“Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R) said he still doesn’t know whether Barack Obama is Christian, months after a spokesperson had to clarify that the governor wasn’t casting doubt on the President’s faith.
“The Republican presidential candidate said “I don’t know” whether Obama is Christian during a Q&A on Saturday in front of GOP donors hosted by billionaires Charles and David Koch, according to Time.”
This might be violating the sweet rule my mother taught me as a wee ‘Grain, you know, to never pick on the simple: but what the f*** does it matter, Scottie? Article VI of the Constitution says,
“The Senators and Representatives before mentioned, and the Members of the several State Legislatures, and all executive and judicial Officers, both of the United States and of the several States, shall be bound by Oath or Affirmation, to support this Constitution; but no religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office or public trust under the United States.”
…and that was written before the Bill of Rights, so for all of the Founding Fathers’ Fetishers out there this is original intent territory.
How about this: Peoples’ religion is what they say it is and leave it at that. I’m not sure what “Christian” means exactly, but I’m sure of what Koch Brothers’ bagman means, and Walker is definitely that.
I love the way they have to audition to be a Kochsucker.
Dance fool, dance!!
Except Little Lindsey who dances to his own tune.
I’d like to see Sammiches attempt that top video.
Jeremiah Wright rolls his eyes in wonderment then shakes his head.
Huh, do they really believe the Kenyan Usurper is running for a third term?
Jade Helm 15, baby!
Alternate take: the Bible is clearly against two things- bearing false witness and eating hot ham.
