World View redux

Gee, thanks for putting words in my mouth, knocking me for not giving Rick’s “world view” a second glance, and then doing that yourself. I think we both understand his world view and know too many people who share it, and we both reject it.
Our constitution very blatantly states there can never be a religious test for holding office. It seems clear that Rick would prefer that their were.
You’re right, the primaries are boring, and of course the media follows them religiously, because that is what they do. So the country thinks that the tiny sliver of the populace that has voted in the primaries represent far more than they really do.
what I find interesting is something my sister, who isn’t very religious, noticed. All these right wing politicians who are constantly touting their Christian values and beliefs—you rarely if ever hear them quote Christ or talk about what they are doing in their lives to try and follow Christ more closely. They invoke Christianity all the time, and actually quote the source as rarely as they quote or point to the last Republican president. Maybe Jesus just doesn’t have the right sound bites for them.

About JP

We're two guys who met in college, in 1980. We've stayed in touch, and like to talk politics, current events, music and religion. JP is nore liberal than Sid, but not in every way. We figure that dialogue stimulates ideas, moderates perspective, and is in general friendly. These are things we need badly in these dangerous times. The blog name is taken from a song by Bruce Cockburn.
