Michael Moore or Southern Baptists: who acts more Christian?

The North Carolina Baptist state convention decided Tuesday to investigate and expel any member church that is gay friendly. Now any two members of a given Southern Baptist church in North Carolina can request inquisitors to determine if their church is tolerant of gays and lesbians. Already investigation has started into seventeen churches associated with the Alliance of Baptists, a national group that welcomes gays.

Also, on Tuesday, the Georgia Baptist Convention finalized its spilt with Mercer University over a gay student group being allowed to form on campus. Earlier in November Southern Baptists in Missouri threatened a boycott unless Wal-Mart cut ties with the National Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce. Around the same time Oklahoma's Southern Baptists passed a resolution calling for businesses and government to provide family benefits only to "traditional families" and not to gay and unmarried couples.

Meanwhile, alleged American hater, Michael Moore, (type Michael Moore hates America at Google and there will be around 875,000 hits) was also at it on Tuesday at the same time the Southern Baptists were. So what evil was Satan's minion up to? After all, Bernard Goldberg ranks Moore at the top of the "100 People Who Are Screwing Up America." Goldberg says that Moore's"popular films and supporters are too hateful of America that he doesn't deserve to be talked about."

Terrorist sympathizer Moore published a subversive, anti-American essay at his site and at Oped News that was entitled: "A Liberal's Pledge to Disheartened Conservatives." Moore says that he has "good news" for conservatives and that he has a pledge to make on behalf of liberals who have taken control of Congress. Moore offers a list of promises that "because we value you as our fellow Americans. You deserve to know what we plan to do with our newfound power . . ."

Pacifist pinko Moore writes to conservatives:

"I promise all of the above to you because this is your country, too. You are every bit as American as we are. We are all in this together. We sink or swim as one. Thank you for your years of service to this country and for giving us the opportunity to see if we can make things a bit better for our 300 million fellow Americans -- and for the rest of the world."

My God, what radical ideology it is, to love your enemies and treat them as you would be treated. Next thing you know seditious Moore will even be praying for his enemies. Just listen to this unpatriotic dribble: "We will always respect you for your conservative beliefs. We will never, ever, call you 'unpatriotic' simply because you disagree with us. In fact, we encourage you to dissent and disagree with us." Heaven forbid, what is this country coming to when liberals are openly preaching subversive values as forgiveness and mercy? Next thing you know Moore will be pushing some far-flung idealism that we are to be perfect in loving everybody as God does by lighting the sunlight and rain fall on all. Radical Moore will even likely promote that we must protect the rights of our enemies as if their rights were our own rights.

The anti establishment Moore also pledges to actively promote the "radical religious beliefs" of Jesus such as "Blessed are the poor" and "Blessed are the peacemakers." Hell, what do you expect from an anticapitalist who has previously said "The problem is the profit motive: for corporations, there's no such thing as 'enough'." With mushy sentiments like that, Moore before long will be spouting nonsense like "You cannot serve God and Mammon."

Of course, it was Moore's bleeding heart liberalism that has motivated him to engage in un-American activities such as doing unto the least of them by seeking the truth and justice. Obviously, he is some type of wild-eyed utopian who thinks we are to do here on earth as it is done in heaven. And Moore trying to shout Mammon's secret from the rooftops and right out in the open in broad daylight, who the hell does he think he is? A prophet? Before long, Moore will even be calling war a sin bigger than homosexuality and unmarried sex.

In all seriousness, which was the more Christlike action on Tuesday, November 14: threatening to expel churches for being friendly to gays, or publishing a proclamation pledging to actively promote Jesus's teachings by protecting the rights of conservatives? Let Jesus give you a hint:

"Not all who sound religious are really godly people. They may refer to me as 'Lord' but still won't get to heaven. For the decisive question is whether they obey my Father in heaven. At the Judgment many will tell me, Lord, Lord, we told others about you and used your name to cast out demons and to do many other great miracles. But I will reply, 'You have never been mine. Go away, for your deeds are evil."

As you cast out, so shall you be cast out.
