RE: [humanism-174] Carter

Not to brag, but I have met Jimmy Carter. It was just a quick handshake, but I didn't wash that hand for weeks...
 
I was on the phone last night for quite a while, so I missed some of last night's program. CNN is running the whole series again this weekend.

I still think that Jimmy Carter was more of a Christian than all the other presidents since Kennedy combined, regardless of any ���shadowy shit��� he may have been involved with. At least he���s a man that believes in PEACE & tolerance. Someone please correct me if I���m wrong, but I believe that the only ���violent��� thing Christ was supposed to have done was the knocking over of a table.

Jimmy Carter showed some concern for the future of the Earth & all its inhabitants with his involvement in the Solar Energy Research Institute. He had solar panels installed on the White House grounds in 1979. Then that worthless ���conservative demigod��� Reagan had them all torn out.

Carter showed some good Christian forgiveness when he pardoned the draft dodgers. My ex-Brother-in-Law was one of them. Forcing 18 year-olds to go and fight a useless, meaningless war doesn���t seem very ���Christian��� to me in the first place.

Also, Carter has always shown concern for the less fortunate among us. I would think that qualifies as a very good trait, Christian or otherwise.

Well, Carter wasn't among my favorite presidents but on the CNN program they just showed an interview clip of him saying, "It is impossible for fundamentalists to ever admit that they are wrong, because they would be saying God is wrong."

 

Interesting.
