looks down on religion.

The Right Wing Propaganda Machine is in hyper drive right now. (Right now, they're attacking Obama, as they think he'll be the nominee; don't worry, they'll be back at Hillary, like they have been for sixteen years, if she gets the nod.) But the Machine never fails to amaze me. Really. Look at how inconsistent their attacks have been.

First, they say Obama is a Muslim, which, for some reason, constitutes an attack in and of itself. To them, there's something inherently wrong with being a Muslim. They hate Muslims, and they are going to insist that Obama is labeled a Muslim, even though he isn't and it shouldn't matter anyway.

Next, they say Obama's CHRISTIAN pastor is unacceptable; he said terrible things that aren't patriotically correct. Fall in line with Big Brother, gang up on Obama, and don't forget the pitchforks.

Finally, they say Obama's an elitist who looks down on people of faith.

I got it! So, he's a Muslim AND he's a Christian with bad, bad pastor AND he's a hardcore atheist who looks down on people of faith. Cool! Don't forget telling people he's also a militant Buddhist (which is an oxymoron).

The sad part is, there are millions of Americans who will believe those three things simultaneously! It's probably the same people who think that global warming is just a natural cycle that occurs over hundreds of thousands of years, even though they think the world is only 6000 years old.
