The Bigger Issues

ETA 6/30/2010 @ 7:20pm: The following is a piece of satire.

So I found out a few days ago that Jerry Falwell Jr. and I totally share a deep, dark secret. Lean in close and I'll tell you.

We both apparently doubt that eternal consequences are as important as temporal ones.

Last week in an interview with Glenn Beck, Falwell quipped, "There are bigger issues now, we can argue about theology later after we save the country."

Exactly Jerry.

I've taken hits before because I think that it's wrong to deny rights to gay and lesbian Americans. And unbelievably wrong to strip rights away that have already been granted. These are things that I believe are a grave injustices that tear at our country's principles of freedom and justice for all. Plus, when the charge is being led by Christians, I think these things make us all look like Fred Phelps. And I'm sure that it makes my gay Christian friends feel like garbage.

I think that it's important to see that Americans not go bankrupt because of a medical crisis. I'm a fan, not just health care reform, but of a full on socialist single-payer system.

I don't like nativities or the ten commandments at courthouses. I don't think organized prayer in public schools is okay. I don't think "under God" should be in the pledge.

I've been told that these aren't important things. What's really important is correct theology. Because that's eternal and has far more important consequences. And in the past, I've never really had a good comeback for that. Because really, how do you disagree with that?

Now, thanks to my new best buddy, the chancellor and president of "the world's largest Christian university," I'm all set.

Don't like my views on health care? "There are bigger issues now, we can argue about theology later after we save the country." Think that I'm a heathen for supporting gay rights? "There are bigger issues now, we can argue about theology later after we save the country." Question my patriotism for not supporting the war in Iraq? "There are bigger issues now, we can argue about theology later after we save the country."

So go ahead. Share the gospel. Show people that God loves them. Feed the hungry, house the homeless, befriend the lonely. Be Jesus to the world.

Jerry and I are going to focus on the bigger issues.
