The American Taliban strikes again, not surprisingly in Alabama, where Gov.-elect Robert Bentley (R) told a Martin Luther King Day crowd that they were all his brothers and sisters – if and only if they are Christian and have “been saved.”

Yes, on a day dedicated to teaching justice, equality, togetherness and unity, the future governor of Alabama took it upon himself to say that although he doesn’t see color, he just can’t be friends with someone who’s different than him.

I was elected as a Republican candidate. But once I became governor … I became the governor of all the people. I intend to live up to that. I am color blind,” Bentley said in a short speech given about an hour after he took the oath of office as governor.

Then Bentley, who for years has been a deacon at First Baptist Church in Tuscaloosa, gave what sounded like an altar call.

“There may be some people here today who do not have living within them the Holy Spirit,” Bentley said. ”But if you have been adopted in God’s family like I have, and like you have if you’re a Christian and if you’re saved, and the Holy Spirit lives within you just like the Holy Spirit lives within me, then you know what that makes? It makes you and me brothers. And it makes you and me brother and sister.”

Whoa! Look at that headline! Harsh words, right? Look, if we wrote what we really thought of Jim DeMint (R-Hell) we’d probably actually get in some kind of trouble. Maybe with Jesus, maybe with Satan. Whatever.

The bottom line is, in the war against getting anything done in Congress Jim DeMint is a leader. A Supreme honcho. The teabagger favorite and all-around piece of human garbage has decided that Congress is engaged in the (fake) war on Christmas. He says the push to get the massive spending bill through the Senate in the days before Dec. 25 is — and we’re not kidding — sacrilegious. Just read for yourself!

You can’t jam a major arms control treaty right before Christmas,” he told POLITICO. “What’s going on here is just wrong. This is the most sacred holiday for Christians. They did the same thing last year – they kept everybody here until (Christmas Eve) to force something down everybody’s throat. I think Americans are sick of this.”

He’s right about one thing: Americans are sick. They’re sick of obstructionists blocking shit for the sake of blocking it. They’re sick of the two parties not being able to compromise about anything. And — we can only speak for ourselves in this case — they’re sick of fucking assholes like Jim DeMint using religion as an opportunity to be a cock. Does this fucking asshole know how many Christians work on Christmas? What a fuckface.

This is an actual press release from Gov. Steve Beshear (R-KY). Again, this is not an Onion article – this is real. (Click photo for full press release)

Ya hear that, Kentucky? You’re building Noah’s Ark! You officially have the technological savvy of people who lived 7,000 years ago (or, more specifically, never lived).

Here at SCFOM, we like our sports. What we don’t like, though, is the terrible habit athletes have of thanking God for every single thing they do. David Ortiz hits a home run; thanks God. Kurt Warner wins the Super Bowl; thanks God. Floyd Mayweather punches another man in the head for 10 rounds; thanks God.

It’s all so stupid, the idea that God wants Floyd Mayweather to win more than his poor opponent or that he wants David Ortiz to get hits against the Yankees (possible). But why doesn’t the proverbial shoe ever go on the other foot? Why doesn’t anyone ever call out God when something terrible happens?

Enter Buffalo Bills wide receiver Steve Johnson:

We don’t all agree on everything, especially when it comes to politics, but with soaring deficits, mounting debt and Baby Boomers who are about to blow up Social Security, we should be agreeing on more. So as a starting point, can we all agree that John Shimkus (R-IL) should NOT be the chairman of the House Energy and Commerce Committee? I don’t mean this in a partisan way. Elections have consequences, blah blah blah, but seriously…THIS GUY!!

Rep. John Shimkus (R-IL) — who claimed this week he is “uniquely qualified among a group of talented contenders to lead the Energy and Commerce Committee” — said that climate change should not concern us since God has already promised not to destroy the Earth,” the Toronto Star reports.

Said Shimkus: “The Earth will end only when God declares it’s time to be over. Man will not destroy this Earth. This Earth will not be destroyed by a Flood. I do believe that God’s word is infallible, unchanging, perfect.”

I’m being serious: is there any reason we can’t all agree on this?

Crazy leftist commies Interpol are following in the footsteps of hippie stoner-socialist Gen. David Petraeus in warning of dire circumstances if Florida freedom-lover Pastor Terry Jones follows through with his decision to burn Korans to commemorate 9/11. From Talking Points Memo:

Interpol today warned its 188 member countries that there may be a higher threat of terrorism if a Florida fringe pastor burns Korans on Saturday as planned.

“One of INTERPOL’s primary functions is to prevent crime, and given that we have been made aware of a significant threat to public safety – an assessment which we share – it is our duty to ensure that we pass this information on to law enforcement agencies around the globe so that they can take appropriate measures,” Interpol Secretary General Ronald K. Noble said in a press release.
