Armey, Texas Republican and former House Majority Leader is now a big-time and very wealthy lobbyist at the hire of large corporate interests such as Exxon Mobile and he heads up the conservative activist Freedom Works front group (fronting those same corporate interests and the RNC). He’s a rather nasty piece of business. As the linked Think Progress piece notes, in recent testimony on Capitol Hill, Armey said the following:
Let me say I take it as an article of faith if the lord God almighty made the heavens and the Earth, and he made them to his satisfaction and it is quite pretentious of we little weaklings here on earth to think that, that we are going to destroy God’s creation.
He might believe this idiotic formulation but there’s no reason at all to suspect he does. Lying is not at all unusual for the fellow. We’ll note that he doesn’t explain here how this omnipotent and good-intentioned God missed halting a few other unpleasant events like the murder of six million jews.
