Just A Little Post Memorial Day Reminder


"Why is this man in the White House? The majority of Americans did not vote for him. Why is he there? And I tell you this morning that he's in the White House because God put him there for a time such as this." ~Lt Gen William Boykin, speaking of G. W. Bush, New York Times, 17 October 2003

Man On A Mission: Tom DeLay Says God Has Sent Him On A Crusade To Save The GOP

LJ-SEC: (ORIGINALLY POSTED BY [info]navytron89)

It’s good to know that TV preacher Pat Robertson isn’t the only one who gets messages from God these days. The Almighty has also been talking to Tom DeLay, the former majority leader of the House of Representatives.

God is apparently worried about the rough patch the Republican Party is going through, and he’s tapped DeLay to fix it up.

DeLay explains it all in the latest issue of The New Yorker.

“God has spoken to me,” DeLay told the magazine. “I listen to God, and what I’ve heard is that I’m supposed to devote myself to rebuilding the conservative base of the Republican Party, and I think we shouldn’t be underestimated.”

DeLay said the GOP’s minority status is not such a bad thing.

“I see this as a cleansing process, where you can return to your principles, which are order, justice, and freedom – the basic principles of the conservative movement,” he said. “We have to redefine government based on conservative principles, we have to win the war against our culture, and we have to win the war on terror.”

Personal Comments: Why is it the biggest hypocritical nutjobs are always hearing from "GOD". I'm trully amazed that DeLay wants to restore the GOP to its former glory. This guy broke most of the 10 Commandments and has the nerve to say that he wants to do "GOD"'s work now. I think he need some special medicine like they give to Oral Roberts to keep him and others like him from hearing "GOD". 

I have no problem that people talk to "GOD" I think though when they hear him and have dellusions of power, then someone who is alot more in touch with reality needs to step up and use a "Clue by Four" to help them see the light. DeLay should be doing a few years in a prison uniform and getting some male on male bonding in prison to make him a bit more humble, and not trying to fix something he himself fucked away to begin with. 

As for being pragmatic person Tom DeLay wouldn't know pragmatic if it hit him in the head with a "Clue by Four". and was wearing neon yellow sign explaining it to the someone who is that dense.
Oh and the other reason this is Dominionist/fundie related is in the article
and  mentions Reverend Ken Wilde; another evagalical leader who has ties to Fundies and the National Prayer Group that is part of Pat Robertson shtick.....

A positive note ..

I was discussing the confrontational saber rattling between Bush and Ahmadinejad a couple of days ago with my friend from Iran, and I'm not sure if she or I came up with this idea, but between us we both came up with a notion of getting ordinary people from both countries talking directly to each other, pen-pal style, and establishing friendships by correspondence, then having that common community persuade both leaders to get with the program. I have it on reliable authority that Americans as ordinary people are still quite popular with ordinary Iranians, posturing by the government and the ayatollahs notwithstanding.

And that idea could be used with a lot of other countries besides Iran .. :D
