"Speaking on Martin Luther King Jr. Day in the very church where Dr. King once pastored, new Alabama Gov. Robert Bentley gave a speech in which he said that those who have not accepted Jesus Christ as their savior are not his 'brothers.'"

"'Now I will have to say that, if we don't have the same daddy, we're not brothers and sisters,' he said. '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'"

What a great message to the non-Christians who live in Alabama.

That's pretty damn sad. Might be the most pathetic thing i've ever heard from a politician. And the fact that it came from a governor makes it all the worse. But it's Alabama...i'm not surprised one bit.

Well, he's correct. I'm not his sister. I only have one sibling and he isn't the Govenor of Alabama And my daddy's name isn't Jesus.

Who the hell would want a jerk like that for family anyway?

Of course, we shouldn't want a jerk like that holding public office, either. If he'd have been alive during the Founding Fathers' time, he'd have been run out of town on a rail! They wouldn't tolerate that garbage for 5 seconds!

True. That's one family with so many issues and so much drama even Jerry Springer couldn't do them justice.

There should be no religion in government. If he gave this speech as part of his official duties as governor, he should have kept Jesus out of it. If he keeps this up, the good people of Alabama should initiate a recall action.

Like most liberal threads, his words are probably taken out of context.

Finally a non-liberal tells it like it probably is. I really thought his words were pretty good but then I am his brother the way he tells it.

We are all brothers whether believers or not.

One cannot choose to be uncreated by the creator. No matter how hard they try.

1. Alabama does not have a voter recall of the governor

2. He was elected most likely because he's a Christian. This is Alabama we're talking about
