Surely not at the founding, when human beings were routinely raped, beaten, murdered and traded as property. Surely not during the Civil War, when over half a million Americans were killed over the issue of human bondage. Surely not after the Civil War, when Native Americans were slaughtered by the hundreds of thousands. Surely not during the age of the Robber Barons, when children worked cruel hours in filthy factories, the American west was a region of mass lawlessness, drinking and prostitution and the railroads made slaves out of Chinese immigrants.

And even before FDR ruined everything with his New Deal and repeal of Prohibition, you had a murderous domestic terrorist organization roaming the countryside, Jim Crow, mass poverty and illiteracy, the rise of organized crime, etc.

Yes, but children could stay pray to God in schools so these eras were all Christian.

Yes, but children could stay still pray to God in schools so these eras were all Christian.

Rick Perry praying for America gone astray, oh...*gag*

Honest to God, I wish Jesus (a.s.) would come back right now, today, right this minute so we could see what he has to say about all this...this...I don't even know what to call it, but the bright lights, the cameras, the fancy suits... I wonder how many poor people they could've clothed & fed for the amount of money they spent to put on that hater freakshow? I wonder how many months of an ill person's meds one of Perry's suits would buy?

Oh, and Gov. Perry? There are plenty of us believers out here who haven't forgotten a damned thing, but we know we don't count since we're not Christian, you condescending, vainglorious, self-righteous &^%#$@#!

"As a nation, we have forgotten who made us, who protects us, who blesses us, and for that we cry out for your forgiveness. We pray for our nation’s leaders, for parents, for pastors, for generals, for governors, that you would inspire them.”

Whaddya mean by "we"? You can't say the poor, bankrupt homeowners, and the unemployed are all on their own and still complain about how "we" have forgotten your god.

It never ceases to amaze me just how much the election of a black man with an African name as POTUS has totally unhinged the GOP and the American right.

I have to ask whether we ever truly followed Christian ideals too. This is typical Perry. I wonder if he blames God when he inevitably loses.

There aren't any well-defined "Christian ideals" (let's not pretend all that love commandments and other feel-good hippie stuff is exactly that - it has always been interpreted in whatever ways deemed necessary for the moment, and the Bible morality is contradictory in any case).

I've been saying the exact same thing (in no less eloquent a way!) for years, and now some upstart Justice has to go steal my saying?

Hmm, he's dead? I guess he won't mind my non-attribution, then?

But seriously, for someone who is firmly committed to good government and good religion, that quote is flawless.

That's a great quote.
