Nothing "Cleansing" About This Light

“I was sitting next to an Army Officer. The next thing I knew Maj. Nelson
was telling me about an impending flood of Biblical proportions.
Evidently, Muslims are planning on overtaking all the Christian nations of
the world — we can’t allow the world of our forerunners to fall. We
Christan nations have got to put together a covenant to combat this — a
coalition simply will not do. This is an enemy that will keep coming, but
rest assured their defeat will be a legendary achievement. The only answer
to their Basques, their ETAs, and their Spartans is our might and the
cleansing white light of our Religion may it spread across the Universe!”

- Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX)

I have no idea what Representative Gohmert considers “his” religion, with its crusading, cleansing white light and might. But I’ll continue to give my heart to the religion of the Lord Jesus Christ, whose Gospel condemns lying, bearing false witness, stirring up factions and divisions, and, most of all, speaking with the kind of hate that Gohmert so energetically vomits here.

    And several others will follow suit. This type of grandstanding has been the hallmark of politicians seeking the limelight. There is an old Sanskrit satire which lists a number of ways of being noticed. It ends with:

    “Stand naked in the market square and bray like an ass,
    Employ any means available to you,
    But be famous.”
