There's nothing wrong with religion, I think. If the man is religious, great for him, so long as he doesn't seek to impose his erligion on others. But don't buy into the spin doctoring in this thread. The picture I posted presents images of Christ, but has nothing to do with Christianity. Instead, it has a great deal to do with Bush's rhetoric, which takes almost any position and does the same hatchet job on it. You'd think people would be wise to it by now.<br><br>

yeah, i wrote a whole chapter in my textbook that deals with information literacy and provides a bunch of strategies for searching the internet more effectively. those of us who know how to really use google are so much more efficient with our time than those who are clueless, aren't we? with over 4 billion pages indexed, who has time to sift through generic searches? <br><br><br>--<br>one of the penalties for refusing to participate in politics is that you end up being governed by your inferiors. -Plato

it doesn't mock jesus; it mocks dubya for the way he uses jesus.<br><br>I didn't come away with that impression- to me, the ad is a send up of (or, for Matt's sake, the cartoonist's perceived notion of) how the Bush camp is running the smear ads against Kerry. And therefore, if Jesus were alive and running for some sort of office, these are the negative slants the Bush advertisers might impose upon him and his philosophy...<br><br>Anyway, *I* thought it was funny, and I consider myself a Christian. Heck, I don't get offended when I see Jesus walking around in South Park hosting his own talk show either...<br><br>[color:red]C'mon...you know me.</font color=red>
that's exactly what i read -- how do you see that as mocking jesus and not dubya? and, of course it's funny.<br><br><br>--<br>one of the penalties for refusing to participate in politics is that you end up being governed by your inferiors. -Plato
