Rep. Pete Stark is *GASP* a Unitarian?!

March 18, 2007

The big news around the infidel blogosphere is that 35-year Kahl-ee-fornia representative Pete Stark let slip that he, uh, is a Unitarian and doesn’t actually believe in any higher power.  In his liberal district it hasn’t really cost him but the reaction nationally has been everything from ‘Finally!’ to ‘He’s the anti-Christ!’.

Well, he certainly is a non-Christ, which is very different from being an anti-Christ.  He may be a bit too liberal for my taste but I hope this is the beginning of a trend, where representatives would be free to state what they actually believe – if they feel like it – about god, instead of what their political strategists tell them will harness the largest demographic.  It would be nice to focus on things like the budget, the environment, and only getting into wars that have a real purpose for a change.

    …and only getting into wars that have a real purpose for a change.

    They all have a purpose to someone.

    We must appear schitzophrenic to some people outside our borders. One group wants to love people to death, and the other one—it also wants to love people to death.

    The consequence of having too much money, too much time, and too many weapons at ready disposal.

    Ideally, we’d see no mention of religion at all in politics.  It’s nothing more than a gimmick these days, and a tired one at that.  Those who spout it inspire nothing but distrust in me—there’s always an agenda, usually one to which I am opposed.

    That’s silly. If he was the Antichrist, he would have “666” tattooed on his scalp and at least 500 shares of Haliburton in his stock portfolio.

    I’m beginning to think that the ID-ers are partially right. There is a subspecies of Human Being that did NOT evolve from an ape-like ancestor, simply because they did not evolve at all.
