What God does Gov. Walker answer to?

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker said that God is guiding him. I’m wondering whose God he is listening to. Here’s what Walker told conservative talk show host Hugh Hewitt in answering a question about when he’d reveal his decision to run for President (as quoted in Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Jan. 8, 2015):

“I think with what I’ve had to go through in the last four years, both politically, but also in terms of the policies, certainly I feel that there’s a reason God put me in a spot to do things that we’ve done and take on the kind of challenges we’ve done.”

What chutzpah! Is there really a God out there who guides him to refuse to expand Medicaid and to participate in the Affordable Care Act, thus denying thousands of low income Wisconsinites access to health care? Does his God tell him to cut on education aids, to weaken unions and thus deprive workers of a means to a better life, to turn down the light rail plan taking away more jobs and to do other mean-spirited actions?

To claim that any God would support actions that line the pockets of the wealthy at the expense of ordinary citizens is beyond comprehension. Besides, what’s our governor doing spending all this time with nutty talk show guys anyway?

  1. Couldn’t agree more about his so called “God”. I sure am fortunate that I am privileged to live a life in which I know a very different God otherwise I just may have to despise the person I would have become. I must say though that reading the paper this morning with his statement of God telling him it’s time to put his hat in the ring for President immediately put me in hysterics. Sure didn’t have to read the comics this morning because I’m certain there could not have been anything funnier than that anywhere on those pages. After I finished laughing at his outright ignorance, my next thought was my gosh, maybe his intent would be to turn our United States into a Cult of God fearing people.
