Oh, there aren't any LW Fundamentalist preachers?  No wonder this isn't breaking news.

I was all set to get into arguments about how it's really uncivil to call Paul Ryan the Antichrist just because he's.... um ....anti Christian?

Or to eviscerate those who think it's really stupid to think there's a God who sends weather events to, for instance,  New Orleans to punish those infidels for being  Poor?  No, immoral, immoral is better.  If by immoral you mean black, poor, and unwilling to punish teh gayz.  Or terrorists to NYC because we've done something.  It was 11 years ago, cut me a break!  Was it gayz or welfare queens or not praying in schools?  Too disinterested to bother with Google.

Seriously, we need to get out there and recruit us some Speakers For God.  We're running a deep deficit here in the religious wars, and it makes us look atheistic.  Or open-minded, which is probably the same thing and definitely evil.

Fuckitall, I'm a Left Wing Preacher's kid, I'll go there!

Let's see.  Okay, it was a vision in the middle of the night.  Well it might have been a holy-shit-there's-a-lot-of-garlic-in-this-soup sort of nightmare, but let's go with vision.

So in my vision the clouds parted (it must have been daytime) and a Bright Light shown through and a loud voice said unto me "I sent the nuns on the bus.  I even goaded a couple of Bishops out of their torpor.  What is it about "A budget that is the opposite of Christian teachings" is too complicated for you people?"

And then He (very deep Charlton Heston type voice, must have had a gender) spake, saying "I will send a perfectly predictable weather event to smite those who hear but cannot process critical thought so that they shall know that I am God."

TWEET THIS!  Make it go viral.  

No don't, I'm 62 and "go viral" makes me think of stomach flu and high fevers and stuff.

Speaking of aging and Intelligent Design, what's the deal with my eyebrows are invisible now that they're turning gray but my nostril hairs have enough melanin to morph from blonde to black?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
