    Ken Salazar calls focus on the family the antichrist

    http://www.9news.com/acm_news.aspx?...MPLATEID=0c76dce6-ac1f-02d8-0047-c589c01ca7bf

    Why is it that some of these Democrats lash out in such hostile, radical ways?
    God, help me if a Democrat ever gets mad at me and calls me names or bashes in my SUV! :dis:

    "From my point of view, they are the antichrist of the world"
    Ken Salazar speaking of focus on the family.

    Btw, I didn't vote for this idiot! :yelwink2:

    What a friggin' idiot!

    Agree or disagree with James Dobson and Focus on the Family's religious/political/family ideas (and I certainly don't agree with all of them, but most of them), I don't think you'll find a nicer guy on this planet than Dr. Dobson.

    Basically, what AG Salazar is saying, is that any organization that seeks to counsel and advise families on how to get along better and love each other more by using a Christian perspective and traditional family model ideas, is evil. In effect, Ken Salazar just said that to him, family is evil. That's basically what he just said.

    Lovely.

    Does Ken Salazar remind anybody else here of "Cowboy" from "Full Metal Jacket"? You know, the Marine who claimed to be 5'-9" tall, to which his DI responded that he wasn't aware that they stacked sh*t that high?

    Whether he reminds you of "Cowboy" or not, that description still seems rather apt for the good Senator.

    Uh, not to revert to 1st grade tendencies here, but let's not forget that Dobson started this tete-e-tete by airing commercials aimed directly at Salazar, simply for speaking his mind.

    Salazar is somehow the bad guy for arguing his (correct) point that: “I think what has happened is Focus on the Family has been hijacking Christianity and become an appendage of the Republican Party,” Salazar said. “I think it’s using Christianity and religion in a very unprincipled way.”

    I've heard Dobson speak and as a nonpracticing Roman Catholic myself, I also am appalled.

    But back to the matter at hand, filibustering, geez, if there was a Democratic congress and a democratic president, we'd be going through the same process. Otherwise, it'd be just one big political party. Conflict is necessary to provoke thought and conversation.

    The point is possibly correct. However, calling Dobson and FotF "the Antichrist" is horribly antagonistic and what he is getting called on the carpet for here.


    Filibustering is not something I would call "constructive conflict".

    Not surprised you would run to Salazar's aid.
    You can try and make James Dobson look like the biggest idiot on the planet
    for his part on this but what it is is what it is.
    Salazar should've never said what he said, the comments you quoted are nothing more than comments to sugar coat the situation and to apologize
    for the origional statement.
    Salazar started this by going back on a campaign promise.

    What do you say to this Mystikalilusion, who started it now?
    What do you want?
    Religious groups or other peoples rights taken away to demonstrate when a
    politician doesn't do what he said he would do?

    BTW, I hope the Republicans do the same thing to the Democrats next time.
    I don't like childish games but what comes around goes around.

    That's exactly my point, the Republicans will do the same thing next time when the Democrats are back in power. And so will the Democrats moan and groan about it as the party in power is currently doing. As is the circle of politics. . .

    We will agree on that point.
    I'm tired of the Washington DC BS from both sides, I'm tired of the Liberal media.
    They say that Democracies last 200 years for a reason I guess, I'm just about
    ready to throw in the towel personally.
    We need term limits on everyone in our government!

    I guess you take back about just who started this mess?
    No comment?
