October 18, 2011: "How can you have judgment if you have no faith? How can I trust you with power if you don't pray?" -- Newt Gingrich, Republican presidenti...
The British press would have a field day if a politician in the UK made comments like that. I'm glad that here at least religious politicians are marginalised and placed in the same 'extreme' (a little harsh) category as the far right, far left and Monster Raving Loony party candidates.
@Holland, that is a damn good question: Why is there a complete absence of scientists running for office? Maybe because they're too ethical in general. To be a politician, I'm sure one would have to conform in some ways and go against their own personal morals just to get anything done. A politician who would actually stay 100% true to themselves, who truly wants to do the right thing for all, would probably be chewed up and spit out before they could get very far. That's really the big problem with our political atmosphere. You gotta play along to a certain point or you're toast. I would love to see some great scientific minds with a belief in fairness for all, run for President, but I guess they're just not political types.
"... I dont want to live on this planet anymore."
Featured to showcase how insane these people are.
Hey Newt and other GOP candidates, how about gaining judgement through rationality and experience?
Instead, I guess they would rather gain their "good" judgement from a god, as Richard Dawkins stated, which is "jealous and proud of it; a petty, unjust, unforgiving control-freak; a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser; a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomaniacal, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bully."
Let's not forget his talents as financial officer:
He amassed and still carries HUGE credit card debt (hundreds of thousands of dollars) buying jewelry for his present "bow at my feet" wife. This imbecile was speaker of the house for years. Why is it no wonder intelligent citizens of America no longer have confidence in ANY of the douche bags in D.C.?
Judge not, lest ye be judged.
