Election 2012 = God's judgment

by Jeremy Hooper

After demonizing "The New Normal" (premiering tonight!) and LGBT acceptance in general, career foe-of-the-'mos Peter Labarbera and reliably outrageous talk show host Janet Mefferd shared this exchange about the 2012 presidential race:

Janet Mefferd: What it comes down to Peter is when you don’t have an objective moral standard in a society you can’t long stand. I’m watching this stuff unfold and I’m not a Jeremiah type generally, I tend to be pretty cheerful, but I look at this and think, I don’t think a country can recover from this, I really don’t.

Peter LaBarbera: I tend to be a realist too which is why I don’t go around saying, we’re all going to come out of this OK, who knows? If there’s a revival I think there’s hope for us. I think without a revival I kind of agree with you, I think we’re seeing all the signs of a society in steep moral decline. Even this presidential race we’re faced between one candidate who has totally given over to the homosexual agenda, then the Republican candidate, Mitt Romney, has actually come out for homosexuality in the Boy Scouts. It almost seems like our candidates themselves are sort of a judgment on this country.

Mefferd: Right and I wonder if we’re not under judgment as well because those are the two candidates.

LaBarbera: Yeah, I agree.

Well, I gotta ask: Did God vote in the primary? Because ya know, if you don't vote, you can't complain (or wrathfully judge, as it were).

But in a weird way, I applaud Mefferd and LaBarbera for the across-the-aisle drubbing of both Obama and Romney. When it comes to either economic solutions or the spurring of Armageddon, it's nice to hear that bipartisanship is still possible.
