What happens when the would-be dragon slayer peers into the mirror and sees a flame-throwing reptile?

That’s the real question as tar balls wash ashore in the Gulf and the ooze seeps into the reeds of Louisiana’s marshes.

A Scandalous Scandal Scandalizes The Scandalizers

The outcry over God’s failure to adjust himself to human expectations reached a high-pitched scream yesterday with yet another startling revelation: God – the Great “I AM,” The Almighty Monarch, the Creator of all Existence, the One Who Pulled the Pin at the Big Bang – is registered with neither major American political party.

How Could You Possibly Vote For That Man?

Think of me as an accidental iconoclast. I’m a pro-life, Bible-thumping, holy-rolling evangelical Christian and … a registered Democrat.. Even worse, I’m no blue dog. I’m a real-life Roosevelt “liberal” who voted for Obama and wept for joy as the returns came in. I baffle non-church goers when I rebut the politics of Falwell, Dobson, and Robertson. I break their mold. Evangelicals question my orthodoxy and integrity, claiming – at the very least – that I wilted under pressure and swooned before Pied Piper charisma during the 2008 election. I break their mold as well. Witness the dismay from the internet plea of a sincere 21-year-old: “the platform McCain stood on was miles closer to lining up to God’s Word, and in so many cases was spot on.” She adds: “It grieves me that many Christians could not separate the issues from the man.”

She’s not alone. Colleagues at breakfast meetings freeze. It’s as if I’ve breathed ice on their scrambled eggs – although a few pull me aside later, their eyes darting as if they fear spies, and mutter: “Thanks for speaking up. I’m a Democrat too.”

Keep it hush-hush. Otherwise, the Monty Python gang might smash through the door and holler: “No one expects the Spanish Inquisition!”
