Quit speaking for God because if he was real it would probably piss him off.

Why do some people feel the need to speak for God. We hear it far too often. Whether it be one of Pat Robertson's ridiculous statements, or one of the multitude of other idiots speaking on his behalf, like New Orleans mayor Ray Nagin, some people just tend to know what God is thinking.

And while I am opining on the subject, why does he always take the view of those speaking for him? Every time somebody claims to be spreading the message of God, it is always their opinion that God is in favor of. Case in point; New Orleans mayor Ray Nagin recently said "God is mad at America". How does he know this? Did God come to him in a dream, did he call God? Oh I know, maybe God sent him a text message.

Ray Nagin thinks that we should not be in Iraq, and since he thinks this, he thinks God feels this way too. So of course, God must hate America. Barbara Bush has said that God wanted George to be President. If that is true, I think we should seriously question his decision making abilities.

We have all seen the pictures of people holding signs that say "God hates Fags". How do we know this? I always hear people talk about him being a loving god, sure seems like a lot of hate to me.

While I do not believe in God, I tend to think that if he had so much to say, he would find a more articulate mouthpiece than Ray Nagin or Pat
Robertson.

To all those out there who decide they speak for God. Shut the fuck up. When you say what God does or does not like, you instantly lose all credibility in what your message may be.

WARNING. The next time I hear someone express their views as the views of God, I just might get out a ladder and a rifle, climb on my roof and start taking people out.

Well, last time I called God, I did so collect, so he's not returning my calls, so I can 100 percent state I am NOT saying this with his endorsement.

1. People invoke God's name as they don't feel confident using their own voice, so must lend some sort of diefying power to it. A sign of low self-confidence, really.

2. The manipulator (also generally someone with low self-confidence) will invoke the name of God in order to take advantage of the segment of the population that is aching, searching, dying to find answers. If you're unhappy enough with your lot in life and have no where else to turn, you'll believe almost anything anyone says. I saw Howard Dean speak last year, and he said the reason the Dems lost in 2008 was that they ignored the christian voter. More than ignore....they belittled them. Dems, rather than listen to what that voter has to say, said "No, we would never do those things the right says we would do" which, in a way, invalidates what those folks are thinking. So, feeling ignored by the Democratic party (and believe me, the Republicans were well aware this was happening), the christan voter hears the Right empathizing and listening to them.

Was a very interesting point of view. You can lead a horse to water, but can you make them drink??

erk...."Dems lost in 2004"...I hope this isn't an omen, and if so, I apologize to the Democratic party.
