Reading God’s Mind

“Oh my, what a disappointment you are to us and to God!” said the letter, addressed to Kinzinger, the word “disappointment” underlined three times and “God” underlined once, according to the version published by the Times. “You go against your Christian principles and join the ‘devil’s army’ (Democrats and the fake news media).”

Adam Kinzinger is a Republican Congressman from Illinois. His father has 32 cousins who join God and Fox in reviling Kinzinger for his apostasy.

“You should be very proud that you have lost the respect of Lou Dobbs, Tucker Carlson, Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham, Greg Kelly etc. and most importantly in our book, Mark Levin and Rush Limbaugh and us!” the letter said…

Oh my. It appears the wrath of a woman spurned is matched by that of principled Christians and God.

  1. The language makes me think there are many similarities between far-right Christian zealots and the zealots of ISIS and radical Islam. Not that they would want to think that!

      Yes, you make an insightful observation. I’ve muttered to myself more than once something about the “Christian ayatollahs” who seem to be a backbone of the far right here. I intend no disrespect to other religions in which the term “ayatollah” is used. Thanks for your comment!
