America’s Christian problem
We’re mostly Protestant anyway; never did trust the wops.
Look at the Kennedys.
But raping children isn’t limited to the Catholics. In fact, the problem isn’t even limited to raping children. Or raping boys. Or assaulting children.
Note that no one is accusing Obama of being a dominionist.
See? Over the course of the weekend, somewhere between 80,000 and 300,000 people got together in D.C. and declared that I was the cause of all their problems. People “turning away from God” blah-blah-blah.
I mean, here I am, smearing poor Christians. I made those guys impregnate children and beat their wives and shit. I’m only doing this because I hate God and America. Except that I’ve never actually read anything by Richard Dawson. But apparently they still feel the need to take America back.
In short? The same exclusionary bullshit we heard from the moral majority back in the 80s.
And let’s not pretend this has anything to do with religion; this has to do with stupidity as a source of unhappiness. How many times has the religious right hooked up with the GOP only to be blown off in favor of big oil after the election?
I don’t assign any particular significance to the current claims of “outrage” because I already know that it’s completely unsolvable. Self-created, self-perpetuated, arising inside an impenetrable bubble. I play absolutely no part in it outside the fact that I don’t exist within that vacuum myself, and even if I could be persuaded or forced to either conform or go away, it would have absolutely no impact on the problem. If I conveniently ceased to exist, blame would simply be shifted to someone else.
Bottom line: these days, when somebody says they’re “Christian”, I don’t assume it means anything good OR anything bad. It’s ceased to mean anything at all.
I’ll be damned if a one of them is going to tell me I had anything to do with it, however. They did it to themselves.
