This whole thing just about sums up every problem I have with the GOP. It's almost like they have no clue of the principles our country was founded on.Just look at it from his point of view..In his eyes and in the eyes of his constituents in the state, he's a hero that's fighting the good fight and sticking it to the tyrannical, increasingly secular (evil) government.
I think he's off his rocker too, considering the position he holds... but I can see why he feels he has the support to make such a statement.
ETA: I just read that he actually filed an official proclamation. This is not and will never be ok. Regardless of which religion it is--i'm not trying to pick on Christianity. Crazy that this is actually a story. Double facepalm.
So Khaleesi will be the leader of Westeros?Isaiah 66:15-16
For behold, the LORD will come in fire And His chariots like the whirlwind, To render His anger with fury, And His rebuke with flames of fire. For the LORD will execute judgment by fire And by His sword on all flesh, And those slain by the LORD will be many.
I heard a lecture claiming the reason the U.S. Has such anti-intellectualism in its DNA, is that the initial "education " during western expansion was evangelical preachers preaching against east coast eliteI don't know if we're actually there yet, but it sure seems like the groundwork is being laid for something like that to be possible.

Of course the country was "founded" by religious intolerants
Slavery was backed by the church
The kkk is a "christian " organization
Then there's father coughlin and other 'christian' antisemites
Falwell et al bringing religious intolerance into the White House
And now bible thumping idiots wanting to re-fight the crusades
One cannot serve two masters (bible and constitution) but they really don't follow either so
For decisions and revisions which a minute will reverse..........And indeed there will be time
To wonder, "Do I dare?" and, "Do I dare?"
Time to turn back and descend the stair,
With a bald spot in the middle of my hair—
[They will say: "How his hair is growing thin!"]
My morning coat, my collar mounting firmly to the chin,
My necktie rich and modest, but asserted by a simple pin—
[They will say: "But how his arms and legs are thin!"]
Do I dare
Disturb the universe?
In a minute there is time
For decisions and revisions which a minute will reverse.
For I have known them all already, known them all;
Have known the evenings, mornings, afternoons,
I have measured out my life with coffee spoons;
I know the voices dying with a dying fall
Beneath the music from a farther room.
So how should I presume?
i was a major elliot freak in college - i typically don't like when poets read their won work (except Frost -always liked his readings - never liked Yeats')Nice Prufrock signature!

I had a cassette tape of him reading this and other poems that my sister gave me for Christmas many many years ago that Katrina devoured. He was so old when reading it that it was perfectly fitting for that one in particular.
Tell all the truth but tell it slant —
Success in Circuit lies
Too bright for our infirm Delight
The Truth's superb surprise
As Lightning to the Children eased
With explanation kind
The Truth must dazzle gradually
Or every man be blind —
