The United States of God

Guess this Thumper of Bibles, Rep. Randy Forbes (R) VA, forgot his Constitutional oath and this precious part:

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

Hey Randy, you can practice your religion at home, in your church, your friend's homes, relatives, etc. Even on city streets and public parks.

But keep your goddamned twisted version of reality out of our government. And remember what Alvin Lee and 10 Years After said in their excellent song, "Religion."

"Never really understood religion, except it seems a good excuse to kill"

Here's a small sampling of what 'Reverend Randy" wants to do:

1. H.CON.RES.34 : Calling upon the Capitol Preservation Commission and the Office of the Architect of the Capitol to place the Lincoln-Obama Bible on permanent display upon the Lincoln table at the Capitol Visitor Center for the benefit of all its visitors to fully understand and appreciate America's history and Godly heritage.

5. H.RES.397 : Affirming the rich spiritual and religious history of our Nation's founding and subsequent history and expressing support for designation of the first week in May as "America's Spiritual Heritage Week" for the appreciation of and education on America's history of religious faith.

America's history or religious faith? A lot of our ancestors fled the religious nuts in England to get away from people like you, so leave your version of history out of our minds.

Here's some history for you, Randy:
Benjamin Franklin has been venereated as one of the wise men of the Revolutionary Period. Along with that veneration has grown a myth that he called for three days of prayer during the recess for July 4, 1787 and the addition of a chaplain to lead prayers for the daily meetings of the Consitutional Convention. It is further said that after this period of prayer meetings, the Constitutional Convention resumed with the addition of the chaplain and sped peacefully to concluding the writing of The Constitution.

The documentation of the Convention states only that Dr. Franklin proposed daily prayer led by a clergyman and that the Convention adjourned without passing the motion. Records of the remainder of the convention indicate that acrimonious debate continued right through to the end.
Rep. Randy Forbes: Revisionist Historian

While doing research on 'Reverend Randy,' found this interesting tidbit that so far this year, AIPAC is paying more to the Repubs than the Dems to travel to Apartheid Israel. Wonder why? Hmmmm?

You don't think that they want to control the Congress, do you?

Nahh, that's so anti-Semitic to ask that question, isn't it?

  1. I consider myself Christian, but by no means I support american politicians claims that they could do something in the name of God. That's terrible. Freedom of thought, speech should be the cornerstone of any society. I do not think that politicians like Bush are Christians. They misuse name of God. What a shame. Thanks for the article.
