Real Reason They Don't Want Gays in Military (or, Is God Mad at Republicans?)
Seems that god is really pissed at the republicans. Actually, god's mad at the repubs for that whole Reich-wing conservative "christian" thing.
Here's proof. All those wild-eyed RWC's were told (and did as they were ordered) to pray for "hurricane force winds and rains of biblical proportions out of the so-called "christian" right wing Focus on the Family and other tax free pulpits. [They wanted God to "rain on" Obama's victory-celebration.] So millions of these sheeple did just that-- prayed and prayed and prayed like the buncha friggin idiots they are, that they actually believe THAT is what prayer is for?
And ya know what? It turned out to be just the most beautiful night in Denver. Couldn't have been better for a giant outdoor party (when Obama gave his acceptance speech in front of over 80,000 people at Mile High Stadium). I guess it was just simply not god's will to cause that rain and wind, to NOT answer the pleadings of the millions. So much for the power of THEIR prayer, of THAT type of cloaked-in-hate prayer, that is!
Then, a few months later in California, all those good christians and especially Mormons (who, like Catholics, are NOT real christians as we all know) according to the BOAC born-again variety of christians (only THEY are the real chosen ones.) Anyway, they (BOAC) all wanted everyone to vote YES on Prop 8 in California to ban gay marriage. And, sure enough, Prop 8 did fail, and now the christians and Mormons are all happy.
But guess what? God is pissed AGAIN. How can ya tell? Well, what about all those fires immediately after Prop 8? The defeat of gay marriage (a yes vote defeated) has shaken California. Indeed, if Prop 8 had lost and allowed gay marriage, then those fires would have been called (by christians) the judgment of god; after all, vengence is mine, sayeth the lord-- of dance or the lord of the rings or whatever. Yes, the televised preachers would be railing against the goddless left coast and all those queer liberal faggots and lezzies and homos and sinners. Yes, Sarah Palin's "Real America" could feel justified in its discrimination and justified by all those fires and acts of "gawd"!
But wait! If California has done what they say is god's will, then why is California being punished with these fires? Next will be rains and mudslides and all that. Hmmmm. I guess god got it wrong again. Maybe, just maybe, "Gawd" is NOT a republican as we've been led to believe.
Or maybe, just maybe, this god of theirs simply does not give a care for their particular brand of hate! Maybe, just maybe (and back to the original point) this old-time choir is not what the GOP needs!
As republicans sort out the reasons for their defeat earlier this month, they will likely overlook or dismiss the gorilla in the pulpit.
Three little letters, great big problem: G O D. (I'm bathing in holy water as I type this).
To be specific, the evangelical, rightwing branch of the GOP is what ails the erstwhile conservative party and will continue to afflict and marginalize its constituents if reckoning doesn't cometh soon, or is it soon cometh?
Simply put: Armband religion is killing the republican party. And the truth, as long as we're helping to set them free, is that if one were to eavesdrop on the private conversations among the party intelligentsia, one would hear precisely that. Their choir has become absurdly off-key, and many republicans know it, but they need those votes! What to do?!
So it has been for the Grand Old Party (more emphasis now on Old and less on Party) since the 1980's or so. It has become beholden to a nutty element that they used to relegate to wooden crates on street corners. Yep, the GOP has surrendered its higher ground (moral authority?) to its lowest brows (Palins?) and in so doing alienated its base, including other people of faith and regular folks who prefer a more private
approach to worship. And what's so great is how defensive religious conservatives become at any suggestion that they've had anything to do with the GOP's erosion! Oh well, it just keeps getting better, doesn't it?
Whoops, my time is up, gotta run, gotta go pray for rain.
