How did the VP debate get RickRolled and I not know about it
Yikes. Not so hot. Damn gotcha media.

^ So what? I don't know what her faith has to do with anything about her abilities to be a VP. Although, I have spent some time in a Pentecostal church and those people are indeed SCARY.
And yet you think Obama is a terrorist just because he happens to be Muslim.
It shows that she's downright retarded.
There, I said it.
I was going to try and word this in a more subtle fashion, but I don't care anymore. A fundamentalist Christian that believes Jesus will come back in her life time potentially having that kind of power is a tad frightening, and I think many sane Christians would agree.
prove to me that he isnt.
Well, he did get sworn in on the Koran after all.
The people who are still going around saying things like "What does a person's faith have to do with their ability to lead??" have to get the fuck with it. Seriously. America is not a theocracy. People with strict, immovable religious beliefs have CLEARLY divided goals. They don't want to do what's best for America here and now... In fact, "here and now" isn't even how they view the world! Their very perceptual abilities hinge on their view of the world through a black and white lens provided by outdated and dangerous modes of faith. They aren't even living in the same world as the rest of us! They believe that they are on a mission from God to make America reflect some entirely fabricated reality in their heads... How can that POSSIBLY not be a relevant issue when they're trying to lead the country?
Jesus fucking Christ. JFDASkf.l sofidsa[dfs
That is a bunch of shit. There have been many presidents and other government leaders who have had faith in their God, yet kept that separate from their political duties. One could argue the other side and say that if an Atheist or Agnostic became president or was elected into an office of high power could do the same - not act for what his best for America.
And, that is coming from an Agnostic, myself.
I'd have more trust in someone who doesn't have a magical friend whispering ideas into his ear.
If you consider a political leader who has religious beliefs to be magical and whispering in his or her ear, who is to say that the non-believer doesn't have another form of magic whispering in his or her ears?
Yes, that magic being reason and common sense.
- I don't want a retard for president.
- Who's to say that a smart person isn't also retarded?
If you are replying to me.... what?
Exactly, as irrational as religion can be, there are thousands of other forms or mysticism or ways to be irrational (I also think you can be intelligent in every single way, except for the fact that you believe in god). At least with religious people you have a book you can look to for reference on what they believe.
Religion doesn't change my "trust" in someone one way or the other. It's based on other factors.
(This is really not speaking about Sarah Palin. I think she's pretty fucking stupid, but even while being dumb she's right about more things than a smart evil collectivist like Obama.)
^ I agree with much what you said there.
Sorry, you guys misread my statement. I'm saying he does happen to be a Muslim. In all honesty, he is either Muslim (less likely) or atheist (more likely) but realizes you have to play it Christian to move up in U.S. politics. But just because he might be a Muslim doesn't make him a terrorist, as McPalin are trying to insinuate. Not that it would hurt his stock with me..
He might have meant prove that he isn't a terrorist.
Also, is it just me or has he come out many times stating that he is in fact NOT a Muslim? Even if he were a Muslim, do we live in such a close minded country that we're only going to allow Christian people into office? If you don't like him, at least leave his religion out of it.
I think we're moving in the right direction, but in all honesty it'll be a while before we get there. I'm just happy we're willing to put a black into the office, regardless of my beefs with his policies.
I sort of agree with this. Having a religious president isn't a bad thing by any means, but when you have someone like Sarah Palin on the ticket, who denies evolution and clearly allows her religious beliefs to dictate policy, then I think you have to be a little bit worried about her.
So it's not the fact that she's religious, but the fact that her religious beliefs seem to be leading her to make wacky judgements.
She doesn't deny evolution. (This is basically akin to "OBAMA WAS SWORN IN ON THE KORAN!!".)
LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL
Being a young earth creationist kinda does say she does. Otherwise, she looks even more retarded.
yuk yuk yuk yuk
I'm pretty sure she thinks evolution is a load of BS. Having said that, the rumors that she wanted Creationism taught alongside evolution in schools are indeed completely false, and about equally as bad as the Obama-muslim BS.
There's no evidence that she's a young earth creationist.
"OBAMA IZ MUZLIM!!"
"I watched her....uhhh....watched her slowly anddddd.....I....as she developed maturity"

WTF. Isn't secession treasonous? Perhaps Palin is the Alaskachurian Candidate.
Did you just delete your post and then repost it?
Yeah, I was doing some experimenting. Mainly, with recreational drugs.
Typical Obama supporter.
Would not surprise.
Sarah Palin, warmly greeted by the Joe-Sixpack hockey fans:
Yes, I know it's in two threads now, but it applies here, too.
nice. good find.
Well, if true, then according to SAT scores I'm only 1.75 times as smart as Sarah Palin. I was guessing 2+.
You got 1470 on your SATs?
That's about what I got, ignoring the writing score.
