Scott Walker Believes He’s Following Orders from the Lord | The Progressive

Oh, duh. It's suddenly so much clearer.

Scott Walker Believes He’s Following Orders from the Lord | The Progressive

The dogmatic unwillingness of Wis. Gov. Scott Walker to negotiate or to compromise with Democrats or unions has surprised many people in the state. One explanation for his attitude may be found in his religious convictions.

In a talk to the Christian Businessmen’s Committee in Madison on November 13, 2009, Walker, who was raised by a Baptist preacher, spoke about his personal relationship with God, his “walk to Christ,” and his belief in the need to “trust and obey” the Lord.
And Jesus as we know, hated the poor, too.

Being led by Christ is certainly better than being misled by the false and denounced religion of corn ethanol of Al Gore. Jesus fed the 5000, vs. Al Gore starving people with higher corn prices precipitated by his false corn ethanol preaching.

So if I had a T-shirt that said,

"God Bless Scott Walker" on front


"Al Gore, false corn ethanol prophet" on back

Which side would offend you more?

I would be fascinated by the answer.

"Walker said that God has told him what to do every step of the way, including about what jobs to take, whom to marry, and when to run for governor"

I consider myself both religious and patriotic, but I have an immediate distrust of politicians who wrap themselves in the flag or claim divine guidance.

So Kevin, you too simply do and say whatever the voices in your head tell you to do?

... now it all fits.

Very funny.

So how offended would you be by that T-shirt?
