Rev. Robin Meyers Oklahoma's "Pulpit Pundit"
For the last 12 years, Meyers’ sermons have been broadcast in Oklahoma on Sundays at 9:30 am, KOKC AM 1520. The program has become the most listened to religious broadcast in Oklahoma. (according to their website)
Rev. Meyers is a strong advocate for separation of church and state and believes the conservative Christian right has gotten it all wrong by mixing religion and government.
Of course he has no problem mixing the two and injects his own political views on the illegal war, attacks President Bush and all conservatives directly from the pulpit as well as in the classroom where he is a Professor of Rhetoric. (Yes boys and girls, apparently there is such a thing)
So we have a Bush hater who is for separation of Church and State telling people HOW they should vote from his church pulpit and and also at public funded schools. A man who condemns conservatives for using religion and the church to promote a political agenda by using HIS religion and HIS church to promote HIS political agenda.
Not so much.
Meyers also preaches that the apostle Paul was gay and that God/Jesus would never claim there is only one way to heaven as well as deeply thought out questions such as "what if they gave a war and nobody came?" and "War, ...good God ya'll, ...What is it good for? ...Absolutely nothing". Yes, he really said this stuff.
BTW- Jesus did say: "I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father but by me." (John 14:6)
and perhaps you remember this one- "For God So Loved the World that he gave his only begotten son, so that whosoever believes in HIM shall have eternal life." (John 3:16)
I will answer these other incredibly thought provoking questions for the good Doctor...
1- If they gave a war and nobody came, ...uhh, that would be France. (surrender)
2- War hasn't solved anything except... SLAVERY, GENOCIDE, OPPRESSION, NAZI-ISM... you know, "the little things" that don't matter.
As far as America moving toward fascism due to Bush and conservative Christians... there is a complete and total lack of evidence to support that claim, however there is much evidence to the contrary which I am prepared to go into in great detail... if anyone would like.
Here is a "sermon" from Meyers delivered to students at OU that is revered on the liberal internet scene... and here is Cam Edwards refuting Robin Meyers.
If you plan to attend a church service at the Mayflower Congregational Church... bring your own tin-foil hat and your "VOTE DEMOCRAT" war protest sign.
Donations go straight to the Democrat party in the form of political endorsements from the pulpit in the name of separation of church and state.
