Alabama Governor: Only Christians are my Brothers 
Alabama Republican Governor Robert Bentley said in a Martin Luther King Jr. Day message Monday that he does not consider Americans who do not accept Jesus Christ as their savior to be his brothers and sisters.

"There may be some people here today who do not have living within them the Holy Spirit," Bentley said shortly after taking the oath of office, according to the Birmingham News. ''But if you have been adopted in God's family like I have, and like you have if you're a Christian and if you're saved, and the Holy Spirit lives within you just like the Holy Spirit lives within me, then you know what that makes? It makes you and me brothers. And it makes you and me brother and sister."

''Now I will have to say that, if we don't have the same daddy, we're not brothers and sisters," he continued. "So anybody here today who has not accepted Jesus Christ as their savior, I'm telling you, you're not my brother and you're not my sister, and I want to be your brother..."

Seriously, what practical effect does him saying this have? Not really any I can see. Is he going to incarcerate jews and buddhists or something?

I think he expressed a fairly basic common theological position a little clumsily, but the ruckus it has stirred up is frankly overblown.  You don't have to be someone's brother to govern them effectively.

Yeah, sounds like he was just expressing his faith clumsily.

I grew up in Alabama during the George (and Lurleen!) Wallace years. Nothing surpises me.

Alabama is still a strange place. I get almost daily Bible scriptures and uber-conservative Tea Party rants from my relatives who screw around like hot monkeys and live on disability checks for vague 'back troubles'.

What an unfortunate attitude.  Why should this be acceptable from a "Christian" when it is roundly feared and condemned when it comes from a Muslim?

Well, it's not only down South, or even a regional thing in terms of disabilities:

There are loads of welfare and drug-dependent people in Holland who sit in cafe's all day smoking pot until they can't see straight.

And in the Soviet Union, alcoholism is a huge problem with people of all ages (including kids as young as 7,  because there's no drinking age.)   In fact the problem is so bad that the Russian govt. is (or was) considering a drinking age. Naturally, if the problem has gone on for this as long as it has, it will be hard to pass it. (Saw this on BBC World News sometime last year.)


Alabama is still a strange place.
  Hell with that, man...the world is a strange place!

Uhm... yeh. 

I guess the point I was making was that there are people all over who leech off the systems in place in their respective parts of the world, and not just in the 4 corners of America.   

And w\regard to me saying that the world is a strange place..I think that's a given by now.  There's somedays I wake up and the first thing I ask myself is, "what the H is gonna' happen on today's world stage"? 

And then I turn on the news, and get my answer.... Buggedout

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
