Gohmert: God Gets Glory If We Stop Iran Deal

Louis Gohmert, the dumbest man in Congress, joined Christian right televangelist con man John Hagee at the Christians United for Israel summit over the weekend and said that the Iran deal imperils Israel and that if they manage to stop it, God should get all the glory.

“We have made it next to impossible to stop this Iranian deal,” the Texas Republican said, “so if it gets stopped, as it should, God needs to get the glory and praise. And everybody that’s here with Citizens United for Israel [sic] will be the hands and feet to make that happen.”

“This is a horrible bill,” Gohmert continued, “and I know a lot of people think the United States is the sole superpower, we’re going to be here forever, but you know no country lasts forever. We have betrayed Israel so often … We have betrayed Israel over and over and we’re in trouble for that.”

Okay, so if you don’t stop the deal, then either God gets the blame or that means God disagrees with you and realizes that the deal actually makes Israel safer, right? No? Funny how that works, isn’t it?

    You’d think an omnipotent, omniscient being wouldn’t have so much trouble making the things he wants a reality, or at least communicating his wishes in an unambiguous way.

    AMERICA, FUCK YEAH! (Unless Israel says otherwise).

    And everybody that’s here with Citizens United for Israel [sic] will be the hands and feet to make that happen.

    What’s (sic) or grammatically incorrect about that? Okay maybe the not starting a sentence with a conjunction although that rule is usually ignored anyhow?

    Much as the Greek gods were just really big Greeks, Gohmert’s god is a giant Gohmert.

    StevoR @ # 3: What’s (sic) or grammatically incorrect about that?

    The problem does not lie in the grammar, but in the wording.

    Hagee calls his happy little group of fanatics Christians U.F.I.

    Hey! if you loved the 2010 SCOTUS Citizens United, but didn’t like all the pork, then try the all-Kosher Citizens United for Israel!

    Gohmert: God Gets Glory If We Stop Iran Deal

    This makes no sense.

    God can do anything being omnipotent. Why does he need “Glory” whatever that is.

    He could create an infinite amount of Glory and give it to himself if he wanted to.

    To expand on what Pierce R. Butler said, CUFI is a slick marketing operation that claims 2 million Christians as members (per its slick marketing Web site.)

    The home page features some quotations:

    “I do not know of an organization in the world more important to Israel than CUFI.”

     –Dr. Krauthammer

    Um… How about the Knesset? How about the IDF? Just sayin’.

    “I consider CUFI to be a vital part of Israel’s national security”.

     –Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu

    Then I submit that you need to reevaluate your national security policy. It depends in part on an organization that is more likely to be a liability than an asset in the long run.

    You do want Israel to have a long run, right?

    Well, yeah, but after it closes, they can always take it on the road.

    God Gets Glory If We Stop Iran Deal

    More commonly phrased “It will take a miracle to stop this deal.” And that’s probably a good thing.

  • pixiedust

    Does God get the blame if we don’t stop it?

  • StevoR

    @5. Pierce R. Butler : Ah, yes! Now that makes sense – thanks.
