Thanks for the screen capture info.

 

By the way, I'm ndrthrdr1 on YouTube (Under The Radar 1).  Was I a little harsh in my comment, shown in the screen capture posted by DoctorOfDisbelief?

The problem with Kerry is the influence he wields, even if he doesn't actually vote anti-choice, he might swing others into taking that step.

Priceless!

@Fil.  It happens a lot.    Take John Kerry.  He thinks abortion is wrong, but, would not try to make it illegal because it is not for him to decide what other people think about abortion.

@ LittleJohn Dellar

  Well yes, a fanatic fundie will always take religion over reality. "When one person suffers from a mental illness It's called insanity, when a million people suffer from a mental illness it's called religion." However I do believe that there are more moderate believers than out there, than there are the bat-shitters who will take religion over freedom. They are the ones that I have hope for, and the ones to which I was referring. I was a church boy once. And it's because I came to know the bible so well, and recognized the institutional hypocrisy and corruption, that I turned away from believing in impossible nonsense for no good reason.

Ezra, you put my thoughts in a nutshell. I couldn't care less about a legislator's personal religious views, if he is a good legislator and works for the good of ALL. The concept of separation of church and state is the US's gift to the world, and now we're losing that gift ourselves. The reason that free public education was started was in order to create intelligent voters who could think through political issues, but the Republicans and Fundies are trying to destroy that very system. Depressing, isn't it?

George, all the more reason to download his videos for critical review under "Fair Use". We could, of course, write to Google but my experience with that shower hasn't been too positive. If it's making money and isn't directly illegal in a way that can impact them, they don't give a fig!

Regaring fivethirty's Santa video - he's pretty much just repeating William Lane Craig's arguments from this video - "Is God Like Santa Clause?" (sic).
I don't think Craig's argument is that great either,  but he's getting applause from an appreciative audience.
