Doug Wilson almost channels Eric Cartman

Two pieces caught my eye. The first is Doug Wilson’s (thanks to the always Moscovite Baylys):

Hart quotes a few parts, I'll quote more selectively.

Postmillennial optimism does not mean the world gets better without repentance. It means that the gospel is powerful to save, and when the gospel is preached rightly it comes in the form of "repent and believe." Repent of what? Repent of our sins. Believe what? Believe in Jesus Christ, crucified and risen.

Wilson moves along ...

3. No principled vote cast yesterday, offered in faith before the Lord, was a wasted vote. Those who went to the polls with true faith in Christ and a sincere commitment to do what His Word required of them offered up a vote that was part of their living sacrifice (Rom. 12:1-2). And if He received it, so should we -- even if the vote cast differed from our own.

Wilson can't help but mention what votes are unprincipled and so ...

4. Every unprincipled vote, offerred to the bitch goddess of the state on the left, or the bitch goddess of pragmatism on the soft right, or the bitch goddess of ideology on the libertarian right, was simply thrown away. Professing Christians who voted for Obama were either confusedly or rebelliously heaping up judgment for all of us. Christians on the right who voted for Romney for no other reason than that he was "electable" found out that he was not as electable as all that. And Christians who voted for absolute ideological purity (which is, remember, a form of impurity) found out that that kind of purity wasn't in the running.

If Wilson used "bitch goddess" just a few more times I'd start to think he was singing about Kyle's mom. 

Don't worry Mr. Wilson, you're pretty obviously irrepressible already. :)
