53. Many posts here are missing a couple of very important points
1. The OP is SICK of this stupid JerryFalwellJamesDobsonPatRobertson brand of religion being publically foisted off on America as a whole -- and funded by the White House to do so -- very loudly and repeatedly by the MSM and AM Talk/Hate radio. As if we actually ARE a christian nation of the JerryFalwellJamesDobsonPatRobertson persuasion. As if Americans actually all DO believe that way.

2. You christians who took offense at the OP's statements are TOTALLY missing the point that no matter how righteous and holy you yourself are, YOU are being painted with the JerryFalwellJamesDobsonPatRobertson brush because YOUR brand of holy christianity isn't speaking out against the other. If YOU and your kind don't rise up as one and publically, loudly denounce JerryFalwellJamesDobsonPatRobertson religion and the White House's support of it, you can't then come to the OP and whine about how unfair her or his sentiments are to YOU and YOUR kind of christianity.
