Don't look now, but the Republican Party has a religion problem:
One beautifully fine morning God and Saint Peter are taking their breakfast together in one of their favorite spots, a lovely arbor set on the side of one of heaven's highest hills where God often comes to view the whole of his creation. As God spreads some fresh honey on a warm whole wheat bagel, Peter looks over and notices some activity taking place on earth in the vicinity of “The New World” God has such high hopes for.
“Look Lord,” Peter says excitedly, “there seems to be something brewing with that bunch of pilgrims that set off on their own to find a new way to worship you just a short while ago.”
“Why it looks like revolution,” God replied. “It's about time they got 'round to it” he smiled. “Imagine Peter; no more Monarchs, no more Aristocracy, no more Caesars, no more Pharaohs oppressing my children. A new nation of religious pilgrims forming a new kind of government; of, by and for themselves. Don't you see the beauty of it? They will be the government. They will have the power to end sickness and hunger. By sharing their resources they can end homelessness and poverty. They will be a true reflection of my love...,” he paused.
“As long as the Republicans don't muck it up.”
“What are the chances of that?” sighed Peter.
“Oy vey” God sighed back “Oy vey.”
And so it goes....
