Howard Dean was on the Daily Show. Whether you like him or not he did have an undeniably valid comment on the Republicans “values movement”: “The Bible mentions about 3000 times to help the poor. It mentions gays zero times.” And where are the Republicans focusing?
A report that came out calling the Air Force Academy campus rife with religious discrimination by the evangelical Christians. There was a Republican Congressman saying that “Like a moth to a flame, Democrats can’t help themselves when it comes to denigrating and demonizing Christians.” Hmmm. What country does this guy live in? Denigrating and demonizing Christians? Talking critically about Christianity is so far off of anyone in politics radar it’s obscene, and bad.
He also talked about a “long war on Christianity” in America. Again, Hmmm. Stewart had a great comment on this, to the effect of: “Oh, the persecution. If only America could have an openly Christian President! If only we could have 46 of them! Consecutively!”
