I’ve heard some very interesting religious/political debates here recently. Some people are right on the mark and some people–well, not so much. Some people like to discuss the truly important issues, like putting food on the table. Others like to concentrate on some very narrow ideological issues that don’t amount to a hill of beans in the grand scheme of things.
I would have to say that the best religious/political comment I’ve heard recently came from Mr. Lewis Black when he was on “Last Laugh ’07” on Comedy Central this past December:
We don’t even have the time to cover what George Bush did this year. Tell me? How does someone vote for him… twice? Look, I understand. I get it. You might vote for him the first time, but let me just say, for those of you out there, who may have voted for him twice: When you meet you maker, he’s gonna have some questions. He’s not gonna send you to hell, but he’s gonna have some questions.
I think that sums it up pretty well.
P.S. — There’s video of Mr. Black’s comments available from Comedy Central’s website, but I didn’t embed it because there’s quite a bit of bleeping going on… Feel free to Google it for yourself.
