“[A]uthoritarian followers [in the United States] are both men and women, who tend to be highly conventional, always and easily submissive to authority, while willing to work aggressively on behalf of such an authority. They tend to be very religious, with moderate to little education, trusting of untrustworthy authorities, prejudiced (e.g., with respect to gay marriage); they are typically mean-spirited, narrow-minded, intolerant, bullying, zealous, dogmatic, uncritical of their chosen authority, hypocritical, inconsistent, prone to panic easily, highly self-righteous, moralistic, strict disciplinarian, severely punitive; they also demand loyalty and return it, have little self-awareness, and are typically politically and economically conservative Republicans.”

Marriage

Hey folks! The omnipotent, omniscient, omnipresent creator of the universe needs your help. It turns out the big guy isn’t too good at the foresight thing, and his plan for humanity is in trouble. That’s where you come in. The all-powerful being just can’t seem to git’r done, and needs you to enforce his moral dictates.

While he seems to be losing it in some ways, at least he still has his priorities straight: He’s all riled up about the abominations of gay marriage and abortion, but not about trivialities such as torture, racism, and starvation. You, of course, should follow his lead here–and, praise Jesus, you do.

So, you humble “chosen,” “elect,” “saved,” you “God’s people,”  get off your butts and give him the help he needs! He can’t do it by himself, and your salvation might, just might, depend on it.

(A few parting words from St. Fred of Deutschland for the  folks who think god needs their help: “Salvation of the soul–in plain words, the world revolves around me.”)
