but certainly i don’t think it’s reasonable to let these assholes have sole claim to christianity.

        they are the loudest about it though

        • Treant

          I’m not at all interested in this conversation. Call me when they actually object in public instead of giving the old, very quiet, “We don’t believe that.” Always accompanied by a complete lack of getting off their asses. Complicit is guilty and I’m fucking tired of the double talk.

          • Thomas Stone

            When who objects? You know that Christians aren’t like one big group, right? That logic is the same shit these guys try to pull against Muslims

          • Treant

            At least I’m wasting your time in converting somebody who could be converted. Yes, you’re not one big group. Too bad the objections are so quiet and involve no actual help. Which effectively makes most of you one big group.

            Deal with that fact. When it comes to “love thy neighbor,” “christians” (most of whom are actually Paulites) suck at it but lie prettily to cover that up. Hypocrisy is annoying.

      • Ron Glenn

        You said it. For many years now, I’ve felt that “christian” is synonymous with evil; after all, “the devil does his finest work closest to the pulpit” and modern day christians continue to prove this point in spades.

    • Mike

      When this nightmare is over, there will be no forgiveness as far as I’m concerned, and no welcoming jebus-loving trumpsters back into civilized circles or into our homes. Yay, more turkey for the rest of us, and without having to listen to crap from drunk uncles!

        • MonochromeMouse

          If you do work with them you should be on the lookout for the slightest thing you could complain to HR about to get them in trouble, even if it’s something really minor or accidental. They need to start learning there are consequences for being an asshole.

    • Sashineb

      I can’t stand them. And yet, no matter number of what “liberties” they have (churches not paying taxes, for one thing), they will stand and scream that they’re facing terrible persecution.

      • (((GC)))

        Churches not just not paying taxes, but also not being required to file Form 990 like every other tax-exempt nonprofit. We have no idea how much money they get, or from whom, or where it goes.

        This is why preventing the IRS from enforcing the Johnson Amendment would be such a disaster. Hello, unlimited anonymous dark money to politicians!

        (And many ministers and pastors want the Johnson Amendment to be effective and strong, so churches won’t be divided among partisan lines.)

      • vorpal 😼

        If we of all the discriminated minorities united, we could show them what it actually feels like to face persecution and give them the collective wet dream that they’ve been begging for since the inception of Christianity.

        • Ninja0980

          Too bad in some cases the minority groups (us included) fight each other or join the bigots.

        • MonochromeMouse

          Christians have never in the entire history of their religion faced actual persecution, the closest thing they have ever come to it is being held to the exact same standards as regular citizens and punished equally for crimes they committed. They were never fed to lions or forced to fight in the roman colosseum (death in the Colosseum was considered an honor and pretty much exclusively reserved for former military convicted of a crime) and the only time they were ever executed was when they did something that would have gotten anyone in that society executed.

      • Matt

    • RMKH

      I’m not being an apologist, just want to point out that there are several denominations of Christians who do not buy into this bullshit. In particular, Episcopalians and Lutherans generally have very tolerant attitudes. I’m a dirt worshipping pagan but this week I went to a Lutheran Church that was hosting a Muslim/Christian outreach event. So please add “fundamentalist” to your Christian bashing and I’ll be right there with you.

      • GayOldLady

        Well, you can’t add fundamentalist to the complaint and think that covers it. The RCC (the largest body of Christians in the world) is anti-LGBT. The Southern Baptists are anti-LGBT. There are many, many more christian religions that reject the LGBT community than accept us.

        • RMKH

          You’re right about the Catholics, they’re not typically fundamentalist. I would class the Southern Baptists and the vast majority of the other haters as fundies in that they believe in literal biblical interpretation. Or at least their literal interpretation. Most of the gay haters probably eat bacon with both hands even though the proscription against pork is in the same book as the gay hating.

          • (((GC)))

            But none of those old rules are binding on Christians! Or maybe all of them are! Or maybe some of them… or maybe just the ones about teh ghey. Any of those opinions can find support in the Christian Bible.

        • JCF

          The SBC *is* emphatically Fundamentalist. The RCC can be broken into bog-standard Catholics (who tend to be PRO-equality), and Popoids (or Vatican Fundamentalists—who consider themselves more Catholic than Pope Francis!).

      • shivadog

        Depends on what Lutheran church you go to. The Lutheran church I was forced to go to as a kid was all peace and love and stuff, but the Missouri synod ones are hateful fundamentalists.

        • RMKH

          That’s why I said “generally”.

        • Bingo.

        • JCF

          aka the “Misery Synod”! (kudos Garrison Keillor)

          • Falconlights

            Yeah, I’ve heard it called that, too, and Garrison Keillor nailed it! It really is misery belonging to it.

        • Falconlights

          OMG. You are so right. I was raised Miserable Synod (as many of their former members call it) and fundamentalist fits them to a T. I came out in 1972 and it took my late mother 35 years to finally realize that I was born this way and to accept me and my wife (she actually attended our wedding 10 years ago). But some of the MS headtrips she put me on along the way were something else.

          • shivadog

            I’m glad your mother came to her senses. My husband was disowned by his parents when he came out, but they have changed since then, they attended our wedding and have been great to me.

          • Falconlights

            I’m so glad you saw a good resolution. My cousin and my mom’s caregiver (plus my mom’s counsellor) really worked on my mom and though she was a pretty devout MS member, she was willing to change her mind if she could be convinced. I think it is especially hard for most LGBT people when their own parents don’t accept them. I was so happy when my mum’s caregiver called and said, “Your mom said she is definitely going to be at the wedding.” And when my mom met my then-fiancée, who called her by Mrs. and her last name, my mother said, “Nope, call me Mom”, I knew she accepted her, too. I just wish some parents knew how badly they hurt their LGBT child when they reject who the child is.

      • Friday

        Frankly, it’s way past time thenon-bigoted CHristians stood up to this Dominionist crap and all, instead of expecting us to do their image therapy for the while our rights and lives take all these hits.

        • Girlgoon

          Yup these fanatics give the whole religion a bad name

        • Paul

          And who do they think the dominionists will come after once the gays are eradicated.

          They’ll be the ‘wrong sort of christian’ quicker than they can say love the sinner hate the sin.

          • Falconlights

            Yep. That’s the way it would likely play out. Their silence/complicity will do them no good. All their silence is doing is letting the Dominionists do their dirty work unopposed by any dissenting voices from the “liberal Christians”.

      • Jean-Marc in Canada

        No, I will not be adding “fundamentalist” to my comment. Why? Because the ‘good Christians’ you’re talking about are deafening me with their silence. I’m done listening to apologists, which you are by the way, telling me how virtuous some Christians are…except they remain mute to calling out their fellow believers. Let me put it to you another way, to paraphrase a powerful agitprop chant from my days fighting AIDS:

        SILENCE = TACIT APPROVAL

        By the way, I’m not Christian bashing, if I were, there’d be blood on my hands like there is on theirs.

        • RMKH

          I agree they could do more but I stand on the street corner with some of them so maybe I see something a little different. And as I said, I just went to a Muslim outreach event at a Lutheran Church. But you’re right, many are silent.

          Peace

        • Nowhereman

          Hear hear. I’m sick and tired of the “good christian” meme. It’s not our job to sort them out. I’m a lifelong atheist and a member of several minorities that they rail against. Christians–whether fundamental or plodding old school, have made my life a lot harder than it ever had to be.

        • RJ Bone

          ^^FUCKING. THIS.^^

        • DN

          Could not agree more. I’ll just add another way to phrase what you’re saying: the liberal christian churches give aid and comfort to the fundamentalists.

          The liberal christian churches make it OK to have a completely irrational, unjustified (and unjustifiable) belief. And they do it using the same holy book, written by Bronze-Age goat herders.

      • Nowhereman

        I say let their gods sort it out. It’s all based on mythology anyway. It has no place in our public lives.

      • Yes, and everyone knows that. But where are they? Where are they when someone needs to debate the other Christians about their bigotry? Nowhere to be found. And don’t even try the bullshit about how the news channels only want the extremists. All the major denominations have press offices. They could get someone on occasionally if they wanted to. They don’t on purpose because their own positions on gay rights are far more muddled that you are saying. Episcopalians for example. Yes, pretty good on the local level in the big cities. But some churches are leaving and joining diocese in Africa to be more socially conservative. Also, their one gay bishop wasn’t allowed into the Lambeth conference a few years ago and finally resigned. (Too many death threats, I think.) Lutherans? Well ECLA is okay. Don’t forget Missouri and Wisconsin synod and other groups. Methodists are a clusterfuck on gay issues. Again, locally sometimes pretty good, but don’t press too far or you’ll hit a wall as many gay Methodists have discovered. I could go on. Yeah, your local church might treat you just fine. But the denominations are not as good as liberal Christians would have us believe. At best some are better than they were.

        • JCF

          “But some churches are leaving and joining diocese in Africa to be more socially conservative.”

          …and those (few) who do aren’t Episcopalian anymore.

          “Also, their one gay bishop wasn’t allowed into the Lambeth conference a few years ago and finally resigned. (Too many death threats, I think.)”

          1) Not the only gay bishop—he was joined by a lesbian who still serves 2) “Lambeth” is Anglicans, not Episcopalians. That Lambeth Conference was such a clusterfuck (in 2008), they haven’t met since, and 3) he (Gene Robinson) retired. He had served 10 years—a standard-length tenure (DESPITE the death threats, battle w/ alcoholism, break-up of his marriage).

          The Episcopal Church isn’t perfect, of course (I defy one to find me any large group of human beings who are!). But in the course of my lifetime as Episcopalian, they’ve come farther on LGBT equality than, say, the United States of America has (it had marriage equality before the USA did, and Trans equality is enshrined in it). We believe that Love (including Queer Love) WINS. My faith community—my family—in my Episcopal parish keeps me going, amidst all the Drumpf bullshit. It’s not for everybody—but it works for Queer Lil’ Me.

          • Harshan

            The Episcopal Church of Brazil, the Episcopal Church of Scotland, and the Episcopal Church of the US are Anglican churches because they are affiliated with the Archbishop of Canterbury. The breakaway churches call themselves “Anglican” which would be false advertising because it is not their affiliation, but it is their aspiration. The Anglican Communion has a policy of one church per country, so the breakaway churches want the Archbishop of Canterbury to de-recognize the Episcopalians and take them in. However, the Anglican Communion will not allow the breakaway churches to affiliate with them (the act of breaking away for any reason is a no-no) and their bishops have never been seated at Lambeth.

            The Lambeth conference is a conference of all Anglican bishops and takes place at Lambeth palace once every ten years, so it is no surprise that they haven’t had one since.

            The gay bishop from the US didn’t go to avoid causing off-topic tumult at the conference, since the African bishops still have a way to go on gay people.

            Not all Anglican churches have the word “anglican” or “episcopalian” in their name. The Church of Southern Africa (of Tutu fame) and the Church of the Province of Kenya are examples.

          • No, that’s just not true. There’s an entire documentary about Gene Robinson. He went but wasn’t allowed in. That was their choice not his.

          • JCF

            Thanks, Harshan. Lifelong Episcopalian here, w/ academic degrees in religion: I’m very familiar w/ all of the above.

          • Falconlights

            If you guys still had monastic orders I might be interested. Plus I’m clergy (Independent Sacramentary) but since your church is hobnobbing with the Orthodox, I can’t concelebrate, but I do attend from time to time.

          • James the Apostate

            After I emancipated myself from the fundamentalist cult of my youth, I affiliatied/candidated for the Friars Minor for a few years, and I was fortunate to meet some Episcopalian Friars. They always came to join us for Transitus and other Franciscan events. I was told there were several Episcopalian Religious Orders, especially the communities formed pre-1534. (just replace the (dot).)
            https://www.episcopalchurch(dot)org/page/religious-orders-and-faith-communities

          • JCF

            We do have monastic orders! When I lived in Michigan, my spiritual director for 5 years was an Episcopal Benedictine monk. http://saintgregorysthreerivers.org/ Just one of many monastic foundations in TEC: male, female, and (yes) co-ed. See here for a listing: https://www.episcopalchurch.org/page/religious-orders-and-faith-communities

            Hobnobbing w/ the Orthodox? While TEC has sought ecumenical relations for a long time (w/ various Orthodox churches in the US), we’ve mostly been on the outs for several decades now (somewhat for ordaining women, but mainly due to {wait for it} Teh Gay. TEC has full sacramental equality (equal marriage, equal ordination), and the Orthodox—the hierarchy, at least—loathe us for that.

          • It’s up to you to make those choices for yourself. I am for freedom of religion. I just find it frustrating that it’s 2017 and people are still begging for a little dignity in their own church. Since I only go to church when someone pays me and I’m in enough demand to make choices, I can be picky. Once I am back in a full time with benefits job, I probably won’t darken the doors of a church unless they are doing a seriously highbrow concert that interests me.

          • JCF

            Other people, in other churches: I have EQUAL dignity in the Episcopal Church. Pax et bonum, Hounden (I’m a tenor too!)

        • Harshan

          In other words, churches are made up of people. Lutherans and Methodists aren’t much different. Lutherans tend to be belong to higher social classes and have more education than Methodists. The Methodist movement was originally a rescue mission among the dispossessed of the industrial revolution in England and have always been lower class people with a disproportionate number of less-educated members in rural areas where there are people living in communities that are so small that they actually have never met a gay person in real life. Policies are set by lay people, and no matter what a denomination’s org chart says, power actually flows from the bottom up—even in the Catholic Church. The Lutherans have an enlightened opinion of gay people. Methodist clergy are more enlightened than the overall membership, but the overall membership actually runs the denomination, in this case, to the frustration of the clergy.

          • More or less, yes. Also there are strong regional differences. Some does depend on the clergy (as liberal/conservative clergy often attract similar congregants). There are no hard and fast rules. There are very conservative Episcopal congregations (even in major cities) and very liberal Southern Baptist churches. Also, you realize there are multiple kinds of Lutherans and while ELCA is pretty liberal, Wisconsin Synod and Missouri Synod are not. Again regional variations. I had my time wasted on an interview for a section leader job some years ago at a Presbyterian church that was from the liberal branch of that denomination but guess what, when I got there they started asking me all these personal questions and had a statement they wanted me to sign (a morals clause pretty much). I laughed because well I’m a big ‘mo and wasn’t even close to that. The job had been open awhile and that’s why it turns out because the tenors that aren’t gay tend to be horndogs. There are exceptions but now you’ve limited the pool and they paid about 20% below the standard rate in that city so…nope. I should have done my homework before I wasted my time. Lesson learned.

          • Harshan

            I heard from an organist friend in Tennessee that a certain church had broken away to be anti-gay. It had a pipe organ. I asked, “Who’s going to play the organ?” He was at a loss for words!

          • They’ll probably switch to a praise band.

            In my whole life I’ve only ever met one heterosexual male organist (that I believed…that one was a real horndog. If he was faking it, he deserves an Academy Award!). One of the real problems with the variations among clergy and congregations is that a lot of people get settled into a false sense of security in their well-paying church gig. And then along comes a more conservative priest or minister and they are fired. I’ve seen it happen to many times. And it’s perfectly legal because they are a church (and would be legal for any business in half the states).

            Personally, I’m always aware that there are limits. Some churches are fine with the gay men in their choir or at the keyboard but if you get married…boom out on your ass. That’s happened several times recently. There’s almost always a limit to the “tolerance”. (Quotations because over 20 years ago I got sick of right-wingers rubbing that word in my face as if I was supposed to stay silent while they said racist, sexist and homophobic things in front of me. I almost never use that word as a result. I deserve the same rights as everyone else. Tolerance? That implies I give a fuck what they think about me.)

          • JCF

            “if you get married…boom out on your ass”

            Again, that can’t happen in the Episcopal Church. Equality is enshrined in church law.

          • Maybe it’s time to explain that to the rest of the Anglican communion then because your sister church in Australia just made a big donation to fight their gay marriage referendum.

          • JCF

            As I said elsewhere on this thread, it’s not the Anglican Church in Australia as a whole, it’s the Archdiocese of Sydney. [Not my “sister”. More like, the FAKE relative who shows up at the reading of the will!]

            The Episcopalians I’ve seen tend to be pretty liberal. The problem is in Dioceses like Denver. They leave whether a parish is willing to allow a same sex marriage to take place or not up to the parish. I had a non-Episcopal friend who is Christian and wanted to marry but didn’t want to wait forever for one of the two local parishes to get with it (she is from a small Independent Catholic group) and marry her and her wife (Civil Marriage). The priests had no issue with the marriage personally, but the parish still has some homohaters in it–parish politics don’t you know .(I’m not anywhere near or I would have married them).

          • Yep, sounds familiar. The reality of most small churches is that only a few people are keeping the church afloat financially and if they don’t want something to happen, it’s not happening. And those donors tend to be older and more conservative. Not always, but often enough.

          • JCF

            “There are very conservative Episcopal congregations (even in major cities)”

            Not much, anymore. I think there are only a couple of dioceses left, where the bishop doesn’t allow SSM. Of course, I want to get rid of those turds ASAP!

            “In other words, churches are made up of people”

            So your point is that organizations that should somehow be imbued with some sort of holiness are just as fallible as any other organization. What a waste of time.

        • Falconlights

          Ran into that where I was living. Some Episcopalian parishes were fine and very accepting, whereas others were not really accepting. I simply was out with my wife when attending and let the homophobes deal with it. When I lived in San Francisco, the one local Orthodox church was Homophobe Heaven (actually all the mainline churches were that way), whereas a small Independent Orthodox parish was pretty accepting, but the bishop wouldn’t marry couples, so go figure. ELCA was great and the Episcopalians were OK too.
          Oh, when I lived in the Pueblo/Canon City, CO area, one parish was very accepting, wheras the other two not so much (the priest were OK, just they had homophobic parishioners still around).

        I say hold them to the same standards the racist republicans want to hold average Muslims to. If the christians aren’t constantly going out of their way to denounce and rebuke the assholes and killers then they are all the same as terrorists. Christians have been responsible for the vast majority of American terrorist attacks and historically most atrocities worldwide.

      • DN

        I understand and appreciate the sentiment, but I have to point out that the anti-gay WBC and the gay-affirming church use the exact same holy book.

        Christianity is premised on the notion that humans are born deserving of eternal punishment (which is not true), and that the only way to avoid an infinite punishment for finite crimes is to worship an entity that does not deign reveal itself.

        For me, that alone condemns all of christianity.

        They really need to get over themselves. Fewer and fewer of us believe in their bronze age mythology, and even fewer of us want to live under Levitican law. Even they don’t want to live under it–they just want to force the rest of us to live under it.

      • Harshan

        Taxing churches would have no effect on most of them. They are nonprofits with 150 or so members and have no profits to tax. It’s easy to make a case that the few, huge, visible, loud, and objectionable megachurches do make a profit; they would be affected. Shutting up the people with megahones would be helpful.

        There are a lot of liberal or at least benign churches, but none of them are megachurches. So the good guys, such as the Baptist Church in Seattle that hosted mass weddings for gay people on the day that marriage was legalized, would not be affected,

    • Rick Diehl

        Jesus had great advice, like “take no thought for the morrow.”

        That’s why retirement plans, college funds, and having a savings account is 1) a bad idea, and 2) heretical toward the supreme being.

        • Harshan

          I gather you don’t live in the 17th century. That’s how it was translated in 1611. Today it is translated “So do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring worries of its own. Today’s trouble is enough for today.” That’s what “take no thought” meant in 1611. Just because a sentence in the Bible begins with a number doesn’t mean it can stand alone. “So” refers back to the previous discussion which is about the priorities of the disciples who were in great anxiety at the time. He says, in effect, “you are too worked up. Cross the bridge when you come to it.”

            The evangelical Republicans are not biblical. Apparently they have guilt feelings and think they are going to be punished, so they project it to everyone. This is the bitter fruit of Reform theology, which is worthy only of rejection.

            Then Jesus cried aloud: “Whoever believes in me believes not in me but in him who sent me. And whoever sees me sees him who sent me. I have come as light into the world, so that everyone who believes in me should not remain in the darkness. I do not judge anyone who hears my words and does not keep them, for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world. (John 12:46-47)

            (Paul) What business is it of mine to judge those outside the church? Are you not to judge those inside? God will judge those outside. “Expel the wicked person from among you.” (1 Corinthians 5:12)

            (In the context of immorality among their church members. Stop judging the world and clean up your own house. The evangelical Republicans are presuming to have more authority than an apostle.)

            (Jesus) You judge by human standards; I judge no one. (John 8:15)

            Matthew 25: Jesus welcomes people into Paradise who thought they were not Christians, and throws people out who mistakenly thought they were. Evangelical Republicans are not saved by their self-identification, which is all they have going for them.

            But if the wicked turn away from all their sins that they have committed and keep all my statutes and do what is lawful and right, they shall surely live; they shall not die. None of the transgressions that they have committed shall be remembered against them; for the righteousness that they have done they shall live. Have I any pleasure in the death of the wicked, says the Lord God, and not rather that they should turn from their ways and live? (Ezekiel 18:20-24)

            You can see that evangelicals are at best heretical Christians and at worst not Christians at all.

            And a last thought, in parting.

            Why worship any kind of being that won’t prove its own existence? What kind of bullshit is that?

          • Harshan

            People can believe what they cannot see and can disbelieve what is smack in front of their faces. There are people who refuse to believe in climate change, or in vaccines, or that gay people are people, or that sexuality is intrinsic and cannot be changed. There are even people who refuse to believe that the earth is a globe!

            You can prove something to a person who chooses to believe the evidence from which you deduce it. However, God is not caused and cannot be deduced.

            Proof, in the sense of compelling someone to believe what they don’t want to believe, is impossible. God cannot be proved, if He exists, His existence is not contingent on your belief.

          • DN

    • Not only for the right wing Christianists, but also for the moderate and liberal Christians who sit on the sidelines while this shit goes on and are 100 times more likely to yell at their gay friends for daring to shorthand this to Christians (rather than just the right wing kinds) than they are to take on the bigoted Christians who are giving them a bad name. Sick of them too.

    • Harshan

      They aren’t Christians by any historical measure. 1) “God and Jesus” is heretical Arianism. 2) “Just say these words and you’re saved” (as long as you are a republican) is Gnostic, a separate religion. 3) “Hate the sin but love the sinner” is a Hindu saying. 4) Withholding good things from people they don’t like violates two of Jesus commandments. Jesus is a character in thir religion and they use the Bible as a Guiness Book of World Records to justify themselves, but nothing in their religion is Christian except in name. They are evangelical Republicans, not evangelical Christians.

      • Statistics Palin

        Arianism predates Trinitarian Christianity. The Trinitarians “won” the argument by poisoning Arias. Within fifty years of their ascendancy, the Trinitarians called for homosexuals to be reigistered with Bishops and blackmailed a Roman official into declaring Death by Burning the penalty for homosexuality.

        • Harshan

          History is a little more complicated than that. Christianity was persecuted from about 95 to 313, during that time no one wrote theological works or liturgies because they could be used as evidence by the government. The documents we have from that time are all defenses of the faith written by individuals who were attempting to avoid martyrdom.

          Arianism essentially began in a debate among the priests in Alexandria. The Bishop didn’t get involved, because he though that they would come out to an orthodox resolution—but Arius was a strong advocate. Before long, Arianism became a fad among the clergy, though lay Christians mostly did not subscribe to it.

          The bishop of Alexandria couldn’t handle the problem, so he asked for help, but the bishop he asked told him to do it himself. After persecution ended, the dispute became an embarrassment to the emperor who was a nominal Christian. He wanted it resolved, but he didn’t care how.

          About 318 bishops from all over the world, who had never seen or met or communicated with each other before met in Nicea. The bishop of Rome was not there, he was sick, so he sent a priest. The council had two purposes: 1. Standardize the date of Easter and 2. Resolve the arian controversy.

          The bishops were unanimous that arianism was a heresy, and they wanted to promulgate a creed that could be used to test clergy for orthodoxy. The wording of the creed was crucial, because they didn’t want Arians to be able to twist it—and the Arians all intellectual clergy. The debates were over terminology. One big debate was over homoousion (same being) or homoiousion (similar being). The first word could be misinterpreted to mean that the Father and Son were identical, the second word made it seem that they were different. Both were bad choices, but the first one was less prone to deliberate Arian twisting.

          The Nicene Creed of 325, the first time the bishops met since the first century, deals with the Father and the Son in reaction to Arianism. The next council, in Constantinople, added wording about the Holy Spirit and the Church to make it a general confession of faith because people had begun using it for that purpose.

          The Nicene Creed was adapted in the west as a baptismal liturgy into what is called the Apostle’s Creed. It is divided into three questions from the clergy and three answers from the baptismal candidate.

          Way, way back before that, the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit were called the Triad, but that term was not much liked because it stresses the three over the one. All of the councils into the 8th century were conducted in Greek, the NT is in Greek, and most theology was done in Greek. Tertullian a Latin theologian, invented or popularized the term “tri-unitatis” or “trinitatis” meaning “three-oneness.” That term was preferable and became current in the east. Tertullian and the word “Trinity” predated the Arian controversy by a century.

          So Arianism did not precede Trinitarianism. Arianism was never accepted as orthodox.

          The Arian controversy raged for some time. When Athanasius became bishop of Constantinople, the clergy were mainly Arian, but he won them all over by persuasion. He demonstrated how it was flawed. There is a Trinitarian creed that is also unofficial in the ancient church was named in honor of Athanasius. It is the Athanasian Creed and the last use of it was in the Lutheran liturgy for Trinity Sunday. (The same day as Pentecost Sunday in the east, and the Sunday after Pentecost Sunday in the west.)

          • Statistics Palin

            Judaism is not Trinitarian. Christ was a Jew all of his life. He never claimed to be divine. He could have done so from the cross. You are simply following the mistakes of others.

          • Harshan

            I pointed out to a Lubavitcher rebbe that Judaism is trinitarian in Genesis 1:1-3. My reasoning was sufficiently rabbinical that he couldn’t contest it. Anyway, Jesus said, “Before Abraham was, I am,” and “I am” is the name of God in Greek—as well as in Hebrew. There are seven I AM sayings. But we need not argue about this. You can believe what you want, and you have good reasons for your choices, but you have to respect that other people have good reason to believe what they do.

          • I have a story about that. I had just sung at an Episcopal cathedral that had added “Shma Israel” (sorry for the phonetic spelling. My Hebrew is worse than my Latin.) to their liturgy. I told this to the cantor at the shul where I often subbed and she was perplexed because that particular part of the Jewish service was added in order to renounce the Christian doctrine of the trinity. *shrug*

      • Jean-Marc in Canada

        Sigh, once again an apologist comes forth. Honestly, I tire with this no true Scotsman nonsense.

        THEY ARE CHRISTIANS and nothing you say will change that. You can try to distance yourself all you want, but guess what, that book you read and follow is the same one they do; and YES, it does call for our deaths, it calls for women and children to die for the most innocent of “offences.” Hell, even the “hero” of the book is good with it, in fact, he champions the owning of slaves…seriously, it’s in there.

        Evangelicals are just more open and honest about what your religion is, just like radical Islamists are about the Qu’ran or Orthodox Jews are about the Torah.

        The fact remains that no so called Christian allies have ever really stepped up or out into the sunlight to fight against it. We see the Evangelicals everywhere, we see the WBC, we see the FRC and AFA…you know who we don’t see? A massive pushback from our supposed vaunted Christian allies. Where are Church leaders? Why aren’t they clambering to get on CNN or even FOX to defend us, because I’ve not seen hide nor hair of them. As such, your claims and protestations of “These are not Christians” is BULLSHIT. Harsh, I know, but my frustration with this constant “not all Christians” refrain is justified so I won’t be apologizing.

        Tell you what, if you don’t want me and others to paint you with the same brush, show us you’re not the same. Have your Church leaders go on CNN and challenge these assholes when they’re on. Yell, cajole, scream and march, in large numbers, to show your support. Protest in front of the LDS, Cathedrals, FRC, etc, en masse. Let’s see the leaders of your churches go toe to toe, publicly, against Perkins et al. Do this and perhaps I’ll buy what you’re trying to sell, because all I’m reading and hearing are empty words, devoid of any credibility, gravitas or value.

      • Someone should point out that Evangelicals don’t think the liberal Christians are real Christians either. I’m content to let them decide among themselves who the true Scotsman really is. It matters not to me. It’s a pathetic argument from either side.

    This grinning, slavering creature who, in exchange for money, induces children to commit suicide.
    This odorous, rotten chum pretending he’s nourishment.
    This lover of hate.
    If you’re a Christian who actually understands and cares about Christ, please tell anyone who will listen that Tony Perkins is to Christianity what a slimy, chewing worm is to a perfectly wonderful apple.

  • GayOldLady

    Maybe the solution is to start our own religion and make part of our dogma:
    1. The freedom to love, marry and have sexual and emotional relationships with consenting adults of our own gender, of another gender or of no gender as given to us by our humanity and by the Universe
    2. The freedom to live as our authentic selves, regardless of how others perceive us as given to us by our humanity and by the Universe.
    3. The freedom to dress, walk, talk and accommodate our lives as we envision ourselves as given to us by our humanity and by the Universe.
    4. The freedom to modify our bodies in order to live our lives as we envision ourselves as given to us by our humanity and by the Universe.

He was doing it as satire, but you might review the step by step process. At first, he kept asking his attorney, “Is this really all you have to do? And it’s legal?”

    As a resident of the theocracy of Utah, this will be a double-edged sword. Many people, regardless if they work in the private or public sector, feel persecuted because they are surrounded by mormons who impose their values and beliefs upon everyone. Having been the only non-mormon who worked at a high profile Utah firm I can assure you it was as if I attended a mormon church everyday when I went to work. Sure, I could have quit. No one made me stay at my job. But the atmosphere was openly hostile to me or clients who didn’t obey the mormon drum beat. Before I left for greener pastures I was able to testify in a sexual harassment case filed by another employee who was non-mormon. When I confirmed that the men in her division often complained about her saying shit like, “She smells like sex when she shows up for work. She doesn’t have a shower?” the judge asked me, “Are you serious. Really?” And as a dutiful witness I calmly told him even more sexist crap the brethren said about this particular former employee who had been fired because . . . well, she was a single working woman. They don’t like that.

    I can see me filing a complaint that these assholes abridged my deeply held personal beliefs and probably winning in court.

    So a Hindu, a Muslim, and a Fundamentalist Christian are traveling together and of course their car breaks down at night out in the country. They go to the nearest farmhouse. The farmer says sure, you can stay here but I only have two spare couches so one of you has to sleep in the barn. The Muslim says “I’ll go, no problem” but a few minutes later there’s a knock at the door and it’s the Muslim. He says there’s a pig in the barn and pigs are unclean to him so he can’t stay there. So the Hindu says he’ll go but a few minutes later, another knock and it’s the Hindu. He says there’s a cow in the barn, cows are sacred and he’s not worthy to stay there with it. After much grumbling, the Fundy finally says that he’ll go to the barn. A couple of minutes later, another knock on the door, and there’s the cow and the pig.

    Tony Perkins has been obsessed with fighting the LGBTQ for a very long time. Over that period of time, his side has been lowly losing battle after battle after battle in his self declared war on the good people of our tribe.
    Donald Trump is a weak POTUS and will eventually be taken down. The religious right made a big gamble when they tied themselves to Trump. When Trump is disgraced and removed from office, Tony Perkins and his little army of sky fairy worshiping troglodytes, their fortunes will be diminished too and maybe then we can chase these FRC goons back under their rock.

    Anyone who preaches to me at work and doesn’t stop when told to do so will be reported to HR. This can work both ways folks.

    • leastyebejudged

      Part of me wonders if this is just a way to create problems where there are none. If someone makes a religious remark at work I generally ignore it, unless it’s a regularly occurring thing from that person.

      Most religious people aren’t interested in being part of this kind of idiotic escalation, though, so I’d avoid giving them anything to justify the fake persecution complex the extremists are trying to initiate everywhere.

      This is a strategy they use; do something ridiculous and extreme, and use the reactions to it to justify it.

      • Wynter Marie Starr

        I agree that most aren’t interested in continuing their preaching once you’ve expressed disinterest. That’s true 99 percent of the time. Unfortunately, I’ve run in to people who think they are “saving my soul”or whatever.

        Those people won’t give up no mater what and need to be reported to HR for harassment.

    I seem to remember the Nazis asking the German people to to turn in Jews, gays and other objectionables who were in hiding. Stalin’s NKVD also did that. Scary times at the hands of people who have no regard for the lessons of history or the rights of a free people.

    Poor Tony Perkins. I’ve never seen a man who wants a dick up his own ass so badly.

  • josephsinger

    Tony Perkins is a horrible excuse for a human being.

    Hopefully they’ll take up the legal case of Oscar DeWilde being forced to sell dildos and lube which is against his religion. Except to FRC members. Let’s just see. It’s juvenile but I enjoyed submitting that. Thanks, Joe!

  • Bob Conti

    So let me get this right. Dumbshits Drumpf and Sessions have made it easier for some thin skinned “Christian” to sue the federal government and waste taxpayer dollars in defending, settling and/or damages. Yeah. The best and the brightest.

  • Larry Leeder

    FINALLY!! I’ve faced a lot of discrimination against my religion!

    Hail Satan!

  • abigskyguy

    Lol…what a bunch of B.S..

    “Hello, this is Free-to-believe-fairy-tales-that-I-still-believe-even-tho-I’m-a-fully-grown-adult Hotline”. Caller : “I’m a christian and I thank my rights b’n broke at the workplace. Y’all I did was tell some co-workers that thar Jewy, brown skin luvin’ ways er’ destroyin’ ‘merica . Oh, and I mighta’ said their all going to the scary place”. FRC: “We will ask Donald Trump to publicly shame the company, allow you to grab a bit of co-worker pussy, non-christian of course lol, pray that they all go to hell…ahhh…I mean…that they come to the lord soon….and send in some F18s to level the place”. Caller: (gets a woody thinking of F18s) “Oh, thank y’all so much…I mean thank god. Peace be with you all!…well not “all” lol” FRC : “lol…we do what we can to spread the love of god in as many unconstitutional, discriminating, and just plain mean ways as humanly possible. The love of the lord just a’workin’ through us. Just keep reading the Bible Part 1….not that sequel with all the hippie crap in it. Remember, despite what common sense, your conscience, the Constitution or even basic human decency tells you, WE are the victims here…we’re always the victims”.

    Caller 2: Hi, I’m a Muslim and work at Chik-ful-A. I kept my faith hidden but I just “came out” to my married boss, who I am having an affair and baby with. He says I need to get a back alley abortion or he’ll fire me. FRC : “Ahhh….Papa Jon Pizza, can I take your order? Lol…just kidding, we don’t serve your kind here. I mean, can you imagine?!”

    Its just another way to expand their mailing list. But feel free to report your own story of religious discrimination, the more outrageous the better, keep them busy for a while.. 🙂

  • Chris Baker

    “Hey Tony, I work at a government agency and my boss lets my homosexual co-worker keep a picture of himself and his ‘husband’ on his desk. and that really offends my religious freedom. Please help me.”

    • LeeCMH

      Gay people across America who have suffered at the hands of the hateful Christians should call hateful Tony Perkins’ number and recount their experiences.

      There are masses of gay folks who have suffered Christian hatred in the form of discrimination, violence, and defamation, to name a few.

      That should fill hateful Tony’s mailbox.

    That would be like thanking a country for dropping a nuclear bomb on the United States.

  • Teddy Pecora

    Hold your breath for 4 years.This will all end in 4 years. And then everything will be over turned. Must get this idiots out of office.

    • CB

      Unless people vote and become active, it’s very possible this will continue for another 4.

  • Jay Silversmith

    At work the other day, I told a fellow employee at lunch that a golden salamander had spoken to me in the forest last year and told me not to believe what my talking snake had told me. And that a year later, I had been abducted by aliens from the planet Theta. But the most profound thing was that yesterday a winged man came down from the sky and told me I was pregnant, even tho I am a male. Anyway, they snitched and my boss fired me. Will Tony Perkins defend my beliefs?

    • At work the other day (I am a retail merchandiser) some fool of a christer tried to hand me a jeebus card mumbling some superstitious crap, I waved him away barking “NO THANKS”, he mewled “But jeebus still loves you” so I said “SO DOES FRODO”

        The Cheshire Cat loves you too.

  • LeeCMH

    Ole hateful Christian KKK’er Tony Perkins, the face of hatred in America.

  • Homo Erectus

    Everybody believes in something. I believe I’ll have another beer.

  • Like most of Trump’s “accomplishments,” this one doesn’t stand up to Constitutional muster: the government may not favor one set of religious beliefs over others.b

    Bring on the lawsuits.

    By the way, did I mention how much Tony Perkins disgusts me?

  • LeeCMH

    Here’s Tony and family at a Family Research Council meeting.

  • Gregory In Seattle

    Let’s see what happens when Muslims, Jews, atheists, and others use this “hotline” to complain about discrimination initiated by Christians.

  • JParkerSD46

    Snitches get stitches, Ese.

  • OleHagen

    When we shipped all our crazies and loons across the ocean, we never imagined they’d get their own army. We fucked up.

  • Observing U

    Those aren’t real Christians. If your faith instructs you to discriminate against innocent people who are merely the way God made them to be and are harming no one, then your faith isn’t Christian.

  • Mara Glubka

    Mostly tax-free, the religion business in America is estimated to be worth $1.2 TRILLION annually in America. All of this is about greed and power, not ‘faith’.

  • John Schaefer

    My husband and I were married in a beautiful church ceremony surrounded by family and friends holding candles as we made our vows before God, who brought us together. Where is our religious freedom in all of this? Aren’t people who refuse to acknowledge our legal marriage infringing on our religious liberties? It doesn’t just work when your beliefs fit a certain mold! Many churches embrace gay marriage. Where are our rights?

  • Jacques Graber

    Religion is the bane of Civilization and the worst thing Mankind has ever created. It has done more damage and killed more people than any famine or plague. And they commit it voluntarily.

  • Belinda Davenport

    To bad if you can get all of the Family Research Council low life in one building and fire a war head at it. I hope Tony Perkins is mugged and beaten to death by gang bangers.

  • Can the AMA and the APA please consider the Christian Faith an ism? It is time that Christianism be considered a mental disorder.
