We may soon have a President who believes there is a Planet called Kolob where God resides. I mean, really? But ssshhh, don't talk about it, personal religious beliefs are out of bounds for the media;)

Heh, we've had a series of Presidents who believe a man can be nailed to a cross, DIE, and then come back to life...and then...well that father son holy ghost shit is seriously fucked up.

You can not make this shit up.

Is that any more ridiculous than the ritual cannibalism practiced by the VP candidates?

Leave religious beliefs out of it. The political race that is.

The apocalypse? Anything goes.

I disagree. Keep hammering Romney on his purported religious beliefs. Do it in the name of the Democrat Party and Obama. Please, bring out all your bigotries for everyone to see.

At the same time, let's scrutinize Obama's religious beliefs, shall we?

Wonder if anyone else has heard FBI translator Sibel Edmonds' testimony that Denny Hastert was the contact for the Turkish agents in regards to obtaining US nuclear technology that was passed along to Dr/ Kahn. Yeah, yeah, sounds crazy... but Hastert disappeared at the height of his prowess with no tangible explanation given.

If you believe far fetched tales to a level bordering on hallucinatory, and you are running for President, it's certainly not bigotry to weigh that as evidence of competency. After all, Obama was questioned about the minister of his church. His beliefs have been scrutinized thoroughly and you raised nary a fuss. Personally I find all hyper-religious folks to be fucking wacky.

I often find myself struggling with the suspicion that most prominent intellectuals who profess religious beliefs do so out of a sense of convenience or necessity. If you actually examine your religious beliefs, regardless of your religion, they're absurd and bordering on delusional.

But it wouldn't be the first time that I patted myself on the back for my superior intelligence only to find out that the person I disagreed with was smarter than myself. I don't think you can separate religion and psychology. People believe what they want to believe, and just like comfort foods, I think people possess comfort beliefs as well. They aren't necessarily rational, they're historical.

"I'm sorry Jim. I'm gonna stop the subsidy to PBS. I'm gonna stop other things," Romney said. "I like PBS, I like Big Bird, I actually like you too."

At that point, someone in the Twitterverse responded by creating a @FiredBigBird account, which, as of this writing shortly after 10 p.m. ET, had almost 9,900 followers.
