Jesus controls the economy???

god-moneyThis should truly terrify everyone…

Roughly one in five Americans believes that the invisible hand that is thought to guide the Free Markets (the founding principle behind the American System) in the hand of God.

A study coming out of Baylor University has found that 20% of our fellow Americans believe that God (as put by USA Today) “…actively engaged in daily workings of the world with an economic conservative view that opposes government regulation and champions the free market as a matter of faith”.

"They say the invisible hand of the free market is really God at work," says sociologist Paul Froese, co-author of the Baylor Religion Survey, released today by Baylor University in Waco, Texas to the paper.

When Rick Perry or Michele Bachmann say 'God blesses us, God watches us, God helps us,' religious conservatives get the shorthand. They see 'government' as a profane object — a word that is used to signal working against God's plan for the United States. To argue against this is to argue with their religion."

 

Jesus take the eTrade account…

Needless to say, the irony of this story is that these hayseeds firmly convinced that God is pulling the strings to all this nonsense are probably the same jackaloons who hold as a primary reason for not trusting Iran is because of their ancient adherence to the rules and opinions of Allah (or his bearded representative) in matters of State (which, if I am not mistaken, does include the economy…)

Now as far as I am concerned, something about this really kind of terrifies me in a very real way.

The same way it freaks me out when the Iranian President goes in front of the UN screaming and yelling about how he is the 12th imam and he needs to wipe Israel off the map in order to spring a prophet from a well.

Sure, on the surface it’s cute…

It’s always fun to talk to people about their fantasy worlds…

But let’s be honest here…

This is no different than my belief in international cabals of bankers with a penchant for global subjugation intentionally crumbling the global economy because of a thousand year old pact between ancient powerful families or the idea (which I also seem to buy into which, more than anything, leaves me wondering if in fact too much marijuana has been consumed by a certain paranoid writer...) that forces from another galaxy monitor the events on Earth because of some destiny our planet will one day have to rise to.

This is the exact reason Atheists are terrified to death of anyone with religious fervor…

You motherfuckers are out of your minds.
