You didn't just say that, did you?

In another OMGWTFBBQ moment, last night I learned that Minnesota's own Michelle Bachman blamed the current economic crisis on the non-whites. Ok, not directly, but she blamed it on the Clinton-era bill that told banks they could not discriminate lending based on race or neighborhood. But keep in mind, no one has ever told banks that they had to lend to people with bad credit. They opted to do that themselves using legislation to deregulate the industry.

Continuing placing blame in all the wrong places:

In a September 25th blog post titled 'The Nation Will Right Itself If It Fixes Sex', Christian Civil League of Maine Executive Director Michael Heath writes that the financial crisis facing Wall Street is a symptom of America's sinful sexual culture, including the acceptance of gay unions.

"Our crisis is a symptom, not the cause," writes Michael Heath. " I am not saying I know whether this financial crisis is God's judgment or not. It is not for me to know that definitively."

Heath goes on to list policy changes that would make God "crack a smile," including: End abortion rights and defund non-profit groups supporting it, amend state constitutions to ban gay marriage and eliminate domestic partnerships and civil unions for gay and lesbian couples, and end discrimination against private religious schools and homeschools.

Ooookay then. It is not those people is less desirable neighborhoods at all, it is that we accept homosexuals and allow abortions. So it is not even a legal/legislative problem, it is god getting mad at us. Clearly. Why didn't I think of that before? Of course! Katrina, dead soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan, 9/11 terrorist attack, all because of the gays.

Oh, and whatever discrimination there is of religious and homeschools.
Not sure what that discrimination is, but it must be so, since a Christian said it. Oh, wait, I know what one problem of religious schools is - their science is shite. I looked through my cousins' "science" book from his xtian school (my two cousins are 1 and 2 years ahead in science, and their Mom said this school is much better than the one she had them in last year - I think they should go back to homeschooling or go to public school...). Holy-fucking-shit. Did you know that Kepler was a Christian? Two of the questions on their last test were about that. Also, an elliptical orbit is a perfect circle, just offset (so the sun is not in the center of the circle). Wow! I also learned that the sun and planets rotate around the solar system. Not sure if that was just bad phrasing (like cars go around a track) or if there has not been a mention of that whole galaxy thing. It was a poorly worded question in either case. I am sure there are some private religious schools that have a real science program. Just not that one.

He says that he doesn't know whether the financial crisis is God's judgment, but he blames the gays anyway. At least he doesn't claim that he does know that it is God's judgment.
