Does Collecting Make You Feel Dirty?
Turning Around
In these trying times, it's comforting to know that the God-fearing Conservatives beset on every side by liberal inanity still have the courage to speak out. After reading this piece from The Conservative Voice, I realized just how wrong my thinking about the situation in New Orleans has been. This is the sentence that triggered my conversion: "How can one person by the name of G. W. Bush be expected to give back in three days what has been stolen for many decades of spiritual neglect and willful robbing a nation of it's moral compass! " I mean, Jesus probably could have managed it, but he was the son of God and not the son of a Bush. But whether I'm safe in the hands of the former or the latter, its wonderful to feel my worries fade into wisps of memory. My heart can barely contain it's joy.

have to say, your religious people are pretty wild. religion in the uk is a sort of minority hobby, it's bizarre to us when people take it that seriously. maybe it is a mental construct of god as an english gent that gives us our off hand approach. 'yes, that *god*, very very nice chap. works awfully hard. another gin and tonic?'

Ugh. My favorite part of this article was when the Voice blamed a) the residents of New Orleans and b) the Mayor, who is "no Mayor Guiliani". Because, y'know, in a national disaster, the local response is the most critical. Despite having no infastructure, manpower or organizational ability to deal with the crisis. So there. I too have seen the light, and know the coming of the rapture.
