Errant Hypocrisy Makes Bill Sad

Today on the Political Insider:

Cain: The role of Muslims in American society is for them to be allowed to practice their religion freely, which is part of our First Amendment. The role of Muslims in America is not to convert the rest of us to the Muslim religion. That I resent. Because we are a Judeo-Christian nation, from the fact that 85 percent of us are self-described Christians, or evangelicals, or practicing the Jewish faith. Eighty-five percent. One percent of the practicing religious believers in this country are Muslim. [editor emphasis]

Herman Cain is from Georgia and is displaying either crass hypocrisy or an amazing unawareness of what he’s saying.

I will remind my reader that a fundamental tenet of Evangelical Christian sects is to actively promulgate their message to nonbelievers. If you’re not saved, you’re going to hell, and there’s no middle ground.

It always amazes/depresses me when politicians can say things like this with a straight face. Like the birther movement, you’re either ignorant or a hypocrite. There’s no middle ground.

    It is obvious he doesn’t really know much about the Muslim religion or his own, as when practicing most religions requires going out and sharing it with others who are not of that religion. I really hope this guy doesn’t get votes, but we do live in the south and he does seem like a perfect choice if what is wanted in the white house is someone who doesn’t do his own research and does what is expected of him by his superiors. without question.
