    Saw this video and thought it was funny.



    I certainly do not think policy should be based on religious thought, but for those that do it seems at least some policies are contrary to Christian ideas.

    They left only one thing off. "For I say unto you, the two greatest commandments are "Have fear and hatred in your heart." and "Outlaw abortion:" "All the law and all the prophets hang on these two."

    Or adultery and lying are wrong, except when done by a politician you like.

    I am not sure how this comment is relevant. I imagine that misconstruction of religipus principles fall on both sides of the aisle.

    This fact hardly alleviates internal inconsistencies or makes them any less humorous.

    Both sides of the aisle have problems, the Democrats tend to be more religiously abrasive. An interesting compaison is between Obama's top 20 quotes about Islam and his top 20 quotes about the Bible and Jesus

    I'm not going to spend time on all 40. The first was enough to show that the quote was entirely out of context and some of the rest clear statements of historical fact:

    The future must not belong to those who target Coptic Christians in Egypt — it must be claimed by those in Tahrir Square who chanted, “Muslims, Christians, we are one.” The future must not belong to those who bully women — it must be shaped by girls who go to school, and those who stand for a world where our daughters can live their dreams just like our sons.


    The future must not belong to those corrupt few who steal a country’s resources — it must be won by the students and entrepreneurs, the workers and business owners who seek a broader prosperity for all people. Those are the women and men that America stands with; theirs is the vision we will support.


    The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam. But to be credible, those who condemn that slander must also condemn the hate we see in the images of Jesus Christ that are desecrated, or churches that are destroyed, or the Holocaust that is denied.


    Let us condemn incitement against Sufi Muslims and Shiite pilgrims. It’s time to heed the words of Gandhi: “Intolerance is itself a form of violence and an obstacle to the growth of a true democratic spirit.” Together, we must work towards a world where we are strengthened by our differences, and not defined by them. That is what America embodies, that’s the vision we will support.
