This "article" is dripping with opinion and not fact. 34% say they want Christianity as a state religion? Maybe in a conservative state, but not in CA. More than 1/2 of Americans approve of Gay marriage (see recent Time article). Highly doubt that 1/2 would want to force a religion on someone else.

And if Rand Paul truly made the comment about President Obama, then he's a bigger idiot than I originally thought. He will never hold a position outside of his state.

By the way, founding fathers were not nearly as Christian as everyone likes to think. President Thomas Jefferson, author of Declaration of Independence, studied all religions. And since many of our founding fathers owned slaves and felt women should not be allowed to vote, I'm not one to think we should go back to the old ways.

Marvin was quoted as saying, "I certainly can't tolerate anyone else's beliefs, since my own arrogance and ignorance prevents me from seeing beyond my own hooked nose."
His quote was derived from an interview on the DailyKos website, so it must be true. No one would post fake quotes on a reputable website just to garner attention for themselves and to try to discredit people of faith, would they?

What tale are you spinning Marvin? with "Back in the days"?? There were actually a variety of religions in New America. Except, most of our founders were Deists (merely believing in A god) not christianity or any demoninations. There were many Quakers, which continued through to Richard Nixon.
There can never, nor will there ever be a 'state' religion. It would mean another revolution. Jeff Sessions is not fit to be a Republican. True Republican conservatives believe in 'limited government', not meddling in personal, private lives.
Even the bible says nothing and people knew nothing of contraception..It's folly to even discuss in a political forum...it's personal. Even for catholics, it's a new phenom...not mentioned in earlier days...another modern invention,not heard of 200 hundred years ago, much less 2000 years ago. Stick to facts. It is more rewriting, inserting,and making a farse out of earlier writings that did not cover such issues at all. Dripping is right about Thomas Jeferson, who was a scholar on all religions, which means he was a scholarly fellow, who believed in facts and science. Ben Franklin studied all religions, and didn't like the authoritarianism in religions and politics.
I think Paul just talked himself out of ever being President.

Thanks for the giggle, Conservative. You're too much! I can't stop laughing.

So, Marvin, you're a gay woman on the dole and a spokesperson for other such dregs of society? One would think this should be a paid position, therefore disqualifying you from stealing our tax dollars for your food stamps.
God, it must be tough for you flaming leftists to continue to produce fake issues and fabricating quotes as though you are not libeling the person allegedly having said what you claimed........
