I don't know enough about her to know one way or the other. It does amuse me that she equates the Quran and Communist Manifesto together though given Islam's past relationship with Communism is similiar to Christianity's.

No, she is serious. She has been part of the religious right circle for a long time now. Even before her big coming out after Obama was elected, my Dominionist religious right mother in-law had seen her speak at a church and talked about her sometimes.
Apparently Victoria's parents are both born again extreme fundamentalists who brought Victoria up in a very fundamental atmosphere. She kind of got away from it for a little while but eventually got back into it several years ago.

Thanksgiving and Christmas must be a real hoot at your place...

Am I the only one bothered by the fact that to be elected president you must (at least claim to) believe in Bronze Age mythologies?

Absolutely. Better to have a competent atheist in charge than an incompetent Christian or whatever.

A.k.a., her comedy career dried up. Fairly typical showbiz bio. Ideology is not the prime motivator of a, to put it crudely, attention whore. I question the sincerety of this type. They don't care what they have to say or do as long as they can draw a crowd. See also: Stephen Baldwin, Kirk Cameron, Dennis Miller, etc.

No commands in the Bible for the government to support the poor. No commands in the Bible for the government at all. God speaks to Israel, the church (believers) and the individual soul.

She's either advocating a literally immoral government, or Anarchism. Can't tell which.

Vickie is not up on Roman society either. In Jesus's time, the government did routinely pass out bread and sometimes other goodies to the poor. Most of the emperors, drunken pagans though they were, had enough sense to keep the poor on their side. They didn't do this because they wanted to be nice, they did it to forestall a revolution when they knew there was one always brewing.

Well golly jeeps Vick! At least Obama didn't have the Bush's Reverend Haggard, the meth-addicted Reverend who preached against homosexuality and then got caught screwing guys!

Ya have to laugh or you'll cry.

In Kirk Cameron's case, his religious views caused massive issues on the set of Growing Pains. Even back then, he was a self-righteous prick.

In 1986, at a party hosted by a very good friend, I met Victoria.
It was the day after the night she had appeared on the Tonight show with Johnny Carson.
She had done a bit with Johnny on the show and told me that Lorne had watched the show, and, effectively, that was her audition.
I told her, as she was standing there, she made it.
The skit was so stupid; it was cute.
Johnny enjoyed guessing whom someone was attempting to imitate, so she gave him the opportunity.
His first guess was something like Mae West, to which she said, "no".
He continued for another 4-5 guesses and, finally, said, "I don't know", and asked who it was.
She said that she had made up the person/voice.
Johnny "made" her with the rolling of his eyes, his pregnant pause, etc., as that was Johnny's forte.

Obviously, she got the gig.

My opinion, from our conversation, was that she was not very bright and her personality was the same as all have seen displayed.

Hey Lizards!

So has anything changed today?

I made a mistake and picked-up a movie based on the Left Behind books--Kirk Cameron was the lead. I watched it anyway.

What a bizarre crock of shit. Louis Gosset Jr was in it too with some other actors I recognized. I was kind of scary.

There is no such thing as a dirty word. Nor is there a word so powerful, that it's going to send the listener to a lake of fire upon hearing it.

Never mind, I"m in the WRONG thread.

That was all just lies and slander. Ted Haggard is completely heterosexual!
