Ben Carson, Dramatic Ironist

Smart dumb person Ben Carson is out on the stump, whining that his Christian beliefs are being shoved in the closet:

This past weekend, Carson told attendees at the Iowa State Fair that it’s time to stop listening to those who say Christians shouldn’t talk about their faith publicly.

“We have to stop listening to these people who tell us that we cannot talk about God, we cannot talk about our faith,” said the retired pediatric neurosurgeon.

OK, not a single soul has stopped you from blathering about your god. In fact, you’re doing it right now and no one cares.

“I wonder, do they realize that our founding document, our Declaration of Independence, talked about certain inalienable rights given to us by our Creator, aka God? Do they know that the Pledge of Allegiance to our flag says we are one nation under God, that in many courtrooms on the wall it says ‘In God We Trust,’ every coin in our pocket, every bill in our wallet, says ‘In God We Trust’?

So God is plastered all over the money, in the pledge, in the courts, in the Declaration but somehow He’s being pushed out of everything at the same time.

That, my friends, is magic.

About The Head Seminarian

I went to war, I went to father, I came, I saw, and it is a mess. I wouldn't have it any other way. Shitty people amuse me, people who act like human volcanoes fascinate me like fine art. Life is beautiful, and it is under attack in a manner heretofore unseen in history. I might be writing a blog. Yes, that's all I am doing, now that I think about it. Even I forget sometimes, so we're cool.
