First Openly Gay Congressman Barney Frank Describes Himself as 'Pot Smoking Atheist'
christianpost.com ^ | 08/06/2013 | Katherine Weber

Posted on 08/06/2013 9:11:20 PM PDT by massmike

Former Massachusetts Congressman Barney Frank, the nation's first openly gay member of Congress and liberal darling, implied in a recent interview that he is also a "pot-smoking atheist."

Frank, a Democrat who served as a member of the U.S. House of Representatives from Massachusetts from 1981 to 2013, made his comments last Friday while serving as a guest on a talk show hosted by Bill Maher, a stand-up comedian known for his atheist, liberal-slanted comedy routine.

Maher then went on to say that Frank was lucky to have worked in a "safe district" which didn't receive the kind of media attention that other congressional districts may have. Frank represented Massachusetts's fourth congressional district, which is comprised of mostly southern Massachusetts.

"You were not one of those Congress-people who have to worry about every little thing," the comedian said. "You could come on this show, and sit next to a pot smoking atheist, and it wouldn't bother you."

Frank then responded: "Which pot-smoking atheist were you talking about?" pointing to himself and implying that both he and Maher are "pot smoking atheists." Frank's response received applause and laughter from the audience, and the former congressman went on to speak about his opinion regarding using the bible for oaths when swearing into a government office.

Or taffy puller, chocolate dipper and then there all of the vegetable descriptive he left out. How about Anti American, Anti family, there are so many ways to describe himself and he limits it so.

"embarrass me"

Don't feel so alone. My state of Wisconsin recently elected the first openly lesbian senator, Tammy Baldwin. And yes, she's a typical goofy, leftist nut. And I predict she'll be the first open homosexual to run for president.

He is not the problem, just another freak in the show. The problem is the kind of people who would vote for him to represent them in Congress. Dumb, dumb, people...a result of our excellent, Bill Ayres inspired education system.

He “didn’t know” a gay prostitution ring was being run out of his apartment or that Fannie Mae was going under (thanks to the boy toy sex bribe he was given to obstruct Bush’s efforts to get to the bottom of the corruption).

He belongs in prison for his crimes and deserves to be listed with “infamous” next to his name in the nation’s history books.

The reprobate BF will enjoy smoking for all eternity in the lake of fire.

“Then death and hell were thrown into the lake of fire. This is the second death, the lake of fire.

“And if anyone’s name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire.

“...for the cowardly and unbelieving and abominable and murders and immoral persons and sorcerers and idolaters and all liars will have their part in the lake that burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.

“And the SMOKE of their torment goes up forever and ever; they have no rest day and night those who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of the beast.”

(Rev 20:14,15; 21:8; 14:11)

BF may claim to be an atheist, but God does not give such a position a pass.

“He that is not with me, is against me” (Matthew 12:30a). “He that believes on the Son has everlasting life. He that believes not shall not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him.” (John 3:36)

As reprehensible as BF is (and given over by God) he will be joined in the lake of fire by all the unbelieving. So, admit your sin and choose the free gift of God through faith in the finished work of Jesus Christ and receive eternal life.
