Good old Texas Christians. This is GWB's constituency.
They're not good.
They're not all old.
They're not all originally from Texas. (In fact, according to FOXnews.com, the girls were told by their "spiritual husbands" that the world outside the compound was the, well, outside world, therefore I'd hardly think that they think of themselves as Texans, which anybody who knows anybody from Texas, that is almost more important than being an American.)
They're certainly not Christians. They are the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (LDS). Just because "Jesus Christ" is in the name doesn't make them Christian. The mainstream LDS doesn't recognize them as being part of them either. Most mainstream Christian denominations do not consider the LDS to be a fellow Christian denomination. And the LDS does not consider and of the mainstream Christian denominations to be of equal value or correctness or stature as the LDS. The LDS says Christians are ok and will occupy part of heaven, but the male members of the LDS are in for a greater treat. They get to be gods of their very own planets one day, just like their big brother Jehovah is the god of this planet, and now Jesus, Jehovah's physical child with Mary (yes from actual sexual intercourse) having been the Savior for this world is now god of his own planet somewhere. The reason the LDS has always allowed many wives is because it is through copulation and propagation that the worlds that they'll be gods over will be filled. Only recently did the mainstream LDS change their minds about polygamy. In fact, only recently did they say that now whites could now join the LDS. Aren't they a cheery group. And, don't get me started on the Holy Underwear. Google it for yourself.
And as of GWB's constituency, even the Dixie Chicks (Texans) are embarrassed by this dud. I guess, I don't agree with anything you posted here. Oh well. No offense. Cheers.
