Guess if I run for office I can be assured the Newt won't vote for me. Whew!

"How can you have judgment if you have no faith?

 

I watch a lot of Judge Judy.

Hmm... let's take the "no" and the "don't" out of those 2 questions. Ahh there we go. Much better. Now it fits with history better too.

I saw this while watching the debate....frustrating to say the least.

Good thing he doesn't have anything to say about it...

Most studies conclude, in America, people won't elect an Atheist president, even if they agreed with them completely. It's pretty sad.

"How can I trust you with power if you don't pray?"

How can I trust you with power if you pray instead of actually getting things done?

"Convinced that religious liberty must, most assuredly, be built into the structural frame of the new [state] government, Jefferson proposed this language [for the new Virginia constitution]: "All persons shall have full and free liberty of religious opinion; nor shall any be compelled to frequent or maintain any religious institution": freedom for religion, but also freedom from religion. (Edwin S. Gaustad, Faith of Our Fathers: Religion and the New Nation, San Francisco: Harper & Row, 1987, p. 38. Jefferson proposed his language in 1776.)"

 

The underline and bold are mine.  If they had it figured out then, what in the hell happened?

Yes, let's have an adulterer instead.

Yes. I wonder if he prayed before he betrayed.
