The "vast majority" attend churches that do not aspire to political power, while it is pretty obvious the ones that do believe the nuttiest shit imaginable.

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

Where did I suggest anything was created in 6 days and/or 6,000 years ago?

They are politicians who knows what the well they really believe and anyway what they believe does not really matter as their stance on an issue is for sale to the highest bidder.

They are saying what they think they need to say to get elected - not what they actually believe. Unless the two happen to coincide for the moment.

If that were the case, they would agree on everything.

Not at all. They have different voting basis they have to energize and they have different views of what it takes to get elected.

Not to mention they have to get through the party process to get the nomination.

A pronouncement from the mouth of a recent convert to the Church of the Hussein.

The biggest problems we are facing right now have to do with George Bush trying to bring more and more power into the executive branch and not go through Congress at all and that’s what I intend to reverse.

~ Senator Barack H. Obama
