Using the Bible As a Prop?

When I got a comment about a Trump using a Bible as a prop and a church as backdrop (see => https://citizentom.com/2020/06/01/idle-hands-are-the-devils-workshop/comment-page-1/#comment-93681), I considered writing my own post. Instead, I wrote a comment in reply. Besides, what insanitybytes22 wrote is more than sufficient.

See, there's this thing called biology...

So let me just get this out of the way right out of the gate, many of those SJW Twitter pastors, all outraged and offended about how allegedly “the President is just using the Bible as a prop and a church as a backdrop,” are probably suffering from a bad case of projection.

Yep, I said it! We tend to hate in others what we hate in ourselves, even when we don’t recognize it. A good chunk of y’all are offended because YOU’VE been using the Bible as a prop and using a church as a backdrop. I know this because you pick and choose which parts of the Bible you believe in, you comply with the culture, and you look just like the world. Also, you cultivate fear and hatred. Then you advocate for perpetual victimhood and attempt to nurture all those delicious and quite seductive, feelings of persecution.

PLANNED PARENTHOOD STOLE $80 MILLION

Prince William-Manassas Family Alliance

James Michael Johnson (born January 30, 1972) is the U.S. Representative for Louisiana’s 4th congressional district. (from here (mikejohnson.house.gov))

What audacity! Planned Parenthood (PP) has declared assets of $2.2 billion. It’s not hurting financially. In fact, PP freely funds liberal political candidates who support their business.

Further, they were declared exempt from or defied mandatory stoppage of elective surgeries exerted on all hospitals during the height of the COVID-19 quarantine.

How brazen is that?! PP was raking in the money as they continued to perform abortions on a daily basis, even failing to observe CDC regulations for social isolation. Yet, PP dared to steal money from the pockets of business owners who observed the mandatory closure and had to meet payrolls!

During the time when businesses are/were shuttered and small…

A DEMOCRAT’S VIEW ON THE RIOTS

On the Pilgrim Road

The video below shows Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms delivering a speech on the riots over the death of George Floyd. She is worth taking the time to hear.

Here (11alive.com) for those who prefer it is the text of the mayor’s speech.

Is Mayor Bottoms perfect from a Conservative’s point of view? No. The speech above is okay, but the interview below contains nonsense. It is kind of funny that a mayor thinks she should tell the president to shut up, but those are the times.

Bottoms also repeats the old lie about Trump supporting white supremacists in during the riots in Charlottesville, VA. The news media took Trump’s words completely out of context, and they are still repeating that lie. For all I know the mayor believes the lie.

Mayor Bottoms is attractive and well-spoken. A good mayor? Perhaps, but only God is perfect. We cannot expect, and…

IDLE HANDS ARE THE DEVIL’S WORKSHOP

On the Pilgrim Road

Raised fists (picture from here (leb.fbi.gov)). The raised fist is a symbol of solidarity often used by leftists (see here (en.wikipedia.org)).

Since extreme “social” distancing, the economic shutdown, has put large numbers of people out of work, and the weather has begun to warm up, riots were almost predictable. Given almost any excuse, idle people will riot.

Are the riots about the killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis, MN by a rogue police officer? No. Why not? Consider this paraphrasing of the Bible.

Proverbs 16:27-29 Living Bible (TLB)

27 Idle hands are the devil’s workshop; idle lips are his mouthpiece.[a]

28 An evil man sows strife; gossip separates the best of friends.

29 Wickedness loves company—and leads others into sin.[b]

As Is “idle hands are the devil’s workshop” a biblical statement? (gotquestions.org), the expression “idle hands are the devil’s workshop” is not…
