Their religious leaders stand and speak of killing homosexuals. Maybe it’s just me, but can’t we all hear the whisper of Jesus Christ, as he hangs on the cross: “Come my children, crucify those who are different from you, pass judgment, single out those whom you disagree with, insult them, cast stones at the ugliness of their difference of beliefs, starve the hungry, neglect those who need medical attention, kill off the planet which my father, your almighty God, created for you, create unrest, begin wars of greed, feed the wealthy, ignore the cry of the homeless children, they aren’t entitled to anything. Don’t give handouts, people don’t deserve it. Always, my dear children, give breaks to the wealthy, give them the strength and clear the pathway for them to pollute the land and to torture your soul with their poisons. Eat the genetically modified food presented, that says what my father planted for you wasn’t good enough. Always, my children, I say unto you, do not tax the wealthy and do not let your nation take care of those in need. We are not of the faith of taking care of the sick or needy, we are to bow to the rich and allow them to destroy our nations, our lives, our freedoms, and pollute not only our lands, but our hearts and souls through manipulation, lies, and ignorance."
Faith in my God, in my strong spiritual beliefs, shuns those believers. They do not even know the God they pretend to follow. The premise preached is diabolical. The Koch invention of the super PAC, Americans for Prosperity, speaks volumes: Americans for prosperity. I’m sure that is exactly where Jesus would have stood, with prosperity, in a room full of hungry, homeless, uneducated, uninsured, and unemployed people, he would have inhaled the Koch ideology and shed his blood for their wealth. Can I get an Amen?
I put the responsibility on David and Charles Koch and the fundamentalists who were so desperate they clung to the heels of the Koch-created Americans for Prosperity. The fundamentalists, without knowledge, gave the brothers superior control in our lawmaking. The laws aren’t to protect the theism of the fundamentalists; it is to clear a distinct path to allow the wealthy to control our laws, our freedoms, and our land. Yes, I am angry.
I don’t think this is a liberal issue. I think this should be an American concern. Let’s talk about the Koch bros: David Koch leads ALEC (American Legislative Exchange Council) which pushes laws that further the corporate intention. These laws that are pushed are not about your anti abortion/anti gay beliefs. ALEC educates legislators and helps inform judges through Koch funding. Our judges and legislators take Koch lessons at ALEC. They are taught which laws they should support, which are never moral laws, to further corporate business and the free market. ALEC pushed for privatization of federal and state services and assets to blocking caps on unlimited credit card rates. Remember, the people who belong to ALEC are our bill makers, many Republican lawmakers, and judges. The companies that belong to the ALEC cult are, my favorite, ExxonMobil, along with: Walmart, Coca-Cola, PepsiCo, AT&T, Bayer, Pfizer, GlaxoSmithKline, Johnson & Johnson, Kraft, Koch Industries, and UPS. Those big money names, especially ExxonMobil, sit at meetings and tell our Republican lawmakers what laws to push through. Now that is scary. I tip my hat to Coca-Cola, Walmart, and PepsiCo for recently leaving ALEC, but I know Koch Industries joined with Pfizer and Exxon because they still have too much big money power in our legislation.
