    The Last Word

    So I watched this interview yesterday on MSNBC, (if all of you lunatics are allowed to watch Fox, I can watch MSNBC from time to time :hihi: ) I didn't know which thread to put this in, probably should have put it in the atheist one, but who knows, so I started a new thread because of a few strange thoughts I had after watching this.


    Anyway, it got me thinking, what the hell is going on in this country? How are we electing raving lunatics? I really didn't care about the comments from this guy on Gun Control, that doesn't bother me, what bothers me, is the way religion has been injected into politics.

    Here is another example...

    Alabama Governor Robert Bentley Sparks Controversy With Christian Comment - Terra

    On MLK day, the governor of Alabama is pretty much telling everyone who isn't a Christian that they suck, and that they should conform or he doesn't want anything to do with them.

    This is America. Not the Christian Kingdom of the United States. I understand that everyone should be free to worship whatever deity they want, but don't mix it into laws, and don't mix it into government, on any level.

    I googled it, and the only sites I can find that mention it (through 3 pages of results) are stoner sites.

    i dont think you understand what "confirm" means. when did he say it? in what context?

    fox news says obama is no good. is that "confirmation"?

    dot-connecting is not your strong suit. you shouldnt accuse me of hero worship when i agree with your stance that reagan was an idiot about drugs. i am simply skeptical of the quote.

    again, i see no reason to believe your quote is true. you remind me of the followers of glenn beck.
