Theocratic Constitution Party Makes Their CPAC Debut: Sexual Deviants Deserve No Legal Favor Or Protections

Peter Montgomery provides their mission statement:

The Constitution Party gratefully acknowledges the blessing of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ as Creator, Preserver and Ruler of the Universe and of these United States. We hereby appeal to Him for mercy, aid, comfort, guidance and the protection of His Providence as we work to restore and preserve these United States.

This great nation was founded, not by religionists, but by Christians; not on religions but on a foundation of Christian principles and values. For this very reason peoples of all faiths have been and are afforded asylum, prosperity, and freedom of worship here.

The goal of the Constitution Party is to restore American jurisprudence to its Biblical foundations and to limit the federal government to its Constitutional boundaries.

The above logically leads to this:

No government may legitimately authorize or define marriage or family relations contrary to what God has instituted. We are opposed to any judicial ruling or amending the U.S. Constitution or any state constitution re-defining marriage with any definition other than the Biblical standard.

We reject the notion that homosexuals, transgenders or those who are sexually deviant are deserving of legal favor or special protection, and affirm the rights of states and localities to proscribe offensive sexual behavior. We oppose all efforts to impose a new sexual legal order through any courts or legislatures.

Finally, we oppose any legal recognition of homosexual or civil unions. We affirm the value of the father and the mother in the home and we oppose efforts to legalize adoption of children by homosexual singles or couples.

You’ll be shocked to learn that the Constitution Party raised money for Roy Moore’s Senate run.

      Well actually he fingered his sisters at 14-15, got married at 20, then at 27 got caught with 2 Ashley Madison accounts, paying for sex with allegedly married women, while the wife was carrying child #5. (Fun fact: Josh used his grandmother’s credit cards to open one of those accts.) Until the latest scandal, he was an executive director of the Family Research Council. (Who knew that family research actually required the use of one’s fingers?)

      If a Christian theocracy ever started up, within a day they would be killing each other off because those heathens over there think the Sabbath is on Saturday, and those reprobates over there think that it’s okay to have wimmins as ministers, and those perverts over there don’t stone gay children to death.

        No, no, it needs larger states to play out. Florida. And Texass.

          Florida could be a perfectly good state if we got rid of all the crazies. I’m okay with moving them all to Texass.

      Plus it is not even orthodox Christian theology: God the Father, not Jesus, is the Creator.

        That’s a given.

      • Really? I am not Christian, but Isn’t Jesus God? I thought they were the same thing. This is so confusing.

        • David Walker

          And there’s a ghost in there somewhere, too, but they’re all one. K?

          • I read alot about religions, I love reading about philosophy and history, but the concept of the trinity is incredibly confusing to me. I can’t even figure out who Christians worship in Church — Jesus, or God, or both, and if I ask them this question I tend to piss them off or get a confusing answer. Another reason to invite hot Mormon Boys into my house but one has never come to my door unfortunately (are Mormons Christian? — another question, oh well).

          • Paula Key

            The Jewish religion has only one God (Father/ Creator/Judge) The Jews were constantly taken into captivity so prophet(s) spoke of a Messiah – a man that would free them from being subjected to conquerors. They did speak of the spirit of God – but it was still one God. Then after Jesus was crucified – the followers of Christ spoke of him as God’s son, but equal to God. Since God could not be killed – Christians spoke of the God/Man of Jesus and the man part died, but the God part rose from the dead. Then, they added the Spirit – so three God but all acting in unison. That’s the Trinity as I understand it. However, most right-wing evangelists want it both ways – a God Father who can smite enemies and they can part of this, and a jesus part that will free them from their sins and guarantee eternal life. however, the Jesus part and his love of humanity is ignored – why love your enemies when God the Father has a tradition of smiting them and you can hang on to Levitucus with its 90 odd abominations and keep only the homosexual one.

    This has been done before. The Mass Bay Colony attempted to institute Mosaic law. Trouble was when they came to try to figure out what that meant. And out of all the conflicting instructions in the Bible, which were the ones to follow. Not surprisingly it didn’t end well. I’m convinced that the reason the writers of the constitution took care to separate the church from the new state was that they’d seen the damage that an out-of-control clergy could do to a terrorized citizenry.

    “Christian principles and values” do not typically include allowing freedom of other religions, freedom of speech, freedom of the press, freedom of expression, slavery and unfettered capitalism.

    If they really had their way, they would have a Christian version of Saudi Arabia: no conversion to another religion, no alcohol, no porn, censorship, no non-christian religious texts, whippings for adultery, forced modesty, etc.

    Two things that are now very apparent:

    1. The American Conservative movement’s public embracing of reactionary political views is both worrying and telling; Worrying because it makes them only that much closer to out and out Fascism, and telling in their desperation to gain support – ANY support – that they can get.

    2. The GOP really IS dying as a political party, and they can only continue to exist by changing, or dying. They have essentially embraced a suicide pact, and they are more than willing to take everyone else down with them.

    • Halou

      There is always one person further off to the right than where they are currently setting themselves, and the GOP wants to be “inclusive” so they will pander to that one person even if it means losing a hundred others not so far-right.

    Three words:


    • Talisman

      I was reading something a long time back, and it turns out you have to be careful about applying the 1797 Treaty of Tripoli. This Treaty was negotiated and written in Arabic and then translated to English, and there is some evidence that the text in Article 11 (containing the clause about the US not being a Christian nation) might be a mistranslation or invalid insertion. There is no comparable text in the Arabic version. On the other hand, Congress ratified the English version, with the article, so it is arguably valid.

      I’ve also read articles that state that, in context, the Article 11 text is there to clarify that religious differences aren’t enough to break the Treaty. It cannot be used, therefore, to support any claims about the U.S. government being definitively secular.

      The Treaty was broken in 1801, and a new treaty was negotiated in 1805. The Article 11 text is not included in the 1805 version.

      I’m in no way a legal scholar, and know nothing about international law and treaties. I merely rely on what the professionals say.

    Nobody actually looks to the bible for their jurisprudence. The Bible approves of slavery, subjugation of women, beating of children, killing of all the inhabitants in cities conquered in war, execution of all who work on the Sabbath, commit adultery, engage in same sex relations, the execution of fortune tellers, those who worship Gods other than Yahweh. It approves of plural marriage and concubinage. The bible is such a primitive tome that civilized societies have learned for the good of humanity to ignore most of it’s moral teachings.

    The answer to the question depends on whose definition of “theocracy” you’re using?

    The word has a single meaning – government by religious belief. Maybe we can quibble about which belief system the government is based on, but it’s still based on religion. And that is unequivocally denied by the first amendment.

    God has expressed his acceptance of same-sex attraction by establishing same-sex attraction in all his living creatures. Penguins do it, leopards do it, even pandas in the trees do it. Let’s do it. Let’s fall in love.

  • Kissmagrits

    My hearing is not what it was….Did I hear “Constipation Party”?

    • Ann Kah

      That explains a lot about that constant look of pain and outrage on their faces.

  • No More GOP.

    Well, aren’t they charming.

    • LOL. You sound British. This is a very UK remark 🙂

  • Dale Snyder

    Wow. Just Wow.

    I’m so glad we’ve been enlightened by the vilest piece of christianist shits on this planet.

    Let the entire WWW see this VILE FILTH for what it is.

    The GOP acts like a blob of mercury. First, the Tea Party blob joined up with the GOP, which is now calving this religious-flavored party. That’s a good thing; divide and conquer!

    • Mike, from TV

      Like mercury, if you spend too much time in it, you end up with brain damage.

      • dagobarbz, fine Italian shoes

        LOL, good point!

  • CB

    Won’t this split the GOP?

  • Ann Kah

    Well, you’ll have to go away and found your own country, then, because that’s not what America is, and that’s not what America does.

  • Kevin Andrews

    One more gaggle of Christ-O-Fascists spewing their Missionary of Hate, perverse “family values” as demonstrated by the Duggars and the pedophile Roy Moore. Delusional, disgusting Theocrats and Bartonesque rewriting of history. These are the Red Coat (cape for the Catholics) traitors without a single redeeming quality.

    • Catholics were not exactly welcome in many of the 13 original colonies except for Maryland, which was founded specifically as a refuge for them. They were barely tolerated at best. They were not even considered “true Christians” but Papist controlled idolitors by the radical Protestant separatists in the Massachusetts Bay Colony and James Oglethorpe’s Georgia – and banned from entry for many years. That is how intolerant parts of theocratic America were before our great Constitution became the light of freedom to the rest of the world.

        And in the 1626 founding of New Amsterdam by the Dutch, the focus of the community was business…not religion. I believe it took 11 years or so for them to get around to building their first church.

        From New Netherland and the Dutch Origins of American Religious Liberty by Evan Haefeli … by the 1650s New Amsterdam (now New York City) and its satellite communities were home to a colorful array of European religious refugees and ‘seekers’: Lutherans, Mennonites, Jews, English Baptists, Quakers, and a few Catholics, all of whom existed outside the bounds of the
        colony’s official Dutch Reformed (Calvinist) church.

        This hogwash they spew about singular ‘christian’ biblical focus needs to be shut down whenever they raise it.

  • olandp

    So, basically throw out the Constitution and the courts. Got it.

  • Gregory B

    The late Senator, Barry Goldwater, is spinning in his grave.

  • glass

    We already have a jesus party, GOP.

  • eddiebeskeddie

    more like the Constipation Party

  • juanjo54

    Dominionism at its most clear – the American form of ISIS.

    • KnownDonorDad

      And they already hold the vice presidency.

  • RealityBass

    I wonder what constitution they’re named after? It’s definitely not the US Constitution.

  • -M-

    “Whose definition of theocracy.”?

  • Gregory In Seattle

    This pleases me: the more extremists they can drain away from the Republican Party, the more likely we can get Democrats elected.

  • Falconlights

    You sick bastards! Change your name because you have NOTHING to do with the Constitution!

  • killreligion

    These people are confused. They seem to be the anti constitution party

    They want biblical laws. Why not be the biblical party? The constitution explicitly bans what they seek

  • JCF

    “whether the party wants to establish a theocracy. The answer to the
    question depends on whose definition of “theocracy” you’re using”

    Well that’s never a good sign…

  • youngpaleocon

    The Constitution Party is not theocratic. They have been around since 1992 and have run a presidential candidate in every election since. They do not endorse anything president Trump says or does.In fact in 2016 me and over 200,000 people voted for Darrell Castle their 2016 presidential candidate and rejected the vile Mr.Trump.

    “You’ll be shocked to learn….”

    Not in the slightest, that is what passes for ‘normal’ behaviour for such people.

    From my fact sheet on child sex abusers:

    3. Child Sex Abusers are Common in Conservative and Religious Communities and Organisations

    There are a multiplicity of reasons for that, some of the major ones include:
    – Children in them are brought up to be perfect victims (sexually ignorant, respectful of adults and authority, making them very vulnerable to grooming and manipulation).
    – They are very tolerant and forgiving of those doing it within the group (especially their authority figures).
    – Children as far less likely to report it, or be believed if they do, or their parents or their authorities will do little or nothing about it. Some parents will even punish their children for reporting it.
    – Sexual ignorance, represssion and neuroticism is very common in adults in such communities.
    – Physical violence, because of dehumanisation and devaluing of children, is very common, and some religious communities actually encourage it. It is only a small hop, skip and a psychological jump from physically abusing a child to sexually abusing them.

    These (and other factors) means there are both higher numbers of situational abusers and paedophiles.

    In the first case sexual repression and neuroticism play a large part, the archetype being the married uncle who abuses his niece because he has a very poor sexual relationship with his wife and having someone naive that he can manipulate into getting the sex he wants is attractive.

    In the case of paedophiles they are attracted to such communities and organisations because there are many (and easy) victims available, what they do will be ignored and/or tolerated, there is little chance of being caught (and even if they do they will probably be ‘forgiven’).

    Convicted abusers have stated that such people are “easier to fool”, that parents will often “side with the abuser” even against their own child. See GRACE a US Christian group fighting against child sex abuse in churches.
