Rapture

January 5th, 2011

My open letter to Speaker Boehner, inspired by The new House majority will waste no time targeting Obama’s initiatives (Washington Post 1/05/11) and Enraptured by the Second Coming (Washington Post 1/01/11) about a group that believes the Rapture is coming… on May 21, 2011!

“If thou wilt be perfect, go and sell that thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven… And again I say unto you: it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.” — Jesus


For you and your GOP friends, it is indeed the Second Coming.

Congratulations on again the House majority party becoming.


Congratulations on that rapturous joy that you’re feeling,

As you get to work, the last two years’ progress repealing.


Congratulations, Speaker Boehner, on all those fresh GOP faces,

But what will you do when the Rapture your new-found majority erases?


You’ve got less than five months before it’s scheduled to arrive

And you of your hard-won new position deprive.


Assuming, that is, that Republicans are the ones raptured away.

(At least that’s what you all expect, anyway.)


But given your disregard for the unfortunate and love for the rich,

You ostensibly religious rightists may find out that Rapture’s a bitch.
