When it comes to people who insist that they talk to God, where is the line between those who could make it to the White House and those who could get thrown into Arkham Asylum?

People have been waiting 2000 years for that dude to return, and when he does he endorses a f*cking politician?

Christians must be pissed off.

Why doesn't the left do this.  Don't change any of your positions but tell people that god or jesus endorses you.

I would assume she is on the left based on her positions.

Candidate endorsed by a foreigner.

Florida?  -- Check.

Crazy shiat about Jesus? -- Check.

1990's Creole-language chart topping hit?  -- Check.

Wheeelp, earned my vote.

"Free health care for those in need" is lefty I suppose. Batshiat crazy is bipartisan.

Jesus endorsing candidates in dreams, brawling politicians, voo-doo doll curses, free soap?

This story has it all.

Thank you, Florida Tag.

That's nothing - her opponent is endorsed by Jehovah.

She created a place called "the people's clinic", wants to provide free health care for those in need and social programs for seniors.  She's a lot closer to the ideals Jesus promoted than any republican candidate I've ever seen.

No.

If the bible couldn't get the details of tyre's destruction/rebirth right(said won't be rebuilt because god doesn't want it too and yet it was rebuilt) what chance does this jackass have of accurately interpreting god's will?

An endorsement is usually made by the endorser to the public.

What, like a burning bush or a piece of toast with his face on it? God's a pretty reclusive guy.

"Anna Pierre, RN is endorsed by Jesus Christ," says a campaign-style flyer on her Facebook page, which says she'll advocate for "FREE healthcare" and social service programs for the elderly.

I'm not as upset as I thought I'd be.
She's not advocating for the death of gays or the destruction of science, but for the help for the less fortunate.
I think certain Jesuses in the bible would endorse her.

No, like Luke 9:35:

And there came a voice out of the cloud, saying, This is my beloved Son: hear him.

THAT's an endorsement!

So we can just make up our endorsements? Can we also make up the offices for which we're running? Vote Farker Walter Paisley for Supreme Benevolent Pseudo Overlord of the American West Coast. He is endorsed by the god Dionysus as well as dead mortals such as Benjamin Franklin, The Marquis de Sade, Cleopatra, Caravaggio, Aleister Crowley, Louise Brooks, Charlie Chaplin, and Caligula's horse Incitatus.

  I hope for the best  - and hate to pop the balloon here - but being a native of this area for more than one merry-go-round ride I won't wait for this "free" clinic to benefit more than a no-show staff

  This district is infamous for the worst of small town politics and, as fark knows, the state itself ... well....

Mugato: When it comes to people who insist that they talk to God, where is the line between those who could make it to the White House and those who could get thrown into Arkham Asylum?


I'm pretty sure it's somewhere around "people who believe in a being no one has ever seen or seen evidence of for no logical reason and let random strangers claiming to speak for this being dictate how they run their lives."  Sadly these people are the ones RUNNING the asylum.

Most likely, Jesus just facepalms and deletes the "FW: FW: FW: FW: blah blah blah" emails he gets from his dad.

If there were any justice in the world, anyone who says "God told me to run for office" would be landslide defeated for their hubris.

Instead, we're starting to see why the "Divine Right of Kings" worked.

You would think she would at least have a sweatstain of Jesus' face or something.

I mean, how dumb does she think the voters are?

Kinda hard to believe there's a city that thinks their mayoral election is SO IMPORTANT, it requires a primary first.

Every single election should be "so important." Vote for who you want in the primary, take the top X vote-getters and/or those who got X% of the vote, and run 'em off in the general. What's so hard about that?

You're saying Miami's primaries aren't party-based? That makes even less sense. In my city, it's not unusual to have five to ten mayoral candidates in the general election -- a couple of identified Democrats, a couple of identified Republicans, a couple of hard-core independents, maybe a Libertarian, maybe a Vegetarian, and who knows what else. If no one gets 50%+1 (and they often don't), there's a run-off. What's so hard about that?

I've thought it over, and I'm going to vote Lucifer.
