(embed isn’t working for some reason, but it’s a video of this lunatic praying in for the end of health reform.)
I realize a large amount of these “things that are wrong with the world” posts are dedicated to crazy religious people. But that’s for a reason…cause they’re are fucking insane and pretty much one of the main things wrong with the world. Now, when it’s just Jethro down at the gas station telling you you’re going to hell for whatever arbitrary sin he chooses, it’s one thing. Jethro is a man with no power who , not ironically, very likely has trouble paying his power bills (god’s working on that one). Sure, he’s a short sighted yokel but his reach doesn’t extend much past the bug zapper on his trailer.
Like many of you, what scares the shit out of me is when people who are equally as crazy as “jethro” somehow find their way into positions of power. The thing is, there’s a huge part of me that feels like the most staunch right wing religious nut doesn’t REALLY believe the bullshit he/she is selling. I mean…come on. These are educated adults who have left their little town and experienced things. The type of things that might give a normal person perspective on the reality of things like , for instance, the bible being a factual book written by god and the rule book to life. They don’t actually believe that you can pray away something like healthcare reform, right? I mean, even a priest will tell you that’s some wacky bullshit.
When I was little kid, before I came to terms with the realization that the bible was just a book , I recall praying for things. Like most kids, they would be self serving. Things like a new toy or a good little league game the following day. That’s what kids do. This is cause kids don’t know anything. Clever as they may be at times, kids are mostly dumb as shit. It’s no fault of their own. They’re kids. They’re not supposed to know any better. But you take a grown ass woman like Michelle Bachmann who may be a future presidential candidate and she’s doing exactly the same thing I did when I was a kid, sitting in bed, clutching my snoopy stuffed animal like a little fucking pussy. It’s truly mind boggling.
So, yeah, if this SNL sketch of a human actually gets close to the White house, I’d personally like to call upon god to strike her down. I don’t care how…Lightening bolt…Hale…perhaps some sort of awesome “Final Destination” type thing where a loose screw results in a laundry line separating her head from her shoulders. Whatever works. Cause, I gotta think, if there was a god, even he would think Michelle Bachmann is a stupid cunt.
