ON Monday, the Blount County Board of Commissioners will consider a resolution asking God to spare their region from “His coming wrath” because the “lawless judiciary” of the U.S. is forcing them recognize same-sex marriages.

The proposal has been put forth by Commissioner Karen Miller and is listed on the docket as “Resolution condemning judicial tyranny and petitioning God’s mercy. (Resolution 15-10-006)”


I guess locally there is no separation between church and state.




Miller’s resolution calls upon “all of the Officers of the State of Tennessee, the Governor, the Attorney General, and the members of the Tennessee Legislature,” to join the commission in saving “natural marriage,” and defending “the the Moral Standards of Tennessee.”

Fearing that may be too little too late, the passed resolution would also beseech God to not destroy Blount County — like He did Sodom and Gomorrah — for the sins of America.


Blount County must view itself as a very holy place. for....




Presumably God will hold off His wrath until the resolution can be considered as it is listed as seventh on the docket — right after the board takes up compensation levels for Blount County School Board Members.


From you just can't make this **** up department....

Can't they petition God's mercy without getting the state legislature involved??? I thought that's what prayer was all about.

Sounds like a theocratic practice. Right?

These people don't believe in God...

They believe in The Devilish...

They make idols of men in sports gear and prostrate at the alter of the 2nd Amendment...
There is nothing pious about these people...

They do not want to stave off God's wrath for good reasons...
They do so out of selfish preservation...


Otherwise they'd pray for the "sinners"...
Instead they pray for themselves.

Im willing to bet that The Almighty laughs at such antics.

Well if we can petition God thru a local legislature. I wonder if we could also get God to do something about the smell coming from our sewer treatment plant and the potholes out on 550. I'm convinced that only by an act of God, will these pressing issues be addressed. They always blow off the residents at the city council meeting. We should call down Gods wrath on them!!

What a load of INSANITY. And a WASTE of time and money. Utterly ridiculous.

I would like to propose a resolution for Kentucky and Tennessee to be forcibly expelled from the union - with high walls to keep them all INSIDE. I wouldn't miss them at all, except for the lovely terrain - and I can find those same conditions in other places.

Maybe we could petition to God to hasten the rapture and get it overwith. So we can get on with our lives without their drivel interrupting us.

sigh.

Chicken and Bourbon do not a paradise make.

Fine, if you're that concerned, chicken and bourbon can be their exports.

This is kinda jumping the gun a bit don't ya think?
They haven't even been presented with the proposal yet alone approved anything.
Shouldn't we wait till they have a chance to laugh her out of the room before we condem anybody but the nutter that proposed the resolution?

If Heaven were filled with fried chicken and Bourbon I would sign up for the Rapture yesterday.

Separation of Church and State merely means the State cannot dictate what church you must belong and go to.

Unfortunately, and oxymoronically fortunately, local governments have the right to make laws that fit their demographic so long as it doesn't impede federal law.

Thus, the right to be utterly...dumbfoundedly...slack-jawed and drooling stupid in making laws.

For the sins of America?

If God were going to punish us for our actual sins - directly and immediately - Tennessee would have been nothing but salt long before Karen was even born
