First, he is angry! Angry at anyone who is a Democrat, progressive, liberal. And he is angry about abortion, and “the homosexual agenda”, and feminists, and MSNBC. He is angry at evolutionists and scientists, and university professors and public school teachers, and unions, and welfare moms and taxes and Muslims, and Buddhists, Barrack Obama (the secret muslim Kenyan) and Bibles that are not King James versions, and pants on women, and dresses on men, and make-up on either gender, piercings and tattoos He is ANGRY.
Not only is he angry he hates all of the above. And his followers mirror that anger and hatred with protests, and bullhorn and rallies claiming to speak for this god….telling us all who he hates, and who he loves….
He loves them, of course, and he loves Republicans and Tea Partiers, and birthers, and Fox News and Glenn Beck and Bill O’Reilly and Rush Limbaugh. He loves home schoolers and the 6 day creationist and the Creation museum, and plain-looking women and manly men, televangelist and old hymns. He love segregation and people who know how to pull themselves up by their boot straps. He loves the very, very rich and large corporations. Capitalism is his middle name, as in “Lord Capitalist Almighty”. He loves America more than any other country and he loves how Israel treats the Palestinians. he loves how his followers treat the poor and marginalized and the gay individual. He loves how his followers despise the immigrant and people of color. He loves multi-million dollar churches and Creflo Dollar too. He loves Sarah Palin, Mike Huckabee, and even Michelle Bachman.
His love is unconditional, as long as you are on the “right” side.
This is the god created by the American church. This is a false god and we worship at his feet.
Then who is God? We will explore that next time.
