Being judgmental during these final days of Holy Week is probably politically and spiritually incorrect, but I just can't resist this post from Bilerico's guest writer Annette Gross. As you know, I avoid political controversy here at Sacred Ordinary--partly because I know it can cause a firestorm of ugly comments--and you know that after my post yesterday that I hate confrontation. But, we also live in a great country where we have freedom of speech, Thank God--and it's certainly no secret that I am not enamored with the current administration. Plus, I personally think this is so darned funny. In actuality, the real 23rd Psalm is one I turn to again and again to gain strength in hard times when I feel separated from God. But, get ready to laugh--I hope, with this parody.
The 23rd Qualm
George Bush is my shepherd; I dwell in want.
He maketh logs to be cut in national forests.
He leadeth trucks into the still wilderness.
He restoreth my fears.
He leadeth me in the paths of international disgrace for his ego's sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of pollution and war,
I will find no exit, for thou art in office.
Thy tax cuts for the rich and thy media control, they discomfort me.
Thou preparest an agenda of deception in the presence of thy religion.
Thou anointest my head with foreign oil.
My health insurance runneth out.
Surely megalomania and false patriotism shall follow me all the days of
And my jobless child shall dwell in my basement forever.
