Iowa’s leading libertine, most  unreticent and outspoken advocate of  execrative invidious misanthropic, misopolemical, mordacious, hate-filled, 1 advocate and apologist for unlimited genocide against the LGBT community and women who make a choice in contradiction to his own agenda for self-righteousness, and a return to an age of darkness, 2 Bob Vander Plaats of West Des Moines, Iowa, is a junque of invented intelligence who pontifically proclaims himself to be a follower of the Emperor Constantine (306-337 CE) I’s Christian Church “3” and, like the emperor, prattlingly preaches parched Paulinity (the official state religion of Pagan Rome). While Constantine’s new state-created religion was officially known as Christianity: a legislated and court controlled faith that incorporated the writings and tales of thousands of crucified Christs (christus: Χριστός), it had nothing in common with the message of peace or love that the Jesus of the Constantinian gospels said or did.

The vile, wrenching, withering, scraping, grasping, clutching, covetous, covert, crass institution, known as the Christian Church, was conceived in loathing liberties,  born in bosomed bitterness and nourished on flames of an imaginary perdition that consumed the works of dissenters, as it burped into the world on the back of odious opportunistic  overseers, spite-filled saucy supervisors (επιτηρητής) and contrarietistic guardian ghouls of an intolerant religion that damned and persecuted people predatory priests pushed to the foreground of the first feigned faith in the imperial cult”4

The alleged persecuted Christians became, swiftly, the persecutors demanding obedience to a stark evangelical extremism especially against outsiders and pagan worship–leading to the martyrdom, and later beatification and sainthood of numerous self-actualizing homosexuals. “5” Quoting Eusebius Pamphilius: Church History, Life of Constantine, Oration in Praise of Constantine: the author noted that those that did not bow the knee to the invented religion “he [the Emperor] razed to their foundations those of them which had been the chief objects of superstitious reverence”.”6“.

Because of the barbaric nature of “the greatest evil on earth”: the Emperor’s religion that “the state anointed as Christianity”, most of Eastern Europe rigorously rejected the rogue religion roughly rejected as “the Emperor’s religion” and did not capitulate until their leaders received sufficient monetary bribes to force conversions, as occurred in Romania, Bulgaria, Ukraine and Russia.”7

The Christian cult was housed in ekklesia (εκκλησία, today it is known, incorrectly linguistically, as a church) that were law courts or tribunals,”8” similar to and akin with the monstrous maniacal medieval Inquisition where pathetic pedophile preachers pranced prettily in delicate lace over-garments rose to the ranks of High Inquisitors.

These theocratic terrorists were lawyers by decree and degree, winning public recognition from state leaders without any competence or confidence of the people, so much like Vander Plaats coterie.  Boasting bloatedly that they were “licensed attorneys” they tried those who rejected imperial or episcopal authority and the rant of what became a dastardly and dangerously despised word: Christianity. Late fourth and later century’s prelates earned the label of the greatest group of persecutors the world had never seen before. “9

Dissenters were tried for apostasy, heresy, and (even worse in the minds of civil magistrates and legislators) disagreeing with law makers who preached a god neither they nor their own people knew, understood or cared for, as religion was only to enrich the lazy and bring laurels to cowardly clerics.  Legislators rose to “defend god”–since the goblin could not defend itself against the onslaught of doctrinal disagreements or the ambivalence of the aristocracy that used faith as a means to control the poor and those who labored for pitiful wages while the few harvested coin, gold and grain into their bursting graneries while taxing the diminishing middle class.”10“.

Those who had challenged the established order were summarily dispatched as dissenters and nonconformists “11”  Execution in the name of any god was, and is, as old as the story of mortals, and was a part of every government that felt threatened from the blood-soaked records of Joshua and Gideon, to that of the Tsars/Czars and Latin American puppet dictatorships from Pinochet to Peru’s Alberto Fujimori and his henchman Vladimiro Montesino who depended on Henry Kissinger to prop them up against popular appeals for justice when their blood-drenched primates were not busy “with affairs of worship”: ruling over people and destroying what little conduct of inquiry existed in their crime invested nations–all done in the name of The Savior who no one knew.

Only an uneducated fool would ever term Vander Plaats a follower of Jesus. Vander Plaats, an avid viewer of Fox News and other Rupert Murdoch media that was cited as authoritative investigative journalism and the light to cast out the darkness of a “liberal cabal” that threatened the wealth and privilege of the few who controlled not only industries but farms and other means of production. A recent study by PublicMind Poll, of the Murdoch empire, focused primarily on Fox News showed how the media and a few controlled the many “12” was conducted by Fairleigh Dickinson University.  The probe into the wasteland of the Murdoch empire found that viewers of Fox News were less informed about world events than people who don’t watch any news at all. When reading the raw stories fabricated by Vander Plaats and his gang, one sees easily that the would be dictator of Iowa morals and education has throughout his sordid, squalid, sensuous-less life lived by intimidating others.  Vander Plaats and his henchmen crassly cast aspersions on those Vander Plaats has never bothered to understand or filter through in his warped, debauched and twisted  psychology to indicate even a modicum of charity or desire to help. In truth, Vander Plaats and his intimates are more in keeping with the rogue Albanian nun who called herself Teresa of Calcutta who stole from the poor to build retirement homes for priests while than the Jesus who preached beatitudes from the mountains in Israel.

On the contrary, Bob Vander Plaats and his sophistic shielded and subjectively obedient wife Darla Granstra, who is but a footnote in his political biography “13” are stranded in the decaying forest of imaginary enemies used to frighten others with absurdities of End of Times (plagiarized from various pharaonic ages, and tales of desperation born on the subcontinent of what is today known as India) and juggernaut judgments juggled over the fires of hell or the prison of pernicious priests and pastors preying for their salvation, in direct opposition to the warning of the Jesus of Constantine’s synoptic gospels linked haphazardly together in the first Bibles written in 331 CE (under Imperial Edict) by Bishop Eusebius.

Vander Plaats argues that government was instituted by his god. This is not found anywhere in the Judeo-Christian bible. Matthew 7:1 clearly reads: μη κρινετε ινα μη κριθητε, that was buttressed by the discipleship in the Book of the Acts of the Apostles: once approved by the Emperor.

It had long been believed by the Roman world that Emperors were both gods and intercessors/high priests of gods. This was seen in the Imperial Roman title used by all emperors: Pontifex Maximus: the High Priest of the Collegium Pontificum (College of Pontiffs).  Neither the title nor the office of the Pontifex Maximus was not abandoned until the reign of Gratian (375-383 CE). “14“.  Today nearly all evangelical (a word that originally meant “true” or “invoked by angels”) churches have bishops–and office that did not exist in the first two centuries of the current era.

The emperors were either popularly or self-declared gods. Their laws, their words, their commands were declared divine laws.  None could dare disobey these spiritless sychophants and those who instituted, and enforced with a vengeance their rule of law.”15“.

Vander Plaats knowledge of the Bible is not even marginal.  Vander Plaats knowledge of sacred scripture as defined in Christianity is nonexistent.  His mistranslation of δικτάτορα του δόγματός is not government (κυβέρνηση) but the phrase dictator of doctrine. There have been no good translations since 331, and subsequent “holy writings” carry the imprint of passionate redactors and scribes intent on instilling their theology with the approval of secular rulers and authorities.

Vander Plaats is no theologian, nor is he a philologist or linguist. His education is limited; his academic credentials are sparce.  Vander Plaats studied to be a coach and taught at Boone, Iowa: a hotbed of Iowa KKK activities, as I have detailed in other articles.

Vander Plaats is ignorant of all Biblical languages. The self-styled “Leader” (or Führer) does not have one academic hour of hermeneutics or exegetical studies to his credit. This dearth does not stop him, as he lectures the legislature of Iowa on whom to vote for to sit on the Board of Regents, or who is qualified to be a judge who follows his will and not the letter of the law. Self-righteously Vander Plaats proclaims himself a teacher and spokesperson for the wisdom of his demonic god whom/that he claims is the author and initial legislator of government. “16

There has never been a single bible quote Vander Plaats has used to strengthen his honing of theocracy into a fabric of the current democracy that is authentically used. His quotations are nothing less than enfeebled attempts to rewrite the Bible to meet his own radical political agenda, and propel the former coach into the scarred role that Adolf Hitler demanded for himself in his beer hall putsch.

Romans 13:1 does not mention government. “17” It is a reference to the community.  The only individuals who cited it as a civil authority of government were perpetrators of Holocausts: Pope Urban II who called for the bloody crusades so that second and third sons redirect their violence against peaceful Muslims and Jews who occupied the Holy Lands that originally belonged to the Phoenicians and Palestinians, Pope Gregory IX who began the Medieval Inquisition by setting up in Toulouse, France, in 1232 the vile machinery that tore tortured confessions from the innocent before moving it to Aragon–a practice never condemned by Martin Luther or Jean Calvin but was used by their benefactor princes in a way that would be copied by Adolph Hitler in the Third Reich and George W. Bush at Guantanamo Bay Naval Base in Cuba.

Contrary to the carnivorous contortions of facts by Vander Plaats and his disciples, the Jesus of the Imperial Gospels drew a sharp and distinct line separating state and church (Matthew 22:21). “18”.  Nowhere is there even a remote reference that a mortal may act as, or intercede with, a god, or call upon the deity for judgment predetermined by a secular hand.  This is in contradiction to Matthew 7:1.

Government is, and always has been, created by humans. “19”  One can find clear similarities between Vander Plaats and the Pharisee who pretends to be in direct communication with his draconian god.  Government is “instituted” by men and their government institution reflects the character of the society that created it.

Vander Plaats claims to be a “man of god” but proves the opposite.  Jesus never urged his followers to take political action. Jesus warned hypocrites who would attempt to judge and rule over others that they were taking a sword that was not for them to wield, and said: “He who takes up the sword will die by the sword”. “20”  Facts show that the christianos who claimed to follow the New Testament Jesus eschewed the perceived evil of political involvement or secular participation–much like Iowa’s Amish.

Jesus cautioned self-styled and self-proclaimed preachers of hate like Bryan Fischer, James Dobson, Francis I, and Bob Vander Plaats: “My government is not of this world.”  “21”.  To one was commissioned to rule anything–not even in Matthew 16:18-19, as that was a reference to spiritual power based on faith, a doctrine revitalized by protesting sixteenth century reformers.

The greatest evil embedded in the mindless rant of Vander Plaats is the poison he spreads among the young, the emerging scholars, who are treading backward into obscurity at once-reputable institutions such as the 263 students in Pella (Iowa) Christian High School (grades 9-12). There he, and other evangelical extremists, feed a poisonous dose of mistranslations, mass produced by the nefarious Gideon Society, and parochial sectarian interpretations that have nothing in common even with the far older texts from which they were plagiarized. For example, Vander Plaats, who protests too frequently against homosexuality and thus may be surrendering his darkest personal secret in his over-protestation, “22” claims that two people of the same gender cannot truly love one another.

According to his edition of the Bible, the writers of the First Letter to the People at Corinth, love is without discrimination or limit, but, in the misguided mindset of Vander Plaats, “love” belongs between only to one man and one woman: a dicta that has no Biblical foundation. “23” Solomon had 700 wives and 300 concubines (1 Kings 11:1-3), and David had a harem (2 Samuel 2-3 f). No where in ancient scripture is love mentioned–except between David and Jonathan, son of King Saul (1 Samuel 18:1: ויהי ככלתו לדבר אל־שאול ונפש יהונתן נקשרה בנפש דוד [ויאהבו כ] (ויאהבהו ק) יהונתן כנפשו׃ (the Paleo-Hebrew version) and 20:17: וַיֹּוסֶף יְהֹונָתָן לְהַשְׁבִּיעַ אֶת־דָּוִד בְּאַהֲבָתֹו אֹתֹו כִּי־אַהֲבַת נַפְשֹׁו אֲהֵבֹו׃ ס–and it was an “intimate” love–not a platonic love); no where, contrary to Vander Plaats and Maggie Gallagher is monogamy detailed, demanded, or discussed.  “Monogamy” is not found in any Hebrew or Greek bible nor in any Hebrew or Greek concordance.  Like Gallagher, Vander Plaats is a fraud.

Even Vander Plaats deification of Saul of Tarsus as a rank homophobe cannot be proven in any of the letters that Saul of Tarsus allegedly wrote (the handwriting and the style and word choice various between the epistles, and indicates a plurality of authors). Saul (St. Paul) made no similar claim, as seen in the recharacterisation and transmogrification by the original writers’ redactors of an alleged letter to the community of believers in the Greek city of Corinth gave, ordered, or registered a limit as to who could love whom or how the love was to be transfigured as “love encompasses all things.”  “24” and makes no gender reference.

Vander Plaats has a difficult time defining or understanding the word “all”: όλα that appears as λαός (laos) — the people.  The Jesus of the New Testament as published by Eusebius made no reference to or comment about homosexuality or about abortion, differentiated between genders or subordinated one to another.  That comes with the invention of letters by Saul who was never directly nor personally selected as an apostle by Jesus.  Acts 15:35 merely states that “Paul” was a “teacher”: not a prophet and not an apostle. In reference to Ananias, Paul is only referred to as a “chosen instrument” (skeuos ekloges) but not as an Apostle (Acts 9:15) “25”  These are twisted inventions in the spasmodic mind of Bob Vander Plaats.

It is difficult not to ignore any potential schadenfreude concocted out of thin air by Vander Plaats or Hurley, as Vander Plaats and Hurley are a cornucopia of absurdities and deranged comments. The travesty of the radical religious Republican right is not shared by all Republicans in the state of Iowa. Of polled Iowa Republicans, 56% oppose a legislative ban on gay marriages, 30% are indifferent and have not expressed special interest; the most hate-filed homophobic Republican is Charles Hurley, Vander Plaats personal “licensed attorney”, who works to get like-minded candidates who agree with Vander Plaats to further the Repubican Party’s policy of division, separation, and the creation of a small tent for the chosen few on the 2014 ballot.  “26

It is but a handful of very vocal viciously venomous vipers in the fringe that has a high percentage of Iowa KKK (most are found in Boone, Iowa) and Neo-Nazi/White Supremacist groups (headquartered in Charles City, Iowa)  that gather as a gaggle behind Vander Plaats and their movement to curtail and rescind human rights and civil liberties. This came to the foreground with some of the most morally and ethically bankrupt Iowa legislators in the House of Representatives. As the Iowa City Gazette reported on April 26, 2013  “27“:

A handful of House conservatives want to reduce the pay of Iowa Supreme Court justices involved in a 2009 decision striking down a ban on same-sex marriages as part of an effort to maintain the balance of power in state government.” Representative Tom Shaw (R-Laurens) complained: “It’s our responsibility to maintain the balance of power” between the three co-equal branches of government.

State Rep. Dwayne Alons

Representative Dwayne Alons (R-Hull), who claimed that homosexuality is a public health hazard akin to smoking, “28” opined, that the justices “trashed the separation of powers” with their unanimous Varnum v. Brein decision and implementation of same-sex marriage without a change in state law banning any marriages expect between one man and one woman. The decision was made based on the concept Iowa had long held and defended: equal rights for all under the law.

Alons rejected the legal opinions of the justices as he flaunted conspicuously, defiantly, and boldly popular opinion pontificating that the amendment introduced by Shaw and himself as House File 120 (the judicial branch budget bill) to lower the salaries of the four justices on the seven-member court who were part of the unanimous Varnum v. Brein decision to $25,000 (the same wage as a state legislator) falsely, flatulently was not punitive legislation. It was “just a means to make things right”. Alons became by self-anointing the arbitrator and deity determining right from wrong based on bias, bigotry and ignorance. Following the missteps of Alons, Shaw attempted to justify their amendment by prattling: “We’re just holding them responsible for their decision, for going beyond their bounds.”

Alons’ ignorance of the rubrics, regulations, and rule of law and lack of any scholarly knowledge of legal and ethical vocabulary and semantics is underwhelming. The legal definition of punitive is “inflicting punishment: punitive laws; punitive action” based on a past action not accepted by a current legislative body.  “29” Punitive legislation such as that introduced by Alons has little foundation in the annals of law.  It is relegated only to those actions that are particularly heinous, malicious or of a highhanded nature—none that can be considered to be a part of a unanimous Supreme Court judgment as with Varnum v. Brein and could, in fact, lead to legal action against the legislators in general, and against Alons and Shaw in particular.

Alons, who has sat in the Iowa legislature since 1999, is neither a lawyer nor an intellectual. He claims that he is a farmer. His biography says that he rreceived a B.S. in Mathematics from Northwestern College (a private Christian college in Sioux City, Iowa, that is “Bible based” on current translations and requires submission to doctrinal teachings) where freedom of expression and inquiry are “not encouraged”.

Alons took an M.S. in Management from the University of Arkansas-Fayetteville, and “a little [sic] coursework”  (according to his Iowa Legislator official biography) at the Army War College.  He is known for his bigotry and as a fanatic religious fundamentalist amazingly similar to Muslim jihadists with no training in hermeneutics or any form of Bible studies except as conveyed tepidly by his Christ Community Church.

State Rep. Tom Shaw

State Rep. Tom Shaw

Tom Shaw (R-Laurens), who has the startling distinction of being Vice Chair on the Iowa Legislature’s Ethics Committee (a branch of philosophy that involves systematizing, defending, and recommending concepts of right and wrong conduct, but which Shaw insists must be based on his interpretation of his bible and not the general understanding of what is ethical behavior, which thinkers such as Hegel would disagree with), is an ardent radical, void of any appreciable knowledge on human development, or medical or mental science (psychology or psychiatry) concerning zygotes that do not have a brain, or any organ that can feel sensation or make judgments, decisions, or even determine its own needs or fulfill them.

Sperm enters ova.

Sperm enters ova.

There is no biological guarantee that any sperm will make contact with and penetrate an egg that leads to conception; nor is there any study that finds once a sperm breaks through the egg that there will be living fertilization, or the generation of a zygote.

Shaw is preoccupied with the movement of sperm more than the movement of human rights once the embryo enters the world of the living mortal being.  Most sperm dies during the ejaculation period that leads many people into mistranslating and misinterpreting the biblical story of Onan (Genesis 38:9) a reference to coitus interruptus and not masturbation.

10mm embryo from an ectopic pregnancy

Pathetically, in rejecting all scientific experiments, investigations and communications to the contrary, Shaw argues that life begins at conception. Shaw bluntly intoning his total lack of any serious education, succinct study, or understanding of fetology, embryology or any human or animal science.

Like Alons, Shaw is a farmer, and a homophobe.  He is illiterate in all biblical languages and rambles when discussing it seeking cues and clues from his pastor who has as much knowledge as the senator.  Like Vander Plaats, Shaw ardently believes that homosexuality is condemned in the Bible, yet the English language did not find its beginning until had not even started . English was a West Germanic language that originated from Anglo-Frisian dialects brought to Britain by Germanic invaders and/or settlers from various parts of the Roman Empire and was in a state of flux when the Island kingdoms were invaded by Danes, Swedes, Norsemen (who became Normans, settling in Normandy France and ultimately conquering England in 1066 CE) and others. They had no English Bible until the seventh century CE and that was Old English–and it had no word “homosexual” and there was no mention of abortion in any copy.  What Shaw calls “the English Bible” did not appear until Wycliffe, battered by Tyndale, enhanced from the German of Martin Luther who was initially rejected by King Henry VIII until his loins demanded a divorce from Catherine of Aragon, and not brought into being until 1611 b y the bisexual King James VI (Scotland) & I (England) with the ministrations of his boyfriend “Stinky” the Duke of Buckingham.

Shaw’s mastery of the English tongue and its history is as non-existent as is his knowledge of Biblical languages.  Shaw misconstrues ויקרא that is imperative in a more careful reading defines וְאֶת־זָכָר לֹא תִשְׁכַּב מִשְׁכְּבֵי אִשָּׁה תֹּועֵבָה הִוא׃ being the non-Apiru practice of Qadesh: the worship service of the Egyptian god/goddess of pleasure (Bastet, Pasch, Ubasti, Ba en Aset) who changed gender in quest of prayer and praise of the Egyptian Trinity: Is[is]-Ra-El.

Osiris (the Father), Isis (the Mother), Horus (the Child) also known as El

Osiris (the Father), Isis (the Mother), Horus (the Child) also known as El

IS-RA-EL (Bastet was the daughter of the Sun God Ra, redefined as the Son of God and second in the Holy Trinity of Egypt, while El, who was also known as Horus, was a god of spirit and wisdom who helped the Great Creatrix Isis) gave birth, centuries later, to the Christian creation of a Trinity, and was the favored deities in the original Abrahamic religions from which the Apiru sourced and became the antecedents for Jews (Hebrews), Christians, and Muslims (Islams).  Originally, the Hebrews/Apirus were mercenaries for the Akkadians who were the third millennium BCE people who developed a very intimate cultural symbiosis with the Sumerians, in part because of their insistance and need for bilingualism: giving rise to the myth of the Tower of Babel (Hebrew: מגדל בבל‎ Migdal Bavel Arabic: برج بابل‎ Borj Baabel; Genesis 11:19) and a period of universal peace that was the result of a common language and heritage before a jealous demon “caused confusion and a mixture of languages”. It is an old Babylonian story taken from Akkadian script and plagiarized into the Torah by redactors to hide its origin in an effort to make the Hebrews/Apiru a Chosen People. We find the same account in  the Sibylline Oracles (iii. 117-129), Abydenus (the author of a History of the Chaldeans and Assyrians) of which some fragments are preserved by Eusebius in his Praeparatio Evangelica, and by Cyril of Alexandria in his work against Julian (cp. fragments 5 and 6), and was the Etemenanki (Sumerian: “temple of the foundation of heaven and earth”) “30” and dedicated to the god Marduk–not Yahweh who was a minor agricultural god married to the Canaanite goddess Asherah (Venus) who allowed Yahweh unlimited debauchery and sexual license similar to that enjoyed by Allah.

If Shaw read cuneiform or hieroglyphics he would discover that most of his Bible is taken directly from far older and more pagan sources.  The fairytale found in Genesis 11 was incorporated into the literature of the Apiru in an effort to explain why everyone did not speak the same tongue, and why they rejected any promise or offer of learning a second or third language: making them appear as an exclusive and elusive separate entity and people.

Qadesh: a Semitic goddes of sex, fertility, rebirth and regeneration; known as the Resurrection

Qadesh: a Semitic goddes of sex, fertility, rebirth and regeneration; known as the Resurrection

The Apiru/Hebrews brought with them the goddess Qadesh, as read in the account of Joshua who sought advice and help from the prostitute Rehab, when they invaded Canaan and transliterated their name to Hebrew.  “31”  This was to cover their theft of the land of ancient Palestinians (Arabic: فلسطين‎ Filasṭīn; Greek: Παλαιστίνη, Palaistinē; Hebrew: פלשתינה Palestina, a geographic expression for land and people in Western Asia on the Mediterranean Sea, and is found in the hieroglyphs of ancient Egypt c. 1150 BCE)  “32” who had been in the area for more than 15,000 years, long before Hebrews existed  “33”  Vander Plaats, Hurley, Alons and Shaw and their cavernous cults show absolute antediluvinal arrogance in their irrational ignorance of Leviticus 18:22  “34“.  The passage is not a condemnation of a physical act.  Leviticus 18:22 is the rejection of a non-tribal Hebrew religious rite.

Parthenogenesis

Parthenogenesis

The issue is of the continuing practice of Egyptians and special dual-sex/dual-gender deities and priests/priestesses (hermaphrodites) that led to the recording of virgin births (parthenogenesis: development of an egg without fertilization by sperm). There was no Torah or Prophets at that time: they flush into being only with superior plagiarism from older Sumerian, Akkadian, Samarian, Greek and Egyptian theologies.

Parthenogenesis and cloning

Parthenogenesis and cloning

Parthenogenesis means that the male is neither necessary nor useful, as the female can reproduce by herself: it is the story of virgin births, as with the star fish that can lose one limb and regrow it and the lost limb can reproduce an entire star fish.  Senator Shaw has no justification for existence except as an accident of birth because of missing DNA cells in his mother’s uterus (the uterus, itself, in time will be useless).  As Richard Leaky showed the world with his discovery of the skeleton remains of “Lucy” (the common name of AL 288-1, several hundred pieces of bone representing about 40% of the skeleton of an individual Australopithecus afarensis discovered in 1974 in Ethiopia and lived more than 3.2 million years ago–not the 6000 years Biblical literalists claim for the age of this water planet misnamed Earth), woman/female evolved before any male. No ancient/prehistoric male was necessary to create ancestors for Senator Shaw or Bob Vander Plaats and others sitting in the Iowa Legislature void of any real education.

Lucy  shows evidence of small skull capacity akin to that of apes and of bipedal upright walk akin to that of humans. This further justifies Darwin’s theory that Shaw and evangelical extremists deny in their ignorance, showed no sign of having a Bible or a belief in any deity demanding blood or praise.

Vander Plaats, Hurley, Alons and Shaw are even more confused (I use that word to be charitable) when it comes to their erroneous interpretation of the worthless translation in their Bibles concerning the alleged condemnation of Paul/Saul. Paul/Saul, it is claimed wrongly, wrote against “homosexuals”–never, not once, against homosexuality as an act, in Romans 1:26-27.  “35

This is also the case in 1 Corinthians 6:9-11 where the individuals who are condemned are those who “abuse others” and are among “the unbelievers”,  “36” similar to that in 1 Timothy 1:9-11, showing the marks of a gloss inserted by an ambitious scribe. Here, too, it was not against a people (homosexuals: gay men and lesbians) but against a cultural cult or religion.  “37

The verb “γνωρίζω” means “to become acquainted with a partner”.  It is a reference to not knowing the individual sufficiently before consummating and love action and is more in keeping with rape where rapists were excluded from a society. The adjective χρήσις is bidirectional and means mutual: the foundation for lasting love. The entire issue is concerning those who were countrymen (pagans) and not a part of the Chosen (Set-apart) People of the Book. It is a reference equal to stoning adulterers—a way of “purifying” society by making it stagnant.  “38”.

Cretinous Christians such as Vander Plaats, Alons and Shaw tear down the very pillars that the one they call Lord Jesus tried to build gospel claims and expose their Paulinity as among the most barbarous of faiths far worse than anything that al-Qaeda could conceive. They have sanctioned war, have participated in military exercises, and praised violence against women. Their numbers have swollen with nonexculpated evangelical extremist legislators: Amy Sinclair, Nancy Boettger, David Johnson, Jake Chapman, Mark Segebart, Bill Anderson, Joni Ernst, Rick Bertrand and state Senator Dennis Guth  “39” who trumpet that a state can nullify federal law and supreme court rulings at will) calling on Iowans to murder abortion providers, or charge abortion providers with murder,  “40” (with Republican Tom Shaw claiming that a zygote is equal to a teenager boy or girl or an adult), while Des Moines’ abortion foe

Dave Leach of Des Moines: "Kill all abortion providers"

Dave Leach of Des Moines: “Kill all abortion providers”

Dave Leach has been calling on people to kill all abortion providers  “41” following the vocal insanity of South Dakota state Republican Representative Phil Jensen that was cosponsored by twenty-two other state representatives and four state senators “42“, all in direct opposition to Old Testament prohibitions by a god they claim to worship “43“.  In the New Testament we find similar allusions, illusions, and prototypes all of that are plagiarisms and pirated paraphrasing from classic Greek legends, especially the Aeneas:

Tu, genitor, cape sacra manu, patriosque penates:

Me bello tanto digressum, et caede recenti,

Attrectare nefas; donec me flumine vivo Abluero. 44

Not one of these cryptic cabalistic men has anything in common with the Jesus they claim is the spiritual head over their houses of worship. They are not followers of Jesus but followers of the Emperor Constantine I and his inverted invention of Christianity at the Council of Nicaea.

It has been suggested that Tom Shaw is so radical, surpassing even the ayatollahs of Iran, that he wants to declare sperm human and to masturbate a premeditated murder of the “unborn”, and that nocturnal emissions (wet-dreams) are murder by accident. This gives a new meaning to the word “insanity.” Shaw follows the path of Hitler’s Himmler who created the “Reich Central Office for the Combating of Homosexuality and Abortion” and chortles the same fate for Iowa “45“.

Homosexuality is not now, nor has it even been condemned anywhere in religious literature before the middle of the tenth century, and only did Damian denounce it in his book Liber Gomorrhianus (Gomorrah) written c. 1051 CE,  in preparation for the Final Day and Last Blast on the Heavenly Trumet that had not yet materialized and used it in an appeal to Pope Leo IX to root it out from the clergy–an action that even Benedict XVI did not do nor call for its enforcement.  Damian had no concept of what homosexuality was, for one of his strongest charges was that priests masturbated, and that their sperm was dedicated to his god. He was especially indignant about priests having sexual relationships with adolescent boys, seeing in the youth a feminine quality that went against Paul/Saul who worried that any sign of gentleness would lead men away from the worship of a mighty warrior god whose nature was macho. Damian singles out superiors who, due to excessive and misplaced piety, have been lax in their duty to uphold church discipline, much in the way of American Archbishops and bishops, especially the Roman Catholic bishop of Sioux City, Iowa.

The publication of Liber Gomorrhianus caused an outcry–against Damian who was seen as overly vicious and uncharitable, and even the Pope wrote to the alleged saint that he was to calm his book and show some charity–homosexuality had long been a part within the Roman Catholic Church.  “46”  A careful reading of Liber Gomorrhianus, shows severe psychological and sexual problems within the psychology of Damian who found sin in everything and himself the arbiter of sin.  Damian’s concept and refutation of reality was an offshoot of the Age of Fear and Superstition (the Middle Ages or Dark Ages) and was based on bad translations and the push for clergy to control everyone and everything even without biblical justification.  What was forgotten in 1051, when Damian wrote his soft-erotica, was that when Christianity came into existence in the fourth century there was no major outcry, as homosexuality was considered to be sexual inversion: that which went against understood “order of things” but which was not condemned. “47“. The word homosexual does not appear until 1863 when Karl Heinrich Ulrichs brought it into the lexicon of languages “48

Historian Michael Foucault argued that homosexual and heterosexual identities did not emerge until the 19th century; before that time terms described practices and not identity. Foucault cites “Westphal’s famous article of 1870 on ‘contrary sexual sensations'” as the “date of birth” of the categorization of the homosexual “49 : Gallimard, 1976, the first volume in his Histoire de la sexualité, then in English (1978) as The History of Sexuality: An Introduction. New York : Pantheon Books, ©1978-<©1986 >]”.

Those who are opposed to homosexuality, especially among the self-anointed clergy like Scott Lively who help author the “Kill the Gay” legislation in Uganda  “50” see the only permanent solution to homosexuality as being death.  This was a part of the pogrom of Adolf Hitler, that sent over one million gay men to their deaths at his concentration camps–camps that are encouraged to be built in the USA by the nations most extremist evangelical  clergy, such as the predatory pastor Charles Worley of Maiden, North Carolina’s Providence Road Baptist Church who applauded the Nazi “experiment” and demanded similar camps for gays and lesbians  “51” who has the same genocide mentality as Bob Vander Plaats.

Worley’s histrionics from pounding his bible with the enthusiasm as the genocide advocate Bob Vander Plaats and more than twenty-two Republican Representatives in the Iowa Legislature, showing definite signs of mental illness, to salviating as if on cue  “52

Matt Windschitl wants all Iowans armed on the State Fair Grounds, in court rooms, and in public buildings.

Matt Windschitl wants all Iowans armed on the State Fair Grounds, in court rooms, and in public buildings.

There is a solution: frightening, frothing feverishly toward carnage, but definetely a way to bring about the Republican legislators in Des Moines, Iowa, empyrean thirst to experience Armageddon in the same manner as was lusted for by the  völkisch Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei that brought about the Third Reich Parteimitglieder that outlawed abortions and those who had one or performed one were subject to the death penalty “53“. Homosexual males were murdered or sent to death camps while lesbians were raped and sent to concentration camps.  Books on human sexulity were burned in public, and educators, scientists, and medical practioners tortured  “54“, and all the ghosts that spite the Republicans in Iowa today through the process of Gleichschaltung.

Among the most radical Republicans is Representative Matt Windschitl, R-Missouri Valley, who introduced House File 2160  “55” that bars the state fair board from prohibiting “any dangerous weapon on the state fairgrounds,” including any buildings, “when the carrying, transportation, or possession is otherwise lawful under the laws of this state.” Windschitl argues for a government by violence, for violence, and of violence. Following Windschitl’s dicta it is wise for those who believe in human rights and civil liberties to carry automatic and semi-automatic firearms into the Iowa Legislature and confront Windschitl, Alons, Shaw, and others who claim that they have the right to legislate choice, behavior, marriage and other human rights—and if faced with force to fire their weapons directly at the Iowa State legislators starting with Windschitl, Alons, Shaw and others who would deny human rights, as Windschitl encouraged in House File 2160.

Conventional wisdom dictates that Windschitl must receive the first salvo from any weapon since he argues that no one is subject to the law as it currently restricts carrying, possessing, and using firearms in Iowa public buildings and open spaces. Witlessly Windschitl has signed his own death warrant, and the death warrants of law enforcement officials who attempt to protect him are equally condemned to death by their disallowance of the naiveté of the young lawmaker’s  sciolistic ukase.  Those who seek an abortion, a human right confirmed by the US Supreme Court in Roe v. Wade, and are stopped by protesters who are putting barriers in their way to obtaining an abortion or closing clinics that can provide safe and medically correct abortions have the right to use any weapon to kill the protesters regardless of the protesters age or gender or physical condition as well as all of  the legislators who would deny them their right of choice.  As Thomas Jefferson wrote:

Prudence, indeed, will dictate that governments long established, should not be changed for light and transient causes; and, accordingly, all experience [has] shown that mankind are more disposed to suffer while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But, when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object, evinces a design to reduce [the people] under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new guards for their future security.”  “56“.

Tom Shaw and Dwayne Alons are typical of the Republicans in the Iowa Legislature: ignorant, self-serving and destroying what little positive image the State of Iowa still has and is forfeiting rapidly. If they are remembered at all, it will be similar to the memory of those who tried and sentenced to death Socrates for teaching his students to question all things, believe only in the conduct of inquiry and to question the government and the fools that sit in power similar to the imbiciles seated in the Iowa Legislature in Des Moines.

Trial of Galileo and Church rejection of science.

Trial of Galileo and Church rejection of science.

This was the fate of the Vatican Curia in its attempt to silence Galileo, where the famed Stephen Hawking used his rebuke from the sinister John Paul II who forbade him to read the trial transcript of Galileo and warned the Jesuits within the Vatican that neither they nor Hawking should investigate the essence and cause of the Big Bang, claiming it was an investigation into the evolving, excogitating, expanding ontology of

"Science does not leave much room (space) for miracles nor for god"--Stephen Hawking

“Science does not leave much room (space) for miracles nor for god”–Stephen Hawking

god “57Madame Marie Skłodowska-Curié also was chastized for her experiments as well as her gender, yet she won the Nobel prize–twice! She was awarded the Nobel the first time in 1903 in Physics.  The second time occurred in 1911 in Chemistry. “58

Iowa has the tragedy of having such buffoons as Alons, Shaw, and Windschitl in the legislature, but they cannot fully tarnish the image of Iowa that also produced its onlyIowa Nobel Laureate being Norman Ernest Borlaug (Cresco, Iowa, March 25, 1914 – September 12, 2009) who won the coveted Peace Prize and left Iowa solve world hunger  “59: Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations]”. Norman Borlaug taught at Iowa State University in Ames, and was a real farmer and nothing like Alons or Shaw. Borlaug was never a hatemonger or bigot like Vander Plaats and Hurley and the trolls who sit in the Iowa chamber of representatives today and pretend they are farmers who fight for the people and protect the land when they deny equality to all and allow animal abuse and decry whistle blowers as did Annette Sweeney of the 44th District, or pollute the land and use valuable corn for fuel instead of food.
