Liberals = God haters, local LTTE pretend to be a Pharisee contest
I hear people talking all the time about whats happening in this country, such as terrorist attacks, hurricanes, tornadoes, fires, the lack of water in some parts and floods in other parts, and many other things that seem to be going wrong.

Of course, much of it is blamed on President Bush, but the truth is its because of God-haters such as the liberals, the American Civil Liberties Union, and other organizations that are being helped by liberal judges to take over our country and get rid of God.

This country was founded by people who put all their trust in God and built a country based on his laws. God has taken care of this country from the beginning, helping to make it the strongest, most successful and best place to live.

God will not support any country that hates him and as long as we continue to let the God-haters take over, things will continue to get worse and if they do take over, this country will be a disaster.

Think about your children and grandchildren, is that the kind of country you want for them?
We can stop it by getting rid of the liberal politicians, the liberal judges, the ACLU, and all of the organizations working to ruin this country. It is going to take some work on the part of the citizens, just complaining is not going to stop what is happening.

One thing you need to do is to vote, dont stay home and say my vote wont count so I wont waste my time. When you vote, be sure to vote for the people who support God, no matter what party they belong to.

1. Well, I believe in the last point
"vote for people who support God."

Now, the God I am familiar with made things hard by saying no killing, lying, care of the poor, love each other. If a politician supports that version of God, I vote for him. or her

2. Methinks Mr. Jim Bates be an ignorant pigfucker.
Spends the whole letter trashing liberals, then says "vote for the people who support God, no matter what party they belong to". Not only did he end his sentence with a preposition, he just spend five or six sentences putting liberals on the side of God-haters. So, tell me, Mr. Jim Bates, in your ucked up worldview, how could there possibly be anyone in the Democrats who support God?

Inconsistent asshole.

4. it is so sad that people actually think like that.
god haters? God won't support a country? built on god's laws?

If anyone wonders where the 34% exists, Joplin is a good place to start. (No offense intended, usregimechange)

5. I think God needs a better HR department. It seems that most of his

6. So, America was a better country when...
America was better pre ACLU when black people were in slavery? Or, later on when they had to ride in the back of the bus, use separate restrooms and drinking fountains?

America was better when burning crosses on people's lawns was not uncommon?

America was better when robber-barons victimized the poor in sweatshops and children worked there as well?

7. Boy, these lttes get wackier and wackier.
There was one in our local rag the other day, the thesis of which was: "Liberalism is a disease spreading over our precious land." :wtf: No explanation of what kind of disease it is, no describing the effects of this disease, no presentation of evidence: just repeating the same crazy rhetoric over and over.

I'd think they were satirical, if they were just a tad funnier.

10. last year a HS kid wrote a guest column
to the local paper about how Socialism is the Left's agenda and how after 9-11, Republicans wanted to go to war to protect our country but Liberals wanted to portray the hijackers as victims. I was like: "Huh?" Who brainwashed this punk? lol

Here it is I found it on Free Republic. It's a hoot.

14. Fortunately, liberalism seems to be quite contagious these days.
It's a disease like spring fever: makes life better.

8. So would that be a hateful vengeful, homophobic, war-like God or
the loving, inclusive and kind God that I know?

I'm just saying, I don't really recognize the God that some conservatives get so riled up about. I recognize the God that gave us Jesus who in turn gave us the Beatitudes. You know, Jimmy, "Blessed are the peacemakers...." and not "Blessed are the warmongers" or "Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy" not "Blessed are the demogogues who take aways women's rights." You know, stuff like that.

I'm just saying, if you're going to play the God card, you might want to understand what She is all about. Not just what Pharisees are all about.

17. nope
Edited on Sat Mar-04-06 09:23 AM by Wetzelbill
but you have to refer to Her in some context, so just like Father Andrew Greeley does, I choose to use the feminine one. In case you never noticed, God is constantly refered to as "He." So does it really matter which way I refer to Her? Because in this case, grammatically, it doesn't really matter, it's just more of a personal preference.

I would also bet that you never mind when God is called "He" and you probably use that term yourself, without even noticing. It's pretty predominant.

19. Isaiah 32:5-8 clearly states that LIBERALS are the GOOD party.
> The Bible is quite explicit about how God looks at liberals--

> The vile person shall be no more called liberal, nor the churl said to be bountiful.

> For the vile person will speak villainy, and his heart will work iniquity, to practice hypocrisy, and to utter error against the LORD,
> to make empty the soul of the hungry, and he will cause the drink of the thirsty to fail.

> The instruments also of the churl are evil: he deviseth wicked devices to destroy the poor with lying words, even when the
> needy speaketh right.

> BUT THE LIBERAL DEVISETH LIBERAL THINGS; AND BY LIBERAL THINGS SHALL HE STAND.


Read the quote carefully.
Vile is shown to be antithetical to Liberal.
Churl is shown to be antithetical to Bountiful.

Vile, not Liberal, people practice hypocrisy, err against the Lord and make the souls empty and cause the drink of the thirsty to fail.
This sounds like a perfect definition of the way the Conservative arm of the Republican Party is acting.

The Churls, not the Liberals, are destroying the poor with lying words. Even when the needy are speaking right.
Look at the Tax cuts for the Poor. Where are they? Oh wait, they are for the rich. Oops, destroying the poor, yet again.

The LIBERAL is defined by the Liberal things they do.
This sounds exactly correct. No matter how much the NeoCons try they cannot make us evil. We stand by our acts.
We don't keep trying to change the rules and redefine history.
I am glad to find a conservative website finally agreeing with me. :)

Scary, considering I don't really take that much stock in the Bible, how accurate the description from over Two Thousand
years ago is

I can see why the Radical Right would want to deliberately read this quote incorrectly but,
we all know that Jesus was a Liberal. Sorry the facts stand as they are. Even stilted and
misogynistic writing of the 4 Gospel writers cant make Jesus NOT be Liberal.

If you want to be offended and frightened even more you can go to an insane web sight called www.repentnow.com


One other thing, I thought the original Post was a JOKE! I discovered that the person thought they were serious.
All of these Christians are going to be very disappointed if there is an afterlife. They are going to look very foolish
trying to explain why they were doing all of the CRAP they did in the name of god. Unless we are talking about ZOOL!

11. One observation for you
The Bible is quite explicit about how God looks at liberals--

The vile person shall be no more called liberal, nor the churl said to be bountiful.

For the vile person will speal villany, and his heart will work iniquity, to practise hypocrisy, and to utter error against the LORD, to make empty the soul of the hungry, and he will cause the drink of the thirsty to fail.

The instruments also of the churl are evil: he deviseth wicked devices to destroy the poor with lying words, even when the needy speaketh right.

BUT THE LIBERAL DEVISETH LIBERAL THINGS; AND BY LIBERAL THINGS SHALL HE STAND.

Isaiah 32:5-8

13. Those awful liberals!
Joe Republican should thank a "liberal"

Joe gets up at 6 a.m. and fills his coffeepot with water to prepare his morning coffee. The water is clean and good because some tree-hugging liberal fought for minimum water-quality standards. With his first swallow of water, he takes his daily medication. His medications are safe to take because some stupid commie liberal fought to ensure their safety and that they work as advertised.

All but $10 of his medications are paid for by his employer's medical plan because some liberal union workers fought their employers for paid medical insurance - now Joe gets it too.

He prepares his morning breakfast, bacon and eggs. Joe's bacon is safe to eat because some girly-man liberal fought for laws to regulate the meat packing industry.

In the morning shower, Joe reaches for his shampoo. His bottle is properly labeled with each ingredient and its amount in the total contents because some crybaby liberal fought for his right to know what he was putting on his body and how much it contained.

Joe dresses, walks outside and takes a deep breath. The air he breathes is clean because some environmentalist wacko liberal fought for the laws to stop industries from polluting our air.

He walks on the government-provided sidewalk to subway station for his government-subsidized ride to work. It saves him considerable money in parking and transportation fees because some fancy-pants liberal fought for affordable public transportation, which gives everyone the opportunity to be a contributor.

Joe begins his work day. He has a good job with excellent pay, medical benefits, retirement, paid holidays and vacation because some lazy liberal union members fought and died for these working standards. Joe's employer pays these standards because Joe's employer doesn't want his employees to call the union.

If Joe is hurt on the job or becomes unemployed, he'll get a worker compensation or unemployment check because some stupid liberal didn't think he should lose his home because of his temporary misfortune.

It is noontime and Joe needs to make a bank deposit so he can pay some bills. Joe's deposit is federally insured by the FSLIC because some godless liberal wanted to protect Joe's money from unscrupulous bankers who ruined the banking system before the Great Depression.

Joe has to pay his Fannie Mae-underwritten mortgage and his below-market federal student loan because some elitist liberal decided that Joe and the government would be better off if he was educated and earned more money over his lifetime. Joe also forgets that his in addition to his federally subsidized student loans, he attended a state funded university.

Joe is home from work. He plans to visit his father this evening at his farm home in the country. He gets in his car for the drive. His car is among the safest in the world because some America-hating liberal fought for car safety standards to go along with the tax-payer funded roads.

He arrives at his boyhood home. His was the third generation to live in the house financed by Farmers' Home Administration because bankers didn't want to make rural loans.

The house didn't have electricity until some big-government liberal stuck his nose where it didn't belong and demanded rural electrification.

He is happy to see his father, who is now retired. His father lives on Social Security and a union pension because some wine-drinking, cheese-eating liberal made sure he could take care of himself so Joe wouldn't have to.

Joe gets back in his car for the ride home, and turns on a radio talk show. The radio host keeps saying that liberals are bad and conservatives are good. He doesn't mention that the beloved Republicans have fought against every protection and benefit Joe enjoys throughout his day. Joe agrees: "We don't need those big-government liberals ruining our lives! After all, I'm a self-made man who believes everyone should take care of themselves, just like I have."

And let's not forget "the ladies;" just in case Joe Republican has a mother, sister, wife, daughter...
