I don't even remember how I found this abomination.
A Memphis, Tennessee, pastor named Reverend George Books is actively campaigning against Congressman Steve Cohen.
Cohen's shortcomings are described in a letter from Reverend Brooks, which is duplicated in italics below. All of the bold text is his. You can hit this link and read it without my editorializing, but I hope you won't. I want to spoon it out to you in delicious bite-sized morsels. Here's the first chunk of what apparently went out in the mail to a Cohen supporter.
'Anti-Christ Congressman Steve Cohen of Memphis, TN., who, to the detriment of many, legalized gambling in the form of the Tennessee Lottery awhile back. And is also attempting to legalize MARIJUANA FOR THE SICK.
This guy likes unnecessary commas and capital letters even more than I do.
Next are some pictures of Congressman Cohen and openly gay Congressman Barney Frank.
However, he and pal Barney Frank, the gay congressman from Massachusetts, were unsuccessful in passing their last "pot bill". So maybe now they'll go to work on a national "same sex marriage bill", given the recent victory of California gays. For, who knows, these two may one day decide that they want to "tie the knot".
Or, in their tradition, break a glass and have everyone shout "Mazel Tov" ! Please allow the Reverend Brooks to explain:
Also, both are Jewish, and therefore absolutely refuse to believe in Jesus as the Messiah or the Son of God.
They don't merely refuse it, they absolutely refuse it. Whew.
Then Reverend Brooks decides his audience has reached the teachable moment....
Just in case some Memphis Christian voters are not aware that Jews are against Jesus.
So that explains why I never got invited to any Christmas parties at the Rothsteins. I had wondered. But does everyone know this? Or does it only get taught in seminaries at the doctoral level? Should we start spreading the word? (Full Disclosure: I've had three Bud Lites, and I'm having a great time writing this.) Is this Jewish belief system ever discussed at the highest levels of government? ? ? Reverend Brooks wants to know also:
Is John McCain aware that his advisor, pal, and possible VP candidate Joe Lieberman DOES NOT BELIEVE IN JESUS ?
Is John McCain aware? Who knows? Here's some more doctrine:
Jews do not believe in Jesus as the Messiah or the Son of God. And say that people who believe in the Trinity are actually worshipping three Gods.
Can you imagine the Republican V.P. vetting committee sitting down with Lieberman, and digging around about former drug use, speeding tickets, shady contributors, Clarence Thomas moments, and then getting to the big question: "Joe, I'm sorry, but there's one more question we've got to ask. Do you believe that God exists as three persons but is still one being?And that God has but a single divine nature but God's son Jesus assumed human nature, and therefore had two natures, and is really and fully both God and human? I'm sorry, Congressman, but there are preachers in Memphis who are going to want to know...."
Back to the letter:
Now what does McCain have to say about this? And what about the Southern Baptist Convention, John Hagee, Mike Huckabee, Pat Robertson, Rod Parsley....
Just typing that unholy list of groups and names was almost enough to make me give up pork and put on a yarmulke.
....and other Christian leaders? As well as the Jews of America and Israel, who owe America an explanation as to why Christians should be fighting and dying in wars for them? A people that played a role in the death of Jesus Christ, and believe in him not.
I think it was the Italians who played the biggest role in the death of Jesus Christ. But that's a minor quibble.
We now get to Reverend Brooks' final point:
Which actually makes them anti-Christ.
There's some other stuff in the cover letter about Jesus actually being a black man, blah blah blah.
Reverend Brooks is probably black.
Reverend Brooks is probably the product of a 99% Christian, relatively non-diverse, homogeneous environment.
Reverend Brooks has the right to say whatever he wants to say, under the banner of free speech.
But Reverend Brooks is also an anti-Semitic idiot.
