NEA Vice President: NRA, Second Amendment Supporters "Are Going to Hell"
NRA-ILA ^ | June 28, 2013 | NA

Posted on 07/12/2013 4:41:15 PM PDT by neverdem

Speaking to all 3,000 of the assembled "progressive activists" at this year's Netroots Nation conference, National Education Association vice president Lily Eskelsen Garcia boldly declared a "prophecy" about the eternal destiny of NRA and Second Amendment supporters, and of politicians and lobbyists working to promote gun rights: "I'm not an ordained minister; I'm not a theologian, but these guys are going to hell."

Wow. Going to hell for supporting the Second Amendment? That type of radical thinking might explain the very high incidence of ridiculous cases involving over-zealous school officials misinterpreting and wrongly enforcing "zero-tolerance" rules--and doing so without exercising even the smallest measure of sound judgment, discretion or basic common sense.

According to a Mercury News article, the high-ranking NEA officer went on to say, "We have to make those senators as frightened of us as they are of the gun lobby. Shame on us if we give one inch to the gun lobby. They got where they are because they never give up. ... Now the movement is us; we are the ones we were waiting for."

As we note on a near-weekly basis, all of us agree that we want our children to be safe at school, and that reasonable safety measures should be followed. But, when pressed, gun-control proponents and even President Obama's own administration will admit that the restrictions they are pushing won't make schools and students any safer.

Do they really think that criminals and madmen will now suddenly and willingly comply with "universal" background checks and modern sporting rifle bans, or that a magazine capacity limit would have stopped Adam Lanza? No, they don't. No "educated" person could.

I love the sound of barking moonbats claiming to be mainstream! They're out of the closet again.

supporters of the Second Amendment made it possible for this d-less wonder to make a fool of himself in public

who will defend this clueless wonder, people like him have no aptitude for it

and then it starts all over again, with empty heads trashing those who paid the price

Separation of church and state violation. The union is making religious claims and should no longer be associated with public education!

“I’m not an ordained minister; I’m not a theologian...”

“I’m not a scientist or a mathematician but the ratio between the radius of a circle and its circumference is 2.”

Why would you announce you’re ignorant in a field then make a declaration about it?

I am an amateur theologian and I don’t believe this person knows anything about the afterlife.

“was named by President Obama to serve as a commissioner on the White House Commission on Education Excellence for Hispanics.”

Education Excellence for Hispanics...hmmm...Education Excellence for Hispanics—not CHILDREN, but for Hispanics.

Hey, former “lunch lady”-—aren’t you aware that YOUR party denied having God as part of their platform 3 times at the DNC convention?

I don’t think God listens to those that don’t listen to Him.

Onward Christian soldiers!

gitmo ~:" I didn’t know the NEA was a religious organization." The only time NEA gets religious is when they have something to say to REAL RELIGIOUS organizations ! Other than that ,... they are atheists !

The only way to relate to NEA is to tell them that : #1)they are going to a spritiual gulag in Siberia , #2) they will have to live with Saul Alinsky's rules that they have imposed on others #3) that God loves them despite their intentional ,purposeful ignorance #4) that they are one of the 72 virigins promised to Muslims #5) that they can only eat pork , no veggies #6) they will be used and abused and their sexual organs will be sewn shut, so improvise ! #7) they will remain there until God says they can progress to Hell !

The NEA is the owner of the Democratic Party; they own them lock, stock & barrel. Obama is their paid representative.

Until people realize their perception of the relationship between the teachers’ unions and the Democrats is backwards, they will always be aiming at the wrong targets.

Dear Lily,
Unfortunately for you, if all the gun rights supporters
go to “hell”, who will be around to keep you from being
sent there too?

Think that won’t happen? Maybe you need a history lesson.
Oh you can bleat, “Arrested? Why me? I didn’t do anything.”
all you want, it won’t save you from the clutches of
those you put in power.

We will be laughing in hell and saving you a place.

“I’m not an ordained minister; I’m not a theologian, but these guys are going to hell.”

Liberals are happy to seize any component of reality and press it into support of The Agenda. The instant that what God really wants humanity to do or what God wants humanity to avoid doing (like coveting the wealth of others), the liberal will find some excuse to dismiss it.

God is not mocked by people who are happy to beat others over some aspects of Scripture while spitting on other aspects.
