Senator Teddy ‘canadian’ Cruz was forced to make public apology to Vice President Joe Biden. Cruz was pandering to his base, making jokes about Biden, and generally being crass. Cruz missed the memo that Mr. Biden was mourning the death of his son. Cruz is an aberration.
Cruz also maintains that he is “christian.” Point being, what passes as “christian” these days is NOT the same as what Jesus commanded of his disciples. Jesus told His disciples to “pick up your cross and follow Me.” See Biblical link –
Matthew 16:24 American Standard Version (ASV)
American Standard Version of Bible is according to one of my seminary mentors way back in the day, the “official” word of God.
Postmodern 9/11/01 global war of terror christianity is a far cry from what the New Testament posits for theological consideration. Postmodern 9/11/01 global war of terror christianity is a farce if not an abject fraud. Consider the obscenities that are Joel Osteen, Junior Graham Billy’s kid, Hagee, Huckabee, and the pages are filled with buffoons making serious bank preaching the Jebus. Jebus and not Jesus.
Okay and I have no point here. Just rambling about a very rude Teddy the canadian. Cruz is an asshole and his daddy is some manner of ziongelical fundamentalist super bigot and preacher. Not that anyone should care. Demagogues seem to have the attention of media concerns these days.
Oh well. We are certainly living in dangerously apocalyptic times.
Thus endeth the pointless sermon for Thursday the 4th day of June 2015.
