    I’m so sick of all this “faith” / religious bulls**t…….keep it at home , like your pet cat.

    Don’t they have any thoughts on social programmes or education ? Or employment or the proper management of out of control health insurance companies ?

    Is governing all about Jesus and making more money ?

    Oh puh-leese. America is fine with a Christian candidate. We are NOT fine with the bigoted, Anita Bryant/GOP/Bachmann/Perry style Christian which seems to have taken over the Republican Party. Most voters will never be comfortable with those politicians who want America to become a theocracy, and increasingly they are becoming uncomfortable with the relentless verbal gay bashing that has become the Christian Right’s stock in trade. (Not to mention the relentless Maggie Gallagher-style “we are a victim of those vicious gays” crap. Blaming the victim is the oldest trick in the book.)

    Can’t they see by the resistance to Perry and Bachmann that even the Republicans don’t like their style? Starting off your campaign with a prayer vigil hand in hand with SPLC certified hate groups with former ties to the KKK? You want to know why your tanking? Look in a mirror.

    “Wah, wah, wah…I’m being persecuted because I’m a Christian…”

    What a lie!

    The views of Christians and Jews hold enormous power in America over the views of other religions and atheism.

    Rick Perry has pimped his self out as a Christian bible thumper.

    Everything they do is calculated to keep and maintain their political power and wealth.

    It’s disgusting!

    You’ve got to be tough to last in politics. Anita Perry doesn’t seem to have the right stuff to be a first lady. The religious right sure has become whiny.

    What is it today? Bible-believing Xtians on parade? First I had to quote Jesus telling people how many times they should whip their slaves (Luke 12:47-48) in the previous thread. And now this?! This is Anita baby! The woman who caught her hubby, Rick Perry, in flagrante delicto. Yes, she caught him in bed with another man, Geoff Connor, who was Texas Secretary of State at the time. The story was convered by the Austin Chronicle:

    http://www.opednews.com/thoreau022704_texas_governor.htm

    Supposedly, the reporter found no evidence yet, but half the state of Texas found out because Anita Perry has such a BIG MOUTH. The story has it that the day after, she was screaming at Rick Perry over the phone at her office, threatening divorce. Needless to say, the entire office, and by extension the entire state of Texas, found out all the details.

    Will someone give these Xtians their own TV comedy show?

    Oh, those poor, abused Christians! Maybe one of these days a Christian will be elected President and they’ll FINALLY get a voice in government!

    Oh, wait. EVERY single f*cking President has been at least nominally Christian and we get the “Christian” viewpoint shoved down our throats every god*amn day! So maybe Perry should STFU and run for head of the Southern Baptist Convention and leave politics to people who aren’t busy counting angels on the head of a pin.

    If these KKKristians were more like actual Christians, we wouldn’t mind them at all. But they’re not. Not at all. They’re pushy, arrogant, greedy, bigoted and power-mad. They don’t make for good neighbors.

    I have a bias against stupid candidates. Ones that the press sets low expectations for and then if they don’t stumble they win when they clearly were outdebated. Bachmann, Bush and Perry all fall into this category. It has nothing to do with their religion and everything to do with their intellectual short comings.

  9. Gill Bates says

    Wow. Just when I thought that the ‘pubs couldn’t possibly say something even stupider they go and do it.

    Her comment alone is enough to disqualify Perry IMO.

  10. Jonathan OZ says

    I might add that Christianity has nothing to do with their religion either. Feed the poor, heal the sick. Care for the afflicted. These are the opposites of their political platforms and their lifestyles. Christians should repudiate them as frauds.

  11. Akula says

    you know I’d more then happy to vote for a real christian, you know the kind that advocates helping the sick and poor and needy just like that liberal hippy Jesus said to. it makes me wonder what a REAL Republican like Theodore Roosevelt (the first president to push for single payer health care) or William F Buckley would think about the current state of their party.

  12. say what says

    she also cried about her son choosing to quit his job with deustch Bank to work his fathers campaign was somehow Obama’s fault (SEC and exchange has a rule against financial types also working political campaigns due to some silly rthing like ohhhhh being a bought politician/ conflict of interests etc)

    But yepp she cried and cried that her son of his own free will quitting his job to work his father’s campaign was obama’s fault and she and he can sympathize with lower class peasants that get fired by no choice of their own

    If perry was so stupid and inept to sink his own campaign, which he has, her constant wa wa wa would ruin it for him

  13. say what says

    @akula

    I can tell ya what W.F. Buckley would say….back in the day he was instrumental in pushing the John Birch society types (modern day tea baggers, libertarians, etc)into the basement. He considered them all idiots only worth letting out to pull a voting booth lever

    The John Birch society happened to have been founded / funded by the Koch brother’s father

  14. Life Is Tough says

    It was a tough month, some of the servants at the country club were indifferent to our presence and some of our favorite black friends won’t speak to us now because they were never invited to Niggerhead which we only did to spare them the embarrassment of it all, and now we have to have that wonderful rock defaced, and people have been downright mean about it, and, and that Cain candidate has been rude, but wouldn’t you know it, with a name like that, he’s no Abel, probably doesn’t even read the Good Book else he would have changed his name, more like McCain did, and and …….so forth (till the mike was unplugged).

  15. Schlukitz says

    Anita really needs to climb down off that cross of hers.

    Thousands of years of brutalizing and murdering of gays, and she’s complaining?

    Get serious, girlfriend. Read up on your glorious history. *snark*

  16. Davelandia says

    I have nothing against Christians, but I don’t see what it has to do with anything politically based. Perry – and all of them for that matter – need to keep their religion out of it, then maybe they won’t feel so “persecuted”.

  17. Esurb says

    The Religious Right is so brazenly absurd: While they bleed the 99%, take over the country, and turn Christ principle on its face–calling Obama a Nazi and racist–they fend off being labeled the hateful, greedy revolutionaries they are. If only the Perrys had their way and their state were allowed to secede. Like the bumper sticker I had made says: Read my lips: NO NEW TEXANS!

  18. Rayyblon44 says

    Ms. Perry has a talent for pulling a 180 degree switcheroo on reality. On the contrary: Given the state of the Rethugliklan party today, it’s mainly BECAUSE of Perry’s fanatic religious views (plus his swaggering, creepily violent rhetoric) that he exploded into the lead in the polls right after announcing his candidacy. Once the novelty wore off and he revealed himself to be mostly Michele Bachmann in male drag and just as empty headed and devoid of good ideas as she, he plummeted, DESPITE his religious views, not because of them.

  19. greg says

    No, you’ve been “criticized”, not brutalized for your extreme, not-even-Christian views. WE”VE been brutalized; strung up like Matthew Shepherd, lied about by your Family “Research” Council, taunted and unsupported from the pulpit and, by extension, our families, sent to mental institutions, gas chambers, and forced to leave our homes and create new lives with those like us who really care. Spare me.

  20. Tyron says

    This was right after Anita whined about her son “losing” his job because of government regulations … boo freakin’ hoo … her son QUIT his job because he wanted to work full time supporting his airheaded old man’s political campaign. According to Mrs. Perry God told her to have Rick run for President – but Michelle Bachman said God told her to run … so either one (or both) are lying or God has one really wicked sense of humor by picking to buffoons to run against each other claiming to be God’s chosen.
    And as for the whining about about Rick being picked on because of his faith (Rick whose minister just called Romney’s religion a cult and whose party has tried to convince people that Obama is a Muslim) … I think Anita needs to go back and read her Bible … there is much said about faith but never does it mention that one should use it as a political tool and/or an excuse for their own stupidity.

  21. Jon says

    Being from Texas, we would appreciate if you could take one more Texas governor off our hands and put him in the white house. We can’t another Anita whine.

    Proverb: “There are none so blind as those who will not see”

    Translation: There is no one so bigoted as one stupid enough or, unfortionitaly so weak minded, that they believe the fictional writings of ignorant early humans as to actually believe in GODs and other misterious beings.

  23. Jerry6 says

    Our founding Fathers tried to separate Church and State, but they were intelligent men. The wording of the Constitution was, to them, quite clear, but, unfortionately, Religious believers are ignorant, by definition, so the words of the Constitution are too complex for them to understand. (And most of us have to suffer because of their ignorance.)

  24. Rich says

    Something like 80% of Americans identify as Christian, hardly a persecuted minority. If you are being ‘brutalized” it is because your husband is a total moron who is completely unqualified to be president. Maybe too, for the fact that he hunts at a ranch called “niggerhead”.

  25. Pointed says

    No, not being brutalized for being christian, just being brutalized for trying to make everyone christian by forcing religious doctrines on the people by way of legislative law.

  26. Byron Mullet says

    To all of you “swat the Christians into the corner crowd.” No other religion but Christianity could have invented America. So just get over it. Where do you think the ideas for our distinctive laws and rights come from? Answer: The Holy Bible
