i was a bit offended by his closing. in the closing i believe he stated
'god bless america' and i particularly disagree with the possible next american president condoning god blessing america's citizens. i mean really,
thanks but no thanks 'mr. president'.
not to mention, i wonder how he is going to serve god and america, without getting the two intermingled. i mean which comes first? now of course he
said that serving america would come first but i just cant see it being the case. not to mention i am willing to bet that he is endorsed by a few
mormon based companies or contributors. for instance i know that he is endorsed by paul weyrich, who is a well known large player in the modern
conservative religious movement. source:www.boston.com...
so lets see, he's sponsored by religious people, he is a religious person, his family are religious people(he stated in the speech his father is/was
a mormon), so that leads me to believe that
in his presidency he will be serving religious people! (gasp!) holy freaking hell batman!
i also find it odd how he felt that he needed to give a speech dealing with his faith. i mean wouldnt it have served better to talk about world and
national issues for instance. i guess he must have felt that talking about his faith is more important than talking about homeland security,
terrorism, global warming, oil, the national debt, taxes, the fed interest rates, the economy, the environment, nuclear weapons, the energy crisis, n
korea, iran, iraq, and countless others.
another thing i find it odd how he has previously refused to discuss his faith, except of course now that he is falling behind in the polls, i guess
that he has found it mighty convenient now.
i dont know but mormons make me nervous, like all other religious people.
although that is just an opinion of course.
