    Well, yeah, but just not Lynchburg, Tennessee. :P

    I admit to not watching the whole thing. The hypocrisy in religion kills me. “This country was founded on the Bible, so we can’t have anyone in office who doesn’t believe in the Bible.”

    FIRST OF ALL, this country was founded on FREEDOM – freedom of religion and freedom FROM religious persecution.


    “We can’t have Hillary in office, she stood by her husband while he did those things (Monica?) while he was in office, so who knows what she’ll do while she’s in office?”

    If things had turned out differently and Hillary had divorced Bill, they’d say they couldn’t vote for her because divorce is against the Bible.

    Huckabee’s not going to win, but instead of taking it as a sign that maybe God doesn’t want Huckabee in office (because God is ALL ABOUT U.S. POLITICS, YOU KNOW!) they’ll blame it on the influence of the Devil.

    Don’t even get me started. ;)

    I think the equivalent of this kind of thinking probably exists in many countries…but I never meet people like that here in my bubble, so it’s easy for me to shrug it off and not realize just how many of them there are in this country (especially in the south).

    I grew up in Arkansas literally surrounded by people just like this. Anita is right, there are MANY of them out there. Kinda scary…makes me wanna vote, real bad. :)

    Michelle: Yes, definitely not Tennessee.

    (And oh, whole point of the entry was to get someone started. So by all means, please do!)

    anita: I am certain there exist people like this in other countries, but here’s the difference that bothers me (and makes things a lot more scary). While those people just live in their own bubbles of ignorance, these people vote for clowns that believe it’s their God-given right to randomly butt into the affairs of other countries.

    Kevin: Please do!
