Rick Perry Cries Persecution Over Christianity. Yeah, Right!

GOP fading star Rick Perry is now making the all too frequently heard whining noises that he is being persecuted for his Christian beliefs.  I mean, obviously there could be no other explanation for his poor performance in the polls, except perhaps his inability to complete a logically coherent sentence.

Oh poor little martyr.  Here's a cross and some nails.  I'm sure there would be no shortage of volunteers to help attach you.  This is about as believable as a Muslim in the Middle East claiming to be persecuted for his or her Islamic beliefs.  The fact is that Perry was busy slamming Romney over his Mormon beliefs, and apparently his criticisms of Mormonism were perceived, even by Republicans, as an unfair attack on that man's religion.  So for Perry to now try to turn the tables and say that he is being persecuted for his bigoted attacks on Mormonism really seems surreal.  

Not that I would waste even a syllable defending the many ridiculous, transparently fraudulent, and utterly laughable "beliefs" of Mormonism.  Few people who were not indoctrinated since birth in that religion can find the Book of Mormon even remotely plausible, or even readable.  Perhaps that's why Mark Twain referred to the Book of Mormon as "Chloroform in print" (and, no I don't think he meant that in a good way, FYI).  

Sorry, poor little Richie Rich, apparently GOP voters like Satanic Herman Cain and his Mark of the Beast 999 Tax plan more than they like you.  If you want to blame someone for being tired of your fundamentalist claptrap, perhaps you should start with GOP voters, since there are apparently willing to vote for a guy with 999 stamped on his forehead before they are willing to pull the lever for you.  However, the good news is that this should usher in the end of the world any day now and then you all can be with Jebus on a cloud somewhere.
