Ummm... is there any way at all that the next president of the United States will tone down the religious stuff a little? I have to wonder when the candidates for that office all seem to feel compelled to say stuff like this:
Democratic presidential hopeful John Edwards says Jesus would be appalled at how the United States has ignored the plight of the suffering, and that he believes children should have private time to pray at school.Well, maybe Jesus would be appalled. But, what happens if Edwards is interviewed by this outfit? Does Edwards believe the FSM too, would be appalled?
"I think that Jesus would be disappointed in our ignoring the plight of those around us who are suffering and our focus on our own selfish short-term needs," Edwards told the site. "I think he would be appalled, actually."
I have no problem with people and their religion. I have always maintained people can do what they like in terms of faith if it harms no others. But government is a different thing! Jeebus ain't there! Neither is the FSM!
Hasn't the last six years taught anybody anything?!
Marisacat finds the sentiment and makes a terrific statement.
