Just what we need … another Texas governor as president?

Of course, there are differences between Bush and Perry. For example, Bush mostly pretended to be a fundamentalist Christian, while Perry is a full tilt Dominionist, who believes that Christians have a God-mandated right and duty to rule all earthly institutions according to God’s law.

UPDATE: Jon Stewart on Rick Perry (including the resemblance to Dubya). Hilarious.

UPDATE 2: The Cristian Science Monitor has an enlightening article about an upcoming book about Rick Perry entitled “Adios Mofo: Why Rick Perry Will Make America Miss George W. Bush“. The book describes Perry as an “ideologue with scant interest or success in governing”.

    Dominionism: Let’s see. They are antiabortion because it takes a life. And prodeath penalty for all that don’t agree with them? Am I wrong or doesn’t the death penalty take a life? No hypocrisy there.

    I don’t want my children to be taught that kind of “Christianity.” I use quotes here because I think while their intentions may be good, no good will come of what they intend. Being pro-life means just that, including executions and war. Thou shall not kill, judge not…, let he who is without sin cast the first stone, love one another, all great values for living a good life, just hate to see them twisted. Next time someone tells you you’re going to hell, tell them to read Romans Chapter 2, and get back to you when they understand it.

    As a native Texan…believe me…you don’t want this guy. If you found Bush unfit to run a nation, this guy is a meaner (and dumber) version of Dubya.

    This guy Perry is Scary. Indeed, in comparison to Bush II, W is the smart one. For a full appraisal read Myerson in the Post…
