It was Abraham Lincoln who signed the Emancipation Proclamation that freed all the slaves BM. But it is also true that Washington personally freed his, only asking them to stay until after Martha's death to take care of her, which they did. So in a roundabout way, he was ahead of his time. lol

which bit could refer to sarcasm, a joke or seriousness?


I think this has already been debated, but not concluded.

Obama controlling the weather to win the election. Serious? Sarcasm? Joke? Delusion?

He freed his own personal slaves.. He was not the first president to free all of the slaves..  Abraham Lincoln  helped free the slaves..He introduced the 13th Amendment..This kicked in and took effect  months after Lincoln  was assassinated

If they are serious claiming  Obama did control the weather to win the election.. then I would say, they were seriously delusional

On the other hand, if it was a joke..I would say in return  - Yea sure Obama  stood out on the white house lawn, and preformed a storm dance

True. I just think people think he "caused" all the problems. When in reality most of the ones people seem to blame him for happened before him. Like Clinton said. No president in history could have cleaned up the mess we where in when he took office in only 4 years. In my opinion he's focusing on a long term fix even if the pill is a little harder to swallow than the short term band aid Romney seemed to plan on using.

But getting back to my OP. I don't care if or what religion my president is. But I do care if they put that in its proper place when it comes to decision making for a country that made of many religions. Bush did this to some degree. Just watch him answer questions about stem cell research. IMO He didn't know the science. Just what some religious peddlers say about it. This, in my mind anyway is especially scary in religions like morman and Scientology.

Man in suit!

Having read the Bible, I'd say God is clearly a hardcore "my way or the smite-way" conservative so he would vote Republican. Jesus was the rebellious liberal son so he would vote Democrat. The Holy Spirit voted Libertarian so weed would be legal. Satan voted for Roseanne Barr.

I much rather have a president that's consistent over the flip flop alternative.
This may be wandering from speculation about God, but is that really a virtue? Might it not be better in a Politician to be willing to admit that ideas that thety may have held before might not have worked as well as they'd hoped, and be willing to try something new? Isn't adaptability a virtue? I really don't udnerstand why admitting that it may be time to try something new is dismessed as Flip Flopping.

My senior year in public high school coincided with the 1984 election. Our local elections had several candidates who were completely unqualified and only ran to spread the word of Jesus through the Election Guide. Their pages were full of capitals, bold face and exclamation points saying things that you would normally hear from street preachers.

One of the Jesus freaks at school got into a screaming match with a bunch of students over one of these non-candidates, ending with "God will decide who will be the next County Director of Soil and Water Conservation! [or whatever it was]"

Someone said, "He will? God doesn't believe in democracy! He's a mother****ing Commie!"

And the laughter from (almost) everyone ended that discussion.
