    So you're fine with Obama being considered a Muslim Kenyan?

    a fundamental lack of understanding the first amendment.

    If these guys had said that Obama must defend America's 1st Amendment values they would have had my and a lot of other peoples support.

    I don't believe that this will win many elections for them.

    BTW: if anyone can point out where it says in the U.S. Constitution that defending Christian values is the presidents job, I'd like to see it.

    This sounds like a bunch of far right religious malarkey to me.




    "Better days are coming." ~ But not for today's out of touch, running out of time, GOP

    So you read this article which included this statement:

    Cruz highlighted what he called failures in the Obama administration that allowed attacks on Christians abroad, particularly in the escalating violence across Iraq.

    "Christians are being persecuted in stunning numbers. They are being stoned. They are being tortured," Cruz said, calling for Obama to stand up for Christians in prison in Iran and Sudan. "We need leadership in America."
    And you think it is 'malarkey.'

    So those people who came here to escape religious persecution should have stayed at home. Groovy.

    And if you are Obama, you needs George Stephanopalous to remind you what your religion is:

We are defending religious freedoms for all, but not all religious freedoms should be defended if those religious views involve killing or imprisoning people for reasons that violate values that are more important to us as a nation.
    I really think they were calling for Christian values to be INCLUDED. Maybe you should reread the OP.
