God’s America

Somebody should call Mitt Romney out on this shit:
Leading Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney declared Friday that God created America to lead the world, and accused President Barack Obama of deliberately weakening his nation.

Romney sought to bolster his credentials to serve as commander-in-chief as new polls showed him back at the top of the Republican field and in a tight potential head-to-head matchup with Obama ahead of next year’s election.

“God did not create this country to be a nation of followers. America is not destined to be one of several equally balanced global powers,” Romney said, in the most important foreign policy speech of the Republican campaign so far.

If America is so important to God, just what the hell was God doing for thousands years of human history before America was invented, biding his time?

If America is meant to lead and not be a nation of followers, why doesn’t he help our economy improve, lower the unemployment rate, stop home foreclosures, and smite our enemies in Iraq, Afghanistan, Somalia, and Yemen?

Why does he continue to allow manifestly inferior men to become congressmen and presidents?

Do you think the all knowing, all-seeing, omnipotent creator of the universe has nothing better to do than sit in Heaven and root for one nation to triumph over another in some venal quarrel?

If God favors us, what have all the other nations of the earth done to make him disfavor them?

Does it seem likely that God prefers the only nation that ever used nuclear weapons against other human beings over like places like New Zealand, or Fiji, or Belize, who harm no one?

Why would God like fat, coarse, belligerent Americans — which would include grown men who wear football jerseys and support every war the US fights, regardless of whether it is just or not — over the peaceful Laplanders or the Inuit?

What happened to God in the sixties and seventies? Did he just up and decide one day that, on second thought, he kind of liked those plucky North Vietnamese a little bit better than the Americans?

Why does God allow his chosen country to get pounded by so many natural disasters?
