welcome to Rick Perry’s America
Before I start, I know this doesn’t really matter. But oh man, sometimes you just gotta rage.
Rick Perry is now playing to the lowest common denominator of American Politics: be afraid for your religion, it is under attack.
According to Perry’s new ad, Barack Obama, American citizen, Christian, all around seemingly good guy, and President of the United States, is waging a war on religion. That’s right. It’s not just a war on Christmas anymore. It’s a war on Religion. Such a statement is so preposterous, so fucking slanderous and careless and debasing that it makes TRC’s eyes red with seething anger. And that is not easy to do.
Says Perry: “You don’t have to be in the pews every Sunday to know that there is something wrong with our country, when gays can
only openly serve in the military but our kids can’t openly celebrate Christmas or pray in school.” AAAAGGGGGGHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!
Rick Perry, please, answer me: Which kids can’t celebrate Christmas? Honestly, where are they? Show me kids that cannot celebrate Christmas. Once, I used to believe in prayer, and guess what I did? I prayed in school all the time, pretty much anytime I wanted. You know who cared about that? NO ONE. We even had a Bible study that had a facutly adviser and everything, can you believe the injustice? So, honestly, what are you talking about? You are either lying, or drumming up fear in the Christian community to somehow make them believe that Christianity is being threatened by that scary black president who just can’t be trusted. Liberals are not attacking your religious heritage. Many, many, many, many, many liberals (including President Obama) actually share your religious heritage. It is a broad and wonderful heritage that includes liberals. Do you know that? Seriously? Do you? Seriously, do you?
If you are more even-tempered than I am regarding people abusing religion, here’s Perry, ruining everything:
