The best township for the Christians to live in the US
January 20, 2002
According to the Harper’s magazine (February 2002), the mayor of Inglis, Florida, Carolyn Risher has written the following proclamation and posted in her office in November last year.
Copies of the decree were also placed in hollowed-out fence posts at the town’s four entrances: the posts were then sealed and painted with the words Repent, Request, and Resist.
It is amazing to see how arrogant, arbitrary, despotic, and tyrannical a little local mandarin bleats about the mandate by its citizens and the appointment by God to decree: Hey, Satan, Go Away!
It is also fascinating with her hilarious challenge to issue an edict against the Satan, one of the Creator’s devastating mistakes in his induction of men and women in this planet, that she has the power and capability by a simple proclamation to keep the Satan out of town’s boundary and save her brothers and sisters from the daily satanic temptations.
The proclamation, “ Citizens! Do not panic! Here comes our mayor on a white horse charging against a Satan and taking everything back that was stolen from the town”, appears to be a chivalrous Quixotic exorcism that only dittohead and born-again Christians are eager to absorb and pray aloud together, Hallelujah Amen.
For mayor of Inglis, Satan has been running the US, with no freedom for its citizens, and without liberty to worship God, and therefore it is her duty to proclaim an edict that stakes the Satan out from town’s border. (Mullah John Ashcroft might drag her to the court for high treason.)
In the born-again world of an evangelical Christian fundamentalism, the low-grade exorcism performed by an elected official like the mayor of Inglis would be a godsend gift in tearing down the wall of separation between state and church and providing a cozy nest for the airhead Christian zealots.
What about the Muslims, Buddhists, Hindus, Sikhs, and freethinkers? For the Christian Wahhabists, they are all infidels that deserve to be kept out of town’s border, because they refuse to hear and follow the words of a Jewish rabbi from a cow town, Jerusalem, two thousands years ago.
Here is a decree by the Mayor of Inglis, Florida, Ms Carolyn Risher.
Be it known from this day forward that Satan, ruler of darkness, giver of evil, destroyer of what is good and just, is not now, nor ever again will be, a part of this town of Inglis.
Satan is hereby declared powerless, no longer ruling over, nor influencing, our citizens.
In the past, Satan has caused division, animosity, hate, confusion, ungodly acts on our youth, and discord among our friends and loved ones. NO LONGER!
The body of Jesus Christ, those citizens cleansed by the Blood of the Lamb, hereby join together to bind the forces of evil in the Holy Name of Jesus.
We have taken our town back for the Kingdom of God. We are taking everything back that the devil ever stole from us.
As blood-bought children of God, we exercise our authority over the devil in Jesus’ name.
By that authority, and through His Blessed Name, we command all satanic and demonic forces to cease their activities and depart the town of Inglis.
As the mayor of Inglis, duly elected by the citizens of this town, and appointed by God to this position of leadership, I proclaim victory over Satan, freedom for our citizens, and liberty to worship our Creator and Heavenly Father, the God of Israel.
I take this action in accordance with the words of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, as recorded in Mathew 28:18-20 and Mark 16:15-18
Signed and sealed this fifth day of November 2001.
