From PZ Meyer:
Pete Stark has been raked over the coals by the Christian Seniors organization...
What are they saying?
"It is sad but not surprising that the current Congress has produced this historic first—one of its members has denied God," said CSA Executive Director James Lafferty. "The liberals in Congress want to throttle any school child who bows his or her head in prayer, but they want to establish a right for liberals to bash Christians and berate God around the clock.
Throttle children? Yeah, go there. Last time I looked it wasn't the liberals who were casting stones.
But then they follow with establishing a right. A right to what? Bash Christians. You mean...I don't have the right now? Crap! I'm in trouble! Why didn't someone tell me we had established a version of the Brit Blasphemy Laws! I'm outta here.
Back now. I checked the Constitution and Bill of Rights. They are both in one piece still. I guess Gonzales is busy at the moment.
"It is time for religious members of Congress to push back. A simple declaration of a belief in God by members of Congress on the House floor will be greatly informative for the American people. Members who wish to expand could use the 'special orders' portion of the House calendar to elaborate but a simple "I believe in God" will suffice.
Ah, the Religious Test...that always ends well.
That would be the day that religious Americans stood-up to the liberal bullies who are so determined to use the power of government to silence prayer and every other religious expression of free speech.
Bullies? One guy, a Unitarian, says he doesn't believe in a god...and they need to lead a revolt against the bullies. Show us prayer being silenced. Is it in school? You can pray there. You can't make people pray, you can't make it an official act of school. You can't force the 10 Commandments down people's throats. Your churches can't officially push candidates.
Is that the problem?
Are those nasty bully not letting you bully people? Huh, Sport?
This is as rich as that Republican video from the Republicans getaway last year (Before things went South for theme electorally.). You know, where they were the brave Rebel Alliance fighting the evil Democratic Empire. This from the party in the majority at the time. They made Pelosi Vader, when they had the mechanical man in the VP post. Come on!
Conservatives and Christians. Come on!
