Onward, Christian Soldiers, Marching As To War

Onward, Christian soldiers, marching as to war,
With the cross of Jesus going on before.
Christ, the royal Master, leads against the foe;
Forward into battle see His banners go!

Reverend Rick Scarborough is preparing  for his “40 Days to Save America” event, which is set to begin Sept. 28 and run through the election.   The Reverend is calling on his followers to pray and fast in order to to get God to intervene in the presidential race.

Now along comes The Gov. to get in on the action.  Earlier this week, The Gov. held a conference call with the evangelical leaders across the Bible Belt and shared his thoughts on the origins of the constitutionally mandated separation of church and state.

The Gov has a unique take on the issue.  “Satan runs across the world with his doubt and with his untruths and what have you and one of the untruths out there that is driven is that people of faith should not be involved in the public arena” Perry said during the call.

So, it was Satan and not the founders who brought about constitutional separation of church and state.  According to The Gov. the separation of religious and civic institutions in the U.S. began in the 60’s. The Gov. went on with
“Somehow or another there’s this, ya know, steel wall, this iron curtain or whatever you want to call it between the church and people of faith and this separation of church and state is just false on its face. We have a biblical responsibility to be involved in the public arena proclaiming God’s truth.”

Can’t wait for the throngs of evangelical christiains intoning the masses to get God to kick Obama out and put Mittens in….

Onward then, ye people, join our happy throng,
Blend with ours your voices in the triumph song.
Glory, laud, and honor unto Christ the King,
This through countless ages men and angels sing.

Perry Spending $400,000 a Month on Security

The Gov is the only Republican candidate for President with Security Guards financed by taxpayers.  The security putss the tax payers of Texas on the hook to the tune of $400,000 a month.  The Texas Department of Public Safety records show they spent more over $1.4 million on out-of-state trips between September to mid-December of 2011 on The Gov’s security detail.

The Gov who repeatedly said that government spending is put pf control and taxpayers shouldn’t be footing the bill for politicians careless ways flippantly has said “I’m going to be promoting Texas, I’m going to be traveling to places where the Texas story needs to be told, and we will tell it.”

This appears to be a gross miscarriage of the public trust.  It appears The Gov does not like to practice what the preaches.  As we reported earlier, The Gov has retired while serving as Governor of Texas so that he can double dip the state to a tune of almost double his salary.  Now he says he is spreading he message of Texas as he campaigns in places like  Iowa and South Carolina.   This appears to be nothing more than a ruse to put the citizens of Texas on the hook to pay for his national ambitions.

Not that anything can or will be done in the Right Wing controlled legislature of Texas, it just seems to be patently wrong.

Pat Robertson Says Having Alzheimer’s An OK Reason To Get Divorced

This just gets my craw.  Irks me to no end.  Flat out pisses me off.  I guess you get my drift.

The Associated Press reports that past presidential candidate and leader of the 700 Club, Pat Robertson told his viewers that “divorcing a spouse with Alzheimer’s is justifiable”.  Robertson went on to say “I know it sounds cruel, but if he’s going to do something, he should divorce her and start all over again, but make sure she has custodial care and somebody looking after her.”

Robertson’s co-host, asked about a couples’ marriage vows, you know that part about to take care of each other “for better or for worse” and “in sickness and in health.”

Pobertson replied “If you respect that vow, you say ’til death do us part, this is a kind of death.”

WTF? This is just on of hundreds of examples of how the new Republican brand of religion is 180 out.

Another example is The Gov’s visit to at  the Rev. Jerry Falwell’s, Liberty University, to bolster his religous creds no doubt.  In The Gov’s Speech the students cheered louder at the mention of guns than they did for his mention of living a moral life.

In my humble view, it appears that Republican Christians no longer recognize the teachings of Christ.  They view everything politically, even the Holy Text, The Bible.  I don’t think God would not recognize his so called Evangelical Christian followers.  You know the Teabagger ones that say f^%! the poor, Greed is Good.  The Apostle Mark wrote “It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.”  These very same so called Christians cheered “Yeah” at a recent televised Tea Party Debate, when asked if a poor 30 year old should be left to die if he did not have insurance.

Something has gone truly wrong if this is the modern Christianity.
