If you remember a previous post of mine, “A Boatload of Nonsense,” you’ll know that I’m not a huge fan of the movie, Evan Almighty. Back in 2007, Girl talked me into seeing it with her and, today, believe it or not, I gave in again. This time the movie was on television. A cool, rainy day; pillows and blankets aplenty; popcorn and drinks. How could I resist?

This time, the part of the movie that struck me most was when Evan, standing before Congress, confesses that it was “God” who told him to build an ark in preparation for a great flood… to which the leading congressman responds,

God? You talk to God?… And God is talking back?… Obviously, the stresses of this office have proven too much for you… Please have the congressman removed.

[sigh]

Wouldn’t that be a sight to see in real life: political points deducted – not added – when candidates talk about their private exchanges with God. In the latest GOP presidential debate (the “Thanksgiving Family Forum”), for instance, the Christian contenders even left their dog whistles at home.  They didn’t need whistles; the candidates were astonishly candid about their intentions should they be elected. And, since the debate was not televised nor viewed online by many, I’m wondering if those who might have been critical of what was said may be unaware that there was even a debate this weekend.

So, who’s still awake?  I’m asking because I just came upon the creepiest animated GIF ever.  Now, who knows when I’ll have the courage to turn off the lights tonight.  And you know what they say about misery; it loves company.

So, anybody game?

Ready?

Am I right?

Actually, I found it on a site that is proposing a different kind of scariness, a new amendment to the Constitution, the Christian America Constitutional Amendment. The document is designed to improve upon the shoddy work of Founding Fathers by replacing the religion clause of the 1st Amendment with this new amendment:

Christian America Constitutional Amendment
The United States is a Christian Nation. Congress shall make no law abridging the free exercise of all Christian religions, nor make law giving preference of one Christian denomination over another Christian denomination, nor giving preference of one Christian sect over another Christian sect. This amendment replaces the religion clause of the first amendment and supersedes all treaties as relevant to this amendment.

The blog author reverend guy claims that the new amendment is also our only chance to “save the nation from our enemies and have reasonable time to train the eternal souls and minds of our children to honor the Golden Rule and God’s Way in their lives.”  Though, to be honest, the CACA doesn’t seem very Golden Rulish to me.  Does it to you?
