Savior From the Loon Star State

Comparisons of  Rick Perry to Monkey Boy don’t do justice to the entertainment value the present Governor and presidential hopeful offers.  If you like Palin, you’ll LOVE Perry.

On Thursday, campaigning in Portsmouth, NH he said to a young boy , “I hear your mom was asking about evolution.  That’s a theory that is out there – and it’s got some gaps in it.”

He added: “In Texas we teach both Creationism and Evolution in our public schools — because I figure you’re smart enough to figure out which one is right.”  [via]

We know he disbelieves in “manmade global warming,” and accuses scientists of manipulating data to reach conclusions they like and for financial gain [via] .  (In response, Fellow GOP presidential contender Jon Huntsman responded to Perry’s comments via Tweet on Thursday: “To be clear. I believe in evolution and trust scientists on global warming. Call me crazy.”   With that crackpot attitude, guess who doesn’t have a chance to win the ‘Pubs nomination?)

And we appreciate how, citing his Christian values, he opposes pornography and abortion, despite his shrewd 1995 investment in Movie Gallery corporation, whose productions include such gems as “Teens With Tits,” “Bisexual Barebacking Vol. 1” or “Big Tit Brotha Lovers 6.” [via]  But yo — bidness is bidness, and ‘Pubs say gubmint should be run more like bidness.

But most amusing by far is the governor’s heartfelt (if primitive) faith in the higher power preached by a cult of Christian fanatics whose ideological inclination makes Mississippi snake handlers look sophisticated.

The NRA, and Perry’s goal is to infiltrate government at all levels and believe it is their God given duty to reign over what they call the “Seven Mountains” of society: family, religion, arts and entertainment, media, government, education, and business. These are the nerve centers of society that God (or his people) must control…. The NAR believes we are in a second coming of prophets and that Texas is “The Prophet State” anointed by God to be the next wave of apostles, and in some hopes, Rick Perry as the prophet.  — Newser

There’s even more here. These folks are genuinely, truly fuckin Pluto:

The movement’s top prophets and apostles believe they have a direct line to God. Through them, they say, He communicates specific instructions and warnings. When mankind fails to heed the prophecies, the results can be catastrophic: earthquakes in Japan, terrorist attacks in New York, and economic collapse. On the other hand, they believe their God-given decrees have ended mad cow disease in Germany and produced rain in drought-stricken Texas.

Their beliefs can tend toward the bizarre. Some consider Freemasonry a “demonic stronghold” tantamount to witchcraft. The Democratic Party, one prominent member believes, is controlled by Jezebel and three lesser demons. Some prophets even claim to have seen demons at public meetings. They’ve taken biblical literalism to an extreme. In Texas, they engage in elaborate ceremonies involving branding irons, plumb lines and stakes inscribed with biblical passages driven into the earth of every Texas county.

Rick Perry is their man, and he in turn embraces these lunatics.  They were influential in “The Response” carnival of state-sanctioned religion Perry starred in this month, and he’s had lay-hands-on prayer sessions with them in his office.

If they simply professed unusual beliefs, movement leaders wouldn’t be remarkable. But what makes the New Apostolic Reformation movement so potent is its growing fascination with infiltrating politics and government. The new prophets and apostles believe Christians—certain Christians—are destined to not just take “dominion” over government, but stealthily climb to the commanding heights of what they term the “Seven Mountains” of society, including the media and the arts and entertainment world. They believe they’re intended to lord over it all. As a first step, they’re leading an “army of God” to commandeer civilian government.

In Rick Perry, they may have found their vessel. And the interest appears to be mutual.

I recommend we keep an eye on this fascinating rejection of everything American, educated, and civilized, but here’s what stands out: Where is the scrutiny of the relationship between Perry and the NAR, comparable to the character assassination conducted by the right wing on BHO and Rev Jeremiah White?  How come that  allegedly unholy anti-American alliance, which wingnuts deployed to scare white middle America into soiled britches and sleepless nights, was headline news daily, and the Perry/NAR covenant in hell isn’t even noted?

Must be that right-wing lamestream media conspiracy everybody knows about.

Have a great weekend.  And say your prayers — Rick Perry is watching.

    This is God speaking. Hmm…I’ve never heard of these guys, ergo, I do not endorse this message.

    Talk to the “Other Guy.” It sounds like they belongs with him.

    Peace and blah, blah, blah.

    • Neil, a Christian Soul says:

      This, too, is blasphemy, and whoever you are you’re going to hell.

      • God says:

        Damn it Bro…I’M GOD. DO NOT MOCK ME.

        I’ve already arranged free passage for you and your family to the “Warm Place.”

        It’s nice there this time of year.


  2. Neil, a Christian Soul says:

    You misunderstand the mission and intentions of the NAR, whose spiritual programs aim at cleansing and purifying our souls so that we may once again walk with the Lord and earn His grace. The group’s leaders are intelligent and worldly men who recognize in these times the Lord’s Way must be reinforced is public and political forums, using media and government, to complement spiritual and church-based efforts.

    Yes, Rick Perry shares these beliefs, and his presidency, should God choose it for him, will devote efforts to bring these measures about.

    You. on the other hand, are going to hell.

  3. Dear Writer: Yes, Neil is correct. You ARE going to Hell.

    Thank you Neil and holy blessings

    Even before reviewing this I was put off by the way Rick Perry flaunts his religion, and defiantly shows a lack of regard and respect for the Constitution, let alone Americans who don’t share his beliefs,

    It shows how far off the Republicans have veered. This kind of talk and action would condemn a political career on the national stage 25 years ago. Today, it’s the reasonable Jon Huntsmans of the party who are ignored.

    @Neil: You’re a tiresome fool.

  5. I’m sorry Sir. I get carried away by all this God stuff.

    The Devil made me do it.

    I must make amends as Janis Joplin did.

  6. Dawgbowl says:

    With few exceptions (and none I can think of on a national platform), the media won’t touch this. If they do, wingnuts will scream about liberal bias against Christians but not Muslims — which is a hoot considering the way they took off on Obama and Rev. White. Can anybody say ‘double standard?’

    It’s on skinny regional magazines and bloggers to keep it up. Godspeed.

  7. Let’s see, pure Christians like to keep women in their place.

    If he becomes President I bet prostitution will be legal.
