Trump on Marriage Equality

This is old news by now but it’s new to me, I hadn’t yet seen him confronted with the question yet.

Donald Trump has said on more than one occasion that his "favorite" book is the Bible. He has been married three times, that’s twice remarried. Here’s how his “favorite” book defines remarriage:

-Mark 10:11 -- Jesus: "Anyone who divorces his wife and marries another woman commits adultery against her."
-Luke 16:18 -- Jesus: "Anyone who divorces his wife and marries another woman commits adultery"
-Matthew 19:9 -- Jesus: "I tell you that anyone who divorces his wife, except for sexual immorality, and marries another woman commits adultery."
For the record, “traditional marriage” is code speak for straight love being superior to gay love. CNN interview on June 28, 2015:
JAKE TAPPER Let’s talk about same-sex marriage. You said a few years ago that you were evolving on the issue, where are you?
HETEROSUPREMACIST UNREPENTANT ADULTERER DONALD TRUMP (according to his own beliefs): I’m for traditional marriage, it is changing rapidly.
TAPPER: But what do you say to a lesbian who’s married or a gay man who’s married who says ‘Donald Trump, what’s traditional about being married three times?’
TRUMP: Well, they have a very good point, but you know, I’ve been a very hard working person, actually I have a great marriage, I have a great wife now and my two wives were very good and I don’t blame them, but I was working twenty two hours a day…
TAPPER: I’m not asking you to explain your divorces.
TRUMP: I blame myself because my business was so powerful for me…
TAPPER: But what do you say to a lesbian or a gay man who are married?
TRUMP: I really don’t say anything, I’m just for traditional marriage.
As with presidential candidate Ben Carson, they say his appeal is that he is not part of the political process, but I don’t believe for a second that the Bible is his “favorite” Book, nor do I think he really cares whether gay couples can legally wed or not (he must have gay friends), but he has demonstrated beyond a shadow of a doubt that he’s a misogynist and a racist (“Mexicans are rapists and murderers). It is my belief that he’s just playing to the amoral base of the Republican party, but we can now add heterosupremacist to his list of themed hate speech.

So then would straight marriage be ‘sarriage’?

Stone thrower Pat Fagan
Right Wing Watch (9/10/15):

"FRC Official: Call Gay Marriage 'Garriage' And Lesbian Marriage 'Larriage'"

Fagan: "If you want a generic homosexual marriage it's 'harriage.' But getting these words into use is key. And that will take time, but whomever holds the language ultimately holds the whole game."

RWW video; Fagan: "To concede the word marriage, is to … concede a huge amount of the playing field."
It's a tack used by those who're trying to present their sense of superiority in a more polite fashion, usually saying "I don't mind if gay couples have all the rights of marriage - just don’t ‘call’ it marriage."

Working for the Family Research Council, a hate group, the first half of that wouldn't apply to him, he's trying to start a supremacist meme, albeit masked.

Just remember, whenever you hear that, they’re in the same supremacist hateboat as the “God hates fags” crowd, the only difference is that SOME of them may be able to be reached, but so far I haven't had any luck.

Free will is an illusion

A few days ago I said this, somewhere:

“Free Will -- You have an infinite number of thoughts to choose from. ”

Today I relay this:
Free Will Is Fantasy

Within time-space, the very constraints thereof preclude and such theory. At physical birth, we are bound not only by our previous experience, whatever it may be, but by the genetic structure of the physical body we inhabit. From that point on, we have no choice but to be bonded into the flesh for that lifetime, long or short. We are bound to maintain and operate our physical bodies within the limitation they impose. The set and setting of our physical existence is controlled, initially at least, by others. What remains, colored and modified as it is, might be considered free will.

Exercising this upon another only increases the [karmic] load. Off-loading is accomplished by maximizing this remainder in nonphysical areas and accepting without emotion the limitations so imposed.

Ultimate Journey
Now I have to reconcile the two.

Unrecognized and therefore unintended influences that make up the matrices of my mind, or use it as an excuse to believe that the devil made me do it.

…hmm, be a good person or blame the devil… I suppose I could do both. It might be a little confusing at first but I think I could pull it off.

I was reading some news briefs over at Holy Bullies and Headless Monsters. Here’s a couple snippets followed by my always and ever special commentary.

AFA's daily prayer equates homosexuality with incest, bestiality, pedophilia:
We know that much sexual sin has been committed in our community and nation. We repent of all acts of incest, adultery, homosexuality, pedophilia, and bestiality. We acknowledge that such things are detestable to you, and that they are perversions of your intentions for us. We acknowledge that we profane your name and only defile ourselves through our sexual sin.
Randy Thomasson Claims LGBT-Inclusive Schools Make Students 'Enemies of God':
Right Wing Watch: [Randy] Thomasson said that students and families have become the victims of a “perverse, unnatural, unbiblical, unhealthy, tyrannical sexual agenda” advanced by the state government and LGBT rights advocates who seek to eliminate free speech and religious liberties.
~~~ ~~~ ~~~

They don’t even believe in the Bible.

First of all, nowhere in the Bible is homosexuality condemned. All of the so called gay-bashing Bible verses refer to males exclusively, except for Romans:
Romans 1:26 Even their women exchanged natural sexual relations for unnatural ones.
People who are born gay, like me, never “exchanged” our orientation, so it’s not referring to gay people. But the haters cling to verses like that so they can continue justifying their anti-gay bashing as a “deeply held religious belief.” If you click on that link, though, read a few sentences down and you’ll get an ultra-accurate description of these christian haters. Second, God’s “original design” for family included incest -- as per Adam and Eve’s children being “fruitful and multiplying.”

Third, God explicitly approves of polygamy.
God: I gave your master’s house to you, and your master’s wives into your arms. … I will take your wives and give them to one who is close to you, and he will sleep with your wives in broad daylight.
Fourth, Jesus clearly defined divorce and remarriage as adultery:

Mark 10:11-12: He answered, “Anyone who divorces his wife and marries another woman commits adultery against her. 12 And if she divorces her husband and marries another man, she commits adultery.”
Of course, that kind of adultery is welcomed with open arms by these faux-faith anti-gay cherry-picking cafeteria-christians. It makes their crocodile cries of “religious persecution” all the more irrational -- you can’t be persecuted for something you don’t believe in in the first place.

Heterosupremacist hypocrites to the core.
