Glenn Beck and Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) expressed harmonized outrage on Beck's radio program Thursday about news that the House might vote on the health care reform package this Sunday. Voting on a Sunday, they said, was offensive and heretical.
"They intend to vote on the Sabbath, during Lent, to take away the liberty that we have right from God," King said.
"Faith has been perverted," Beck responded, then repeated. "They are going to vote for this damn thing on a Sunday, which is the Sabbath, during Lent."
"Here is a group of people that have so perverted our faith and our hope and our charity, that is a -- this is an affront to God."
Interesting charge from the Beckster, since just a week ago his hypocrite Mormon ass was exhorting Christians to abandon their parishes and churches if their clergy talked about or were in any way involved with the act of seeking social or economic justice (aka - helping human beings in need) for some of their/our fellow Americans. Beck railed that it was akin to "Nazism" and "Communism".
And now Beck has gone and done a 180 degree pirouette and is frantically worrying his pretty little blonde head over the purported blasphemy which he claims is what will occur if the Democrats hold the Health Care Reform vote this Sunday.
First off -- I have absolutely no respect or trust in anyone who claims to know what's on "God's" mind and is presumptuously bold enough to feel that they know what "God" wants and what is best for "God." Of course that would apply to, a conservative guess, about 80% of the Republican party these days if you want to put it into proper perspective.
Secondly - Beck and King are both just plain fucking un-American assholes for using religion as a weapon to divide people. I'm so sick of these sons of bitches and quite honestly -- the day that they and their medieval movement is relegated to the trash heap of history cannot come too soon in my view.
