Political candidates are giving God a rest

I began to notice God's absence shortly after Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich, both bellicose Catholics, left the race for the White House.

"The bishops are painting Obama as the enemy of "religious freedom," openly attacking the president's views on issues such as gay marriage and contraception." ---- We should be openly attacking the bishops for promoting religious views over personal freedom. Also everyone should be forced to really understand more about Mormonism in order to vote for Romney. All the Christians I know consider it a cult more than a religion.

Oh no, do you mean to tell me that God is not on either side for this election.

Oh no, do you mean to tell me that God is not on either side for this election...... God is not for this country anylonger, since they turned their back on Him.....

Mormonism may SEEM bizarre until you sit down and consider some of the things that Christains believe without any problem whatsoever. Magic underwear and holy books found under a rock and the angel Morroni are no more "cultish" sounding than the vestments that catholic priests array themselves in and the scrolls uncovered in the deserts of the middle east and the angel announcing to Mary that she would be the mother of god. All equally bizarre, all equally unproveable, all fables and fictions.

The religious attacks will come, but they will be delivered by the PACs, not the candidates themselves. If the ads poll well, then more will be given. Everyone gets "Swift-boated" these days in whatever way will hurt the most, regardless of the truth of the situation.

All equally bizarre, all equally unproveable, all fables and fictions. If fiction one would find the Bible in the fiction section of the library.
