Fox News brings an atheist on the show to ask what they do to prepare for natural disasters. It devolves into them yelling at the atheist for “insulting” their beliefs in about 30 seconds, and it’s hilarious.
Interesting, because Fox News had no problem declaring a War on Christmas when the Atheists decided to put up a billboard.
It’s mockery until the Fox News host tells him that he is wrong and delusional.
Hahaha that atheist guy is such a fuckin douche.
whys he a douche? hes 100% correct. it is delusional to think that praying is going to stop a hurricane. he says its fine to do it, but the prayers arent going to do anything to stop the storm. hes totally right.
“I’m calling on Americans to pray and fast like Jesus did and as God called the Israelites to do in the Book of Joel.”
It is clear that Rick Perry seeks to make America a Christian nation and demean it’s secular heritage and system of function. It is not fair to allow a man who is basically advocating for the exclusion of religious minorities from what is perceived to be American culture by making it wholly Christian to represent the people of America. I argue that Rick Perry is unAmerican simply by the fact that his idea of American culture removes the true patchwork of American society with the intention of replacing it with with people who are ideologically similar to him (i.e. Christians).
“In 2006 he said that he believed the Bible to be inerrant. He also said that those who did not accept Jesus Christ as their personal savior would be going to hell. Pressed a little on the sheer wickedness and stupidity of that last claim, the governor did allow that he himself wasn’t omniscient enough to be sure on such doctrinal matters. He tells us that he is a “firm believer” in the “intelligent design” formulation that is creationism’s latest rhetorical disguise, adding that the “design” could be biblical or could have involved something more complex, but is attributable to the same divine author in any event. Whether he chooses to avail himself of the wiggles or not, Perry can be reasonably sure that the voting base of the theocratic right has picked up his intended message.”
