Betty Bowers Explains Traditional Marriage to Everyone Else

Mrs. Betty Bowers is the invention of the comedic mind of Paul A. Bradley. Taking a tongue-in-cheek approach to examining the religious right in America, Mr. Bradley critiques through the guise of his female protagonist all that can be deemed extremist pabulum of the Conservative Christian movement. Are we failing to live up to the unflinching standards of the Almighty? Did our Lord and Savior really mean to contradict Himself so much? Mr. Bradley slash Mrs. Bowers attempts to explain all or to skewer all by repeating many of the inconsistencies which exist in the Bible, the supposed word of the Lord. I say supposed word of the Lord as today's followers of the Holy Book have either completely forgotten or never knew in the first place that the Bible as been mistranslated, misinterpreted, and re-written for political gain over thousands of years. Is the Bible the word of God or the word of men attempting to put together an historical record of the day? Seem sacrilegious? Was John Smith visited by an Angel. Was Hubbard right about Xenu? Over the past few years, America has been under siege by the far right, the Tea Party and notables such as Michele Bachmann, Rick Santorum, and Rick Perry. Heck I could go on and on and on. At least with Mrs. Bowers we have somebody who is completely sane in their insanity.

Final Word
If you've read this blog, you know the author takes exception ot the religious zealots who think they have a personal direct line to Jesus himself. Michele Bachmann, Rick Santorum, and Rick Perry open their mouths and say the most hateful, vile things. At least I can say Fred Phelps is a lunatic, but those three people were running to be the candidate for the Republican party. How in heavens name did these right wing crazies even get into politics? Due to over-crowding, did the institutions do an early discharge?

Thank you Mrs. Bowers for a breath of fresh air, fresh satirical air but fresh none the less. I still have hope that we're not going to hell even though those confused people standing over there with the placards are yelling that we are going to hell. WWBD = What would Betty Do? Sounds funnier than WTF.

What Would Betty Do? How to Succeed at the Expense of Others in This World--and the Next
In a world of reflected glory and shameless name-dropping, no one can touch America's most puritanical pundit, Betty Bowers. Betty is so close to Jesus, He's given her His loaves and fish recipe. And only Betty knows how many shopping days there are until the Apocalypse. As she is fond of saying: "If God created me in His image, I have more than returned the compliment!"

In Prada and in prayer, Betty has devoted her life to bringing people the Good News: They are going straight to Hell. Thousands have aspired to emulate her joie d'apres vivre by logging on to her popular website, But only now, with What Would Betty Do? does she finally reveal her spiritual survival secrets. You'll discover how, come Judgment Day, to be whisked through the 10 Sins or Less express line. But first, you will have to learn how to vote (for God's Own Party, the Republicans), whom to hate (Lie-berals and other non-Baptists), and what to throw (a soirée -- and then a few stones!). "After all," warns Betty, "if Heaven is just going to involve running into all the people you avoided on Earth, what would be the point?"

Unchic? Unsaved? Wavering faith? Wandering hands? A pair of $650 Manolo Blahnik pumps that won't go with anything? No problem! Just ask yourself -- What would Betty do?
