Well Christianity might make you a better person, but there's no guarantee that it supposed to make you smarter. Sigh.
God and politics just don't mix. God and values and morals sure. God and politics... never.
In this case Christianity didn't make her a better person either, she's a fracking bigot and uneducated trailer trash, let's not pussyfoot around and worry about PC.
Unlike what she claims to have, I don't have a religious code so I'll come right out and say, I wish nothing but ill on people like her. If and when something calamitous occurs, I would like to know her misguided faith left her praying in vain as whatever it was took her out.
It comes down to something that there's a good chance she doesn't believe in: Evolution.
How many of you heard the old joke about this?
Guy is in his house as the flood waters are coming, and start pouring into his first floor...he goes upstairs to wait it out. A bit later he spies a boat going down the street, and the men in the boat wave to him.
"Come on...we'll take you to dry ground!"
To which the man replied, "No no, the Lord's gonna save me."
The waterline comes up to the second floor, and he retreats to his attic, watching the rains continue from a window there.
Second boat comes by, a rescue offer is made.
"No no, I'm fine, the Lord's gonna save me."
Water reaches the roof, and now the man has climbed up on the gable, and eventually a third boat comes by.
Once again. "No Sir, the Lord's gonna save me."
An hour later only the gable and the chimney is sticking above the torrent, the latter of which the man is clinging to. A rescue helicopter comes by and pulls into a hover. Once again the man refuses, watching the crew fly off.
A bit later our overly faithful man arrives at the gates of heaven, where he does indeed meet the Lord. Of course he's compelled to ask God why he did not save him. To which a flustered creator replied, "Whatever are you talking about, fool? I sent three boats and a helicopter!"Get in the boat, bitch!
Use that oversized mammalian cerebral cortex that the Lord gifted you with; he might have said he is your shepherd but he didn't want mindless sheep. I'm not even Christian and I remember that somewhere it was said that God helps those that help themselves...even Noah got his hands dirty.
But I really do like the Terminator and X-Files versions best... No Fate But What We Make. Fight the Future.
The Founding Fathers separated church and state for a reason...here ya' go, this is why.
