Obama Preaches- The Right Freaks

Obama made an appearance in church, and predictably, right wingers everywhere have worked themselves up into a fury.  Here's a typical example, from the dicks at Red State:

"While Obama may have been correct in saying that government mandated, shared responsibility is equal to the Islamic belief that those who’ve been blessed have an obligation to use those blessings to help others, he is incorrect to group in Jesus’ teaching, “for unto whom much is given, much shall be required.”  Aside from the fact that Jesus was discussing requirements from God, not the government, he was actually teaching his disciples that they were stewards of God’s gift of Revelation. Their requirement was to spread the good news of Jesus Christ."

Yes, even when he's in Church, he is practicing Islam.  Well, stupid Green Eagle, not having been able to figure out yet that, if it's on a right wing website it must be true, went to another source:

"The Lord answered, “Who then is the faithful and wise manager, whom the master puts in charge of his servants to give them their food allowance at the proper time? 43 It will be good for that servant whom the master finds doing so when he returns. 44 Truly I tell you, he will put him in charge of all his possessions. 45 But suppose the servant says to himself, ‘My master is taking a long time in coming,’ and he then begins to beat the other servants, both men and women, and to eat and drink and get drunk. 46 The master of that servant will come on a day when he does not expect him and at an hour he is not aware of. He will cut him to pieces and assign him a place with the unbelievers.
   47 “The servant who knows the master’s will and does not get ready or does not do what the master wants will be beaten with many blows. 48 But the one who does not know and does things deserving punishment will be beaten with few blows. From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked."

Funny, it never occurred to Jesus to describe the servants being beaten for not spreading the good news of Jesus Christ, but for abusing those beneath them and not taking care of their physical needs.  Well, I guess God isn't capable of saying what he really means, or maybe he has taken to speaking in a code language which can only be understood by those whose hearts are rotted with greed. 

Listen, it's no secret that there isn't a Republican that can tell the truth about a single thing having to do with Obama.  That's not what interests me here.  It's that they spend half their waking hours shrieking  about their love of Jesus and the inerrancy of the Bible, but as soon as Jesus' back is turned, they twist his plain words into an abominable apologia for their worst depravities.  This is the behavior of truly degraded people.

Someday, I'd like to see the story of how so many of them got that way. But done entertainingly, like, "Greed--The Musical."
