Under a Curse

Prominent right wing Christian Bryan Fischer, zooming right to the heart of our real problem here in America, from Talking Points Memo:

"...there is no number of live grizzlies worth one dead human being. If it's a choice between grizzlies and humans, the grizzlies have to go. And it's time.  Of course there is a simple answer: shoot these man-eaters on sight.

"God makes it clear in Scripture that deaths of people and livestock at the hands of savage beasts is a sign that the land is under a curse. The tragic thing here is that we are bringing this curse upon ourselves."

Yes, the fact that two people were killed by bears is a sign that our land is under a curse.  Listen, you ignorant idiot, if you want a sign that our land is under a curse, how about the fact that our economy has been destroyed by the depredation of rich Republicans, or the fact that supposedly religious people like you cheered when our last president sent our army to kill a million innocent people, or that there are packs of lunatics roaming the country fighting as hard as they can to turn it over to people who will destroy their lives as fast as possible?  No, two people killed by bears means a lot more than that.

God, how is our country supposed to survive people like Bryan Fischer?

"there is no number of live grizzlies worth one dead human being"

I could dispute that purely on who the one human being might be... but the whole zero sum proposition is stupid to begin with, and meant to persuade the mentally feeble.

If God exists, he put the bears there in the first place.
Then, according to the Old Testament, Noah presumably gathered two of them - along with giraffes, lions, goats, brown recluse spiders, komodo dragons and koalas - onto the biggest fucking boat you ever saw... so that they wouldn't drown - at God's own direction. Which boat, which came to rest in Turkey, then disgorged the animals who somehow found their way back to lands completely unknown to Biblical civilizations...

Which is a lame story but makes it pretty clear that God loves bears.

He doesn't love guns though....
What isn't worth one dead human being again?

What, Noah didn't take two guns on the ark? How did he protect himself against the liberals?
