To all you Christians

Pastors, Priests, Church goers, Choir members, and Deacons. Below are the words of your Bible. The words you claim to be from God. Yet you do not follow them. You sit back and tell your friends and family whom to vote for, whom is godly enough to represent you in our government. You sit back and watch as the leaders YOU chose to lead us burn the State to the ground. You cheer as they use the power you gave them to discriminate (just as you did in the 50's and 60's). You cheer as they intentionally attack the poor.

You send up Roy Moore... who spends his time spreading hatred and fear and bigotry in your and your god's name. And you do it willfully, knowing that his message will not be a message of love and acceptance (like you precious Jesus offered), but a message of spite and vengeance.

You send up Bentley, a man who has broken atleast 3 (adultery, covetousness, and being a liar) of your highest laws. And you do not call for his removal. You watch him deliberately cut 85 million dollars from the Medicaid budget which is nothing but an attack on the poor children, the elderly and the disabled... the least of us.

You watch as Hubbard sits over the entire legislature pulling the strings to make these things happen. You watch your governor use his office to stop the investigations into Hubbard. You watched Hubbard lie and steal and sat by and let it happen.

Where is the outrage? Where is the anger? Where is the compassion your Christ showed in your book? Homosexuality never made it to God's top ten, but the men YOU tell your parishioners to elect have no problem throwing away any pretense of righteousness when they assume power.  Sure they say the words, and when they get caught they ask God for forgiveness. They need to ask US for forgiveness, after they step down from their abusive roles.

Sunday, when you go to your gigantic houses of worship... When you go onto the huge plots of land that make up the sports complex and the steeple and the community rooms and listen on 50,000 dollar pa systems, or watch on 50,000 dollars big screens, or sit on your mahogany pews covered in royal purple cloth... think about the commands your God gave. Think about all the people (90% Christian, just like you) who will lose dialysis, basic medical care, and life saving medicine.  Think about all the children you are sentencing to suffer and die because of the interference you have subjected them to. This is squarely on your heads.

You demand people that cowtow to your religious demands when they speak to you, but you care nothing for their actions. You sit by and pour gasoline on the trash fire that is our government. How many of you will sit by and watch family and friends suffer because of your actions? About 1 million people will lose access to medical services because of this action. And many more will be affected when rural hospitals and doctors pack up and leave.

Are you going to sell your pompous church holdings to care for these people? Of course not... because you are all do as I say Christians... You are all like the hypocrites... loudly mouthing your faith to all that can hear... while ignoring that they can see your actions and how hollow your Hosannas are. Be like Jesus, accept those different from you, help those in need, provide sustenance and comfort and care...  Because in my lifetime all you have offered is hatred, anger and imaginary persecution.

"So whatever you wish that others would do to you, do also to them, for this is the Law and the Prophets"

Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good."

Love one another with brotherly affection. Outdo one another in showing honor.""By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another."

But when you give a feast, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, the blind"

You shall open wide your hand to your brother, to the needy and to the poor, in your land."

Whoever is generous to the poor lends to the Lord, and he will repay him for his deed"

Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me."

Whoever has two tunics is to share with him who has none, and whoever has food is to do likewise."

Another Rant

We are about to cut 85 million dollars from the already failing Medicaid program for the state. Yet we have the ability to issue an 800 million dollar bond to build 4 new prisons? No sentencing reforms, no acceptance of the ACA and all the funds that come with it. We can't stop robbing the Education fund to supplement the general fund. We watch out leaders waste time on ridiculous legislation that they know is unconstitutional.

We watch our Courts stand on the side of hatred and bigotry and the most fanatical form of Christianity, with spiteful actions that punish all instead of including the "others". No marriage licenses for anyone if I don't get my way. How petty that episode was, and now Just getting out of the marriage license business so Probate Judges don't have to Sign a legal document in the course of their job. But now they have to file it instead... What's to stop them refusing to touch the gay paper?

We watch our neighbors proposing discriminatory laws veiled in the shroud of "religious liberty" and deeply felt feelings. We see the damage these narrow minded laws bring with them. From determining exactly how you are going to tell if someone has a dick or a vagina unless you fucking strip search anyone who has a bladder... To large corporations refusing to do business in States that codify their religious ideas and demands into local law. For such seemingly Patriotic people, you would hope that they would act more like Americans and less like Third World dictatorships in the Middle East. They also like to use their religion as a justification for horrific actions.

This is how you make an other class in the context of the law. Alabama has done it before... just read our current State Constitution: "The legislature shall never pass any law to authorize or legalize any marriage between any white person and a negro, or descendant of a negro." We are better than this. We are better than to allow something we have done before to happen again when we know it is wrong. Morally wrong, Constitutionally wrong, wrong in its reasoning, wrong in its justifications. Wrong.

But we have money for these pointless battles. For you to strut around waving your tail-feathers and your smug moral certitudes. Excuse me if I do not care to believe in your pleas to a higher power. Bentley is pious, and a liar and adulterer. Hubbard claims Jesus and could give a snake a run for it's money in a crooked critter contest. They find money to almost double staff salaries. To pay their mistress and give her husband a job. Gut the Education fund so you can continue to offer low taxes to attract all those businesses you haven't attracted. But those poor sick kids? Should have been whiter. Should have been richer. Should have prayed harder. Medicaid Cuts Pious Governor
800 Million
No Marriages

God can't hear you, but we know you are a liar.

Bentley is sorry... that he got caught. He has apologized for all the information you have heard, so far. He has gotten rid of his trollop, but kept her pimp husband. He might still be paying the whore, but we can't know that. Now his defense is shifting to the legality of the recording... instead of fixing the problems he created. He is avoiding questions about his attempts to block prosecution of his money launderer Hubbard. He is ignoring all the State funds he spent to fuck his girl friend. He is ignoring that he installed his friend into the highest law enforcement position in the State... to cover all of his illegal actions and to stop the investigations into those actions.

He asked God to forgive him... so now we should all just walk away... because it is between him and God. This doesn't involve us anymore, it is out of our hands and in God's hands now... What the fuck ever, Governor. You are a liar, you are an adulterer, you are a thief, you are as corrupt as they come and you surround yourself with people attempting to try and be half as corrupt as you. Right before all this broke loose, you gave your top guys 90% raises... let's call it hush money., because that is exactly what it looks like. You have even blamed same sex marriage on the end of your marriage... I didn't know Mrs. Mason was a man... but whatever floats your boat I guess.  You have funneled money to both of the Masons through their fake companies, your PACs, through funds set aside to help foster children... You are scum.

I know the Lieutenant Governor isn't better for the State, but maybe she will be so powerless she can't make it any worse than you have. And with you gone, maybe the investigations into Hubbard, You, Moore and now the University of Alabama (thanks to your abusing your ties there to fund your whoring) will move forward and some of your cohorts will get to stay in some of those new prisons you want to build. Maybe you will all get to shack up in an overfilled piece of shit prison cell.. be fed nothing but bread and water... like all the non violent prisoners you allow to rot in our horrific State prison system. Wouldn't that be the definition of Justice, sir?

Make appeals to your God all you want... I'm am sure he will impart the same wisdom he imparted when you were crying out to him while balls deep in Mrs. Mason. It is your actions that brought you here. It is your choices that lead our State to sit and mock you and our Capitol.. as Montgomery Burns. Your pleas to an imaginary fraud of a God is cute, and it will play well to those that voted for you... because they are ignorant sheep... too indoctrinated into the ignorance of religion to see the naked emperor... they agree that your clothes are beautiful and appropriate... But you and I and many more see the naked truth of your hypocrisy, your lies and your impotence. Get out, sir, you are no longer able to do your duties... Mrs. Mason is gone... who will make decisions for you now?
