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.
