Is that a real quote by him?
Yes, it is a real quote. Not only that, but it drew a torrent of angry invective against Obama from the right; because they DO believe that religious freedom means their right to tell the rest of us how to live. Mitt Romney's fellow Mormons in California, for instance, believed that it was their right and duty to get a law passed that dictates moral standards for all Californians - moral standards that must conform to their religious beliefs.
It also means that you can believe the most amazing twisted things before and after breakfast. Sadly the mute or delete button does not work all the time.
The religious right should celebrate, but watch their backs, an atheist voting majority could be fun..
Amazing. Does this make him a closet atheist or just a really respectful and intelligent Christian? Hmmm
A: A really respectful and intelligent Christian. There are some of those out there.
His was also the first inauguration address to specifically recognize nonbelievers.
His mamma was a non-believer!
I have known some very dear loving christians in my time, these are the ones I would love to share the world with. But there are others that use their religion as a bludgening weapon, and will go out of their way to be cruel to others that do not share thier appreciation for slogans and BS. Sadly, I have had run ins with this bunch more times than the other group..;p(.
Hmm. Christians might look at atheists protesting prayer in governmental contexts, creches on the town hall lawn, etc., as trying to impose our view on them. Not agreeing with them. I'm just sayin'...
I don't think Obama should be portrayed as evil, but a man stuck with crap following two administrations of the same nuttyness, and poor policy promoted as great ideas, for the few.
If we let Romney in, we should expect more 'acts of god' in our future.
