In Their Image

Ephesians 5:22-33

22 Wives, submit yourselves to your own husbands as you do to the Lord. 23 For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, his body, of which he is the Savior. 24
Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit to their husbands in everything.

For many, it is difficult to understand women serving at State or Federal levels who are diligently working against what took decades, if not centuries, for women to attain. No one can understand why these women are working against their own gender and benefit.

What everyone seem to overlook is that these women are religious fanatics, they will not object or go against men in their circle. Ephesians 5:22-33 is a clear example of what these women have been taught to believe since birth.

Many Republicans and all the members of the Tea Party are religious fanatics and in States where they have secured the Governorship or the majority of the State Legislature they are working frantically in passing laws aimed at crushing and destroying women’s rights.

They haven’t stopped at State level, but thankfully the Senate is still under the control of the Democrats and they haven’t been able to push their agenda nationwide.

These Republicans like to think they are “holier than thou,” most call themselves pro-life but in reality they are pro-fetus or as someone said, pro-pregnancy because most of them don’t give a damn about a child once it has been born. Perhaps it’s the proximity of the child to the vagina during birth that repulse them and make them lose interest on what once was their only objective; all I know is that while it was a zygote, an embryo or a fetus it was sacred but once is born it loses importance. If the mother is poor, then it is seen as a parasite or an excuse for the mother “to live in the lap of luxury” thanks to the government and their tax dollars. I don’t know which is it, all I know is that once the child is born, is no longer significant for them.

These people say that they want small government, if anyone mentions any restrictions on guns, as simple and logical as a background check, they’ll scream that the government wants to infringe on their rights and on their privacy – they’ll go berserk over a piece of metal – but they see no problem whatsoever in telling women what they can or can’t do with their bodies or their decisions. They have thought of everything imaginable to control what happens in a woman’s womb: ultrasounds, probes, mandatory waiting periods… you name it, they’ve thought of it and presented their ideas to the legislature in the form of a bill. If it involves a vagina, then it’s game and they believe it’s perfectly reasonable for them to have the right to decide, to invade and intrude a woman’s vagina, a woman’s life and a woman’s decision… Talk about rights and invasion of privacy!

These people are also against same-sex marriage.

Their hateful agenda doesn’t end with women, even when women are their main point of interest. No, their focus is also on same-sex marriages. These politicians like to think of themselves as righteous and God-fearing people. They are quick to mention the sanctity of marriage – even when some of them have been married several times (dragging that sanctity in the mud), even when some have been caught with prostitutes or some have even had a mistresses for years; it doesn’t matter because these politicians always find a way to excuse their behavior, by falsely apologizing with a well rehearsed speech then in an amazing act of general amnesia, they will at unison, forget the sins of their counterparts and rapidly transpose those “sins” onto a Democrat who they will viciously and inexorably try to destroy.

They compare same-sex marriage to incest and bestiality, they call it an abomination and they are keen to read passages from the Bible to validate their opinion. Leviticus is their favorite.

22 Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination. Lev. 20.13

The Religious Right is crazy about that verse; they bring it up every time someone is debating same-sex marriage. As it’s common among these people, they pick and choose what remains unchangeable in the Old Testament and what has changed thanks to Jesus.

They completely ignore the following verses:

11 Ye shall not steal, Ex. 20.15 · Deut. 5.19 neither deal falsely, Ex. 20.16 · Deut. 5.20 neither lie one to another. I don’t think I need to dwell on this, we all know politicians break this law. 

13 Thou shalt not defraud thy neighbor, neither rob him: the wages of him that is hired shall not abide with thee all night until the morning. Deut. 24.14, 15.  Should I mention that Republicans are against increasing the minimum wage? 

15 Ye shall do no unrighteousness in judgment; thou shalt not respect the person of the poor, nor honor the person of the mighty: but in righteousness shalt thou judge thy neighbor. Ex. 23.6-8 · Deut. 16.19.  They only obey the part about not respecting the poor, but they waste no time in revering the wealthy!

33 And if a stranger sojourn with thee in your land, ye shall not vex him. Most of them are against Immigration Reform and the Dreamers Act, and many of them simply hate undocumented immigrants.   

34 But the stranger that dwelleth with you shall be unto you as one born among you, and thou shalt love him as thyself; for ye were strangers in the land of Egypt: Ex. 22.21 · Deut. 24.17, 18 ; 27.19 I am the LORD your God. Should I remind anyone about the electric fence?

No, none of the other commands found in Leviticus are to be observed, the first thing they’ll tell you is that Jesus came to change all that… all, except Leviticus 18:22. It is ironic that Jesus never said a single word about homosexuality, but we must believe that Jesus was a hater, just like they are. These people adore a God made to their image, completely ignoring that is supposed to be the other way around.
