No, Sean, apparently you do not. Does it matter, though? Do you somehow feel there would be more relevance to our communication had we met before? Isn’t the subject more important than a formal introduction to, or previous knowledge of, the author?
Does your world only extend to those you know and accept as peers, or are you perhaps dependent on a wider circle of people, even for your necessities?
Are you trying to hide under a rock, denying you are involved in party politics?
I didn’t realize that God took sides in Canadian politics. I was once involved in party politics, but haven’t been the Wanuskewin NDP president since April.
Have a good day.

Sean, there is a valid explanation for your reaction, which you would not have considered. The Scriptures testify of the state you are in as follows:
“But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned” (1 Corinthians 2:14 MKJV).
They also make known that it is possible to know that which the natural man does not:
“But he who is spiritual judges all things, yet he himself is judged by no one. For who has known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct Him? But we have the mind of Christ” (1 Corinthians 2:15-16 MKJV).
The natural man (one without the Spirit of God) is entirely oblivious to all of God’s doings, so why wouldn’t he find it “funny” when any are brought to his attention? Especially when he interprets what he hears through his corrupt senses, twisting the truth into perversities and absurdities that reflect, not God’s mind, but his own. Trusting in his knowledge and powers of interpretation outside of the light of God is the arrogance and sin nature of the natural man at work, resulting in confusion, loss, and evil.
Your conclusion about what we are saying is wrong. We are not saying God is partisan in politics; as the Scriptures testify, He is “no respecter of persons.” He weighs the hearts and determines, past the appearance of things, whether or not something is good or evil. We, by Him, are not speaking of coalitions or parties or systems of government per se, but about what is happening with these particular persons and attempted coalition at this time. It is God’s judgment and not ours.
