This is why Christians in the United States drive me bonkers

Obama doesn’t mention God in his Thanksgiving day speech, and they squeal and whine, making it today’s nontroversy.

Keep in mind, he didn’t say anything to denigrate Christianity or make any anti-Jesus allusions, and in fact the speech was chock full of gratitude to our military and selfless volunteers, but simply because he did not thank God, Christians are pissed off. In their minds, political figures should always show deference to them and their faith. To fail to do so is a horrible offense.

When actual oppressed minorities talk about being oppressed, they refer to Rick Santorum likening gay marriage to bestiality. When Christians talk about being oppressed, they refer to not being given special treatment.

  1. Sigggghhhhh. Almost makes you wish he’d read from the Quran, doesn’t it?

    When did Thanksgiving become a religious holiday anyway? Oh, that’s right; that was when Jesus came over on the Mayflower and ate with the locals.

      I, admittedly, giggle/snorted at this. Although why they came over on a boat when they could have ridden a flying dinosaur, I don’t know.

  2. The speech also referenced “being our brothers and sisters keepers”. Maybe I labor under the misapprehension that a Biblical phrase was being used. But who knows where that atheist Kenyan Mohammedan got the wording from. Saul Alinsky’s rules?
