because 'no entangling alliances.'

God's aim is clearly off as He is punishing Jerry "The King" Lawler instead of the rightful perpetrator, Hulk Hogan.

"Times247" = "Washington TImes" if you're keeping score at home. I apparently haven't -- it's been around since January of this year and I'm just now noticing.
 
2012-09-11 06:14:03 AM
Or, you know, we could blame the former administration that was in power during the attacks.

WTF? has the Moonie Times changed it's tag to fool unsuspecting Farkers into clicking on that link?
 
2012-09-11 06:21:38 AM
Seems like "God" and hs various alter-aliases had a lot to do with 9/11 in the first place.
 
2012-09-11 06:21:53 AM
Yeah, cuz Jesus did so much to help out that day.
 
2012-09-11 06:22:36 AM

How nice.
Obama sought solace form 9/11 by blowing the living shinola out of Osama bin Ladin.
 
2012-09-11 06:24:28 AM
If they aren't repealing PATRIOT and disbanding the TSA in remembrance of our freedoms lost, then they can STFU.
 
2012-09-11 06:25:42 AM
I don't recall anyone seeking solace in their religion. They were too pissed off over all the football games being cancelled.
 
2012-09-11 06:26:56 AM
I demand the President mentions Spider man in all his speeches!
 
2012-09-11 06:30:18 AM
God caused 9/11.
 
2012-09-11 06:30:21 AM
Stop letting bin Ladan have so much power over the present.

I just noticed yesterday on a wall calendar, 9/11 was marked as "Patriot Day". Who the hell came up with that? I don't need more jingoism in my life.

As someone of Scandinavian descent and total comic book nerd I think that writer should fark himself for not criticizing Obama for failing to mention Odin and maybe Thor Odinson as well. And as someone who was almost a Classics minor, I want to add Zeus/Jupiter and maybe a few Meso-American, Native American, and African gods as well (off the top of my head Quetzalcoatl, Coyote, Ananzi).
/not even getting into other traditions but you all get my idea (Mazda? Admittedly I'm less familiar with say Asian gods).
 
2012-09-11 06:37:16 AM
The attackers also took solace in their religion.

DjangoStonereaver: God caused 9/11.


Pffft...9/11 was caused by the ACLU, the abortionists, the pagans, the feminists, the gays and lesbians, and People for the American Way.

Wow. Conservatives are so bereft of answers that they can't even handle issues that are settledmand finished. Next up, they demand recognition of the Gulf of Tonkin incident to renew the US-Vietnam bilateral trade agreement.

Well, I took solace in my boyfriend after 9/11, and you don't see me complaining that Obama didn't mention anal sex.

Oh, poor, pitiful god. If Obama leaves him unmentioned, he's absolutely heartbroken. The fact that god's followers need someone in a position of power to talk about him in order to validate their beliefs probably makes him feel like a third wheel, and who wants their powerless, clingy little god to feel left out?

Cheer up, lil buddy.
 
2012-09-11 06:50:52 AM
I (a very green, progressive type) was very happy to give Bush support after the attacks. But the first thing Bush did was try to capitalize on the event politically. He was a worm here at best.

So true. I know I immediately solaced in Jesus' and Christianity's strong message of and emphasis on retributive and punitive vengeance and the abandonment of core principles under threat of violence.

Congress, of course... it hasn't really caught on yet, everybody still just calls it 9/11.

From le wiki:
U.S. House of Representatives Joint Resolution 71 was approved by a vote of 407-0 on October 25, 2001. It requested that the President designate September 11 of each year as "Patriot Day". President George W. Bush signed the resolution into law on December 18, 2001 (as Public Law 107-89[1]). It is a discretionary day of remembrance. On September 4, 2002, President Bush used his authority created by the resolution and proclaimed September 11, 2002 as Patriot Day.
On this day, the President requests that the American flag be flown at half-staff at individual American homes, at the White House, and on all U.S. government buildings and establishments, home and abroad. The President also asks Americans to observe a moment of silence beginning at 8:46 A.M. (Eastern Daylight Time), the time the first plane struck the North Tower of the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001.

Huh. And it took me a full decade to notice the name change. Granted, we've had a lot of other crap on that day already.

"President Obama's proclamation marking the September 11th terrorist attacks did not include any mention of God."

Should he have mentioned how God could have stopped it but didn't? Thanks for that, God.

See, Patriot Day just confuses the living hell out of Mainers and Massachusettians. We look at it and go "shiat, tax day already?"

After 9/11 I did not seek out religion for solace.

I sought out Bourbon and old Marvin Gaye albums.

Anyone who tells you different is a liar.

"note how Americans sought solace in their religion in the aftermath of the Al-Qaeda attacks"

Speak for yourselves, christophiles.
 
2012-09-11 07:53:22 AM
The Republican insistence on constantly mentioning God has lost them my vote. And I'm a Christian.
 
2012-09-11 07:55:19 AM
Religion is part of the reason 9/11 happened in the first place. Pray on folks.
 
2012-09-11 07:57:05 AM
As a Jedi, I'm disgusted that Obama neglected to mention the Force at all.

/Not really a Jedi, not really disgusted.
//Feel free to fill in your own "We felt a great disturbance" speech here.
 
2012-09-11 08:09:45 AM
They didn't only take solace in God, but in their guns, also. Let a democrat mention that, though, and they go apeshiat.
 
2012-09-11 08:10:37 AM
Obama encouraged this bullshiat with the platform shenanigans at the convention. Republiacns thought they saw an opening. This is what happens when you enable crazy people.

You're talking about people who give mitt romney credit for killing Osama bin Laden. Truth is merely inconvenient.
