Dancing For Dollars On A Woman’s Grave
So the crazy loons at Right March are on the warpath again, I really do love being on their mailing list, and this time they are using the name of Terri Schiavo to raise money for Republican candidates. They even tell me in an email alert, “If we believe Terri should not have been killed by starvation, then we have a duty before God to do something now in her name. Please, help the RightMarch.com PAC—help support the legislators on “Terri’s List” that tried so hard to save her life.” Well, if God says I have to give money to Republican political campaigns, then I guess I’ve got no choice. Jesus these people are sick.
Too bad for the Dems that God is a Republican because he’s a damn good fundraiser. All the star power in Hollywood can’t compete with the big guy upstairs when it comes to bringing in the dough, have you seen those Mega Churches? It is beyond cynical to use God in order to raise political funds and it is beyond comprehension why it will work so effectively. These people are Karl Rove’s wet dream and in addition to extorting their money, he will make sure the Party locals put some red meat on the ballot for them as well. Anyone who believes that God would prefer that they send donations to Rick Santorum and Tom DeLay rather than their local food bank, might want to reconsider their faith.
Christians who think this kind of pandering and manipulation of faith is disgusting, better start speaking up. The delusional fundies who will fall for this shit won’t listen to us heathens, so it’s up to those on the inside to show them the light. Maybe point out that if they spent more time actually reading their Bible and less time listening to preachers and politicians interpret it for them, our county wouldn’t be in such trouble, engaging as we are in unprovoked wars of choice and waging a war on drugs instead of a war on poverty.
