Right now Obama is getting chewed on by his own side about the minister who is going to give the prayer at the inaugural. There are lots of reasons to have issues with this, but the thing that is bending the press out of shape is the fact that Christians believe non believers are going to hell. Hello, how is this news? What is even more bothersome is that some folks are trying to wash this reality away. Christianity is based on sacred texts. You either take them as a whole, as the whole is divinely inspired, or you dump the whole, as not worth your time. If you are not a christian, my advice is to invest in asbestos. That is the reality. You don't want my kool aid, fine, I won't force it on you, but that is the basis of the religion ever since the texts were standardized. If you don't believe in the christian doctrine, why are you praying to the christian gd? What is the point of that hypocrisy? Personally, I don't like the idea of blessing the Obama administration with a prayer at the beginning. Why does everyone have to have it both ways? (BTW, this particular rant is not exclusively at the left or the Obama people. The prayers of the right seem often to be little more than vultures saying grace before a meal) Anyway, you either believe or you don't, if you don't, don't pretend that you do.
