  1. I read that piece by Driscoll. What nonsense. Basically if you don't support Christian privilege (or other assorted nonsense) then you don't "know god".

    Two problems with that: First, I "know god" as a former believer and have read enough (more than most Christians probably) to reject much of Christianities teachings. Mine or Obama's rejection of such things does not automatically default to ignorance. Second, let's say Obama truly had no idea about any of Christianity's teachings. So what? Last I checked, that was not a requirement for the job...

    1. ReasonBeing -- Anyone who thinks differently doesn't "know god", basically. I've encountered this assumption among more than a few fundamentalists, sadly.
