Dear God.

Dear God,

I’m so confused.  Rush Limbaugh said that you caused the volcano eruption in Iceland in order to punish the US for passing the universal health bill here in our country.  I know you work in mysterious ways, but why would you take it out on a small country that had no control over our politics?  Why is it more offensive to you that the US did this, instead of punishing the Europeans and Canadians when they started universal health care in their countries?  Why did you not do anything until the US followed suit?

Just curious.




“You know, a couple of days after the health care bill had been signed into law, Obama ran around all over the country saying, “Hey, you know, I’m looking around. The earth hadn’t opened up. No Armageddon out there. The birds are still chirping.

I think the earth has opened up. God may have replied. This volcano in Iceland has grounded more airplanes – airspace has more affected – than even after 9/11 because of this plume, because of this ash cloud over Northern and Western Europe. … It’s got everybody just in a shutdown. Earth has opened up. I don’t know whether it’s a rebirth or Armageddon. Hopefully it’s a rebirth, God speaking…”

Dude, this guy MUST be friends with Chris Butthead.
No, wait. The Butthead would've said the volcano was happening because God was punishing us for considering decent sex ed (what was it now, with "lesbian sex and anal sex"?) in the Utah schools. Yeah, a volcano in Iceland because of that. That'd be his style.

Yeah, God? What's up with that? Everything Rush says is right (he's been heard to say he's speaking for you, as a matter of fact). So it must be truth.

From my sister, who couldn't get the verification picture to download at her school. (My district won't even allow us to access any blogs at all):

"Ask Rush, Not God...he was the one speaking those words".

Max said...

To my sister:
I agree with you completely. I just wrote it that way as a sarcastic way of responding to Rush's implication (or my inference) that he knows what God is thinking.

Hey, Rush has some good buddies in the Muslim crowd. Did you read this in the Tribune?

Beirut » A senior Iranian cleric says women who wear revealing clothing and behave promiscuously are to blame for earthquakes.
Iran is one of the world's most earthquake-prone countries, and the cleric's unusual explanation for why the earth shakes follows a prediction by President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad that a quake is certain to hit Tehran and that many of its 12 million inhabitants should relocate.
"Many women who do not dress modestly ... lead young men astray, corrupt their chastity and spread adultery in society, which [consequently] increases earthquakes," Hojatoleslam Kazem Sedighi was quoted as saying by Iranian media.
Women in the Islamic Republic are required by law to cover from head to toe, but many, especially the young, ignore some of the more strict codes and wear tight coats and scarves pulled back that show much of the hair.

And the really funny thing is that as I was writing my latest post, I heard on the news that some woman at some college somewhere (I WAS busy writing at the time, details didn't seem important) is doing an experiment. She's getting a whole bunch of women together, dressed in their most immodest clothes, to see if they can instigate a natural disaster.

So, shouldn't Las Vegas just be wiped out by now?

It isn't?
