blank'/> Liberally Lean From The Land Of Dairy Queen: Ellis County Commissioners More Godly . . .

1.22.2008

Ellis County Commissioners More Godly . . .


. . . than Wise County Commissioners. Why? Because even though Ellis County has nothing to do do with abortion law or policy, they have declared this week "Sanctity of Human Life Week." The proclamation states, in part, that the "Ellis County Commissioners Court is committed to protecting society's most vulnerable members – those born and unborn." (A note of confusion if I may: Those "born" are also society's most vulnerable? Even those Ultimate Fighting guys who, the best I can tell, were "born"?)

Commissioner Bill Dodson, who apparently thinks he is a Fundamentalist Baptist King James Only Minister instead of an elected official of a podunk county, said he is a strong supporter of the resolution.

"I won't say it's against [Roe vs.] Wade, but it's definitely trying to prevent any conception out of marriage," he said. (Uh, another note of confusion: He's wants the proclamation to prevent any conception outside of marriage? What about the conception that leads to a pretty white 8 lb. 6 oz. baby that is adopted by God fearing parents? He wants to deprive them of that? So let it be written, so let it be done?)

Anyway, Wise County Commissioners, you gonna be upstaged like that? Do you not care about the sanctity of the unborn (and, oh yeah, the born)? You gonna make us look like were a community that tolerates Wiccans? Oh, wait.

The war in Congo has killed 5.4 million people. Will people be obsessing about them for the next 60 years? Of course not, no one cares now.

Why is this going to get ugly? Just because Wise County would rather celebrate the lifestyle of the wiccan and not the "unborn and born" (what is that quote? you would think going to school would help people learn to come up with the proper way to put things into English)of this county.

More power to Ellis County! If I've said it once, I've said it a thousand times---the only positive associated with abortion is that it will eventually lead to the demise of all liberal, pro-abortion weenies!

Do you think they might consider the "Woman's right to choose week", just to keep it fair?

Barry - don't be bad-mouthing the county of MY birth. Be careful about throwing around the term podunk as well - I've seen a lot of podunk things in Wise County since I've been here the past 11 years. I guess displaying the Confederate flag in the Wise County courthouse wouldn't be considered podunk.

And since I'm also Catholic, more power to the Ellis County Commissioners.

Facts are facts. Here's one for you to contemplate: the US serious crime rate began actually declining some 20 years after the Roe v. Wade decision. Why? The data suggests many low income women who didn't want and couldn't provide for a child had legal abortions. So a long term result of the Roe decision was lower crime. Controversial? You bet. But real.

The Devil said...

Let's here from the abstinence only crowd, that really seems to work! Just ask the Catholics...works so well for them, they do not even need birth control.

If we all could just become Christians, abortion would no longer be an issue...gay sex in bathroom stalls may rise, but at least we would solve that whole abortion thing!

mzchief said...

Hmmmm....
Does this mean since the Ellis County Commissioners are "definitely trying to prevent any conception out of marriage" they will be paying for and handing out condoms and birth control pills to EVERY unwed person who might make sexy time during "Sanctity of Human Life Week"? Probably NOT since this appears to be MORE Right Wing Religicans attempting to foist upon the public THEIR personal definition of morality.

Within the United States, it should NEVER be the business of government to dictate MORALITY to the public just as it should NEVER be religion that dictates LAWS to the public. If such a thing is encouraged and tolerated the United States is no different than ANY other theocracy.

What a pity the public did not decide to interpret the first line of the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution to mean that the government would make no law respecting an establishment of religion but decided it meant that the government would respect and establish the Christian religion as the religion from which the public should choose. By granting tax exempt status to ANY religion the government is indeed establishing and respecting religion.

There is a VAST difference between "In God We Trust" and "In Jesus We Trust". Sadly, most Christians are soooo thoroughly brainwashed or deluded they are UNAWARE of the difference.

Those believing in God and objecting to abortion on that basis almost NEVER are willing to appreciate that their God performs more abortions each year than all women on the planet combined.

Hello Ellis County! In honor of the born and unborn (am I leaving anyone out?) I'm opening up my medical practice this week right here in Ellis County. I've got a Thursday Abortion Special running through February and remember to check the local paper for my Abortion Coupons.

All Health Insurance and Christians Welcome!

Newark Times said...

Wise county sends out 500 dollar checks to Newark women who have abortions. It's part of the "Crime stopper" program.

MZguided strikes again with her heretical venom.

John 1 v.1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
v.14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us (and we beheld his glory, the glory as the only begotten of the Father), full of grace and truth.

Whether you accept it or not, the truth stands on it's own. There not only is no VAST difference between God and Jesus, there is NO difference. The God you worship is one you have conjured up in your own mind for your own convenience. Sadly, you are the one who is unaware of the truth.

Another Brainwashed, Deluded Christian.

er...4:30, if you're going to use scripture to make your argument (and counter hers)...you may have just put an exclamation point on her argument.

To anonymous 4:30...
Thank you for proving my point AND having the lucidity to recognize that you are indeed BRAINWASHED and DELUDED.

Just because YOUR religion's Big Book of Myths and Fables lays claim to GOD does not mean it is the ONLY religion to do so or even has the RIGHT to do so.

Incidentally, the Pagans claimed ownership of GOD eons before Jews or Christians.

Do you ALSO believe the end of the world is occurring on Dec. 21, 2012 because that is what is believed by a segment of the population who have declared the Mayan calendar as the Official Keeper of the World's Time? That bandwagon is just the thing for you, after all it is based upon an ancient document/method of determining events and MUST be the truth so long as you do not ask too many questions or attempt to employ logic.

Anonymous said...

Can we agree that Muslims, Jews, Christians (Roman and Orthodox) and others believe in God? It's just that their definition of God seems to differ. As far as I know, John never saw a heavenly God or talked with Him. While Roman Christianity has a tripartite God, the other religions maintain a monotheistic God. How can so many believe so absolutely but at the same time so differently?

"Religion easily has the best bullshit story of all time. Think about it. Religion has convinced people that there’s an invisible man…living in the sky. Who watches everything you do every minute of every day. And the invisible man has a list of ten specific things he doesn’t want you to do. And if you do any of these things, he will send you to a special place, of burning and fire and smoke and torture and anguish for you to live forever, and suffer, and burn, and scream, until the end of time. But he loves you. He loves you. He loves you and he needs money."

P.S. I never could understand that Trinity stuff, you know, 4:30PM, the father, son, holy spirit thing. You probably prefer I substitute holy ghost for holy spirit. Can you explain that to me right here on this blog, please, 4:30PM? And, while you're at it, can you tell me exactly what that Word is? In just one word please? Thanks so very much.

Hey 4:00PM....get some new rhetoric, will ya? The word "establish" in the first amendment referred to the establishment of a religious entity that would be running the government...just as they had in England. Read a book....

Barry is bored and wants a really good lawsuit on this kind of thing in the county of his youth.

And he wants to be the lawyer for this issue (?) and get a lot of publicity for it.....

And if Barry thinks this county is podunk, he can go back to Tarrant County where he once worked.

Why come back to Wise County Barry when you could have gotten a lot more brownie points in Cowtown?

Hummmmmm!

5:30 - the author of this blog was reared Baptist. Send him a personal email with your question. Besides being a Baptist, he is a lawyer. He CAN give you an answer to your question. That is what Baptists and lawyers do.......

May be worth a try!

May save your life now, and for eternity!

MZ,

"...most Christians are soooo thoroughly brainwashed or deluded they are UNAWARE of the difference."

Why do you sit in judgment of Christians? We don't ask for footbaths in airport restrooms or our own public/private schools. Michael Vick gets prison for killing his dogs and you rag on him and all athletes for their lack of appreciation of animal rights and intelligence.

These guys aren't dictating anything... they only express publicly the "Sanctity of Human Life", born or unborn. It's no different than the Mayor of San Francisco promoting pornography and gay marriage for political popularity.

Nobody rags your "karma". Nobody disrespects your right to your own beliefs. The PEOPLE DECIDE who and what they want in the political arena. We the people, not the politicians. As long as 80% of Americans are Christians, your opinion on the subject is rather moot. If all Christians are idiots, (due to their belief in the "Big Book of Myths and Fables") why do you constantly argue, bicker and squabble with them? Do you need to feel superior? If you want to be more effective, you might want to stick with the economy, immigration and celebrities, I think you will find more appreciation of your genius.

Barry,

"Commissioner Bill Dodson, who apparently thinks he is a Fundamentalist Baptist King James Only Minister instead of an elected official of a podunk county, said he is a strong supporter of the resolution."

You are the last person on earth who needs to be name calling and judging people in an effort to make your blog more interesting.

Double Fake George Carlin,

In response to your 2 questions: 1) I cannot explain the Holy Trinity except in that it is too complex for man to get his small brain around and that God can manifest Himself however He chooses; and 2) the Word I referred to is JESUS. There's your one word answer. You're welcome.

4:56 Opinions are meaningless. God's word has existed since the beginning of time and will persist long after we and our opinions are gone.

But, one day every knee will bow and every tongue confess that Jesus is Lord---yes even mzchief.

I think I know that jesus dude. You're talking about that mexican that mows the grass down there by the Trinity river on Friday and Tuesday, right? His cousin works over at my uncle's junk yard. Sometimes they come by on weekends and help me plant shrubbery, drink a few beers and bbq a goat or something. They're cool but I still don't get why they think my wife's name is Puta. Oh well, for 8 bucks an hour I guess I'm not gonna get a Rhode's scholar to operate a shovel, eh!

-nonomoho 1:59,
You are exactly right. That is why there are a lot more Liberals in Heaven than Conservatives. That Abortion stuff is a shortcut straight to God. No sin and all of that like on them Church BillBoards. IE: The Wages of Sin Is Death!!!!!
SIN, Sin, Sin...... Sin Blah,, Sin this, Sin That,,,Sin Blah, Yadda Sin, yadda....
These are pure, snow-white no sin Liberal souls that do not have to go through all of that being saved and washed from sins stuff and get a free ticket straight to Heaven and hold the hand of God! Now, there will be plenty of Conservative Souls at other Locations so you will not be Lonely when Your Time Comes.

Until God allows those men on the Ellis County Commissioner's Court to give birth, they should stay out of any declarations on the sanctity of human life.

At the first birth pang dear old Baptist Bill Dodson would be the first to ask for a.......

..lethal injection.....

....as would a lot of other weak wimpy men, lawyers or not.

To Denney Crane...
This Advert from the CHRISTIAN hate mongers at the Westboro Baptist Church who have the website godhatesfags.com should go a LONG way to explaining my DISDAIN and WELL justified DISGUST for the mental illness that is CHRISTIANITY. Incidentally, I do not hate anyone or anything but then again I am NOT a Christian.

I will be MIA for the remainder of the day and much of the evening. However, I will GLADLY more fully address your questions regarding my opinions of RELIGION and especially Chrisianity.

Make yours a GREAT day.
Cheers!

I wonder how many pro life folks have ever seriously considered adopting an unwanted child? How many of you contribute your time or money to organizations that support unwanted and/or abused children? It is our actions, not our words, which define us.

As a person of faith, who attends a Christian church, I feel that it is not my place to impose my personal beliefs on others. Therefore, while I personally would not have an abortion, I do not feel that a woman's right to choose should be legislated by the government. It is unfortunate that the words and actions of a few Christians have made the issue of faith so divisive in our country.

Christians are not evil, and non-Christians are not evil. Hatred and judgment are evil.

All this time I thought it was Mad Cow disease, but I've been diagnosed with Christianity. OMG...thank goodness someone has a cure and I won't have any Mad Calves...

So, in your judgment, is everyone who belongs to the Westboro Baptist Church a Christian? Does that mean everyone who says they are Baptist are also Christians? Do Christians always behave as a Christian should or do they fall short, giving the world another reason to hate and judge them?

The worst thing that ever happened to Christianity is religion. Christianity is a faith and a way of life, as referenced in the New Testament. Am I a counterfeit Christian if I choose to disagree with certain parts of the New Testament?

10:12 AM

"It is our actions, not our words, which define us." Sorry, but your words just defined you...

As "a person of faith" you think the law should allow abortion. What you "think" is a contradiction of the New Testament, which is what Christianity is based on.
"The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law." 1 Corinthians 15:56

It is your words and actions as a "person of faith" that help make the "issue of faith so divisive in our country". It is faith, not reason or opinion that constitutes a "believer" or "follower" of Christ. Christ hated the sin, but loved the sinner. He believed in forgiveness, but He will not extend it to those who don't want it or ask for it.

Your and my opinion are both meaningless when truth about Christianity is involved. It is what it is...no matter what you or I think.

I hate religion. It almost destroyed me. Christianity is simple, yet difficult. Sharing Christ's love is our purpose; and all that implies.

I am the biggest hypocrite of all...but, I'm not wrong...

So when they come around and ask me if I know Jesus, I tell them "Yea, I know Jesus...we crashed in the mountains and I had to eat him.
