Quote# 118141

Just before his 83rd birthday, Westboro Baptist Church will, Lord willing, picket Willie Nelson, bearing the fit of the only kind and sober words he will receive: By any measure, you will shortly quit this earth. Your "brother, friend" Merle Haggard was supposed to join you at this concert, and the Lord required his soul recently. By all outward indicators, Merle Haggard landed in hell, and while you have the breath of life today you should repent and warn others to do the same.

The kind of nonsense you've sold to your perverse generation will not be accepted. For example, this bilge you spewed in your 2015 autobiography ("It's a Long Story") will have no path to escape your lips in that grave hour: "I couldn't betray marijuana any more than I could betray a family member [tell that to your 4 wives...especially the one who quit you when she found you carrying around the nice fresh hospital bill for the just-then birth of one of your children to another woman] or a lifelong friend. That's because marijuana has never betrayed me." God's requirements for you at this stage of life are summarized at Titus 2:2 - "That the aged men be sober, grave, temperate, sound in faith, in charity, in patience." You are bound by that standard.

You've busily ensured that your example is the exact opposite of that - right down to this day, continuing to promote illegal drug use, serial adultery and wink-at-fornication. It is time for you to prepare to meet the King of Eternity, that Almighty God who framed you and will require an accounting how you used your time, resources and extensive influence (all of which He loaned you for use in service to Him).

"GOD LOVES GRATEFUL, HUMBLE OBEDIENCE!"

So, the Westboro idiots practice "islam" (which means obedience in Arabic).

I, for one, prefer the companionship of the Aesir to the grovelling of the christians in from of their god.

The 26th June SCOTUS decision. 'Gramps' is extinct.

Hurts being impotent, doesn't it?

"GOD LOVES GRATEFUL, HUMBLE OBEDIENCE!"

Lord willing, all of Willie's fans attending the concert will laugh at the pickets or otherwise ignore them.

Apparently there aren't enough military funerals for WBC to picket, so they're looking around for anything that will get them a little publicity.

The tyrant desires obedience for its own sake. The psychopath gleefuly imbues a machine cog with sentience. The beast feeds upon the suffering of all its victims. This is your god, your beloved trinity. This is why I hate you and your kind, it is because you serve this, willingly. I don`t care for the actual existence of this moloch as much as I care how one could swoop so low as to in all fact worship it, at the expence of their own kind and species no less! A traitors to your people I`ve got nothing but cold hatred for you.

Doubting Thomas

By any measure, you will shortly quit this earth.

That sounds like a thinly-veiled death threat.

4/14/2016 5:47:15 AM



So, every time people die, it's because God hates them. So, he hated Fred Phelps, I guess?

Ya, I'm sure Willie really gives a shit.

why don't you trash come on up here, try to picket The Boss for canceling a show in the wonderful, progressive state of NC, in protest of their criminally idiotic new bathroom law? I'd like nothing more than to witness some WBC scum up here! They would be destroyed within minutes.

@ Skidie: Nicely said, but you hurt yourself by hating the mentally deranged.

@ Prager: My sentiments exactly, and I could not have said it so well.

The WBC makes me want to go into the septic tank pumping business. Then, I'd have a truckload of human waste to back flush if I ever encountered them protesting on the side of the road.



Except, the "protesters" would be white, and the stream wouldn't be.

About God

El
by Mark Raines

Sources:
1. Qadash Kinahnu, A Canaanite-Phoenician Temple [downloaded from this URL in 2000 http://www.geocities.com/SoHo/Lofts/2938/majdei.html ]

"Jews, Christians, and Muslims usually lead adherents to believe that El simply translates to God, and is just one of the titles of the God they worship. They are right - to a point. El is simply a title, and it is one of the titles of the father god. But it is not only Jews, Christians, and Muslims who have worshiped Him. In fact, before Judaism ever existed (let alone Christianity or Islam), El was worshiped as the chief of the Canaanite pantheon. El has many intriguing titles such as Father of Humanity, the Creator of Creatures, and the King, the Father of Time. He is, without doubt, the god of the desert religions, since Abraham specifically called his god by this title: El Elyon. From the Bible, El also receives these titles: Eternal Father, El the Eternal One, and Ancient of Days.

But who is He? He is an ancient sky God, depicted as an old bearded man sitting upon His throne on the mountain between the two rivers which are the source of the world's oceans. As children, many of us pictured God as a bearded old man. You may never have heard the Ugaritic myths of El, but through genetic memory the truth of his elderliness rang out to you. However, this certainly does not mean that El is a powerless God. He is the undisputed leader of the pantheon, more powerful even than the great Ba'al (his son who died and was resurrected by El's daughter Anat). El is seen as unapproachable on His mountain, and the ancient Canaanite religion believed that a mediatrix, a go-between, was needed to send prayers to El.

This is true of the God of the desert religions as well. In Catholicism there is a tradition that Mary is the Mediatrix, who takes prayers before Yeshua and El. This continues an ancient tradition, in which Asherah (Lady of the Sea, who shares many similarities with Mary) takes petitions to El. Within all of Christianity, Yeshua himself is seen as the Mediatrix. Within Judaism, prayers are taken to El via the angels. But, according to the most ancient myths, He cannot hear them directly. This goes back to the ancient Canaanite myths, whether we knew it or not.

And let us not forget that our God, the God of the desert religions, is like this El in yet another significant way - He is constantly being spoken to on mountains and high places. Where did Moses commune with God? Mount Sinai. Where was the Temple built? Mount Moriah. Where did Yeshua give the beatitudes and pray frequently to His Father? Mount Olivet. What was seen as one of the most sacred places in Jerusalem? Mount Tsion. El, our God and their God, is a God of High Places! Perhaps that is why Melchizedek and Abraham gave him the title El Elyon, or God Most High.

But El has evolved over the years, or at least our vision of Him has evolved. He was originally seen as a distant God, always in need of a go-between to send prayers to Him. This tradition carried over into Judaism and Christianity to a lesser degree, but now it is almost gone. He was also not the only God, but the King of many Gods. This, too, carried over into Judaism until the time of the patriarchal prophets. Some of the prophets were allegedly able to defeat the prophets of Ba'al, but this is something any Canaanite priest could have predicted, and does not mean that Ba'al and the other Gods did not exist. El was the King of the Gods, more powerful even than Ba'al, so naturally His prophets would defeat Ba'al's. Indeed, Moses did not say that El commanded the Jews not to have any other Gods at all - the original translation says that there should be no other Gods before Him, implying that there were other Gods and that they could be worshiped as long as they were not worshiped more or as greater than El Himself. Remember that the apostates at Mount Sinai abandoned El completely for the golden calf - they were not worshiping El alongside the idol, but were worshiping the idol alone".

But, the reader may be wondering, what about Yahweh? Isn't he God the Father? No, "He" isn't, though that is a common misconception. Yahweh is the common mispronunciation of the Ineffable Name given to Moses, YHVH. YHVH is not the Father God, but represents the whole Godhead. El is but one aspect of that Godhead, the chief aspect, the Y. Sometimes he is called Yah, from the YH (first two letters of the tetragrammaton), but that's a rare name for him, hard to find although many mystical Jews today worship him as Yah.

El's Bride, or Consort, Asherah can be seen as the early form of the Goddess, the first H. His Foster-Son, Ba'al, can be seen as the early form of the Son God, the V, who later incarnated as Yeshua. [Again, remember that Ba'al was not necessarily a "fake" or "bad" because the prophets of El beat Ba'al's prophets - they had to beat Ba'al's prophets, because El was the King of the pantheon]. Finally, Ba'al's Sister-Consort, Anat, can be seen as the early form of the Daughter Goddess, the second H. Many similarities exist between the old Canaanite pantheon and the Judeo-Christian pantheon, and fragments of the old worship still exist today. Shekinah is the evolved form of Asherah, just as Matronit contains remnants of Anat. Yeshua does share similarities with Ba'al, including His subordinance to the Father, El, and the fact that he was killed and resurrected in Springtime.

To conclude, El has always been in Judeo-Christianity, but He existed long before that. He was known as El to all three of the patriarchs - Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob - and to the twelve sons of Jacob. He was known to the Jews in captivity in Egypt, and to Moses who came to meet the full Godhead - YHVH - on the mountain. And now, El in His original form is known to us today, as the distant but still caring Chief of our Godhead. And we still speak to Him through our Mediatrix - who was known as Asherah to all six of the Israelite matriarchs - Sarah, Rebekah, Leah, Rachel, Bilhah, and Zilpah - and to Dinah their daughter. Asherah was certainly known to the Jews in captivity in Egypt, and later evolved into Shekinah. Asherah in Her original form is known to us today in yet another incarnation, the form of Mary, our Mediatrix, who takes our prayers before El, King of the Gods.

Abba - The Father God of the New Testament

Abba means Papa or "Daddy," and is a term used by Yeshua in all sermons and prayers to refer to the Father-God. As many Christians and critics have noted, particularly Gnostics, the personality and behavior of Abba Father-God in the Old Testament is vastly different from the kinder, gentler Abba of the New Testament. Unlike Gnostics who teach these are two distinct beings, Esoteric Christians generally believe that his portrayals are different because of the times and because different sets of writers wrote the Old and New Testaments. After all, the times and political conditions when the compassionate and merciful Father in the Gospels was written was very different from the earlier more primitive days when the war-like and jealous Father-God in the Torah/Pentateuch was described and lauded. There are inconsistencies even in the Old Testament, considering many of the Psalms and Isaiah often portrays the Father-God as loving and paternal one minute, then war-like and vengeful the next. This is how people and especially their rulers, the kings, had to be to survive back then. No pacifists could survive!

Our harshest portrayal of Abba comes from the Torah, also known as the Pentateuch, the first five books of the Bible allegedly compiled and/or written by Moses. In the Torah, Abba is often seen as jealous, war-like, sometimes even cruel. To understand this, we remember that the Bible, though inspired by the Divine, was written by people, and those people were fallible in their interpretations and worldviews.

Take a look at the natural disasters attributed to Abba in the OT. The three most famous are the flood of Noah, the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah, and the catastrophic plagues of Egypt. Perhaps Abba really did these things. But let's step back a moment before we accuse Him of "unwarranted genocide." None of these peoples were blameless. According to the Bible, all committed grievous sins and crimes against nature. The people of Noah's time were corrupt and perverse; the people of Sodom and Gomorrah wanted to rape the angels; and the Egyptians were enslaving the Hebrew tribe, refusing to release them even to practice Hebrew religious rites. How quick are we to put down a rabid animal? How many times has a dog been put to sleep for injuring or killing someone? How much more is Abba justified in putting an end to those who live only to hurt his other creatures, many wanting even to destroy God himself.

There is also the possibility that He did not destroy those people at all. The ancients could not understand why bad things happened to large groups of people, especially when it came to natural disasters. When catastrophes struck, they would either get angry and blame a deity or attribute it to the "righteous justice" of a deity. We now know that there was some sort of great flood, that a volcano or other form of natural disaster could have destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah (some bizarre theories on that one, such as spontaneous combustion due to gas/oil saturated soil and an earthquake opening up hot vents in the earth, OR a meteor strike), and that many of the plagues of Egypt were within the realm of natural possibility. Perhaps in an effort to explain why Abba allowed such disasters to happen, Moses decided that He was punishing these nations for their crimes. We had a less respectable example of this with Jerry Falwell after September 11th, when he blamed the attack on anyone who is not a fundamentalist Christian. Unfortunately this vengeful nasty image of Abba is still negatively influencing the world today, in the form of the Muslim god Allah, who is similar to the Old Testament Abba or El, the name Allah being derived from El-ah...

Anyone else feel like they're just phoning it in since Fred died? They're still running the same trip-and-fall scam, but without his weird toxicity powering it, it's like they're just going through the motions.

4/14/2016 10:28:19 AM

Mister Spak

@RedheadedStranger

A lot of scam/cults are like that. The charismatic mental patient who started it dies and nobody has the motivation/charisma to keep it going so it just fades out.

There was a flat earth guy in Europe who had a follower in America in the 1880s who started the American branch. His son was able to keep the cult going, he grew this cult into a whole town, turned it into a contract assembly profit center. He died in the 1950s. There was no crazy charismatic successor so the whole thing sort of faded away after that.

Of course Hellsboro "Baptist" church is not Christian and not in any way fundamentalist as they ignore fundamentals of Christian faith. They embrace the heathen popular cult(ure), allow their women to preach and dress immodestly, and engage in other manners of satanism. The fact that they understand the natural perversion of sodomites doesn't change the fact that they are hellbound.

In the name of the Lord,
Jerry

Surprised they're still trying. Kind of like Jerry who shows only ignorance of what he says. Either that or he's lying. If he's aware how WBC is and their background he'd know they aren't satanists. Though he calls everyone satanists so really he has no clue about the beliefs he derides, the people, nor even satanism itself. He's shown us that his god hasn't done his job, at least in his eyes, in judging us. Or he'd have left after making a single post. It never occurred to him it's possible god already did. Just not the way Jerry wanted it to happen.
