The above screencap comes from an article at OneNewsNow.com (here: http://www.onenewsnow.com/…fault.aspx ) which I found after reading a blog post at StarTribune.com (here: http://politicalblogs.startribune.com/…stionblog/ ). It turns out that OneNewsNow.Com is a Christian news site so, it makes sense that they would include Republican Congresswoman Michele Bachmann's comments on Nancy Pelosi's quest to avoid new drilling in that third paragraph.



For the search engines and for anyone listening to this post, here are her comments again: "[Pelosi] is committed to her global warming fanaticism to the point where she has said that she's just trying to save the planet. We all know that someone did that over 2,000 years ago, they saved the planet -- we didn't need Nancy Pelosi to do that,"



This is why religion is such a freakin' scary thing!!



Pelosi is talking about not making things worse for the environment and Bachmann, the idiot Christian, is claiming Jesus saved the Earth two-thousand years ago. This is a woman who votes for or against laws, people!!



First off, Jesus (if you believe) did NOT save the "Earth". OK? He saved US. He died for our sins--what does this do? It saves us from going to hell after we die. It doesn't do shit for us now.



Did I mention I'm an Atheist? Yeah, so, when an Atheist knows Christianity better than someone invoking Jesus on the House floor, you know the invoker is one right moron.



So, if you're going to be a believer GET IT RIGHT. Jesus promised us *eternal* salvation--but it will be our kids that suffer *mortal* damnation if we don't get this planet in order.



Then again, Christianity pretty much gives us no reason at all to give a crap about anyone or anything since everything is cool in heaven--all will be forgiven after we die, right? So, why does any Christian care about the Earth?



On a completely unrelated note, I had to giggle when I first saw the name of that Christian news site. I misread it as "OneNewSnow.com"



Very odd name for a news site. :)
