"Somehow or another there's this, ya know, steel wall, this iron curtain or whatever you want to call it between the church and people of faith and this separation of church and state is just false on its face," the governor said. "We have a biblical responsibility to be involved in the public arena proclaiming God's truth."

yeah, I'm pretty sure the Taliban says the same f*cking thing.

Is subby's "state of satan" thing referring to some typo that's no longer in the article? Headline is "Rick Perry Blames Separation Of Church And State On Satan"

State On Satan != State Of Satan

"This is your State."
"This is your State on Satan."

Dear Gov. Perry, I do not like your God. I do not like your religious rules. I do not share your delusions about how life works. You were hired to run a state- not run a church.

Fine then. Let's shred the Constitution and declare an official state church. Universal Unitarians it is! Weep in despair hateful evangelicals and other angry right wing religious folks!

Well, unlike last night, I'm going to lump all my favorite quotes from The Devil's Advocate together.
"John Milton: Why not? I'm here on the ground with my nose in it since the whole thing began. I've nurtured every sensation man's been inspired to have. I cared about what he wanted and I never judged him. Why? Because I never rejected him. In spite of all his imperfections, I'm a fan of man! I'm a humanist. Maybe the last humanist."

"John Milton: Let me give you a little inside information about God. God likes to watch. He's a prankster. Think about it. He gives man instincts. He gives you this extraordinary gift, and then what does He do, I swear for His own amusement, his own private, cosmic gag reel, He sets the rules in opposition. It's the goof of all time. Look but don't touch. Touch, but don't taste. Taste, don't swallow. Ahaha. And while you're jumpin' from one foot to the next, what is he doing? He's laughin' His sick, farkin' ass off! He's a tight-ass! He's a SADIST! He's an absentee landlord! Worship that? NEVER! "

"John Milton: Free will. It's like butterfly wings: once touched, they never get off the ground. No, I only set the stage. You pull your own strings."

Maybe that's a typo. Perry is actually blaming it on "Stan" by Eminem.

"And it falls on us, I mean, we truly are Christian warriors, Christian soldiers, and for us as Americans to stand our ground and to firmly send a message to Washington that our nation is about more than just some secular laws."

Did he hire bin Laden's speech writer or something?

What a farking idiot. I can accept that I live in a state with a population that is a lot more conservative than I am. (I'm pretty far left, so this would even be true in California.) And thus that we'll probably have Republican governors for a while. But a governor who thinks the devil walks on the earth seeding people's minds with doubts, calls himself a Christian warrior, and denigrates secular laws?

This is the kind of thing that fuels fear that a new Holy War is coming. Not in the MidEast, but right here, as soon as some tipping point is reached where the Dominionists have enough control to actually make a de facto state religion.

Hell, they're already making sure "certain folk" can't worship as they please, and with all the Israel talk, it only feels like a matter of time until they pile us all on boats to be shipped back where we came from.

Perry misheard the voices in his head: they were recommending he take statins to control the state of his cholesterol.

Yes, Jesus did write the Constitution just before he rode into Jerusalem on a velociraptor, but Satan got ahold of it after the crucifixion and put in the church and state separation part just for the lulz.

It's not 'crap', it's pagan decorations commemorating Christianity, and it's being threatened by people who don't like pre-Christian religious traditions.

Or maybe it's the Socialists...

Notabunny: 08/24/11 Never Forget

A new survey conducted late last week by Gallup finds Perry to be the choice of 29 percent of Republicans and Republican-leaning independents nationwide, followed by Mitt Romney with 17 percent,


That just goes to show you that Romney was indeed the best the GOP could get this election cycle. Every single candidate had his time (some less time than others) at the top and yet they all couldn't match Rmoney's ideas and/or deep pockets.

Wait, what? Romney's put forth an idea? I thought he was following the Nixon playbook: I've got an idea, I'll tell you all about after I'm elected.

I agree with this.

I also think it's like winning "The world's tallest midget" contest. Romney was the worst of an amazingly bad bunch. (Well, Huntsman was better, but apparently he was a pinko communist or something.)
 
2012-09-21 04:16:52 PM  
"We have a biblical responsibility to be involved in the public arena proclaiming God's truth."

That's weird, I don't recall anything of that nature in the governor's oath of office.

"I solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support the Constitution of the United States, and the Constitution of the State of -state-, and that I will faithfully discharge the duties of the office of governor of -state- to the best of my ability."

If Perry is putting another authority above his oath to the people, shouldn't that be a problem??

If you can't put the duties of your office first, don't run. If you can't even see the line, don't run, or at a minimum, don't vote.

I long for a day when politicians no longer use Jesus as justification for any of their policies or stances and no longer blame Satan for the things that go wrong.

If you can't justify your position with anything but "because Jesus" then you have a weak position. And if you are blaming Satan for something bad, you're completely ignoring the real causes of the problem to the detriment of all.

To repeat myself, again:

Also, as a liberal Catholic, his Jesus is not my Jesus.
