Quote# 90610

I prayed for a Romney/Ryan win, if it was in God's will.

I guess it wasn't.

I also prayed that God have mercy on us, if Obama won.

I feel sick to my stomach.

My atheist, Obama-voting DH has been insufferable. "We win!" "Humanity wins!" "No war with Iran!"

I can't help the feeling (and I told him so) that having elected Obama, this nation is going to get what it deserves.

My daughter (senior in college, another unbeliever who voted for Obama) tried to chat me tonight (about the same time they were calling it for Obama). I couldn't talk with her. I had had enough at that point from DH (who doesn't know when to be quiet), and knew that if I engaged with her, I would probably say something that would fracture our bond.

I try to tell myself that God allowed this, and it is all going to work towards fulfilling His will, and Biblical prophecy.

I want to scream, though, at the people who voted for Obama. I have a hard time reminding myself that so many are spiritually blinded, and misled by the forces of evil.

Praying for God to give me the strength to not lash out, and that He have mercy on our country (though we don't deserve it), and on His children, and also on their unbelieving family and friends (especially, that their eyes may be opened and that they may be saved).

When you swallow Fox poop, you get worms in your brain.

Romney/Ryan are more important in your life than you daughter?

11/11/2012 5:12:34 AM


Well, at least s/he's trying to reign it in.

Why would a Romney win be within God's will? According to your beliefs Romney is a Satanic cultist. But I guess that's one of the aspects of your religion it's okay to conveniently forget when the alternative is having a black guy as President, kinda like how all the "women should not have power over men" thing went out the window when Palin was running.

11/11/2012 5:19:08 AM


Yeah, we know your candidate lost...

What about getting over it and finding something else to whine about ?

I don't know, there's the new Season of MLP:FiM, Black Ops II, ACIII... You still haven't figured out something to bash ?

11/11/2012 5:20:37 AM


At least her husband and daughter sound sane.

11/11/2012 5:21:24 AM


"misled by the forces of evil."

Someone really needs to take a close look at themselves and their reasons for supporting the worst Republican agenda ever.

You know, considering these folks think Obama is the Antichrist, I don't know what is upsetting them so much. If he is the Antichrist, then the rapture is near, and isn't that what they are looking forward to? Stupid fundies.

What I would say if it was possible to post this on Rapture Ready without it being immediately removed:

Hey idiot. Whenever we atheists bring up the massive suffering in the world that YOUR worldview would claim is God's will, you try to defend your god by claiming that he can't intervene without ruining human free will in the process. Leaving aside for a second the fact that this really only can be used as a defense of war-caused suffering, not the sorts of natural disasters we're talking about, the fact is that this is a universal belief among you fundamentalists: That God will not intervene to cause mortals to make the choices God would prefer because doing that would ruin human free will.

If you actually believe that and aren't a hypocrite about it, then why the hell are you claiming that same God would influence an election and therefore if it doesn't go the way you like that must be God's will. How can you imagine anything that is a more obvious more direct example of a choice made by humans that God cannot control without ruining free will that an election, for Christ's sake. Are you daft?

What's a "DH"?

"What's a 'DH'?"

Why, "Designated Hitter", of course. This would rule out the possibility of "gardner" here living in a National League team's home city.

(/baseball humor)

Seriously, though: "DH" = "Dear Husband".

11/11/2012 6:58:36 AM


You're not actually living in the real world, are you?

11/11/2012 7:04:32 AM

It's funny how you think the people who voted against the party that represents the exact OPPOSITE of everything Jesus taught are the ones who are "spiritually blinded".

11/11/2012 7:13:19 AM

@ Spukikitty

For some reason, "dear" is part of internet shorthand for family members, as follows:

DH- dear) husband
DW- (dear) wife
DD- (dear)daughter
DS- (dear)son

So, being subservient to your imaginary friend is more important to you than having a healthy, honest and prouctive relationship with your husband and daughter? Seems about right for folks that believe the Earth is 6,000 years old, that their friend flooded the planet and sent the extra water out into space, that snakes and donkeys talk and that ancient zombies witll return "any day now.....yep, any day". You could only be more pathetic by wandering the streets in rags whilst urinating yourself and licking every third shop window.

At least this person knows better than to destroy their family over a bunch of rich fucks sitting in Washington. Now they just need to remember you don't always get your way and praying really hard isn't going to do a damn thing.

11/11/2012 7:59:33 AM


Yes because voting for Obama is just like voting for Satan.

Do you hear yourself when you speak?

I'm sure your family thinks you're just a little bundle of positivity.

Honestly, I'm baffled as to how an atheist could be married to someone who seriously posts to Rapture Ready. Unless they're just in the marriage for the lulz...

Of course engaging in any sort of political discussion would "fracture" things, Jesus Christ. We all know the ignorant, racist, untrue BS that's spewed around RR... That's some intolerable shit. At least gardener knows how to shut up, I'll give her that.

11/11/2012 8:15:57 AM


"I prayed for a Romney/Ryan win, if it was in God's will."

- In other words, you prayed, "God, do what you want."

Doubting Thomas

So wait... it was God's will that Obama win reelection, but he's going to punish the country for it anyway? What a sadistic, twisted, cruel deity. "I'm going to make people of a nation elect an evil man as their leader and then punish them dearly for it."

And how much do you want to bet this lady would have been gloating to her husband & daughter had Romney won?

11/11/2012 8:32:48 AM

Doubting Thomas


That's exactly what I mentioned in the next thread. You'd think that all the rapturites would have voted for the person they think is the antichrist in order to bring about the rapture, especially if it's God's will. For a bunch of people so fixated & eager to see the final apocalyptic battle between good & evil, they sure hate to help make it happen.

"spiritually blinded"...i keep thinking that must refer to people who can't see what isn't actually there.

11/11/2012 8:53:38 AM


@Deep Search

Here, I think, "unbeliever" may mean "Christian who doesn't buy into the Rapture Ready Death Cult". Maybe one of those "moderate Christians" or (gasp) "liberal Christians" who aren't True Christians(tm).

11/11/2012 9:12:38 AM


"I prayed for a Romney/Ryan win, if it was in God's will."

What the hell is this supposed to mean?

"Dear God,

Please let Romney win the Presidency. If you want to."

What exactly is the point of prayer if it's ultimately up to your god and no amount of whining is going to dissuade him anyway?
