    Politics & Religion...

    So what's the deal here?

    If Democrats attend regular religious services how can they be so outraged by positions on ethics, morals and Christian religious beliefs and the Jewish Toras Chaim "instructions for living" espoused by politicians?

    It just seems odd to me....:confused:

    The other question, why attend services if they don't actually believe in what their being taught?

    Guess it depends on the interpretation that is taught
    for example Black Liberation Theology with its Marxist roots
    explains a lot about Papa Obama

    Black Liberation Theology is freaking scary shit. There is no nice way to look at it.

    This Nigerian professor who now teaches in Rochester was just all over Gates for his racism against islanders and continentals.

    But that's how American blacks roll.

    Perhaps, because there's a difference betwen the public and the private. What's scary is that people like Santorum don't believe it, in direct opposition to the first amendment.

    Oh apologies. I should have not been so flippant nor brief.

    Gates is the type of really scary American black in the sense that he would deprive any island black or continental black getting ahead of anyone else on campus.

    Long story. Horridly true. And Gates one of Obama's heros is the most racist of all against islanders and continentals.

    Santorum completely believes in the First Amendment.

    What are you blathering about? Or is this the new low? Or the new talking point?

    I better run to HuffPo right now to see what's going to happen on this board.

    Don't have a good comeback so you have assume I read this somewhere else? SAD! It's obvious that he'll try to turn things toward his own "theology". You should be able to see it in his trying to pin that charge on others. It's a distraction meant to confuse the issue and hide his own agenda. Why can't you see that? It seems painfully obvious to you when you see it in Obama! Take off the blinders.

    Aside from Santorum, are you saying that during a religious service you belief one way but once you walk out the door you believe another way?

    I could be misreading your implication but I wonder about this conflict...
