Quote# 86660

"I don't care what the liberals say, I don't care what the naysayers say, this nation was founded as a Christian nation...There is only one God and his name is Jesus. I'm tired of people telling me that I can't say those words.. Listen to me, If you don't love America, If you don't like the way we do things I have one thing to say - GET OUT. We don't worship Buddha, we don't worship Mohammad, we don't worship Allah, we worship God, we worship God's son Jesus Christ."

In a revival type speech, Greenwell Springs Baptist Church pastor Rev. Dennis Terry introduced Family Research Council president Tony Perkins and 2012 Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

Christians, according to Rev. Terry, are the conscience of the state and even the key to turning the economy around. The pastor offered some pointed words about abortion, gay marriage, and prayer in schools, shouting about 'sexual perversion' and putting God back in Washington, D.C., as Senator Santorum was seen clapping, if not cheering, in the background.

You're nation was founded on secular principles. Re-read your Constitution. There is no mention of Jesus and your Founders are quite clear about their feelings towards Christianity.
So, you're wrong on all counts and Rick Santorum, regardless of what he says, would be neutered as president (from a religious perspective).
What you want is a theocracy and our experience with those indicates they're all third world shitholes that don't respect human rights.

Chris Rodda has an excellent book debunking David Barton and the "Christian nation" nonsense: Liars For Jesus: The Religious Right's Alternate Version of American History
She also has an excellent YouTube channel.

My favorite part is that Sick Rantorum's excuse was that he "wasn't paying close attention". And yet? I have a feeling that FAUX"News" won't spend months attacking him in the way that President Obama was attacked for attending the church of a Reverend who didn't say anything half as hateful. IOKIYAR.

you can say it, doesn't mean I wont laugh

>>A buddhist

We Buddhists do not worship the Buddha. We aspire to be like him. <<


And even 'like him' is a bit of a simplification. There are many ways to enlightenment.

Terry has to be knowingly lying. Either that or he is a fool.

You can say those words. You have a constitutional right to say those words. But a Muslim has a constitutional right to say there is no god but Allah and I have a constitutional right to say that there is no god period, but you don't have a constitutional right to try and silence either of us.

Yes indeed. It is very important that politicians are seen to offer their support for things that don't exist.

3/27/2012 11:06:56 AM


You just said those words. No one stopped you. People may criticize you for saying something, but that isn't the same thing. One is censorship and the other is debate. Learn the difference.

Not that anyone would criticize you for saying "There is only one God and his name is Jesus" anyway, except people looking for a philosophical debate (or a brawl). We criticize you politically for saying that the US isn't open to people of all faiths, which is antithetical to the ideas of the Founders.


He's obviously a fool, but I don't think he's lying. There is an astonishing level of ignorance among many American Christians about other religions. Most of them seem to think that Buddha is worshiped as a creator-deity, which just goes to show that they literally don't know the first thing about Buddhism.

3/27/2012 11:42:14 AM


Allah and Jehovah and Yahweh and God are all the same deity. You're arguing about semantics.

Mohammad was a prophet, like Moses. The Muslims revere him, they don't worship him as a deity. Just like Buddhists don't worship the Buddha, they revere him as a teacher.

If the only god's name is Jesus, how could Jesus be god's son? Is your god schizophrenic?

And I doubt that abortion, gay marriage, or prayer in schools will do squat to help our economy. You're just feeding your Republican obsession with religion and sex.

[i] Christians are the conscience of the state. [/]

What a terrifying idea for those of us who have functioning minds.

You know, this sounds suspiciously similar to something I heard in the 30s and 40s...

And by the way, everyone has an equal right to believe what they wish, but that doesn't mean you have to be an ass about it.

They aren't even trying to hide their bigotry anymore.

I don't care what the liberals say, I don't care what the naysayers say, this nation was founded by Donald Duck!

There. I said it on the Interwebs. It must be true.

3/27/2012 1:20:23 PM

"I don't care what the liberals say, I don't care what the naysayers say, this nation was founded as a Christian nation"

That's right, cover your ears and yell "lalalalalala!". That will make your correct.

"I'm tired of people telling me that I can't say those words"

He Who Doubts

Kill them. Kill them all. Do it now before they found the Fascist Christian Republic of America, put atheists into concentration camps, invade Europe, and nuke Islamic and communist countries. Let's not wait until 2050 when we'll want to send Kyle Reese back in time to plant car bombs in Santorum's motorcade.

3/27/2012 1:49:39 PM


We don't worship Buddha, we don't worship Mohammad, we don't worship Allah, we worship God, we worship God's son Jesus Christ."

What? No "we don't pray to Mary like the Babylonian whore in Rome"?

Oh yeah, the Baptists are sucking up to Mr. Papist Santorum. They're so desperate to get rid of the nigg.., oops, Obama, that they'll cheer for a Catholic.

Does Santorum realize that the Vatican has officially accepted anthropogenic global warming as a scientific fact? Oops. Yup, the Pope, a commie liberal tree hugger. Santorum must be doing overtime in the confessional.

Big JIlm

Yup, becoming more theocratic/religious will surely solve all of our economic woes in the States; just look what it's done for Mexico!

Here's a little article from the Treaty of Tripoli, which was passed into law on June 10, 1797.(emphasis mine)
"Art. 11. As the Government of the United States of America is not, in any sense, founded on the Christian religion; as it has in itself no character of enmity against the laws, religion, or tranquility, of Mussulmen; and, as the said States never entered into any war, or act of hostility against any Mahometan nation, it is declared by the parties, that no pretext arising from religious opinions, shall ever produce an interruption of the harmony existing between the two countries."
Also, the first amendment of the Constitution of the United States of America. (Emphasis mine)
"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."

Choke on them you pompous, overzealous, tyrannical religiotard. And if you don't like the fact that the USA is a secular nation, then I have one thing to say, get out.

3/27/2012 2:55:05 PM

= POPE =

So I guess that means you have accepted Jesus as your personal income, eh Rev. Terry?

3/27/2012 4:59:16 PM


We don't worship Buddha, we don't worship Mohammad, we don't worship Allah ...

You don't worship Allah? Allah is just the Arabic word for God. So you're saying you don't worship God?

3/27/2012 4:59:23 PM


Why don't YOU leave and go to Iran or something. They may worship that twisted moon god/Satan spawn Allah, but at least they'll still stone gays and police women's bodies.

3/27/2012 5:30:41 PM


And they call themselves Patriots.

"There is only one God and his name is Jesus. ...
we worship God's son Jesus Christ."

So, when he was on the cross he was talking to a mirror.

Say what you want.
That way we get to laugh at you.

3/27/2012 6:08:32 PM


You don't own the country. Keep that love it or leave it shit for when you manage to have a fascist government.

3/27/2012 6:55:22 PM


And this is why I'm planning to start an Apocalypse if Santorum wins.
