What Are You Going to Do with These People?

Did you know that if you're a Democrat you're wreaking severe spiritual harm on your neighbors? Yep. You're actually assisting Satan in keeping people out of heaven, according to one Ed Martin, a candidate for Congress in Missouri.* Now, listen, we've been treated to a ton of insanity from these yahoos over the past few months, but as a man of faith and a follower of Jesus I find this unspeakably offensive. Here's what the guy said:
We're great because we created a place and space where people can be free. And they can choose Christ, they can choose to be faithful. They can worship, and they find their way to the Lord. And that's one of the things that's most destructive about the growth of government. It's this taking away that freedom. The freedom -- the ultimate freedom, to find your salvation, to get your salvation. And I think that's one of the things that we have to be very, very aware of that the Obama Administration and Congressman Carnahan are doing to us.
Normally, who would be concerned with this kind of drivel . . . but as you might have noticed we are not living in a place that's dealing with things "normally." The thing that cannot escape my attention is that this latest nonsense--and of course what else can we call it? It makes no sense, literally--is part of a pattern of extreme distortions that are passing as gospel truth (if you will pardon the expression) among the frenzied Tea Baggers and their hangers-on. Is not talk like this just the sort of rationale that's needed to justify persecution and extermination of the anti-Christs? Oh, and there's a lot more.

Take, for example, this sign which was put up in Mason City, Iowa, by the northern Iowa Tea Party:

Even fellow Tea Party nut cases thought this was going to far. But the thing to take away from this is that hundreds of thousands of over-heated idiots are abroad in the land who believe this shit. It's only getting worse, brothers and sisters. And it's getting more scary by the minute.

*I hate to think what this guy would say about such obviously lost souls as socialists and--great God in heaven spare us!--communists. I shudder to contemplate it!! But seriously, don't you think Jesus had some pronounced socialist and communist tendencies? And what about those communistic early Christian communities? Let's not be disturbed by facts, right?
