I know that politics is dirty. I know that many politicians play fast and loose with the truth. But in addition to being homophobic--criticizing active-duty gay soldiers--it also is outright dishonest. Kids can't celebrate Christmas or openly pray in school? Yes. They. Can. Organized, school-led prayers are not allowed. Teaching the Christmas story as truth is not allowed, because it is largely (or totally) a myth. Is this Rick Perry's plan to inch back up in the polls? Lie a couple of times and take potshots at soldiers? Great plan. Douche.
And finally, what's with this "Obama's war on religion?" Is that part of, or in addition to the fake FOX "News" War on Christmas?
