A bold witness to lift our faith..

I must confess, Dearly Beloved Sinners, that the news of Obama’s health reforms being passed by the House has hurt me deeply. Sure there’s still the very real hope of things not getting through the Senate, but it’s the principle of universal health care that troubles me so. It’s the idea of the great and proud nation that was once America becoming a place where less affluent citizens are not made to suffer needlessly as a result of their inability to afford the kind of health care people in most other countries take for granted which keeps causing my righteous old eyes to brim with tears.

Don’t people realise how important it is to preserve god-given barbaric inequalities? Don’t they even care about the compassionate medical insurance companies’ right to squeeze huge profits out of others’ suffering – albeit with the help of hefty tax subsidies? Don’t they see that making people incapable of paying a decent tithe endure sub-standard treatment and needless agony needs to be at the heart of a Christian nation’s values?

At times of grief such as these I often find comfort in meditating upon the inspirational words and actions of other Bible Believers, and in this instance my mind has been cast back to last May, when, like me, a sweet and honest beauty queen dared to bear witness before a false and deceitful world.

That’s right, who better to contemplate when it seems like there is no truth left in the world than Carrie Prejean; and there’s no shortage of fine Conservative bloggers who help brighten the darkness by recalling her example. Take “PastorBlaster” at ”I Smiteth Thee With the Holy Rock of Truth” (how could I ever have overlooked a blog name that catchy in favor of “GAFCON”???), who reminds us of the “fine outstanding young person who willingly stood tall in a situation where she knew she would be vilified by a liberal media”, who “grew up in an evangelical Christian home in Vista, California and is currently a senior at San Diego Christian College, a small, evangelical liberal arts college located in El Cajon, California”, and who “attends The Rock Church, where she volunteers with their outreach ministries such as Luv-em-Up Ministries in El Cajon, where she volunteers with members with developmental disabilities.

Or the wonderful show of strength from the gang at Jesus is Lord: A Worshipping Christian’s Blog (another great name!) who so clearly spoke in the Spirit when they said “After the initial fire is past, she will be hugely rewarded by our almighty God! I have a feeling she will be a huge spokesperson in the name of Jesus! Hallelujah!!” – a prophesy confirmed by Christian Girl Advice WeUsed2BU (I swear I’m not making any of these up), who quite correctly say “Carrie and her testimony are like the kingdom she represents—a priceless pearl.

Honestly, nothing lifts a saddened spirit as thoroughly as being reminded of this woman’s sincere faith. There’s certainly no doubt regarding how blessed the developmentally delayed clients of Luv-em-up Ministries are, and just thinking about her example should make us all feel almost as blessed ourselves. But now you’ll have to excuse me: Bishop Quinine is calling me to go over to his desk and see some pictures and a video he’s just downloaded...

I’m Father Christian and I teach the Bible.

All I can say, is ¨thank God she is a heterosexual and can be saved from the vileness of her own sexual instigating/degradation (not to mention the flat out stupidity which I suppose has nothing to do with spirituality but ought be discussed with her by that brilliant Gay Antagonist Gaggie Gallagher)...AND, you are so helpful in pointing out the wisdom and ¨Green¨ solution approach to dealing with the poor sick...I see it all the time, they simply die and have no care...gives lots of work to the durdge brass band that plays behind the tiny white coffins (and the larger gold spray painted pine ones) as they move towards the Church on the Towne square...provides lots of good exercise as they carry those ¨cajas on their shoulders to Mass and then the Cemetery a mile beyond.

As Carrie and Gaggie quack on and on...

Such an astute man of the cloth should be able to tell fact from fiction. Why surely the wench has been set up. The fotos and video the good bishop has found are all the work of the MadPriest. He is the WonderMaker of Photoshoppies. MP could put your own mother in a video in bed with Jonathan Rhys Meyers, if you were so inclined for that particular fetish!

I do not believe that my mother was attracted to dwarfs, David.

I hope that is not a short joke Rabbit. Most of us in this world are not as tall as you of European stock. The lad is certainly not ugly.

However I think the most attractive is Henry Cavill who plays Lord Suffolk, Charles Brandon.

I clicked on the WeUsedToBU website. I wished I hadn't. What are the women meant to do with the hand mike on the left hand side?

Do they send in a video of it?

In regards to Ms. Prejean's film debut is concerned, from what I understand, it involves her, um, er, "pleasuring" herself, which, according to God's Holy Word, is only wrong for men. Therefore, I believe she is still doing God's Will.

I am, however, disturbed that the word verification for this comment is likeers. Clean it up. Blogger!

Padre Mickey said...

I apologise for the grammatical errors in the first sentence of my post. I refuse to "preview" as I believe that "the Spirit will give you the words to comment" and refuse to second guess el Santo Espíritu.

I am disturbed, once again, that the word verification is grugg.

You'll have the last laugh come the next mass extinction, David, when you-all can get down burrows and we can't.
