So,…. in my twisted brain, it would seem that if God despised Barack Obama and the policies he’s set forth soooo much,….
That instead of creating an economic meltdown in the world, with all the very bad, bad stuff that would accompany it,….
Maybe God could have just caused Barack Obama to lose the election.
Seems that might have been a simpler solution.
But I guess I’m not a deep enough thinker. And definitely not a pious enough individual.
Wonder if I’ll be saved on the day that I finally understand people like Franklin Graham. I hope so.

Some conservatives are having a tough time with President Barack Obama’s reelection. Take social conservative leader Franklin Graham. In an interview with Newsmax.com, the Rev. Graham, a prominent evangelist and son of top-dog evangelist Billy Graham, maintained that Obama’s victory will put the country further along a “path of destruction.” And he suggested it would take a “complete economic collapse” to place the United States on a better course and return it to godliness.
Graham equated the Obama years with a national rejection of God. “In the last four years, we have begun to turn our backs on God,” he said. “We have taken God out of our education system. We have taken him out of government. You have lawyers that sue you every time you mention the name of Jesus Christ in any kind of a public forum.” Oddly, Graham ignored the fact that he and other shepherds of the Christian right have griped about such matters for much longer than four years. It didn’t start with Obama.
