The last dregs of the Confederacy are in the midst of full frontal freakout mode.
South Carolina state Sen. Lee Bright (R) began debate about removing the Confederate flag from the statehouse grounds on Monday with a passionate plea for lawmakers to focus on same-sex marriage instead.
As the senators prepared to debate a measure that would remove the flag, Bright took to the floor to point out that President Barack Obama had sang “Amazing Grace” at the funeral for nine black church members in Charleston and then later that night the White House was illuminated in rainbow colors to celebrate a Supreme Court decision that legalized same-sex marriage.
“I watch the White House be lit up in the abomination colors!” Bright said. “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 robes who were not elected by you.”
The “take back our country” contingent of ‘Murica is, as Bob Cesca so eloquently puts it, “losing their shpadoinkle“. Power never voluntarily relinquishes anything, however, and when forced to, things invariably get ugly. Back to Sen. Bright:
Bright suggested that the state of South Carolina might have to stop issuing marriage licenses altogether.
“Now, I believe that the Christ teaches us to love the homosexual, but he also teaches us to stand in the gap against sin,” he opined. “And we need to make our stand. I know how people of all colors feel about this.”
“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.”
Marriage two weeks ago, sacrosanct cornerstone of American society and foundation of family life. This week, LOL why bother bros? Let’s kill marriage and punish everybody!
Republicans are the insane tantrum babies we always knew they were.
