Glad, glad, glad

Why I am so glad that I am not American: Bill O’Reilly Interviews Atheist Lori Lipman Brown.



Where do they find these loudmouth anchors?

Back to the topic of why I am glad to be Canadian and not American:

● Canadian politicians mostly do not run on the God Platform. Even our obnoxious Regressive Conservative bully of a PM would not have made comments such as those made by Mitt Romney.
● O'Reilly is hypocritical when he whines that atheists 'whine'.
● O'Reilly shouts over Lori Lipman Brown, whereas Canadians wait for the other speaker to finish before speaking themselves. This is polite and it has the added benefit that the audience can actually hear what is being said.
● He rewrites history when he totally misrepresents the position of the Founding Fathers on separation of Church and State.

She makes good points, he troups out the usual ignorant fallacies of logic so beloved of religionists. He exemplifies what used to be referred to as "The Ugly American". Nowadays, they are merely referred to as Conservatives, Republicans, or Fundamentalists.

Here's what Lipman Brown does have to say – it is not whining.

Don't judge the rest of us on based on O'Moron!

● O'Reilly is hypocritical when he whines that atheists 'whine'.

Well, first of all, hypocrisy is O'Moron's MO for his entire life, secondly, he would have to know what it means to not do it!

Of course he shouts, how else can he hear himself speak!

● He rewrites history when he totally misrepresents the position of the Founding Fathers on separation of Church and State.

He would have to know history to rewrite it, and he would probably have to know how to read as well. I find it interesting that he stated he had all of Jefferson's writings, yet apparently he doesn't understand a thing Jefferson said!

Actually, Scott, I don't judge all Americans by the standards of one TV announcer, or by one moronic President, or obnoxious televangelists, etc.

When I learned that O'Moron is on FOX TV, that explained a lot!

I'm still glad to be Canadian, though, because Canadians are generally more polite, more humanist, and more secularist. Our Liberal PM refused to commit us to the invasion of Iraq, for example. Another (Conservative) politician was soundly defeated at the polls because he advocated public funding for all religious schools and the teaching of IDiocy.
