Citing the Bible, TN School Board Member Rejects Gay-Straight Alliance Club

Again a person using their religious beliefs to force others to obey their version of god.  This person says his god comes before all state laws, federal laws, the bill of rights, and even the constitution.   He wants a theocracy built on his his god and his version , forcing everyone to do as he sees fit.   He is a religious asshole.  There is more at the link below.     Hugs

Tecky Hicks, who works as a Baptist pastor, said that if the GSA group was formed, he would urge parents to pull their kids out of school.

Hicks told board members he took the same oath as [Vice Chairman Debbie] Shedden, but he believes the Bible supersedes the Constitution of the U.S., the Bill of Rights, the Magna Carta, the Mayflower Compact, school board policy, the state constitution “and everything else.”

“Therefore, based on that, there’s no way under God’s heaven I can approve any such club in our schools,” Hicks told the board. “I’ve got a daughter who has a child in second grade this year, and she has already made the decision that if something like this is approved by our board, she’s pulling her kid out of school. I would suggest, and I’ll make it a public statement, that every person in the county who has that privilege — do it.

“I’ll take my stand on what I believe above and beyond anything man has ever made because the Bible plainly teaches that we are to subject ourselves to the authority that’s over us as long as the authority doesn’t overstep the bounds of what God has said it ought to be. God settled that over 2,000 years ago, folks, and I’m going to stand on it until hell freezes over.

He took an oath… and then promptly refused to follow it because being a religious bigot matters more than doing what’s best for students. That’s his philosophy. While the district might be better off without families that think like him, it’s a sad statement that the existence of a club for students he thinks are Hell-bound is enough to make a push for homeschooling. (Would he say the same thing about a club for atheists? Jews? Hindus?)

Catholic Archbishop: If Your Religion Contradicts the Law, Ignore the Law

https://friendlyatheist.patheos.com/2018/12/14/catholic-archbishop-if-your-religion-contradicts-the-law-ignore-the-law/

 

The Archbishop of Dublin Diarmuid Martin is telling Catholics that they are not obligated to follow lawsthat contradict their faith.

Far from separation of church and state, Martin wants Church to simply ignore the State.

Concerning the Regulation of Termination of Pregnancy Bill, which goes before the Seanad this week, Archbishop Martin said, “There’s a clear Catholic teaching that if legislation is against the basic principles of faith of people that they can’t be forced to carry it out.

Asked whether this right of Catholics not to obey laws in certain circumstances also included legislation on divorce, same-sex marriage and family planning, Archbishop said: “There’s a hierarchy of truths in Catholic teaching and the centrality of some aspects. If people have conscientious objection it’s a very important thing to remember it. For me, very often social change comes from people who stand up for their commitments.”

Martin’s assessment might make former Kentucky clerk Kim Davis proud, but if everyone chose to follow only the laws they wanted to, while claiming a religious defense for ignoring the rest, society wouldn’t function. Martin’s fine with faith trumping civil laws… but I have a hunch he would be saying something very different if we were talking about Muslims and other non-Christians instead of fellow Catholics.

Better yet, keep us out of it altogether.
Bible bad.

Um, all of it?
Evil is caused by god’s free will.
I sleep in every weekend for humanity’s sins, and I don’t demand worship. I do it simply because it’s the right thing to do, or evil would win. Maybe I’m just more loving…

Why beer is better than Jesus.

And Satan, who is God’s enemy, punishes bad people. You know, the ones who defy God, Satan’s enemy. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
