    Bradley Byrne Says "Every Word" of Bible is True

    This story isn't from Iran, it's from Alabama. Welcome to theocracy in America, 2010.

    Bradley Byrne says 'every word' of Bible is true | Breaking News from The Huntsville Times - al.com

    HUNTSVILLE, AL - "I believe the Bible is true," Republican gubernatorial candidate Bradley Byrne said here Wednesday. "Every word of it."

    Byrne's testimony came as he tried to clarify an earlier statement seized on by his opponents for the GOP nomination.

    Byrne had been quoted in the Mobile Press-Register in November as saying, "I believe there are parts of the Bible that are meant to be literally true and parts that are not."

    That quote has followed him, including to his appearance at a Piggly Wiggly grocery store in New Hope, where Byrne came to announce his first big endorsement this year, from the Alabama Retail Association.

    When notice of the press conference was posted on al.com Wednesday morning, several posters said things similar to this:

    "Just got a call from a person at my Church letting me know about this," said uafan1198. "My family will not be shopping at Ragland Piggly Wiggly stores anymore or anything else they own.... I don't shop at places that think it is OK to stand next to people who don't believe the Bible is all true."

    Byrne said at Piggly Wiggly that he had been misquoted. The report has been used by his opponents in anonymous attacks since November, Byrne added.
    I don't even have words for how breathtakingly stupid and ridiculous this is.

    ... said the woman that had a young child's understanding of the bible for several decades, and clung to it for way too long, but then got mad at everyone else but herself for not seeing the obvious much much sooner.

    Since when does a potential politician having religious beliefs that differ from yours = "theocracy"?

    Is he saying that he believes the entire bible is true and will thus pass laws requiring everyone else to agree? No.

    Is he saying that he believes the entire bible is true and will thus pass laws requiring everyone else to follow its rules? No.
    People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

    The theocracy notion was rather ridiculous

    The breath takingly stupid and ridiculous comment however was pretty spot on.

    I really wish we wouldn't get wrapped up in religion and such for politics. It's not important. Political platform and plans once in office are important.

    right...but bible thumpers (not necessarily christians) don't seem to think there should be any separation.

    Because I think its breathtakingly stupid and ridiculous to boycott a store or a politician for stating what is not an uncommon view of many biblical scholars....that EVERYTHING in the bible is 100% factual in its most literalistic sense.

    Oh, and I disagree about it being so bad that religion in some ways is tied with politics. Religion is essentially a form of philosophy, of way of thinking and believing one should live. I would have no problem with a person voting or a politician basing his political views on the teachings of Aristotle, Similarly I have no issue with them doing it based off the teachings of the bible.

    My issue would be when they start to attempt to force me in my private life to follow those teachings or not express my own beliefs...be it the philosophies of ancient Greece of the teachings of the Christians.
