Mr. Blackwell is a good friend of the country, as he has shown time and time again. He totally should have been the RNC head. He's one of five African American's in the RNC, but unlike Michael Steele, he is a true Republican.
Yesterday on Hardball, he takes Mr. Hitchens to task for his ridiculous comments that we are not a Christian nation. That is just laughable, I don't know where to start on that.
Here's some excerpts from this excellent performance by Mr. Blackwell.
BLACKWELL: Let me just ask you, let me just ask you, Christopher, do you think that the founders and the Pilgrims were not Christians?Whatever heathen, that is just dumb of you, and Mr. Blackwell just destroyed all your arguments. The Pilgrims were Christian, they landed on Plymouth Rock, Plymouth Rock didn't land on them, and they founded this Christian nation. The Founders were direct descendents of the Pilgrims I am pretty sure on that. Case closed.
HEATHEN: The Pilgrims were Christians.
BLACKWELL: If we`re talking about historical accuracy, let`s be forthright. You know it, and I know it, that in this country...
HEATHEN: No, no, the Pilgrims -- the Pilgrims are not the founders, my dear sir.
BLACKWELL: There is a separation -- there is a separation of church and state. There is not a separation of faith and politics.And there has never been the presumption that we run our day-to-day lives through a faithless prism when we make our decisions. We`re not told that we have to leave our faith at the public square`s edge.So, it is just flat-out nonsense to suggest that this country was built on anything other than an understanding of Judeo-Christian principles and precepts that give us the moral foundation that allows free market enterprise and the primacy of the individual in our political system, not the primacy of the state.I'm so glad he made that point, because that is the basis of the CLF, Conservatives Loving Freedom. The founding documents were all about ensuring free market principles to rule. They were all against government intervention and all for privatization of government services, for-profit religious schools, and Milton Friedman-type economics. Mr. Blackwell is smart, I'm not surprised he was able to make the same connections as I was. I don't know where to start on that heathen's comments, but they were all lies, I assure you of that, so I really don't need to go into it anymore.
HEATHEN: You can search in vain through the First Amendment to the Constitution to find any such reference. Or you could -- why don`t you try checking out...
HEATHEN: ... Thomas Jefferson`s version of the New Testament, for example, where he cuts out -- cuts out all references to the divinity of Jesus?
The only problem I have with Mr. Blackwell's comments is that he was tricked into saying there is a separation of church and state. That is just wrong, there's only a wall to keep government out of the Church, not the other way around. The Church can do whatever it wants, as long as it is Christian and conservative. But I will forgive Mr. Blackwell for this error because I really think that heathen tricked him with his heathenistic trickery.
Right on Mr. Blackwell!! You be da man!!.
