In the name of God, or…
Are hypocrites misusing and abusing God’s name?
Obama’s God-less Thanksgiving Speech Draws Ire.
“Somebody ought to remind Obama that when Americans sit down around a meal today and give thanks, they give thanks to God,” said The Las Vegas Review Journal’s columnist Sherman Frederick.
Some find criticism of Obama misleading. “Wouldn’t it be nice if the GOP cared as much about jobs as they do about stuff like whether Prez said God in a speech?” tweeted Arianna Huffington.
ABC News pointed out that three of the GOP presidential candidates – former Mass. Gov. Mitt Romney, former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich and former Penn. Sen. Rick Santorum – also omitted God in the Thanksgiving statements they issued.
“Not that anyone needs reminding, but this Thanksgiving the Right Wing hate machine has provided yet another example of the fact that there is NOTHING this President can do for which they will not find a reason to attack him.
He gets Osama bin Laden after George Bush totally ignored him for seven years and they actually claimed (a) that he was still alive, (b) that he was killed long ago; but Obama waited to release the information to “distract” from the “birther nutjobs”, and most absurdly (c) that George Bush deserved the credit.
He and the first lady honor our veterans and the brave men and women who serve this nation, and the rednecks boo.
He gets Qaddafi with the assistance of our allies and without the loss of a single American life and they accuse him of violating the Constitution. It’s a good thing no one takes the Right Wing seriously any more.”
I hate hypocrites!
“Sincerity makes the very least person to be of more value than the most talented hypocrite.”
“The only vice that cannot be forgiven is hypocrisy. The repentance of a hypocrite is itself hypocrisy.”
“The true hypocrite is the one who ceases to perceive his deception, the one who lies with sincerity.”
– Andre Gide
CNN’s Gary Tuchman reported Monday on a fundamentalist Christian couple who killed their 7-year-old adopted daughter while practicing a violent form of discipline.
They reportedly beat their nine children regularly because they thought God wanted them to. Both parents were jailed after pleading guilty to the crime and the surviving children are now in foster homes.
Hypocrites and liars
Adulterers and corrupt politicians
All kind of criminals
Priests and mullahs
Schizophrenics of all kinds
What do all of them have in common? God!
They speak with God. They have God’s blessing to do what they do: to cheat, to lie, to kill, to screw thy neighbor. They are “God-loving” hypocrites who are quick to accuse others of crimes they themselves commit.
“In God we trust”. They commit adultery and then ask God for forgiveness; they commit crimes in God’s name and accuse others of not mentioning God in public speeches. They molest children and claim special privileges to speak to God. They commit mass murder in the name of God.
Hypocrites in Congress reaffirm “In God we trust” while denying health care to war veterans and 9/11 responders.
“In God we trust” while invading Iraq, causing death and destruction, and destroying our economy.
Hypocrites accusing Obama of not mentioning God while supporting adulterers and liars like Newt and Cain.
Bragging about being God-loving and deeply religious as they do nothing to help millions of children living in poverty.
Hypocrites that deny funds to Planned Parenthood and choice for women while ignoring children born into poverty and hopelessness
You disgust me!
You have no right to use God’s name to justify your lies, your crimes and your hypocrisy.
God gave us free will.
So don’t use God as an excuse for your actions.
You, and only you, are responsible; you are hypocrites…and you deserve your Karma.
