James over at Wigderson Library & Pub posted this quote from Paul Hackett, Democratic candidate for senator in Ohio:
"The Republican Party has been hijacked by the religious fanatics that, in my opinion, aren't a whole lot different than Osama bin Laden and a lot of the other religious nuts around the world."
James believes that Hackett is certifiable (psst, as in crazy). Hmmm...let's see who is crazy.
I want to be invisible. I do guerrilla warfare. I paint my face and travel at night. You don't know it's over until you're in a body bag. -- Ralph Reed
I want you to just let a wave of intolerance wash over you. I want you to let a wave of hatred wash over you. Yes, hate is good...Our goal is a Christian nation. We have a Biblical duty, we are called by God, to conquer this country. We don't want equal time. We don't want pluralism.
--Randall Terry, Founder of Operation Rescue
We're going to bring back God and the Bible and drive the gods of secular humanism right out of the public schools of America. -- Pat Buchanan addressing an anti-gay rally in Des Moines
I don't know that atheists should be considered citizens, nor should they be considered patriots. This is one nation under God. -- George Bush (the uniter)
Televangelist and biblical prophecy expert (self proclaimed) Jack Van Impe, had this to say about Pat Robertson...
And right now, the National Association of Evangelicals informs us that this man has done damage, and it could actually take the lives of some of the missionaries in South America because the news media in South America is bombarding this thing across the airwaves around the clock. God forgive him.
Not only that, but Mr. Robertson, you are pro-life, and yet you wanted the members of the Supreme Court to die last year, and now the president of Venezuela. We believe this book: Thou shalt not kill; Exodus 20, verse 13. And my Bible says that this is wrong, and I want to challenge you right now to change your ways. Because we as Christians do not need an Osami [sic] Bin Laden leading us.
And last but not least, Jerry Falwell and his infamous 9/11 accusation.
The abortionists have got to bear some burden for this because God will not be mocked. And when we destroy 40 million little innocent babies, we make God mad. I really believe that the pagans, and the abortionists, and the feminists, and the gays and the lesbians who are actively trying to make that an alternative lifestyle, the ACLU, People for the American Way, all of them who have tried to secularize America, I point the finger in their face and say: you helped this happen.
And the winner in the certifiable category is...not Paul Hackett.
