To all the Secular Progressive out there...

It bugged you that Palin relied on her faith to help her career, does it bother you that Obama does it?

"President Barack Obama says he’s gone from praying nightly before going to bed to praying all the time because he has a “lot of stuff” on his plate and needs “guidance all the time.”
Obama made the comments in an interview to air Thursday on ABC’s “Nightline

  • Of course it wouldn't bother secular progressives. ... they are far more interested in the progressive agenda (look it up: progressive MEANS communist) than in the secular agenda.

    Secularism ("there is no truth to religion, thus no moral right or wrong beyond what we choose for ourselves") mainly exists to silence opponents of progressive activists, anyway.

    So as long as Obama keeps violating individual rights ( AIG, Chrysler, GM) and constricting freedoms (czars, universal health care bill & the cap & tradebill), he's safe from progressives' disapproval.

  • "progressive MEANS communist"

    Hmm. dictionary.com disagrees with you: http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/progressive

    In answer to the original question...I didn't care about Sarah Palin's faith. I don't care about Obama's faith. They can have all the faith in the world or none at all. I don't really care about that. I don't vote from the pew.
