The basis of right-wing theology in one shot…

Tell me again how killing a kid in The United States is failure of society, but killing one in a the Middle East, with a drone is a "casualty of war". Please tell me again how many times the bible says we need to help the poor, If the cause was so Godly you wouldn't have to force people to do it. You must not have got the memo. Your party voted to remove God from the party platform. Please tell me why the school can't be responsible for the safety of my children. Let me guess, we should form the Federal Department of School Safety, and funnel Billions of tax payers money into it?

This is the perfect encapsulation of the Right Wint theology and cognitive dissonance. I’m going to let you chew on that one a while…

Focus here:

Please tell me again how many times the bible says we need to help the poor, If the cause was so Godly you wouldn’t have to force people to do it.

Umm…. yeah….

  1. Ummmm … well …

    I agree about the concern for kids killed in other countries. Funny thing, though, I don’t remember this being a big deal for Republicans when Bush was in office. Have both parties changed their positions on “collateral damage” now?

    As for forcing people to do that which is Godly … ummm … what the heck are they trying to say?

    Does this mean that the Right is now going to abandon all initiatives with respect to gay marriage and abortion, because one doesn’t need to force people to do that which is godly?

    As for the last two points about school safety … which side are they on? They seem to be angry that Pres. Obama doesn’t want to put guards in schools and upset that he might use federal money for school security.

    I think that before ranting against someone, you should at least figure out your position.
