Bloomberg's Theology

Nanny stater on heaven.

Apr. 16, 2014

Former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg is preparing to spend $50 million in a campaign against the NRA on gun control. “We’ve got to make them afraid of us,” he declared. We suppose it’s too obvious to point out that the NRA has all the guns, so they’re probably not afraid of a nanny stater like Bloomberg. He also spoke about his policy preferences in relation to his mortality. At 72, perhaps he’s thinking more of the end of his life now, but he’s not worried because his work to take away gun rights, as well as to fight the menaces of sugar and smoking, is his ticket beyond the pearly gates. He says, “I am telling you if there is a God, when I get to heaven I’m not stopping to be interviewed. I am heading straight in. I have earned my place in heaven. It’s not even close.” What unbelievable and utterly obnoxious arrogance. But then again we knew that about him. Only such incredible hubris can explain why he thinks he knows better than everyone else – including God – about so many things.
