Good news, All Ye Faithful! The Obama Camp has designed religious paraphernalia on which you can spend your hard-earned dollars! Now you can show your adoration for your faith and for Obama all at the same time! Oh, wait - was that redundant?? At God-O-Meter, the new items available were revealed. Oh, yes.

Up first, we have this lovely button:

For the family that prays for Obama, stays together, or something like that. Well, if what the NY Post had about Obama potentially violating the Logan Act* by attempting to delay troop withdrawal from Iraq to suit HIS political purposes is true, risking lives as a result, he's gonna need a lot of those prayers. See, it's illegal - some might even say TREASONOUS - for a civilian to work against a presidential administration in a foreign country. Oopsy daisy!!

Then there is this nice little bumper sticker for all you Catholics out there! You can put this right next to the sticker for your parochial school!

Oh, great! Now I know what to get my good friend, Divine Democrat! Ahem.

And finally, last but not least, there is this:

All hail, the Obama Faithful!! Oh, wait - am I misreading that? Nope, I don't think I am. That may not be exactly what they WANTED to convey, at least consciously, but that's about what they seem to expect from their followers - complete and utter devotion. Praise Obama - he has come to liberate us from our pesky morals, our integrity, our sense of decency and fair play! That must be the "Change" Obama promised to bring us!! Hallelujah!!

And just in case you think I am making this up, here is the letter from the Obama Camp:
Dear friends,
Great news! We now have faith merchandise available for you to show your support for Barack Obama as a person of faith.

Check out the Believers for Barack, Pro-Family Pro-Obama, and Catholics for Obama buttons, bumper stickers and signs....

Believers for Barack rally signs and bumper stickers, along with all Pro-Family Pro-Obama merchandise, are appropriate for people of all faith backgrounds. We'll soon be rolling out merchandise for other religious groups and denominations, but I wanted to get this out to you without delay.

Take good care,

Paul Monteiro
Deputy Director of Religous (sic) Affairs
Obama for America

Oh, YAY! And God-O-Meter said there will be more to come, like "Clergy for Change." Oh, I cannot WAIT to get one of those! Actually, yes, yes I can. Many of you will like THIS one: "Pro-Israel Pro-Obama." I wonder how HAMAS and The Nation of Islam will feel about that one...I guess Obama can ask his pastor, Jeremiah Wright, about that.

Now some of you heathens out there might be just a bit sceptical about Obama's reaching out to the religious among us. Some of you might just be bitterly clinging to his comments about religious folk bitterly clinging to their guns and religion. Oh, ye of little faith!! He cares about you, he really does. Didn't you see the BUTTON?? Or the STICKER?? C'mon! Don't play hard to get! Obama loves you, this I know! For his minions have bludgeoned me with that claim for weeks now! I mean - because he shows us in so many ways: FISA, public campaign funds, off-shore drilling, NAFTA, gun control...Oh, I could go on and on with all the ways Obama's Words have touched our lives. Praise the One who can stop the waters rising, and slow their very movement! Now the Faithful may proudly display the object of their veneration right on their cars and their lapels! Will wonders never cease?!

But wait! There is one more left to see. This courtesy of my talented partner who wanted to make sure we were all represented. Here it is:

Step right up! Order yours today!!

* Text of the Logan Act: Any citizen of the United States, wherever he may be, who, without authority of the United States, directly or indirectly commences or carries on any correspondence or intercourse with any foreign government or any officer or agent thereof, with intent to influence the measures or conduct of any foreign government or of any officer or agent thereof, in relation to any disputes or controversies with the United States, or to defeat the measures of the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both.

If I put a bumper sticker on my car that said, "Catholic for Obama", I'd have to put a bag over my head as I walk from the parking lot. In my church...they.do.not.love.Obama!

I want to get a bumper sticker that says, "Garlic nosed Italian's against Obama" or "Catholics don't think having children is a punishment, they're a blessing."

LOL - those are definitely good ones!

Can you BELIEVE this guy, ME? I swear - as soon as I saw the Catholics one I just started laughing - I wish I could have seen your face when you read it!

Oh, my - what a piece of work. They belittle Sarah Palin for being religious, then they come out with this new idea?? Laughable...

O. M. G.

Seriously speechless.

bluelyon said...

Sooo...I guess none of'em want us atheists, huh?

Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy said...

I know, right? Just remarkable. I still cannot believe the Obama people are even TRYING to go after Palin's church considering TUCC and Jeremiah Wright, but what do I know?!?!

We did come up with some other ideas for buttons. Mary Ellen's comment abt Catholics was affirmed over at No Quarter. I suggested "Protestants for Palin" and "Pagans For Palin" - the pagans in the crowd liked it!

And no, BlueLyon, I guess atheists need not apply to be an Obama faithful. No doubt, atheists get lumped in with the old, white, women, blue collar workers. At least you're in good company!! Ahem...
