Huckabee and the Republic of Gilead
I've always known that the United States has just as many religious fanatics as Iran does....but I didn't think I'd ever live to see the day when it became a Christofascist state.
Or the homophobic Walmart version of the Republic of Gilead.
But now I'm not so sure.
"I feel homosexuality is an aberrant, unnatural, and sinful lifestyle, and we now know it can pose a dangerous public health risk....
If the federal government is truly serious about doing something with the AIDS virus, we need to take steps that would isolate the carriers of this plague."
Uh oh. Hucky Fucky. Here comes Bad Jesus.
But then what do you expect from a country where the Republican leadership candidates spend all their time arguing about who is the better Christian?
Just like Mitt Romney did....with his recent ridiculous ode to theocracy. Which he tried to compare to the speech John Kennedy once made.
Oh boy did he ever...
Even though as Maureen Dowd points out...Mitt Romney is no JFK.
Disguised as a courageous, Kennedyesque statement of principle, the talk was really just an attempt to compete with the evolution-disdaining, religion-baiting Huckabee and get Baptists to concede that Mormons are Christians.
“J.F.K.’s speech was to reassure Americans that he wasn’t a religious fanatic... Mitt’s was to tell evangelical Christians, ‘I’m a religious fanatic just like you.’
Even though Mormons aren't really Christians.
I mean just tell the Holy Roller Republican base that the followers of Moroni believe Jesus is the brother of Satan.
And that Mormonism is the only TRUE FAITH.
And it's no wonder Mitt's little speech went down almost as well as this one...
You know ....the frightening thing is our hairy ancestors were drawing those kind of horned creatures on the walls of their caves.
The only difference is that back then religion was just harmless Ju Ju Monkey nonsense.
Now it's getting dangerous...
P.S. I just LOVED what Chris Kelly had to say about Romney's speech in the Huffington Post.
"Mitt Romney made his religion speech during Hanukkah because he's the only candidate oily enough to burn for eight days...."
He burns now.
We burn later...
