It didn't long, did it?
I knew Palin and Beck were going to piss me off, and I wasn't wrong. Does this mean I have the gift of prophecy? Am I wrong in not believing in God? Maybe God speaks to me directly through thoughts, feelings, and maybe God is what makes my cat's meow?
Check this out:
Yes, lets get the Mormon and the woman who believes in witchcraft and demons to discuss how important religion is to American society.
Where would we be without religion? Would we care at all about each other? Would killing a neighbor over a small dispute be commonplace? Would people not call 911 when someone needs help? Wait... those things already happen... don't they?
Where is this God they say watches over us?
Did he help the people in the city of New Orleans during hurricane Katrina?
Did he help people avoid the world trade centers on September 11th?
Does he help the millions of abused and starving children all over the world? If he does, how? Because the way I see it... it's *people* who are helping the starving children.
Something I learned the other day which I found fascinating was that Seth Macfarlane, the hottie, the comedic genius behind the Family Guy, the dreamboat (and an outspoken atheist) had a ticket for one of those ill-fated planes on September 11, 2001. Did I mention how good looking he was? I should mention that... ;)
If God was looking out for people on September 11th, why did he help someone who was an outspoken atheist? Why didn't God save someone with a husband, a wife, a family? Instead he saves the millionaire who is part of the "Hollywood Elite?" What was God thinking?
Was it Satan?
Yes, that must be it.
Seth Macfarlane, my future husband and father of my children (I can dream) must have made a pact with Satan himself! This led him to create a series of hit television shows, become wealthy beyond his imagination, and miss his flight on 9/11! Does Pat Robertson know about this guy? Maybe Seth Macfarlane is the cause of the earthquake in Haiti?!?!
But, where was God?
Where is this loving creator when there is so much pain and suffering going on throughout the world?
Why doesn't he help?
He just chooses not to? How do you get to be one of the lucky people God helps? Do you have to just be lucky? Be in the right place at the right time?
Palin says she prays to God for guidance, grace and strength. I wonder if she has tried praying to a can of Spam? I bet she would get the same results.
She goes on to say that she would never tell someone else how to live.
Really Sarah? Really? You sure about that? How about this little gem?
Call me crazy, Sarah... I call you crazy all the time, but it seems to me that you just told reporters that marriage should be between a man and a woman only. Hmmm... that doesn't constitute as telling someone else how to live? Is the sky bubble gum pink in your little world, too?
She wants to see more American's "Give It A Try."
Yes, what we need is more religious fundamentalism brainwashing in our lives. More irrational fears, more hypocritical assholes telling people that they are sinning and going to burn in Hell if they don't do exactly what they tell them to do.
Yeah, we need more of that.
She goes on to say that she wants more of us to seek out God like our founding fathers did. They way they sought out God to help with creating the documents that let America become the strong country it is today.
I will leave you with this video that shows how crazy fundamentalists can be in regards to this country...
