Default Politicans are dumb-asses everywhere...even in Alabama

Click here for the entire story First day in office:

BIRMINGHAM, Alabama Alabama Gov. Robert Bentley told a church crowd just moments into his new administration that those who have not accepted Jesus as their savior are not his brothers and sisters, shocking some critics who questioned whether he can be fair to non-Christians.

"Anybody here today who has not accepted Jesus Christ as their savior, I'm telling you, you're not my brother and you're not my sister, and I want to be your brother," Bentley said Monday, his inauguration day, according to The Birmingham News.

The Anti-Defamation League on Tuesday called Bentley's remarks shocking.

"His comments are not only offensive, but also raise serious questions as to whether non-Christians can expect to receive equal treatment during his tenure as governor," said Bill Nigut, the ADL's regional director.

Speaking at Dexter Avenue King Memorial Church after the official inaugural ceremony, Bentley told the crowd that he considered anyone who believed in Jesus to be his brothers and sisters regardless of color, but anyone who isn't a Christian doesn't have that same relationship to him.

.
.
.
The official with the Anti-Defamation League, which fights discrimination against Jewish people, said it sounded like Bentley was using the office of governor to advocate for Christian conversion.

"If he does so, he is dancing dangerously close to a violation of the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, which forbids government from promoting the establishment of any religion," Nigut said.

While I think this is wrong, or not "pc" I find it interesting how the media left out some of his comments or the continuation thereof.

"If the Holy Spirit lives in you that makes you my brothers and sisters. Anyone who has not accepted Jesus, I want to be your brothers and sisters, too," Bentley said

"Anybody here today who has not accepted Jesus Christ as their savior, I'm telling you, you're not my brother and you're not my sister, and I want to be your brother

He was addressing a church and this was not his inauguration speech but the picture in the article was from this. Interesting.

Again, I dont agree with this but the spin to make it worse than it appears is ridiculous.

I also want to point out that the first amendment to the constitution is a restriction of the Federal Government and not a restriction to the Governor of a state or the state itself.

The states most certainly can establish a religion and several have done just that in the past.

Gee, he sure fucked the non-Christian voters that helped place him in office. As Governor, he is a servent of the people; all the people, not just the Christian ones.

Not a big deal. More of the same; making Christians STFU and the country going to shit because of it. The U.S. has turned its back on God and we will pay for that.

Because he is governor he has lost his freedom of speech?
Presidents and other political figures in the past said that and more. Do you think that the muslim would call you or I a brother?

So we are now a nation of one religion? If you are not in the Jesus club, you're not an American?

If you are not a Christian you can be American. No problem. Just stop telling me and other Christians to STFU all the time. Christians shouldn't have to worry so much about talking about God or the Bible out of fear of being sued.

This case is a perfect example. The guy publicly states his faith as a Christian and they threaten to sue him. If that's not "STFU", what is??????
