Moment of Blindingly Obvious Realization

It just occurred to me, while standing in the shower with the shampoo and all, that good ol' Chan Chandler, the North Carolina Baptist minister who first threatened, then shooed out members of his congregation if they did not vote for or support George Bush, has defied one of the Ten Commandments: "You shall have no other gods before me." Now while I'm not certain if he led his charges in the Pledge of Allegiance before every service (which would fall into the Graven Images category bigtime) I believe I am safe in the assertion that, yeah, telling someone they can't come in and worship their god because they're not following some Mortal-in-Chief is, indeed, putting said M-i-C before the Lord. Lord don't like that, especially the Hebrew Bible Lord who gave the commandments to Moses in the first place.

As I realized this a great big glob of shampoo suds fell into my eyes and it stung a lot and I broke a Commandment in the ensuing scuffle. Sure, we're all sinners, but most of us sinners prefer to stick to the tried-and-true: Lord's-name-in-vain-taking, Sabbath-day-not-holy-keeping, neighbor's-stuff-coveting, false-witness-bearing, adultery-committing, poor-English-constructing, but it takes a real revolutionary like Chan Chandler to go back to a real oldschool dilly and gleefully break it in a fit of jingoistic pique. So bravo, Pastor Chandler! We hypocrites salute you and hold you as a shining example of how to really do things up right.
