*I often have this image in my head of God sitting up in heaven with his head in his hands saying…no, asking, ‘Why?’
‘Why do they keep blaming Me for their actions?’ ‘Why do they use My name so freely, when they don’t have the courage to be accountable to their own prejudices?’
This is the vision that surfaces in my unabashedly overactive mind, whenever I hear of claims such as the one you see in the headline above.
Nevertheless, there it is. A politician is now saying God TOLD HIM to ban baggy pants.
Who can we confirm this with? Who are we to believe?
“Seeing the young boys with pants hanging down, having to walk wide-legged, holding their pants up to keep them from falling down—now it’s gotten real bad,” Goodman said. “It’s something I couldn’t take no more.”
“I prayed and asked God to show me what I should do, and the way I should go about it,” Goodman said. “What would God do? Did God go around doing this?”
Finally, the heavens parted and in came the answer written on a beam of sunlight.
Goodman says the answer came to him.
“He would show me this saggy pant—it’s one of the things He did not do. It is not in His orders to do that to gain eternal life.”
In other words, Goodman felt that God didn’t sag his pants, so the practice should be illegal.
So there you have it.
“I prayed about this. I know that God would not go around with pants down,” Goodman said.
