GOP pundit Grover Norquist was recently bested by God (@TheGoodLordAbove) in a battle of wits, and fans were all about it.
“What new commandments are needed today? Thou shalt…” prompted God in a tweet.
What new commandments are needed today? Thou shalt _____

Though there were many great responses (“Thou shalt not kick your dog five times just for chewing a bone loudly like Tomi Lahren did.”), only one caught the attention of Americans for Tax Reform founder Grover Norquist. Unsurprisingly, it was a comment which read, “Smite Grover Norquist.”
Smite Grover Norquist.

Norquist saw his name and retaliated the next day.
if you are not competent enough to debate-….Then yes, …thuggery is your best option.
stick with it.

And that’s when God got in the mix.
Note: a smite from God does not imply ‘thuggery.’ It implies divine intervention to punish those who have fallen short of God. So for Grover, the smite for his love of money would be that his taxes go through the roof. Only HIS taxes? Even better. 😂

God is referring to Norquist’s adamant opposition to any and all tax increases. Norquist couldn’t let the matter rest there.
So theocrats cannot be thugs. You missed whole centruries of world history.

God clapped back, telling the GOP pundit to stop making things up.
No one said that. You are making things up again. Of course theocrats can be thugs, they are working with your adulterous and treasonous president right now. They condone every manner of bigotry and cruelty.
Btw, it’s spelled ‘centuries.’

“Adding extra letters increases my carbon footprint,” replied Norquist, as though the destruction of the Earth is some sort of burn rather than a disastrous legacy for future generations.

Then God dropped the mic.
You made the critical error of misspelling a word and have been bested.
In a battle of wits, you were soundly defeated by an anonymous twitter comedian.
⚡ SMITE! ⚡

Twitter appreciated it.
I cannot even begin to tell you how this made me laugh.
