Fundamentalist Looney Bird

If you want to understand why southern and right-wing Christianity is so hateful, bigoted, and ignorant this is a good place to do some basic research.
Monroe's sermons are based upon a belief in an infallible and inerrant Bible. No credible scholar of any stripe believes that.
Any thinking person who has tried to make coherent sense of all the redactions, overlaps, errors, inconsistencies, and obvious bits of propaganda put there to justify genocide and tyranny on behalf of ancient Israel and its rulers knows better.
How anyone who calls himself a doctor of anything can ignore this and still take himself seriously is beyond me. All he manages to do is perpetuate the prejudices and hatreds of the ancient world into the present one.
Not that the Bible doesn’t have rare glimmers of concern and hope, namely in the sayings of Jesus and the latter part of Isaiah, but this guy seems to ignore those to spend most of his time expounding upon the words of the ancient bigots who support his equally bigoted and blighted world view.
What Dr. Monroe and others manage to miss is that Jesus spent most of his time in the Gospels arguing with and condemning people very much like right-wing Christians who endeavored to use scripture as a proof text to justify stoning people to death. The reason for this is those people saw the ancient texts – namely the Torah – in much the same way: infallible and inerrant. This is the problem, as the Torah (the first five books of the OT) itself justifies mass murder, war-mongering, and the killing of anyone who doesn’t comply with a somewhat arcane list of six-hundred and thirteen commandments.
Jesus presented a prophetic response to the absurdities, hatreds, and inherent evils of ancient Israel, which for the most part ignored him and was destroyed because they acted upon a longing for a Davidic king to wage “holy" war against the Romans. (Didn’t turn out well for them.)
Dr. Monroe and his flock are every bit as oblivious.
