Chief Executive Preacher Man

     When I interviewed Dr. Bentley all of those times, it never occurred to me to ask him questions about religion, since he was a candidate and then Governor-Elect...but here's what he said in the Dexter-King Church Monday afternoon:

“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.”

Read the entire story in the Birmingham News or elsewhere.
And no apology or retreat.
And this wasn't even after a full day in office...just an hour or so.

[UPDATE: Governor Bentley apologizes.]


  1. Seems like Governor Doctor Doctor Bentley has contracted a severe case of foot-in-mouth disease.

    Physician, heal thyself.

  2. He is simply going too far. This man should not be allowed to hold office and he should be impeached immediately. No government official should ever promote a religion and they should NEVER tell the people they lead how to worship, when to worship or who to worship.

  3. excellent post! thanks a lot for sharing..

  4. "If anyone from other religions felt disenfranchised by the language, I want to say I am sorry. I am sorry if I offended anyone in any way," he told reporters Wednesday after meeting with leaders of other faiths in his new office."

    You did offend, Gov. Dr. Dr. No ifs, ands or buts about it.

  5. Thank you very much, for this useful information.
