Holier than thou art Kansas

Here is the original text of the “Sermon on the Kansas Capitol Steps”: “Blessed are those with prosperity, for their parents or in-laws were prosperous.

“Blessed are they who lost their state jobs, for their suffering will balance the budget. Blessed are the powerful, for they can tell others to eat cake.

“Blessed are they who dine at Cedar Crest, for they shall be exempt from the Kansas Open Meetings Act. Blessed are those who oppose contraception and same gender marriage, for our Christian tradition tells us that sex is evil if it does not result in the conception of a baby. (But the sin can be forgiven if it is between a married man and woman.)

“Blessed are the abortion foes, for they will foster or adopt all the babies that are born into unhealthy and unsafe homes. Blessed are native Kansans, for they weren’t born anyplace else.”

Rejoice and be exceedingly glad all you Kansans that you live in a state led by holy politicians.

Donald H. Daniels
