    Bush Redux - Today the mizzez Perry was on the trail whining about how mean everyone is being to little Ricky. Not only that, she revealed that God told her Rick should run for President. God must not like the US. Bush claimed to be God's annointed and we know how that all turned out!

    Didn't Bachmann claim her campaign was divinely inspired, too? I wish He'd make His mind up already!

    Yes, she did. I think I am going to their Facebook pages and suggesting that they team up and run as a team. Since she believes the woman is supposed to submit to the man there should be no trouble in deciding who will head up the ticket.

    I used to piss off Bush's devotees by telling them we were led to believe that God would grant favor to our country if Bush was elected. If the ensuing results were a sign of God's favor I'm not so sure I want it. It is similar to the claim that the Jews are God's favorite race.

    I've said many times that I simply don't believe in a "Santa Claus" deity. I've never claimed to truly know the nature of existence, but I'm quite sure that Bronze Age middle-eastern storm/sky gods don't figure in the picture.

    Plus I'll say that it's a shitty creator who chooses favorites :rolleyes:

    Whenever I hear someone claim "God told me..." I hear my mother's voice say, "That is no excuse!" Have to admit she made me prejudiced against people who say "God told me...."

    Why isn't this man in a prison cell serving a sentence for murder?

    I guess not even God is satisfied with Mitt Romney and so is always on the lookout for someone else.

    How long do you have to live in Texas before God speaks to you?

    Post of the day, and it's till so early yet (at least here in Florida).

    Yeah: it seems the only thing Republicans crave more than anyone-but-Romney is anybody-but-Obama: good luck with that, guys :wink:

    Mormons believe the only person who can talk to god and receive his revelations is the current Profit (err . . . Prophet) du jour. Anyone else claiming to hear god speak to them is quickly put on anti psychotics. Personally, I've always felt the Prophet should be forced to take the same medication. But that's just me. I'm certain I'm the only person who thinks that.

    Being a Texas and having endured Mr. Perry during his long tenure as govenor of this state, I can assure you that he is just as much a crook as they all are! He really thinks he is "God's annointed one for the President of our wonderful country". I think Mrs. Perry was into something heavy when she related that it was revealed to her "through a burning bush" experience that he was God's chosen one. She needs to share with us whatever it is that she is taking these days for her illusions.
