Despite having already been withdrawn, those Houston subpoenas are now being portrayed by the Christian right as pretty much the only thing going on in the world, the key to understanding everything imaginable. Lutheran pastor Laurence White went on David Barton’s radio show and offered this amusing bit of hyperbolic bullshit:
White remarked that by issuing these subpoenas, which have since been withdrawn, Satan had finally “tipped his hand.”
“What’s happening is The Adversary, in his arrogance and his pride, has become so bold that he’s tipped his hand,” White said. “He’s usually the great masquerader who hides his real goal, bit in this case, he made the mistake of revealing his true agenda.”
This is not a political debate, White declared, but rather proof that the “godless humanism of the religion that has come to predominate throughout our culture” believes itself to be so powerful that it can now openly seek to destroy Christianity.“Christians may finally begin to recognize how much is at stake here and what we stand to lose,” White hoped. “This is about the integrity of our faith as Christians.”
Don’t you wish you lived in a world where “godless humanism” dominated our culture? Me too. The fantasy world that fundies live in sounds like a great place to me.
