This nation belongs to Jesus-NOT!

PHILADELPHIA (AP)-Thousands pray for US at ‘America for Jesus’ rally!

Yes, they are praying that Jesus work a miracle on our nation.  The miracle? Well, that remains unclear, but surely it was something about the general depravity of the country. You know, the ‘radical homosexual agenda’ and ‘European socialism’ and [add your favorite phrase].

Pat Robertson stood before Independence Hall Saturday and proclaimed that “This nation belongs to Jesus.”

Really? And where is that in the Constitution?

Robertson was in the middle of his presentation when a loud and unexpected dose of partisanship came from the audience.

“Obama is bringing sin on the nation. Support Mitt Romney,” yelled Rives Grogan of Los Angeles. “Don’t be a hypocrite. Who are you going to vote for?”

Grogan, who described himself as an antiabortion protester and pastor of the New Beginnings Christian Church in Los Angeles, held up a plaque with several photos of bloodied images.

Attendees waved flags in support of the United States and Israel.  Does Jesus know what the flag of Israel looks like?

Leonora Mayfield ,a member of Balance Ministries church in Mount Airy, said her congregation had been praying for the success of the event for months.

“The country has turned so far away from God that we are no longer in a blessed state,” she said, “but prayer changes things.

Oh for sure!  Prayer changes things.  Just like it has for the past 2000 years?

What a joke.

  1. A local Baptist church has this weekly message on its church sign,”you are the nails in his wrists, but he still loves you.”

  2. I have recently been told someone should burn a cross in my front yard. I have been accussed of abusing drugs. I have been told I’ve lost my way because I don’t attend church. When I look out my front window, I see the new Knights of Columbus yard sign next to the Josh Mandel yard sign in the neighbors front yard.

    Do you guys get any of this because you support Obama? Between comments like these and this blog, it just makes me work all the harder to keep President Obama in the White House.

  3. On the Post previous to this one, M_R wrote: “We then got into the topic of why this demographic continues to vote against their own economic interests and we both concluded that it has a lot to do with Christian fundamentalism”.

    It seems to me that we can’t just blame everything on religion. There is a much more, if Ican use the term, “fundamental” reason for red state
    voters “voting against their interests” as M_R and his phone buddy brought out in that Post…

  4. It seems to me this is where we have been missing the reason on why “red”
    state voters vote against their economic interests. Well, not only us, but
    most every book on the subject. I feel a book here, M_R. We can give the real reason(s) why….

  5. Here is a rebuttal to Frank’s book.

    “Larry Bartels, a professor in the department of politics at the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs at Princeton University, in “What’s the Matter with What’s the Matter with Kansas,” tests “Frank’s thesis by examining class-related patterns of issue preferences, partisanship, and voting over the past half-century.” Specifically, Bartels focuses on four questions:

    Has the white working class abandoned the Democratic party?
    Has the white working class become more conservative?
    Do working class “moral values” trump economics?
    Are religious voters distracted from economic issues?
    Bartels’s answer to each question is “no.””

    Frank is close, but close only counts in horseshoes! What’s that old adage, something like “can’t see the trees because of the forest”?
