Anyone who really knows me, knows that I think Senator Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania is a prize idiot, to put it politely... I'm sorry to type, he's at it again... This time, he's leading "Justice Sunday III"... as if the first two were even necessary. If you ask me the "Saw" movies are more worth a third than "Justice Sundays." There's a protest petition started by the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee here:

Because I really like what I wrote in my petition signature, I'm going to post it here too... Pretty proud of my ability to use a search engine to find stuff for this one. Even dipped into one of Paul's Letters for the closer of the argument.


"It's pointless to try to reason with these people who are entirely unreasonable, because "a witless man can no more become wise than a wild donkey's colt can be born a man" (Job 11:12), but the elected and appointed officials of this country are not to be responsible to the teachings of any religion, only to the Constitution and to the American people and that is it, period, end of story. But since these persons who are participating in Justice Sunday III are who they are, and one should "answer a fool according to his folly, or he will be wise in his own eyes" (Prov 26:5), I present the following for their consideration: "Do not keep talking so proudly /or let your mouth speak such arrogance, /for the LORD is a God who knows, /and by him deeds are weighed." (1 Sam. 2:3); "Doubtless you are the people, /and wisdom will die with you!/But I have a mind as well as you; /I am not inferior to you. /Who does not know all these things?" (Job 12:2-3); "If only you would be altogether silent! /For you, that would be wisdom." (Job 13:5); "There are six things the LORD hates, / seven that are detestable to him: / haughty eyes, / a lying tongue, / hands that shed innocent blood, / a heart that devises wicked schemes, / feet that are quick to rush into evil, / a false witness who pours out lies / and a man who stirs up dissension among brothers." (Prov 6:15-19); "A man who lacks judgment derides his neighbor, / but a man of understanding holds his tongue." (Prov 11:12); "The way of a fool seems right to him, / but a wise man listens to advice." (Prov 12:15); "So, if you think you are standing firm, be careful that you don't fall!" (1 Cor. 10:12); "Do not deceive yourselves. If any one of you thinks he is wise by the standards of this age, he should become a "fool" so that he may become wise." (1 Cor. 3:18)."
