More right wingers with a suffering fetish.

Make no mistake.  The extreme Christian right wing of the GOP is devoted to suffering.  Not theirs, yours and mine.  Its God's plan according to Dave Shultheis  state senator from Colorado.  Now its easy  to dismiss these kinds of comments as just flat crazy but its really not that simple.  From Terri Schaivo,  medical Marijuana,  and apparently AIDS testing Christianity is rooted in the notion of human suffering.  We are fallen, the flesh is corrupt, and the attendant misery we experience cannot be undone and  leads us to Jesus.  It completes His blood sacrifice.

Money quote starts here and gets crazier:
What I'm hoping is that, yes, that person may have AIDS, have it seriously as a baby and when they grow up, but the mother will begin to feel guilt as a result of that,


  1. jest shootin' fish in a barrel here, dammit.

  2. Fish that vote on laws that have a real impact on actual people? Suppose I am.
