On February 7th “Santorum, a former Pennsylvania senator known for his social conservative policies, said that Obama’s agenda is “not about you. It’s not about your quality of life. It’s not about your jobs. It’s about some phony ideal. Some phony theology. Not a theology based on the Bible. A different theology.” By STEVE PEOPLES, Associated Press
I’m sorry but this is what is frustrating/irritating/angering/ me about this presidential debate, the birth control debate, the “marriage” debate, the bullying debate and so much more…
The “Christian” base is being used as the basis of this country….. but we have forgotten that a boat left europe to leave religious rule by the government. And now we are in this situation once again…. religious rule by government and voters are allowing it. Do you really want to go back to the Mayflower?
This country has locked up American Germans during the World War, the same with Japanese Americans, and now we are doing the same with Muslim and Somalian Americans because of their religion not their race.
“Christianity” is being taken as the basis of this country…..I’m sorry but ChINO is being taken as the basis of this country. Christianity In Name Only. Taking only certain parts of the Bible to make laws work in their favor, or make groups or policies look bad because the Bible says so. Yet if you bring up other parts of Bible like: be kind to others, all are gods children, and so many more.
We have Jews, Muslims, Orthodox, and Mormons leading this country and we have a presidential candidate questioning the president’s christianity? Any government official, public servant, elect official that keeps their religion out of their politics is a good public servant…. religion does not belong in government.
If we allow religion in any form to be in government we are back to the Mayflower. The United States blames other countries for not learning from their pasts and yet does not learn from its own past faults. We blame color and religion for the problems of our country, and now we blame women’s freedom for the problems of our country.
I think its time to take a look at men’s stupidity for the problems of our country, white mens stupidity, severe white conservative religious men’s stupidity… that is our problem once again along with the media’s uproar of a single topic in taking our civil liberties away.
30 to 40 years we received our civil liberties (but women) and since then our conservative bias media has blown drug abuse, theft, abortion, women’s rights and so much more out of proportion that we now have legislature and congress following media and religion as to what laws should be.
Last but not least, those that do not pay attention or stand up for the cause or vote or voice an opinion, you are as much of the problem. You must do something, your life is not that busy, if I can run a family with a husband deployed, run a city, and still have time to be an activist and vote, you can take 15 minutes a week to do your part.
Religion does not belong in government unless all religion is taking part.
