Newt, Huckabee, Religious Nuts Perfect Together

Newt Gingrich and Mike Huckabee spoke at a a "Rediscovering God in America" forum at a church in Virginia Beach, Va. They both attempted to mock President Obama's claim that he is a citizen of the world, something then candidate Obama remarked in Berlin. Newt said, "I am not a citizen of the world. I am a citizen of the United States because only in the United States does citizenship start with our creator." Huckabee said he was concerned about Obama's recent comment in Egypt that one nation shouldn't be exalted over another. Huckabee proclaimed that, "The notion that we are just one of many among equals is nonsense.... The United States is a "blessed" nation, he said, calling the American revolutionary defeat of the British empire "a miracle from God's hand." Huckabee pointed to the availability of abortion, the spread of gay rights, and attempts to remove religion from school history books as threats to Christian values, and went on to claim the same sort of miracle-working was at hand in the defeat of California's gay marriage amendment. Huckabee suggested voters "did it because some things are right and some things are wrong and they had to make a stand.''
I got news for both Newt and Huckabee. They are only in the US because by chance they happened to have been born here. Neither of them chose to be a citizen of the US. These two men display what I call the "arrogance of Americans." They think they are better than any other being on the planet because they happened to be born in the US. They feel God has blessed this nation and that every other nation in the world is at the US's beckon call to follow in our footsteps because this is God's will. No other nation on earth is blessed by God like the US.
Newt and Huckabee need to get a life and realize we are not the only people on the face of the earth. I am glad to live in the US, but I realize there is not a DAMN THING I DID TO GET HERE! I was just lucky enough to have been born here!

Damn, I am so sick of this religious crap ... when are people going to get their freaking heads out of their arse and stop invoking a fictitious being? America is no more "blessed" or cursed than any place else.

Nazi Germans invoked Christ, as well as The Klan, and the guys who blow up abortion clinics ... bunch of scary freaks if you ask me! They have the same thought process that Muslim extremists have!

Such small-mindedness! I'm sure God is thinking the same thing as these morons! RIght! I remember something in the Bible saying you will be surprised who actually gets into Heaven and who does not! (Paraphrased of course).
