GOD Acts Out Again

The wrathful God of Ezekiel and Isaiah receives some well-deserved toadying from a grateful Mark Miner, spokesman for Texas Governor Rick Perry. Miner supplicated himself before the angry monarch on the Governor’s behalf, in recognition of God’s recent horrific oil rig explosion in the Gulf of Mexico.

“Behold, the day of the Lord cometh, cruel both with wrath and fierce anger… and a whole lotta sweet crude.”
— Isaiah 13:9

HuffPo:

Texas Governor Rick Perry (R) claimed on Monday that the oil rig explosion that caused a massive — and still-expanding spill — may have been “just an act of God” that could not have been prevented.

Which is exactly what secular Christian propagandist Rush Limbaugh means when he calls it a “natural” disaster. Just like the chain reaction that occurs in, say, a nuclear bomb detonation is a natural reaction.

Speaking at a conference sponsored by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, Perry offered his theory to a reporter who asked if events such as the recent West Virginia mine disaster, the financial meltdown or the BP oil spill may have been encouraged by too much emphasis on free enterprise and lax regulations.

Perry disagreed wholeheartedly:

“We don’t know what the event [was] that has allowed for this massive oil to be released,” Perry said. “And until we know that, I hope we don’t see a knee-jerk reaction across this country that says we’re going to shut down drilling in the Gulf of Mexico, because the cost to this country will be staggering.”

Even though the cost to this country of the drilling responsible for the impending and escalating ecological disaster will prove to be even more “staggering.”

As many have pointed out, however, BP has adamantly opposed expansion of industry oversight, and, perhaps most notoriously failed to install a shut-off switch that might have helped mitigate the crisis.

But of course, before the afternoon was out, Perry’s staff was busy sweeping his stupidity back under the carpet:

The Dallas Morning News reported:

The governor’s staff says Perry was not insisting that an “act of God” caused the spill. (He later said that he suspects a “mechanical failure” is the cause.) Perry aides say that he was simply making the point that it is too early to blame BP PLC, which leased the rig that was drilling the well.

“Your wrathfulness, the Governor would like to apologize in advance for having to deny giving you credit for the BP rig explosion;  I hope you understand.”

The eternal God is incapable of wrath and anger in the sense of these human emotions and as man understands such reactions. These sentiments are mean and despicable; they are hardly worthy of being called human, much less divine; and such attitudes are utterly foreign to the perfect nature and gracious character of the Universal Father.

      He’s probably distracted by co-founder Georgie “Boy-Lovin'” Reker who can’t handle his own bag, if you know what I mean. . .

      Hey, Dcap, nice to see your toasty goodness!
      Yeah, there is that ugly rumor, but I’m not buyin’ it— and not just because Rick teh Dickhead Perry says God is killing surly sea turtles in the gulf by blowing up oil rigs. If God had really pulled the plug, shit would just be floating off into space when our gravity disappeared; not to mention the atmosphere would be the first thing to go.

    Damn, if that guy kissing the GOD-FATHER’s ring doesn’t look like Goldman Sachs CEO Lloyd Blankfein!, on record saying the firm was simply doing God’s work:”

    No longer is Blankfein simply trying tell the world Goldman isn’t the root of all evil; rather, old Lloyd is informing us all that Goldman is a source of goodness in the world. The exact quote, from the Times of London has Blankfein professing that as CEO of the vampire squid he’s actually “doing God’s work”…

    Between helping run the world’s economy into the ground, and helping the oil companies pollute its shores, God must be mightily pissed these days…
