Today, in Washington, D.C., three resplendent christianist wingnuts gathered to anoint the doorway through which Barack Obama will pass as he walks to the inaugural platform to be sworn in as president of the United States.
Congressman Paul Broun of Georgia, noted for his wacky wingnuttery such as saving our military from the perversity of porn, joined the right wing theocrat, Rob Schenck of Faith and Action, and the looney-tune Patrick J. Mahoney of the Christian Defense Coalition to anoint the doorway.
Schenck, who just can't get it through his thick skull that this is not a Christian nation, said "Oil symbolizes consecration, or setting something apart for God's use."
Obviously, he doesn't understand. He's a christianist clergy person and as such has no business setting anything or anyone involved with our government "apart for God's use."
This is a secular nation.
But Schenck and the other two christianist wingnuts did it anyway. Representative Broun, who should be recalled for his flaunting of our Constitution, preached a little sermon right there in the Capitol as to how we need to do God's will and how Obama needs to do what is "right."
Schenck dabbed his "sacred" oil on the doorposts while reading Bible passages.
Mahoney, who has been fasting and praying for Obama, read a Billy Graham inaugural prayer used some 40 years ago.
Maybe these clowns could put together their own sitcom, the plot focusing on three self-anointed christianist stooges who try to take over the government for God, shredding the Constitution in their wake. The name of the sitcom might be: "De-establishing the Establishment Clause for Christ."
At the end of each episode, they could sit around and howl and sacrifice chickens while reading from their holy books.
Here's the video.
