Klayman: On a Mission From God


I had missed this little tidbit from Larry Klayman’s speech to the tens of people who gathered at Lafayette Park to get President Obama to resign from office:

“Our strength comes from God. We take orders only from him. We don’t take orders from Hussein over there. We take orders from our God, not his. So consequently we are moving forward and we look for your support and your help.” He ended his remarks by saying, “and most important of all, we have God on our side.”

Okay, so if you fail to achieve your goal will it be because A) God doesn’t exist; B) God does exist but isn’t on your side; or C) God is on Obama’s side?

    “We have God on our side” is the most dangerous phrase in any language. When you believe that, you can justify anything. Murder, war, genocide, torture, slavery … all justified by people who had God on their side.

    `our God, not his’? I thought Christians believed that there was only one God, albeit maybe with 3 aspects? Klayman has his own god??? What’s his god’s name? Loki?

    indeed, what will be the excuse they use for their failure? Or will they simply scuttle away into the dark like the vermin they are?

    funny how their very own bible says that their god orders them to obey *every* person in power since their god has supposedly put all of them in that position. President Obama is one of those people. And of course these puny humans have decided that their god didn’t “really” mean that part.

    Klayman’s strength comes from his god? That would explain why he’s so completely useless and ineffective.

    Klayman:

    We take orders from our God, not his.

    Klayman does have a point here.

    There are thousands of gods at least. It could be up into the billions of gods depending on where you draw the lines.

    Klayman’s god is his sockpuppet who hates what he hates and tells him to do what he wants to do. There are millions at least of sockpuppet gods. They aren’t very powerful though. They die with their creator and know as much as their creator.

    “and most important of all, we have God on our side.”…

    Anyone who makes a claim like that should automatically be disqualified from being taken seriously.

    Millions of people claim that the gods talk to them. Those gods all say different things. Bachmann, Caine, and Satanorum all claimed that god wanted them to run for president.

    They can’t all be right. But they can all be wrong. This is another failure of xianity.

    “Okay, so if you fail to achieve your goal will it be because …”

    D) God is testing/punishing His people because of reasons. Truly the retribution against the wicked will be great, once God gets around to it.

  8. John Pieret says

    so if you fail to achieve your goal will it be because A) God doesn’t exist; B) God does exist but isn’t on your side; or C) God is on Obama’s side?

    D) God works in mysterious ways. But be we can be sure He is dilligently working to get Obama out of office … perhaps by just not destroying the Earth before his second term runs out.

    Strangely enough, despite some xians hatred of the word “evolution”, religions evolve and quite rapidly. Those eternal unchanging truths can and are sometimes dropped in a heartbeat.

    The current trends in fundieland are:

    1. Claiming god talks to them and is giving them orders. The New Apostles like Joyner and Cindy Jacobs have made this their central scam. A lot of others including politicians are jumping on the bandwagon.

    The incoherent xian god is getting more incoherent since he says different things to different people. And just as boring. The two most common messages from the gods are: Send money to my designated human servant, and vote for my designated human servant and follow their orders.

    2. Demons. Demons are way up in the (delusional) rankings. Demons are everywhere, doing everything, explaining everything.

    You would think the gods would be paying attention and keep their pets out of other people’s worlds. Then again, it does look like they got bored with us long ago and are communing with giant squids on Kpax IV or something.

    Gay hating is moving slowly down on the lists. Heaven is real and satan are holding their own.

    Oh, he did tell every one of them ( and a bunch of others ).
    God: let there be popcorn!

    God calls another one. I wish this god or another would just tell all of us at one time who’s anointed savior of America, what the mission is, and how will we do it. Any god that cannot get a clear and specific message like that to every American at the same time is not much of a god.

    God’s clearly got a crappy connection using his second-hand 1G handset (it doesn’t even have a camera!)

    They’ve learned how to speak completely in dogwhistles. I’ve got to admit, that’s an impressive feat.

    Hm? Wha? Did you hear something?

    And kill the ratings?
    Reminds me of a science fiction story I read decades ago, where live on earth is some Sufficiently Advanced Aliens’ longest running soap opera, which single-handedly explains all the wackiness we see ( got to move the plot forward, do we? ), including the many different things ‘god’ tells people.

    Klayman: We take orders from our God, not his.

    Needless to say, this is a bad idea.

    Obama’s god is far more powerful. He is the president and commands the votes of a majority of the US population. Obama controls the US military, DHS, and has the federal laws and inforcement on his side and trillions of dollars in tax money to allocate.

    Klayman’s god owns Klayman, a crackpot that people laugh at and a lawyer that loses court cases often. Plus a hundred or so Christian American White patriots who own more guns than they have IQ points.

    I doubt that Obama and his god are even aware that Klayman and his god exist.

    Okay, so if you fail to achieve your goal will it be because A) God doesn’t exist; B) God does exist but isn’t on your side; or C) God is on Obama’s side?

    D) Obama has iron chariots.

    D) wasn’t dark out,
    E) not wearing shades,
    F) only works in Chicago,
    G) D,E, & F
