Riddle me this...

How can someone who hates poor people, wants to cut the minimum wage, and who wants to give wealthy people more tax cuts claim she knows what her god is thinking when he 'sends' natural disasters? If Michele Bachmann really truly believes that her Bible contains the absolute unvarnished word of her god, then did she miss the part about rich people not getting into heaven? Jesus said that it will be easier for a camel to fit through the eye of a needle than it will be for a rich person to enter into the kingdom of heaven. So if she missed an important passage like that, how can she claim that the hurricane and the earthquake her god 'sent' is an anti spending message?

I used to be a believer in the cult of Christianity. I read their Bible. I went to church. I went to one of the most conservative, both politically and religiously, colleges in the USA, where I had to take four classes in Bible and religion. I was surrounded by 'Christians.' So I'm very familiar with the teaching of Jesus and the wishes and desires of his deranged father. So if anything, the message the god of the Christians is sending with the hurricane and the earthquake is that the Gospels are being perverted by capitalism. Jesus commanded us to feed, clothe, and love the poor. He didn't command us to cut taxes on the rich. He'd be pretty pissed about income inequality, not that corporations are being regulated too much. Their god is mad at them for not giving all of the citizens of this country medical and dental coverage, he's not mad that we don't have enough weapons to kill everyone on the face of the earth.

Jesus also said, and I'm paraphrasing here, "What ever you did to the poor, you did to me." And we all know what people like Michele Bachmann and her pals in the Christian Taliban have been doing to the poor since 1980. Yeah, my educated guess is that Jesus and his pop are pissed at the ass reaming the Republicans and Corporate Conserva-Dems have handing out since the days of St. Ronnie Reagan and they're finally doing something about it.

She is terrifying. At this point I'd be willing to call a Perry/Bachmann or Perry/Palin ticket for 2012, and all of those folks are going to find a heap of trouble just in their ass-nutty religious affiliations, nevermind how they want Murica to bend over and take it dry for the rich.

Well, Dr. Monkey, if she's been able to convince herself that her husband isn't queer, than believing in a evil nasty Jesus would be kinda easy, don't you think?
