George Will Hates Jesus
George Will's May 5th column has infuriated the Far Right. And you know how the Talibanagain Christian Right operates: you’re either with ‘em or you’re agin’ ‘em.
It all started when Bush said “If you choose not to worship, you're equally as patriotic as somebody who does worship.” Gasp!! Blasphemy!!
Referring to Bush’s speech, George Will wrote: “The state of America's political discourse is such that the president has felt it necessary to declare that unbelievers can be good Americans.” He pointed out that nearly 30 million Americans answered “None” in a survey asking what religion they’re affiliated with. If all of these atheistic/ agnostic/ unaffiliated Americans were relegated to one state, that state would be second only to California in population.
Will was guessing that Bush was trying to undo some of the damage caused by the Terri Schiavo media circus. He added: “he and his party seemed to have subcontracted governance to certain especially fervid religious supporters.” Yeah! Tell it like it is! Remember, this is George Will, conservative columnist; not Michael Moore or Jane Fonda or any of those godless Hollywood commies.
He also pointed out that too many Christians are “scrambling for the status of victims.” Just because the ACLU tries to prohibit Christmas displays on public property, Christians claim that they’re being “assaulted” and “persecuted.” So far I haven’t seen any restaurants that say “No Christians” or any signs saying “Christians to the back of the bus.”
But no matter how conservative you are, just try disagreeing with the Far Right on one tiny detail, and — Poof! You’re a Moonbat. A Loony Leftist. An Islamofascist.
George Will has always been independent and unaffiliated with any political group. But he’s now been officially banished from the Taliban wing of the Neanderthal party. It’s a blessing, George.
