Jesus Goes to Washington
Ten years ago I would not have considered that Roe v Wade could be overturned, or that the famous Scopes Trial could be played out in reverse, but it occurs to me more and more that our country is humming to a 1930s political tune as well as an economic one.
Two thirds of Americans polled cite that religion is important in their life, and 75% of Americans refer to themselves as Christians. The conservative political movement is hijacking Christian consciousness for political ends and turning the Republican Party into its sheep dog.
Every day, conservatives trumpet the diabolical schemes of our country’s enemies: Islam, Socialists, Communists, the wealthy elite, and those heathen Liberals. But, ask yourself one probing question, are these the enemies of America, or are they the enemies of hard line Christianity?
If you believe they are one and the same, it might be too late for you; you have already been turned into a fish zombie. Your most precious freedom has enslaved you and is being manipulated to control you. The very “liberal press” you despise may be the last vestige of sanity left in your world, and yet, you aspire to extinguish it so there is no one left to question your fish fortitude.
If you don’t believe the fish mongered diabolical schemes, congratulations, you are not a fish zombie (yet). However, you are obviously in some sort of a dumb ass stupor, because the fish zombies are taking control of your fucking country!
I did not dream that Rick Sanchez said that “Jews control the media” on a radio show promoting his book; I did not dream that it was necessary for President Obama, once a proud liberal, to declare himself a member of The Cult of the Fish in order to stand a chance of winning the 2012 election; and I am not dreaming when I tell you gays cannot serve openly in the military or be joined in matrimony because The Cult of the Fish dominates Congress.
The Cult of the Fish is divisive and separatist; it splits people into those who will be saved and those who are condemned to eternal hell for… thinking. You either join the cult or die a fiery death indefinitely. Nice humanity. Leave your debates on whether or not a lightning bolt takes you away before, or after seven years of bad luck for your cult meetings. There is no place for this mindset in Washington if we are to remain a democracy.
We are on the verge of living a perverse irony where the separation of church and state goes the way of the old “blue laws”, by remaining on the books but being ignored and ineffectual. Our country is selecting candidates whose only qualification is that they are members of The Cult of the Fish, and not very good at that.
Wake up America, you are about to get snagged, hook, line, and sinker.
