Loving your fellow man…the golden rule…all concepts apparently lost on a radical, hate-propagating Christian group known as Christians for a Moral America.
Back in November, when George Michael went through a lengthy hospitalization after a life-threatening bout of pneumonia, fans and friends were sending thoughts his way. But the CFAMA was sending something else entirely—a call for its followers to pray for his death.
Well, guess who has something to say about that?
"Speaking of which, did you know that while I was fighting for my life in Austria there were a bunch of those lovely American 'Christian' organizations, who call themselves 'Christians for a Moral America,' who were actually taking the time to pray for me to die…check this out," Michael tweeted yesterday, linking to their blog posting rejoicing in his illness, and thus kicking off a lengthy Twitter rant.
"How very sweet of them, considering how busy they must be on the whole. Now don't get me wrong, I know for a fact that many devout Christians, such as the one I work rest and play with on a daily basis, are truly wonderful, kind hearted men and women who take the best parts of that religion and live admirable, generous and loving lives.
"But in my opinion, and I think those made evident by those who prayed for my death, there are others who use their twisted interpretations of ancient scriptures as a pathetic excuse to be…wait for it, wait for it….!
"Totally f--ked up c--ksucking bastards. And not in a good way….! Oh my GOD that felt good…I must be getting BETTER!"
As for what kind of group would pray for someone's death in the first place, well, it's the same group that staged a live-burning of a photo of Ricky Gervais, has called for a boycott of Glee, Adam Lambert, the Golden Globes and The Hobbit (because of "Satan's Little Helper" Peter Jackson, who is using "witchcraft and wizardry to peddle the film"), and lists feminists, Muslims, homosexuals, liberals and atheists as the five biggest dangers in America.
Its post on George Michael was filed under the heading: "Yet another victim to the homosexual lifestyle; George Michael on his deathbed."
Though he was suffering from pneumonia, the Twitter feed linked to the story along with the hashtag "#AIDS."
"George Michael is reportedly close to death after being struck down with pneumonia (a symptom of AIDS," the post read, adding that he had been "plaguing his body with drugs and no doubt sexual diseases."
"It's also symbolic that just after the 20th anniversary of Freddie Mercury's death from AIDS that another famous homosexual would succumb to this disease.
"We pray that George Michael has found salvation through Christ in his last days otherwise he will pay for his unrepentant lifestyle in hell."
WWJD? We're pretty certain—anything but that.
