Not my words folks. Her own. Yes just when we thought that Nadine Dorries had no lower to go when talking she goes and gets the Royal Flush of insaneisms (yes I know that isn’t a word but it really should be – its great).
As you may have seen elsewhere as it has been bouncing around the blogosphere today, Nadine Dorries in an interview with The Salvation Army has said that she is only an MP because God decided that is how it should be. It has nothing to do with her or anyone else making a decision using their own free will. She is an MP because the puppet master that is God who is playing out her life for her (and I presume everyone elses) thought that if he had one of his people on the inside on backbench politics then it was a sure winner.
I would argue that if God wanted control then he’d use a better conduit – maybe the President of the United States, or the Prime Minister or whoever is in charge of Manchester City Football Club. They all have power and would be a much better conduit than a backbench MP who at the time was in opposition so not even in the government.
Using my so called logic I have to argue whether or not God made the decision that Nadine Dorries would become Nadine Dorries MP. I would say maybe the people on the Mid Beds panel decided that she was the best person for the job but I understand that as a non-believer I know nothing. I’m just a silly little boy with no understanding of the greater work that a being with the power to create a universe has in store for every single one of us.
If God really is a puppet master using people as conduits then I wonder why he got Nadine Dorries to go after a married man and then have sex with him causing the man to break one of the ten commandments. That doesn’t sound like something God would do. He wouldn’t put someone in a position to break one of his own commandments condemning them to Hell would he? Maybe I’m just being a tad cynical here and in fact there is a greater plan.
Look I hate the God defence has you cannot prove it one way or the other. If a defendant in court says that he murdered his family because God used him as a conduit then he would be laughed out of court and found guilty. You cannot use the God defence to justify anything and it doing so all you are doing is making it out that you are a superior person to others because God is using you.
You want to know something folks? Nadine Dorries is not a superior person. She is all flesh and blood like you or I. She makes her own decisions using free will. If she wants to say that it is all God’s work then so be it. If she wants to be delusional then that is her prerogative. The thing is we need to remember that it isn’t true and she cannot use the God defence for good when she also does bad.
We have been given the power and ability of independent thought. It is a wonderful thing. I think and hope we all use it and in her case she does but she hides behind her God line. Adolf Hitler once said, ‘Hence today I believe that I am acting in accordance with the will of the Almighty Creator: by defending myself against the Jew, I am fighting for the work of the Lord.’ We knew he was wrong – so very wrong – no-one can justify what they do because it is the will of God. We do things because we feel it is the right thing to do. Whether what we do is right or wrong has nothing to do with God but to do with us and who we are.
Nadine Dorries has the same thoughts as Adolf Hitler that she is doing God’s work. It wasn’t right when he did it so is it right when she does it? That is only a question that she can answer but in conclusion I think it is fair to say that I disagree with her completely. You can believe in God and you can believe that he can influence you in your decisions in life but to say that you are doing God’s work and that you are just a conduit for him to use is just not believable. You have to take charge of your own life and whatever you do – you do – it isn’t because someone was using you or your body for their own will.
