Now I have heard a number of crazy things said by Republicans and if I had to choose the craziest, I’d be stumped. There are too many crazy contenders in the GOP to choose from, like Sarah Palin, Louie Gohmert and Michele Bachmann to name a few.
But it appears that everyday, another contender makes himself known and today was no exception. Thanks to reporting by Politico, our contender for the Republican crazy prize is Det Bowers – a South Carolina pastor and one of six Republican challengers trying to outcrazy Lindsay Graham.
According to the reports, Bowers made some comments in a sermon he preached to his South Carolina congregation. In his sermon, Bowers blamed women for “95 percent of divorces” because he says, they loved their kids more than their husbands.
“I find that in about 95 percent of broken marriages, though the husband’s the one that ran out on his wife, the wife loves her children more than she does her husband,” That is an abominable idolatry.”
“Do you hear me, ladies? It is an abominable idolatry to love your children more than you love your husband, and it will ruin your marriage. And yet you blame it on him because he ran off with some other woman! He did run off with some other woman, and you packed his bags. All of his emotional bags, you packed for him. Is that true in every case? No, but it’s true in the vast preponderance of them.”
“You just ran him off! You paid more attention to your children than you did to him. ‘Oh, he doesn’t need me?’ He needs you more than they do. He chose you, they didn’t. An abominable idolatry.”
Bowers is running for the United States Congress. He wants to be the next Republican congressman sitting in the seat presently occupied by Lindsay Graham. Now that this crazy story is public, his chances of winning the Republican vote just increased a thousand fold. He has the two basic attributes they’re looking for in their candidates – he’s white and he says crazy sh*t!
Republicans, speeding up this nation’s race to the bottom.
