(Thread: Obama beats Jesus as American 'hero')-



I think this is totally sick, but I agree that it's not really surprising. But I would also like to know where they did the survey. I wonder if maybe they called a lot of people who are on the welfare rolls.

Well, if Jesus actually existed, he wouldn't have been American....and he wouldn't have even been white. Face it, he would've been a dark-skinned, liberal Jew from Palestine (essentially everything the Raptards hate). Furthermore, the classism in your last statement is truly sickening.

I don't think that's fundie. No mention of religious zealousness.

I've been out of work for two years thanks to this economy - no unemployment either thanks to a loophole for Universities. As a formerly highly skilled engineer with a savings account and IRA I haven't qualified for ANY government program as I am "too rich" still. I'm laughing my ass off at everyone that thinks Obama is going to be the saviour of the economy - no one's really bothered to think out who exactly is paying for all this pork filled stimulus package. My senator sent me a wonderful form letter when I complained about his support of the package, saying it would create a whopping 6,000 jobs across our state. Wow. A whole 6,000... maybe that'll free up a cashier position or two so I can be one of over 6,000 more applicants for that one and instead of buying my first house, I can pay for the idiots who bought too much and live in this horrid place I live in now.

It really is all about perspective. I was a straight ticket voter until I needed help and there isn't dick the government is going to help me with unless I change races or get pregnant. Obama worship bothers me too and it has nothing to do with religion.

Thank you for the list of Republican talking points. I'm delighted you even got the "Obama worship" thing in.

Obama is bigger than Jesus. The Beatles are bigger than Jesus. Is Obama bigger than the Beatles? Discuss.

Welfare is a fine government institution, even if it is imperfect, the idea is good. I know it's against xtian morals to actually help people, but you all can just go fuck yourselves. We'll try to save ourselves while you all go off and bitch and moan about how liberals are so nice and kind and want everyone to have a chance at life, not just a select few. If you want to live by such a caste system, move to India, where you'll also learn what true persecution against xtians means.

Observable Reality - I think you just divided by zero with that statement.

Obama is nicer than Jesus. Obama cares about people more than Jesus. Obama is cleverer than Jesus. Obama is successful and enjoys life, Jesus is a wimp who needs lying idiots to defend him.

welfare rolls? You mean the people Jesus would be helping directly and sitting among? How dare Obama try to do what Jesus taught. Doesn't he know this is America where only the wealthy are to benefit from government?

I'm feeling this is more of a RSTDT, or am I the only one thinking "welfare recipient" is code for black?

Yeah, Jesus would never have paid any attention to those guys. I mean, it's not like he was a jobless hippie himself or anything, right?

Yeah, I just noticed that too, there is a lot of ambiguity about if he's referring to the main topic.

Nothing is wrong with getting welfare if one uses it properly. Not everyone who is on welfare is a dumb broad or something like that.
Everyone needs some help during hard times.

Obama should win by default because he's the only American.

Others in the top ten, in descending order, were Ronald Reagan, George W. Bush, Abraham Lincoln, John McCain, John F. Kennedy, Chesley Sullenberger and Mother Teresa, according to Harris Interactive.

This is just a stupid poll. It's as if none of the respondents have any sort of historical memory going back more than a year, apart from the obvious cliched famous people.

They phone people up, the people who respond are the ones with no lives who are willing to sit and discuss this kind of shit with strangers. Basically they ask "who is your hero". Because Obama's been in the news a lot lately that's where peoples minds are going to go right now.

Give it six months and it will be a different answer. If Jesus wants to be a hero, he's just going to have to get off his ass and do something.

You're scared that Obama made #1...I'm scared that GW Bush made it onto spot #5!!!

I feel confident in estimating that at least 99 percent of everyone on welfare in this country is a Christian.

At least the government is seen to be doing something to help people on welfare rolls. That used to be the church's job before you all went right-wing.
