Former basketball star, NBA commentator and Barack Obama supporter Charles Barkley ripped into “fake [Republican] Christians” on CNN this morning for their judgmental views about gays and other groups and beliefs deemed to be in defiance of Christian values. No argument here — intolerant religious purists are cut from the same cloth the world over, be they American or Middle Eastern — but Barkley is probably going to get a “chill out and shut up” phone call from an Obama campaign official, saying “don’t rattle the Obamacans!”
