‘Prayer Caucus’ Phones In a New ‘Obama Hates God’ Thing

by Jack Stuef

'Obama said WHAT? Oh, that's cool. Praise be upon him.'It is a very slow news day today, in honor of John Lennon, a man who wrote music and died one time. It also seems slow for something called the Congressional Prayer Caucus, which seeks to make Americans pray more by sticking prayer earmarks into the law books or something. What is the controversy? Obama doesn’t say “God” enough for them, of course. He recently said “E pluribus unum” is the national motto, but it is not, because Dwight Eisenhower made “In God We Trust” the motto thing, trusting that nobody would ever care about such trivial matters, much less make it their entire business of being in government. Of course, “E pluribus unum” is considered a national motto, and Obama still says God a lot, but they do not care, because they need something to pretend to get irate about today.

From a letter to Obama that some House intern wrote on her first day:

John Adams said, “It is religion and morality alone, which can establish the principles upon which freedom can securely stand.” If Adams was right, by making these kinds of statements to the rest of the world, you are removing one of the cornerstones of our secure freedom. If we pull the thread of religious conviction out of the marketplace of ideas, we unravel the tapestry of freedom that birthed America.

Since when are tapestries giving birth to things? We didn’t know they had reproductive organs. Also, we thought “the marketplace of ideas” was made out of ideas, not yarn. Are the thoughts in our brains mere playthings put there by GIANT CATS? John Adams was probably such a cat himself and, as a victor, rewrote history to make us all bicker and not be able to get anything done in this country, because bitter polarization is the logical conclusion of this two-party system and because division=profit. Fuck you, Cat Adams. [HuffPo]

Blasphemer!

Horn dog gay blasphemer!

Prepare yourself: the Inquisitors will arrive shortly.

Anyway, that Jeebus looks like the Brawny paper towel guy when he hasn't washed his hair recently.

Progressiveinga December 8, 2010 at 5:19 pm

I thought that was the 6th Beatle. Maybe Obama is the 6th Beatle.
Today, Obeatle is singing:
She said I know what it's like to be dead
I know what it is to be sad
and she's making me feel like I've never been born….

He looks like he would have a giant eagle tattooed across his chest.

jus_wonderin December 8, 2010 at 5:37 pm

Stick a beak on him and he'd be the twin of the giant eagle. But, where is the tear in his eye?

AutomaticPilot December 8, 2010 at 9:51 pm

With "USA #1" underneath, of course.

I hear the white girls aren't so crazy about Aryan Jesus, 'cause Black Jesus got them coming back for more.

Yes, his milkduds brings all the girls to the yard, and he's like, they are better than thines; verily, they are better than thines…

slappypaddy December 8, 2010 at 5:09 pm

"Are the thoughts in our brains mere playthings put there by GIANT CATS?"

looks like you people finally figured it out. here, have some kibble.

Is Heaven a gigantic litter box?

Negropolis December 9, 2010 at 2:02 am

Yes, the wheels in the brain go round and round, round and round, round and round…

valgal2342 December 9, 2010 at 6:45 am

Obama should sing the Meow Mix jingle inserting "God" into "meow" lyrics just for Michelle Bachmann's enjoyment.

valgal2342 December 9, 2010 at 6:46 am

As a dog, I must say that litter boxes are nasty things.

SorosBot December 9, 2010 at 8:35 am

You must not be my parents' dog, then, who thinks litter boxes are glorious things filled with delicious cat shit.

Tommmcatt December 8, 2010 at 5:09 pm

Actually, your thoughts are not so much playthings to us as….well, let me put it this way: We giant cats do not have to use litterboxes.

CrankyLttlCamperette December 8, 2010 at 6:01 pm

Well, that would finally explain the "Religious Right." They'd literally be poopyheads!

DustBowlBlues December 8, 2010 at 7:41 pm

Poopyheads. How charmingly preschool. You are my special wonkeratti now. I would have said, "shitheads," of course, but I am not adorably charming.

ShaveTheWhales December 8, 2010 at 10:13 pm

DBB, you certainly (I didn't call you Shirley) haven't forgotten the grand old Wonkinternet tradition of "poopyhead". (TM owls, I think?).

DustBowlBlues December 8, 2010 at 10:47 pm

{hangs head in shame} I had not yet joined the august ranks of the wonkeratti yet. Boy, is my face red! (Name the children's magazine that featured that as a weekly write-in response column.
No, really: name it, because I can't remember. "Weekly Reader?")

Ducksworthy December 8, 2010 at 5:09 pm

That's the muscular non-semitic Jeebus I remember from my youth, and the one Mel Gibson masturbates to, also.

ttommyunger December 8, 2010 at 6:42 pm

Just don't tell him Jeebus is a Joo; instant soft-on, I promise you.

valgal2342 December 9, 2010 at 6:43 am

This Jeebus looks a tad angry with his followers. Such a scowl.

ttommyunger December 9, 2010 at 10:27 am

The Good News: Jesus is coming! The Bad News: He's really pissed!

nicnack74 December 8, 2010 at 5:11 pm

Our President is a much more committed man than I. I am so ready to yell FAWK You to everyone, and I'm not even a public official. I'm beginning to wonder if Cheney started out mean and evil or the job made him that way, like the ring in the Fellowship of the Rings.

Jason_inthe_Peg December 8, 2010 at 6:15 pm

If only Obama would covet leading a tenth as much as the dark lord.

ttommyunger December 8, 2010 at 6:43 pm

Oh, Cheney has been a worthless evil fuck all his worthless evil life.

ShaveTheWhales December 8, 2010 at 10:14 pm

Correct answer: (a) Started out mean and evil.

fuflans December 8, 2010 at 5:15 pm

that's not an intern. that's bristol. she just got to the metaphor lesson.

jim89048 December 8, 2010 at 5:16 pm

Looks like Mormon Jeebus to me.

I think you're correct. At least, that appears to be the image that covers virtually every vertical surface here in rural Idaho (Western Jeezustopia).

Badonkadonkette December 8, 2010 at 5:16 pm

we unravel the tapestry of freedom that birthed America

Was this a natural birth? Did the tapestry of freedom poop all over Native Americans during the final push? What did they do with the placenta?

SorosBot December 8, 2010 at 5:26 pm

America was from her mother's womb untimely ripped.

DustBowlBlues December 8, 2010 at 7:44 pm

Another English major! Damn. You have way more pees than I. And I just helped you by responding.

Today, we are all tapestry abortions because of Hussein Obamar…

ttommyunger December 8, 2010 at 6:45 pm

Palin prolly invited Xstine over for a Bar-B-Q, followed by a rousing Prong Dance in the Asparagus patch.

ShaveTheWhales December 8, 2010 at 10:16 pm

And of what was the placenta made? Lint?

SorosBot December 8, 2010 at 5:16 pm

It's good to see our nation's Congressman are concentrating on the important issues in these hard times.

ttommyunger December 8, 2010 at 6:46 pm

More like the hard things in these important times.

Damn you, Cat Adams! Cat Damon is not pleased.

ManchuCandidate December 8, 2010 at 5:20 pm

It's pretty easy to hate Jeebus and his "dad" when you got these fundie assholes around here.

ttommyunger December 8, 2010 at 6:47 pm

I figure they hate them as much as we do. Hypocrisy was condemned more than any other sin in the NT.

DustBowlBlues December 8, 2010 at 7:48 pm

True. I attend a church all the time, but on the whole, the nation would be better off without the religious types. Unlike me, of course, more like the Palins and the Hucks.

BaldarTFlagass December 9, 2010 at 8:48 am

Well, if we could get them to attend church all the time, they'd be too busy to bother the rest of us.

Come here a minute December 8, 2010 at 5:21 pm

That guy looks like a wine-guzzling vagrant. Carpe diem!

ttommyunger December 8, 2010 at 6:48 pm

Wine making, for sure.

They want Sharia Law in America, except for Xtians. Same shit, different flavor.

PublicLuxury December 8, 2010 at 5:22 pm

The pic of Jeebus is one usually found in Mormon households, cause he's looks just like them….

ttommyunger December 8, 2010 at 6:50 pm

In other words, totally un-Jewish.

PublicLuxury December 8, 2010 at 5:25 pm

What is the problem with these fuckers? They are ALWAYS bringing up birf. You'd think they had some mommy issues or daddy issues or baby issues or they skipped some stage???? Where the hell is psychwench?

Zvi_Bleindmeis December 8, 2010 at 8:18 pm

I'm a clinical psychologist. Maybe I can help.

These people are fixated on the "oral" and "anal" stages. Freud termed them "big-mouthed assholes," while Adler refers to "diarrhea of the mouth." Object relations theorists talk about "analingus" as their typical mode of interaction. Cognitive behavioral authorities argue that these people "have their heads up their asses."

ShaveTheWhales December 8, 2010 at 10:21 pm

Evolutionary psychologists say "WTF? You expect us to explain this shit? Protoplasm from meteorites, who the fuck knows?"

jim89048 December 8, 2010 at 11:31 pm

That could've been one of the lectures I attended when studying at the feet of someone who had studied at the feet of A.S. Neill, way back in the 60's. I guess that makes me a Neill-ist, too…

SorosBot December 8, 2010 at 5:29 pm

If Obama had some balls, he'd respond to this by going to church again publicly, back with that old Reverend they all hate because he was honest about nasty things America has done.

problemwithcaring December 8, 2010 at 5:30 pm

One question,Tapestry – Where's the birf certificate?

You're Art Buchwald?

Steverino247 December 8, 2010 at 5:34 pm

Barry probably says "God" a lot, especially when he's got a certain woman with well toned arms on top of him.

As for the birth obsession: My own pet theory about this shit is that these assholes (the DSM-V will finally come out and call them what mental health professionals have been calling them behind their backs all this time) have certain beliefs about blacks and this guy's not fitting their stereotypes, ruining their little racist jokes for them.

DustBowlBlues December 8, 2010 at 7:51 pm

Where, indeed, is psych wench?

OC_Surf_Serf December 8, 2010 at 5:35 pm

"It is religion and morality alone, which can establish the principles upon which freedom can securely stand"

So submit to the all-powerful who controls all aspects of your life and you will be FREE!!

ttommyunger December 8, 2010 at 6:52 pm

Specifically, their Religion and their morality and nobody else's.

GuanoFaucet December 8, 2010 at 5:37 pm

Hey Bachmann, if he mentions Gog and Magog like Bush, that feeble-minded sadistic asshole, does that count?

Chet Kincaid December 8, 2010 at 7:34 pm

I imagine Gog and Magog as two ancient fuckups played by Jack Black and that one one doofus-hipster kid, absent-mindedly freeing the Whore of Babylon and bringing on the Apocalypse. That, or two pulpy barbarian kings dreamed up by Robert E. Howard. Or maybe they're Grog and Mygrog, protagonists of many a drunken sailor joke of the 18th Century.

ShaveTheWhales December 8, 2010 at 10:26 pm

You dazzle me again with the breadth of your literary tapestry, or whatever (ran out of gas there, sorry).

Chet Kincaid December 9, 2010 at 9:58 am

Fooled ya, I'm only comment-deep!

SorosBot December 9, 2010 at 10:24 am

I imagine Gog as the last god of the Third World, and Magog as a character from Kingdom Come meant as a parody of 90s antiheroes who has for inexplicable reasons been inserted into present-day continuity, and is a reminder that Geoff Johns sucks.

DeeJayKitteh December 8, 2010 at 5:39 pm

If the tapestry of freedom made out of religious conviction birthed the United States, does that make the Congressional Prayer Caucus the afterbirth?

toomtabard December 8, 2010 at 5:40 pm

And Bachmann and Friends offer to meet with him to discuss the matter further! I think Obama would like to take that meeting as much as he would like to be kicked squarely in the nuts repeatedly (and really, the two things are synonymous).

JustPixelz December 8, 2010 at 5:40 pm

Look at the artistry of the slam: He doesn't say god or creator "enough". How much would be enough? I suspect the answer is infinity + 10.

Rush doesn't say "No thanks, I don't do drugs" enough.
Palin doesn't say "I'm don't care about money" enough.
Beck doesn't say "I don't know what the fuck I'm talking about" enough.
Bachmann doesn't say "I swallow" enough.

ttommyunger December 8, 2010 at 6:54 pm

O'Reilly doesn't say "how much will it take for you to drop the lawsuit and surrender the tapes" enough.

Chet Kincaid December 8, 2010 at 7:16 pm

Moderate Islam doesn't apologize for Radical Islam "enough."

Barrelhse December 8, 2010 at 7:31 pm

Dick Cheney doesn't die enough.

SudsMcKenzie December 8, 2010 at 5:41 pm

Whenever I'm not hearing enough "god", I just watch some Porn.

mavenmaven December 8, 2010 at 5:44 pm

Obama, we demand that you produce your birth tapestry immediately!

SayItWithWookies December 8, 2010 at 5:49 pm

So if, by not mentioning God, President Obama is pulling the thread of religion — which is a cornerstone — out of the tapestry of freedom and depriving the marketplace of ideas, he must be feathering the nest of anarchy with the wet noodles of socialism, grinding the face of prayer under the jackboot of secular humanism, and pulling the wool over the eyes of our melting pot with the iron fist of facts in the velvet glove of compromise. In short, we're going to need a whole new wardrobe. Of freedom.

jus_wonderin December 8, 2010 at 5:52 pm

LOL. I need a L size if it shrinks a lot, otherwise I need a M.

Very nice. Is your real job writing "cables" from exotic locales for the State Department?

Zvi_Bleindmeis December 8, 2010 at 8:27 pm

I would like a serving of mixed metaphor, please, with hyperbole on the side.

ShaveTheWhales December 8, 2010 at 10:28 pm

Wooks, you put the "meta" in "metaphor".

Native_of_SL_UT December 9, 2010 at 11:54 am

What is the thread count of a cornerstone?

Rotundo_ December 8, 2010 at 5:51 pm

So unless he's trying to work the word "God" or "Jesus" into every other phrase, like an ad from some sort of huckster hawking aluminum pans on a shopping channel, or some asshole selling fake rolex watches they decide he isn't religious enough. So that's how it works, a babbling idiot mumbling "God God God God God God God God God God God God God God" every waking minute, while playing with feces is more pious than Barry. Yep, that's logical.

ttommyunger December 8, 2010 at 6:56 pm

You finally get it! Iss all about what you say, not what you do.

Barrelhse December 8, 2010 at 7:33 pm

You'd have people thinking that you were cumming all the time.

GOPCrusher December 8, 2010 at 5:56 pm

Well, Iran is a theocracy. I suppose it's only fitting that the Xtians make America into one too.

You know who else thanked the Almighty Creator — oh, wait….

anniegetyourfun December 8, 2010 at 5:58 pm

The Council to Assert Religious Morality is correct to quote John Adams. After all, how else would be determine the need to stone to death children who disobey their parents. That's not an idea that people just come up with. No, we need God for those kinds of amazing ideas.

ETA: why the fuck can't I link to shit anymore?

Barrelhse December 8, 2010 at 7:36 pm

I wish they'd change the name somehow, so the acronym would be CRAM.

Keith Ellison should try to join the Prayer Caucus, just for shits and giggles. And bring along a professional muezzin to start things off right.

jim89048 December 8, 2010 at 7:35 pm

Good idea. This prayer tapestry sounds suspiciously like a prayer rug, anyway…

ShaveTheWhales December 8, 2010 at 10:31 pm

Hmm, how about a flying prayer tapestry?

Cicada December 8, 2010 at 6:13 pm

If Obama started saying God more, they'd just be bitching that he doesn't mean the right one.

natoslug December 8, 2010 at 6:17 pm

Are Prayer Cocks what you get during a viagra and meth fueled rentboy party? If so, why are we listening to them? If not, why are we listening to them?

JackObin December 8, 2010 at 6:21 pm

John Adams was pre-Darwinian. Clearly he and all the founders would be atheists today. They would also think Sarah Palin a practical joke from the British in response to the Tea Party.

Billmatic December 8, 2010 at 6:24 pm

It's cute how religious types think religion and morality are mutually inclusive.

i bet he says stuff like "goddamn fucking steve king can go fuck off" and "every goddamn time i try to accomplish something, these goddamn imbeciles have to pipe in with their shit" all the time.

BarackMyWorld December 8, 2010 at 7:04 pm

So they claim the concept of separation of church and state doesn't exist because those exact words are not the First Amendment but a letter by Jefferson, whereas the words "no religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office" are literally written in the actual document, and they act like it doesn't count because they found a quote by Adams that they think contradicts it?

Then their logic jumps ahead in time to the 1950s, to justify their case further, again without any internal consistency in their logic:
"In 1956, Congress passed and President Eisenhower approved the law establishing 'In God We Trust' as the official national motto of the United States," the letter reads. "[Y]ou mentioned being unified under one flag. The Pledge of Allegiance to our flag says that we are 'one nation under God.'" In neglecting to use the word "God," they say Obama is "casting aside an integral part of American society."

"Integral." But only since 1956, a full 180 years after the nation's founding.

Also.

marinmaven December 8, 2010 at 8:00 pm

It would be also interesting to note that OUR constitution does not mention GOD anywhere. I think it was the first constitution to do so. I figure if our constitution doesn't mention God, our President or any other public servant shouldn't have to.

Also, our constitution had many constitutional models to choose from, the founders chose the Virginia state constitution which allows for the most religious freedom or freedom of non-belief especially for the non-Christian.

Beanball December 9, 2010 at 12:28 am

The Pledge didn't become part of the Flag Code until 1942. Also and har-de-har-har: It was originally written in 1892 as a marketing slogan to sell flags to public schools. It's author, Francis Bellamy, was a fricking Socialist, with a capital "S".

Wankers.

thefrontpage December 8, 2010 at 7:05 pm

What on frickin' earth is the Congressional Prayer Caucus? Don't they meet at that special house on C Street?

Barrelhse December 8, 2010 at 7:41 pm

I'll bet they think the "C" stands for christian, but we know what the "C" word really is, and just how appropriately it fits that ilk.

cheaphits December 8, 2010 at 8:22 pm

The one with the rentboys and the meth?

DustBowlBlues December 8, 2010 at 7:46 pm

The intern, by the way, doesn't know jack shit about John Adams and has damn sure never read one of his letters. The man believed in personal morality (as in, refusing to employ slave labor and working his farm himself because taking the Jefferson route was morally indefensible.)

Life in the US would be better if these dicks just watched the HBO mini-series, for chrissakes. They don't have to read the book–it's long and, frankly, not exactly like reading Joseph Ellis, but shit–HBO made a very watchable movie out of it. WTF?

chickensmack December 8, 2010 at 7:53 pm

I say "goddammit" enough to make up for Barry's lack of Jesus. Remember, if ketchup is a vegetable, "GD" is still invoking God.

Redhead December 8, 2010 at 8:18 pm

Dear memo-writing House intern: please stop mixing metaphors. More is not always better. I'm sure you have English 101 homework to finish.
Sincerely, Redhead.

PS – Adams didn't say WHICH religion established the basis for freedom. Maybe he meant Buddha (regular, not aqua).

snoopyfan2010 December 8, 2010 at 8:19 pm

By just being nice to these people and not giving them a taste of their own BS, Barry is being more Christ-like than they claim.

axmxz December 8, 2010 at 10:28 pm

If the tapestry of freedom made out of religious conviction birthed the United States, a sheet of Fruit Roll-ups made out of corn syrup birthed the Congressional Prayer Caucus.

elpinche December 8, 2010 at 10:49 pm

I thought a Prayer Caucus was the fundi xian's way of dealing with constipation.

DustBowlBlues December 8, 2010 at 10:53 pm

Has anyone pointed out that the prayer caucus, whatever that vile bunch of hypocrites actually is, probably copped the "whole tapestry" analogy from Elizabeth Warren? She uses it to explain to simpletons why we need to re-regulate because, over time, the various acts of deregulation began "unraveling the tapestry."

I'm shocked, really, that they have even heard EW speak. But then, I suppose they were listening to liberal teevee to monitor how often God was mentioned. Like they had to watch "Friends" because the Focus on the Family newsletter listed how many times bad language and partial nudity was used in it and various other shows meant for viewers above the 6th. grade level. After all, Jennifer Aniston's low cut shirts arent' going to count themselves.

Oh God. I stepped in some prayer caucus and now I can't get it off my shoe!

Every time one of these cousinfuckers invokes God, I become a little bit more militant in my agnosticism.

Also, we thought “the marketplace of ideas” was made out of ideas, not yarn. Are the thoughts in our brains mere playthings put there by GIANT CATS? John Adams was probably such a cat himself and, as a victor, rewrote history to make us all bicker and not be able to get anything done in this country, because bitter polarization is the logical conclusion of this two-party system and because division=profit. Fuck you, Cat Adams.

THIS is why I keep coming back here. I totally get this thought process. From ideas to yarn to cats to presidents. This madness, this fever; she makes sense.

Yes, fuck you, Cat Adams, indeed.

Even for his day John Adams was known as a conservative. It is no wonder, then, that they hold him in such high regard. I hope that they all know that John Adams was a total elitist, though, which doesn't exactly fit with their tea bagger values.

Giant cats, my ass. I have two 3-month old kittens and I do there every bidding.

John Adams was a Unitarian, not a Xtn at all.

Don't look now fundies but that tapestry seems to be having a late term abortion.

I guess my sense of humor is really gone when otherwise funny right wing crap like this just produces an urge to literally strangle one of these porcine hypocritical bastards.

It was only last month, have you lost as many brain cells as the rest of us?

It must have happened that half hour period when I was trying to resist the lure of the wonket so I could get something productive with my life.

Fail, yet again.

Can I still be special? Not "special" like Trig, though.
