That list seems quite the ipod mix. 'Course even though Timmer was one of Paul's faves and Paul fussed over him, it's no wonder some thought him timid---he'd be cautious to a fault to try to stay out of that list!
Been awhile since you dropped one of these.
Allow me to lob one back.
And it's not even from the Book of Jumbo, I'll just wing it.
Using scripture to serve as your tool for what is essentially your personal desire to tear at someone whose views you dislike isn't new. But it is weak. Rather than cloaking yourself in piety and a self-serving version of reverence, just man up and call the upsetting radical gay non-Christian all those same slams as in that passage directly (cue denial).
Though I can see it is probably convenient for appearance to "let" God do the name calling and you just relax and bask in the smugness of your own added closing line.
Did you heart swell with a self-righteous glow?
I can almost see the Church Lady doing her "superior dance."
Your "religion" posts often reek of the odor of pious, unfounded, and often hypocritical judgement. Considering smell shouldn't transmit over the internet, it's impressive, but it's only metaphorical---not miraculous. Your intended application to this guy of many of those traits in that passage you picked does not quantify who he is and what he has done in his life. Fail @ being God's Right Hand.
But why would you need to know that? You're just going to be a good Christian and judge him anyway.
Being well familiar with your posting on religious and other themes, I find your posts often serve as a stark example of how a representative of a faith can be such a negative figure to so many. Maybe the sanctimonious condescension you sometimes view others with for their flaws as you see them is just a reflection of your own insecurities, and of those traits being among the "darker" parts of your own self-image, projected unto another.
I often devote time and energy to supporting the positives of religion. At times like these, you remind me of the many things about it, and the people who wear it in rather ugly fashion so often, that are such an unhealthy part of the package.
