Ye Defiled My Land, and Made Mine Heritage an Abomination

Jeremiah 2:7, y'all.“I would point out that if you’re a believer in in the Bible, one would have to say the Great Flood is an example of climate change, and that certainly wasn’t because mankind had overdeveloped hydrocarbon energy.” —Texas Congresscritter Joe Barton, defending the Keystone pipeline. [BuzzFeed, via Political Wire]


If you’re a believer in the Bible, you know that the Lord had good reasons in Her own mind to cause the Great Flood (e.g. ripping off the Babylonian flood story) and climate change wasn’t one of them.

How long does it take Jimmy Joe to apologize to Exxon/Mobil for everyone else criticizing them?

I’d say 4 hours.

And the Great Flood of GOP ignorance continues unabated.

@gunnergoz: The Michigan RNC dude is in the news again today, comparing homosexuality to alcoholism. Almost ran with it, but I passed on his first attempt, and it’s an old-school conventional attitude. (Hate the sin, not the sinner, pretty much.) Bigots should at least try to be amusing.
