    Bachmann (R) & Cain (R) claimed they got "The Big Guy in the Sky" endorsement :eusa_pray: to run for President. If they dropped-out of the race waht does that say about their cult..... errr..... religion?

    It would have been best had they relied on science and not faith, real history and not the history as revised by ideologues, and if they had a basic understanding that the American people are not all Christian, conservative and consonant.

    Doesn't say a damn thing about their religion, but it does say something about their arrogance.

    It means no one speaks for God. Shocking.... I would have thought that was obvious. Apparently, I was wrong. Some people really are just jack shit stupid.... the OP for example.

    It's quite a good point worth thinking about.

    Before the Battle of Agincourt, King Henry asked for God's help in victory when the odds were overwhelming. A few bowmen were able to devastate the French army.

    George Washington asked for God's help in the Christmas Eve battle where half frozen and starving patriots turned the tide of war.

    The inescapable conclusion is that claiming that God is on your side is far different than asking politely. It is a trusim that anyone who claims to speak for God is not going to succeed in whatever they do. It sort of is more of an indication that God exists and doesn't take these upstarts lightly.

    How do you know that Bachmann and McCain did not ask for it politely, hmmm?

    I doubt McCain challenged the all powerful one to a fist fight.

    And I seriously doubt that Bachman won any debates with God, so what makes you think they did not beg and plead with god to support them until they heard the words "OK, my son/daughter!!"?

    Why would it say anything more than the two of them were wrong? Or, perhaps, God being more intelligent than me, perhaps they were right, and they got something they needed out of the experience.
