God Bless America. God Bless You. God Damn It. God God God God God God
God God God. Good God. God loves you, friend. My God is so big so
strong and so mighty there's nothing my God cannot do. God is my
copilot. God rules. God loves the sinner but hates the sin. God said
it, I believe it, that settles it. God said "Thou shalt not take My name
in vain." God also said "My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?"
E.E. Cummings wrote a poem titled "next to god america i . . ." and that
might as well have been the entire poem. Might as well have been God who
wrote that poem. But, so far, it appears that the Almighty Father hasn't
committed Himself to paper. Instead, this is what God did. God gave
dictation, in order to write the Holy Scriptures. Because back then
(according to scholars) God's Hand of Providence was too big to pick up a
pen and write the Scriptures Himself. [Which begs the question: Can God
create text so tiny that even HE can't read it?] Every shrewd capitalist
knows: if God had taken time to write the Holy Scriptures Himself they
would probably be worth more today.
The important thing is that God Bless America. The reason why is God Set
Up the Divine Right of Kings. But according to we Americans real Kings
are merely cute; not to be taken seriously. We The People Know that
Every Man Is King, and some women, too. The important thing is God. And
God is in control. The keepers of our Faith take God's Holy Scripture
literally, substituting only when necessary. For example, God no longer
tells us what to do through the rule of Kings. Not in America. That's
just silly, according to the wisdom of America's founding fathers, and
later to God. Today in the U.S. God elects Official Leaders for us
through a Republic, for which it stands. Once God chooses our Leaders
for us, all we can do is pray for them. Pray to God for them. In the
1990's this news troubled a few members of the Clergy and the Religious
Right Wing, who, when cornered, were forced to admit that if one voted
against Bill Clinton in 1992 (or again in 1996), one voted AGAINST God's
Will. If one thinks about it one should consider oneself as Blessed for
not being snuffed out like Ananias and Sapphira for going against God's
Will. Zap. God could do that, if God wanted. He could explode one
into a thousand and one pieces. Just like if one were shoved into a
giant human-sized microwave oven. God could create a microwave oven that
big. If God wanted.
In America God's Will was not so obvious in the year 2000. Who's side
was God on in the presidential election? Will God punish Americans for
trying to rule themselves? Stupid Democracy. You'd better listen to
George W. Bush, he executes people. He punishes them just like God
would, if God were Governor of Texas. God could be Governor of Texas if
If God is going to punish Americans, is God going to punish them through
a President George W. Bush? And if God did set up Governor Bush to be
our next President, why did God act so indecisively; a "statistical dead
heat"? What is God trying to teach us? I just know we've got it coming.
After all, God did say "Whoever spares the rod, spoils the child."
Every time we see a rainbow we are reminded of how God destroyed us by
drowning everybody with a worldwide flood. Oops I mean every time we see
a rainbow we are reminded that God shall never again destroy us by
drowning everybody with a worldwide flood. But (again, according to
scholars) that leaves God with other options. Which makes me think God
could (if God wanted) identify with Americans. God likes options. We
like options because God first liked options. God also loves Order. It
doesn't necessarily have to be tallest to smallest or oldest to youngest
and we don't necessarily have to sort folks by gender or race, as long as
they are sorted, in an Orderly fashion, that's all that matters to God.
Smooth machines, smooth transitions. God is like a technical engineer
who only troubleshoots when He has to. And He likes to remind us that
Guns don't kill people. He does.
Dear God: What are you telling us? I'm listening with my fingers to the
keyboard and my left ear to a seashell. I live in America, a nation that
claims to lead the world in freedom, equality and justice for all. And
the one thing I learned about my country this year is that in America the
candidate who gets the most votes loses the election.
Now everybody look under your chairs and see if your seat is marked as
"saved". That's right, it's come to my attention that God has marked
every chair as "saved" or "unsaved". Oh, and please remember that God is
the one who ushered you to your seat, so don't bother complaining if
you're not satisfied with the seating arrangement. However, you do have
the freedom to choose not look to see whether or not your seat has been
marked as "saved" or "unsaved". That is the important thing. Your
freedom. The important thing is Free Will. Oh, and also, the ability to
will one thing. And there are a few other rules, but in the end life is
what you make it. It's a free country. Right?
In America the candidate who gets the most votes loses the election. In
America the candidate who gets the most votes loses the election. In
America the candidate who gets the most votes loses the election.
