Voting For God In Texas

Filed Under (The HELL You Say!) by admin on 03-03-2010

I voted for God today. It caused me to pause. For some reason having to actually dial a “Yes” box on my handy dandy electric voting machine and pressing select, for God, seemed kind of odd. But I did it. My question is, why did I need to?

 

The Ballot Proposition description says, “Public Acknowledgement of God: The use of the word “God”, prayers, and the Ten Commandments should be allowed at public gatherings and public educational institutions, as well as be permitted on government buildings and property.” Yes or No.

 

Do you find that as strange as I do? In my over half a century on this planet, in this particular nation, I never would have imagined I would have to vote for God. I wonder if His/Her/It’s chances are any better than Debra Medina’s? I voted for her too.

 

I mean, I know I had a too good to be true start, which is why I get confused these days. The first time I ever got to vote I voted for my own father. He was running for precinct committeeman, and he won. A humble, but necessary and important political position was filled that election by a good man who cared about his country. Having served it well in the Air Force, he extended that love for the principles and system he defended by standing watch in his neighborhood. He did a good job.

 

That early experience skewed my perception of “the system”. I thought good men ran for office and served their country with integrity, honesty, and pride. Silly me. Back then, no one needed to vote for God. God was already in office.

 

I hope people vote for God. I think He/She/It would do at least as good a job as my dad. I’m trying to imagine the type of person that would vote “No” for God. I would be interested in the thought process involved to come to that conclusion. So, I guess I just have to say, I hope God wins. And thanks to Texas for putting Him/Her/It on the ballot.
