Yeah, McCurry and his ‘Rats found god alright, the ‘god of this world’, and it ain’t King Jesus.

Believe that.

A religious Leftist who cannot understand why the PC crowd have abandoned him...well, since the real intention of the Liberals is a global gulag, not peace and the handout charity they impose on the taxpayer is a trade for politcal power...

Liberals are not religious by design, unless appeasing Islam.

This just goes to prove - There is NOTHING the Democrats won’t do to gain & retain power.

In Barack Obama, Democrats have put forth a man of strong religious faith who is comfortable connecting his spiritual life to his public role as a policymaker.

Uh, memo to McCurry...

Barky couldn't leave the beach for Christmas services this year.

For me, and maybe for many religious kids of the ‘60s, the church lost relevance the more it became a surrogate in the movement for social and political change. Why go to church to learn how to seize political power and change the established order?

This is what happens when the church preaches leftist revolution - the more "relevant" it becomes, the less relevant it is.

What Mr. Mcurry just mentioned so casually here, he would probably never dream of accepting in a conservative Christian politician. In fact, his ilk would be screaming "separation of church and state!" in response to his/her every move.

“Where to begin?”

I’ll start.

A shattered economy means the target demo for evangelical religion, middle and southern working class American males, are in for the biggest economic hurt. They’re the ones who work with their hands, and occupy middle management at the retail outfits spiraling into insolvency.

Into this enters Obamaployment, 2-3 million public works jobs. Dream jobs, in terms of wage, benefit and job security. Jobs that by design will go to ... middle and southern working class American males.

They used to be trade unionists. They used to be blue dog democrats. They turned into Reagan Democrats in the 80’s, and Evangelical Republicans in the 90’s.

The bleeding of this demo into both the Evangelical and GOP camps directly correlates with the loss of the original Obamaployment, union protected employment.

When the Dems had nothing left to materially offer this demo, thery came here.

The Dems are ‘finding god’ again because it perfectly wing-tips with the demo they’re trying to lock up again. The GOP/Evangelical demo. OUR demo.

Men will defend their jobs and the economic well being of their families.

This is SUCH a trap. A Democratic Party that’s merged employment with faith politics, against a GOP railing against that employment and telling people they arent religious enough anymore?

These are smart people and they setting up the mother of all 2012 electoral traps, and they arent even in power yet.

Faith in what??? Faith in his faith.

Remember what BHO stated when he was asked what was sin “Anyone that go along with MY values”. Quite debased!!!

"Separation of church and state" has been their mantra ever since any Christian Republican has been near any office of power. Now, all of the sudden, a screaming left Black Liberation Democrat with Muslim roots takes the reins, it's OK to recommend candidates from the pulpit.

Hypocrisy, thy name is Democrat.

Abortion-on-demand, homosexual marriage, drug decriminalization, human-caused global warming, NAMBLA and Soviet-style government, silly!

Black Liberation Theology, in its Founder's Words

Liberals make a religion up to suit their agenda, justify themselves and their appetites. They are not looking for traditional values.

Glad to see someone gets it. The Obama crew is *smart*. The GOP is going to be the washington generals of politics for the next 20 years unless they get their act together *fast*.

I had no idea that McCurry was such an intellectual and spiritual mess.
