About one in five Americans combine a view of God as actively engaged in daily workings of the world with an economic conservative view that opposes government regulation and champions the free market as a matter of faith.And you can't teach these self-anointed morons anything new, because they already "know" all the answers.
"They say the invisible hand of the free market is really God at work," says sociologist Paul Froese, co-author of the Baylor Religion Survey, released today by Baylor University in Waco, Texas.
Most (81%) political conservatives say there is one "ultimate truth in the world, and new economic information of cost-benefit analysis is not going to change their mind about how the economy should work," Froese says.So God is out there steering the economy. Really. God loves money does she? Let me ask these fucksticks a question. What part of this passage in the Bible do you not understand?
And Jesus went into the temple of God, and cast out all them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold doves, And said unto them, "It is written, My house shall be called the house of prayer; but ye have made it a den of thieves." And the blind and the lame came to him in the temple; and he healed them. (Matthew 21:12-14, King James Edition)So these conservative assholes think Jesus was a free-marketeer? That the "invisible hand" of the market is God at work? And they think that Jesus would work to get rid of "Obamacare?" Was Jesus a moneylender in the temple himself? Is that how you interpret this passage???
I think not, fucksticks. I THINK NOT!!!! READ HIS ACTUAL WORDS AS THEY ARE WRITTEN!!!! What do you think Jesus was saying about economics there? What do you think he was doing casting the moneylenders out? I'm an atheist and even I know that the words and deeds of Jesus, whether they happened or not historically, were words of peace and comfort, not economic greed and selfishness.
You're sick and twisted vision of the words of the man you regard most highly is something you have projected onto him. They are not his words, his thoughts or his deeds. They are yours, fucksticks. They are yours.
