Another Reason To Be Wary Of rEpublicans...

Just one more reason to turn and run as fast as possible AWAY from the rEpublican pArty and its neo-con fundamentalist base.

TPM - Casey Michel September 20, 2012, 3:13 PM - In a conference call with fellow evangelicals earlier this week, Texas Gov. Rick Perry (R) shared his thoughts on the origins of the constitutionally mandated separation of church and state. Rather than tracing the idea to the nation’s founders, Perry warned of a more nefarious source: Satan.

“Satan runs across the world with his doubt and with his untruths and what have you and one of the untruths out there that is driven is that people of faith should not be involved in the public arena,” Perry said during the call on Tuesday, organized by the Rev. Rick Scarborough.

Perry said the separation of religious and civic institutions in the U.S. began with a “narrative” that first took root in the 1960s.

“Somehow or another there’s this, ya know, steel wall, this iron curtain or whatever you want to call it between the church and people of faith and this separation of church and state is just false on its face,” the governor said. “We have a biblical responsibility to be involved in the public arena proclaiming God’s truth.”

“You think about this spiritual warfare that’s going on and … going strong as President Obama and his cronies in Washington continue their efforts to remove any trace of religion from American life,” Perry said on the call. “And it falls on us, I mean, we truly are Christian warriors, Christian soldiers, and for us as Americans to stand our ground and to firmly send a message to Washington that our nation is about more than just some secular laws.”

  2. I get a kick out of fellows like Perry. They constantly talk about our country being a nation that was founded on Judeo-Christian principles and it's obvious that they've never even read so much as a paragraph of Jefferson, Madison, Paine, Franklin, or Adams. The fact of the matter is that none of these guys were hard-core Christians and many of them even made fun of the Bible. They all wanted this country to be a secular nation with, yes, religious liberty but with none of that religiosity infused into politics. Perry is an absolute embarrassment, I think.

    1. An absolute embarrassment for sure. The Gods forbid if ever he should be in a position of national power. This dude, along with his like minded neo-con fundies represent real danger.

      Break, Sarah Palin just popped up on the tube, time for some LAUGHS!!!
