Seriously, I have to keep wondering, and this is almost always in the deep south, but why do these idiots have jobs? Why do the people in the south keep electing these morons to represent them? Okay, yes, the reason is because the voters are just as stupid as they representatives they elect, but I’m really getting tired of that as an excuse.
So in Tennessee, as should come as no surprise, the Blount County commissioners plan to take up a resolution begging God to forgive them for the recent Supreme Court ruling on gay marriage. Commissioner Karen Miller’s proposed resolution will grovel before an imaginary friend and promises “to protect Natural Marriage, from lawless court opinions, AND THE financial schemes of the enemies of righteousness wherever the source AND defend the Moral Standards of Tennessee.”
Well guess what? You already have an oath that you swore to uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States of America and, whether you like it or not, that includes the decisions of the Supreme Court. Just like the whole Kim Davis thing, you don’t get to have your cake and eat it too. You don’t get to draw a government check and then refuse to do all the things that you swore you’d do when you were elected to office. It just doesn’t work that way.
Now of course, this is a pointless resolution, it means nothing at all and talking to imaginary friends in the sky isn’t going to change the crappy conditions that exist in Tennessee. But part of the resolution also includes, get this, asking God to move his wrath to someone else. Yes, they’re trying to sic God on some other unsuspecting state because they’re properly scraping and genuflecting.
And these people have jobs. Why? Why are the people of Tennessee so damn stupid? And the people of Alabama? And the people of Georgia and Texas and Arkansas and Florida and the whole messed up lot of them? Sure, I know that not all of them are to blame, there are plenty of people who are pissed off at this resolution, but apparently, enough people support this kind of religious bullshit that these idiots keep getting into office.
Sorry, I will never understand that.
