You're arguing against an argument that I haven't made. I think that's called straw-man fallacy.
The fact that others may be guilty of this special pleading has nothing to do with the argument that I made. It seems to me like, perhaps you don't want to address my arguments and instead are trying distract attention away from that.
And who was it that brought up race here?
Oh that would be you.
All prayers are answered but sadly, sometimes the answer is now
I choose not to bury my head in the sand like you apparently like to do regarding the separation of church and state. Being a blind follower is hardly what I'd consider a "smart thing to do" But hey, lot's of the religious right folks do like to do that..And since he has freedom of speech on his side that would be the smartest thing you could do.
"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."
No where in there does it state that politicians cannot talk about religion or ask the people they represent to pray.

Regardless, to suggest that he can't comment on it, is in my opinion, unfounded. I think they have the right to comment on whatever they want.
