Are You There, God? It's Me, Some Asshole.
Phew! The statute of limitations is up and the wingnutty "Virginia Tech happened because America forsook God" videos are rolling out. This American Family Radio production ropes Jeff Chamblee into reading some essay that's been making the e-mail rounds, framed as a letter to God about why all these campus massacres happen. The answer:
Reply: "Dear concerned student. I am not allowed in schools. Sincerely, God."Then follow some examples of things America's done to mock God, like:
"Then, someone said 'Let's let our daughters have abortions if they want, and they won't even have to tell their parents. And we said, 'that's a grand idea.'"If only Cho Seung-Hi had told his parents that he needed an abortion! Or something.
And no, I'm not sure why it ends with the first scene from The Enigma of Kasper Hauser. Maybe because Werner Herzog forgot about God's wrath?
AFR also has a straw poll up, and right now Fred Thompson is leading the GOP field. Go and vote for Mitt Romney so we can hear him explain how he's always believed that school massacres were the result of God's anger at abortionists and Benjamin Spock.
