The world should and must hold governments to a different standard than individuals. Whether they are secular or religious, Muslim or Christian or Hindu or officially atheistic or anything else, governments have solemn obligations to protect the human rights of all citizens, no matter what religions they believe or don’t believe.

Back in the days when I was a Rush Limbaugh listener, I hated Hillary Clinton.  I am now humbled by my ignorance.

Yeah, you do have a right to challenge it. A colleague told me one of my talks offended him. I said, ‘Your offense means nothing to me.’ Nor should it. If you want to provide reasons and evidence then you can sit at the adult table and we can talk about that. But just ‘I’m offended’ carries no legitimacy… As long as people remain silent, this juggernaut will continue. There has to come a point in the discourse when we just don’t allow certain claims to be made… It’s not about a right to believe—believe whatever you want. It’s about the truth or falsity of a belief and about a process that will lead you to the truth or not. Clutch your Bible? Sit at the children’s table.

It is time to stop with the old Chuck Norris jokes, and start new ones pointing out how foolish he actually is.  ~ Steve

NEWSFLASH: Santorum really doesn’t believe in the separation of church and state. No, really, he actually said that.

sorrowsongs:

Responding to comments he made last October on the issue, Santorum said on ‘This Week,’

“I don’t believe in an America where the separation of church and state are absolute,” he told ‘This Week’ host George Stephanopoulos. “The idea that the church can have no influence or no involvement in the operation of the state is absolutely antithetical to the objectives and vision of our country…to say that people of faith have no role in the public square? You bet that makes me want to throw up.”

As if that wasn’t bad enough to anyone not desiring of theocracy, he then said on ‘Meet the Press’ that separation of church and state was “not the founders’ vision.” 

Really? Not the founders vision? Are we even reading the same texts/talking about the same people? I know its dangerous to just quote one thing and have it be a broad, overreaching generalization of everything that person stood for, but since the religious right constantly misquote the Founding Fathers to make them seem more sympathetic to Christianity and the convergence of church and state, here is a good example of what Thomas Jefferson really said:

I have examined all the known superstitions of the world, and I do not find in our particular superstition of Christianity one redeeming feature. They are all alike founded on fables and mythology. Millions of innocent men, women and children, since the introduction of Christianity, have been burnt, tortured, fined and imprisoned. What has been the effect of this coercion? To make one half the world fools and the other half hypocrites; to support roguery and error all over the earth.

The full article on Santorum’s comments can be found here.

This has been pointed out before, but I don’t feel that it can be said enough.
