I should go back and watch “The West Wing”

If I had known there would be moments like this, I would have watched the damn show. In your face, fundies!

    I remember seeing this when it first aired, and it stuck with me, this was long before I became an atheist, was I was very young, the anti-gay beliefs of religious people seemed like such bullshit even then to a young teenager.

    Classic – Loved West Wing!

    Pity that sort of answer doesn’t stop them spouting the same cherry picked chapter-and-verse crap to fit their own needs.

    It’ll be a cold day in hell if we ever hear a real US President saying anything like that though, surely?

    It’s inspired by a possibly-real letter sent to Laura Schlessinger, a famous self-designated “doctor” who openly crusades against gay rights.

    Wonderful show, and one of my favorite scenes. Slightly beat out by the Secret Plan to Fight Inflation – actually, all of ‘Celestial Navigation’ is great – and, “Mr President, you remember when you said not to wake you unless the White House was on fire?”

    And let us not forget “Two Cathedrals” the best damn hour of televison ever made, for that matter the last 5 episodes of season 2 from “17 People” on was bloody amazing. Gotta love the part in the first episode where the fundie sayS “I can tell you that you don’t believe in any god I pray to, Mr Lyman” To which he responds “Lady, the god you pray to is too busy being indicted for tax fraud.”

    Funny to think that Martin Sheen would probably never say something like this in real life, just goes to show the depth of his professionalism and his talent. Martin is a devout Catholic in real life…

    “As the Mass begins and the crucifix in the central nave comes close, I think: “I know this man, He is also my Redeemer, He also belongs to me.”

    “The greatest miracle is that we too are made sons and daughters of God.”

    (Martin Sheen)
