Oh, Now That’s Cold.

You may remember about a week ago when Representative Bill Sali of Idaho’s 1st District made these “This is a Christian nation”-type remarks:

We have not only a Hindu prayer being offered in the Senate, we have a Muslim member of the House of Representatives now, Keith Ellison from Minnesota. Those are changes — and they are not what was envisioned by the Founding Fathers.

Predictably, Rep. Sali is apologizing; that’s what politicians are best at, after all. Though I think religion is, in general, a stupid pursuit, and I don’t really care if religious folks fight amongst themselves (as long as it doesn’t affect other people), Rep. Ellison’s response, via his spokesman, Rick Jauert, was genius.

From the AP report:

“We will take Bill Sali at his word,” Rick Jauert said Friday. “That would be in keeping with Keith’s turn-the-other-cheek mentality.”



One response to this post.

  1. Hahahaha! Great post!

    As a Christian(and Constitutionalist) I believe that, regardless of religion/sexual preference/race/whatever, a person should be allowed to express that however they feel that they need to(there are always exceptions to this, but I think you’ll understand what I’m saying).

    The state of our political leaders these days is getting increasingly worse. I can only hope and pray that this next election will bring a sort of “revolution” to the leaders of our country.
