As the title of this post implies, the topic is compelled by a nonsensical question posed by feo. Before I get to it, there are two other statements he made on which I wish to comment. Don't bother trying to find them, I've been deleting his comments due to restrictions placed upon him due to his ongoing hateful behavior. But these comments and the questions I thought were worth saving until I had the time to compose a post about them that will demonstrate once again how foolish he insists on being. Let's begin:
"In christian theology marriage is a sacrament of the presence of God in the love two people have for each other."
Remember, this is a guy who brags about his vast knowledge and understanding of the Christian faith and his overall intellectual superiority. The above may be an example merely of hasty composition, but it's really not much of a definition. That is, it wouldn't pass the editor's approval due to it's sloppiness and lack of precision. Here's a far better definition:
In Christian theology, the sacrament of marriage is the union of one man and one woman who, in the sight of God and for His glory, vow to love, honor and serve each other faithfully, forsaking all others, until death parts them.
That's far more accurate a representation of what a Christian marriage is. Indeed, that's what is actually is in fact.
"I like rubbing your nose in who you are given that you (sic) spine bends that far back."
Since the first time he's darkened this blog by his arrogant and condescending presence, as if he's ever presented reason to justify such attitudes, he has either failed to understand who I am, or, more likely, lacks the honesty to acknowledge who I am. For example, despite repeated requests for evidence to support the charge, he likes to think I'm racist. I've no doubt that's just his self-loathing white guilt talking and I pray that when he gets the psychological counseling he so desperately needs then that issue will be addressed as well as all the others.
As to spine, I'm not sure exactly what he means there. But he hasn't demonstrated he has the spine to engage in honest discourse without the nasty, hateful pettiness. He likely is referring to his charge that I dodge his accusations or something to that effect. An absurd charge to say the least. It's a defensive tactic when faced with that which his "intellect" fails to provide a legitimate and compelling response. I'd actually have to be an incredible coward to run from the lame and infantile rhetoric and accusations he constantly puts forth. I mean, it's not like he offers up anything that I'd consider a real stumper. And the question (more of a demand, really) to which I referred is a good example:
"Try to explain to me how baking a cake for a gay wedding supports gay marriage but voting for a racist isn't supporting racism."
No "trying" required, first of all.
To provide anything for the celebration of sexual immorality, which he refers to as "a 'gay' wedding", is to take part in the celebration. That's obvious. It doesn't matter whether one provides a product or service for free or if one charges for doing so. It is taking part in the celebration either way. Certainly, one's participation ends once the product or service is delivered, but taking part it is nonetheless. Promoters of sexual immorality like to pretend that isn't the case, but the whole purpose of the product or service being requested is to celebrate that immoral and depraved union. To provide that product or service acknowledges that the union of two of the same sex can actually be a marriage. Such acknowledgement is support for the notion. As such a union cannot be a marriage, to acknowledge the union of a same-sex couple is to affirm that it can. That's called support for the notion. "You are charged with supporting the revolution against our president!" "No! I just provided the guns!" That dog, as they say, just won't hunt.
The question seeks to prove that I support a racist. There are two problems with this:
1. Trump isn't a racist and there's no evidence, hard or otherwise, that proves he is. There is evidence he is not. For instance:
Of course to sad and pathetic self-loathing people suffering from white guilt, if you're white, you're racist. That's feo.
2. But let's assume that I voted for an actual racist, just for the sake of argument. Does that mean that I support racism? It certainly would be if I was a racist as well, and voted for the person because the person's a racist. But might there be legitimate reasons why one might vote for a racist? Of course. It's the lesser of two evils dynamic, just like it was in reality with the choice between Trump and Clinton: the desire to prevent a far worse candidate from winning. I don't have to like a person personally in order to vote for that person, particularly if I think that person, despite that person's faults, is unquestionably a better choice than the other person, or said another way, that the other person is far worse and needs to never win an election ever.
What's more, a racist (or any other foul person) who is a conservative, or simply favors most of the same things I favor, would be the better choice over the other person whose positions I totally oppose. And that's another point of relevance. Trump is not a free trade guy. I am. But does my vote for him mean I support protectionism? In politics, as in love, it's next to impossible to find a perfect fit in an off the rack world.
Of course, it would be hard to find a conservative who is a racist. Racists are almost always leftists who vote Democrat...the party of racists. feo's a racist. He hates his own race. By his logic, allowing him to comment here means I support racism. But I clearly don't support anything about a sad and pathetic little "man" like feo, except his visiting here to engage in discourse in a respectful and courteous manner regardless of who attacks him personally...because he'll be deleted if he doesn't. He's earned that special status.
So that should answer his question quite completely. Let's see if he's smart enough and honest enough to acknowledge that it has been answered, and answered in a manner that can no longer allow him to pretend I've supported racism by voting for Trump. Don't anybody hold their breath.
