I can't wait to see how North Carolina's Republican Theocrats in Congress vote on this critical issue. I'm betting they bat 1000, with each of our smarmy hypocrites voting to chip away at the freedoms guaranteed in the Constitution. At a time when the world is going to hell in a handbasket, the US House is fiddling in the fire.
The bill's sponsor, Rep. Todd Akin, R-Mo., said America was a nation of God-given inalienable rights and that's why the country is in a war against "radical Islamists." Democrats wouldn't want to "cut and run" in Iraq, he said, "if they understood the importance of those basic principles and that inalienable rights are impossible without a recognition of God and that's why the pledge bill is important and not irrelevant or trivial."
After much thought as to the veracity of his claim that inalienable rights are impossible without a recognition of god, I have one thing to say about Mr. Akin: I sure am glad that the supreme being he worships isn't as much of an idiot as he is.
