ZOMG! Obama Didn’t Mention God!

Obama didn’t explicitly reference the Christian God in his thanksgiving speech!!!!

Maybe he didn’t want to exclude the millions who are Hindu, Muslim, Atheist, Wiccan, Agnostic and a thousand other colors of faith or non-faith. I mean, what is he – President of all Americans or National High Priest?

But oh boy are the loony-fundie Right butt-hurt about it. I mean, really butt-hurt.

Eventually the old white men in smoke-filled rooms will figure out that the loony-fundies are just another version of those whining about the “47%”, a movement that wants America to be about only them and to exclude everyone who doesn’t fit  – but that only really serves to make the Republican party unelectable because there are more of everyone else.  Right after that, those same old Mammon-worshipping men will realize they can gather an ungodly smaller amount of money and power unto themselves if the GOP is unelectable and the loonie-fundies will be quietly sidelined.

Most recently I was Editor in Chief of The Agonist from Feb 2012 to Feb 2013. My blogging began at Newshoggers and I’ve had the immense pleasure of working with some great writers there and around the web ever since, including at Crooks & Liars. I'm a late 40′s, Scottish ex-pat, now married to a wonderful Texan, with Honours in Philosophy from Univ. of Stirling, UK 1986. I worked most of life in business insurance industry (fire, accident, liability) including 12 years as a broker/underwriter/correspondent at Lloyd’s of London. Being from the other side of the pond, my political interests tend to focus on how US foreign policy affects the rest of the planet. Other interests include early and dark-ages British history, literature and cognitive philosophy/science.
