(Newser) – Sarah Palin was on the O’Reilly Factor last night talking about the National Day of Prayer, but she went a bit further than her usual party line of calling America a Christian nation. “I think we should keep this clean, keep it simple, go back to what our founders and our founding documents meant,” she said. “They’re quite clear that we would create law based on the God of the Bible and the 10 commandments, it’s pretty simple.”

What would she say to non-believers who were brought up in a different culture, O’Reilly wondered. “Yay, welcome to America, where we are tolerant and you have a freedom to express whatever faith, you can participate peacefully in whatever religion that you choose, that’s what America is all about,” she said, but added that our courts should respect “what the Judeo-Christian beliefs are, too. It’s mutual tolerance.”

I used to not be able to get enough of her simply because of how hilariously stupid she is. Now every time I see her face I just get depressed thinking about how stupid the people in this great nation must be to keep feeding her.

Palin is so stupid luckily she has great boobs. Speaking about God's greatness just displays her idiocy and fundamentalist blindness. But she has great boobs. Can she even read?

As usual the far right trying to put words in the founding fathers mouths and rewrite the documents that made this country. The Treaty of Tripoli says is best. "As the Government of the United States of America is not, in any sense, founded on the Christian religion; as it has in itself no character of enmity against the laws, religion, or tranquility, of Mussulmen; and, as the said States never entered into any war, or act of hostility against any Mahometan nation, it is declared by the parties, that no pretext arising from religious opinions, shall ever produce an interruption of the harmony existing between the two countries." Yeah, that is but a brief exert from the document that John Adams signed and read aloud to the nation. This is in no way a Christian nation. The founding fathers in every sense went through painstaking steps to ensure that it in no way ever became one. It is time to stop the absurd assertion that it is.
