I was tuned in for a little bit and happened to catch her speech. Most of it was typical party gland-handling and what not, but one piece caught my attention.. and made me almost physically ill.

Quote:

Two thousand years ago a man said, " I have come to give life and to give it in full." In America I have the freedom to call that man Lord, and I do. In the United States of America we are free to worship without discrimination, without intervention and even without activist judges trying to strip the name of God from the Pledge of Allegiance; from the money in our pockets; and from the walls of our courthouses. The Constitution guarantees freedom of religion, not freedom from religion. The right to worship God isn't something Republicans invented, but it is something Republicans will defend.




Link to the source article

As someone who considers themselves spiritual but not even remotely religious, this scared the jesus out of me (hah). Seriously though, that is some of the worst and most hypocritical neocon blather I have ever heard from anybody. And this from a woman who's religion doesn't exactly have a good track record for how it treats and values women. Ugh!

I didn't think she was a great speaker. I think she is a good person, and I'm not going to criticize her for her religous views though I disagree with them.

Wake me up when an atheist shows up and I'll jump a lot higher than I will for a libertarian

Atheists whine too fucking much, at least it isn't the Muslim world.

Yeah, I got it pretty good here. If I was a Saudi I'd have been beheaded by now for not praying enough

Perhaps you misunderstood my post, as I don't see the comparison between whining atheists and Islamic zealots. Did you mean to say evangelist?
