It's nice to see that there's at least one — or, possibly, a dozen-ish — Republican presidential candidates who's not afraid to come out and admit to holding the same beliefs as the vast majority of his voter base. What you're about to see takes some real courage…
"I'm not ashamed to admit that I'm a Christian, but you don't need to be in the pew every Sunday to know there's something wrong in this country when gays can serve openly in the military but our kids can't openly celebrate Christmas or pray in school."
Finally! A genuine crusade!
I'm not ashamed to admit that I'm not a Christian, but that's probably because, as an atheist, I lack the sense of moral right and wrong that Jesus imbued in our Holy Constitution. I have no sense of shame. I have no sense of anything that could be construed as a human emotion. Still, even I am aware of the deplorable conditions in which the faithful have been forced to live in this country since Barack Obama took over.
Can you even imagine how awful it must be to have to sit idly by and watch as other people — "people" who do not share your somewhat narrow beliefs concerning sexuality and humanity — get to do things and live lives? Openly! As though they were not teetering on the precipice of eternal hellfire! Or having to pray to your god under your own volition instead of as a public mandate? It makes me cringe to even think about it. And yet it's the secular liberals who are all "It's morally wrong to torture other human beings."
And they don't even see the irony in that.
