This is Conservative Christian Logic in a Nutshell

When Minnesota Andy McClure shared a post on Facebook about how conservative Christians react to various hot-button issues, it quickly went viral… before it was removed from the site for “not meeting community standards.” (Which is probably a euphemism for “a bunch of Christians complained so the algorithm removed it.”)So he drew it up XKCD-style instead.

So far, that version has remained online. And let’s hope it stays because it shows how illogical conservatives can be. And it didn’t even mention things like gun control, climate change, and LGBT rights. Throw in those and this cycle of faith-based bullshit gets even longer.

For Certain Christians, Lying for Jesus is Justified in the Abortion Wars

Leviticus 19:11 makes clear: "Ye shall not steal, neither deal falsely, neither lie one to another."There's quite a bit of the Bible that conservative Christian activists tend to leave out, but Biblical prohibitions against lying are routinely given short shrift by those intent on seeing God's will done on Earth. We don't have to look far for examples of it -- from Christians arguing that LGBT people are predators to politicians pretending that being gay is a choice, these lies are common.The Washington Post has a good look at another popular outlet for faith-based lying: the abortion debate, and the notoriously deceptive idea of "crisis pregnancy centers."
