Your tax dollars at work, people! Even as the country slides perilously close to a double dip recession, the House GOP took time out of their busy schedule of taking one weeks’ vacation for every two weeks of work to make sure Christianity to forced down everyone’s throat.
Nobody has proposed changing the national motto, but the House is set Tuesday to vote on a bill that assure that the phrase “In God We Trust” stays put.
The measure, which is sponsored by Rep. Randy Forbes (R-Va.), would encourage public buildings, schools and government facilities to display the phrase. It declares that “In God We Trust” and sentiments behind it have been an “integral” part of the United States, and “in times of national challenge or tragedy, the people of the United States have turned to God as their source for sustenance, protection, wisdom, strength, and direction.”
Wow. This will surely solve our national woes. Just like Rick Perry’s great prayer meeting was supposed to put out the wildfires consuming Texas and fix the budget. It did neither of those things. It did, however, send a clear message that the GOP is a Christian organization and non-Christians will continue to have no voice in their America.
I wonder how many of these sanctimonious jackasses are even aware that just about every reference to the Judeo-Christian God in American politics only dates back to the 1950s and the Red Scare when gibbering buffoons rushed to embrace any method, no matter how ridiculous, to protect us from the “godless commies”? I’m guessing not many.
The worst part about the GOP wasting yet more time on frivolous and empty gestures instead of substantive policy? They’ll be rewarded by their mindless constituents for it. Praise Baby Jesus™!!!
