So, presidential hopeful and devout polytheist, Mitt Romney, declared twice in his closing statement in tonight’s final presidential debate, that America is the hope of the earth. I ask you, as a Christian, what in the hell could that possibly mean that is in any way Christian?
Romney might be a devout polytheist, but he’s nowhere near a devout Christian based upon that repeated remark. In the first place, polytheism isn’t quite Christian. Maybe some of you have read the Bible. I don’t want to be CLOSED MINDED. (Could there be any greater sin?!) It’s totally possible that the Book of Mormon has updated and surpassed both the Old and New Testaments. You know, the Book of Mormon is Bible 2.0 – ditch the old version, already. But since I have not ditched the Bible, one thing that I’ve walked away with, having read both the Old and New Testaments, is that there’s, like, only one God. Okay, so polytheism doesn’t quite jibe with the Bible or Christianity. Don’t let that bother you. It is, after all, a mere theological formality. A polytheist would have just as good a view of reality from which to govern as a monotheist, right? RIGHT? (Don’t get me wrong: I suspect that Obama is at least a bi-theist: himself and then [maybe] the God of the Bible.)
Theological nitpicking aside, what positive spin could a Christian who is a sold-out GOPer put on Romney’s comments? Is America the hope of the earth? I thought that, like, Jesus was the hope of this fallen earth? Again, maybe I’ve just misread the Bible (or not studied the Book of Mormon closely enough), but what gives?
