Important Updates to the Kim Davis Soap Opera
I highly recommend you read ALL the links in the following article regarding the Pope’s “meeting” with Kim Davis:
If you notice that the site is critical of “right wing” politics, please do not swoon and dismiss it entirely. The links it highlights are all to high-quality news sources, that help clarify what happened there concerning the Pope’s “brush with greatness” (i.e., Kim Davis), and separates facts from fiction.
It appears that the Papal Ambassador to Washington DC has a old score to settle with the Papal Office, and “pulled a fast one” on the Pope (he is also an ardent Davis supporter).
The most important facets to me are the two times documented in these links that Davis’s “Christian” council Matt Staver of the Liberty Council (tied to Liberty University) lied to the public about the extent of Davis’ support overseas, and the death threats from The View. Not only did he not even validate the data IF it was not intentional as an attorney, but none of the other Christian sources had as well. Where is the due diligence from the Christian media?
Liberty University has a track record with this. For a long time they covered for the fraud Ergun Caner, who was the head of their seminary, slandering and belittling his whistleblowers until they no longer could, then quietly shelved the issue.
The Religious Right cannot figure out why their evangelical message does not “work” anymore, and assume that any who point out their hypocrisy and disingenuity are merely “Christian persecutors”, and try to spread their illicit reputation to innocent Christians at large as fellow subjects of attack. They have not grasped yet how irrelevant they are, caused by their own hand, and evidently do not have use of a mirror when seeking causes for their plight.
For this reason I agree with most of the public in seeing no credibility with the Religious Right or most Christian media. These days when they speak I assume they are lying and/or I am being conned (to their monetary benefit), and it is sad to feel that way; I liked it better when I was in blissful ignorance.
Don’t let these jokers fool you into thinking that critics of them like me have “forsaken Christ” and have just become an “enemy of the Gospel”; today I love, worship and follow Jesus stronger than I ever have, have good and trustworthy pastoral leadership in a local church (and hope you find such as well), and find the Bible the only valid voice of God’s will, worthy for instruction, reproof, etc. when used in a responsible and wise way, and subject to the Holy Spirit’s unique direction with every person and situation I encounter. I no longer seek or regard “their” guidance, just like my “old school” Baptist forbearers centuries ago, who would be just as befuddled and dismayed at their hijinx as I am. Spiritual “buyers” beware – listen to all their rantings with a high degree of skepticism, and keep your hand on your wallet (and electoral ballot).
