Yep, every natural disaster is somehow connected with god’s disdain for American politics or hatred of ‘the gays.’

So Bachmann is right, God wants to torture us as a sign that we are supposed make big (Republican leaning) changes in our government.

Apparently there was a football game today and the Pats smashed the Broncos 45-10. Since he was beaten so badly does that mean God isn’t on Tebow’s side anymore? I’m not really a sports fan, but I much prefer when a team wins the quarterback attributes the win to their hard work and teamwork instead of saying they won because God was on their side. Does that mean God cares about the other team less? God has nothing to do with football.

Actually I heard it’s called the God Particle because the scientist how originally theorized its existence wanted to call it the God Damn Particle because he couldn’t find it but his editor shortened it to the God Particle.

Having God on the Democratic platform isn’t really as much of an issue I think.  The real thing that blows is the fact they originally didn’t put it in there and Republicans and FauxNews freaked out and so they put it in.
