This could get interesting...

Fred Thompson inches closer to declaring a campaign for president.

You know, I doubt I'll just fall head over heels in love with Thompson (okay, just looked at his voting record -- ain't going to happen), but the enemy of my enemy is my friend effect at least adds some humor to the bleak realm of presidential possibilities. After all, James Dobson has already declared that Fred Thompson, a Church of Christ boy, is not a Christian. Does Mr. Dobson not realize how many CofCers make me feel nausous by substituting Focus on the Family for the denominational structures the CofC lacks? Are his CofC puppets also not Christians? Oh wait, it was just because Thompson isn't public enough in his expressive of faith. Because, Jesus didn't actually mean it when he said not to pray in public but to go shut yourself in your closet.

Oh, please, oh, please, can the Libertarians and the Green party get in on the debates this time around inside of getting the lock-up. Pretty, pretty please. With sugar on top.

Oh, come on. You know Jesus didn't mean ANYTHING he said. No no. It was all code for the fundies to discipher....

Ah, forgive me my mistakes. I see now. That scripture wasn't about prayer -- it was for the nasty gays who should just stay in their closets.

The sad thing is that I'm fairly confident I could find someone, someone who has twisted that passage to argue that. Oh, the Bible gymnastics!
