    Kasich didn't think that through too far.

    No one reads the bible to figure out what they think.

    They decide what they think then turn to the bible to find quotes to rationalize it no matter how ridiculous or hate filled or evil it is. snake handling, multiple wives, eating grasshoppers, burying your jewelry in the pig pen, slavery, stupid hair cuts... hacking on babies dicks...

    You can find quotes in there to back up everything from Jesus being a premature ejaculator (revelation 20:22) to killing your children (many verses)

    Ohio Governor John Kasich is definitely the right type of Presidential candidate that the GOP needs in 2016. He appears very independent and moderate and if he plays his cards right during the 2016 campaign, he could possibly be the next President. His vice Presidential running mate must also be independent and moderate. A presidential candidacy like this could help get the ball rolling on purging the GOP of the tea party and all the narrow minded bible thumping screwballs.

    ...... and all of them cherrypick out the verses that fit their pre existing real life situations and ignore the ones the choose to ignore. In other terms, they read it looking for 'divine' affirmation that what they've already made up their minds about is sanctioned by their imaginary sky daddy... anything that nullifies what they have already decided 'is right' is ignored.

    What? Who? I've never heard you say that before.

    Yeah, I forget where I read it, but it was in the last couple of days, that we, Ohio, is the 7th least religious state of the 50.

    So if Kasich was known for thumping, he wouldn't be governor.

    People want to own slaves, so they turn to the religious texts to pick out passages condoning slavery.
    People want to own women, so they turn to the religious texts to pick out passages condoning misogyny.

    I learned one thing from the bible. icon_evil.gif can be a good thing....And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For your is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.

    I love being delivered!!icon_wink.gif
