From a FB friend: As best I can tell, Southern Christian values means...

As best I can tell Southern Christian values means:

1) Obeying the Bible, except when it's inconvenient. You know, like not sleeping with other people's spouses. See: Newt Gingrich, David Vitter, Mark Sanford, Calista Gingrich, and on and on.

2) Protecting the lives of children. Well, unborn children. Once they are born, however, they are on their own including fighting off poverty or Roy Moore.

3) Upholding the U.S. Constitution, unless you decide you don't like whom the Constitution is protecting.

4) All Americans are created equal. BWA HA HA! We know this really means all straight rich white men are created equal.

5) Gun deaths are just another word for LET FREEDOM RING!

6) Democracy. Except it's okay to disenfranchise black people.

7) Judge lest not ye be judged. BWA HA HA! Just kidding.

8) America first. As long as it's okay with Russia.

9) Lying is a sin, unless you're testifying under oath in front of Congress.

1. Equality for women

means they can work outside the home but it's ok if they don't make as much money and they still have to do all of the housework and childcare since they are the husbands helpmeet (whatever the hell that is).


BTW: From personal experience ans yes I left his ass.

3. Every other time term translated as helpmeet is used in OT it refers to GOD

And then it's translated as one who fights alongside you and protects you. Gives very different idea of role of women!!

Just another instance where translator bias distorted the text.

See Junia Project webpage for discussion of other biased translations. Project takes name from woman addressed in one of Paul's letters as 'Junia, an apostle of Jesus.' Since everyone KNOWS all the apostles were male, translators used a male form of the name which occurs no where else in the language (Greek).

4. For me it meant I was suppose to be subordinate and support his goals

I hate religion now. It sucked way about a decade of my life when I was vulnerable and frankly I was almost killed. Apparently helpmeet includes ass kicking too.

8. The way you experienced it is way fundamentalists interpret it

I'm really sorry you went thru that.

[The accurate translation is not being shared with the average person in the pew.

In the 80s, I read about this is in a book by a woman theologian. In the early 90s I had the chance to ask some women theologians about this.]

The accurate translation has now appeared in discussions on the internet. The internet has really started to destroy the power of church leaders. People are now able to check out things for themselves.

13. Just like how the church initially resisted printing bibles & resisted translating into vernacular


... translating into vernacular, which is the common language of the people (of whatever country). Because then people were not quite so much in thrall of the priesthood.

It was and is ever thus with the oppressive power structure known as organized religion.

11. Southern-fried hypocrisy

All cultures are guilty of this, to be sure - but Deep South conservatives take it to a whole 'nother level.

12. Also Under "Protecting the lives of children"

Protecting lives of children unless your mistress is carrying the unborn child. Then it is okay for you to encourage her to get rid of it.

16. It is literately driving me crazy

The overwhelming degree of hypocrisy repeatedly demonstrated by these people of "GOD" is overwhelming me. It is only a matter of time before one of them makes another inane statement that is a direct contradiction of the teachings of Christ before I lose it.

The statement about abortion is spot on. Save the fetus, destroy the child.

Before a Republican says or does anything, they need to ask themselves one thing, would Abraham Lincoln approve?

17. these are only venial sins... so they are ok...

They aren't mortal sins, like homosexuality, or being a democrat, so no big deal. Just confess to god and ask forgiveness.
