And every year. People got really sick at the nonsense that went on last year, title change threads, Mods moving religious forum to breaking news, etc. etc. The all out attack has been prevalent for some time. It’s largely inconsequential, as the religious bigotry is more of a turn off to good people.
In any event I don’t like Romney’s big government ideas. The only person lower than him in that regard in this race is Santorum. No one in the race is perfect, but they’re the two biggest government liberals left in the race. I think Newt will be a better conservative if his feet were held to the fire. Ron Paul’s a Constitutional conservative, but may get us all killed with his “Iranians just want to be friends” mantra. The Constitution allows for people being stupid (it’s up to us to weed them out), it doesn’t allow for a giant nanny state.
There is no comparison between Santorum and Romney.
Santorum is right when he says that conservatism is not libertarianism. Conservatism historically has accepted a low level of government involvement in both social and economic affairs. For example, it is right, in my view, for the government to support natural marriage with thru such things as spousal sharing of social security benefits.
That supports the rearing of children and the sharing of that load by both mother and father.
Do NOT alert them!
When the 'good people' read the BIGOTRY found in #28; things may go in a different direction!
Is it “religious bigotry” if we don’t want a Muslim to be president? A religion is a powerfully defining factor in what someone’s world view, beliefs, temperament, ethics, values and personality is. It also defines what kind of people and groups will have influence on that person. To say that it’s “religious bigotry” to consider someone’s religion a factor when choosing whether or not to vote for them is totally uncalled for. I don’t know a whole lot about the Mormon religion, but I feel I would be obligated to learn a whole lot more about it before voting someone from its ranks into the presidency. It would be a dereliction of duty by a web site or media outlet to not report on the faith and try to educate people on it as much as possible when someone from it is this close to the presidency.
