More proof that lefties and Christian fundamentalists are a lot alike

The Democrats system of delegates was set up in order to prevent anyone from being made to "feel bad." Everyone running in a Presidental primary gets a delegate, whether anyone actually votes for them or not. The Dems don't want to hurt anybody's feelings or make them feel left out. Ahhh, how sweet.

Chinese Christian co-worker, an independent, just told us that she voted for John Edwards (by absentee ballot, before he pulled out of the race) because she was afraid that nobody else would vote for him. Cuz,like, they were all voting for Hillary and Obama. She said, "I gave him a sympathy vote." She also felt bad for him because his wife has cancer.

In the sense of the Fred Phelps/"God hates fags" crowd, I agree with you about the similarities with lefties. Totalitarian A, meet Totalitarian B. But as someone who identifies himself as a Christian, I have to ask myself, who gets to define what a "fundamentalist Christian" is? Am I, for merely being a Christian, although I haven't been to Church in years, a fundamentalist? Are southerners who attend Church every Sunday fundamentalists? Or are the Fred Phelps's of the world fundamentalists? Who gets to move the "fundamentalist" goalpost? That's my primary concern. I just get testy when all people of a certain faith are lumped together, like when people say things like, "Evangelicals will never vote for a Mormon." I'm both conservative and a Christian. But I don't want to be lumped together with the Fred Phelps's of the world by atheist, God-hating, separation of Church and State activists. Nor do I want to be lumped together with lefties. I know I'm making a mountain out of a molehill, but I hope I made some sense nonetheless.

When are women going to start giving sympathy fucks?

Can I say that? Well, I just did.

Well Chinese co-worker has very high standards. Like one time I got a blister on my foot on the way to work. When I got to work I used a band aid from the medicine chest. Co-worker saw me getting one, she works by the medicine cabinet, and said. "I didn't know that you could use a work band-aid for that."

I said "you mean that I can only use a city property band aid for a wound aquired at work, I can't use it for my blister?"

"Yes," she said, meaning it. She is like that about everything. She thinks she has thought crimes too. That is very high standards for human behavior and she has it. It's over board and it's weird and the liberals are like that too.

Ric, I can't tell you how many sympathy fucks I've given men, but they are legion. Most women do it a lot.

So I need to develop pathetic?

Seriously, n., "fundamentalist" is a word which now means "I dislike and you should too", generally in the media. It is the religious version of "right wing" in politics.

You'll seldom see any domestic politician described in the MSM as "left wing".

And there isn't really an opposite for "fundamentalist", is there?

So relax- a fundamentalist Christian (or Moslem) is one the speaker disagrees with. It now has no other meaning.

The good and the bad of it is that with humans there is a fine line between the most brilliant/stupidest, competent/inept, beautiful/ugly, attraction/disgust or whatever comparative range and combinations there might be.

And there is reality/perception/delusion and so much more.

Regarding sympathy. Woe is me.
