Now, and forgive me if I already posted this on another thread, let us suppose that some nutbag walked into a fundamentalist church and killed a couple of dozen congregants before killing himself. And let us further suppose that before the bodies could even be removed, Rachel Maddow or Keith Olbermann went on the air and said the shootings were God's judgment on the congregation for its bigotry.

What do you think would happen?

And in light of what likely would happen, why does Mike Huckabee still have a job?


My sole comment to that idiocy on my Book Of Faces:

"If God is omniscient and omnipresent, you can't remove him from anything."


I agree. Thank you.

Amen, sister.

When I was a kid, I had a recurrent nightmare that I died and went to heaven, and heaven was made out of aluminum foil.

I think that's the heaven of the god these people worship.

I've seen that asinine substitute for thought once on Facebook. The person who posted it is no longer on my friends list. But I'll tell you, the thoughts above ran through my mind, practically verbatim.

I knew the poster about 30 years ago, and most of her posts until the last one were mostly about her kids and extended family. I don't think she posted it to be asinine, so I just unfriended her account. Someday I'll probably be glad I didn't go off on her, but yeah, right now? Well, perhaps it's kindest to say that there's nothing wrong with having a fifth grade understanding of the Bible . . . as long as you're in fifth grade.

Sure, it's not like there aren't any shootings in churches.

Er, never mind.

Thank you. The ridiculousness being posted on Facebook comparing God to some petulant 8-year-old who wasn't invited to the party has been making me crazy. Here's another sane response to it that's making the rounds: http://rachelheldevans.com/blog/god-kept-out

I am also unfriending anyone who justifies mass murder by posting that particular pray away the guns crap.
