Folks, this video from CNN (which I’d love to embed, are you listening wordpress.com?) is a great example of why the culture war needs to end.
- President-Elect Obama might not be Christian according to this pastor – but neither can you even remotely make the case from President-Elect Obama’s own words that he could possibly be a Muslim. It would have been nice if Rick Sanchez actually would have pressed that point.
- The pastor’s contention that the separation of church and state isn’t part of the constitution is just whacko. The establishment clause is there to keep the establishment of a church state so we could go beyond toleration of other sects and actual free practice of religion.
- The statements from the Pope and Billy Graham actually don’t correspond to President-Elect Obama’s. They actually hold to one path – who is Christ.
- Where did the 3 branches government based on Isaiah 3 come from? I mean, what?
Poor interview technique (I’m sorry Rick, but Jefferson wasn’t even in the country during the Constutional convention) – and worse correlation by someone who comes off as a mental light-weight in the name of making sure that he’s not on the side of the guy who won the election. It’s a scorched earth reaction to what the view as a tragic loss.
Here’s the thing – these folks have every right to have their religious opinions – but I with that they’d care more about the type of response they are gunning for in posting what amounts to lies and innuendo on their publicly viewable signs.
