Is it . . . is it okay for a major politician to say these things? Am I living in a country where this is okay now?

You always were. You just didn't know it. No one else did either.

So awesome.

I look forward to Cal Thomas insinuating he's the Antichrist.
Xenocide
Hey, who else read Cal's colum from the day the Sex in the City movie came out? He tried to the moral decay it represents to Barack Obama, and told us that "my grandmother had a word for women like the ones on sex in the city: WHORES."

Cleaner82
To be fair, the Sex and the City women have always disgusted me. Less for their sexual freedom and more for their lack of souls.

To be fair, he fits the bill pretty tightly.

This is the belief system you end up with when you not only believe the Bible, but you actually read it.

Barack: "and by the way, I am against abortion for religious reasons, which means I think God told me to do this, but I will not enforce God's will. He's only GOD, after all, and we disagree about what God has to say. I am a rational person, after all."

Despite what the Bushes say, we are indeed Americans.

Baldr
Bush II said that you guys should be considered Americans in his debate against John Kerry. I found it to be a pretty impressive statement, given what Bush I said on the subject.

glasseye
I stand corrected.

oswaldtheluckyrabbit
Bush I once referred to the Religious Right as the "extra-chromosome crowd"

Xenocide
I love this guy so much more now. A politician who talks about the Bible AND ACTUALLY UNDERSTANDS IT? Holy shit.

Of course, it's just a matter of time before this gets plastered all over Fox News. Well, not this, but out-of-context clips of him saying "we are no longer a Christian nation," "a Muslim nation," and a nation of nonbelievers.

+1000 stars for the line about the sermon on the mount.

Did Obama hire Julia Sweeney as his speech writer?

Cleaner82
Haha, I love this guy. I look forward to see what color and texture of bile people will spew in this direction.
waxeater
Love this dude, and I love what he's saying, but I don't love the fact that we're in a situation where he needs to say it. Let's hope that can change.
sheikurbouti
Every time she hears his voice, Michelle Malkin's eyes cross a little bit more.
Blackbetta
And every time someone writes something like that, Michelle collects it for her "look what the liberals say about me" file and uses it like a defense whenever she says something completely out-of-line.

That's not to say you're not right, though. Eventually she'll have so many lines like that she'll get a hint of a clue.

Adramelech
Well... shit.

Please do.

Also, five stars.

McCain deserves to lose, America deserves for Obama to win. So yes, please vote for Obama instead of Nader.

Oh FUUUUUCK YES. This is indeed what the five-star button is for.

I don't know what the big fuss is guys. Just because he got to become the presidential candidate thanks to affirmative action doesn't mean he's any good.

There are various calendars and estimates. The other major one is a little after 2060.

Why go through the hassle when voter fraud is so much easier?

Stopheles
It's refreshing to hear a Christian who's actually read the Bible (and maybe even follows the red-letter text, rather than just reading Leviticus and Revelation like the Evangelicals)...almost as refreshing as hearing a Presidential candidate who is likely Smarter Than Us.
Stopheles
Also, his point about "whose Christianity would be the official one?" absolutely NEEDS to be made.
bacon-swiss
Yeah, I'll five star that.
oswaldtheluckyrabbit
This guy might be president.
theSnake
He just says what he thinks, not pre-canned sound bites that have been focus-grouped and rehearsed. And what he thinks is always thoughtful and correct.

Calling it now: Obama wins in a landslide only to be assassinated before his first term is finished. Just because I'm too cynical to believe something with so much potential can end well.

If we live in a world where this happened and Bush continued to jaunt over golf courses I would pray for a meteor to wipe this country off the fucking map.

That's more or less what everybody's afraid of, which is what was behind the whole hilary/kennedy thing not too long ago.

If you believe in an imaginary bully in the sky, then God says a lot of things. None of which seem to have been updated since Ancient Rome. Or the Council of Nicea.
Like I said, God says a lot of things. Very little of it useful.

Aww... don't reward this flaccid blob of weaksauce that passes for Billy's counterpoint with a response.

I vote for "Shut the" AND "fuck up" please!

For years, historians have known that out of the original books that make up the Pentateuch, Leviticus was the last written. It was a coda set up by the Levite priests, whose power had waned and waxed for centuries. At one point the most common worship was dualistic: Yahweh was the Father God and Asherah, or Ashtoreth, was his female consort. The dual godship ended after millenia, but it took several periods of censorship and force to stamp out the female part of the religion for good. Once this was accomplished, the folktales of the Israelites was codified. Whereas before the texts had been simple, (and today can be recognized as a precursor in the Book of J), with the Levites they became dogmatic. This did not happen until Solomon was in power, and by that time Israel was involved in a number of land conflicts from thereon. Laws and codes such as the ones in Leviticus provided them with a stabilzing force that brought the Jews together. Unfortunately for our modern society, the anti homosexual verses were included, but not for the reasons many assume today. The laws so often referred to were created because men were encouraged to propogate and father as many children as possible. The Jews were surrounded by geography and on all sides by different belief systems, which often encroached their own culture. Therefore, an avid population was the ideal, and sperm was considered to be community property. Homosexual relations wasted the valuable oppurtunity to father children and was therefore condemned as wasteful. Over time this became differently viewed as a moral code, though the original intent was far more practical.

"So, before we get carried away, let's read our Bibles."

A message that's arrived about thirty years too late, but a good one regardless.

This is honestly the first time I've ever heard a politician talk about religion in a way that didn't disgust me in some way, and I am so not used to that.
