“I am not ashamed to admit that I am a Christian.”
Thus begins Rick Perry’s new Iowa political ad attacking President Obama and gay military personal. Somehow he equates the repealing of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” with how terrible it is that little Billy cannot sing Away In A Manger at the elementary school winter concert.
He then goes a bit further by declaring that when he is president he will end “Obama’s war on religion”.
Correct me if I am wrong but I think somewhere in the Hebrew text of the Christian Bible there is a little command that says something to the effect of “you shall not bear false witness against your neighbor”. I think it is actually part of the BIG TEN that so many Christians claim to follow.
Perhaps Mr. Perry should sit in the pew more often so that he can get his theology correct and see that his accusations against the President amount to bearing false witness, since there never has been a “war on religion” or “war on Christmas” issued from the White House.
Rick Perry has set himself up in the place of God as a judge by declaring that President Obama is not a Christian, and that he is out to destroy religious freedom in this country. I am truly tired of the radical/fundamentalist Christians lamenting about all the persecution they suffer in this country at the hands of the liberal politicians, media, and Hollywood.
Enough already!!!! The name of Jesus has been maligned and denigrated and abused long enough.
Rick Perry, I say to you, in front of the 20 people who accidentally come across this blog, you need to repent of this ridiculous ad…pull it from the airwaves and recognize that Jesus cannot be reduced to a political plank, or a pithy statement for you to garner a few votes.
Jesus is your God, not your lackey!
I am ashamed to say that I am a Christian because of you and people like you that are literally destroying the real meaning of Christianity.
