  •  Obama's response... (9+ / 0-)

    It's obscene to compare Obama's very thoughtful response (to a completely different question no less) to Rubio's dodge.

    Obama was asked what he would tell his daughters if they asked him if God literally made the universe in 6 days. His response is a very smart and thoughtful way of addressing the tension between faith and science, without denying what science tells us while also trying to hold onto the core truths he believes are taught by his religion without taking the bible as literal truth.

    If more politicians took the enlightened, thoughtful approach Obama articulates, we would not have a problem.

    •  McCain gave a surprisingly enlightened response... (4+ / 0-)

      ...when asked about evolution in 2008, saying he believed what the scientists say about evolution but also sees the wonders of god in nature, or some such.

    •  One doesn't have to believe religouse magical (0+ / 0-)

      thinking nonsense, such as creationism, virgin birth, resurrection, etc etc. To practice the teachings of Jesus, one need only to feed the poor, heal the sick, be an advocate for peace, and love thy neighbors--even the obnoxious ones.

      the Republican brand is totally bankrupt.
