The same people who voted for and supported George W. Bush think America is going to hell in a handbasket. Evidently killing hundreds of thousands of Iraqi people is not enough to quell the fear in their compassionate hearts. So too, the torture, rape, and murder of innocent civilians in the Middle East does little to raise their sense of America being the last bastion of God's love. So it goes.
Day in, day out. We need God in our schools. We need the 10 Commandments in every courtroom. We need the Confederate flag flying freely from every ...... Well, maybe not that one. But all those Christian fundamentalists surely feel as though their God has somehow abandoned them. And they want him back. Oh, and they are so kind, considerate and compassionate that they also want you to want him back, too.
Not your namby-pamby Jesus. Not him. He went around spreading goodwill towards his fellow men and women. Definitely not Allah. No, they mean that kick-ass God of the old testament who rained fire and brimstone down on all the slackers, sinners and heathen non-believers. Yeah, that God!
And it is so handy to have the modern day prophets, Glen Beck, Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity. Why, I bet you thought, like I did, that maybe all the prophets died off back in the days of Moses, Abraham, John the Baptist, and Judas Iscariot. Oops! on that last one. Nope, they have been resurrected. But wait, isn't reincarnation a belief of those Muslims. Or is it the Egyptians? Oh I give up. All this religious fervor stuff leaves me with a headache and a hunger for biscuits and gravy.
Stay tuned. I'm just getting warmed up.
