Seems the church, however, would like it to be in this case.
So does it surprise you that US politicians have to pander to the religious? I am not really sure what your thread is supposed to be about.
Just pointing out that it's not only the "Republican crazies" that involve the church in their agendas. Obama is doing it even without the support of the actual church.
That's a little weird, but they're reading way too far into it. It's a frame or two or a church where they liked the aesthetic. It was probably picked via google maps or a stock photo library, and that may not even be real footage. It could just be a stock photo that is panned over there given the limited range of movement. I'm just trying to add some perspective here. These things get blown way of proportion at times. My guess is that you feel this happens more on the side you identify with, and it's possible. The GOP really does say some scary stuff though even when you watch the full available footage.
Oh, that is the point. I guess I take it for granted that US politicians MUST pander to the religious. Even though it is more often just lip-service than heartfelt belief, voters buy into that malarkey even though time after time the most overtly "religious" politicians also tend to be the biggest hypocrits.
Is this the 1.27 second shot in question?
This is the only church I could find in the African Americans for Obama ad. It's a quick pan showing the exterior of a neat old church building that's a mere total of 1.27 seconds in length. I must have blinked the first time I watched the video because I had to go back a second time to even find the shot in question.
Seriously... Is this what all the hubbub is about?
So, an ad by the Obama campaign uses an image of a church? What the hell does that have to do with the separation of church and state?
It has nothing to do with it.
It's desperation and nothing more.
I feel that the next thread will be about Obama's fake US Birth Certificate.
And after that ads about how Obama uses time travel to plant evidence of his own birth in Hawaiian newspapers.
so you're finally able to admit that "republican crazies" are involving churches in their agenda......took you long enouigh
Thread title. Fooled me!
Sorry but I don't see a story.
It could be me of course.
I give you 3/10 for effort. Pretty weak.
Come on, renewed. You can do way better than this.
I guess they are using this to counter the War on Religion meme. If Obama really wanted to stir ****, he would have them show pictures of mosques.
indeed........it leaves me wondering if renewed has any idea what "separation of church and state" actually means
Have I posted the word pathetic enough lately?
LOL @ OP. You are severely transparent.
I guess that it's like separating an egg. You have the whites on one side and the coloureds on another. But if the OP is not careful the 'yolk' will be on him.
For that joke you are banned for life.
So bad ... it hurts.
Very entertaining replies. I realize it was a stretch but it was worth it to see a thread that didn't solely bash on the Republicans for once. Although the recent GOP candidates are looneys, they aren't the only idiots that need change out there.
Why stretch if there are lower hanging fruit?
So, out of some attempt at equivalence you made an unsupportable argument?
I'd say this tells even more about the Republican party's failures, in a week in which a dozen or so threads contained actual things Republicans did nationally that were thread-worthy, your best retort is a few frames from a commercial.
You sure about that?
