    What these blowhards don't know about the Bible is stunning!

    Oh, they can parrot with the best of 'em (apologies to parrots, who have better sense) but when it comes to critical thinking......pffft.

    As you (and Tater Salad) say, "You can't fix stupid."

    We cannot call ourselves a civilised society if we refuse to protect the weakest among us.

      To give just a couple of examples:

      Huckabee's belief that "The United States is a 'blessed' nation" has no biblical basis whatsoever.

      E.W. Jackson wrote a book with the title "Ten Comandments (sic) to an Extraordinary Life". In it, he invented a completely different set of "comandments".

      OK, I know, E.W. Jackson is an easy target, but if he had written such a book in 15th century Spain, he would have been brought before the Inquisition as a heretic.

      What the Huckabees, Becks, Palins, Romneys, Frank Grahams, et al preach is Dominionism, not Christianity. They should be called out on this a lot more often.

      •  I could agree that the U.S. is a blessed nation... (4+ / 0-)

        just by the wonder of it all.  

        That does not mean, however, that I want Huckabee and his ilk to decide what, if any, gods should be involved in our lives.

        The Jackson book was mocked in the media, and rightly so.  If you cannot spell Commandments, I doubt you can understand them enough to instruct others regarding them.

        What that lot preach may be Dominionism; what they practice is hucksterism of the most egregious kind.

        We cannot call ourselves a civilised society if we refuse to protect the weakest among us.
