David Obey (D-WI) Wants You to Know that He is Using the Government to do the Work of Jesus.
I just got a press release from David Obey’s office concerning the 2010 Labor-HHS-Education Appropriations Bill. Underneath the title of the press release and the date was the following line, in huge, bolded, and italic print:
” . . . whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.”
– Mathew (sic) 25:40
This is a particularly delicious piece of irony. Sarah Palin suggested last year during a prayer that the government should be acting in conformity with God’s will, and liberals went completely over the edge, twisting that prayer of humble acceptance of God’s will into evidence that Republicans are seeking to impose a theocracy on the country. Here we have one of the most prominent Democrats in the house sending out an official press release that expressly states that the government appropriations in the bill are being used to carry out the work of Jesus.
Let us put to the side for the moment the fact that no one on David Obey’s staff knows how to properly spell the title of the Gospel according to Matthew, and that the particular passage in question did not praise forcibly confiscating the tax money of others and distributing it to the poor. Where is the outrage from liberals and the press (sorry for the redundancy) concerning this attempt to impose a theocracy on this country? Where is the endless bloviating concerning this distressing weakening of the barrier between church and State? Why isn’t it a matter of great national concern, this actual (not imagined) attempt by a Member of Congress to force his phony religious beliefs on the entire nation?
Rumor has it that David Obey is going to have an opponent this time around. Yeah, it’s the guy from The Real World, but he’s also a District Attorney and an accomplished individual, and he could present a serious challenge to Obey. If you’re tired of David Obey’s attempts to force his twisted religious views on you, stay tuned to find out how you can help Sean Duffy retire David Obey.
