    why do these asswipes always say something and the next day apologize. they are never sorry for what they say only that someone caught them saying it. he said it he believes it. so to the people of alabama you voted for it you got it live with it.

  2. Dee says

    Just wanted those of us with no faith to feel disenfranchised. Christians always forget that there are other religions when they attack atheists.

    “I am sorry (that I got caught saying what I did).” We all know that he believes what he said because he’s Christian and this is what their mandate is. If you’re not a Christian you’re not going to Heaven and thus, you’re going to Hell. I don’t actually believe in Hell, or Heaven, or even the Bible…but they do. The closer we get to 2012 the crazier the crazies are getting!

  4. Martin Johns says

    How come no one ever holds these alleged Christians feet to the fire about spouting the opposite of what JC espoused?

  5. says

    Another CLASSIC fake apology using the stock phrases “seemed to disenfranchise” and “never my intention” and “If I did make anyone . . . feel . . . blahblahblah . . . let me say I am sorry.” You aren’t sorry, idiot, you’re another cowardly cliché who won’t stand behind your own words.

    (Where’s Ted to defend the bigot?)

  6. Charlie-o says

    “I’m sorry I said out loud what I think.” Not really an apology, but nowadays, it’s pretty much what passes for one.

  7. says

    What about your constituents with no faith? You may try to ignore them, but they do exist and as their Governor you are sworn to protect their rights as well. What a loser!

  8. says

    I do not forgive him for his remarks. period. I’ve heard this kind of crap since I was a kid and I am certain behind not-so-closed doors there is a lot of winking and nodding concerning his remarks.

    What if the same gesture was remarked concerning race? Would a simple apology be acceptable?

  9. patrick nyc says

    He just said what most of these freaks believe. In his case we got to see what is hiding under the white sheet and hood.

    What do you know. Bentley just took Mississippi out of the cellar as far as bigoted governors go.

  11. Dear_Comrade says

    Did you know that the word “Bible” is the oldest acronym in the world? it stands for “Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth”. Their all a bunch of gullible idiots!

    Once the horse is out of the corral there is no getting it back in!!! dude you said, it’s part of the public record and your legacy!!

    I was brought up as a christian – as I expect in the broadest sense of the term were many who read this blog – I simply do not recognise the “christianity” that these “born again” types believe in.

    I do not beleive nor have I attended church for a long time (bar weddings…)but I do recall christianity being a relativly straightforward faith based upon love for one’s fellow man.

    Quite where these people get their fire and brimstone “faith” from is of interest since it sems to have more to do with excluding their fellow men rather than reaching out to them.

    This man’s faith s certainly not any branch of chrisitian belief that I know of.

    Whatever happened to all the nice christians I used to know as a child who had good manners, sang tuneful hymns and often carried out good works in their local communities for years without any fuss or thanks ?

    Maybe I’m just an old conservative but I liked old style christians not this nasty new breed.

  14. plaintom says

    A certified member of the American Christian Taliban. A bigot(no doubt) but also an idiot (he revealed the true face of the religious right publically). “Bob we know your right but you can’t say that outloud, them pinko yankees will put it in the paper”

  15. FunMe says

    He’s an old guy, so it’s good that we won’t have many of those kkk type HATEFUL people around for long.

  16. says

    another butt hole who has had to back pedal for his stupid statement that now proves to the population just how bigoted and narrow minded he is

  17. TANK says

    But the real question is whether or not he likes cake. Because if he doesn’t like cake…irredeemable disgrace. bullshit heaped upon bullshit…so deep and thick from a lifetime of it that nothing he says for the rest of his life will displace it. Ah, alabama…where the men are all alcoholics, the women all have black eyes, the kinds are all overweight and nobody has the proper number of chromosomes.

  18. Roman Bolliger says

    All those rancid idiots seem to like the glory of standing in front everybody, undies on their feet.

  19. Danny says

    You didn’t “disenfranchise” anyone. If you were not an idiot you would realize the term refers to the right to vote.

    You didn’t take anything away from anybody, you boorish lout; but you did make yourself look exactly like what you are: an ignorant ass.
