Dysfunctional Family Seeks New Members

homeboyCome to Jesus, and keep it classy. Alabama Gov. Robert Bentley (R – Rapture) gave an MLK day speech in his newly conquered state of Alabama, and declared:

“There may be some people here today who do not have living within them the Holy Spirit,” Bentley said. ”But if you have been adopted in God’s family like I have, and like you have if you’re a Christian and if you’re saved, and the Holy Spirit lives within you just like the Holy Spirit lives within me, then you know what that makes? It makes you and me brothers. And it makes you and me brother and sister.”

”Now I will have to say that, if we don’t have the same daddy, we’re not brothers and sisters,” he said. “So anybody here today who has not accepted Jesus Christ as their savior, I’m telling you, you’re not my brother and you’re not my sister, and I want to be your brother.”

Hell, no, “brother.” I don’t want to be related to your and your clan of superstitious rejects from civilization, so thanks, but no thanks — you keep your weirdly incestuous relationship between yourself, your spirit in the sky, and rest of the crowd you ride with. And while you’re at it, could you reinforce the stereotype of southern whites as Christian bigots a little more?

I do think you’re being a tad unfair to the few non-Xtians in Alabama (they must exist, right? Yep. Several flavors, and some plain vanilla, too). So, this is what passes for separation of church and state in 21st century America? A representative from the same party that recently held a retarded read-aloud in Congress of the Constitution has the audacity to claim that people who don’t believe in their cult’s particular moral crutch are somehow not worthy of kinship? Such much love, such much unity. So little understanding of the 1st Amendment.

Douchebag. Dr. King would have kicked your ass out of that church for denigrating your fellow Americans like that.
