If you live in Alabama, you better accept Jesus--otherwise, you"re going to be seen as an outsider.

I`m not even mad. I`d be more than willing to leave Alabama.

I`m in Alabama, and I know as many atheists, agnostics, and other "non-believers" as I do "born agains". Most Christians I know are the normal kind that don`t go crazy with it. It`s just that the "born agains" are a lot louder, lol.

jtrebowski: And you are omitting the fact that the Governor said it in a black church, while speaking to other Christians.

Now what was that again about "uninformed" ?

@kpres: No....you`re a conservative crybaby, because you had to omit the word "only" to make your uninformed point.

Christians call other christians "brother" and "sister". Liberals go nuts.

Muslims call other Muslims "brother" and "sister". Liberals don`t care.

Black people call other black people "brother" and "sister". Liberals don`t care.

Double standard much?

Of course, then there`s sane people like myself, who don`t give a poo if somebody calls other people they have something in common with there "brother" or "sister" and doesn`t include me. Then again, I`m not a Liberal crybaby.

The most shocking thing about the video was that the state elected a dermatologist. But then again, Alabama.

I`m from Alabama, and I`m an atheist. I was not offended by that, because it was just misinterpreted. Christians simply refer to other Christians as "brothers" and "sisters", and all he said was he wanted those who did not believe as he did to find god as he had. That`s it. People will read too much into anything.

As much as I tend to disagree with the religious in power have to say, a lot of that was taken out of context. What he originally said was meant to be accepting of black Baptists as well as white Baptists, though it could have been worded more carefully.

what`s all the hubub, bub?

I`m good with this. I don`t expect him to consider me his brother and I`ll kick his ass if he calls me his sister.

If I lived there, I would expect him to obay the rules of his office, but he doesn`t have to love me to do it.

"Ummmm....that`s not what he said at all."

What he actually said was if you are saved by Jesus, you are his brother or sister. If you don`t have the same father or mother as him, he isn`t your brother, so if you`re not a saved Christian, he`s not your brother.

He also went on to say that he is the Governor for ALL citizens of Alabama, and that he will be "color-blind."
