Cook: Domestic partner theology

But don’t you understand?

God is gay.

G … a … y.

Yes, God is straight too, but you already know that. A straight-God-theology drove thousands of you to the voting booth Thursday, striking down the ordinance to give benefits to the domestic partner of city workers.

Said it was an matter of faith.

Said it was about upholding the Constitution.

Said it was about honoring traditional marriage.

But I don’t really believe you.

I think it’s about fear. Fear of difference. Fear of being around men who like men and women who like women. Fear of trusting in love over legalism.

“Do not fear,” Jesus said.

OK, I won’t, so I’ll say it again: Yes, I believe God is gay … and straight. And black, white, left-handed, deaf, blue-eyed, elderly and fluent in Cantonese.

In other words, God is everything.

In other words, everything is God.

To suggest gayness as present in the divine is not radical theology; rather, it’s quite basic. All major religions subscribe to a God-as-Creator model, which means that any and all parts of created life — from red wolves to the death cap mushrooms to peonies in bloom — originate from the divine.

I don’t mean this literally, that God takes the actual form of a great white shark or a Cherokee purple tomato. Think bigger: all parts of this beautiful created world dwell under the Very Big Tent that is God, whom St. John called “the alpha and omega.”

Including straight people.

Including gay people.

Yet for the oh-so-longest time, gay Chattanoogans have been subjected to a form of insulting perjury. From pulpits to editorials to petitions, the message has been this: You are less than us.

So you can’t marry. You can’t parent. You can’t have benefits. Because you’re not fully human.

It’s like a new version of the Three-Fifths Compromise — gay folks, worth only 60 percent of straight Chattanoogans.

“You are precious in my eyes and honored and I love you,” God says in Isaiah.

Do you think those words are only meant for straight people?

(The religious author Reynolds Price once suggested that Judas was gay, and betrayed Jesus after being spurned, when Jesus drew closer to Mary Magdalene than Judas.)

Thursday’s defeat of the domestic partner benefits ordinance is a hollow victory, the last gasp of a drowning man, the final stride of a tired horse.

Gay marriage will be legal in Tennessee by 2020, sooner if the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals rules on the side of gay couples who are now suing, claiming the right to marry is constitutional.

Look at Florida. Not that long ago, they voted to ban same-sex marriage.

Now?

“Public opinion has shifted so sharply that Florida’s savviest political players overwhelmingly see an end to that marriage ban looming,” writes Adam Smith in the Tampa Bay Times.

While writing this column, as if on cue, an email arrived with an online album of a friend’s wedding pictures from, well, nowhere close to here.

Bottles of red wine on blue tablecloths. Candles, cut hydrangeas, oysters on the half shell. There he is, smiling and handsome.

And there’s his husband.

They’re holding hands. Cutting up with family and friends. Saying their vows. Kissing.

“It was a great event,” he told me.

In John’s Gospel, Jesus goes to a wedding.

He’d be at this one, too.

Well said David. It was truly upsetting to go to sleep last night seeing the results pour in with an overwhelming majority voting against the ordinance. It was worse knowing that when I woke up, there wasn't a possibility for it to have swung in the favor of equality.

Hopefully one day (soon), we as a state and country can come to terms with the concept of freedom for all, not just the ones who look and act like us.

I didn't vote against the same-sex benefits--I voted against taxpayers paying for benefits for people without a legal paper showing that they have a legal, long-term commitment. As for God being Gay and people being afraid of gay people--you need to grow up, David. I wish I could buy you for what you're worth and sell you for what you think you're worth!

jalockwood said...

Where to start with the bad theology?

God cannot be gay because that would be an oxymoron of who God defines himself to be: 1 John 3:9 Whoever has been born of God does not sin, for His seed remains in him; and he cannot sin, because he has been born of God.

While I don't disagree (and really don't care) about your observations of society and trends in general, don't pick and choose Bible verses to support your argument/agenda. Anyone, including Satan, can know scripture and twist it to their agenda.

As a fellow columnist and newspaperman back in college, I'm disappointed with your complete lack of research on what the entire Word of God says, not just the cherry-picked verses that fit your agenda. Shame on you Mr. Cook.

In a city the size of Chattanooga, 14,000 votes cannot be called a "resounding" mandate. With a fundamentalist church on every corner (and two in between) it appears that most of Chattanooga's conservative christians failed to vote. At best, this was a puny victory for Mark West & Co.

Stewwie said...

David,

How many times do you libs need to be reminded that this was not a gay/straight issue...it was a married/unmarried issue. And secondarily (or primarily to some), it was a money issue. Chattanoogans overwhelmingly said last night that they don't want their hard-earned tax money supporting sexually immoral lifestyles.

And just so you know, God is not gay. Lol. Do you ever read more than just the red letters in the Bible, David? If you did, you would know that Jesus is on every page. Instead, you have become ignorant to the truth of the Bible and about God. You may call yourself a Christian, but you sound like nothing more than a false teacher.

zula, taxpayers end up paying much more each and every time an uninsured person requires medical attention and doesn't have insurance and can't pay for treatment. Be it gay couples living together in long term relationships or heterosexual couples doing the same, the insured ends up paying in higher premium cost as hospitals end up charging more for services when medical treatment is needed and there's no health insurance coverage. The city's move would have actually saved taxpayers money in the short and long term.

Sometimes when you think you've won, too late you realize your lost is greater

The bible has been used to justify polygamy, murder, child abuse, rape, war, slavery, segregation, oppression of women and genocide. You know, with actual book and verse. All cherrypicked.

I'm sure, Ki, that this was all about the money. Christians would never bully and Tammy Faye taught them to be judicious about money matters.

Seriously, Ki? It's not the city of Chattanooga's responsibility to ensure that unmarried folks have health insurance. It's each individual's responsibility. So if there are certain folks who (now illegally) choose to go without health insurance which leads to higher premium costs for insured folks, blame the freeloaders, not the voters who shot down the ordinance last night.

To "Stewwie": I find it interesting to hear Republican lawmakers say that everybody has health insurance, just go to the ER when you're sick. Yet, there appear to be many Republicans (as I am fairly confident you are, given the empathy deficit on parade) who are eager to hang the term "freeloader" on anyone who would take the advice of congressional Republicans.

I always try to get the Liberal to speak or write because they will hang themselves every time.

It is sad that this comment thread has degraded to insults and name calling. We are talking about people's lives here and trying to pay the bills at the end of the month. I'm a non-Christian gay man who used to work in the baptist church. I have lived on both sides of the fence. It doesn't matter if you condone others for their lack of belief in Christianity or not. Christianity has no more legitimacy than atheism or Buddhism and Chattanooga is hurting its population by mandating laws based upon people's fear and ignorance. These are humans beings. Not red or blue or gay or straight. It is a travesty what happened yesterday. The people who are in committed domestic partnerships deserve health care for their spouses just as much as married people.

TWOBIT, appropriate name, YOU picked it. You "walked" on both sides, demonstrating your confusion. Speaking about being red,green, straight or gay, etc., ad nauseum. Who cares about that? It is YOUR BEHAVIOR that normal people find offensive. And yes, twobit, there is normal. There are 5 simple tests you can apply to see the difference between normal and abnormal. They are (1)duration,(2)intensity,(3)the statistical,(4)the cultural, and (5) the pathological. Research that until you know what you are doing, apply it to your case, and learn something right.

The bible says all sorts of things that people twist to their own agendas. Take obesity for example. The bible says this:

Proverbs 23:20-21 warns us, “Do not join those who drink too much wine or gorge themselves on meat, for drunkards and gluttons become poor, and drowsiness clothes them in rags.” Proverbs 28:7 declares, “He who keeps the law is a discerning son, but a companion of gluttons disgraces his father.” Proverbs 23:2 proclaims, “Put a knife to your throat if you are given to gluttony.”

Does this mean we should discriminate against obese individuals and not provide them the same rights as others? Looks like every obese person should put a knife to their throat because hey that's what the bible says to do right? Of course not but that's what you demand for the gay and lesbian community. You claim "The bible said it so we must obey". But this whole gluttony thing yeah they didn't really mean that part of the bible so its ok for me.

"God is gay?!" In the buckle of the Bible Belt, David Cook actually said "God is gay?" Cool. Oh, I know, I know...you sort of tempered it by adding that God is "everything," but of course most of these upright, uptight Christian folk here are gonna want your head for your brazen blasphemy of the gay part. You'll be lucky to keep your job after that bit of journalistic bravado, Mr. Cook.

Actually, for those who want to believe in an invisible sky daddy, God is whatever they want him to be. It's a joke to think that we are created in (his) image. God has always been molded into whatever image his self-righteous, hate-filled, bigoted, overly zealous followers want him to be. Isn't it funny how their God always seems to be the sort of deity who justifies their hatred and their narrow-minded view of the world and the cosmos?

Oinick said...

Hey, Dave. Guess what? You and your ilk, including the liberal mayor of Chattanooga, LOST. God-fearing people stood up against immorality. Or people opposed to paying for undeserved benefits in a city where so much needs fixing instead voted for fiscal restraint.

Rather than paying for gays and non-married folks to have an easier life, let's fix our horrible streets, let's stop the gang violence, and let's stop this mayor's agenda.

Now I'm sure y'all will lawyer up. It's interesting that Obama has tapped Berke's man as our new federal judge. Coincidence? Doubt it. This is what liberals do: push for "acceptance and tolerance," cry discrimination when you lose a legitimate vote, and then turn to the courts hoping to override the people. Maybe you and Berke can call out your SEIU thugs from city government and your UAW cronies from Volkswagen to help you. I recall you supported both of these unions against Chattanooga citizens as well. Opposing democracy is what liberals do when they don't get their way.

Dave, you seem to find so much wrong with Chattanooga. It's sad, amd I pity you. Why do you stay here? Even when you taught at GPS, you ranted against Bush and conservatism I remember the anti-American posters and clippings from left-leaning sources displayed in your classroom. If you're as smart as you think you are, certainly you can get a job in a liberal utopia like New York or Berkely or Chicago. I encourage to dedicate your talents there.

In the meantime, the rest of us knuckle-dragging conservatives and Christians will oppose the liberal agenda you're pushing.

One last thing: you cannot say that God is gay without backing it up. Where is that written in the Bible, Quran, or Talmud? Name one - just one - mainstream religion that supports that. I rather think you have tried to write your own theology. You've blasphemed. That doesn't look good in God's eyes. I know you don't really believe the Bible and choose to interpret it to meet your needs, but if I were you I'd look up the eternal penalty for blasphemy.

I'm happy to say I don't live in Chris Anderson's district or in any of those whose commissioners voted for the proposal originally, but, along with thousands of other Chattanoogans, we will remember at election time. I'm looking forward to contributing to their opponents and working to elect them instead.

Just sayin'. Actions and elections have consequences.

It seems the people have spoken. I do not believe it is about fear. It is even against biology. We as humans need the functions of both male and female to have a child. Quote scripture, quote science books, whatever, it's true. Just becuase someone proclaims they are gay, doesn't mean everyone should change and make it OK. Frankly, I'm disgusted with the number of TV shows that, for whatever reason, have to inject some sort of homosexual content to make it appear that they aren't anti-gay. I have the feeling that the same goes for this article, just have to print something. The gay community can go about their lives, but I see no reason in waiving it in everyone's face. So this got voted down. And it wasn't even close. Move on.

stewwie babbee, in cases of divorce settlements or a child born out of wedlock employers, even the city givernment, can already be forced to cover medical insurance for a child, children or ex spouse when the courts order it. In cases of the non-custodial parent, he/she has the right to cover a child through his/her employer even without a court order for a child born out of wedlock. Your premise is very flawed when one takes into account a more complete picture.

August 8, 2014 at 1:53 p.m.

When anyone can demonstrate why gays don't deserve equal protection under law, I'll listen. When anyone can demonstrate how any relationship between two consenting adults is either bad for society or any of our business I'll listen. People can couch this as an economic issue, but that's a smokescreen. Gays make up a tiny percent of the population. If you are concerned about cost, go after the families that have more kids than they can afford, or people who smoke, overeat, or participate in dangerous sports. They will cost more than paying for domestic partners.

ikeithlu, conservy and his crew remind me of a coworkers from many years ago overheard berating and badgering another co-worker who was living with a boyfriend without being legally married to him. This female co-worker went on and on talking about the female to her face about how wrong she was and that she was sinning. You could see this co-worker striking smaller and smaller with the assaults being heaped in her. She was basically a shy / quiet type who rarely spoke up for herself.

Well, like I say, the attacker kept going on and on about sin and god's punishment until another co-worker got fed up and jumped in the conversation to remind thus badgering co'worker of all the times she came to work bragging about how she'd gotten so drunk out partying over the weekends and had sex with any guy that came along, and how she'd basically used abortion as a contraceptive if she happened to get knocked-up while out partying like it was 1999 or something. Yet, there she was telling this other co-worker how she needed to go to church like she, the badgerer, did every Sunday. It was a Kodak moment to see the light bulb come on in her face and her mouth hit the floor when this other co-worker broke it all down to her. Just like conservy and gang, she failed to see the mote in her own eye until someone pointed it out to her.

I love to see the fundies with their undies in a wad.

BTW...Jesus was probably gay, too. Think about it - he was always in the company of men, he spurned women, and he liked having his feet bathed in expensive oil (how gay is that!?).
