More biblical illiteracy from NOM

Timothy Kincaid

December 2nd, 2009

In a recent statement, National Organization for Marriage’s Brian Brown once again illustrates that his familiarity with his own Christian religion and its holy texts are only marginally better than that of an atheist raised as a Buddhist in Abu Dhabi.

In responding to the vote for Marriage in the nation’s capital, he declared (for the umpteenth time) that NOM would continue its fight to oppose equality.

We will fight in Congress. We will fight through the courts to get this to the people of D.C. who have a God-given right to vote for marriage and Charter-given right to overturn the council’s decision.


A God-given right to vote for marriage?
What kind of nonsense is that?

Scripture doesn’t endorse democracy, in fact quite the opposite. Kings are set up by God to rule the people and it is your duty to obey them.

Hmmmm. Come to think of it, I’ll bet Brian Brown really would support a “biblical model” for government. For all his endorsement of democracy, he seems pretty fond of theocracy.

The word vote in any form (voted, votes, voting) does not appear in the King James version of the Bible.

I don’t see anywhere where people have the right to vote for violating other people’s equal treatment under the law. Sorry, idiots.

More accurately, the Old Testament supported pure theocracy. God appointed kings because the Hebrews whined and God wanted to demonstrate how a king would harm them, which is what happens. The New Old Testament supports a strong separation of God and State. “A man cannot serve two masters. He will hate one and love the other.” Jesus’ Kingdom of God was unrelated to the Kingdom of Caesar.
