So not only are they lying about what will happen because of things Obama has said he will do, but now they're lying about what things Obama has said he will do. They must be deathly afraid of him winning another election and cementing in people's minds that government can be a force for good in society.

As the most atheist lib who ever atheistically libbed, I don't give a damn if "In God We Trust" is on the coinage or not. There are more important things for me to worry about in my life than that bullshiat. I would think most reasonable people, regardless of their political or religious affiliation, would agree.

People need to go back to work. We need jobs to come back to America. We need to strengthen our economy. We don't need to get into ridiculous pissing matches over what's on the farking money.

The 'War on God' thing again?

Wow, they got nothing.

Economically they are pushing the same supply side and deregulation crap that hasn't worked in over thirty years.

Romney and Ryan's foreign policy cred can be fitted nicely into the navel of an ant with room left over for Rush Limbaughs ethics.

Beyond that they have nothing but divisive social issues that seek to put women's rights back a couple of generations, put gays back in the closet, put their version of religion into the classroom and deport illegal immigrants and their kids instead of offering a path to citizenship.

So of course when you got nothing the only course left is to lie your ass off and project all your failings onto the other guy.

Hence all the "Obama is the most divisive POTUS and the biggest economic failure EVAH" derp we've been subjected to lately.

That's not the pot calling the kettle black that's the grass calling the sky green.

If you believe that the Bible in the inerrant word of an invisible cloud fairy then you are already well into "anything is possible/believable" territory.

Not saying religion is inherently a bad thing or without social worth or that it does no good upon this earth.

Just saying that it's sad watching supposed adults either pushing or buying into this "Dems hate God and Guns and luff teh ebil Gays" rhetoric here in 2012.

Considering that "In God We Trust" was only added to US paper currency in 1957 by the conservatives in congress, it's not the end of the world if it goes away. But I find it hard to believe Obama actually said such a thing.

what's really weird is watching followers of Christ reject Christ and worship the jewish god of the old testament.

Did I say something weird? I don't think "In God We Trust" should be on our money, or be our co-national motto, or be part of the Pledge of Allegiance (which is already silly enough without it) but all that is very far from high priority IMO.

If Cthulhu recognizes humans at all, it's an off-handed remark under his breath as he scrapes the corpses and ruins of human civilization from between his toes, and admonishing himself to watch where he's stepping.

I happen to agree with you. I think it's ridiculous, pointless, and shameless posturing/pandering to the God set. I just don't see it as something either candidate should really worry themselves about. If Romney is actually concerned this could or would happen, it's clear that being President isn't really what he's after. More like Ayatollah.

To be fair, God is a tyrant.

Dedicate your life to him, or suffer.

the way I see it, the GOP wants to impose a christian version of sharia law on this country. they're just fine with imposing religious laws on everyone, they only get upset if the religious law in question happens to mention Allah instead of Christ. But when you get down to brass tacks, the GOP is (for the most part) pushing a system of religious laws and morality over a system of secular laws and authority.

I see that as a problem. I don't want ANY religious law taking precedent over secular laws. that's not why this country was established, and I consider any attempt to impose 'biblical principal' on this nation to be a betrayal of the beliefs of the Founding Fathers. The Democrats hold true to this ideal - they don't favor any religion over another. Religion isn't the center of their political party, and they don't push an agenda that stands for imposing religions on anyone in this country.

if my choice is between a theocracy lead by Mitt Romney or a secular government lead by Barak Obama - then my choice is going to be Obama. that's just how I see it.
