Jimmy Carter A Truly Evil Man
WND ^ | 4/3/2012 | Joseph Farah

Posted on 04/05/2012 2:03:16 PM PDT by GiovannaNicoletta

What happens when an evil man is interviewed by a know-nothing interviewer from a corrupt and decadent faux news agency?

----

Asked about homosexuality and the Bible, Carter had this to say: “Homosexuality was well-known in the ancient world, well before Christ was born, and Jesus never said a word about homosexuality. In all of his teachings about multiple things – he never said that gay people should be condemned. I personally think it is very fine for gay people to be married in civil ceremonies.”

Wait a minute! Isn’t Jesus God? And didn’t God inspire the Bible? Just because Jesus isn’t quoted in red letters in the Bible discussing homosexuality, does that mean He never addressed it? Doesn’t it suggest, on the contrary, that Jesus didn’t dispute the law of the Bible? In fact, wouldn’t His atoning sacrifice on the cross be rendered ineffective if He didn’t uphold the law in its entirety? Does Jimmy Carter believe there is disagreement within the Trinity on homosexuality?

Carter for years has played the game that every left wing agenda item is actually a tradional Religious/ American value.

Not to defend Mr. Peanut, or anything. But he is not evil.

Stupid, yes. And suffering from advanced stages of dementia. And he has always been offensive and - well just a dumb hick.

But evil?

Nahhhh. Save that term for LBJ and Obama. Now THEY are (were) evil.

No, I think she had it right. Carter calls himself a Christian and deliberately misrepresents the word of God in the interest of political correctness. He is doing nothing less than calling God a liar.

He IS evil.

He was the first ex-POTUS to criticize the USA from beyond waters’ edge (and before he had dementia — at lest clinical dementia).

When carter stepped out of Habitat For Humanity and back into politics, he became evil. Very evil.

Pardon me for butting in your group, but isn’t the term “dogs” as in “Dogs have surrounded me; a band of evil men has encircled me, they have pierced my hands and my feet.” from Psalm 22, a reference to sodomites?

This is something I ran across years ago, and wonder if you or your group had ever seen the word interpreted as such.

If you believe that Carter is simply naive or suffering from dementia, you probably don't know enough about him. Check out “The Real Jimmy Carter: How Our Worst Ex-President Undermines American Foreign Policy, Coddles Dictators and Created the Party of Clinton and Kerry” written by Steven Hayward in 2004.

Is he more evil than Obama? I don't believe so. Obama gets the prize for that. But is Carter evil? Absolutely! His Sunday School veneer is simply veneer to mask what is inside.

Jesus spoke about fig trees shriveling up and giving no fruits and plenty of other coded parabollas because homosexuals were persecuting open speech, and because Jesus wanted to only talk to those willing to hear, so as to keep the like of guilt ridden fools like Carter away.

It’s how it rolls, too bad, so sad.

I had always thought “dogs” referred to Gentiles. (Mt. 15:26-27; 20:19; Acts 4:27). So the “Dogs” in Psalm 22 would be a reference to the Gentiles who compassed Christ to crucify Him. Romans.

You can’t see me, but I’m giving Carter the same hate stare Laura Bush did when the LameAss Commie attacked her husband at the funeral of MLK’s wife.

Oh, and they’re not “gay”. They are homosexuals, and less than 2% of the population.

“Doesn’t this argument mean ALL of the Old Testament laws must be followed by Christians?

No Bacon?”

Dietary laws were specifically changed in the New Testament. Peter is ordered three times to rise, kill and eat “unclean” animals. God tells him that He has made them clean.

Also temple worship was specifically changed, we worship differently now as we no longer have to sacrifice. Christ is our sacrifice. This is also specifically lined out.

The moral laws continue, again, they are repeated and referenced and upheld.

There really is no confusion if you just read it through. God is not the author of chaos; He makes His will clear enough.

In Israel, at the time Jesus walked, homosexuality was not a big issue, so it isn’t surprising that Jesus didn’t directly address it. Besides, it is covered elsewhere in the old and new testaments, and if someone gets their values from scripture and Christianity, rather than make them up as events and desires dictate, it is impossible to not conclude that homosexuality is a sin, as are most divorces and multiple marriages, adultery, and premarital fornicating. To those we can add lusting in our hearts, something Jimmy is familiar with, and being envious of our neighbors, something most liberals are guilty of. We all have something to overcome in our Christian walks, and no one is doing homosexuals a favor by pretending they are okay with God when they aren’t. If there is anything this world needs in mega doses right now, it is truth.

“A Truly Evil Man”

Aw, ya think?

The Department of Energy, the Department of Education, Oil Crisis with the Arabs, Hostage Crisis with the Iranians, Camp David accords that effectively handcuffed Israel, the Panama Canal treaty, Three Mile Island nuclear meltdown, Stagflation, the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan, and Billy Carter, the liaison with Khadaffi and Libya.

About his only positive legacy was Habitat for Humanity.

"It’s how it rolls, too bad, so sad?"

Juvenile taunts doesn't an accurate scriptural interpretation make.

Your hatred of homosexuals has blinded you to a profound teaching. Jesus was talking about a nation that turns away from God - and specifically, a nation based on God that turns away from God.

Read Why Did Jesus Curse the Fig Tree? for a better understanding of what this was about.

And learn to love as Jesus loved - hate the sin, but love the sinner - before you go spreading your own failings to others.

IF, that is, you really are a Christian. Because your screen name is more like a liberal shill's idea of a Christian screen name, than something any actual Christian would think of using.

He deliberately and knowingly denies the word of God, which makes him evil.

Remember who the first person was to deny that God said what he said.

Jimmy Carter knows exactly what he is doing. He has chosen the wrong side, and the eternal destiny that goes hand in hand with that choice.

I have to disagree. Back when he was President, I thought he was just stupid. But over the years it became more and more evident that he was evil. He never saw a Communist or a Muslim terrorist that he didn't want to hug.

Go get a freaging grip before you call me a “hater”, because your attacks portray your brains and how you view the world. Hypocrites.

I have always loathed Carter as a phony. That is why I cast my first vote for Gerald Ford (I was too young to vote for Reagan in the primaries). Lots of people, including Howie Carr, made the mistake of voting for Jimmuh, but not me.

Of course, as I had not made the mistake of voting for one Carter, it is obvious that I would not vote for the Jimmy Carter on steroids, the Messiah.

Also, Carter says he is a nuclear physicist. He worked in the boiler room of a nuclear submarine, but that doesn't make him a nuclear physicist -- an engineer maybe. Impressive, but no nuclear physicist.

Herman Cain is the real rocket scientist!

Maha Rushie explained that. While I thought Jimmuh was always evil, Rush explained that it was at Nixon's funeral that the peanut farmer went really crazy. He heard people who despised Nixon speak very admiringly of the man and probably thought to himself that these same people would not speak so admiringly of him when he would be gone. Rush thought he could see the enormous rage building in Carter's face.

If you read the rest of the article at WND, Joseph Farah's rebuttal is very thorough, and well worth your time.

Jimmy Carter, in his day, was a "Leverager".
(see The ropes to skip & the ropes to know: The inner life of an organization, 1987 edition He was very good at selling himself into a position above his capabilities, and hoping to learn how to do that job before he got fired.
I believe he was an honest man that DID NOT KNOW WHAT HE WAS DOING!

Jimmy Carter was not very good.
But ... back to the article.
Read on:
Now I'd like to add to that to following things.
Haven't they read this?
Don't they know that Jesus Christ is also the LORD of the Old Testament, too?

So ... Remember this?
Homosexuals ... " God gave them over to a reprobate mind "... so there was a reason WHY God did this.
But homosexuals cannot abide the truth.

That is a very good post. For some reason the sin of homosexuality has a propensity to override, in some cases, the ‘hate the sin but love the sinner’ mentality. When it does, gentleness, which is a fruit of the Spirit, goes out the window.

The only time Jesus was truly harsh was w the Pharisees. And what were the Pharisees good at? Judging others. Yet when Jesus met regular sinners, such as the Woman at the Well, He was remarkably gentle—and look at the results

Something to think about.

Great way to shut people up. Do you believe in the Trinity? That will start them getting nervous. I love it. They will either have to deny that - which is a far bigger deal than they think - or they will eventually lose the argument.

Jimmy Carter is simply a man without the wisdom of the Holy Spirit.

Try searching for “Jimmy Carter” + “Bible” + “Pope John Paul II” - if you want to have your mind blown by Carter’s idiocy.

About 10 days ago Jimmy release a new book about the bible which was apparently some of his interpretations of the bible. At the time there was an article about some of his memoirs written when he was in the White House. He wrote about his meeting with Pope John Paul II and how he (Jimmy) was angry with Pope JPII because they had discussed the Marxist liberation politics of Central America, and also Carter told Pope JPII that the church should definitely ordain women priests. It happened the Pope John Paul II did not agree with Carter and he told him so. Carter said the “Pope John Paul II reminded him of the Ayatolla Khomeini!!! Yup, that’s the logic in Jimmy Carter.

What is truly amazing in this article is that Carter is so stupid that even today in hindsight, Carter still thinks he knew better than John Paul II about liberation theology and women priests. What a doofus.

Agreed. Homosexuality was so forbidden for Jewish society in that time that it would’ve been unimaginable that folks would ever advocate marriage being defined in a way that did not consist of a man and at least one woman. In fact by affirming marriage as one-man and one-woman(Matthew 19:4-6), Jesus greatly emancipated womankind by emphasizing how necessary they are to the human race. Advocating all-male or femaleless “marriage” would not have been liberating for females in that time period.

There have been many terms used to describe Jimmy Carter. I would use the term incompetently malicious. He has some elements of wanting to do good in him, but overall he is nowhere near Christian, nor a good man. He holds grudges.

Carter got my parents’ vote because of his veneer of social conservatism and purported Christianity. They never forgave themselves.

I was old enough to vote in the election for his second term, and DIDN’T vote for this evil man. I voted for Anderson in my rebellious, “liberal” years of young-skull-full-of-mush. But I’m glad Reagan won.
