Ted Cruz Appears With Anti-Gay Hate Group American Family Association, Openly Advocates Theocracy

The GOP is now the Theocratic Party

Notice that Cruz refers to non-evangelicals as "unbelievers," as if they didn't believe in God at all. He sees himself as the leader by divine right of a fundamentalist fiefdom. Other people aren't even fully people to him.

The US Navy traditionally runs a church service pennant over the US flag while services are in session. They currently have separate flags for jewish and xian services. It's the only pennant that ever flies above the ensign.

re: #78 SoCaroLion Where the fuck did anyone say that? (Bill Maher doesn't count, since he didn't write this post.) You really think that's the opinion of many people here? There are Jews, Christians, Muslims, Atheists, etc, on this blog ...

re: #420 The Vicious Babushka Yeah, that was unnecessary, I agree. But the Dersh has a disturbing history of attacking sex abuse victims that goes way beyond his role as a defense attorney.

“Tax the atheists who don’t go to church”
7/07/12 7:06:26 am
I think it's just a matter of time until the US experiments (however briefly) with being a de-facto conservative Christian theocracy. Probably just long enough for the Christian-Soldier-In-Chief to lob a few nukes into Iran and the rest of the ...

Santorum: JFK’s Speech on Separation of Church and State Makes Me Want to Puke

2/26/12 9:07:56 pm
I don't understand how people like him can claim to be a strict constitutionalist? Ricky is basically saying that the Federalists Papers, Jefferson, Franklin, Locke and lets throw in Joseph Priestly, and Roger Williams to boot, folks who directly and ...

Rick Santorum’s Crazed Attack on Prenatal Screening

2/20/12 8:51:33 am
Hey Rick. Prenatal screening encourages abortion?! Pretty big jump in logic there. How about prenatal screening enabling early medical treatment before birth? How about prenatal screening preparing new parents for a challenged baby before its born? How about letting parents ...
