I've never had a problem with actual conservatives ... But I've got a big problem with Jesusland. If you want to worship the ghost of a jew from the Roman Empire, that's cool. Enjoy it! But when you people and your bizarre mystery cult claim the goddamned president as your prime convert who rules by the voices in his head, I call bullshit.Now, here is Barack Obama on his own religious practice:
"Michelle and I have not only benefited from our prayer life, but I think the girls have too," the president told [Barbara] Walters. "We say grace before we eat dinner every night. We take turns."... When asked if he prays himself, the president said: "I do. Every night." He also says that he reads the Bible.Why does the Left not castigate and ridicule Obama for his Christianity? Isn't this a ridiculously obvious double standard?
Actually, I don't think it is a double standard. I think the atheist Left hates George W. Bush and cuts Obama slack for a very simple reason that is entirely consistent. They hate (or, rather, feel intellectually superior to) Christians. So they hate George W. Bush, because he is one. But they just don't think Obama is sincere or honest in what he's saying here to Barbara Walters (of all people). They see it for what it is: a cynical political ploy, designed to help him move back to the center politically. They realize Obama doesn't mean what he's saying. George W. Bush actually meant it when he professed his faith.
