K-Lo Tweets: The Elmer Gantry Edition

Kathryn Jean Lopez is twittering the Glenn Beck rally, and evidently hasn't felt so...uplifted since Miss Carrie Prejean publicly declared her support for denying Americans their civil right to wed.

cnn views this as a foxnews rally on the mall, doesn't it?

I very seriously doubt that K-Lo knows Beck's Mormonism doesn't believe in the Holy Trinity. They believe that Jesus actually was a separate and distinct person. That is not Christian theology, of course. Not that she will care.

what we do agree on is God is the answer

Uh, right, and how many people have been killed fighting over which god provided the right answer?

Now now, it's important to find points of agreement with Al Qaeda.

FSM, I absolutely abhore religious demagogues!

One gets the feeling that K-Lo would have been elated if Osama bin Laden had been preaching on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial offering 10 percent tax rates for anyone making $250,000 a year or more, the public stoning of abortion doctors, the public Tasering of homosexuals, and the immediate appointment of Robert Bork and Jefferson Beauregard Sessions to the Supreme Court in place of Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan.

Religious extremist, thy name is K-Lo.

Susan--I am delighted to learn that K-Lo appears neither to understand, nor to care about, the Athanasian creed. The increasing dilution of the content of Christian belief in this country is a positive development for personal liberty, akin to the mutuation of a deadly virus into a less virulent form.

"the storm that is coming is not just an american storm but a human storm."

Hearing reactionaries, especially at this sort of gathering, talk about a coming storm makes me think of some premonitory lines from Rilke:

Look at them and see what they are like:

they move as though a wind were pushing them,
they rest as though a hand had stopped them.

In their eyes is the oncoming darkness
sweeping across summer's fields
before the storm.

Hell. All they need to do is hang Beck on a cross and the Douthats and the K-Los will swear he's J.C. and this is the Second Coming.
