Quote of the Moment: Freudian Slip?

From an ABC News story about the Perry vs. Romney controversy. Pastor Robert Jefferies siding with the Evangelical Perry over the Mormon Romney … sorta …

“Do we want a candidate who is skilled in rhetoric or one who is skilled in leadership? Do we want a candidate who is a conservative out of convenience or one who is a conservative out of deep conviction?” Jeffress said. “Do we want a candidate who is a good, moral person — or one who is a born-again follower of the lord Jesus Christ?

    Tacit admission that you can’t be both, I think.

      We’ve already seen on some comments from some believers (on a couple of threads over the last few months) that they have no real morals of their own, just what their invisble friend tells them today. And if that invisible friend tells them tomorrow to kill people, then those commenters would be OK with that.

    I’ll take A.

    Oh, it was supposed to be a rhetorical question?

    While I am sure he meant to say “Do we want a candidate who is ONLY a good, moral person…”, this is totally hilarious.

    It wasn’t a slip it was intentional. Romney is a Mormon and Mormons are not orthodox. This says more though about the view of tolerance from the conservative Christians than who should be President. There is no tolerance either you accept their view of Jesus or you pay the price once they have gained power. This goes beyond Romney it will be applied to Catholics, liberal Christians, Jews and we will have religious persecution sanctioned by law just as we have institutionalized discrimination against gays in those states that bar by law same sex marriage.

    This is one time Atheists should come to the defense of the 1st Amendment and that a persons faith has no bearing on their qualification to seek a public office. It is a good weapon to use to show the intolerance of the religious right and their threat to personal liberty.
