I dunno, maybe that was some kind of sign, you reckon?

It’s difficult to inject logic into either politics or faith without being the subject of a lynching, but here goes.
There was a statue, 62 feet tall, of Jesus on the side of a highway in Ohio. People would actually pull over and pray to it. So last year about this time it was struck by lightning, caught fire and burned down. Or burned up. Means the same thing. Now, there’s long been a controversy in Christianity and Judaism and Islam over the making of graven images and with special notice given to a statue, picture or whatever of God.
Much Christian blood has been spilt by other Christians with Iconoclasm being one of the issues.
The Hundred Years War for instance. Somebody who was crawling up out of the Medieval Tradition and had learned to read, and noticed that there was a discrepancy of sorts between “Thou shalt not make any graven image” and the Church tradition of making lots and lots of graven images. So, that left no choice but to wage bloody, expensive and generally tragic War for a hundred years, hence the name. There were other issues, mostly having to do with which Christian king got to own which land and the people therein.
So, now, there’s almost completed, another Touchdown Jesus statue being made by the same corporation which makes the fiberglass Big Boy hamburger franchise statues. With the notation of “it’s lightning-proof”.
Here’s where logic should be employed…

If as the Bible says, God controls the storm, Jesus specifically, then it’s pretty likely that God has decisively said “NO!” to the statue of His Incarnation Jesus, and building another one right in the same spot and DARING God to strike that one with lightning might not be all that good an idea.

In fact, it might be considered downright foolish. And expensive, the last one cost $600,000 and the notion of fiscal conservativism is a big issue with Christians nowadays.
Not that the ones who sing the loudest praises of conservativism actually conserve anything but that’s a longstanding pet peeve of mine and y’all probably already noticed that it’s my pet peeve.

I was thinking of getting a dog and naming it Peeve so I could go around saying “that’s my pet, Peeve” but the humor would wear off after about, o, I dunno, the second time I told the joke. Dogs sometimes live to be twenty years old and I don’t think the joke would last quite that long.

But back to the theme, spending more than a half million to replace a statue that God already rejected, kind of violently and to the point, one could say “in a shocking display” is, I don’t know, maybe “squandering” as opposed to “saving”.

Mind you, it’s not my money. I do, however, wish and pray that people would stop doing things to make Christians look stupid.
In a related theme, a preacher named Pat Robertson has often tried to make White Southern Christians look stupid by telling the entire world that White Southern Christians all agree on his Hate Speech talking points, and that they’re not Hate but Love.

It’s incredibly insulting. I’m not any more than half white and I’m insulted. Maybe Brother Pat can go stand near that statue.

Wikileaks- US State Dept ties Haitian aid to acceptance of wage slavery

When the outgoing Haitian Govt insisted on the whopping huge $5 a DAY minimum wage instead of the three dollars a day being offered by the Corporate-owned U.S.A.I.D., their pet sellouts at State Dept, which has been trying to put a stranglehold on who does or does not do business with Haiti since, like, Forever, endorsed a U.S.A.I.D. report that Haiti wasn’t as badly harmed by the earthquake and thus, the Haitian people owe the aid money back.
Welcome to the Global Plantation.
I wonders, yes I does, how much Gov Scott Walker, Rep Paul Ryan, Gov LePage of Maine, Rick GoodHair of Texas, The Chambers of Commerce, and their Local Anti-worker ToolsTrained Monkeys like Paige, Patchsi, Janis Heuberger, Jeff Crank, Malkin, Tancredo, and the entire City Council, the Mayor and County Commissioners have in their own personal stock portfolios on this?
Slavery by low wage and high debt IS their main way of doing business.
How about it, anti-Union anti-Working Class PUNKS? Sound off on how morally superior and righteous you are in defense of Slavery.

Sarah Palin mouthing off with more racist crap

So, who is surprised by that? Anyway, she now believes that she has some kind of say over who can or cannot be a guest at the White House. This time in response to a Rapper. The AP (Arrogant Propaganda) News has it that “Obamas defending having a rapper as guest” WTF? There’s not a damn thing to defend. It’s THEIR freakin’ house, until President Obama leaves office. Simple Sarah hasn’t got a God-Damn thing to say in the matter. Hell, George Bush entertained Murdering War Criminals like Cheney and Ollie North. Reagan too. Hell, Bush even had HER arrogant racist bitch ass at the White House.
And the SUBJECT? A Negro singer. Wait a minute… how is that NOT racist again? Reagan had Stevie Wonder and Ray Charles as guests. People on whom Mrs. Palin depends for politico-religious opinions, like Pat Robertson, are only slightly less Klan-like in their attitude since the 60s… That crap about the Vodun connection to the Haitian earthquake, he used to say that about Ray Charles’ music. ALL Rock, Blues, Jazz, Swing… supposedly to lure White Kids into the Negro Lifestyle of drugs, wild sex… and voodoo. It’s looking like the RepubliKlan Party IS going to try to win the election with only White votes.

Think not? I’ve heard, not just in my lifetime but actually in the past decade, Rock music described as “Nigger Music”. Mrs Palin didn’t seem to have any objections to Pat Robertson’s Racist Bitch Ass being in the White House as a guest.
She really needs to get a tighter grip on reality and Obama needs to refuse to apologize or even answer to her or her Racist Freak supporters.
