God is not a Republican or a Democrat...petition

http://go.sojo.net/campaign/takebackourfaith

Here's a summary:
Sign our petition and send a message that the Religious Right does not speak for you. Remind America that Jesus taught us to be peacemakers, advocates for the poor, and defenders of justice. Rather than endorsing any party, we must examine each candidate in light of the complete range of Christian ethics and values.

Help us place this petition into local newspapers across America and to as many other media outlets as possible before the election. After signing the petition, you will have an opportunity to give a gift to help communicate this important message.

I won't sign, because a) I don't believe in God, and b) I'm not American, but I do agree with the main message of the petition.

I really hate it when candidates trumpet that they are Christian simply for votes, or that the Religious Right flaunts the fact that the Republican Party is always right because they are on "God's side".

God doesn't take sides.

I'm waiting for someone to start the "God isn't a Christian" petition.

Dr. Teeth...God just blesses us (America) more, right?!

I mean, who has ever heard the song "God Bless the Netherlands"?

I saw a documentary the other day about how the Religious Right came to prominence over the last 50 years. I must say that for a bunch of people who profess such an obsession with Jesus (the doco consisted mostly of first-hand interviews with Falwell and the like), they didn't have much Christian compassion. Seemed more worried about keeping gays out of sight and getting prayer back in schools than anything that actually matters.

I don't care anymore. If you think God is on your side, fuck you, whoever you are.

^Good one Kieren, I personally dream of sticking all the Ayatollahs, Abu Hamza's and Bin Ladens of the world in a big patch of desert with the Christian doomsday fanatics and let them sort it out once and for all, let them have their apocalypse - just keep me and everybody else out of it!

And I propose a 4 meter fence all around it.

But how to lure them in there, thats the big question, at the moment I am thinking of telling each of them a different story.

To the Christian Zealots - Look out in that desert, its an satanic interracial gay couple!

To the Muslim Zealots - Look its a single human female who is not under the righteous iron fist of a man, get it! that or "Somebodys attractive Cousin!".

To anyone else - you wanna see a dead body?

Now what types of doomsday weapons should they be armed with, neutron bombs would eliminate the messy cleanup - then again with big rocks and bones they could recreate the ape men scene from 2001.

everyone knows that God takes sides... just listen to any acceptance speach or post game interview.
