obama-jesus-and-satan

Who knows?!

We all remember the Barackstar’s rally cry of “Yes, we can.” If you had a pulse and didn’t subscribe to the Aryan Nation newsletter, it gave you chills.

It was the gathering of all countrymen. It was a microcosm of unity. It was the culmination of a dream. But did you know, it was also Satan worship?

Oh sure. While the Obamas traipsed out on stage to accept the presidency in Chicago, and the throngs collected in Grant Park, there was a pentagram spray painted in the grass and a freshly dawned goat skull where back in the Expedition.

What? You didn’t know?

Listen, the dude gets on my nerves as much as the other common man who has no more money to give to big business who has no accountability and spends our cash like they are at a swap meet (oh, did I say too much?), but this video causing many with a weed to believe the satire above is hilariously ridiculous.

Seriously, someone has too much time on their hands. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a child of the glorious 80s when backmasking was awesome, but this is something.

So, turn up your speakers, grab that funny liquid thing by your Velvet Elvis and black light, and prepare to get the munchies. Enjoy.

Call it complacency. Maybe altruism. How about irresponsibilty?

But can you call a recent Pew Forum poll about the environment and white evangelicals’ response – or lack thereof – “Racism”?

Just something to think about

Just something to think about

Probably not, but it makes you think. According to the aforementioned poll, and a story from WOW News’ Faithworld, white folk hanging around in church blaming everyone else for the issues with the environment, except themselves.

Only 34 percent of “saved folk” believe a plummeting ozone layer has anything to do with human activity.

Question is: Why? Is there a connection between salvation and a sanctimonious mindset of eco-responsibility? “Well, God will take care of it. Excuse me, I have to go to work now in my Hummer.”

Overall the Pew Forum found that a plurality, or 47 percent, of the adult U.S. population accepts that there is solid evidence that the earth is warming because of human activities. Most scientists have reached the conclusion that the planet’s climate is changing because of human-induced factors, notably the emissions from burning of  the fossil fuels that drive the global economy.

I’m not suggesting we all tie a yellow person… er, ribbon around the old oak tree, but maybe we all need to take some accountability with this environment thing? We do have dominion over this place, and before it stands still and Keanu Reeves is giving gruff voice and mad scowl (sorry, just saw the remake), we do need to remember:

The earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof (Psalm 24:1)

Or if you are slightly more cynical about how mankind has dealt with this place called Earth… littering, polluting and confabulating…

I brought you into a fertile land to eat its fruit and rich produce. But you came and defiled my land and you made my inheritance detestable (Jeremiah 2:7)

Either way, the proof is in the pudding, and unless you begin eating it, it’s no wonder you don’t see any harm in throwing that wrapper from Mickey D’s out your window when no one is looking. Guess what? Someone is. Tsk. Tsk. Tsk.

If you are concerned about being saved and yet, an exception to the previously noted rule, check out either Christian Ecology or the Evangelical Environmental Network. I’m not a tree hugger, just a Jesus lover.

(Sorry, that’s the best I got to compare with “Hell no, I won’t go” or other rally cries. Peace.)
