Robert Bentley and the Jews of Alabama

In a new feature we call Wednesday's News Today, we present Republican Robert Bently of Alabama:
"There may be some people here today who do not have living within them the Holy Spirit," Bentley said. ''But if you have been adopted in God's family like I have, and like you have if you're a Christian and if you're saved, and the Holy Spirit lives within you just like the Holy Spirit lives within me, then you know what that makes? It makes you and me brothers. And it makes you and me brother and sister."

Bentley added, ''Now I will have to say that, if we don't have the same daddy, we're not brothers and sisters. So anybody here today who has not accepted Jesus Christ as their savior, I'm telling you, you're not my brother and you're not my sister, and I want to be your brother."
Nice, right? Way to perpetuate the prejudices, Governor Bently.

Later he apologized, but I sort of think he meant what he said, when he sent it. I also think he was speaking about Muslims and atheists just as surely as he was speaking about Jews. Doesn't matter, though: I don't live in Alabama where his gentle bigotry might affect me, and honestly I'm pleased the dope doesn't consider me part of his family.
