Wisconsin Republican Tells Non-Christians To Convert Or Be Destroyed (Video)

Wisconsin GOP State Representative Scott Allen thought it would be a great idea to send out a video Christmas message to his constituents. Nothing wrong with that, but Allen also quoted a Bible verse which threatens non-Christians with destruction if they don’t convert.

How’s that for peace on earth and goodwill toward men?

Allen began his festive message with this introduction:

“For those who may watch this who are not Christians, I invite you to consider the hope offered by the Prince of Peace.”

The moved on to what might sound to some like a direct threat:

“My friends, we attain peace through love. This season, think of how you can love the people in your life: Family, friends, neighbors, just a little bit more. Encourage them. Fellowship with them. Our world needs more love and more peace. We do our part to make this world a more peaceful place by being more loving in our relationships. We gain strength through love. Hebrews 10 concludes: ‘We are not of those who shrink back and are destroyed, but of those who believe and are saved.’”

The Freedom From Religion Foundation immediately took issue with Allen’s message, firing off a letter to  Wisconsin Assembly Speaker Robin Vos in which they asked if any state money was used to make the video. As they rightly noted, such a use of state funds would be a direct violation of the Constitution:

“While Allen is free to promote his personal religious beliefs on his own time, it is inappropriate to do so when he is afforded a special platform due to his elected position. Using state resources to promote one particular religion, and suggesting that people should convert or even consider converting to that religion, is unconstitutional.”

If some Christians wonder why those of other faiths tend to believe that they are pushy or even downright militant when it comes to forcing their religion on others, they only need take a good look at the video below.

Christian Website Says ‘There Is No Such Thing As Marital Rape’ And Women Must Submit

Ever heard of the Biblical Gender Roles website? Me either. At least not until today, and now that I know it exists, I fear for women across this country because it asserts that married Christian women must submit to their spouse, no matter if they want to or not.

Yes, when I read that, I admit I had to go back and read it again. And as I read on, I found this nugget of non-equality that the website posted:

“(A woman’s) body does belong to her husband.”

But wait, it only gets more ridiculous when the writer on the blog site asks a hypothetical question:

“Is a husband selfish for having sex with his wife when she is not the mood?”

To which he responds:

“Feminists and even some women who would not consider themselves feminists believe it is selfish for a man to have sex with his wife, knowing she is not in the mood, In fact some claim if a man has sex with his wife when she is not the mood this is rape… Here we will try to answer this very important question, from a Biblical perspective.”

Must we? OK, if you insist. It is your web site, after all.

This “expert” on all things marital and Biblical then declares:

“But I will say this, despite American laws to the contrary, Biblically speaking, there is no such thing as ‘marital rape.’ In the Scriptures, the only way rape occurs is if a man forces himself on a woman who is not his property (not his wife, or concubine). A man’s wives, his concubines (slave wives taken as captives of war or bought) could be made to have sex with him, no questions asked.”

This genius even admits that such a view is abhorrent in the society we live in, but:

“I realize this entire scenario is appalling to our modern western notions, but I choose to not challenge God’s wisdom in the laws he gave. If you want to argue with God about this at the judgement, be my guest.”

I don’t need to argue with God, because I’m quite certain He would in no way condone rape, even if it took place in a marriage, you insensitive cretin!

As a Christian myself, I find this man’s views to be the equivalent of how ISIS treats women: like objects that are owned or possessed. And I can assure you that if and when my daughter marries in the years ahead, should her husband think he has a right to demand that she have sex with him, I will quickly set him straight on that notion, and I can promise I won’t be kind about it.
