WJTV- Jackson Mayor Tony Yarber is addressing the city’s infrastructure problem on Twitter.
He tweeted “Yes….I believe we can pray potholes away. Moses prayed and a sea opened up. #iseeya #itrustHim #prayerworks”.
This is not the first time the Jackson mayor has talked about the city’s issues on the social media site.
Just last week, Yaber tweeted about the possible Costo deal that’s being talked about in Ridgeland. He said in statement sent to WJTV that he was disappointed that some key leaders could not come together to make Costco a reality for the City of Jackson.
The tweets read, “I am disgusted to know that there are public officials both present and past who were deliberate obstructionists in my Costco efforts.”
Another tweet said “Very poor display of your love for Jackson while obstructing it’s progress.”
Okay, so let's look past the fact that this tweet was probably in jest. Deal? Trust me it's way funnier if you just take it at face value. Anyway, I think by now I have made my thoughts on organized religion very clear. For that reason, people might expect me to disagree with Tony Yarber's insane plan of action to fix the roads in Jackson, Mississippi. Well, those people would be sorely mistaken, because if there if one thing that I love about Christianity it's that you can pretty much use it to justify anything. Oh, the citizens of Jackson wanted a Mayor in office that actually wanted to work? Looks like you shouldn't have voted in a man of the faith. Christianity is the lazy man's religion. Why would Tony Yarber pay money out of the city's pocket to have a bunch of dudes fix some potholes? Jesus turned water into wine, but that asshole is too busy to make sure I don't get a flat tire on the way to church on Sunday morning? Parting seas and shit when he could be over here parting traffic on the 405?
Can't even make sure I blindly drive right past his house of prayer without being inconvenienced? I think I might get down on both knees bedside tonight just to ask him why he's so selfish. Why are we getting mad at a mayor when it's the Lord's will that those potholes exist? Everything happens for a reason. Probably didn't say enough 'Hail Mary's' after your last confessional. That'll teach you. I heard that Judaism has a few openings if you don't like the lesson.
Fuck it, I might just rejoin the church right now. If God wanted me to go to work he would have woken me up on time. If he didn't want me to have premarital sex he wouldn't have put dumb women that are willing to fuck me on this planet. If he wanted me to never question my belief in him he wouldn't have given me a rational, free thinking brain. How can I be the sinner if God just keeps feeding me sins to commit? Free will, free schmill. Even if these are ultimately my decisions, I can just pray that shit away when I'm done. What do you think the big guy in the sky does when he accidentally introduces another terminal disease into the world? Shit, another school shooter? Looks like you got a long night of 'Our Fathers' ahead of you Messiah. Jesus Christ baby! My Lord and Savior, and more importantly, my favorite scapegoat!
