  •  I think you nailed it! Their God is failing (5+ / 0-)

    on all the fronts that matter to them.  Black folks can not only vote, they can run for office and win.  Women can have sex when they choose, and rape is being prosecuted.  Pedophiles are punished and vilified.  Wife beaters face arrest and their wives can escape.  Non-Christians ate allowed to worship, even build legitimate churches.  Gays can live freely in their neighborhoods, and love who they choose, even get MARRIED some places.  And the world goes on, there's no earthquakes targeting liberal cities, no floods drowning only the heretics and pagans, no rain of fire destroying San Francisco or Hollywood.  

    Their God is an angry old man, as impotent as they are.

    I'm not looking for a love that will lift me up and carry me away. A love that will stroll alongside and make a few amusing comments will suffice.

      as revealed by Its prophet Reagan, blessings and peace be upon him.

      Christianity comes second to their nebulous neo-fascist concept of "Conservatism". Any time Christian doctrine can be employed in their evil unholy quest, they'll gladly wrap themselves around the cross. But if it doesn't? They'll kick Jesus out the side of a moving car.

      This isn't just angry rhetoric I'm spittin, man. These people that want to excise "LIBERAL BIAS" from the Bible itself, and rewrite it as a "fully conservative translation".

      Its sick. I feel like its just gonna keep festering until 100 years from now, this political death cult will be its own distinct, wholly separate branch of intrinsically politicized Christianity with its own "bible" where Jesus extols the virtues of war and parrots Ayn Rand's thoughts on Altruism.

      Compare to how Hitler tolerated Christianity for political purposes, but he eventually wanted to phase it out and replace it with this Odinist flavored state religion centered around worship of The Führer.

        I recall during the waning years of the Cheney administration hearing tapes of white house schmucks talking about how they used the religious right as unwitting pawns to get the vote out.

        Those at the top know, and as long as those at the bottom are fed the proper line of BS, it will continue.

        I am not religious, and did NOT say I enjoyed sects.

    •  No, their god is quite powerful. (0+ / 0-)

      Mammon, the same yesterday, today and forever.

      Atlas shrugged. Jesus wept.
