So Rick Perry, one of the frontrunners for the GOP ticket, put out an ad yesterday declaring that he'll put an end to "Obama's War on Religion."



Well, it's bold and honest. I'll give him that.

Also, just for fun here's The Daily Show discussing Herman Cain's announcement that's he's suspending his campaign for the Republican candidacy:

See I COMPLETELY lost it during his comparison of Newt Gingrich to La Choy baby corn, especially since I'm sure we've got things like that in my pantry.

And to Rick Perry, I loving say, "Oh, Sky Cake. Why must you be so delicious?"

Yeah all of the faggots and their gay parades stop sporting that shit during military parades!

Oh wait...that's not real. They are not saying they are gay when we tell military farewell or when we welcome them back.

WHEN IS THIS A PROBLEM AGAIN? HEY RICK PERRY! FUCK YOU.

E- Although I will say that praying in school should be allowed and saying "Christmas" should also be allowed...wait, when was this banned in schools again?

HEY RICK PERRY! FUCK YOU!

I have no headphones handy, and my niece is finally asleep...must. watch. video.

Wanna know what I like about Rick Perry? I can't help but find him handsome. There. I said it. Let's see if I can dig for anything else...

Right.

I THINK I get what point he was trying to make. But the WAY he's presented it? What kind of...

**facepalm.**

Rogue... I think you got it a bit twisted about his attack on gays because RP is a retard.

First of all... DADT is out... What he wants to do is bring back religion to schools and public like in the 1960s.

I mean I live in the South but in North Georgia we have a LOT of gay people I know here who are PRETTY OPEN about their lifestyles. BUT where is religion put when you have nothing but (please forgive me just being the devil's advocate) atheist who are really against our school system saying Merry CHRISTmas and rather teachers say Happy Holidays (my CO is an English teacher)? To be quite frank... the United States says we are allowed to be open in EVERYTHING.

I believe the fanatics are the ones who give us this problem though. You have the church fanatics who are against gays being open and what not... but that's what leaves a sour note for the rest of the populations. People who hear Bible automatically start thinking YOU'RE GOING TO BEAT ME IN THE HEAD WITH A BIBLE.

Here I think this illustration helps out.

Well the fanatics are the ones that Perry is pandering to. And yes, not all Christians are that way... but there are way more than you'd think... like it is shocking how many think that if you aren't Christian than you must be waging a war against them... it's fucking stupid.

I actually got in a huge debate with a friend because he was annoyed at the whole Merry Christmas thing... and I tried to explain that people are asking for "Happy Holidays" because it isn't the only holiday celebrated this month. Pagans have Yule, Jews have Hanukkah, Muslims Ramadan, and Africans Kwanzaa. It's not an "attack" it is acknowledging that it's not the only one, and that you don't know by looking at someone which one the celebrate unless they make some obvious sign (like wearing a cross or a yamakah or a pentacle).

Then he started bitching about "holiday trees"

... First, I have heard no one, and I mean no one, use that phrase. Closest thing I've heard is "Tree lighting ceremony" in place of "Christmas tree lighting ceremony". Second, Pagans usually use them as well since the practice came from us in the first place (a lot just do Yule logs, but there are many still who grew up with trees and we want to keep them)... so it's not a Christmas-only thing.

His response was "I don't go to other countries and tell them how to celebrate their holiday that they celebrate". Uh... dude, Christmas isn't an American-only holiday. Sadly, he could not seem to grasp that concept. At least he wasn't as bad as other people who are like "If you don't celebrate Christmas you're not American so GTFO"... those are the people that piss me off.

If you know a person celebrates Christmas, then go ahead and say Merry Christmas. It's hilarious to me that the only people I see getting really offended about all this are the Christians. I don't flip out if someone says "Merry Christmas" to me, I just say "Happy Holidays" back. Sometimes I even say Merry Christmas instead, since obviously they celebrate it. I cannot wear my pentacle openly at work, so they don't know I am Pagan (nor would I doubt they'd know what it meant anyway)... I would prefer Happy Holidays, or even a Merry Yule... but I won't get it and I know it. Especially not here, where people honestly get pissed off at having to work on Good Friday.

But I digress... short version: Perry is an idiot pandering to bigger idiots that don't actually have a clue to what is really going on in the world. They think that everyone should be super Christian and HAVE to pray in schools and yadda yadda yadda. Christian clubs are still allowed to pray in school as part of their club functions. If a student just wants to pray quietly, they can. Teachers/Administrators cannot make the students pray. That is what changed. Because the non-Christian students (and even the ones like JWs who have this weird thing about not praying with non-JWs) were tired of being forced to do something against their will.

I'm confused. What do I have twisted? I was only quoting him, and I do NOT in any way believe Obama is waging war on religion. I do not in any way respect Rick Perry, but I do respect his right to believe whatever he wants.

My one comment in any way supporting him was saying his ad was at least honest, as in he wasn't sugar-coating his feelings to gain support from both sides. It's a ballsy position to take, frankly.

In other news, Perry said there were EIGHT Supreme Court judges.

EDIT: Elara ninja posted me. Elara, I agree.

True... True... But I really don't think it really was an attack on gays... To be quite honest... He was pointing out the fact that there's something not right about how people can be open about their sexuality but Christian fanatics aren't treated the same way.

And Elara don't get me started on Ramadan and religious tolerance.

Edit 2: Seriously though Rogue. I think RP is just saying that he wants the United States to be 100% tolerant in his own little cute retard way. Believe it or not Obama has done somethings that really REALLY upset the balance of tolerance on being an American too.

I won't gig Obama on running in side when he heard the flag song about to go off instead of saluting the flag for 30 seconds. We all have done that before, but there are people who fought and now can't stand on their own two feet to salute the flag.

I will gig him on his stupid reason for not wearing an American flag on his lapel though. It's just not presidential and saying he wears it in his hear. Bull fucking shit you just don't want to wear another fucking pin on your lapel because you think it's tacky. (Joking)

OMG THERE'S ABSOLUTELY NOTHING WRONG WITH OBAMA AND HE HASN'T DONE ANYTHING BECAUSE THE HOUSE IS FULL OF FUCKING RETARDS!!!!

Wait...

He doesn't salute the flag.

Awwwwwe...

But he made it so my gi bill can be passed on to my husband if I wanted to! and he made Tricare Reserve Select AWESOME!

If no candidates had worn them, no one would notice. If all but one wear them, people notice. It's a cheap attempt at faux-patriotism and trying to trap your opponents, nothing more.
