Have some more American Taliban

I suppose I should stop writing about Ricky, but he gives me so much to work with

When asked if he believed Obama is a “sincere liberal Christian,” the former Pennsylvania senator said he didn’t believe that sort of ideology exists, and that Obama’s church, United Church of Christ in Chicago, had “abandoned Christendom” and used a non-literal interpretation of the Bible.

“I don’t think there is such a thing,” he said of Obama as a liberal Christian. “To take what is plainly written and say that ‘I don’t agree with that, therefore I don’t have to pay attention to it,’ means you’re not what you say you are. You’re a liberal something, but you’re not a Christian.”

Admittedly, he has a point. What kind of Christian would suggest that hoarding wealth is a bad thing, that paying money to the government is necessary, promote dealing with enemies with pacifism, and not judging others? Jesus was all about blaming the poor for their situations, attacking enemies with violence, and hating others for their transgressions. The Bible never, for example, suggested praying to have one’s sins forgiven, as one forgives those who sin against them. That’d be liberal bullshit.

  1. I think by the time this election is over, half the American population is going to have brain damage due to stupidity.

  2. I think rougly 36% have brain damage now (the percentage of self-identifying Republicans, according to that epitome of accuracy, Rasmussen polls).

    I’d agree with you Keth, but I seriously doubt more than 15% of the country is paying the slightest attention, and we’re all blogging our brains out about it. We might be psychotic by then.

    •  Well, I’d agree with you on the brain-dead Republicans.  And after thinking about it, I think you’re right.  I think a majority of the country gave up caring about this election before it even started.  The ones that do care, blog about it, or if they’re on the right, throw fits about it like children throwing tantrums.

      Honestly, I think almost everyone in the US is psychotic by now in one form or another.

  3. There will always be a question about the Religion of Barack Obama as long as racists are asking it. The sad fact is the GOP is questioning the religion of THE sitting President AND the frontrunner of their own Party. They have digressed 50 years to the 1960 election where they questioned whether a Catholic should be the President.
