Ah... pardon me, but what the fuck is going on in this country lately? Since when did all this God-talk and church stuff in our politics and politicians become ok? When the Republicans and their loony evangelicals started with this crap about eight or ten years ago, I figured it was just those far right-wing wackos. Since when has mainstream discourse in this country moved squarely into far right-wing evangelical wacko territory?
"Faith-based initiatives"? As a fucking Government program? When Bush and his holy-roller brigades first proposed this bullshit, a gasp of disbelief went up from Democrats and many Republicans too. Now Barack Obama is trotting this crap out as HIS program proposal too?
Excuse me, but when did America and American government get this much in bed with religion? With all these "faith-based" initiatives Obama is preaching about, do you think he’s going to be that willing, or able, to represent those areas that run counter to the religious dogma of these faith-based organizations? A woman’s right to chose? Gay rights?
It’s just becoming a little too creepy the way George Bush, many Republicans, and now Barack Obama are spouting off all the God talk and appearing in countless churches and pulpits. You NEVER saw a politician at a pulpit or going on with religion talk. Now it’s all over the place. God this, faith that, and now insane faith-based initiatives – FROM A DEMOCRAT.
If I wanted to live in a fucking church congregation, I’d join one. I want to live in a country with separation of church and state.
