Default New Ala. gov: Just Christians are his family

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/us_alabam...nor_christians

Quote:

Speaking at Dexter Avenue King Memorial Church after the official inaugural ceremony, Bentley told the crowd that he considered anyone who believed in Jesus to be his brothers and sisters regardless of color, but anyone who isn't a Christian doesn't have that same relationship to him.

Quote:

"If the Holy Spirit lives in you that makes you my brothers and sisters. Anyone who has not accepted Jesus, I want to be your brothers and sisters, too," Bentley said.

I am all for the separation of church and state period.
Let the debate begin.

reminds me of when hillary was running for president and whenever she'd make a speech to a southern black crowd, she'd have a noticeable 'southern black twang' to her speech pattern, and then in other situations it wasn't there. they kept playing the clips back to back on the radio lol.

politicians smh

Tell me something - what did Jesus ever do to you? Now I'll tell you something - what Jesus did do FOR you, was provide a gateway out of this sick and wicked world we all live in, and free yourself from sinful death.

There's absolutely no reason for you to be so butt hurt making comments like that about the Son of God.

one of them is a politician, the other is not. one of them was making an ironic joke based on stereotypical speeches given by people who receive awards, the other was not.

lol, Gervais was hilarious, almost brilliant in how he worded it lol! If anybody didn't see that, here's a link to it: http://tv.gawker.com/5735192/watch-r...obes-monologue

Definitely a bit uncomfortable. I don't think he should have put in that part about Tom Cruise and John Travolta. I don't think Tom Cruise is a homosexual tbh. I am not a fan of his, but I know he dated many hot women over the years that was pretty public; I dunno how is he a homosexual. I dunno about Travolta, just remember that he had an autistic son that died somehow and couple various other random details like he owns his own runaway and owns a couple large airplanes.

As for the topic, ehh.. I definitely think that there has to be a separation of church and state, but we all know that won't happen. No atheist or agnostic will ever be president whether they are smart, well-respected or just wise. First of all, they won't be able to even be a candidate by winning the democratic side or republic side. Secondly, if they somehow get win the position, the general public will never vote for them. Non-Christians will not be presidents. Even within Christianity, wasn't JFK the only Catholic president ever? or at least the first one ever or something? I forget; anyways like I said, the general public cares too much about what religion the president is that church/state will never be fully separated (the average public probably thinks that this was made a Christian-Protestant country and all of the fathers were all Protestant, which is obviously false).

the most sound and reasonable post ever posted.

divisions win elections. this is why right wing politicians and commentators are so effective. they constantly draw a line in the sand and a number of people (a majority if done successfully) are forced to pick a side.

in real life, there is a much more abstract ebb and flow, not everything is so cut and dry, but trying to finesse things in politics (essentially how things should be handled) is frowned upon.

those who are resolute in conflict are celebrated where in reality they are stubborn and hard headed.
