    I don't even have words for how breathtakingly stupid and ridiculous this is.
    I'm looking for a problem but I don't seem to be seeing it.

    Politicians should be people who do not believe in zombies, dragons and demons who dwell in the dark. Those superstitions should be kept as far from politics as possible. The fact that he plainly states his belief in all these things makes me more than iffy about how it will affect his leadership. At the end of the day it's up to his constituents to decide but to believe that a person's 'beliefs' do not affect his work is pure naivety considering the track record of such people in our political arena.
    Almost all of our politicians believe in at least some of that. If it effects his job, then it is a problem, but just believing that is not in itself a problem.

    I think the point is that it was so dumb for an article to be written about it. It wasn't worth the time or space.

    That, and, when major news sources like MSNBC, CNN, or ABC is not picking it up and running with it to make christians look bad(and FAILING at it), then the problem meter isn't just "zilch", but in the negatives!

    Believing in some of it is not the same as believing every word of it. The degree of belief is essential in determining how much influence a person's religion will have on their political career. The stronger the belief, the more influence in my opinion. I don't know about before my lifetime but during it, the more faith a politician has, the more influence his faith has on his politics.

    When you have people who believe that there is modern day science in a book written 2,000 years ago and these people ignore the last 300 years of scientific progress in every field from geology to nuclear physics, that to me is a problem which I am not truly affected by. When these same people are the ones who want to run my country that to me is a serious problem which I will be affected by.

    I think you are not understanding that this person is a radical. He's no different than an extremist Muslim who believes every word in the Qur'an can be applied to modern day life.

    1st off, Kudos to Byrne for having the courage to ignore the hatueys and catzes and Haruno's of the world to actually stand up and not play politics, and tell people what he really thinks

    I was under the impression that, a litmus test for any christian is that they do believe the bible, the whole bible, the whole message.

    Now, whether it's literal, or figurative, or any other interpretative stance on "the truth", is totally up to the individual. (for example, just look at the revelations camps in christianity. Some say the end is coming, some say it happened ~1900 years ago, but they still believe it is true)

    You don't believe that, do you? How many abortion clinics has this guy bombed?

    Tell you what, if you call the FBI on this guy and tell them you think this guy is an extremist and he might go shoot some poor atheist, then I'll believe this. Otherwise, you're blowholing your stressful day on some random media victim.

    I think you're being very overdramatic here. He's not saying that we have to do every single thing that the bible says exactly the way it says it. He's simply saying that nothing in the bible is a lie. When you put it that way, there are probably 1.5 billion people who would agree, few of whom I would consider radicals.

    Not in the least. If every word is true, which words?
