Maybe Bush not quite as "faith-based" as he would have us think?

    Can't open up crooks and liars. Maybe it's banned in Canada

    With the limits on birth control devices and information attached to foreign aid, especially in places like Africa, Bush may be giving more than lip service to the far right. And until Falwell and Robertson start stoning their female congregants and allowing honor rapes, I'm not willing to to allow the juxtaposition of American evangelicals and Muslim extremists to be anything more than a biased authors' demagaugery.

    Sounds some Republicans treat Christians the way the rest of you treat them -- with disdain. Do you think the GOP using Christians to get elected, then treat them with disdain, is any different from the way Democrats treat African-Americans?

    Hear, hear...And I actually would like to think that those of you who try to equate extremists Muslims with Christians in the U.S. don't really believe what you're saying. It's only another way for you to get your digs in against Christians.

    Who's digging at Christians?

    Those Bible thumpers don't represent Christian religion any more than Fredo and his Gang of Thugs represent conservatism.

    That's your way to deal with someone who disagrees with you? Dismiss it, rather than discuss it?
    What you call illogical, some might call very ironic.

    I'm going to go out on a limb and suggest that you probably treat anyone with religious faith with cynicism and disdain.

    Exactly. Bush's warmongering (among other things) does represent the brand of Christianity I follow in any way, shape or form.

    And that's why you need to go to the logic thread.

    JR dislikes hypocrites.
    Some Christians are hypocrites.
    Therefore, JR dislikes Christians.
