A faith based missile defense system...

A faith based missile defense system... now that's what we really need. Of course, considering the current state of the necessary technologies, that's what we already have. [From Greg Restall]

Isn't there some old saying about the way to overtake an enemy country is to send in plenty of bombs and bibles? Whatever isn't destroyed by one thing will be destroyed by the other.

I told you this would happen and you did not believe me.

The president has gone fully WACKO! This is what happen when you elect a president who shows clear signs of brain damage. You drink enough booze, snort enough cocaine and this is what happens.

What else do you expect from a faith-based presidency?

Um... I hope that y6^3 understands that the Slate article was satire.

Aside from that, I am a man of faith... so I have no problems with faith-based initiatives... nor, for that matter, careful gov't involvement in said initiatives.

I just think that Bush is an idiot, and the Slate article was a hoot.

*sigh*

Some day we'll have a president that can really pull it off well (I'm taking donations... ).

Why not deploy a faith based missile defense system. It has about the same probability of working as the other missile defense shield. For the uninformed, that would be zero, zipsky, zilch.

How about a faith-based judicial system?

The article was clearly a satire. My marriage (number 1) was faith based. My divorce was state based.
