The Covenent of "What's Happening Now"
Oh great, the pervert and the traitor preaching to us about religion. Isn't that rich. These two low lives preaching to anyone about religion would be like Michael Jackson preaching about respecting the innocence and virtue of children.
Word cannot express my anger after a quick perusal of this article. Please tell me this is satire.......
That's all I need is Bubba Clinton telling me how to practice my religion. Carter passed senile up long ago, so I automatically discount anything he has to say.
When you don't stand for much of anything anyway, why bother with a covenant? Oh, that's right, it's to show how much we care.
What incredible cheek !
So now Clinton and Carter want to start their own religion (nobody in their right mind would call what they're preaching "Christianity").
"What's Happening Now"
In other words, make religion a liberal political advocacy tool rather than something to draw one closer to God and to temper behavior to conform more closely to the guidelines established in the Bible. In other words, let's get that whole "It's bad to cheat on your wife and to betray you country" thing out of religion and make it more about getting lots of govt. bennies for people who make it their job to fail in life. Maybe Carter ought to think instead about how religion could help him stop hating Jews and for Bill Clinton how it might stop him from using the bodies of women he has no committment to as his personal playground.
Clintoon's a Laptist.
I thought politics, politicians and/or ex-presidents shouldnt bring religion in to our daily lifes? Isn't that what they've been preaching about Bush. Bunch of hyprocrits. I hate them alot today, those liberals.
RE: "The Covenant of "What's Happening Now"
Exactly! I was brought up to believe that the "new covenant" was the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Do Carter and Clinton propose to unilaterally revise the terms of God's plan for us? Yes they do.
Run for your lives, Baptists.
Clinton and Carter want to address poverty by outsoursing the problem to bureaucrats. The Body of Christ could handle poverty if they were faithful and tried. The welfare state is a mark of shame on the Body of Christ.
No, it isn't a joke, except for the fact that two jokes are promoting it! It isn't really surprising at all. Carter has been a long-time critic of those eeeeevil conservatives who "took over" the Southern Baptist Convention back in the late 70's-early 80's. Recently, he has stepped up his criticism of the SBC and evangelicals. His is a big supporter of the liberal Cooperative Baptist Fellowship, who boasts members like Tony Campolo, who said he would "join hands" with homosexuals and march on the SBC convention a few years ago. Campolo also believed God was basically cowering in a corner wringing His hands over hurricane Katrina, essentially powerless to do anything.
Let me also add that putting Clintoon into ANY religious discussion automatically lowers it to joke status. Carter is bad enough, but having Clintoon promoting something religious won't get it off the ground at all.
This whole "movement" is nothing new either. It is the same old, tired effort by "moderate" (read: LIBERAL) Baptist to regain some relevancy. They lost it years ago and haven't been able to make any strides whatsoever in gaining power back in Baptist circles.
Has Clinton made his customary deletions with regards to what constitutes "sex"?
It would probably require you not to be fellated by an employee at work.
