Mt 13:24 [paraphrased] Another parable He put before them, saying, "The kingdom of heaven may be compared to BP who constructed and operated a dangerous oil-drilling rig in the Gulf;
25 but while men were sleeping, anti-America/anti-Israel anti-fossil-fuel terrorists came, rigged booby traps, and went away.
26 So while the rig was running OK, there was an explosion, and the undersea gusher starting spewing copious amounts of oil into the waters of the Gulf.
27 And the Obama Administration and the media came and said to them, 'Hey BP, did you not intend the oil to stay in pipes leading to the oil tankers? How come it is now polluting the waters of the Gulf, killing fish and birds, bankrupting fisheries and tourist attraction businesses all along the southeastern seaboard of the United States?'
28 BP said to them, 'Hate-America-and-Israel/Blame-Bush-and-Cheney anti-fossil-fuel activists have done this.' The enraged nation said to them, 'Then do you want us to go and stop all drilling and go completely dependent upon Saudi and antisemitic Mideast foreign oil?'
29 But BP said, 'No; lest in stopping all U.S. drilling you endanger America's and Israel's oil-dependent national security.
30 Let oil drilling continue on with stringent and understandably-discriminatory-against-terrorists exclusionary prohibitions, while we all investigate everyone involved in the horribly-devastating environmental disaster; and when we are through doing that, the Obama Administration will determine which drilling should continue where with innovative and thorough security safeguards for acquiring and storing oil safely in American stockpiles, while Obama's law enforcement punishes and destroys the anti-fossil-fuel anti-America anti-Israel terrorist network responsible for the terrible and diabolical harm done against people, property, and wildlife not merely nationally but with international consequences.'"
