Blues_X: He needs a dick punch.
EatTheWorld: Weaver95: Theocracy is bad. I don't care what god you worship (or don't worship), any theocratic government is bad. I won't vote for it, and in fact i'll fight against it. the Founding Fathers were very smart folks. they knew that a theocratic form of government was a terrible idea, and took steps to make sure the US government wasn't infected by a state sponsored religion.I agree. But just for funs sake, couldn't we say a government that cradles us from outside the womb to tomb, with topside government health care, food stamps, EIC, retirement, you know, kinda of like all of our real need? health, food, money, and oldfart worry free. Not that I'm saying government is good at any of these things, but they try, and mean well. To me that is a religion to the state. When the government has all that control on your food, health and money, they control you. Worse than religion actually.
EatTheWorld: Weaver95: you cannot scrub the Jesus out of the Republicans no matter how hard you trywe could try? if we put Perry, Bachman, Akin, Santorum, and all their batshiat crazy friends on a boat to Fiji, I know that would be a good start.
simplicimus: Gothnet: my herniated disc: between this guy and the legit rape guy I really have to ask W.T.F America??seriously... WHAT THE fark IS GOING ON DOWN THERE????!!!!!As an outside observer all I can conclude is that the republican party is going for the religious, jingoistic, nationalist moron vote this time around, and as it's the US it stands a slim chance of working...This time? We've been doing this for decades. What you are seeing is a nation in its death throws.
quickdraw: Mugato: Satan really gets a bad rap. Unlike God, there's nothing in the Bible about Satan committing genocide or killing children. All he's really accused of is hiding fossils and giving an apple to a naked chick.Mug you never disappoint me.
FlashHarry: what an epic moron
neomunk: namatad: But it is crystal clear that the tards who claim to know the mind of god are delusional.*raises hand* I... I know the Mind of God, at least partially.It's writ large all across the universe. In every event which we perceive, the Mind (perhaps the Word) is there, obvious to all who can see.You see, 2+2 is ALWAYS 4. The cube root of 27 is ALWAYS 3. Without fail. Every time. EVERY TIME. If omnipotence exists, it most certainly has dictated that the ruleset we know as mathematics is trump, irresistible in effect and omniscient in its ability to account for every related variable.Math is the OS of reality. That HAS to be the will of any existing God.Now that you know my Canon, and I have told you that I know (at least partially) the mind of God do you think I should be denigrated as a fool for my religious beliefs?
TheVeryDeadIanMartin: thisisyourbrainonFark: What temptation might look like.[www.pensitoreview.com image 550x344]Just curious, why do American politicians have to eat sausages? Is it the same as having to wear a flag lapel pin? Wouldn't it make more sense to eat a hamburger?
MrHappyRotter: To err is human, but Rick Perry is asinine.
Keizer_Ghidorah: simplicimus: Keizer_Ghidorah: So, this God guy, he creates all of existence in 6 days. And he creates all loving things from the dust of the earth except for the human woman, which for some reason he takes a rib from man and makes her from it. Sounds like that's saying women are the property of men and are lesser beings, since they were made from existing man and not from the dust (and before he created woman God, the all-knowing one, had to ask why man was so sad and lonely as he walked alone among creatures who had male and female)...Cool, except that Eve was woman 2.0. Version 1.0 was Lilith..Who refused to be dominated during sex and was tossed out of the garden by God, then ran off and humped demons.
MrHappyRotter: Don't blink, you might miss it when Rick Perry actually does something awesome for a change.
EatTheWorld: Religious freedom or lack of one at all is just as much a cornerstone of our nation as is free speech or the 2nd. The bible thumpers are killing republicans.Rick Perry leaves one to thank god for satan... goddamnit you moron you are not helping.
yourmomlovestetris: Silly Jesus: Being religious should automatically disqualify one from holding public office.Oh? And how would you define "religious?" What if someone holds onto a socio-political idoloegy which functions just like a religion but doesn't involve the worship of a god? I know atheists who firmly believe that certains stripes of radical feminism, Marxism and environmentalism to be defacto religions in and of themselves. (Involving something resembling Original Sin [patriarchy, pollution], and the belief that one can attain a heavenly utopia on earth just by observing certain rules and behaviors. And believing that it's right to force people into adopting the way of life THEY believe is best for everybody.) One doesn't have to believe in a god to hold irrational, emotion-based beliefs. Or to be a menace to free people everywhere.
EatTheWorld: Darwin's Prophet: And so the race for the Republican 2016 nomination begins.OMG can we do better than a Daily Show emmy season next time please? Like serious people? Maybe? PLEASE?
meat0918: Perry should also be reminded then that according to his Bible, all earthly authority derives from God.Therefore, God chose Obama.//Also, revolt is a sin just like witchcraft, so knock off the secession talk!
Unoriginal_Username: This just solidifies my belief that these fundies are jealous of their Muslim counterparts.
Diogenes: The funniest thing about these jerks is that they don't realize (or deliberately choose not to, which is much worse) that the separation clause is there to protect them as much as it is to protect our form of governance. It's a two-way street.
Weaver95: EatTheWorld: Somacandra: Statism exists in a variety of ideological flavors. Its not a religion itself though--religions have rituals. Specific nationalisms on the other hand are quite religious. American civil religion has its sacred scriptures (Const, DOI), its rituals (voting, pledge of allegiance) and its mythic narrative it convinces itself its about (twirling, ever-twirling towards freedom and progress).semantics I say. What is the difference between fanaticism for the church or the state?while that's an interesting side discussion, it's not really all that relevant to THIS conversation...which is about a key member of the Republican party who's pretty open about his wish to turn the USA into a theocratic regime.

dickfreckle: Do you charlatan sh*tstains ever get tired of using the word "warfare" to describe what's actually "we're pitching b*tch-fits whenever we can't force our dogma on the public?" Whiny-ass, spiteful p*ssies, the lot of you
EatTheWorld: And it seems clear that is the way democrats want it. Therefore the liberal religion is born.
Mugato: Satan really gets a bad rap. Unlike God, there's nothing in the Bible about Satan committing genocide or killing children. All he's really accused of is hiding fossils and giving an apple to a naked chick.
Lumpmoose: Let's just get these out of the way:Believing with you that religion is a matter which lies solely between Man & his God, that he owes account to none other for his faith or his worship, that the legitimate powers of government reach actions only, & not opinions, I contemplate with sovereign reverence that act of the whole American people which declared that their legislature should "make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof," thus building an iron curtain has descended across the Continent. Behind that line lie all the capitals of the ancient states of Central and Eastern Europe. Warsaw, Berlin, Prague, Vienna, Budapest, Belgrade, Bucharest and Sofia, all these famous cities and the populations around them lie in what I must call the Soviet sphere" - Winston Churchill
