    God don't like ugly confused me for a while though since I first thought it was about God not liking "ugly" people in a beauty myth sense of the word.

    But then it was explained to me that it means God does not like ugly behavior, especially by people who think they can get away with something and no one can stop them.

    it was cited whenever the powerful got their comeuppance after thinking the people they hurt were powerless to do anything about the ugly behavior we were subjected to.

    I couldn't do much to stop Rmoney on my own.  But he lied and cheated and took people's jobs and pensions and made money off people's misery, and laughed at them and belittled them along the way, and belonged to a church that said my kind were not worthy of spiritual leadership, and then he had the nerve to ask God to give him the desire of his heart.

    Nuh-unh.  God don't like ugly!

      I would never denigrate the true discrimination that the Mormon church practiced against African Americans, but I do think Mitt has taken it to a whole new level.  It's just about every "kind" of people that he thinks are unworthy.  In the end, that is probably most responsible for his defeat.  His total disregard for just about everyone oozed from every pore and especially from his pie hole.  A post-election tweet said it best:

      Ben Domenech:  "Who knew nominating someone ridiculously unlikable would create such a result?"   (my bold)

        he didn't like most of the American people either.

        meanwhile, Barack Obama loves us back!!!
