Ahhh the A-merry-can religious right, they are so persecuted and misunderstood here in the land of the free.
Consider poor Mike Huckabee: the man is already complaining that the "Stimulus Package" is "anti religious". Yes he really said that. Apparently Mike doesn't like some of the language in the bill which bans higher education funds from being used where divinity is being taught.
“You would think the ACLU drafted this bill... For all of the talk about bipartisanship, this Congress is blatantly liberal.”
We can only wish there Mike, but unfortunately they are not liberal enough. Now keep in mind folks, this is a man who almost became your president. This is a man who was and still is a major player in a major political party in this country. And his biggest problem with a plan that is the most important piece of economic legislation in our country's history is that divinity schools could not get funding. And Mike is not alone, quite a few conservatives are up in arms over the religious bigotry found in the O man's bill.
Now I want to be fair to Mike; maybe he knows something what we all don't. Maybe divine intervention is the only thing that will get us out of this mess, and if it is, we can't piss off the big guy by preventing funding from going to his schools. Maybe we should have put a few billion dollars in the package just for all things divine. Commission a group to study and to find the folks who could send up the best prayers here in A-merry-ca. We could get a team of religious experts (interfaith of course) and they could start a kind of "Manhattan Project" centered around prayers instead of bombs. Can you imagine the possibilities? All this wrangling back and forth over something as simple as money when the man [or woman] who created this whole "shibang" could just click his [her] fingers and it would be over. And since A-merry-ca is his [her] country here in earth. The one country that was created in his [her] own image, I am sure he [she] would have no problem hooking us up.
Why don't we listen to these religious conservatives more? Our problems would be so easily solved if we would just listen.
Oh well, I am sure Mike will run for president soon again. If he does, there is no way the big guy will make him lose. The next time A-merry-ca will definitely get it right. This is all just a test of our will to see if we can truly appreciate how blessed we are.
Thank you Mike, and please thank the big guy for me. I know he answers your prayers. And I can't wait for you to become our president so that he can answer mine.
