The all wise, all powerful “God” as seen by rednecks…

I’d like to correct this:
“God, send us someone to cure AIDS, cancer, etc., etc.”
“I did, but you gave them a substandard education because they lived in an area with poor funding due to low property taxes.  I did, but you let them die because they couldn’t afford healthcare.  I did, but due to racism you stomped out their potential and didn’t give them the same opportunities.  I did, but you make a college education too unaffordable while giving the big bankers passes.  I did, but you saw a homeless youth before you saw a kid with potential.  I did, but you kicked the downtrodden while they were already shoulder deep in sinking sand.”

THIS COMMENT!!!!!  ^^^

YES! That comment!!!

This comment is awesome.
This is exactly why I am now calling the ‘pro-life’ people ‘pro-birth’ because once that child is born, she is on her own.  

Forever reblog.

I rest my case

Any questions? 

I oppose money and the inequality it can and does promote. I oppose institutional religion and the fear, judgment, and division it can and does promote. I oppose capitalism and the unsustainable plunder and war it can and does promote. I want free health care for ALL people in the world. I want access to quality education for ALL people in the world. And while I want freedom, I know that it means nothing without justice, equality, and human rights for ALL people.
