God, the Republican Convention, and Tropical Storm Isaac (Satire Warning)

God, the Republican Convention, and Tropical Storm Isaac (Satire Warning) August 26, 2012

(I have to preface this with “Satire Warning” because my experience is that some people are tone deaf to satire and think I’m being literal when I’m not. Maybe “parody” is a better word for this.)

God is obviously blowing his fierce breath and spitting his fierce saliva at the GOP convention in Tampa, Florida. The GOP had to cancel its first day of the convention because of God’s judgment–a reminder that we are all sinners and deserving of of whatever we get.

Obviously, God is judging Florida for hosting the godless GOP convention which will (if it gets to meet!) no doubt engage in idolatrous rituals of nationalism and militarism and pass anti-poor resolutions and nominate a candidate whose proposals would create the largest redistribution of wealth, from the bottom up, in history.

Let’s all hope Florida and the GOP get the message. Let’s all pray for our country, that it will heed this divine warning and repent of militarism, dreams of world domination and return to compassion and national humility.
