Comment by Bertold Brautigan yesterday

Another stellar Texas powerhouse, the Rush Limbaugh of Houston, State Senator and likely next Lt. Gov.Dan Patrick was inspired to paint Jesus' face on the statue of liberty.

His comment on the artistic process:

I could not get the face right and used water to remove the paint on her face. When it dried and I tried to clean it up suddently [sic] the face of Jesus appeared so clearly. It struck me that Jesus face on the Statue of Liberty sends an incredible message that the real light that our country has sent in the past, and needs to send once again today, is we are a nation that stands on His Word This was only my 4th try at a painting I had no idea of how to paint the face of Jesus, nor was I trying to do so.

Here are some of his greatest hits according to Mother Jones mag:

  • Patrick told Mike Huckabee he had a Christian obligation to ignore Senate rules if the lives of fetuses were at risk.
  • Patrick quipped in 1992 that the Asian American journalist's show should be called "Slanted Eye to Eye."
  • Our students…must really be confused," Patrick said at a GOP primary debate last spring. "They go to Sunday School on Sunday and then they go into school on Monday and we tell them they can't talk about God. I'm sick and tired of a minority in our country who want us to turn our back on God."
  • Patrick tried to raise money off of Duck Dynasty patriarch Phil Robertson's comments about homosexuality in GQ, boasting that the bearded reality star was channeling another bearded visionary. "This is an exciting time for Christians," he wrote on Facebook. "God is speaking to us from the most unlikely voice, Phil Robertson, about God's Word. God is using pop culture and a highly successful cable TV show to remind us about His teaching."
  • "There is no such thing as separation of church and state.

Very nice collection of quotes, Rick!

5 out of 7 Founding Fathers agree.. RELIGION STINKS! ;)

From some of the Founding Fathers of the USA:

“Religions are all alike – founded upon fables and mythologies.” – Thomas Jefferson

“In no instance have . . . the churches been guardians of the liberties of the people.” – James Madison
“Lighthouses are more helpful than churches.” – Benjamin Franklin
“I beg you be persuaded that no one would be more zealous than myself to establish effectual barriers against the horrors of spiritual tyranny, and every species of religious persecution.” – George Washington
“The divinity of Jesus is made a convenient cover for absurdity.” – John Adams
