Romney needs a dictionary

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

In this video discussing last week's speech, Mitt Romney demonstrates that he has no idea what the word "nonbelievers" means:

"There are a couple of things people have pointed out: why didn't I mention nonbelievers? Well, I thought that was assumed within the general purview of faith. But, you know, that doesn't bother me."

By definition, of course, nonbelievers are those without belief (or "without faith," if you prefer). It sounds as if Romney is suggesting one of those "atheists-have-faith-too" arguments; I usually reply to that inanity with some variant of these words:

"...if atheism is a religion, then not collecting stamps is a hobby and baldness is a hair color." (DarkSyde at Unscrewing the Inscrutable)
