Gag Me with a Spoon !!

You've GOT to be kidding me....

From the Washington Post Propaganda desk.

The quiet impact of Obama’s Christian faith

Here is just some of the apologetic BS: 

Obama did not grow up in a religious household and became a practicing Christian as an adult. He has written more extensively about his spiritual awakening than almost any other modern president, addressing it in two books before he was elected to the White House and in more than a dozen speeches since.

His faith had been central to his identity as a new kind of Democrat who would bring civility to the country’s political debates by appealing to Republicans through the shared language of their Judeo-Christian values.

To understand why he so deeply believed that he could close that gap and why he largely has been unable to do so, it is essential to understand his faith and how it shapes his politics. That faith also explains why he has not given up.

In his final year in office, Obama hopes to work with Republicans and evangelical Christians on criminal justice reform. He will make a renewed push on gun control and the closing of the U.S. military prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

And these are his  Judeo-Christian values?!

“He’s trying to figure out how to get a lot of these big things he cares about out of the box of political opportunism and into a more humanistic space.” 

And that's his problem - humanistic values not religious ones.

Hold your nose and read the rest.

I get home delivery of the print edition of the WaPo.

This batshit was the lead story yesterday.

I threw the newspaper in the trash.

However, I think that I'll go check the comments online.

There are so many comments (4500+) that the page won't load.

When I read the article yesterday, I felt revolted, and could not finish reading. Then I went to the comments, which as far as I could see where as bad as the article. No doubt that there must been some rational ones among the 4000+ comments, but I could not go through with them either. Too depressing.

There seems to be only darkness at the end of the tunnel. Sorry folks!

But ... Merry Christmas to all of you!

No kidding.

I doubt that any turn-around is coming. **sigh**
