US Senate Priest: God Is Captain America

captain america godYesterday, Barry C. Black, the officially established Christian priest of the United States Senate had a new piece of insight with which our nation’s legislators should direct their work.

He got up on the floor of the Senate and began the Senate’s work day with a sermon telling senators that the Christian God is “a shield for America”.

A shield for America? Really? So, God is essentially Captain America, then – and a prototype for comic book super heroes.

Why do we give a platform within our government for this drivel? Is it because we need protection from Red Skull?

Also, if God is a shield for America, doesn’t that imply that God is allowing worthy people to cross America’s borders, whether or not their crossing is strictly in line with U.S. laws?

    Terrorists are us now? NYPD special force to patrol with machine guns

    NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton announced Thursday that 350 heavily armed NYPD officers, called the “Strategic Response Group,” will soon be patrolling protests and the city at large. He said the new strain of hyper-armed police will be

    …equipped and trained in ways that our normal patrol officers are not. They’ll be equipped with all the extra heavy protective gear, with the long rifles and machine guns – unfortunately sometimes necessary in these instances.

    Bratton announced their purpose is specifically

    …designed for dealing with events like our recent protests, or incidents like Mumbai or what just happened in Paris.

    Lumping protesters in with terrorists, he said the permanent force will deal with “disorder control and counterterrorism protection capabilities.” It will allegedly assist on crime scenes and help with “crowd control and other large-scale events.”

    It is not unusual for authorities to ramp up “security” efforts following attacks (such as the ax attack against officers in October), but the idea of machine-gun clad officers is disturbing, especially considering past NYPD abuses of protesters and other residents.

    The federal government, which has attempted to feign concern with police brutality, is partially funding the militarized venture. The Department of Homeland Security is supplying resources, as is the city of New York. The Pentagon has previously provided machine guns, ammunition, and other military gear to New York police and other local cops around the country. [read the rest]

    Thats not a good thing to say that, if you ask me. No one has right to say things about God. This should be stopped

    1. J Clifford says:

      I have the right to say things about God. I say that God has a big nose.

      The principle that is at stake is that nobody has the legal right to hijack the government in order to promote their own religion, as the Senate Chaplain has done.
