Women’s rights, climate change, the current cry for war against Iran, and the economy, they’re all hung up in the same place:the GOP ideology and their false sword and shield of Christianity. I don’t see how “love thy neighbor,” the only commandment Jesus Christ ever gave, could be honestly interpreted to mean kick thy mother in the ovaries, stab mine earth with oil drills, and bloody my holy name with the sin of war. It seems to me that doing these things in His name is the ultimate in wickedness.
As a result of this warping of religion, solutions to the issues that plague us all and the common sense legislation that could easily lead to better lives for many of us, is being ignored. I don’t understand why we are so dead set on cutting off our nose to spite our face. I read the blogs, the news, the statistics, the studies. I lay awake at night puzzling away at the patterns, and the inconsistencies. I keep coming back to a single shoe string holding this mess together, the GOP’s God.
As a full-fledged, card-carrying, God-loving woman. I am pissed. I am absolutely at my wit’s end at the GOP for using their interpretation of God as a reason to ignore what is needed for this nation. I am furious at what they have smacked the label of God onto–this idea that “God hates” is of supreme insult to me. How dare they commandeer Him that way? I mean, is it not truly narcissistic and blasphemous to dirty the idea of God with their agenda?
