First off congradulations to the Mac for graduating college!
A few days ago I turned my car radio to WHKZ (1440 AM) Warren, Ohio. The host was Pastor Ernie Sanders broadcasting from the Cleveland area. Ernie was preaching about his worship of guns and spewing hate for government, the “entitled, “Islam, gays, public schools, unions, how Barack HUSSEIN Obama is a communist, Muslim, foreign-born anti-Christ etc. Pastor Ernie was condemning all liberals and all things liberal to Hell and talking about how God was on his side. To me hate-filled preachers like Ernie believe they represent “Christian values.” According to Ernie liberals like me have an opinion of Christ that makes us Hell bound. I believe that Jesus would not have believed in “Trickle down economics” where more is given to the wealthy at harm to our poorest. I also believe Jesus would not be against programs that help the elderly, poor and the sick. I believe Jesus would have thought Obamacare didn’t go far enough. Pastor Ernie can condemn me to Hell if he wants for the truth is I wouldn’t want to live in his vision of Heaven. I do thank Pastor Ernie and a woman’s bumper sticker for helping me write the following poem.
The God of the Bible says “Don’t kill.”
One of the Ten Commandments
states “Thou shalt not kill.
The first mass murderer of the Bible is God himself,
starting with flooding the Earth and killing all
but those aboard Noah’s Ark.
The LORD rained down burning sulfur
killing those in Sodom and Gomorrah.
Exodus 2:29-30 At midnight the Lord
struck down all the firstborn
in Egypt, from the firstborn of Pharaoh,
who sat on the throne,
to the firstborn of the prisoner,
who was in the dungeon, and the
firstborn of all the livestock as well.
In Exodus 14:24-28 God destroys the Pharaoh’s army.
Exodus 19:12 God states whoever commits the act
of touching Mt. Sinai must die for this victimless crime.
Exodus 31:15 commands those who work on Sunday
must be put to death another victimless crime.
We hear In Exodus 32: “Thus says the Lord God,
“‘Put every man his sword by his side,
slay every man his brother,
his companion and neighbor.”
In Exodus 32:27-28, 35 God has 3000 people killed
for the victimless crime of worshipping a golden calf,
and then he throws in a plague for good measure.
This murderous God initially wanted to kill
them all, but a calmer headed Moses talked him out of it.
The entire Book of Leviticus is filled with rules
and the violation of many of them like
priests letting their hair become “unkempt”,
adultery, cursing parents, bestiality, prostitution,
are all subject to the pain of death.
Deuteronomy 13:1-5 Prophets for other religions must be killed.
Deuteronomy 13:6-9 (Your brother, your children, your wife, or
your closest friend must be killed if they commit the victimless
crime of suggesting religious exploration.
Deuteronomy 13:12-15 Entire towns must be murdered
if their inhabitants have committed
the victimless crime of adopting another religion.
Deuteronomy 17:2-5 Anyone found guilty
of worshipping other gods or celestial objects
must be stoned to death.
Deuteronomy 21:18-21 A “stubborn and rebellious son” must die.
Deuteronomy 22:20-21 If a girl commits premarital sex, she must die.
Deuteronomy 25:11 If your wife touches your private parts
during a public dispute, you must cut off her hand.
Talk about the ultimate victimless crime;
I think most men like it when their wife
touches their private parts.
I could go on and on about the Bible
and its book after book of
boastful tales of hatred and murder by God.
I think about all this because an elderly woman
just stole the parking spot I very patiently waited for.
I believe the God of the Bible would say
I was justified in stoning her to death.
I note she has a bumper sticker
that says God is pro-life.
I take it she is not a Christian.
My pick for local buffoon of the week is a second week in a row winner, Warren Tribune Community Columnist Martha Yoder. Ms. Yoder once again is singing high praises for fracking. Yoder said, “Our country’s dependence on foreign oil will be lessened by increased domestic energy production.” I guess Ms. Yoder missed an article in the rag she works for saying much of Ohio’s natural gas will be going to Asia and India. The truth is the oil from Utica drilling in Ohio is smaller than expected. Utica drilling is mostly getting natural gas which is worth much less than the oil and already in great abundance in the U.S. Yoder talks about the greatest benefit being the creation of jobs in our area that sorely needs them. She believes this because she attended a career fair that was put on by the Regional Chamber featuring about 30 energy industry related companies and educational institutions. If Yoder would have done some investigation about other areas of the country that were promised lots of area jobs she have found out about the lies about local jobs. I’m sure Martha “Fracking” Yoder will continue to be a corporate stooge and give me plenty more reasons to name her local buffoon of the week.
National buffoon of the week is teabagger libertarian radio host Adam Kokesh. See why here.
Andy Gross: “10 More Gallons”
Fraser McArter: “Sorry State of the Union Blues”
