In the Name of the Father, the Son, and the Ghost of Ronald Reagan
You don’t rock the boat, boy, you’d better behave
You gotta find the swell and ride the wave
Are you saved?
So, why haven’t you shaved?
Ms. Palin comes on the scene at the perfect time for McCain. She holds the beliefs of the religious right dearly, and says that the phrase in the pledge of allegiance, "one nation under God" was good enough for the Founders, even though the Founders had never even heard of the Pledge. Matters not. Palin goes to church. She is not in favor of abortion. She gave birth to a Down Syndrome boy. She is pretty. End of story. Challenge the IRS. God Bless America. Save us, Sister Sarah, raised up by God for a time such as this. "Sarah is that standard God has raised up to stop the flood." "The flood" being the unholy, ungodly liberal elite media and their anointed messiah, Obama. (They continually refer to him in jest as "messiah," trusting you will understand the tongue-in-cheek warning.)
Bad news, fellow Christians: (Yes, I am a Christian, just like Jimmy Carter, the man whose name you jeer whenever it comes up. You regard him as some sort of anti-American loser, the "worst President in history" who took our country down some horrible road of apathy and sadness that nearly ruined our awesome standing in the world. Thank GOD Reagan came about when he did.) YOUR COUNTRY IS NOT CHRISTIAN. It never was.
What? Are you going to tell me George Washington, slave holder, worshiped the same Jesus you do? Was he just a product of his time, unable to recognize that black people were equal? How might General Washington have felt about abortion? Might you forgive him if he saw the unborn as 1/3 human?
Let's take Thomas "Slave Banger" Jefferson, he who had his own customized Bible that discounted any miracles of Christ. Is this your brother?
Your tax exemption should be revoked permanently. What right do you have to tax exemption to begin with? You build giant cathedrals to your vanity, with cafeterias and bowling alleys, bookstores and state-of-the-art broadcast gear. Why do you cheat the very country you claim to love as you endorse, now defiantly from your pulpits, a particular candidate for President?
It's enough to make you sick
I can't pledge to the building program
or dedicate a brick
The "Faith of Our Fathers" was old, mainline Protestantism; Quaker, Presbyterian, Congregationalist, Methodist and Lutheran, which you regard as wishy-washy and watered down. Some of the Founders were Catholic, which you regard as a "Mary Cult." Many were, in fact, atheists. But that old stuff isn't radical like your faith. It's not bold like your faith. Your faith has its own coffee shops and radio stations and music industry and magazines. Your faith has its own book publishers and television networks. Your faith is active in the halls of Congress, influencing legislation and leaders as you "take the country back for God." But woe unto any man who won't tow the party line and instead preaches fire, like Jeremiah Wright. "Dangerous America hating liberal. Probably even a communist." More bad news for you, friends: the 1st Century church in Jerusalem wouldn't know you. They were your basic liberal commies, as "they began selling their property and possessions and were sharing them with all, as anyone might have need."
Your faith has become a mongrel. It is an unholy mix of too little scripture and too much patriotism, and you don't know where one ends and the other begins. You know just enough scripture to get what you want from your people and you love the flag more than you do humility. Your faith is pride - and God hates pride. You would sooner read an anonymous email forward and believe that Obama is the Antichrist than you would take the time to read the last book of the Bible.
Should you ever delve into the book, pay close attention to Chapter 18. You might find yourselves in there.
You have made Liberty a whore, and your faith is little more than cheap costume jewelry.
