I Hope "God" Is A Fat, Black Woman

There is a hypocrisy within religion and the republican party that I can't get past. One could safely argue that most extremely religious folks are republican. At least that's the case 'round these Mormon parts. And one of the base tenets of the aforementioned religion is Love One Another or Do Unto Others As You Would Have Done Unto You. They write songs about that shit, yo. So why is it then, that these conservatives are so quick to blast helping their fellow man?

Every now and again, when I feel I've sufficiently buried my rage toward the Mormon church I'll venture onto the blogs of former acquaintances of mine... just to see how they're getting along in life. I get but one paragraph in and my What The Fuck needle is already buried in red. The ignorance is astounding. Today there was one belittling Obama's energy plan. Okay... You ain't voting for Obama, fine. I get that. I understand differences in political opinion. But the shit this person so ignorantly cranked out is just so hypocritical and contradictory to the religion of our birth that my head nearly exploded. This person (who probably still assumes "The Mexicans" would just as soon rape her as look at her) is horrified that Obama wants to help people remain in homes they can't afford and spend tax dollars to help folks get healthcare. This person is further outraged that Obama wants to cut taxes for Americans who make less than 250,000 a year and "place a cap on the American Dream".

Now, she's entitled to her political opinion although I tend to think the blog post is a cut and paste job likely culled from The Romney Newsletter or an email Mom or Dad sent her. And therein lays the ignorance, passed down from generation to generation. But fuck the ignorance, for now. Let's get back to the religious hypocrisy. If one of the base tenets of the religion you like to shove down everyones' throats is help your fellow man, how come all you conservatives decry a government program to help folks get the medical attention they need? How come you shit all over tax cuts that help 95% of America's hardworking middle class? How come you support helping the rich get richer and keeping the poor in the gutter? Because you don't want to give your fellow man a hand up? Because you think your fellow man is a bunch of lazy, black folks taking drugs, shooting each other and looking for a free ride? God doesn't want you helping folks like that, right? God wants you to make money, hand-over-fist, so you can decorate your homes in Pottery Barn and drive your big fuck-off S-U-V's all around town. That's the "American Dream", right? If you think Obama wants to "cap the American Dream" perhaps you need to redefine what you consider the American Dream. Helping your fellow man and closing the gap between the rich and the poor seems to jive a whole lot better with what your blond-haired blue-eyed God considers righteous, doesn't it? So go ahead... pave your path to heaven by ignoring millions of struggling Americans who consider having food on the table and access to good healthcare the "American Dream." As long as they don't live in your ward, right? Don't drink coffee or take the Lord's name in vain and you're golden!

You think God is an aged white man with flowing hair? I hope God is a fat, black woman that knocks you on your ass when you die and finally figure out what "Love One Another" really means.

If my curse words hurt your ears and mute the message... maybe a scripture will help?
John 13:34 & 35; "A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another; as I have loved you, that you love one another. By this shall all men know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another."
