    I have no words....... :eek:



    Wait..... Yes I do. How about, from now on, ANYONE running for office has to take a comprehensive written examination to gauge their knowledge of the constitution. If they fail, they cannot run for office.

    Sometimes I wonder if it's all a big joke, and they're looking to see how many people they can foil into believing them. It's like a religious version of Jackass.

    He's either very calculating and slimy along the lines of Newt (based on his audience) or he is a complete ignorant, revisonist idiot regarding one of the basic tenants for the founding of the U.S., freedom of religion and freedom from oppression.

    -John Adams, Treaty of Tripoli

    -Thomas Jefferson, Virginia Statute for Religious Freedom

    1st Amendment to the US Constitution


    Wonder what Tom DeLay has to say about those.

    Speaking of religious jackasses, Michelle Bachmann is running around these days telling people that Obama was only re-elected because of white guilt.

    These people know exactly what they're doing.

    Yep, play to the lowest common denominator, emphasis on the common.

    Thought that was the definition of politics. Just update a bit for the new era:

    politics: 'seeing how many people you can foil into believing in you'

    In this case, if God takes credit for creating the nation, then God's followers get to control it. A political version of dominion over the creatures.

    This is the same Tom DeLay that championed sweatshops on the American territory of the Marianas Islands...including sex slavery and forced abortions...and stalled legislation that would've put a stop to it.

    Excuse me, but Tom DeLay is such a hypocritical a******. He and God don't even have a nodding acquaintance. :mad:

    I always figured that if Jesus used any gun, it'd be a Desert Eagle.

    Think about it. It makes sense.

    When Jesus comes marching home again,
    Hurrahh! Hurrah!
    We'll give him a hearty welcome then,
    Hurrah! Hurrah!
    The men will cheer and the boys will shout,
    The ladies they will all turn out,
    And we'll all feel gay when Jesus comes marching home.

    Uh-oh. I wonder how the right-wingers will feel about that last part...

    If Jesus came to earth Christians would kill him.

    I use the First Amendment all the time against the true believers and I always get a reply along the lines of, "See, that means this IS a Christian nation. You can freely choose to believe in Christianity and the one true God."

    I then ask about being free FROM religion and religious indoctrination and get an answer of, "You can choose to be religious but you cannot be free from religion because everyone believes in something, even atheists."

    Where do the Tom DeLay's of the world get these sort of answers?

    It was people like DeLay that made me give up the Republican Party! The Baptists are running the Republican Party. The "Religious Right" is just a code word for bigots.

    The strange part is, that Baptists at the time the Bill of Rights was written were suspicious of the Constitution, and, were fully supportive of the First Amendment separation of church and state. At the time, the Constitution was seen as being about governance.

    The first time I ever heard a religious group considering that the Constitution being divinely inspired was with respect to the Mormons. But, that is a religious belief of Mormons, not history.

    More recently, this idea has been picked up by certain folks on the far right who are willfully falsifying the history for their own political purposes. I would be surprised if this falsified history is supported by any mainline Baptist church.

    Please explain.

    I'm not a Bible scholar but every link I can find online appears to explain that this quote from Jesus telling his disciples to sell their cloaks and buy swords is not literally what he intended, one example. Of course this is the Bible which has been interpreted in a variety of ways and the suedo-theists like to pull things out of context while they ignore others.

    His conviction was overturned by some judges in Texas. They subverted the outcome of a jury trial.

    According to Delay:
    This kind of rhetoric coming from the sleaze of the earth, I hope is upsetting the hell out of the almighty. ;)
