‘Bishop’ Harry Jackson: Homosexuality is Satanic, but Greed – Which Kills More People Every Second Than Homosexuality Ever Has or Ever Could – is Okay

To say otherwise would hurt capitalism’s wittle feewings…

oh, not to mention ‘Bishop’ Jackson’s bottom line:

Bishop Harry Jackson is a former college middle linebacker who can still hit hard.

He once described same-sex marriage as a satanic plot to destroy the family, called on Republicans to get “political Viagra” and said African-Americans needed to abandon what he called the Gospel of Victimization.

Jackson is not shy about stirring up controversy, but he stops short when it comes to preaching about greed. The Maryland bishop said he encourages his congregation to get through the Great Recession by saving and sharing. But he doesn’t want to alienate well-off members by talking about what’s behind the nation’s economic woes.

“I’ve got to watch it,” said Jackson, pastor at Hope Christian Church in Beltsville, Maryland. “I could get into some big teaching on greed, but the reality is that a lot of that teaching may wind up creating anti-economic-growth and anti-capitalism concepts (in people’s minds). … I always talk about personal responsibility so we don’t get into the blame game.”

Love those abstractions, eh?

Personal responsibility…

Spreading democracy…

States’ Rights…

Who needs Goebbels when we have a ten-(thousand)-clone of Orwell?

It isn’t hard to figure out why nobody in the religious community cares. A lot of the more fervent Christians are also Republicans, who really couldn’t give a rat’s a$s about poor people, despite what their religion says

Nothing’s more taboo than the truth.
