Good God


Fox "news" and the rest of the RWS™ like to count the number of times God was mentioned at the two recent conventions. Guess who wins?

Which means, what, exactly?

I find it really interesting that the party of god is the one that flatly rejects Jesus' admonitions to care for the sick, feed the hungry, help those in need. And the party they claim is godless is the one which not only acknowledges those ideals, but acts on them; maintains them as the most central tenets of its existence. The more they do the opposite of what Christianity preaches, the more Republicans wrap themselves in god. It's almost as if, as they vacate all concern for those in need, they figure if they said goddy stuff enough, their voters won't notice. We're for god and so are you, they say. That's all you need to know. So vote for us and shut up.

Isn't that an insult both to god and their intended voters? Do they figure neither will notice what's going on?

The frequency with which today's Republicans mention god is inversely related to the number of ways, over time, that they ignore his teachings.

Funny thing, ain't it?

[Added: Surprise, surprise: Mitt Romney chimes in like the pandering, bereft, colloquial-name-for-the-male-generative-organ he is. Words fail.] (Okay, well, "asshole" does come to mind.)

At least the RepubicKKKlans didn't boo God/mention of the capital of Israel, and let me know when Rominey talks about his Muslim Faith...
THAT BEING SAID...
and this is from a guy who got kicked out of "Passion of the Christ" for whistling at Mary Magdeline, Seriously, when I show up at Sin-O-gog, people move away from me...
Not BO, Lightning Bolts, they're(!)afraid of Lightning Bolts...
But when I was 10 or 11, at Sunday School(I went to a Baptist Church AND Sin-O-Gog) and I asked why Jehovah/Jesus hadn't taken out Yasser Arafat/Mao/Ted Kennedy and I was about to go over to the dark side(Catholocism)...

"You might not believe in God Frankie, but God believes in Frankie"
"He Does???" I answered...
"WHAT A CHUMP!!!"

They were booing the process, Frankie. But the point remains.

That was a funny one, Frank. Sometimes I wonder why Sid keeps your posts alive, but then you come up with one that is a keeper....
