Quote of the Day

“We are based on the Judeo-Christian ethic, we derive a lot from it, but if you say we’re a Christian nation, what about the Jews, what about the Muslims, what about the non-believers?” - Karl Rove, 8/16/11 on Fox News. Rove went on to say that referring to the US as a "christian nation" is "offensive." It took a helluva long time, but he has finally said something not completely batshit crazy!

I'm impressed. First he bashes what Perry said about the Bernanke and now this...has he decided to renounce his life of evil doing?

Doubtful. The Perry thing is personal between Rove and him, and it goes back a ways, apparently. The comment here is unique, but I'm sure he has polling that shows it is okay to finally state the obvious.

Did the Dark Lord of the Sith finally gain a conscience? I agree with what he said about this not being a Christian nation, but the whole "Judeo-Christian" thing is bupkis.

Agreed. The Christianists or teavangelicals, as I like to call them, throw the "judeo" thing out there to make their assertion seems less bigoted. It doesn't really work.

I always ask folks who use that "Christian nation" crap why it doesn't explicitly say so in the Constitution, and they never have a response.
