Rush is in the Bible!

The other night, in my devotional reading of the psalter, I came across Rush Limbaugh in the Bible! But please don't tell him--it will only swell his oversized head.

Psalm 52 (KJV)

Why boastest thou thyself in mischief, O mighty man?
the goodness of God endureth continually.
2Thy tongue deviseth mischiefs; like a sharp razor,
working deceitfully.
3Thou lovest evil more than good; and lying rather than to speak righteousness.
4Thou lovest all devouring words, O thou deceitful tongue.
5God shall likewise destroy thee for ever, he shall take thee away,
and pluck thee out of thy dwelling place, and root thee out of the land of the living.
6The righteous also shall see, and fear, and shall laugh at him:
7Lo, this is the man that made not God his strength;
but trusted in the abundance of his riches, and strengthened himself in his wickedness.
8But I am like a green olive tree in the house of God:
I trust in the mercy of God for ever and ever.
9I will praise thee for ever, because thou hast done it:
and I will wait on thy name; for it is good before thy saints.

Sarcasm from the pulpit? You? Surely not.*

*the above comment dripping with sarcasm that was splashed on it from the blog post from my favorite minister.

You're welcome, Jan!

As for you, my sarcasm-dripping friend....anytime!
