Here we go again, again, or do I repeat myself. “God’s Own Party Lights up in Iowa” may have been a good title for the news report. Our local paper ran the headline, “GOP hopefuls woo evangelicals: 6 candidates at Iowa forum call for religion’s role in politics to grow.”
Yes sir! Just what America needs is politics bathing in baptismal waters! Judas Priest, what the Hell is going on? Many of the candidates, the report said, cried while telling their story of conversion. Thrice-married Newt sobbed, and later excoriated the Occupy group for using public toilets and public parks. At the end of his rant he chided the protesters to ‘take a bath and get a job!’ Jesus Christ! He received wild applause for that nasty statement.
Of course, neither Romney nor Huntsman attended the forum, knowing that there was a sign, “Mormons Need Not Attend!”
Pimping Jesus. These odd candidates were no doubt at home with this set of odd Christians- CINO’s, Christians in name only. I’ve written extensively about these CINO’s and I do not care to go any futher into this sorry-ass lot of shysters.
USA Today printed this line about the gathering: “With the presidential hopefuls gathered around a Thanksgiving-themed table facing the audience, the imagery was one of the Last Supper setup – and faith was a central theme.” The paper also noted that the event was pipped into the pews at First Federated Church in Des Moines where the governor, a senator and a representative listened intently.
It was interesting to see libertarian Ron Paul at the table. I wonder if he objected when the table talk turned to woman’s reproductive rights? Gingrich said that he liked the recently-defeated Mississippi ballot initiative that declared ‘personhood’ for a newly fertilized egg- the law that would require each miscarriage to be reported to the police for possible criminal investigation. Libertarian? Get the government out of our lives?
The sanctimonious Rick Santorum, after tearing up about so-called ‘partial birth’ abortion said, “One reason he is running for president is a desire to overturn the health care reforms known as “Obamacare” and assure sick children have access to necessary care.” WTF?? Is he nuts or does he think that the Iowa voters are that stupid? Probably.
One might ask of these oh-so Christian candidates, WWJD? But then, they are CINO’s and don’t give a damn what Jesus did or said during his life. Charlatans all!
