Now Kiddies, It's Time For Religious Instruction

One of the unfortunate dils who thinks the sun shines out of the PM's cloaca writes under the pseudonym of Rocket Boy and had this to say in respect of the Electoral Finance Act recently in a comment over at Farrar's place:-

".....this blog would be pretty boring if there weren’t a few people who didn’t think DPF walked on water......"

Rocket Boy unfortunately picked the wrong biblical analogy in desribing DPF. Let's have a look at the more appropriate story which can be found in the Old Testament, to whit, the Book of Exodus.

Passage Exodus 14:21-26:

21 Then Moses stretched out his hand over the sea, and all that night the LORD drove the sea back with a strong east wind and turned it into dry land. The waters were divided, 22 and the Israelites went through the sea on dry ground, with a wall of water on their right and on their left.

23 The Egyptians pursued them, and all Pharaoh's horses and chariots and horsemen followed them into the sea. 24 During the last watch of the night the LORD looked down from the pillar of fire and cloud at the Egyptian army and threw it into confusion. 25 He made the wheels of their chariots come off [a] so that they had difficulty driving. And the Egyptians said, "Let's get away from the Israelites! The LORD is fighting for them against Egypt."

26 Then the LORD said to Moses, "Stretch out your hand over the sea so that the waters may flow back over the Egyptians and their chariots and horsemen."

This passage might be rewritten slightly, as follows:-

NZ Herald Front Page Expose:

21 Then David Farrar stretched out his hand over the Electoral Finance Bill, and for week after week The Herald drove the tide of opinion back with a strong east wind and turned it into widespread public anger. The bills supporters were divided, 22 and the protest marchers went through the sea on moral high ground, with a wall of Labour inspired abuse on their right and on their left.

23 Labour pursued them, and all Clark's horses and chariots and horsemen followed them into the sea. 24 During the last opinion polls of the night the voters looked down at the Labour army and threw it into confusion. 25 The wheels of their chariots come off [a] so that they had difficulty driving. Dunny took a dive and Tim delivered a king hit. And the Labour hordes said, "Let's get away from the Gnats, Act and Maori voters! God is fighting for them against Labour."

26 Then the LORD said to David Farrar, "DPF, stretch out your hand over the sea so that the waters may flow back over the Labourites and their chariot and trolls."

And so it came to pass. He did. And it was good.

Good one Adolf!

I enjoyed reading that.

The best bit of all was the reference in the original text to their wheels falling off.

That'll teach the Godless bastards.
