Love notes to the English language
Yes, there's little doubt as to what this nation would be subjected. I would suggest we might also be moved closer toward a theocracy -- tempting some to more actively pursue a religious war.
thank you for your always astute, thought-provoking comments! perhaps we need to fight harder for freedom of religious expression--OUR religion, whatever that might be, against theirs, which in our opinion sucks. Is there some catch as to what qualifies as "religion" in the US? So many members, so many units (churches), a registered hierarchy?
Digby is a lot like potato chips: you can't settle for just one.
Yes, what is "religion" in the U.S.? I would welcome individuals in all groups doing a little more private spiritualizing -- much less rhetoric about it and more on solutions to governmental issues as candidates campaign for public office. Viva the separation of church and state!
Nance: Agree!Joared: Religious behavior is a fascinating subject. I've read that it's heritable (much like musical ability) and that people who express more religious behavior tend also to have more children than non-religious people. Oh, boy.....
XE--While there, I picked up this quote: "When push comes to shove, it may well be the biggest thing wrong with the Obama Administration is that the wrong Obama is in charge." It would be difficult to argue with that statement!Cop Car
Cop Car: Do you think they're going "good cop/bad cop"??
XE--No more than the Clintons were practicing it. Strong "First Ladies" take the heat whenever they try to be influential or express independent opionions beyond the "female sphere". I can't wait to get off of the kick of male-only US presidents. (I still think that Ms Clinton would have made a better president than Mr Obama.)CC
CC: i agree....and maybe she would have made a better president than mr. clinton!!
