Anyone who's been around here for a while knows I'm not too fond of organized religion, and that I outright loathe the use of religion as a political tool. And not just because it caused the absolute fucking moron in the Oval Office to be re-elected. To put it bluntly, anyone who attributes a tragic event to God's wrath has no fucking place in the political arena, let alone alongside a major presidential candidate.
Luckily, this time around we don't have to deal with it. After all, they wouldn't support a Democrat if they were begged, and John McCain has gone on the record on, for instance, Jerry Fallwell, that he is an "agent of intolerance." So we should expect a 2008 Presidential election free of the targeted ignorance of these mentally deficient Jesus freak theocrats, right?
It was such a nice thought, too.
What he said: “I believe that the Christian right has a major role to play in the Republican Party”
What he meant: “There’s no fucking way I win this without them so I’m going to be their whore”Let the record show that anyone who took part in the slander of John Kerry and his "flip flops" in 2004 is a hypocrite if they vote for McCain in 2008. But then again, I suppose that calling those swiftboating squikks hypocrites is like noting that the sun is kind of hot.
I hope I only have to say this once. If you appear alongside the likes of Jerry Falwell, you are tacitly supporting his bigotry. It really is that simple.
