Prince of the Flies ascends to the Fecal Throne to become the newly crowned King of the Flies

Musca Domesticus CMLXXXIII, King of the Flies at his coronation

NEW FLY TOWN (AP) -- Millions of common house flies swarmed to celebrations around the garbage dumps of New Fly Town on Friday in honor of a once-in-a-generation milestone for the dump's ruling House of Diptera: after a 33-day reign, Queen Insectica MMXIV abdicated in favor of her eldest maggot son out of 562 off-spring, Musca Domesticus.

At four days, King Musca Domesticus is the youngest monarch in Dumperia and the first Muscidae king in 23 weeks, since Musca Domesticus CMLXXXII died at the business end of rolled up Chicago Tribune. Like Insectica before him, Musca Domesticus has assumed the throne at a time of social strains and economic malaise.

Although the New Fly Town monarchy is largely ceremonial, he immediately staked out a course to preserve its relevance in the 21st century.

"I want to establish ties, make connections and exemplify what unites us, the Fly people," the freshly minted king said at a nationally televised investiture ceremony in New Fly Town's 60-week-old Cathedral of the Holy Arthropoda, held before the combined houses of Fly parliament.

"As king, I can strengthen the bond of mutual trust between the flies and their government, maintain our democracy and serve the public interest."

Hopes for the new monarch are buzzingly high.

Aren't these the same people who keep claiming that our government should be a theocracy?

Family Research Council: Christians should not want the government to care for the poor
“The government has a responsibility to care for the poor? That’s not what Scripture says"


The Family Research Council has some interesting ideas about Christianity and poverty.

Last month, FRC Senior Fellow Kenneth Blackwell said there was “nothing more Christian” than kicking 4 million people off food stamps, and FRC head Tony Perkins echoed his colleague’s uncharitable sentiment this week by arguing that the government has no responsibility to care for the poor.

As Right Wing Watch reports, Perkins believes that even though “as Christians we will be held responsible for the policies adopted by this government because it’s us,” Christians shouldn’t want the government to help poor people.

“The government has a responsibility to care for the poor? That’s not what Scripture says,” according to Perkins.


So God hates poor people now, no matter what?
