Joe Lieberman is an ass
I caught this flipping channels yesterday. Joe Lieberman opines on faith in America on Meet The Press:
The fact is that in the first American document, the Declaration of Independence, the founders of our country said that they were forming the new government to secure the rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness that they saw as the endowment of our creator. So this government, this country was not neutral about God right at the outset. One, accepting that there is a creator, so our existence here is not accidental. And secondly, that as a result of the creation, we have an inherent unity. We are all equal. We have equal opportunity for those rights. We are a country based on a vision, a belief in creationism. And part of that is not only the humans, who were created on the sixth day, but the but the natural Earth.
I’ve not been much of a Lieberman basher, but that is quite the statement. We’re united by the complete denial of scientific evidence and rationality? That’s a bit scary.
