Easter

So Carville says:

“Mr. Richardson’s endorsement came right around the anniversary of the day when Judas sold out for 30 pieces of silver, so I think the timing is appropriate, if ironic.”

Does anyone else find this slightly offensive?

I think it would be a bit odd to compare any politician to Jesus Christ. Regardless of religious beliefs. But the Clintons? Geez. I'm smelling desperation.

I'm trying to convince my family to attend a Unitarian church with me on Easter morning. Husband D. and daughter D. are game. Son D is resolutely against the idea. He wants to go to "the same church we've always gone to." He's quite insistent. So, I guess that the Methodist service will have to do.

Growing up in a military family, we switched *everything* every few years: cities, schools, homes, religions. As a result, every few years, I get antsy to switch something - anything. Evidently, son D. does not feel this same itch.

Change is hard...religion was the one thing on the list you made that we didn't change every two years. Still clinging to it like a lichen to a rock.

Gee--I didn't hear the carville quote. That's hideous.

Happy Easter to you and the family!

Carville should be ashamed of himself . That is just terrible.

our kids are used to going from church to church .... although I think we've finally found the two we prefer .... one Methodist, one Episcopal ...

I normally like Carville but I'm disliking him more and more lately. That remark was awful and uncalled for.

We moved often growing up, too, and I SO KNOW that antsy feeling. I get to feeling a bit clausterphobic if I don't get to make some kind of sizable change every so often.

I take no offense in what Carville said. It was nasty for sure, but what else is politics? He wasn't comparing anyone with Jesus, but Judas.

The whole Clinton camp is what is really pissing me off. She's single handedly destroying any chance at all the Democrats have of reaching the white house. All her actions are now proof positive she's only in this for her own personal glory. I'm truly ashamed I help her reach the senate.
