Who needs theocracy? Look at Saudi Arabia, Iran, and places like that. A horror
It is whoring for votes but I think of it more like going for a Union endorsement or something like that. The primary difference between the Religious Right and Religious Left is that the churches, and their parishioners on the Left have a strong tendency to NOT try and push for law that denies rights for people or that wants to curtail rights. The most that usually comes from this group is demands for EQUALITY for everyone, not just the “right” people [pun intended].

But big picture I prefer all church PAC out of politics.


Being smart is knowing the difference, in a sticky situation between a well delivered anecdote and a well delivered antidote - bear.

Right........I look at Hillary like Dennis Miller does, Miller says in her book she wrote that she had no idea ole Billy was fucking around on her behind her back. Miller says if she could not pick up that red flag coming from a mile a way then she is not someone he wants to be the POTUS. Makes sense......
