God Hates America!

by Ben Hoffman

If the right-wing-nut-jobs are right in that God has plans specifically for them, then God must really hate America. According to Steve Schmidt, Sarah Palin believed that Sen. John McCain chose her to be his running mate in the 2008 presidential race because of “God’s plan.”

It’s probably more of a psychosis problem. Right-wingers are delusional. Bush thought God told him to invade Iraq. These people shouldn’t be in government; they should be in mental institutions.

  1. I can’t stand that excuse when it’s conveniently used to force a decision upon other people (in this case, if you voted for McCain you in effect voted for Palin, too). No different than, “The devil made me do it.”

    Funny how “God’s” decisions can conveniently include an automatic book deal and speaking tour. I wish Sarah Palin all the best, but come on.

  2. Mr. Hoffman,

    Since I have not read Mr. Schmidt’s book I do not have all of the information available to you. So how do you go from Governor Palin being chosen to run for VP, failing to win, and then saying that God hates America?

    Perhaps, just perhaps God meant McCain and Palin to fail. That still would not mean he hated America. In our failures sometimes we achieve greater things.

  3. Considering that God’s Plan has royally screwed us over this past ten years, I think it’s good that we’ve finally just up and rejected Him. Think about it: It was God’s Plan that Bush become President. It was God’s Plan that the September 11 attacks occur (on this, both Christian and Muslim Fundamentalists are in agreement). Hurricane Katrina? God’s Plan–punishing us for the sins of Mardi Gras (even though the French Quarter was largely spared and the worst hit areas were also the most devout). So when someone says that it’s God’s Plan that they do anything, you should probably do everything you can to stop them. It’s pretty obvious that God really, really, doesn’t like us.

  4. Oh, and considering what God’s Plan has done to us since 2000, let us also remember that His son didn’t bother showing up when the millennium changed.
    Is it any wonder that 14% of Americans are Atheists now? And the numbers are rising every year? Do you realize that there are more people who don’t believe in God than there are Jews and Blacks? Is it any wonder when God’s spokesmen include nutcases like Palin and an entire church hierarchy that obsesses over the unborn only to hide the men who molest them ten years later?

  5. DJ,

    “Do you realize that there are more people who don’t believe in God than there are Jews and Blacks? ”

    Christianity has been around for 2000 years and Judaism maybe 3000 years. Blacks even longer than that.

    What’s your problem Dude? If you don’t believe there is a God, then everything bad is random, so therefore us Christians are harmless?

    Oh, by the way,, are there benevolent societies for atheists? How about pissed off ones? What happens to you atheists when your teeth fallout? Do you guys help each other out as you age. I bet you guys just throw Mom and Dad in the County Home, clean out the accounts, and live off Daddy’s money until your kids do it to you.

    “It’s pretty obvious that God really, really, doesn’t like us.” Where do you get this “us” crap Kemo Slobby? He just doesn’t like you.

  6. “God’s plan.”

    I am Christian.

    I have seen friends who have just lost their parent after a long battle. They often describe this as part of “God’s plan”.

    I have seen friends lose infant children describe the event as part of “God’s plan”.

    People who have lost their job only to find a “Dream Job” describe their situation as part of “God’s plan”.

    A destitute college player being drafted into the NFL will often refer to his story as part of “God’s plan”.

    That Palin would refer to this as God’s plan seems rather in line for main stream Christians. I would find it more odd if she said “I think that it is God’s plan that I don’t run. But heck, I’m gonna give it a shot anyway”!

    Don’t you?

    • I agree Pino. I don’t tread on people’s faith or presume to know their hardship – how they get through tough times is their business. However I believe it is a “convenient deflection” for many to excuse/absolve themselves in situations where personal responsibility is called for.

  7. AS:“It’s pretty obvious that God really, really, doesn’t like us.” Where do you get this “us” crap Kemo Slobby? He just doesn’t like you.

    Wow, the tolerance and compassion. I swear I saw you next to jebus while he was sermonizing on the Mount.

    Brought a tear to my eye, honest. :>

  8. The Arbourist,

    ” Wow, the tolerance and compassion. I swear I saw you next to jebus while he was sermonizing on the Mount.

    Brought a tear to my eye, honest. :>”

    For a God hating Atheist, you seem to know your Biblical figures better than me. Who the hell is jebus, and just what mountain was he on, sermonizing to whom?

    • For a God hating Atheist

      I do not particularly hate god Alan, just the injustice and evil wrought in his name. It would be like asking if I hated the tooth fairy or Santa Clause. It is hard to get the hate on for fictional characters.

      Who the hell is jebus, and just what mountain was he on, sermonizing to whom?

      I was referring to the fabled Sermon on the Mount that some Christians like to mention in defense of their religion as a kind loving one. From the sermon on the mount we get such ideas as ‘turning the other cheek’ and terms like judge not, lest ye be judged etc.
      Usually this sermon is brought up to show how accepting and tolerant Christianity is. Contrast this sermon with the Old Testament chock full of smiting, genocide and retribution.

      you seem to know your Biblical figures better than me

      It is always wise to study your opponents positions and dogmas. I could not have such a merry time deriding religion if I was ignorant of its base doctrines and systems of belief.

  9. Arbourist,

    I am familiar with the sermon on the mount. You still never answered about the name jebus. Until you mentioned it, the name was unknown to me. From what I have researched since then, it is quite disrespectful in it’s various uses in reference to Christ and the whole Christian Faith. Unless you used it in the old Hebrew context, which doesn’t fit.

  10. You still never answered about the name jebus. Until you mentioned it, the name was unknown to me. From what I have researched since then, it is quite disrespectful in it’s various uses in reference to Christ and the whole Christian Faith

    Yes, yes it is. But then again, religion is offensive, so we could call the whole jebus issue moot.

  11. “The Arbourist” It is in your best interest not to research the bible. Before Jesus died on the cross he prayed to God to forgive mankind for they know not what they do. If you know and teach falsely, that is an unforgivable sin. Sometimes its smart to be stupid.
