Conservative Heresy 101: The Conservative Bible Project

Padre Steve has raised a serious, important concern. This concern should be on the minds of all Christians who love and believe the Bible. The bible is quite clear about removing and changing what is within it. The attempt at altering the very meaning and content of Jesus Christ’s words and message is a scandal. It’s disturbing, but it clearly shows that wolves in sheep’s clothing hide among God’s people and are not above altering what God said should not be altered. Thanks for sharing this with us, Padre.

Well it is the New Year and there is no way better to celebrate it than by excoriating the methods of a group of Conservatives who are busily re-writing the Bible according to “Conservative principles.”

These people are the very same people who call Pope Francis a Marxist and condemn anyone who sees the strong message of social justice that is found throughout the Bible, particularly in the Old Testament prophets and the words of Jesus in the Gospels. For these people the issue is not what the Bible says, but how they can get it to line up with their political and economic ideological goals. The Conservative Bible Project  is so bad that even wing nuts like World Net Daily’s editor in chief Joseph Farah said: “I’ve seen some incredibly stupid and misguided initiatives by ‘conservatives’ in my day, but this one takes the cake…there is nothing…

  1. Washington Post conservative columnist Kathleen Parker has a column out today begging for a return to conservative traditionalism. She makes two major points.

    1) America needs to return to being a culture of prim and proper modesty with the reintroduction of a powerful force of “societal shame.”

    2) The accumulation and growing by leaps and bounds of wealth in the top 1 percent of Americans—wealth so great that Caesar, Alexander the Great, and Midas would look on in it in despair (my words)—is a good thing. Then she goes on to claim that any concern about the ever-growing disparity between that 1 percent and the people on the lower rungs of the ladder is committing the sin of ENVY, with the allusion that the poor simply want to steal what rich people have and make it their own. Her answer to solving the problem is finding a way to make the incredibly rich even more incredibly rich so they can create new jobs for the poor and get a few extra paycheck pennies into the pockets of ordinary people (basically the old Hoovernomics/Reaganomics trickle down theory that never really worked). Reagan did bring us out of the late 1970s recession, but he did it by borrowing enormous amounts of money and pumping it into the economy, essentially the same policy Obama has been pursuing. Iguess the question I would ask Kathleen is: “Okay. The Top 1 % is incredibly rich right now and getting rich every day, so where are all those millions of new jobs they are creating?” Like Duh!!!!!

  2. Wow! I had to use eye wash after reading such tripe! And yet these dear people want to turn their bible into a theocracy? The only thing we can do is “preach the Word” and not suffer fools!
