The Silliness of Religion



I was doing some reading and came across George “Goofy” Bush’s statement that, “God wanted me to be President….”


And all this time I thought it was a frivolous lawsuit filed with the U.S. Supreme Court.


Was I one of the few who saw Bush’s statement as something we should have been alarmed at?


I mean, back during the American War of Independence, my ancestor and others put their necks in a noose to create this country. They no longer were going to have a King or Queen rule them and their
country because “God” had decided it.


No, the founders of the United States had decided that “they” were going to choose their own leaders.


Not some “God.”


Not some religious leader.


The people were.


Seems that there are those who are opposed to what our “Founding Fathers” and my ancestor created.


Or what untold numbers have given their lives and limbs for on battlefields around the world.


So when I see these individuals who are frothing at the mouth about President Obama, I just think back to George “Goofy” Bush, and say to myself….


”God wanted Obama to be President…”
