Religion and Politics

There are a few things that really piss me off over the years.  One of them is those in politics pushing their religion and want to make laws from those views.  Or just say stupid crap that is just bigoted.  Lets take Senator Jim DeMint-GnOPer from South Carolina that is up for reelection.  Don’t you worry now, DeMint is way ahead in the polls and I doubt very much South Carolina is voting for Greene.   We will still have our favorite bigot in the Senate.

Now, I don’t know if everyone has heard about some of the extremely bigoted comments the spewed forth from DeMint’s lips.  From Huffington Post:

Sen. Jim DeMint (R-S.C.) attempted to convince pastors that economic issues are moral issues at the Greater Freedom Rally at a church in Spartanburg, South Carolina yesterday, imploring them to help conservatives retake Congress in November.

In addition to reiterating anti-choice talking points on abortion and backing “traditional marriage,” according to the Spartanburg Herald-Journal, the senator went further and “said if someone is openly homosexual, they shouldn’t be teaching in the classroom and he holds the same position on an unmarried woman who’s sleeping with her boyfriend — she shouldn’t be in the classroom.”

That is the first two paragraphs from the article then it goes into when he spewed this crap back on “Meet The Press” with Tim Russet back in 2004.  Even has a transcript of it.  Interesting read.  I was fuming after reading it actually, but then if this type of thinking always makes me fume.  Why live in the Bronze Age when the rest of the World is in the Information Age?

What goes on in anyone’s bedroom, Mr Doucharoo, is none of your business and it has no place in the classroom either.  If a woman wants to live with her boyfriend and have a children with him, live like a married couple but never bother with that piece of paper.  How is that different from an actual married couple?  I will tell you this, doucharoo, there is no difference.

As far as gays teaching, if they have the education to teach let them.  What goes on in their bedroom is none of your business.   Just like what goes on in your bedroom, or lack there of, is none of their or mine business.  Being gay is normal.  They go to work, pay their taxes, raise their children to be tolerant, love their family.  I thought being a GnOPer was all about families.  Only heterosexual families?

Stop preaching and telling churches they need to be telling their members who to vote for and what issues to care about.  Gays are not hurting you.  You though are hurting others with your bigoted attitude.  You are part of the problem.  Only care about those that agree with you and your set of morals.

I do wonder of DeMint knows this.   Those that complain the loudest are deeply in the closet.
