Woe to those enacting crooked statutes
and writing oppressive laws
to keep the poor from getting a fair trial
and to deprive the afflicted of my people of justice,
so that widows can be their spoil and they can plunder the fatherless.
What will you do on the day of punishment
when devastation comes from far away?
Who will you run to for help?
Where will you leave your wealth?
- Isaiah 10:1-3, HCSB
It is quite ironic that the far right (I'm obviously not talking about everyone who is both a Republican and a Christian here) goes around saying that hurricanes and things are God's punishment for tolerating homosexuality when the Bible spends a lot more time talking about how God is going to punish leaders and societies for oppressing the poor and vulnerable.
Anyway, this is my cynical election day remark. I'm voting for Gary Johnson.Posted by Kenny at November 6, 2012 8:37 AM
