It is difficult these days tuning into the media without encountering yelling individuals who claim to speak for God and are more than happy to inform the world about God’s views on a variety of issues confronting humanity. For example, members of the extremist Westboro Baptist Church who are openly anti-gay recently protested in front of Jewish institutions in New York with signs that read, “God Hates Jews” and “God Hates Obama.” Several Jewish groups urged members to politely walk past the signs and pickets of the Westboro Church people and pretend they do not exist. After all, argue these individuals, even kooks have the right of free speech.
However, no one has yet answered the question as to where does God stand on issues like health care. If I take Glenn Beck or Lou Dobbs as authorities on the God view, the old man up in the sky is mighty angry at that black man in the White House who wants to restore Nazi death camps and kill the unborn. Sometimes, I get confused. If Obama wants to institute Nazism in America how come he gets the high percentage of Jewish voters?
I decided in the spirit of fair play to make direct contact with God. First, let’s clear things up, He is not in the sky but on the planet of Xul. He told me after listening to the inarticulate rambling voices of people shouting hate toward blacks, doctors, congressmen, and praise for health insurance firms, He thought He might delay a return trip to planet Earth. According to the Old Man, planet Earth is the only one He has encountered where people want to protect the powerful and wealthy and denounce the poor. “For God’s sake, He told me, why the Hell do you think I sent my Son to Earth, to take care of wealthy insurance executives!!”
In the spirit of respect for individuals like Rush, Bill, Lou, Ann, Glenn and the others voices of hate, I will not reveal the exact words of the Old Man about them.
