I haven't enjoyed a campaign this much since Christine "not a witch" O'Donnell.

I've noticed that whenever someone mentions the Judeo part, they're usually defending something that would offend the majority of American Jews.

But man, this guy is like the embodiment of every whiny f*cking conservative persecution complex.

Objection to persecution is persecution.

Objection to racism is racism.

These twits never matured beyond "I'm rubber and you're glue."

He's complaining that his Christian religion may leave him functionally unelectable, even without an explicit test in the law that would precluding him from holding office were he to get elected?

Pretty much. I always want to respond to "Judeo-Christian" by pointing out that the only overlap is the Judeo part, so put down the BLT there tough guy.
 
2013-06-19 02:55:14 PM  
Your traditional world view isn't all that traditional, and your version of Christianity is already severally watered down and mutated from what was practiced just a few hundred years ago, let alone a couple thousand.

You don't get to claim persecution for being criticized in the same way that you implicitly criticize your forebearers.

Jewish-Americans overwhelmingly reject the term "Judeo-Christian." Especially given that Judaism and Christianity don't share anything that Islam doesn't share with them both too.

Bonus---try to find anyone using the term Judeo-Christian who actually mentions the Talmud or Rabbinic Judaism in any form. The only legit example I can think of offhand comes from MLK, who actually discusses the Jewish philosopher Martin Buber in Letter From Birmingham Jail. That's pretty much it.

How about we just say "Abrahamic death cult" then?

Can you have religious views that are at odds with a secular society?  Absolutely.

Can you hold those religious views and run for a public office and not expect to be held to the fire for your views?  No, and kindly go f*ck yourself for thinking the answer is yes.

So, his response to someone asking him to defend his statements is to claim he's being persecuted? Sounds like a shoe-in for office and a fine example of modern republicanism.

FTFA:  I think Americans are tired of being told that holding to Judeo-Chistian values somehow makes you an idiot, as you put it, makes you backwards, makes you ignorant and unless you buy into the sort of contemporary morality play of the day, you are a person to be shunned.

Every time I see that phrase "happens to be", I'm always reminded of George Carlin's rant on the subject:

"'Happens to be.' 'He happens to be black.' Like its a farking accident, you know. He happens to be black? Yes, he happens to be black. Ah, yes, yes, yes. He had two black parents? Oh, yes, that's right, two black parents. And they farked? Oh, indeed they did. So where does the surprise part come in? I would think it would be more unusual if he just 'happened to be' Scandinavian."

Even more annoying is how people like to pretend we owe our modern liberties to "Judeo-Christian values". No, those modern liberties only started to develop a full millennium after Christianity became the dominant force in Western culture, and often those liberties developed despite considerable intransigence from religious institutions.

If you aren't in favor of stoning people that work on the Sabbath, you're already picking and choosing which parts of your religious text (bonus: the Judeo- part) you're going to enforce.

Ditto for bestiality (AFAIK, no state has capital punishment for this crime; they certainly don't kill the animal as well - as mandated in Leviticus, same section as NO HOMOSEX), blasphemers, idolators (Catholics...?), anyone who curses a parent, anyone who has sex with a woman engaged to someone else (they both get it), if a woman doesn't protest while getting raped ("legitimate rape", anyone?)...and that's just part of a list of offenses that demand a death-by-stoning.

Oh, and drugs are OK (so long as you're not performing a religious service under their influence), no age restrictions on alcohol (ditto), no democracy (the Bible specifically describes the monarchic/theocratic government in Deuteronomy; the king gets daily haircuts, and has to wear a complete copy of The Law on his arm), polyamory is OK (but not polyandry), revenge-murder is OK (assuming the decedent was killed by accident and the accidental-murderer didn't make it to a sanctuary city), and daily sacrifice of bulls is mandatory (as well as some expensive sacrifices for holidays and other purposes).

Methinks most people, when presented with what the ACTUAL Bible says about governance, would prefer the "agnostic" system we have now over that. EW James can take his cafeteria religion straight the hell to Damascus.

What I find disturbing is that no one either has the balls or the brains to call them out on it to the point of showing how idiotic their point is.  It seems that the only one who does it effectively during a debate is Obama.

You know, I point out frequently that Islam is an Abrahamic religion to Christians all the time and that the history of Christianity involves horrific crimes of a massive scale. They still don't care. They will invent reasons why Christians were justified in committing genocide and insist that Christians aren't violent today.

Couple of years ago I got hired to do a web site for a guy running as a repub for the Massachusetts state legislature (nice work if you can get it, by the way). He told me he wanted his slogan to be "Competent, Conservative, Christian." I asked him if he was sure he wanted to play up the Christian angle here in the People's Republic and he said "Absolutely." The next day I got a call from him telling me to take off the Christian part. His campaign manager had given him a good talking to.

He lost. Big time.
