Bob McDonnell on the importance of being a Christian elected official

It is such a joy to watch this guy crash and burn.


I understand the real importance of being Christian elected official, that it's not just what you say but it's also the style of how you say it, and acting in a degree of civility.

From the Garden of Eden… we believe that marriage is between a man and a woman, and other forms of relationships are just not gonna be recognized in Virginia. 

— Former Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell, convicted of 11 counts of corruption after his "I have a broken marriage" defense failed.


Would YOU do something?

A deity without the power to act is not worthy of worship.  A deity without the interest to act is not worthy of respect.  A deity without the evidence of action is not worthy of belief.

Given the means and opportunity, would you intervene?  Wouldn't anyone?

Why?  Because Richard Dawkins retweeted it!
