    God exists when any god worthy of respect, even worship is nothing like the evil god that the right-wing believers who falsely call themselves "Christian" have invented for themselves.

    The GOP is the party of mammon. They mock what Jesus taught.

      in too many minds, that phrase means you better be afraid, very afraid, of God. God is apparently very into holding grudges, punishing everyone for the transgressions of a few (teh Gaze caused Katrina!), and he loves him some greed and unnecessary war.

      Indeed, God comes across as nothing so much as an abusive parent.  A parent who must be obeyed, and for whom one must force others to obey, lest that group punishment be leveled once again. His love is only evidenced at some point in the future, after death. Always promised, never delivered.
      It's pathetic, twisted, and poisonous all at once.

      I was raised Catholic, so the visage of God as a rather cruel dude is not entirely foreign, but we never got the message he was so intolerant and hateful.

      R-Money/R-Ayn, the ENRON Ticket, is not a campaign; it's a hostile takeover bid. UPDATE: a failed takeover bid
