Why is this crazy talk ok by elected officials?

"I believe that Barack Obama is God's punishment on us today, but in 2012, we are going to make Obama a one-term president," declared Texas state Rep. Leo Berman (R-Tyler) according to the Tyler Morning Telegraph.

Berman's extreme words were accompanied by other comments from conservative figures, including Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Tex.), who, in the height of the health care debate last month said that "demons" had invaded Washington and were causing Democrats to mislead voters about the merits of the bill.

Glenn Beck, speaking at the event, said: "Do you believe this is God's land? Do you believe our constitution was divinely inspired? Why do you believe those things?" Beck asked. "If God is with us, who can possibly stand against us? The answer is no one."

  • Ahhhh, there we go generalizing again, Older. I would expect nothing less from you. Just don't complain about it when the tables are turned.

  • ^^^^THAT is a bigoted statement if I ever heard one. More generalization, I see.

    I can understand why it bothers you Sweet, but they ARE entitled to free speech, and freedom of religion.

  • Here is my opinion, bigots are the last to admit they are bigoted.


    Here is a definition for those who don't understand what the word means: BIGOT -a person obstinately or intolerantly devoted to his or her own opinions and prejudices.
