Bachmann thinks she has it figured out

Bachmann is your classic right wing idiot who is more concerned about God than about the general health of the nation. Here she is, lamenting the fact President Obama is declaring America is not a Christian nation. It doesn’t seem to matter to her he’s right; although a majority of Americans are Christian, the country itself was designed not to give any religion special favor. It’s why the very first Amendment is about the freedom of religion. This freedom is only possible when no one religion is held with higher regard than others.

If you want to know why secular governments are important, imagine if Bachmann had said this: “We must humble ourselves before the Almighty Zeus, and follow in the example of Horus. It is Zeus that holds this nation in his divine hands.” I’m sure everyone would have flipped out, but she’s allowed to pretend other Presidents have always secretly supported the rights of Christians over other religious minorities. Let’s just be glad she’s just a terrible and ineffectual Congresswoman; otherwise, I’d be concerned.

    She certainly knows how to appeal to authority. I see this trend often: If you don’t have facts on your side or evidence, then quote-mine dead people. She says don’t pat ourselves on the back for making the country great, its great because of god’s influence over the country. I guess god really really hates Africa or something.

    Well she obviously smokes the Jesus weed too often, but I kind of agree with her that covering the cross up was not cool. That stuff was a statement of shame towards the identity of the college, and an act of weak politically correct nonsense, fuck that shit. Unless the christians behave like total idiots you have no right to be ashamed of them, be ashamed of individuals, not of the whole group on no definite point.

    From that point its understandable, if shame is the reason. I think primarily it was to avoid people making a connection that the president is specifically endorsing a religion. The bottom line is that government and religion are seperate and since he is part of the governing body of the US I think it is acceptable to cover any prominent religious symbols if he is making an official address. There is also the potential outcome of people photographing him with a prominent religious symbol in view, then the religious nuts will use the photo to claim that the US is a christian nation. Much like quote mining Einstein to claim that he believed in a personal god etc….
