Rush for a change of atmosphere

As Faithful Progressive noted here and here, our (not so) good friend Rush Limbaugh is back in the news for. . . well for being Rush Limbaugh, inventor of lowbrow oral flatulence. Limbaugh recently stated his belief that there are 2 gods, the god of Christianity and Catholocism and the god of the the religious left. Limbaugh himself is a big fan of the former because
"that G-d has moral absolutes. That G-d has right and wrong, that G-d doesn't deal in nuance, that G-d doesn't deal in gray area, that G-d says, 'This is right and that is wrong.'"
That is also a god who has decreed the "sanctity of marriage" and the god of religions that state marriage is for the development and protection of the family (that means you get married and have babies). That is a god that believes crime deserves punishment, and that is a god that does not look kindly on sinners standinging in judgement of others.

Rush Limbaugh, staunch defender of marriage (& protection thereof) and, now, orthodox Christianity (which sees marriage as a vehicle to procreate) has been divorced 3 times and 0 children. He does not honor that which he demands (although this yahoo seems to place the blame for divorce on use of any contraception other than natural family planning).
Matthew 19: 8-9 "Jesus replied, "Moses permitted you to divorce your wives because your hearts were hard. But it was not this way from the beginning. I tell you that anyone who divorces his wife, except for marital unfaithfulness, and marries another woman commits adultery."
Rush "Hang 'em high. Put the drugsters in jail" Limbaugh has made his stand on illegal use of drugs pretty clear:
"If people are violating the law by doing drugs, they ought to be accused and they ought to be convicted and they ought to be sent up."

"Too many whites are getting away with drug use The answer is to go out and find the ones who are getting away with it, convict them and send them up the river too."
But when it was discovered he was one of the white folks who'd been "getting away with it," he did everything possible to avoid the punishment he'd impose on others.
2 Peter: 13-14 "They will be paid back with harm for the harm they have done. Their idea of pleasure is to carouse in broad daylight. They are blots and blemishes, reveling in their pleasures while they feast with you. With eyes full of adultery, they never stop sinning; they seduce the unstable; they are experts in greed—an accursed brood!"

2 Peter: 18-19 "For they mouth empty, boastful words and, by appealing to the lustful desires of sinful human nature, they entice people who are just escaping from those who live in error. They promise them freedom, while they themselves are slaves of depravity—for a man is a slave to whatever has mastered him."
Now as he attacks those who a members of non-Orthodox [Christian] religions or members who refuse to judge others and legally impose the dictates and dogma they willingly accept by essentially accusing them of not worhsipping the "right" god, he says he was just interjecting some levity. The joke's on Rush, his god of moral absoultes that does not comprehend nuance would not have a sense of humor and would judge Limbaugh quite harshly for his trangsressions, as well as his unmitigated audacity to stand in judgement of others.

It's the seventh day of Pesach, the day we're reminded of David's song of Thanksgiving. Limbaugh, as usual, knows not of what he speaks. There is not a god of the left and a god of the right (frankly, if there were, why should anyone follow the one he can't respect and admire?), there are, however, too many false prophets.
2 Samuel 22:51 A tower of salvation of His king, who shows mercy to His anointed, to David and to his heirs forever
