Rick Scarborough has organized the latest of many crusades to make America bow down to their twisted theocratic vision, this time calling for “40 Days to Save America.” These crusades are big moneymakers and go back a long way, at least to the America for Jesus rallies put together by Falwell in the early 80s. And this language cracks me up:
We fully understand and are grateful for the fact that America was birthed first in your heart. We acknowledge that America has been a blessed nation above all the nations of the world. Hallelujah!
But we also acknowledge that we have forgotten as a people that it was you and your laws that made this country the land of freedom and opportunity that has been the envy of the world for more than two hundred years. Dear Lord, forgive us of our pride and apathy that has allowed men to call good, evil; and evil, good. We acknowledge that we have grown calloused to the daily deluge of sinful activity, degradation and speaking that has become the routine in American life, and we repent.
Reignite our love for purity and holiness, and create in us a will to initiate the changes in our society that will allow you to once again bless our beloved America.
I think this is the result of the religious right’s favorite ignorance-only sex education, they think things are “birthed” in God’s heart. As Right Wing Watch points out, the endorsers and board members of this effort are a Who’s Who of crazy and stupid.
