Fischer: God Only Allows A Woman To Be President As A Last Resort

The American Family Association’s Bryan Fischer, buddy of newly announced GOP Presidential candidate Rick Perry and co-sponsor of his hate filled “Response” prayer-athon, has definite ideas on what place women should have in our culture and it doesn’t include the White House. Unless there are no men available to do the job that is…

If you look at the Scriptures, I believe it’s clear that God has designed men to exercise authority in the home, in the church, in society, and in government. So let me repeat that – that is my personal take on what the Scriptures indicate about the way God has designed man and woman to work: God has designed men to exercise leadership and authority and headship in the home, in the church, in society, and in government.

Now then the question becomes what if God can’t find any men with the spine and with the testicular fortitude to provide the kind of leadership? Well, what he’ll do is He’ll send a woman to do a man’s job.

Rick Perry must be so proud.

Those Damn Entitlement Programs

To be considered for the GOP nomination these days you have to preach about the evils of just about any entitlement program. It certainly wouldn’t pay to have any socialist tendencies with the tea party’s calling the shots in the GOP now would it?

So I guess it isn’t going to be all wine and roses for 2 of the tea party favorite sons/daughters as it is being reported that Minnesota crazy woman, and entitlement hater, Michele Bachmann has been at the front of the line when stimulus dollars were being handed out not to mention the government aid she and her husband have received over the years for their business interests.

A Freedom of Information Act request filed by The Huffington Post with three separate federal agencies reveals that on at least 16 separate occasions, Bachmann petitioned the federal government for direct financial help or aid. A large chunk of those requests were for funds set aside through President Obama’s stimulus program, which Bachmann once labeled “fantasy economics.” Bachmann made two more of those requests to the Environmental Protection Agency, an institution that she has suggested she would eliminate if she were in the White House.

Taken as a whole, the letters underscore what Bachmann’s critics describe as a glaring distance between her campaign oratory and her actual conduct as a lawmaker. Combined with previous revelations that Bachmann personally relied on a federally subsidized home loan while her husband’s business benefited from Medicaid payments, it appears that one of the Tea Party’s most cherished members has demonstrated that the government does, in fact, play a constructive role — at least in her life and district.

And then there is Texas Governor Rick Perry.

Fresh off his “Response” rally with some of his most hate filled fundamentalist friends we are learning that he apparently suffers from a slightly milder case of the same affliction that South Dakota’s own Kristi Noem suffers fromfarm subsidies.

Falling into line with the Tea Party rhetoric against “out-of-control” government spending, Gov. Rick Perry (R-TX) is now supporting a move away from direct subsidies to the agriculture industry in favor of an incentives-driven model. But Perry himself has benefited from over $80,000 in farm subsidies over the years and publicly declared his support for farm subsidies when running for Texas Agriculture Commissioner in 1990.

Obviously coming from my political persuasion, benefiting from government programs like both Bachmann and Perry have is nothing to be ashamed of. Doing so and then preaching on how evil they are, on the other hand, certainly is.

The "Response" Wasn't The Only Gathering In Town

Texas Governor Rick Perry’s so called apolitical get together of some of his most hateful religious extremist friends wasn’t the only gathering in Houston last Saturday. In fact an estimated 3 times as many people attended another gathering on Saturday and it didn’t even rate a mention in any mainstream media newscasts.

The other event, Houston’s first ever citywide back to school event was setup to provide much needed school supplies, uniforms, haircut vouchers, immunizations, and fresh produce to the city’s ever growing poor population. Unfortunately the pre-event estimates of 25,000 needy children ended up being closer to 100,000 causing event organizers to close the doors 2 hours early and turning away 10’s of thousands of kids.

Not surprisingly, the “Response” attendees apparently made no mention of those who had gathered only a few blocks down the road.

A Day Of Prayer Brought To You By Hatred And Bigotry

Texas Governor and possible GOP Presidential candidate Rick Perry is organizing what he claims is a non-denominational, apolitical, Christian (please explain that) day of prayer event in Houston August 6th and invited the 49 other Governors to attend. The event is being sponsored by the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) listed hate group the American Family Association guided by the one and only Bryan Fischer.

You may or may not be familiar with Fischer but he has a long and storied history of gay, immigrant, and Muslim bashing, as well as just plain outright bigotry. With that in mind one would wonder why Perry, and believe it or not many other Republican’s, would want to be associated with such a hateful group/person and so far only Kansas’ Sam Brownbeck has publicly agreed to attend though Louisiana’s Bobby Jindal would like to if he can get around a scheduling conflict.

All I can say to anyone believing that Perry or anyone else pandering to this guy and his organization (Michele Bachmann, Mike Huckabee, Tim Pawlenty, Haley Barbour, and Newt Gingrich that means you) should be anywhere near the White House is please watch Fischer at work below…and then re-consider.
