Rush Limbaugh isn't the only hateful, wingnut liar in his family. His brother, author David Limbaugh, makes his money by ginning up hysteria about that damned Barack Obama. The younger brother of the Big Fat Idiot is promoting a book which seeks to legitimize Christianity called, Jesus on Trial: A Lawyer Affirms the Truth of the Gospel. The good Christians on the couch, especially Hasselbeck in her pure white dress, were gobbling up his hypothesis that Jesus could stand trial and "win" based on the "evidence" in the incredibly human drama known as the Bible.
Limbaugh obviously has an agenda, just like his brother. He seeks to label the Black President and his godless liberal followers as the reason for all our problems. He claims the Ryan tax cuts for the rich plan is really god's idea, and the (Atheist Muslim) President is demonizing rich people. The prolific Religious-Right Republican has penned other riveting novels like: The Great Destroyer: Barack Obama's War on the Republic, The Intellectual and Moral Bankruptcy of Today's Democratic Party, and How Liberals are Waging War Against Christians. The omnipotent, omnibenevolent god is real because,
you can't even talk about evil if you don't have an absolute moral reference of what evil is.
Atheists can't possibly understand what's right or wrong because they have no concept of an absolute good.
He claims the bible is the only book to accurately portray the human condition. He comes to this assumption by following this train of "logic": the bible is true because god inspired man to write it, some of the things written in the book (written over several centuries time) have actually happened and god has reasons for doing terrible, awful things. This circular reasoning, Limbaugh asserts, would stand up in a court of law, because he's "studied this stuff for over twenty years."
The idea of the Gospel being the "absolute truth" stems from a selfish, almost child-like sense of entitlement we see in so many Republicans. As Dawkins said,
“There is something infantile in the presumption that somebody else has a responsibility to give your life meaning and point… The truly adult view, by contrast, is that our life is as meaningful, as full and as wonderful as we choose to make it.”
As far as the veracity of the bible is concerned, we must consider this other point made by the author of The God Delusion:
“To be fair, much of the Bible is not systematically evil but just plain weird, as you would expect of a chaotically cobbled-together anthology of disjointed documents, composed, revised, translated, distorted and 'improved' by hundreds of anonymous authors, editors and copyists, unknown to us and mostly unknown to each other, spanning nine centuries”
If you assume the Bible was written by god, you can explain away anything because GOD SAID! People who question the validity of the holy book are suspicious people who should never question a god whom Republicans created in their own image: powerful, capricious and very often, evil.
