Jesus H Christ on a puppy-powered paddle-wheeler! Hutton's posted again. He must be trying to break a personal record.
Anyways, the gist of it is that Maria Miller, who played a large role in getting the recent Marriage (Same Sex Couples) Act through Parliament, has resigned, after being caught, like many MPs of late, fiddling her expenses. Bob The Blithering Blusterer, you won't be at all surprised to hear, sees his god's hand in this. Ms Miller, he thinks, is not being punished for fraudulent use of her expense allowance (you know: the obvious scenario), but for allowing people who love each other to get married. Because that's led to marriage being destroyed, apparently.
(And on that note, could any person whose heterosexual marriage has been adversely affected by the legalisation of same-sex marriage, please leave a comment explaining how it was adversely affected? Have you, perhaps, suddenly become overwhelmed by a desire to run off and marry a person of the same sex as yourself, just 'cause it's now legal?)
Anyways, this rather hastily written bit of doggerel is for Bob.
And so Bob saw his God was mocked,
'cause he didn't like the land's new law.
And Bob, poor soul, was oh-so shocked.
That gays could marry, made him sore!
Then Miller fiddled her expenses bill.
"Aha!" Said Bob. "She helped the gays,
And now her hand's seen in the till.
God's punishing her evil ways!"
But, Bob, he doesn't understand
That it's just coincidence.
It's not his god, with vengeful hand,
But people seeking recompense.
He thinks a Daddy in the sky,
Is totting up a balance-sheet.
His wish for justice from on high
Is nought but childish fantasy.
Miller's lost her job and station,
Not for passing any law
(Correlation's not causation),
But stealing from the money-drawer.
If Bob keeps posting at this new, faster, rate, I think I'm gonna have to start a second blog to house these posts. I don't want them becoming the major substance of this one. Would anyone be interested in that?
