But Aren’t They?

I was listening to Rachel Maddow’s show last night, and I think she made a very salient point; while Mike Huckabee excelled at being the media darling candidate that never had a chance, now that he does have a chance and has the real spotlight on him, he’s a wee bit of a joke.

For instance, as an apparent jab at Mitt Romney through his religion, the Huckster asks in an upcoming article, don’t Mormons believe Jesus and the Devil are brothers?  My thought being, but aren’t they?

Okay, as long time readers will know, I have something of a soft spot for the big guy down below.  Still, technically, shouldn’t anyone who buys into the whole Christian mythos kinda have to admit that Jesus and Satan are brothers?  Half-brothers at least.  I mean, Satan was an Angel after all, and apparently one of God’s favorites.  Further, God did make Satan, but then cast him out of heaven.

It’s like, you have two sons one who turns out to be the male version of Mother Teresa, while the other becomes a crack dealer.  The crack dealer’s still your son at least biologically.  I guess you could disown him or something but still.

But I also have this question here: What the hell does this have to do with running a country?  Really!  Believing Jesus and Satan are brothers has absolutely no bearing on the deficit, the looming recession, the problems in Iraq, nor National Defence.

And people doubt me when I say religion and politics don’t mix.
