Such as in this Mitchell report on MSNBC.
For those of you unaware, Foster Friess is a the millionaire businessman financially backing the ever irrelevant Rick Santorum. Friess has, with the above comment, once again made Christianity look completely out of touch with the world in which we live.
Why does this continue to irritate me, you may ask? Because the message of Christianity (the Gospel) has absolutely nothing to do with sex, but with Jesus. Unfortunately, Mr. Friess, Santorum, Gingrich, Romney, along with millions of unquestioning followers believe that it does. Thus the rush to condemn President Obama’s insistence that Catholic run public institutions that receive government monies have within their insurance plans, for employees, coverage for birth control.
This is not Obama’s war on religion, that you hear parroted by men so eager for power that they will say anything to garner a few more votes. This is about the rights of women. Period.
Why has the fundamentalist wing of the evangelical and Catholic churches spent so much time, energy and money trying to get people, not affiliated with either, to adhere to what they believe? I find it rather fascinating that those that scream the loudest about getting the government out of our personal lives, insist on trying to run the sex lives of all Americans. They have tried to limit access to birth control, outlaw some sexual practices such as anal sex (which surprisingly is practiced by more straight couples than gay couples), and infringe on the rights of some Americans to have equal rights in choosing a marriage partner.
Here is what Jesus said about sex….
Here is what Jesus said about how we relate too and treat other people…love them as you love yourself.
Lets try to follow what Jesus said for a change and stop trying to make non-Christians live morally, like Christians, when apparently we can’t even do it.
