Herman Cain: Now God Wants Him To Be President…

 image   …. so now I have to go and find me a very quiet location in order to have a chat with God about this development, as God seems to be suffering from a bout of confusion over which Republican should be in the White House. I am believing that God will tell me that He is just having some innocent fun with all of those Christian Conservative fakes, and that He  has not told any one of them that they would win.. Maybe God is hoping that these people will see the errors of their ways and repent? Sorry God, but that is not going to happen because they would have to denounce their corporate masters in order to escape from the dark side, which isn’t in their best interest.

   So let’s count all of the butt-wipes from the GOP who God has called to run for the White House.  Are you ready for this? Are you sure?

    Michele Bachmann, Newt Gingrich, Rick Santorum, Herman Cain, Rick Perry. It should be noted that Perry did not speak directly with God, his wife got that message instead. I think that Perry’s cellphone battery had died earlier that morning so God couldn’t get through to him with his orders.

   So Herman Cain, as most Republicans have done, has decided to take the low road just to get the votes from the conservative Republicans, mostly inhabiting the South.

In a speech Saturday to a national meeting of young Republicans, Cain said the Lord persuaded him after much prayer.

"That's when I prayed and prayed and prayed. I'm a man of faith — I had to do a lot of praying for this one, more praying than I've ever done before in my life," Cain said. "And when I finally realized that it was God saying that this is what I needed to do, I was like Moses. 'You've got the wrong man, Lord. Are you sure?'"

Cain spoke in advance of a Republican debate Saturday in South Carolina focused on foreign policy.

  We have a conflict, Mr. Cain. God told you to run for President, and at the same time He told me not to vote for you or any other “ conservative Christian,” so which one of us is hearing from the wrong God?

    As a Christian ( not nearly perfect ) who tries to do the right thing when other people are in need of help, I find Mr. Cain and his ilk insulting to the faith and to the slow-minded followers who will believe his line of crap. These Christians stand for nothing in which God or His son, Jesus Christ, would condone. Jesus was most certainly no kind of conservative, and he most surely did not get along with most of the rich. He absolutely did not have any of the ideas that the Republican Party lives by, and he would be overturning their tables of filthy lucre as he did with the moneychangers back in the day. Of course, the Republicans are not the only ones partaking in this kind of crap. The Democrats are guilty also, only to a somewhat lesser degree.

   Keep your fraudulent religious ideas out of the political arena as our founding fathers intended. People like Cain and Perry are the reason why government and religion should be on different wavelengths.

   So, what do I find so wrong with the Conservative Christian Republican/Tea Party? An op-ed piece by past lobbyist for the  National Association of Evangelicals ( Richard Cizik ) in Friday’s Washington Post covers a bit of the problem.

The “compassionate conservatism” espoused by President George W. Bush and many prominent evangelical leaders has been supplanted by a Tea Party ideology that bears more resemblance to the anti-Christian philosophy of Ayn Rand than it does to the Gospel.

Whether the Christian duty to love our neighbors is compatible with a political movement that embraces radical individualism and rejects the ethic of collective responsibility is a central question as the GOP attempts to cement the Tea Party and the religious right into a cohesive base. Tea Party activists and Republican leaders have consistently targeted for cutbacks vital government programs that protect the poor, the elderly, children and other vulnerable Americans. Yet calls for shared sacrifice and proposals to modestly raise taxes on the wealthiest Americans in order to fund investments and protections that promote the common good are derided as “class warfare.” This is what passes for family values?

Tony Perkins' Family Research Council has made the suggestion that "the priorities of corporations and the GOP fit snugly with the teachings of Jesus."  Which Bible do these clown read from?

   An almost worse problem is the fact that the majority of churches on this planet have become nothing but big-business enterprises who use fear tactics on their congregations in order to suck their money out of their wallets and purses.

   Sad for a Christian to say this, but, I’d rather see our government run by Atheist instead of these frauds who pass themselves off as something which they are not. The Atheist that I know adhere more to the biblical teachings of Jesus than most Christians do, especially those Conservative ones. An Atheist House, Senate, and President could do no worse than the current crop of assholes in Washington, D.C., and may do even better. At least most believe in caring for their fellow man, rich and poor alike.

   As a side-note it should be noted that at the last Republican debate, a few of the Christians in the group stated that the United States should maybe plan on attacking Iran in order to stop the country from producing a nuclear weapon. Republicans have been playing the fear card forever, and it is worth noting that these Christians always seem to want to start a war somewhere.

    Do we really want another Republican sitting in the White House for even 4 years?
