Perkins: Stop Saying “God Bless America”

  • JaniceInToronto

    Holy Shit! He’s right. Stop it! Stop it right now!

    • Gustav2

      Take ‘God’ out of the Pledge! Take ‘God’ off the money! Take ‘God’ off government buildings and out of our courtrooms! Do it NOW!

      Edit: The biggest push back on all the anti-commie adding of ‘God’ everywhere in the 1950’s came from mainline Protestants who felt it was inappropriate.

      • KarenAtFOH

        God Bless the Protestants.

  • Phil

    …and send money.

    • kcken

      Exactly. They’ve replaced AMEN at the end of their rants with “send money” …

      • BobSF_94117

        What do you think “amen” means in the original Aramaic?

        • B Snow

          Okay, I laughed out loud at that. 😀

          • hajaxavier

            how else would you laugh? i remember when the modifer was “to myself”. 😉

          • B Snow

            As opposed to snickering quietly, I guess. 🙂

    • Harley

      Why ask for money. All they have to do is pray and all the money will be provided by Jesus. It’s in the bible. Don’t they read?

  • Treg Brown

    Agreed! Now let’s change the Pledge of Allegiance to omit the God part as well.

    • Amen.

      …..wait, no.

      • Treg Brown

        Ramen? 🙂

        • TampaZeke

          …and Pizzapon you.

      • Gustav2

        Make it so.

        • Why didn’t I think of that?!

        • BobSF_94117

          Which is what “amen” originally meant…

          https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amen

          • That’s a nice fantasy…

            “Amen” in the mouth of any monotheist has always, and WILL always mean “or else!”

            “God! Give me what I demand or I’ll quit believing in you!”

            Prayer as hubris, belief as blackmail.

            Such is the reality of monotheism.

          • Gustav2

            This Lutheran pastor’s son is shocked!

      • bkmn

        A simple “hell yes!” will do.

    • JT

      It was only added in 1954 under McCarthyism.

      • Octavio

        Yeah, ‘cuz communists were godless and ‘Merikuhns ain’t godless. Stupid as shit? Yes. But not godless.

    • Philly Mike

      I never thought I would agree with ANYTHING Perkins would say.

    • GeoffreyPS

      Agreed it makes us look silly to all the civilized countries.

    • Harley

      And off the currency as well.

    • Jeffg166

      That would be going back to the original version written by Francis Julius Bellamy a socialist baptist minister.

    • Joseph Miceli

      Hallelujah!!!!!

  • Jean-Marc in Canada

    Just as the founding fathers intended.

    • bambinoitaliano

      As oppose to the fondling father of Tony Perkin’s FRC.

  • Gest2016

    Sorry Tony, we won. And gays will be getting happily married long after your sordid, pointless life has come to its merciful end.

    • Bad Tom

      Actually, I know countless ways his life could come to an unmerciful end.
      But, I’m not allowed to share them.

      • Gest2016

        He could choke on a cock. Any volunteers?

        • Bad Tom

          Nope!
          But, that is one of the pleasanter unmerciful endings.
          Also, he could be a biter. Be sure you have your tetanus shot.

    God hasn’t blessed America ever since it built a country on the backs of indigenous people and slaves.

  • Octavio

    It is so surreal how christain ass wipes think they can tell everyone where to sit, think, say and do. I’ll start saying and writing god bless whatever I fucking like. And I’ll add “Hate Tony Perkinsinism!”

    • Ragnar Lothbrok

      That is SO spot ON, and I hate the term ” Spot On ” !!

    • Christopher

      God bless Satan. 😉

      • Octavio

        Naw. I don’t believe in Jeebuzz. So why would I believe in Satan? One morning while waiting for a table to have breakfast a little old lady not much older than me said, “Shit! This is taking forever!” Then she looked at me and apologized, commenting that she was probably going to hell for cursing. I told her I didn’t believe in that sort of thing (hell) and I doubted she had anything to worry about. The sudden look of fright on her face was a surprise. And she took a couple of steps away from me as if I was the devil. “You . . . don’t believe?” And it was obviously the first time she’d ever heard that someone did not believe in hell or her beloved satan. Nope. Not part of my schema. But I do know of and believe in a lot of other things that make the myth of hell and the devil sweet and warm children’s tales. 🙂

        • RaygunsGoZap

          For you!

    • GreatLakeSailor

      Craig Carter put it this way: “Other than telling us how to live, think, marry, pray, vote, invest, educate our children, and now, die, I think the Republicans have done a fine job of getting government out of our personal lives.”
      And I don’t know who Carter is, but he seems to have summed up SuperKookyChristoFascistexpialidocious (aka Republicans) quite well.

  • bambinoitaliano

    Gay Bless America? Dog Bless America? Money Bless America? NRA Bless America? Who is he Apple or McDonald trying to copyright the word god?

  • Pollos Hermanos

    Yes, by all means quit quoting that Irving Berlin show tune.

  • Dean Gold

    Did we reject when we accepted adultery, divorce, when we covered and defended pedophiles (priests, evangelical TV stars) etc etc etc. But show love to someone and its ICK and Fuck the F*GGOTS! Tony, you are sad. You are also revolting. And on the wrong side of history. How you can refer to a loving god when you are filled with and spew hate every day amazes, but the hypocrisy of those religious who cross over into fanaticism knows no bounds. How are you different from the Imams of the radical Islamist regiems who spew hate. You aren’t.

  • Ragnar Lothbrok

    We want the same things Toni. Go walk with the lord.
    ASAP.

    • Rocketeer500

      And make that a long walk……. off a short pier.

        That ends over an active volcano, or a feeding frenzy of great whites while you’re wearing you seal costume, …

          It is shark week, doncha know!

          • Snarkaholic

            In Tony’s world, EVERY week is shark week (the “P” in PMS stands for “Perpetual”)!

      • Snarkaholic

        …and then through the valley of the Shadow of Death…where God’s Rod and Staff will comfort thee, Tony!

  • Macbill

    Considering all the people we’ve killed in the name of America, the wedding parties we’ve bombed out of existence, is there any wonder Tony’s god is pissed?

    • GreatLakeSailor

      1 in 5 American children born into poverty. Fuck, I’m pissed about that, and while I’m rather godlike 😉 , instead of going on a petulant rampage, I’d go on a building spree showering the land with jobs building schools, sustainable water systems, green energy, etc., etc. Tony Duggar’s god would hurt people. Sad god duggar-types try to appease – no wonder they’re such awful people.

  • Corey

    The only appropriate response for Tony Perkins after seeing his CCC flag come down today…

  • madknits

    Bitch, please. Queen Elizabeth is still alive, so no one died and made you Queen. Shut the fuck up and stop giving orders as if you mattered.

    • Gest2016

      We will be watching him very closely for the rest of his life. People like Tony frequently turn to physical violence once they realize their verbal assaults no longer work. Tony is dangerous and unhinged.

            Mine would open up the realm of what Tonette would like to see in his perfect, all about me little country. You know, the place with no gays, minorities, any other religions. Nothing that was ever made by those excluded groups or those friendly towards them – no computers or any technology, no places to shop, no prepared foods, no cars – just “happy Xstains ” reading their BuyBulls, scratching a meager existence from all the crops they’ve grown and all the animals they’ve raised. Paradise!

  • Steverino

    So he agrees with Jeremiah Wright, now, only for a different reason?

    How ironic.

  • Mark McGovern

    Tony Perkins: Quintessential definition of “loud-mouthed shnook”. Sooooooo fucking tiresome…

    • David F.

      I thought it meant “festering, pustulent roid on a baboon’s anus”. Huh – you learn something new every day.

      • Bad Tom

        Your definition is more… evocative.

  • David in Palm Springs

    …and yet we’re all still waiting to see God’s wrath because of marriage equality. He could have done something about it TEN YEARS AGO when Massachusetts legalized same-sex marriage. Since there has been no wrath, we should all assume that God tacitly approves of civil equality for gay Americans… unless Tony Duggar can prove otherwise.

    After all these tears, Toney has finally found an outlet for the suppressed rage he has not been able to publicly express over being forced to treat blacks as equals.

    So, Tony, now we know the new Christofascist slogan: God fuck America!

    It’s good to see your true colors at last. Funny that they should be revealed by the colors of the rainbow flag.

  • geoffalnutt

    Absolutely!!!! As Christopher Hitchens once observed re Heaven/God: “I don’t want live in a celestial North Korea” This God is a Big Brother I will not have.

  • Chucktech

    Shockingly, he’s absolutely right. Enough with the gawd bless America jingoism.

    I was shocked to read, in a book by David Niose called “Fighting Back the Right,” that the first American president who used “God Bless America” at the end of a speech was none other than Richard Nixon. Since then, every goddam speech given by any president has had that hubristic, US-is-exceptional BS phrase in it, and if any president failed to say it, you just know there’d be howls of self righteous indignant wailing from the nutty bible crowd.

    • popebuck1

      Reagan was the first one to do it consistently.

      • People4Humanity

        My name is Ronald Reagan,
        and I approve this message!

    • GreatLakeSailor

      Eisenhower was the first to welcome Prosperity Jeebus to open Cabinet meetings.
      from: http://www.nytimes.com/2015/03/15/opinion/sunday/a-christian-nation-since-when.html

      In 1952, Mr. Graham went to Washington and made Congress his congregation. He recruited representatives to serve as ushers at packed revival meetings and staged the first formal religious service held on the Capitol steps. That year, at his urging, Congress established an annual National Day of Prayer. “If I would run for president of the United States today on a platform of calling people back to God, back to Christ, back to the Bible,” he predicted, “I’d be elected.”

      Dwight D. Eisenhower fulfilled that prediction. With Mr. Graham offering Scripture for Ike’s speeches, the Republican nominee campaigned in what he called a “great crusade for freedom.” His military record made the general a formidable candidate, but on the trail he emphasized spiritual issues over worldly concerns. As the journalist John Temple Graves observed: “America isn’t just a land of the free in Eisenhower’s conception. It is a land of freedom under God.” Elected in a landslide, Eisenhower told Mr. Graham that he had a mandate for a “spiritual renewal.”

      [snip]

      The first week of February 1953 set the dizzying pace: On Sunday morning, he was baptized; that night, he broadcast an Oval Office address for the American Legion’s “Back to God” campaign; on Thursday, he appeared with Mr. Vereide at the inaugural National Prayer Breakfast; on Friday, he instituted the first opening prayers at a cabinet meeting.

  • lymis

    He’s getting so shrill that it’s well past the point that there’s even room for speculation. He’s hiding something, and it’s something big, and it’s something awful. I’ve never seen a professional morals scold who wasn’t.

    I wonder what it is and when it will blow open.

    • Bad Tom

      Well, that fetus-in-a-jar thing was pretty damn weird.
      And, that’s public knowledge.

  • MikeBx2

    I’ve always thought it odd that these folks who believe there’s a god sending out “blessings” to particular countries, seem to think the evidence is based in who has the most money. Not in things like health, happiness and overall quality of life.

  • JT

    Shorter Perkins: “I’m taking my toys and I’m going home.”

    But where is his home now that he’s said his country should be fucked?

  • popebuck1

    I agree with him, surprisingly enough. Ending EVERY presidential speech with “…and may God continue to bless America” (or some variation) has rankled me ever since Reagan started the custom. That’s another Reagan legacy, like saluting his Marine guard when getting on or off Air Force One, which even GENERAL Eisenhower didn’t feel the need to do. But that was Reagan – always about the empty political gestures of patriotism and Godliness, even while doing the exact opposite with his actual policies.

    Ohhh myyyyyy Sky daddy won’t bless Murica..?

  • Jamie Brewer

    This reminds me of the “war on XMAS” battle that looms up every winter. Keep it up Tony, hopefully people will stop saying “God Bless America”. San Savage states it perfectly in his review of “Sarah Palin’s shit stain of a book”. I quote Dan”s review: ” Just as conservatives made patriotism toxic during the Vietnam War by conflating it with blind obedience to authority (“My country, right or wrong!”), modern conservatives have made “merry Christmas” toxic by associating it with Christian fundamentalism, religious intolerance, and the politics of imagined persecution.”

    Oh, I thought that the Obergefell decision actually was an example of God blessing America. So, I guess I can understand why Jerkins feels it’s no longer appropriate for people to say “God Bless America” anymore.

  • Galvestonian

    KATE SMITH if she was still alive would just smack Tonette so hard his family wouldn’t recognize him anymore. Listen to her version of ‘God Bless America’ and you’ll totally understand – she actually asked Irving Berlin to write it just before WWII. Check it out on youtube. Give you the friggin’ chills and makes you proud to be an American — unlike Tonette whos most probably a commie, pinko bastard.

  • Claude Jacques Bonhomme

    “God Bless America” can continue to exist as an iconic song… it’s part of the cultural heritage.

    Now, “In God We Trust” must be removed from coinage and currency, and “E Pluribus Unum” restored. Those are issued by the Government.

  • Cuberly

    Remember when his rants where little pissy fits about having the “debate”? The tactic of whining that it was all so uncivil and we needed to just sit and chat about it, or something. Even though it was just a bizarre stalling tactic on his part that would lead to nothing. Would toni ever back-off or accept our right to equality after winning said debate? Hell the debate was played out in courtrooms across the whole country.

    So now gawd, speaking through toni, has shrugged his shoulders and said fuck em, or us, or the entire country apparently. Because toni’s cult lost, we as a country aren’t following toni’s script so therefore gawd is fer realz upset. Yet again another bizare scare tactic. What evs.
