The GOP keeps dropping their theocratic pants, and America gets mooned. Despite having no platform beyond trolling the Democratic party, and self-serving religious attacks disguised as culture clashes, America is sliding to the bottom of that shining city on the hill Republicans are so fond of talking about. Democrats have lost the fever of Yes—We Can and given over to Maybe They[GOP] Will (do the right thing). That passive aggressiveness led to three questionable Supreme Court appointments,  politicizing the Justice Department, over a million deaths from a virus, and ultimately coming within a secret service limo ride of destruction. Almost two years to the day of the attack on Benghazi the first hearings were held. Though nothing significant was accomplished, more than the failures of Congress to provide funding for proper security, the Republicans took it as an opportunity to take down Hillary Clinton’s upcoming presidential campaign.

GOP House minority leader Kevin McCarthy let the cat out of the bag in 2015, “Everybody thought Hillary Clinton was unbeatable, right? But we put together a Benghazi special committee, a select committee, what are her numbers today?” said McCarthy. That was not the first time McCarthy shot from the lip. In a recording reported by the Washington Post made on June 15, 2016, McCarthy said, “There’s two people I think Putin pays: [Dana] Rohrabacher and Trump.” McCarthy has scraped and groveled more than a Joe Manchin coal miner at the feet of Trump even after his faux condemnation of Trump following the insurrection. In his zeal for the House Speakership, McCarthy cannot let go of the hem of Trump’s garment.

Amen, brothers and sisters!  

The theocracy of a former Republican candidate for Governor of Georgia, Kandiss Taylor, who campaigned on Jesus, Guns, and Babies, said in a campaign speech, “We’re gonna do a political rally, and we’re gonna honor Jesus,” Taylor said. She delivered her screed in front of her campaign bus, with her “Jesus, Guns, and Babies” catchphrase prominently displayed. She went on to say, “They’re not gonna tell us ‘separation of church and state.’ We are the church! We run this state!” It may be of little surprise that I am a frequent viewer of C-span. I feel I should turn to a song in my hymnal whenever a Republican guest or caller makes it to the front of the line.   When a member of the GOP caucus rises in the well of Congress, I look for the hallelujah choir to second them—Amen, brothers, and sisters!

I am not demeaning faith or religiosity; I am standing up for the Constitution: Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion I did not make up those words, and former Justice Hugo Black agrees, “[t]he First Amendment has erected a wall between church and state,” and “[t]hat wall must be kept high and impregnable.”  The words in the Constitution are the ones every federal government member swears an oath. One affirms it with a promise to their God, but the oath is to the American Constitution. Government affirms your right to worship or not. When Roe v. Wade was adjudicated in 1973, it did not say a woman could or could not have a baby; it gave a woman a choice. So having two or twenty children was never infringed. Telling a child what to read may be egregious, but telling her she must have a baby, in words, a theocrat would understand, is un-Godly.
