Sen. Knotts: The devoutly hateful Christian

South Carolina Republican State Sen . Jake Knotts says he could "care less" after the Lexington County GOP where he lives voted 25-7 to censure him for his reference to President Obama and Nikki Haley, the Republican gubernatorial candidate, as unwelcome "ragheads". (Haley is an Indian-American). Knotts' enmity has been fueled by his expressed Christian values and his belief that Haley is getting a "free ride" from the media, telling a reporter: "have you ever asked her if she believes in Jesus Christ as her lord and savior and that he died on the cross for her sins? Have you ever asked that?" No reason to, Jake. But I do I have a question for him or anyone else: How can a so-called devout Christian be so hateful? Hmmm? Anybody?

With all due respect, Abe, where have you been for the last 2000 years? Take a peek at "Constantine's Sword" authored by James Carroll. My fellow Christians have heaped abuse on Jews since the founding of Christianity. Sen Knotts is merely the latest to take aim at non-Christians. ....It's the world we live in.

You're right, of course. Obviously, we are still living in the darkest of religious times. And will continue to do so.

I think the darkest of religious times involved hapless Spaniards being barbecued for reasons not always clear.

It might be safe to say this is the stupidest of religious times. And of course we all know who Jakey Knotts is now which was his intent from the get-go.
