In U.S., a growing unease at mixing politics with prayer

Mar 22, 2012 | Posted by: Mr_Bill | Full story: www.reuters.com

Americans are increasingly uneasy with the mingling of religion and politics, according to a poll released Wednesday by the Pew Research Center, in the midst of a campaign season punctuated by tussles over the role of faith in the public square.

Back in 2001, when Pew first asked the question, just 12 percent of Americans complained that their politicians talked too much about religion.

Democrats TAX and SPEND on infrastructure, public education, health care, national defense, research, etc. Is there pork? Of course, that is human nature but it is pork on both sides.

Republicons TAX and STEAL. Yes, spending on Americans is better than stealing from Americans. Do you really doubt this? Did you really say that?

I am willing to pay for the kind of society that gives me the kind of life I enjoy.

Republipox are never willing to pay for anything but still want the same kind of life to enjoy. That is the difference between responsible, decent people and Republipox.

If Republipox really hated government and society in general Republipox would be living off the land in the middle of the desert or out in the woods. There is a ton of empty space in the West. Go, live out your libertarian fantasies...see ya.

They stole quite a lot and are planning to do it again. This is how moral hazard works.

True.

The administration of GW Bush was just one long raid on the US Treasury.

Mutt Romputz used Bain Capital to remove money from an enterprise at the expense of other people. That is his strategy for the 'corporation' that is the US Government.

He will take money from the poor and the middle class, from infrastructure and education, from research and regulation and put it in his own pocket in a Swiss bank account. That is the history of Mutt Romputz's entire life....why should he change now?

Mutt Romputz raper and pillager of your money.

Not Christian? Gotta disagree with you there. They call themselves "The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints," so I think they would disagree with you, too. However, once one realizes that all institutionalized religions are cults, then the distinctions become pointless.
Mormons are Anti-Christian.
