Church Makes Lesbian a Bishop… Then She Makes Sick Jesus Statement

She also thinks that Jesus Christ was a bigot — or used to be.

You can’t make this stuff up. Unless you’re her. Then you’re totally making this stuff up.

Here’s what Oliveto told the Mountain Sky area (Colorado, Wyoming, Montana, Utah and a small portion of Idaho, according to the United Methodist Church website) on August 19 in a weekly “message:”

“If Jesus can change, if he can give up his bigotries and prejudices, if he can realize that he had made his life too small, and if, in this realization, he grew closer to others and closer to God, than so can we.”

You heard it here, folks. Jesus was just a bigot who learned how to do better. Let’s look at the entirety of her ramblings:

Not only is Jesus a bigot that had to learn how to be inclusive and a leftist, she claims, but also — people need to stop making an idol out of him.

“The wonderful counselor, mighty God, everlasting one, prince of peace, was as human as you and me. Like you and me, he didn’t have his life figured out. He was still growing, maturing, putting the pieces together about who he was and what he was supposed to do. We might think of him as the Rock of Ages, but he was more like a hunk of clay, forming and reforming himself in relation to God.”

In case anyone was concerned that she might be right about either of these claims, allow me to point you to 2 Corinthians 5:21: “For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.”

Add on to that, John 10:30: “I and the Father are one.”

Isn’t the jolt of English Standard Version after that gross, incorrect summarizing refreshing? It’s also probably worth mentioning that Oliveto’s paraphrase of Matthew 15:21-28 is horrendously off the mark. You can read what it actually says here. It’s a beautiful story that was meant to show the world that Christ’s love is so voluminous that it goes beyond just saving Israelites, but is for all who believe in him.

Her message is 100 percent against Christian teaching. Jesus was perfect and he most certainly wasn’t a “bigot.” Moreover, you can’t make an “false idol” out of Jesus because he is God and thus the only one worthy of worship.

However, based on her statements, it would appear that Oliveto is more than happy to make an idol out of liberal theology, even to the point where progressiveness is the goal which the poor, bigoted Jesus Christ must struggle toward.

Talk about being deceived.

Deep State Treason:  Former State Dept. Official Under Trump Tells China To Quit Negotiating Until Trump Is Removed In 2020

Deep state traitors no longer hide their deep hatred for the American people —

Mrs. Susan Thornton, the former acting assistant secretary of state in the Trump administration, told her Beijing audience to stop negotiating until President Trump is removed from office in 2020.

Until July 2018, she was Acting Assistant Secretary for East Asian and Pacific Affairs at the Department of State and led East Asia policy making amid crises with North Korea, escalating trade tensions with China, and a fast-changing international environment.

The Conservative Treehouse and The South China Morning News reported:

A former official in the Trump administration has said that China can weather the storm brought by the trade war with the United States but might have to “keep steady, keep their heads down and wait” for change in the White House.

Susan Thornton, former acting assistant secretary of state to US President Donald Trump, told a gathering in Shanghai on Wednesday that she hoped a trade deal between the US and China could be concluded by next month.

But the reality was that it would “take a while” for China and the US to talk about cooperation again, Thornton, who in 20 years rose to become the US State Department’s chief negotiator for East Asia and Pacific affairs, told the South China Morning Post.

“I want to be optimistic,” said Thornton, whose 27-year career in Washington ended in July. “I tell all our foreign counterparts they should keep steady, keep their heads down and wait. [They should] try to not let anything change dramatically.”

“If this sceptical attitude towards talking diplomacy continues in this administration, you might have to wait till another administration,” Thornton said at an event held by National Committee of US-China relations and Shanghai’s American Chamber.
