Debate began today in the South Carolina Senate to consider whether or not the state will remove the Confederate flag from the statehouse in Columbia. But one GOP State Senator decided it would be a great time to instead talk about same-sex marriage, thereby derailing the debate.
Senator Lee Bright began his ridiculous tirade by saying:
“I watch the White House be lit up in the abomination colors! It is time for the church to rise up…. Romans chapter 1 is clear, the Bible is clear. This nation was founded on Judeo-Christian principles and they are under assault by men in black.”
I wonder if it would to any good to point out to Senator Bright that most of the Founding Fathers were vehemently opposed to the United States being founded on any religious principle at all. They had just come from a country that attempted to impose one religion on its inhabitants. Nah, he’s probably way too stupid to understand such logic.
But this pinhead of a man was far from finished, and he rambled on with this rotted tripe:
“Our governor called us in to deal with the flag that sits out front, let’s deal with the national sin that we face today! We talk about abortion but this gay marriage thing, I believe will be one nation gone under like President Reagan said. If we’re not one nation under God, we’ll be one nation gone under. And to sanctify deviant behavior from five judges, it’s time for us to make our stand, church! It’s time to make our stand and we’re not doing it.”
I think he’s gonna have an accident! Someone call the paramedics! Yet Bright then chokes up and says:
“We can rally together and talk about a flag all we want but the devil is taking control of this land and we’re not stopping him!”
Yes, and apparently said devil has taken possession of your tiny soul, Senator.
In a final flourish of pure moronic bombast, Senator Bright said:
“Let’s find some way to deal with marriage. If we’re not going to find some way to deal with marriage like our forefathers did or push back against a tyrannical government like he founders of this nation did, let’s at least not put these citizens in South Carolina in a position where they’ve got to choose between their faith and their jobs.”
I for one am a strong proponent of truth in advertising, and as part of that effort, I firmly believe this man should be mandated to change his name to Senator Lee Not-So-Bright.
It seems only fair.
