Why is Obama quoting scripture in his speech?
Couldn't believe what I was hearing last night...

Anyone else want to weigh in on this... we have to fight for the separation of church and state over and over and over again!

I really don't have a problem with it. He quoted a short verse that was in context to the point he was making. He wasn't advocating a religion nor was he telling everyone to believe.


But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces

Advertisements for the Exodus moving coming out soon? I don't know.

It's an emotional appeal to those people who feel the bibble is what tells you what is good. Something there is no use for him using anyway because it isn't going to sway any politicians against him nor does it matter logically.

I didn't have a problem with it. I love it when atheists quote scripture. It's kind of a "practice what you preach bitches" teachable moment. Big Grin

Well, it's because he's a Christian and believes that stuff.

Shocker, I know, since the republicans have been telling us he's a Marxist Socialist Communist Muslim Kenyan from outer space and in league with the reptilians and little green men. (queue the eye rolling)

I think he quoted this stuff mostly because he's pandering to the religious right.

As someone who's supposedly a reptilian, I can safely say he didn't come to any of our meetings.

I mean, if I were a reptilian... And we had meetings... Y'know, hypothetically...

Latinos are mostly religious. The man isn't stupid.

Check out my now-defunct atheism blog. It's just a blog, no ads, no revenue, no gods.

But the immigration reform he's talking about affects largely Latinos
