McCain/Palin brings Christianity front and center, and it is disgusting

When McCain picked Palin as a running mate, he linked his campaign to Christianity. With Christianity comes a truckload of racism, homophobia, anger, hatred, perversion, delusion and craziness which America would be much better off without. How crazy does it get? This article contains a recent invocation from a campaign event:

McCain shies away from recent days’ attacks

The invocation, given by Rev. Arnold Conrad:

“I would also pray, Lord, that your reputation is involved in all that happens between now and November, because there are millions of people around this world praying to their god — whether it’s Hindu, Buddha, Allah — that his opponent wins, for a variety of reasons,” Conrad said.

“And Lord, I pray that you would guard your own reputation, because they’re going to think that their god is bigger than you, if that happens. So I pray that you will step forward and honor your own name with all that happens between now and Election Day,” he said.

He’s begging a being who Christians believe to be the “all-powerful creator of the universe” to “step forward” to protect His “reputation”??? It doesn’t get any more insane than that.

More insanity:

The Terrorist Barack Hussein Obama

Noted:

At McCain-Palin rallies, the raucous and insistent cries of “Treason!” and “Terrorist!” and “Kill him!” and “Off with his head!” as well as the uninhibited slinging of racial epithets, are actually something new in a campaign that has seen almost every conceivable twist. They are alarms. Doing nothing is not an option.

Why has McCain stooped to such a disgusting level? Christianity.

If you are an intelligent Christian, consider this moment in history as an opportunity to turn on your brain. Look at the insanity that Palin has brought to the campaign. The deep root of it all is her Christianity. By proclaiming yourself to be a Christian, you align yourself with millions of Palins. Do you want to be a part of such insanity? Or is it time to consider the rational path?

    It is disgusting. This is their last-minute strategy to win the elections? Dragging religion into the center of the controversies? Pathetic.

    I get the impression that McCain didn’t realize just how radicalised his supporters were — and he just wanted to scrape more boarderline voters into the fear camp to add to his base. Yet, it’s a dangerous game meddling with true believers in this nonsense, and using hard core psychology against them to manipulate them. I can easily see a small fraction of these folks becoming domestic terrorists or actively sabotaging the USA because they feel ‘cheated’ — and base it all on a twisted fantasy and not reality.

    No matter what the outcome of these elections, this will not be positive in the long run.

    Thanks for the article. I’m not a big fan of Time since they cratered in the 90s (going for entertainment), but occasionally they do put out some good stuff.

    As a registered Republican, I’m considering writing a few checks to the … Democratic Party of Virginia and the Obama for President campaign

    Just curious, why are you a registered republican?

    McCain booed after trying to calm anti-Obama crowd

    At one point, the Republicans were the sane party.

    Note that the Democrats have mimicked the GOP in recent years. It’s the reason why they can’t impeach W; they’d go down in flames with him. I’m very disgusted with both parties.

    Okay, just wanted to clarify that. Yes, I totally agree with you there. I’d rather stay independent away from all parties.

    In the US, it’s hard for other parties to thrive. 2 party arrangements work well when they work, but they have failed in this decade. It’s unfortunate that we can’t revamp our democracies as we learn more. As Churchill said; ‘it is the worst system except for all the others’.

    FWIW, the investigation into the “kill him” comments by the Secret Service indicated that no one actually said that.

    Oze: “FWIW, the investigation into the “kill him” comments by the Secret Service indicated that no one actually said that.”

    References? (Not required, but if you have them I’d appreciate knowing the facts.)
