Rick Perry and the Day of Hate and Pancakes
Holy prayerpalooza Batman !!! I see that brother Rick Perry, the Governator of Texas, did gather his flock around him and pray for the salvation of these United States.
Father, our heart breaks for America. We see discord at home. We see fear in the marketplace. We see anger in the halls of government, and as a nation we have forgotten who made us, who protects us, who blesses us and for that we cry out for your forgiveness.”
And no doubt for his slim chances of becoming God's bubbah in the White House. After they kick the black Mooslim out. Or lynch him.
While his screeching wingnuts raised their arms to the sky, and prayed for the destruction of their many enemies. Especially the wicked women of the world, all other false religions, and of course, Satan's little gay helpers...
But then why should we be surprised eh? With this hellish line-up of religious extremists and bigots.
Homosexuality is kind of Engle's core issue: He helped organize a huge rally in support of California's Proposition 8, which affirmed that marriage was between one man and one woman. He called gay marriage "a sexual insanity" that would "release a spirit" in California "more demonic than Islam."
Most recently, Engle has been in the hot seat again for saying that the Joplin, Missouri tornado was the beginning of "God's redemptive judgment" against abortion.
Gawd. I mean Jebeebebus. The good news? The stadium was half empty. And it might have been billed as a Day of Prayer and Fasting.
But the fasting part was optional.
Just as well eh?
Because can you IMAGINE what might have happened if it wasn't? In Amerika? Praise the Lord, and pass the cheeseburgers !!!!!
And my absolutely fave part? The wingnuts from the International House of Prayer (IHOP) are apparently embroiled in an ugly legal dispute with The International House of Pancakes.
(In case you're wondering, yes, the International House of Pancakes did sue IHOP-KC for trademark dilution and infringement last September. The case was settled out of court in December. Correction: The trademark infringement lawsuit filed in California has been dropped; a new suit against International House of Prayer was filed in the U.S. District Court in Western Missouri and is ongoing.)
Because somehow that seems so fitting.
You know...people keep telling me that America isn't collapsing under the weight of bad economics and crazy religion.
But holy moley Monkey God.
I don't believe them...
