God wants Obamacare repealed …

Isn’t amazing how rightwingers always happen to know just what God wants, and stranger still, that it conveniently happens to agree with what the rightwingers want, too:

TPM– House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan (R-WI) said Sunday that ‘Obamacare’ should be repealed because the rights of individuals come from God.

“I think this at the end of the day is a big philosophy difference,” Ryan told ABC’s “This Week.” “We disagree with the notion that our rights come from government, that the government can now grant us and define our rights. Those are ours, they come from nature and God, according to the Declaration of Independence – a huge difference in philosophy.”

So, rights come from God, and therefore … no healthcare for you!  Not sure how that follos but WTF, this is great. So easy. State something comes form God, followed by the desired policy. Energy comes from God, so no more fracking! Punishment comes from God, everyone out of prison! And if all laws come from God, no more Congress! I guess Paul Ryan will have to find a real job.

It could be worse. As Raven points out in comments “Oh well, at least Ryan’s sockpuppet god didn’t tell him to hijack a plane and slam it into a skyscraper.”

    God so hated the SCOTUS decision that he smote the East Coast with bad weather. I haven’t bothered to check the timing to see if that’s possible, but it seems like something he would have done. He’s a bad ass like that.

    (Actually, John Roberts is headed to the island of Malta, so if an earthquake doesn’t shake that spot into the Atlantic I think we can assume that the Christian god’s pretty happy with the decision. Should be a fair test.)

    Ryan the demogogue:

    Those are ours, they come from nature and God, according to the Declaration of Independence – a huge difference in philosophy.”

    Is that why Ryan’s Catholic religion used to burn people alive on stacks of firewood for exercizing their freedom of speech and freedom of religion?

    And why the Catholic church is a totalitarian mind control cult ruled by one old man who dictates everything?

    What a hypocrite!!!

    I’m so tired of the people who claim to hear the voices of the gods in their heads. The gods talk to millions of people. And they say completely different things to all of them.

    Oh well, at least Ryan’s sockpuppet god didn’t tell him to hijack a plane and slam it into a skyscraper. Hmmm, well at least I hope not.

    No no nonononono! You see, we need an old timey prophet to divine God’s will– how else will the unsophisticated among us know what He wants?

    Clearly, this is a job for Paul Ryan!

    That would be one hell of a temblor to put Malta into the Atlantic…

    blindrobin at # 6 – well, why not? This god guy seems to like a lot of collateral damage.

    But perhaps Randomfactor fell victim to the might Tpyos, and meant to say that Roberts & a cohort of innocent bystanding Maltese would end up in the soggy rubble of Atlantis

    Are you sure about that?
