The Bible Holds The Answers
Numbers 32:13: "And the LORD'S anger was kindled against Israel, and he made them wander in the wilderness forty years, until all the generation, that had done evil in the sight of the LORD, was consumed."
Now replace "Israel" with "the GOP," and contemporary American politics suddenly make a LOT more sense. And behold, a reason for hope: if Numbers got the numbers right, the Republicans should pull their head out of their collective ass by no later than 2041. Until then, expect to hear more ranting against gay couples getting married and straight women having sex without producing a baby nine months later.
