The Relative Comment

soothing waves of relativity

Herman Cain would really prefer it if you were a Christian

TRC is no fan of Herman Cain. We have already detailed why no one should vote for him and his fear of Muslims. The man embodies religious bigotry.

And he doesn’t even seem to mind letting people know. Here is Cain’s latest, from a speech at the Holy Land Experience (a Christian theme park whose exhibits include Jerusalem Street Market, Centurion Treats, and Pilate’s Judgment Hall).

Anyway. In this speech, Herman Cain discussed his cancer treatment:

He did have a slight worry at one point during the chemotherapy process when he discovered that one of the surgeon’s name was “Dr. Abdallah.”
“I said to his physician assistant, I said, ‘That sounds foreign–not that I had anything against foreign doctors–but it sounded too foreign,” Cain tells the audience. “She said, ‘He’s from Lebanon.’ Oh, Lebanon! My mind immediately started thinking, wait a minute, maybe his religious persuasion is different than mine! She could see the look on my face and she said, ‘Don’t worry, Mr. Cain, he’s a Christian from Lebanon.'”
“Hallelujah!” Cain says. “Thank God!”

God Forbid you encounter someone who is a) foreign, or b) of a different religious persuasion. I assume you are aware that were you to be elected president, you would be in regular contact with people who are not Christian, and not American?

He went on to conclude: “They don’t like the fact that I’m not afraid to say God Almighty Jesus Christ!”

Trust me. That’s not why we don’t like you. We don’t like you because you are a judgmental, self-righteous xenophobe.
