Oh. My. God.

(From the Herald)

Associate Education Minister John Banks says he believes the Genesis account of the start of life on Earth.
According to the Bible, God made the world in six days, with Adam and Eve being his last act of creation.
John Banks told Radio Rhema that he has no doubts the first chapters of Genesis are true.

Hhmm, he once believed in Kim Dotcom and Sky City then denied they existed, his belief in God as the creator may be just as transient. Two things have remained constant, however, his belief in John Key as his political saviour and money.

The bible doesn't tech that the earth is 6000 years old.
John Banks is a very confused fellow.

I was watching television one afternoon and saw John Banks handling vipers to show his faith.
At an Act Party conference.

I thought all the fun and games with ACT MPs saying stuff to discredit and undermine their party was over, after the last election. But no, even with one MP they are capable of making a mess.
It astounds me that ACT has enough members to remain registered as a political party.

There's always some cowboy operator out there, Charlie, who just does what he wants, bugger the red-tape.

Funny how he can believe in so childish a way about God but doesn't seem to have paid much attention to the instruction book God sent to his believers.

Knowing that he was dealing with the foibles of humanity God even summarised the good book in bullet point form for the john banks's of this world - ten succinct "thou shalt not's" - I recall dishonesty being on the list along with covetousness and vanity and a few other of JB's key "virtues".

Maybe he should have done a comic book version for the likes of JB.

And we have this idiot and the one from Karori holding the balance of power on the bridge of this ship of fools and wonder why the country is broke and going nowhere.

He believes he's a Cadet of the Lord, darkhorse.
Criticise him at your spiritual peril!

DarkHorse said...

I wonder when he is expecting to have a cup of tea with him?

Banksie can already smell the Liptons, darkhorse, hence the faraway look in his wee squinty eyes.

Akin, with his Bio 101 fail, should be included in the Mad Hatter's tea party, surely?
