Meet Rep. John Shimkus (R-Ill). The other day, during the hearing of the U.S. House Subcommittee on Energy and Environment, Rep. Shimkus let us all know a) we are a "carbon-starved" planet (that's right...we need MORE carbon) and b) according to Genesis 8:21-22, God ain't gonna let anything happen to the earth. Additionally, according to Matthew 24, we'll know when God decides to end the earth, because we'll hear trumpet calls and God's elect (who I am sure includes the right Representative) will be gathered. According to Rep. Shimkus, the earth will only end when God decides it is so.
I wonder if the next time someone in Rep. Shimkus' family is deathly ill, is he gonna take them to a doctor, or is he just gonna pray. I kind of think he has to just pray. I mean, if he's willing to bet the whole of humanity's existence on his religious beliefs, shouldn't he put the health of his own loved ones where his mouth is? I mean...let's seperate the believers from the BELIEVERS, you know.
