Guess the right person or group of persons for the following quotes:
A. This person told an evangelical megachurch in South Carolina about how he “accepted Jesus Christ in [his] life,” spoke of working toward the “Kingdom of God” and concluded by saying, “I can be an instrument of God they same way all of you are.”
B. This person told a TV network: “Well, first of all, I believe in an almighty God, and I believe that all the world, whether they be Muslim, Christian, or any other religion, prays to the same God. That’s what I believe.”
C. This group of people made no explicit reference to faith or religion in a recent event on a cable news network.
A. Barack Obama – It’s funny how Democratic politicians can climb into pulpits almost every Sunday and flat out preach – quote scripture and call for a response – and no one really bats an eye. But when a Republican mentions their faith playing a role in their decision making while on the campaign trail, you’d would have thought he called for an end to elections and the appointment of a Pope/President.
Why is that? Is it simply a double standard? Do people believe that the Democrat candidate is simply lying or pandering to an audience? Why are Democratic politicians not called on their religious language, especially while campaigning from a pulpit?
B. President Bush, the evil neo-con, Muslim-hatin’, crazy-Christianist, told Al Arabiya that he believes all religions pray to the same God. I believe he is completely wrong, the law of non-contridiction demonstrates that, but the only real attention this received was from Christian outlets for disagreeing with him. The MSM basically stayed away from this like they avoided Obama’s sermon.
C. The GOP Presidential candidates did not mention anything explicitly religious during the entire MSNBC debate.
Who is it that wants to establish a Christian nation, persecute gays, stop scientific research and revert back to the Puritan days? Incidentally, I don’t think either party wants to do that, but I know some who will make that claim about the party that spent absolutely 0% of their debate discussing faith.
