  1. Mentioning God? The Republicans god is MONEY, as their billionaire altar boys scurry around….
    Those who would destroy Social Security & voucher Medicare to death, and who readily admit they “don’t care about the very poor” should stop, remember, and take to heart the words “Whatsoever you do for the least of these – you do for me”.
    Our Founding Fathers wisely realized that politics, secular power, and religion do not mix.
    And if they join, they bring out the worst in each other , and that ultimately they would destroy each other, and us in the process.

  2. HA! i love the comment about the atheist schism…

    “Seems the non-believers cannot agree on what to not believe in…”

    Thats GOLD!
