“Progressive Christians”? You've abandoned “God’s word for Marxist liberation theology" Get guns!

A former Executive Committee member of San Diego’s Republican Party, who now heads the Christian Anti-Defamation Commission, recently told Texas churchgoers that “you can’t be a Christian if you don’t own a gun.”

Speaking to the “Deliver Us From Evil” conference at the Upper Room Church in Keller, Texas earlier this week, Dr. Gary Cass explained that America had a “broken moral compass” because it regularly elected “politicians who could justify killing babies made in the image of God” and “justify redefining God’s institution of marriage.”

“We tolerate judges who allow for pornography and blasphemy, yet won’t allow us to have prayer or Bible reading in our schools,” he ranted. “Our formerly great Christian universities have become perverted factories of unfaithfulness.”


Cass blasted “progressive Christians” for abandoning “God’s word for Marxist liberation theology and in doing so have murdered their own souls.”

“By the way, I’ve got a whole sermon, you can’t be a Christian if you don’t own a gun,” he added. “That preaches in Texas, don’t it?”

“You have not just a right not bear arms, you have a duty. How can you protect yourself, your family or your neighbor if you don’t have a gun? If I’m supposed to love my neighbor and I can’t protect him, what good am I?”


"To each according to his need", indeed.

5. These people live in a fantasy world

Evolution doesn't exist, global warming is fake, gays can be "cured", you can't get pregnant if you are raped, America was founded on the Christian religion, don't have sex until you are married (even if you are 35).

6. The guys a republican.

Anyone who takes those positions, religious or irreligious, is his enemy.

It'a about politics, specifically American politics. They've been playing salugi with religion for decades.

15. Christianity isn't about politics.

I think that "preacher" needs to spend some more time reading and a less time talking. Of course there are plenty of people who profess to be Christian who love their political party more than their God. Problem is you can only serve one Master.

8. Extremists all share one thing. Attack, demean and demonize. And pare it all down to simplistic talk

Irregardless of their venues - religious, political, social - all seem to hold tight to an Us vs Them point of view. To say it's divisive is an understatement.

In this instance to say it's hate speech is not a stretch, imo.

16. LOL

"Extremists all share one thing."

followed by:

"And pare it all down to simplistic talk"

Uh, doesn't that make you an extremist?

9. Eerily similar to the way the KKK was organized, as a group to protect threatened

white Protestants.

I've said before, to many American right-wingers, guns are a form of graven images!

19. Bullets are the state of the art for throwing things, an innate pleasure mechanism for

primates. Wayne LaPierre and this goof Cass are flinging what primates usually fling.
