Jesus Sucks at Politics!
Anna Pierre ran for mayor of North Florida. She felt she had a special advantage entering the race.
The candidate, who also goes by the name Princess Anna Pierre, told Local 10 reporter Janine Stanwood that she learned of Mr. Christ’s “spiritual endorsement” by praying before she registered her candidacy. Pierre also claimed to have received three signs confirming that Jesus is, in fact, on her side. When Stanwood asked what those three signs were, Pierre replied, “Well, I’m going to keep them private.”
Unfortunately for Anna, even though she had the endorsement of the big JC she lost in a landslide. Out of 6,783 votes cast, she won just 56 — 0.83% — and came in dead last. What the hell? If the endorsement of the King of Kings can’t win you a simple mayoral bid then what good is it?!?
What’s even worse for Pierre is that former North Miami mayor Kevin Burns received the most votes and is openly gay. One can only assume then that Jesus tricked Ms. Pierre into flaunting his endorsement, so that he could instead ensure Burns won the election thereby demonstrating his heavenly endorsement of homosexuality… or something like that.
Reminds me of this fiasco:
And it would be unfair to leave out Pat Robertson in a post concerning religion and politics as he has worked very hard to be at the front of that particular crazy train:
In January, televangelist Pat Robertson told 700 Club viewers that in his annual New Year’s “conversation” with God, the Almighty had revealed to him who the next president would be. Up through Election Day, Robertson harshly criticized President Obama and the Democratic Party while praising Mitt Romney. Then, Robertson’s Christian Broadcasting Network predicted a GOP sweep, leaving Robertson utterly confounded by Obama’s victory.
