You must be reading some of those dumbed-down books so sought after in some parts of the country. What chapters does your text cover Creationism & the anti-Global Warming materials? LOL

So sorry to have to break this to you, but the Catholic Church veered to the right a couple of decades ago. Why else would GWB have felt comfortable reaching out to the Pope to push the Republican agenda? BTW ... who are you to speak for God? Do you have a direct hotline ... you'd fit in quite well in some other parts of the world. They all think they're doing God's work, too. Tell you what, Cupcake, I'll match MA student's achievement with yours anyday. But you keep on living in your dream world. You seem really comfortable there.

Ha ha ha. Already making excuses why the fools you choose to run won't make it with mainstream America??? Your fault. Your party chose to unite the unholy trinity of the far religious right, the racists, & corporations. So far, looks like only the corporations have anything to show for it. But that was really all they cared about. Time for you to take a clue. You've been used.
