Christine O'Donnell- Maybe She's Right About......Well, You Know....


Much has already been written about Tea Party candidate Christine O'Donnell's Republican Senate primary win in Delaware over establishment candidate Representative Mike Castle, a moderate on most issues. And the analysis seems to be clear- there is no middle ground left in the Republican Party for any "middle of the road" approaches to governance or reaching out across the aisle for voices of moderation.

I knew very little about Christine O'Donnell until yesterday, other than she is a protege of the famous half term former Governor of Alaska, the one and only Sarah Palin. And until it was brought up on the Rachel Maddow Show last night, I didn't know just how strong Ms. O'Donnell's religious convictions were- she is a Christian fundamentalist, and it's her right to worship as she pleases....this is America, where we are all equal before God, unless we are gay, lesbian, or face Mecca when we pray.

Christine O'Donnell believes in total abstinence before marriage....no sex please. OK, if that's her belief, so be it. But she takes it one step further; there should be no sex....well, you know.....with yourself. To be upfront, I already used the obligatory Seinfeld reference on Sue's blog. You know; the "Master of My Domain" stuff. I can't let that opportunity for a wisecrack get by.

But then I was reminded of another voice from the past when "the issue" was talked about - in a manner of speaking. Enter the famed gossip columnist and rock critic for L'Osservatore Romano- and later The Vatican Enquirer, the legendary Father Guido Sarducci.

Father Guido has some pretty upfront views about the meaning of life, the nature of sin, what is waiting for us in "the afterlife", and what God will do when we finally meet Him. And it all comes down to this....life is a job.

See video...........

Sue....the funniest part of Father Guido's monologue was left out.

He dreamed that he died and was standing before God to be judged.

And he was 35 cents short!!!! LOL!
