The Paranoid Guide to Better Living: Rick Perry Insults Christians, Uses Faith for Hate - Page 3
In the video Rick Perry confuses Christianity and faith. Yes, this country was built on faith - faith in this country. Religion was part of it, of course it was. The founders carried that burden and it's never left. However, faith is something completely different than religion. And I want to have faith in my government and it's elected officials, but when douchebags like you think the only faith I can have is that in Christianity then you make it hard to trust you at all.
Reading this, some Christians will think I am attacking their faith. I'm not. What I am attacking is the operation of religion within the government and politicians who think that religion should be a factor in running this country. We are not a country of just Christians.
I think, Rick Perry, you missed the Crusades by a couple hundred years. I'm tired of politicians and the government trying to force religion on me. Just do your fucking job without bringing your God into the conversation, it just makes everything sound fucking silly. You may as well be talking about flying unicorns. The proof for the existence of either is just about equal.
In the end, Rick Perry is hiding behind his religion to express hatred and disgust at other Americans, primarily anyone of any other religion besides Christianity and the gay population. If anything, true Christians should be outraged and insulted at this blatant abuse of faith.
Rick Perry, like all politicians who pony ride their religion like gangbusters, should stop challenging things like gay marriage and other types of issues and worry about our roads. Tell me how you are going to fix our infrastructure, how you are going to erase the debt, how you are going to get us out of Afghanistan - not how much your religion tells you that you hate abortion.
Rick Perry, your mistake wasn't telling us that you are “not afraid to admit that [he's] a Christian,” but that you are using it as a platform for hate. Even your buddy Jesus wasn't too happy with your hate campaign. Your mistake was using Christianity as an excuse to be a total dick. Paranoia out.
