Late Night: Be Afraid, Be Very Afraid!

There’s a lot that’s going on out in the world and while some of it has nothing to do with Halloween it does provide some good fodder for costumes. Other costumes are in bad taste, “too soon” or not. What are you doing/wearing for Halloween?

Now for the very scary: According to a certain Christian sect very popular among elected conservatives, Ted Cruz is the Anointed King who will redistribute wealth. And why if liberals want to do it, distribution of wealth is Evil; but if Ted Cruz does it, it’s totally cool? The answer lies in a sermon delivered by Dominionist preacher Larry Huch at his megachurch August 26, 2012, where Ted Cruz’ father Rafael Cruz also delivered a sermon. Huch preached:

The number 12 means ‘divine government’, that God begins to rule and reign. Not Wall Street, not Washington – God’s people and his kingdom will begin to rule and reign…I know that’s why God got Rafael’s son elected – Ted Cruz, the next Senator. But here’s the exciting thing – and that’s why I know it’s timely for him to teach this, and bring this anointing. The rabbinical teaching is, especially amongst gentiles, who God opens their eyes, that in a few weeks begins that year 2012, and that this will begin what we call the “End Time Transfer of Wealth.

And that when these gentiles begin to receive this blessing, they will never go back financially through the valley again. They will grown and grow and grow. It’s said this way – that God is looking at the church, and everyone in it, and deciding, in the next 3 and 1/2 years, who will be his bankers. And the ones that say, “Here am I, Lord, you can trust me,” we will become so blessed that we will usher in the coming of the Messiah. This message if for you. Would you welcome our good friend Rafael Cruz ? What a tremendous man of God.

The elder Cruz then took the pulpit and said:

The pastor [Huch] referred to Proverbs 13:22, a little while ago, which says that the wealth of the wicked is stored for the righteous. And it is through the kings, anointed to take dominion, that that transfer of wealth is going to occur. God, even though he’s sovereign, even though he’s omnipotent, he doesn’t let it rain out of the sky – he’s going to use people to do it.

The theological implications of this are huge, as are the political and social.  And scarier than any goblin at your doorstep.

Is being afraid what Halloween is about? Idly wondered.

Partially. It is scary for young kids to go up to strangers and ask them for stuff. Especially where I go to give out candy. Our goal IS to scare. Also, it the night when the veil between worlds is the thinnest. Hardcore nutbag Christians are afraid that on the Halloween more kids will fall prey to Satan’s wiles.

Ted is Hispanic but non Cuban Hispanics don’t like him. Tea Baggers are racist they are not likely to vote for him.
But yes he is scary and I suspect another will come who will Steal Ted’s idea and use it for himself that person is Rand Paul.

Ted and his Dad are threatening the bankers support us or else bankers are used to giving orders to Pols not taking them. So I don’t see the bankers backing down pass the popcorn the Fundies just openly declared war on the Corporate wing of the GOP.

To get past a GOP Presidential Primary you must agree with them even if you are not one of them.

Really? When I was that age it was taken for granted, no emotional content.

So the transfer of wealth began in 2012, eh. Where’s mine? I haven’t seen a red cent yet. Fie on these witch doctors!

Sometime in the mid-1980′s I was at the mall for some items, it was during Halloween, and there was a tradition of all the merchants giving out treats to the kids who made the rounds with their parent or someone. I thought: O Lord. The salespeople would also wear costumes. It’s the same mall where Romero shot Dawn Of The Dead, and the same mall I helped build in 1968 working general construction. I bought a package of Bic disposable razors at the drugstore (Thrift Drugs), probably a pack of Big Red, and certainly a 5th Avenue bar (I don’t have to remember, I’m just sure). When I got home and emptied the bag of items, I found an apple someone put in among the razors.

“God is looking at the church, and everyone in it, and deciding, in the next 3 and 1/2 years, who will be his bankers.”

Why does God need money? Dude’s already got some prime real estate.

dominionists are just the latest manifestation of the mandate from certain religions that adherents must convert others, truly the work of a devil, in that those who believe in non-existent supernatural gods are extremely reluctant to modify their beliefs. The unstoppable force of religions vs non-movable beliefs invariably leads to hatred, wars and killing, please refer to history and present day realities. Humanity will never realize its greatness while saddled with these fools, and their ignorant religious fairy tales.
