Round One – West Sectionals 5 v. 12

The 2009 Preposterous Statement Tournament (not to be confused with the Common Man Dan Cole’s Preposterous Statement Tournament) rolls on. You can follow the tournament by using the 20 Times Around the Block Preposterous Statement bracket. Make your pick for a winner! A complete list of the statements can be found here.

Which statement is more preposterous?

5. Commenting on the Obamas’ marriage, “Only now are we discovering what a functioning marriage between equals actually looks like.”–Stacy Schiff

12. If Christian and religious Liberals take over and begin to dominate the theology of Evangelical Christianity, then Democracy is doomed.—Blue Collar Todd

When will the preposterousness stop? It’s all over the place with the strange and bizarre comment from Stacy Schiff fawning over the loving marriage the Obama’s seem to have. For her it is a historical moment. March 15, 2009 was the day the world began to discover what a functioning marriage between equals looks like! Never before had their been one. And of course, 4-time preposterous statement nominee Blue Collar Todd gives another unwarranted blunt assertion connecting liberal theology with the eradication of democracy. Sorry, Athens. Without conservative evangelical theology you would have never invented democracy!
