Did you pray like the dickens yesterday, on the National Day of Prayer that Barack Obama hates so much? Yeah, we forgot too. But they say certain corners of Hell have been successfully gentrified in recent decades, so there’s always that. Anyway, there’s another prayer day, maybe, on May 23, and here’s the official Catalogue of Sins (PDF) that Jesus wrote on his conservative Acer PC, via the Family Research Council. (“Lifting someone’s luggage” is missing! Phew, now that joke’s out of the way.) Let’s explore the State & National Sins category, cuz it’s our beat, right?

Citizens –

Abandonment of God and His Word
as the foundation for civil order

Apathy & neglect – failure to vote, serve,
& support God-fearing men & women in

Passive & active support for evil leaders

Neglect of stewardship of liberty & Godly

Willful ignorance & neglect of
community, state & national affairs

Silent indifference to the imposition of
evil laws & public policy

Greedily seek entitlements & largess of big
government despite cost to children

Leaders –

Judicial, legislative & executive actions
affirming, fostering, promoting &
exporting: abortion, infanticide,
homosexuality & atheistic education

Treasonous barter of American liberty to
international interests

Deceitfully leading America into New
World Order

Using international influence to promote
immorality & abortion

Deliberate destruction of America’s
military defense

Interference and usurpation of parental rights
& responsibilities

Violation of the Church & religious civil

Usurpation of parents’ authority by
indoctrinating children into sexual
promiscuity, pantheism (worship of the
environment), polytheism
(multiculturalism), atheistic humanism,
liberal politics, socialism & statism under
the guise of public “education” while
failing to teach fundamental academics or
simple truths of right & wrong

Thievery via confiscation of private property
under veil of “environmental protection”

Thievery of family wealth via confiscatory
estate and inheritance taxes

Thievery via confiscatory levels of income
tax & use of tax dollars for evil

Thievery from future generations through
wicked borrowing, deficit spending &
amassing unconscionable public debt

Thievery from all Americans via inflation

Oppression via suffocating overregulation

Violation of the national covenant with the
people: the Declaration and Constitution

Tyranny via unjustified surveillance, search &

Persecution of Christians (restraining, abusing
& firing Christian School teachers,
government workers, etc., who are true to
their faith), passage of laws
discriminating against vocal pro-life
Christians, imposing outrageous fines and
punishments which do not fit the “crimes”
(e.g., abortion clinic bubble laws, hate
crimes laws, etc.)

Imposition of Statism and Socialism in every
arena of American life (schools,
medicine, business, charity, etc.)

Exaltation of State as God, nullifying His laws
& demanding control over areas of life
(including the Church & Family), that
rightly belong to God

That is Psalms, word-for-word.

  • sati demise

    Fuck these fuckin fucks. They are hypocrites on every single bullet point.
    Jeebus weeps every time they speak.

  • JMP

    Just looking at the portions of the list Jim’s excerpted:

    Strange that the FRC, which has shown great fear of gay men, along with Muslims and secularists, says “fear of man” is a sin.
    Since the FRC and others are the ones who have rewritten America’s history, by lying and claiming that the US was founded as a Christian nation, it’s also weird that they would consider that sinful.
    Hypocrisy is a sin; I suppose that doesn’t include hiring rentboys while publicly hating gay people.
    The FRC has ignored the shedding of innocent blood over in Iraq and Afghanistan.
    Neglect of truth in teaching includes the pushing for lies like creationism and the aforementioned “Christian nation” bullshit the FRC has done.
    Covetousness, selfishness, greed and materialism would include bilking their followers.
    For idolatry, see Sarah Palin and George Bush before her.

    And that’s just the beginning! I’m sure the FRC is guilty of a lot of their other listed sins.

  • One Flew Over the Wingnut

    Jesus is apparently a movement Teabagger according to these assholes. Seriously, how can they rail against materialism and greed while in the same church-lady lecture go onto calling “confiscation of wealth” and “over-regulation” and “worship of the environment” (fuckin’ hippies) a sin? These assholes are so racked with cognitive dissonance no wonder they’re all out fucking “rentboys” (eh, I meant having them carry luggage and then preaching the gospels to them ALL NIGHT LONG). This has to be one of the biggest stink-bombs of partisan politics dressed up as religious morality that I’ve ever seen.

    Okay, I can understand why social conservatives are regressive, slavery-worshipping, bigoted and misogynistic cavemen. After all, they are pretty much the same every other religion. But this bullshit also marks their idea of morality coincidently in PERFECT alignment with the GOP line and it is…unforgiveable. These people here are exactly why I’m barely agnostic; I was raised Episcopelean until I noticed people who talk about “justice” and “deep morals” are just douchebag Republicans trying to lead the flock to voting for their party of rich, racist, pasty Randian policies that they call “morale”. Memo to assholes: Ayn Rand FERVENTLY hated religion, possibly more than even Marx did (Marx didn’t accuse the church of lying and stealing from people or call it a blight and its members “lice”, but he’s the evil one). So wrapping her beliefs into the bible and calling them moral is the height of comedy.

    Ya know, they’re lucky. Lucky they have mindless tea baggers who froth at the mouth for them, lucky they have the entire backwards and mostly useless South to shout “amen” when they preach the gospel of supply-side Jesus (delivered through Saint Ronny). They’re lucky they live in a bubble where disagreement is punishable by expulsion (only for now). And they’re also lucky that Rekers found love in some male prostitutes anus…because buttsecks by family research council members is of course, allowed. They’re also lucky they never have to confront anyone with sense and sanity who can explain the “holy free market” is what has caused the real downfall of the American family that they pretend to care so fucking much about. Sorry to go on and on, but these assholes sicken me; I hope the rapture is soon so I need never watch their pasty-assed spokesman on TV again, or hear about Rekers paying some kid to carry his holy ballsack. I’d rather enjoy the peace and quiet of “hell on earth” than listen to these self-righteous closet-cases. Hypocritical, self-obsessed douchebags, also.

    Oh, and Dobson: You’ll be happy to know I wasn’t “Looking away while America’s spiritual and religious history were being rewritten [sic] and the Church [what?] marginalized.” I was right there cheering it on. And believe me, there’s a lot more marginalization to go before you and your organization and your nonexistent god are sufficiently disempowered.

    Found a loophole:

    “indoctrinating children into sexual
    promiscuity, pantheism (worship of the
    environment), polytheism
    (multiculturalism), atheistic humanism,
    liberal politics, socialism & statism under
    the guise of public “education” while
    failing to teach fundamental academics or
    simple truths of right & wrong”

    So as long as you include fundamental academics OR simple truths of right & wrong, you’re okay to teach them to become hedonistic liberal atheists. Today’s lesson: sexual promiscuity, how to do it right.

    Rock on.

    The metadata present in the PDF file is actually a bit interesting as well:

    The original name of the Microsoft Word document was “Catalogue of Sins.doc”. Yes, the author spelled catalog the British way. The author was “kdw”. With some searching, determining the identity of the author could be interesting. Assuming the clock on the computer was set properly, the PDF file was created on 6/4/2009 at 10:16 AM and was not modified since. I guess they were planning ahead for this year. Which was odd as the the PDF producer was “GPL Ghostscript 8.15”. Which means they were using ungodly, commie, open source, free software. Unless they were idiots and actually paid some scam artist for it. The version of Ghostscript available for commercial distribution in software would be displayed as “AFDL Ghostscript X.xx”. The 8.15 version of Ghostscript was released originally in September 2004, and even in 2009 this made version 8.15 eight versions out of date and just a bit long in the tooth.

    Once again, I am terribly confused. Fundies say Jesus called off things like the “don’t eat shrimp” rule and the “don’t wear cotton/polyester blend” rule. However, I’m pretty sure that that his robe did not contain Spandex and that he and the boys didn’t knock back pulled-pork BBQ sandwiches at the Last Supper. And since Judge Roy Moore wants to post the Ten Commandments on all my state’s buildings, I will have to look closely to see if God told Moses: “Thou shall not greedily seek entitlements & largess of big government despite cost to children.”

    And what about the in-field fly rule and “tie goes to the runner?”

    Of course, like good Puritains, their primary focus is on a sin diary.
    However, like good con-men, their primary focus is on adding in their own personal interests to the uncontroversial.
    Like only themselves, FRC anoint and appoint themselves prophets and tell people that they must repent any time they failed to devote all of their money, time, and energy to doing what FRC wants.

    Actually, that last isn’t only like themselves. I believe Jim Jones and David “Koresh” did the same.

  • Geogre

    They have had a real influence, or there may be a Q. source that has an effect on Dobson and the other fundamentalists, but, either way, the jargon and special pleading is the same.

    For example, they argue, privately, “multiculturalism would have us treat all religions as the same; anyone who believes that is not believing in the one God; multiculturalism is polytheism.” It’s bad logic, private logic, and a closed system (i.e. an argument that can only happen if they neither check with reality (the people who practice multiculturalism) nor external beliefs), but it’s closed because the argument is, in fact, that respecting the rights of another group is exactly equal to believing what that group believes, and, since they think they must be “pure,” they can’t listen.

    Now, once they’ve proven, to themselves, by themselves, with the a priori belief that The Enemy is everywhere and that we are in a culture War (look at the radical catholic Donohue do exactly the same), they can lay it down — from private reason — as divine law. They will, of course, go off to find Bible verses as “proof text,” but they begin and end with the personal, private reasoning.

  • mudslingersRignorant

    I am no longer surprised at how little it takes for some to accept nearly anything as truth, no matter how nonsensical it sounds, or how little it is actually based in reality, simply because it fits their own preconceived notions. When ‘the Catalogue of Sins’ was first passed on to me I began to do a little research to find the source, which pointed directly to…..The Wonkette. Every other instance of this ‘free download’ (and there were many) happened to be another liberal blog that mindlessly accepted The Wonkette’s version as gospel truth. Searches on FRC’s website were futile, so I called them, only to be told that they had never heard of this ‘publication’.

    There is so much vitriole on this site that truth appears to be an unnecessary distraction to your real purpose of bashing others…

  • mudslingersRignorant

    Offering my own mea culpa: It has been pointed out to me that this is a list that an affiliate group (Call2Fall)actually published for the specific purposes of their project: calling on churches to pray for our nation on July 4th 2010. This ‘catalogue’ was put together for the sole purpose of helping churches to pray in the context of this project, and therefore contains the narrow focus (as published on Wonkette) on specific issues facing our nation as this group sees it. Wonkette’s truncated publication left the impression that FRC highlights certain political stances as more sinful than others and that is unfortunate. I do apologize myself for further muddying the waters of clarity by passing on misinformation myself and thereby maligning Wonkette. I did research this first by doing a web search, and then searching FRC’s site for ‘Catalogue of Sins’ (to no avail), and I finally called FRC, but the person I spoke to was not aware of any ‘Catalogue of Sins’. I simply went by that statement as fact, when in reality, the person was incorrect. I apologize.

  • cneajna

    You don’t really think an organization like the FRC is going to freely admit they have such a doctrine, do you? I checked their website myself. It used to be there, but they removed it. Gee.. now.. I wonder why??? I have never liked or trusted James Dobson and his ilk. And thankfully I don’t have to justify why… they show themselves for what they are on a fairly regular basis. Have to say the Rentboy story was hilarious though. :)
