If there’s one thing you can count on these days, it’s that the Christian right loonies will be making idiotic predictions of the end of America — doom, I tell you, doom — if Obama is reelected. Today’s version comes from Jim Garlow on Tony Perkins’ radio show:
Perkins: Dr. Garlow, how critical is the Christian vote in this upcoming election.
Garlow: At the risk of being misunderstood, I am going to say it this bluntly: we have 61 days of America left. I know that sounds melodramatic to some, it sounds alarmist, Chicken Little to some people. But we have 61 days. If we do not see a change at this time, America will be set on a trajectory that will make it unrecognizable in four years; it is almost that today.
We have 61 days of America left. If we do not turn at this point, America as we have known her will be forever gone. It is crisic that people vote, that they activate, that they become informed and they influence every other people they can regardless of how unreceptive people might be to them announcing where they stand on the issues. It is time for us to be unbelievably bold.
And thank you Tim and thank you Tony for what you men do. When historians record what turned America someday, your names are going to be there.
No they won’t. Those names will be on a different list, up there with George Wallace as bigots who lost the fight to keep their bigotry enshrined in the law.
