First, I don't believe that evolution and Christianity are mutually exclusive.
Then you wouldn't be a Christian in a lot of people's eyes.
Anyone is entitled to their own opinion, but most Christian Theologians (including all recent Popes) don't think they are in conflict:
In an October 22, 1996, address to the Pontifical Academy of Sciences, Pope John Paul II updated the Church's position to accept evolution of the human body:
"In his encyclical Humani Generis (1950), my predecessor Pius XII has already affirmed that there is no conflict between evolution and the doctrine of the faith regarding man and his vocation, provided that we do not lose sight of certain fixed points....Today, more than a half-century after the appearance of that encyclical, some new findings lead us toward the recognition of evolution as more than a hypothesis. In fact it is remarkable that this theory has had progressively greater influence on the spirit of researchers, following a series of discoveries in different scholarly disciplines. The convergence in the results of these independent studies – which was neither planned nor sought – constitutes in itself a significant argument in favor of the theory."
Secondly, my point is not what religious membership Obama has, or what church he attends, but what he really believes.
How is the media to report that? When Fox News say something along the lines of "Is Obama secretly a Muslim?" and the White House Press Secretary releases a statement "President Obama is a devout Christian." - what is the neutral media to cover? Are they to stage a crossfire interview where his personal religious views are questioned during a polygraph test and then a panel of two dozen representatives from as many Christian denominations takes a vote on whether or not he is?
Or should they just say: he's a Christian. Why? Because he says he is.
Sorry, I don't accept that Obama's word on what "he says his religious beliefs are" for reasons I have already explained in depth. If you want to believe him, that is up to you. I don't think I am picking on Obama in particular, since the same is true for most all other politicians who need to project a certain public image.
As for the media, I would prefer that they just report the facts as to his church memberships and attendances (including when he lived in Indonesia as a child) and don't try and tell me what his religious beliefs are.
Not in Illinois. It is not where the car is made, but who owns the company, and whether it is a union shop.
Could you give me a reference for that? I've googled it, but found nothing. I'm really interested in wacky laws and this would be a nice addition to my collection.
You know perfectly well that it is not a law, just a political truism. If you disagree, please discuss this with Obama's advisors who directed him to purchase the cars he did.
I didn't say it was a fact, but I said I would be willing to bet. Would you be willing to bet against me?
If you would define "almost all Harvard lawyers" and propose a method of data gathering, I would probably bet against you.
Unfortunately, I don't think there is way to settle that bet (that almost all 52 year old Harvard Law School grads have owned at least one car made by a foreign owned company in the last ten years). But I looked up the current market share of GM, Ford, and Chrysler in the US market, and it is about 45% market share (not 2/3 as you claimed).
