39. This is what I feared from the first time I saw Obama.
I couldn't bring myself to vote for him....I voted for Nader. It's the damn religious thing. What is it about Americans and their fanatical adherence to ignorance and superstition and hatred and intolerance in the name of Jesus?
Somebody has to say it...and often...and loudly...we will never have justice and equality in this country as long as our politicians pander to religion in general...christian religion in particular.
I am so sorry to have been right about Obama. I have wanted to believe my friends who said they all play this game to win elections. But early on I saw a quality that disturbed me in Barack Obama: the potential for religious demagoguery that I think is dangerous in this country at this time more than any other. This has sent a deep chill thru my newly quickened optimism.
