Apparently, Stephen Colbert is right. The Free Market Fairy seems to be punishing us:

In a September 25th blog post titled 'The Nation Will Right Itself If It Fixes Sex', Christian Civil League of Maine Executive Director Michael Heath writes that the financial crisis facing Wall Street is a symptom of America's sinful sexual culture, including the acceptance of gay unions.
So, since the market failure is benefiting Barack Obama's poll numbers, does this then mean that the self-loathing Free Market Fairy is pushing for an Obama presidency?

Somebody should get out the Ouija board because we clearly need some answers here.

U.S. sinful culture --> financial crisis?

That's wacky.

Hadn't heard about that over here. I don't think our radical right is **nearly** as ''radical'' (nor ''right-wing'') as yours...!

GG: That's because we've gone crazy.

Ooh! (Just thought of this!)

But: If the Wall Street crisis is God's retribution -- does that mean that that those bearing the biggest brunt are the most to blame?

That is: that various rich folks are the most to blame -- and that poor folk (who don't own stocks) are blameless?
