The Sanctity of Marriage, Tea Party Style



Remember how people claimed marriage equality would destroy  the sanctity of marriage?

Well, here are some of the leading lights of the Tea Party who believe in the sanctity of marriage so much that between the 4 of them, they've serial-married for a total of 14 times. And the people who howled the most about those icky gays "shoving their icky marriages down our throats" have zero to say about serial marriages and divorces.  

They're even dreaming of having one of them in the White House with his third and current centerfold wife.

And only Davis is a Democrat. Somehow that figures, she doesn't want to do her job. Maybe she should join a union so they can stand up for her rights. Does this mean democrats stay married longer?

She should either quit her job or get fired for non performance. Like the Muslim flight attendant who refused to serve alcohol, you knew what the job was before you took it.

skud the troll is at it again, Shaw. "And only Davis is a Democrat" mean? skud must be ignorant of the fact that there are CONSERVATIVE Democrats in the south and this Davis kook is one of them. The Tea Party are afraid of Sharia Law? What a friggin joke that is because they're cheering on someone who believes in imposing her religious beliefs on everyone? Isn't that what the Tea Party is afraid of happening with the Muslims?

I find it amusing that if Kim Davis had lived in those Bible days of yore she would have been stoned (not in a good way) for divorce or some such long before she got to the fourth marriage.

The Modern Fundamentalist's Song
Modern Fundamentalist:
I am the very model of a Christian fundamentalist
And by a strange coincidence a solid occidentalist.
I cherry-pick the Bible for the verses close or distantly
Amenable to straight white males, however inconsistently,
Unless those verses might apply a little inconveniently
In which case I interpret them a good deal more than leniently.
We want to do just what we please however strange or horrible
And still regard ourselves as wholly moral and adorable.

Congregation:
We want to do just what we please however strange or horrible
And still regard ourselves as wholly moral and adorable.
And still regard ourselves as wholly moral and adorable.

MF:
I call myself a Christian but it's really Paulist cultery
Since Christ himself has said that my divorces were adultery.
But I from man to man enjoy convexness and concavity
And call whatever others do immoral and depravity.

Cong:
But we from man to man enjoy convexness and concavity
And call whatever others do immoral and depravity.

MF:
I do not want to hear about the quantum or molecular
Or how the Founding Fathers made our institutions secular
I say the nation's Christian under Biblical authorities
Rejecting what the Constitution says about majorities.
The workings of the government may worry and perplex you all
I say we're equal under God -- unless you're homosexual --
Or black or brown or female or some kind of evolutionist
For all attempts at reasoning are really persecutionist.

Cong:

MF:
My freedom of religion trumps your Constitutionality
Because the Constitution says it does with firm legality.
I claim my rights from God or man, whichever's more commodious
For what I want to do however evil, vile, or odious.

Cong:

MF:
When I can issue licenses or not because I feel like it
The public's just my piggy and the public can just squeal like it.
I'll happily apply whichever law is most agreeable
To what I want to do since what I want is unforseeable:
The conscience of the person must control the way they view their job
And not demands that public servants ought to serve and do their job.
The Constitution's man-made law and God is not endorsing it;
The SCOTUS made their law, and now good luck to them enforcing it.

Cong:

MF:
There's nothing in my creed that advocates for love officially
Except some quotes that God and Jesus handed down judicially --
I don't see why I must obey the acts of which God sent a list
And yet I am the model of a Christian fundamentalist.

Cong:
We don't see why we must obey the acts of which God sent a list
And yet we are the models of a Christian fundamentalist.
