So Christina McGregor over at EnvironMilitant sent me this ‘website’ today called ChristWire. I’ve been reading through the articles for the last couple of hours, and I can firmly say, I feel like I’m going to puke. I debated whether or not to even talk about this website. But now that I’m good and angry, how could I not?
ChristWire, founded by Pastor Jack Gould is a conservative Christian squawk box for the what looks like the dumbest people on the planet. Here’s their mission statement:
Our culture was built on the guiding principles of conservatism and Christianity, from which all morality is born. As such American heritage was meant to be passed on from generation to generation, ensuring that our principles…our values…were never compromised.
But alas, the Left Wing Conspiracy and Liberal Agenda is spreading like a plague not only through our fine society, but through lesser cultures as well. Their sinful antics and attempt to pass off their wanton carnal desires into mainstream culture is destroying society and mankind.
That’s where we come in. Together, in this community, you and your Moral Leaders will combat the evil liberals of this world and once again ensure that a bit of freedom and righteousness once again permeates every country, and let those who don’t abide by our teachings know the eternal pit of hellfire shall be awaiting!
I love how these clowns try to rewrite history. It started when Bush started to break down the barriers between church and state. Here’s a few quotes from the founding fathers on what they thought about Christianity:
“And the day will come when the mystical generation of Jesus, by the supreme being as his father in the womb of a virgin will be classed with the fable of the generation of Minerve in the brain of Jupiter. But may we hope that the dawn of reason and freedom of thought in these United States will do away with this artificial scaffolding, and restore to us the primitive and genuine doctrines of this most venerated reformer of human errors.
-Thomas Jefferson, Letter to John Adams, April 11, 1823
“The Citizens of the United States of America have a right to applaud themselves for having given to mankind examples of an enlarged and liberal policy: a policy worthy of imitation. All possess alike liberty of conscience and immunities of citizenship It is now no more that toleration is spoken of, as if it was by the indulgence of one class of people, that another enjoyed the exercise of their inherent natural rights. For happily the Government of the United States, which gives to bigotry no sanction, to persecution no assistance requires only that they who live under its protection should demean themselves as good citizens, in giving it on all occasions their effectual support.”
– George Washington, letter to the congregation of Touro Synagogue, Newport, Rhode Island, August, 1790, in Anson Phelps Stokes, Church and State in the United States, Vol 1. p. 862
“We should begin by setting conscience free. When all men of all religions … shall enjoy equal liberty, property, and an equal chance for honors and power … we may expect that improvements will be made in the human character and the state of society.”
– John Adams, letter to Dr. Price, April 8, 1785, quoted from Albert Menendez and Edd Doerr, The Great Quotations on Religious Freedom (1991)
“When a religion is good, I conceive it will support itself; and when it does not support itself, and God does not take care to support it so that its professors are obliged to call for help of the civil power, ’tis a sign, I apprehend, of its being a bad one.”
– Benjamin Franklin, letter to Richard Price, October 9, 1780, quoted from Adrienne Koch, ed, The American Enlightenment: The Shaping of the American Experiment and a Free Society, New York: George Braziller, 1965, p. 93.
So I think it’s pretty obvious that the founding fathers did not subscribe to this conservative Christian crap. In fact, they despised it. The whole point of starting a new country was so people could be FREE. That’s a novel concept. Freedom.
You may be asking yourself, “well Jim, then why did refer to God in the founding documents?” Well, I never said that they were Athiests, and neither did they. It’s actually a fact that the majority of the founding fathers were Freemasons. You know, that evil secret society that controls the world? Well, in reality, they aren’t that evil and aren’t so secret. The Freemasons believe in a divine consciousness that binds together everything in the universe, kind of what Carl Jung was talking about but add the teachings from mystic schools over the last 5000 years. The Freemasons were started as a way to combat the backwards dogma the Catholic church was spewing out in the 18th century and helped propel the age of enlightenment. The founding fathers believed so highly in the principles of Freemasonry that Washington D.C. was built as an homage to their group.
So now that we’ve established that ChristWire’s moronic mission statement is completely asinine, let’s talk about how damaging this website is to the average lobotomy victim or kid who’s been home schooled. Just to start, let’s look at some of the headlines for today:
And the list goes on…
These headlines are just ridiculous at best. The scary part is the section of the website where readers ask advice of these dingbats. Here’s a perfectly reasonable question any mother would want to know the answer to:
I first want to say I’m a really big fan of your work on ChristWire and really enjoy your insight into our world’s pressing issues. The question I have for you today is really embarrassing, but I hope that by asking it here I can help other parents out there too.
Some time ago my daughter forgot to take her laundry from the dryer before taking off for volleyball practice, so I folded them up and went to put them up for her in room.
When I reached in her undergarment drawer and I will be frank, my heart dropped as I found one of those electronic phallic objects in it. They are used to ‘M’ and I didn’t know how to handle the situation. I thought to ask my husband, but didn’t want him to have to go through the embarrassment and anguish of such things. I instead asked several of my close girlfriends, some of who are not Christians, and some of them said this was a normal part of a healthy teen’s lifestyle.
The night I decided to talk to my daughter about all this, I heard well…I heard reason to not go in the room. I believe she was using the device then. Is this really alright behavior for a good girl or do I need to confront her? Please help!

Pretty reasonable question for a parent. Do I confront my kid about using a vibrator? The obvious answer is no. Why embarrass your kid when you don’t have to? Just talk to them about having safe sex. No need to bring up the rest. Easy enough, and I didn’t even need to get a PHD in Psychology to figure it out. It’s just common sense. Here’s what Amber from ChristWire had to say:
Dear Concerned in San Diego,
You need to immediately take that sinful device from your daughter. Masturbation is another form of pornography that will infest your daughter’s mind and serve as a gateway to far worse sexual activities.
Studies show that 87% of the women who become prostitutes did so because of unbridled masturbation as a teenager, and over 90% of girls who become pregnant as teenagers did so because of masturbation loosened their morals and made them more apt to engage in unprotected fornication.
Masturbation will make your daughter very comfortable exploring her body, and it will not be long until she begins to envision other people partaking in the deviant behavior with her.
This will of course lead to your daughter seeking out a male companion, or even female. As a teenager, your daughter’s mind is not yet developed enough to handle the pressures and responsibilities of being sexually active. It will lead to great sorrow in her life if you don’t put a stop to it right now.
So first, have a talk with your daughter and pray with her. Pray all that sinful desire of masturbation right out of her heart. Throw the device away, and then enroll her in some abstinence counseling sessions. These will teach your daughter the value and need of respecting her body until marriage. Masturbation is very unnatural and by taking proactive steps to get this bizarre behavior out of your teen’s life, you’ll ensure she has a better future.
Sweet baby Jesus. Imagine having her as your mom? I wouldn’t want to know what she would do if her kid brought a Muslim home as her boyfriend. Oh wait, she writes about that too:
Your parents love you with all their heart and are looking out for your best interest. Many people do not realize this, but the threat of Homegrown Terrorism is very, very high and every neighborhood may have an American jihadist traitor lurking about.
Imagine the sorrow in your parents hearts if this young man is one of the hundreds of millions of Muslims who could potentially be working with homegrown terrorists, and he did something to harm you. Would that not be a cruel fate to place on your parents?
So talk to them more about their views on terrorists in America and ask the young man about it too. If he becomes upset with you asking and gets offended, run! He may be guilty.
God help us all.
At this point, I’m not even sure what else I can say. All I can say is that this website is fake and only complete idiots would believe that this website was the defacto word of the Lord. Unfortunately there’s a lot of people that do think that this website is legit, and with reason. There’s a lot of other crazies that are doing this legitimately and are making a lot of money from spewing this kind of hate. Don’t believe me? I’ve got two words for you: Ann Coulter.
What do you guys think?
