Yoho Won't Apologize For 'Loving His God'

Last edited Sun Jul 26, 2020, 01:40 PM - Edit history (1)

“I cannot apologize for my passion or for loving my God, my family, and my country,”


No one is asking you to apologize for loving God, Congressman Yoho.

As a person who claims the mantle of Christianity, you might want to apologize to Jesus.

Matthew 5:22

But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire.


Those are words from the founding document of Mr. Yoho's religion. Speaking as a cynic of religion, I reserve my judgement for the virtue signalling associated with Mr. Yoho's supposed courage in declaring his faith.

Unlike Stephen the Martyr, you won't suffer a barrage of rocky missiles for declaring your association with the Christian faith, Mr. Yoho. You don't deserve brownie points for loving your family or a Medal of Honor for loving your country.

The majority of the human race feels love for their individual families and every single person you despise in Congress is there because they love their country. They wouldn't be putting in the effort to work along side of you if they didn't.

And--not to take anything away from Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez--but George Floyd undoubtedly loved his family. He left behind a daughter and he called out for his mother with his last breath. Lt. Col Alexander Vindman loves his country. That's why he chose to serve in our military. And that's why he chose to risk his military career to speak Truth to Powder and honor our democracy.

You may have tried to position yourself as a brave stalwart of decency and righteousness when you chose to evoke God, Family and Country in your statement regarding your recent behavior, Mr. Yoho. But the truth is, when you were asked to do something difficult--namely, own up to your words and actions--you betrayed yourself for the hypocritical coward that you are.

6. As i've posted elsewhere, In Yahoo's world loving God is a cover for male domination.

So in this sick logic demeaning a woman with slurs is OK. There's an expression: "What you're filled with inside will overflow to the outside." This type of misogynist, abusive behavior towards women doesn't just happen. It's nurtured. Men usually mirror their fathers' bad behavior. We've yet to see Yahoo's wife & daughters come out in his defense and i don't doubt during his growing up years he probably witnessed his dad call his mom such pejoratives. It's likely that's the kind of language he subjects his wife & daughters to at home.

11. You, Mr. Yoho, are a coward through and through. Nothing else to say other than 'man up' and ...

admit you're wrong, and apologize. What an outstanding character trait to pass along to the members of your own family and your voters, who now seen you in the harsh light of reality when you caught red handed.

I seriously think that you need to be thrown out of office, since you seem to have hostility towards quite a few people. Hostility doesn't make bills or get things negotiated to a fair and equable agreement among all players in a conference room and that's one of the main purposes you're there in Washington, DC, to negotiate bills on behalf of all of your voters.

Do the job you were sent to Washington DC for.

Or resign. Show everybody that you can be a man and do the right thing, but unfortunately, I don't think this is going to happen, being that your entire republican party seems to be stuck in "I know I'm wrong but being the d**khead I'm am, I'll never admit I'm wrong!".

Talk about trying to change the subject Mr. Yoho. From his calling A.O.C. a fucking bitch to
his belief in a deity as the real subject.




Why did I know he would look like this?

"Love Of God" never impresses me, even when it may seem sincere.

Not a fan of religion, and I love it people with more knowledge of the scriptures use them to turn on the so-called true believers. Who almost certainly haven't read the bible from cover to cover.

Especially those pesky words in red.

Especially ones like these

Judge not, that you be not judged. For with the judgment you pronounce you will be judged, and the measure you give will be the measure you get. Why do you see the speck that is in your brother’s eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye? Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when there is the log in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother’s eye. (Matt 7:1-5)

37. The passion that Right Wingers

display towards money is fascinating given that the Bible they claim to follow specifically states that the love of money is the root of all evil.

Please note: that's the "love of" ,not the substance itself. Other Bible trivia for the uninformed (often those who purport to follow it closely) is that there is no mention of an apple in the story of The Fall and the last book of the Christian Bible is named "Revelation", singular, not "Revelations".

Sorry for pontificating, but those are little peeves of mine.
