Don't be fooled, the tea party founder is a religious bigot...

  1. (Another piece of evidence of how extreme and anti American the tea party really is...America was founded on religious freedom...something this tea bagger doesn't like)

    Tea Party Nation founder Judson Phillips has a dream: "No more Methodist Church."

    A blog post on his Tea Party Nation page says that on Friday he walked by the United Methodist Building in Washington D.C., which had a sign that said, "Pass the DREAM Act." Phillips wrote: " I have a DREAM. That is, no more United Methodist Church."

    Phillips explains that he was formerly a member of the church, but he left because it's "the first Church of Karl Marx," and "little more than the "religious" arm of socialism."

    "The Methodist church is pro-illegal immigration," he continues. "They have been in the bag for socialist health care, going as far as sending out emails to their membership "debunking" the myths of Obamacare. Say, where are the liberal complaints on the separation of church and state?"

    "In short, if you hate America, you have a great future in the Methodist church," he says.

    Phillips has recently argued that it's a "wise idea" to only let property owners vote. He's also defended an email he wrote calling for supporters to help "retire" Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN) because "he is the only Muslim member of congress."

  2. Time to march out the left's old double standard. If religious leaders support a conservative issue, they are violating the separation of church and state and we are in danger of having the taliban take over.

    If a religious denomination supports a liberal issue, no matter how extreme however, they are above criticism, it is an obvious religious duty to adopt their position and anyone who doesn't is a hypocrite and a dangerous fanatic.

  4. Is it really necessary to illustrate how fallacy driven your comments are?

    Can you name some liberal politicians who support banning mainstream (yes, Methodists are mainstream) religions?

    Sure, there are the some atheists who also happen to be liberal who want to abolish all religions, but mainstream liberals have no such agenda.

    Figures a right wing extremist would come to the defense of a totalitarian lunatic tea party nation leader who has the gall to claim to support the Constitution yet wants to ban a particular religion.

    You really do a fine job of illustrating the tactics of the lunatic right, using loaded language and out right lies.

    I know you are nearly always proud to come front and center and display your parroting of Limbaugh and the other unAmerican kooks who rule the right wing talking points, but the piece of legislation at hand is hardly extremist in nature, and easily passed in the Senate with votes coming from mainstream republicans:

    WASHINGTON -- The Senate voted overwhelmingly in favor of bypassing a filibuster of the DREAM Act, but fell five votes short on Saturday, dealing a harsh blow to the bill that would have allowed some undocumented immigrants who came to the United States as children to gain legal status.

    The final vote total was 55-41 -- well above what would be needed for the bill to pass in a normal vote. Many previously undecided Democrats voted in support of the bill, as did Republican Sens. Richard Lugar (R-Ind.), Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) and Bob Bennett (R-Utah).

  5. The early KKK was/and perhaps still is, anti Catholic...

    In 1915, the second Klan was founded and remained a small organization in Georgia. Starting in 1921 it adopted a modern business system of recruiting (which paid most of the initiation fee and costume charges to the organizers) and grew rapidly nationwide at a time of prosperity. The second KKK preached Americanism and purification of politics, with a heavy tome of racism, anti-Catholicism, anti-Communism, nativism, and antisemitism. Some local groups took part in attacks on private houses, and carried out other violent activities. The violent episodes were generally in the South.[11]

    Wonder if the Klannish realize that 5 of the SCOTUS justices are Catholic...
  6. Rick Santelli is a religious bigot?

    Its odd you would bring that up. Especially since you have expressed such animosity towards Christians.

    Why do you bring that up. You typically reserve your most vile comments for Christians and you tell Christians they should not be allowed to vote. Do you give the same admonition to Supreme Court justices? Or do you like some of them because the biggest liberal ever was Justice Brennan or that Kennedy is a moderate swing vote on the court. I would think you would object to Scalia and Thomas even being on the court as Catholic Christians. Scalia even went to Jesuit high school and Thomas went to a episcopal church for a while before returning the Catholic Church.

    Get ready for some sort of b.s. from zzz about Christians who do not follow Jesus the way zzz feels they should.
