Romney’s right-wing religious supporters have a terrifying view (and a disgusting one) of liberals:

 

Here is why we have to keep Romney and his buddies away from controlling America:

 

So liberals are Nazis and are going to gas Christians like Nazis did Jews in WWII era. Also, I don’t think Christians in America are a minority… hopefully only the ones who share Pat Robertson‘s obscene attack. And Robertson sees Romney as his buddy.

 

So… do we all live in the same America? I don’t think so.

 

Cassy Zobel, a 34 year-old, white democrat who lives in Mckinney Texas, had a rude awakening Friday morning. Her neighbor rang her doorbell to alert her to the vandalism and blatant racism on her property.

Zobel found that someone had covered her Obama/Biden sign, displayed in her yard, with offensive graffiti on both front and back.

I find it interesting that our little suburban city was just named the 2nd best place to live in America. I suppose there should have been a caveat. “Best Place to Live If You’re A Bigoted White, Christian, Anti-Gay Person Who Doesn’t Support Our First African-American President And Hates Everyone Who Does”. That was probably too long a title, though.

One day we may become a country for everyone.

 

As a “Kind Atheist” being preferred by any God is a gift I do not require, nor would I open it if received.
However, “Hateful Christians” are in the same category to me as “Hateful Muslims” or “Hateful Jews” or even “Hateful Atheists.” Being hateful is one of the reasons this whole world has been steadily going to pot.

The sign got a mention in Larry Bingham’s column in The Oregonian, and he says it’s making more headlines.

The Rose City Park United Methodist Church minister’s recent sign, which says “God Prefers Kind Atheists over Hateful Christians” is making headlines all over the place.

My colleague, Religion Writer Nancy Haught, cites it in her story on the shifting terminology between “religion” and “Christian.” And The Christian Post also has a story.

I Ran The Polls on Republican Voters in Mississippi and Alabama…

…so here is the similar poll of Illinois Republicans before their primary.

Here’s the results of a PPP poll of Republican voters planning to participate in the Illinois primary — you know, the state where President Obama was a resident, state senator and U.S. Senator.

Do you think Barack Obama is a Christian or a Muslim, or are you not sure?
Christian: 24
Muslim: 39
Not sure: 37

Do you think Barack Obama was born in the United States, or not?
Was born in U.S.: 36
Not born in U.S.: 36
Not sure: 28

Do you believe in evolution, or not?
Believe in evolution: 41
Do not: 43
Not sure: 16

These folks who are “not sure” are a curious bunch…especially on Obama facts, a politician associated with Illinois for years.

The World of Political Absurdity: Arizona legislature passes circumcision law…

How crazy this country has become… we can add this to all the Birther beliefs that, I’m told, 40% of Americanshave. Maybe Trump will get behind this one.Here’s an idea, add a penis check to the Airport Patdown to avoid allowing non-American terrorists onto Arizona planes.

Arizona Law Says Lack of Foreskin Acceptable Proof of Citizenship

Part of the controversial Arizona birther bill passed on Wednesday makes a certificate of circumcision (given to parent of a Jewish child after the religiously significant procedure is performed) acceptable proof of American citizenship for presidential candidates. While candidates won’t be asked to “whip it out” in the State House, a documented circumcision will join a verified Christian baptism, postpartum hospital records and long-form birth certificates as proof that candidates are indeed Americans.
Governor Brewer of Arizona has not taken a public stand on the bill, and will now have five days to sign or veto it before the law is automatically enacted.
One might question if the radical birthers are now not only trying to shape the definition of who makes a viable U.S. president, but also what makes an American penis.
Sign the petition for Governor Brewer to veto this bill here.

Congress as the Home of Religious Humor…

Jim DeMint

Senator DeMint

This from a longer article in Salon by Alex Pareene… I would just like to note that Republicans are willing to try just about anything to be assholes:

DeMint and Kyl are also the primary authors of my favorite new political argument of 2010: That holding votes near Christmas is insulting to the Baby Jesus. It’s “sacrilegious,” according to DeMint, to vote on things right before Christmas. Kyl made the interesting point that it’s insulting to Christians to go to work between Christmas and New Year‘s, a week during which most of the remaining Americans with full-time jobs are indeed expected to make an appearance at the office.

As far as I’m concerned, they can stay in session until the day the new Congress takes over in January.

Uganda is being criticized by the world for its proposed anti-homosexual law…

clipped from carnalnation.com

Since the international media began reporting on and criticizing a bill proposing the death penalty for some gays in Uganda, President Yoweri Museveni has found himself in a difficult position on the world stage.
Mr. Museveni said, “It’s a foreign policy issue, and we must handle it in a way that does not compromise our principles but also takes into account our foreign policy interests.”
“The prime minister of Canada came to see me and what was he talking about? Gays. [UK] Prime Minister Gordon Brown came to see me and what was he talking about? Gays. Mrs Clinton [the U.S. Secretary of State] rang me. What was she talking about? Gays.”
Dr. Ruhakana Rugunda, Uganda’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations, told reporters, “There has been a gross-misunderstanding, because [the anti-gay bill] is not a government sponsored bill, this is a private member of Parliament who proposed a bill.” He added, “The government has not taken a formal position of the matter.”

The thing that is most disturbing to this blogger is:

Evidence has recently surfaced that this unduly harsh, anti-gay bill may have some roots in America, particularly in the fundamentalist Christian community. Mr. Museveni, a key African ally to these fundamentalist interests, has previously said that homosexuality is a European corruption of Africa. While the three-term Ugandan president seems to have had a change of heart, it likely has more to do with money than an actual moral epiphany. But that’s politics.

This “change of heart”, however seems to mean only that the death penalty may be removed. The proposed law is not going away.
