Gomer: 'We Have Put Into Place Leaders Who May Bring Down Judgment On The United States'

http://www.rightwingwatch.org/content/gohmert-we-have-put-place-leaders-who-may-bring-down-judgment-united-states

Following Benjamin Netanyahu's speech to Congress yesterday, Rep. Louie Gohmert called into the "Point of View" radio program to discuss the Israeli Prime Minister's remarks. During the discussion, the Texas Congressman alleged that the Obama administration told the Nigerian government that the U.S. will not assist in the fight against the terrorist organization Boko Haram until Nigeria legalizes gay marriage.

"I don't know if you saw this story," Gohmert said, "but it was reported from Nigeria that this administration said unless you change your law to allow same-sex marriage, then we're not going to help you against the radical Islamist Boko Haram, which is killing Christians, having young girls raped and sold into sex slavery."

The "reports" that Gohmert mentioned seem to have come from right-wing outlets such as WorldNetDaily and The Gateway Pundit, so obviously they are very reliable.

Gohmert then went on to warn that God will punish America for "turning its back on Christians and Jews around the world."

"I am very afraid since I know," he said, "that the judgements of the Lord are true and righteous altogether. It doesn't matter how many people in America are faithful followers, we have put into place leaders who may bring down judgment on the United States if we don't start helping the good guys";

1. So, how many "judgment on the United States for (fill in the blank) does this make?

And why can't we convince them that God is going to bring down judgment on the United States for insufficient recycling (aka bad stewardship)?

2. In light of that, America should switch to a more benevolent God that doesn't punish.

 

Problem solved.

4. Do You Think...

...that perhaps God has already begun to punish America, and that's why Louie is in a position that allows his remarks to be brought to public attention?

It could be. I know I'm hoping for mercy...

7. You would think that it would make him and his fellow religious nuts happy

Instead, he is afraid? Why doesn't he want to go to heaven and be with Jesus?

10. Seems the perfect thread for this quote...

from one of my very favorite authors.

To be sure, the Bible contains the direct words of God. How do we know? The Moral Majority says so. How do they know? They say they know and to doubt it makes you an agent of the Devil or, worse, a Lbr-l Dm-cr-t. And what does the Bible textbook say? Well, among other things it says the earth was created in 4004 BC (Not actually, but a Moral Majority type figured that out three and a half centuries ago, and his word is also accepted as inspired.) The sun was created three days later. The first male was molded out of dirt, and the first female was molded, some time later, out of his rib. As far as the end of the universe is concerned, the Book of Revelation (6:13-14) says: "And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind." Imagine the people who believe such things and who are not ashamed to ignore, totally, all the patient findings of thinking minds through all the centuries since the Bible was written. And it is these ignorant people, the most uneducated, the most unimaginative, the most unthinking among us, who would make themselves the guides and leaders of us all; who would force their feeble and childish beliefs on us; who would invade our schools and libraries and homes. I personally resent it bitterly.
