<i>“We must teach Christians that they should vote for political candidates that follow the biblical positions on the political issues. . . . The major political issues that you should teach the biblical positions on are abortion, homosexuality, capital punishment, income tax of citizens, affirmative action, right to bear arms, and public school prayer. . . . I do not teach people to become Republicans, even though I am a Republican. I do not teach people to become a Democrat. I teach them to know and understand the issues at large. And I know they’re going to do the right thing in the voting booth. We want to be very, very careful as Christians not to ‘cancel out our salvation’ as we enter into the voting booth. Many Christians are doing that. They’re praising God on Sundays, then on election Tuesdays, they are ‘canceling out their salvation’ because they are siding with the enemy, with the devil. . . . [Being homosexual] is an abomination, something so nasty and disgusting that it makes God want to vomit.”</i>
Um, this is democracy and freedom. It’s why we have a First Amendment, and the “horrible” things he says are part of his way of life. Maybe he’s ridiculous and crazy, but freedom of speech is never needed to protect speech that everyone likes.
I didn’t see where Jaxian said this guy shouldn’t be able to say this stuff. I only saw Jaxian mention these points: this guy is a) loony, b) crazy, c) very, very scary and d) in an appointed office affecting people who do not share his rather disturbing views on how religion should affect politics, and lament that the facts are not very comforting when put together.
But if Jaxian actually meant to take the extra step and say that because this guy is fucking insane he either should not be allowed to hold office or should not even be able to voice his insanity, then, well, yeah, you’re right, he’s a fool who should <strike>have his mouth stitched shut by federal agents</strike> think a little more about the first ammendment.
And God spake to Noah: Thou who art jacking off to anthropomorphic skunks fucking anthropomorphic coyotes with either an equal, or greater amount of penises shall be placed inside thine holy kiln, and purified.
