If you can believe it, some of those on the far right don't like W

My dad found a nice letter from the Coalition for Traditional Values. Aparently, they are not too fond of the way the twins dressed for the big 40 million dollar bash last week. I couldn't find the letter on their web location. I did find a link to a PDF version on another blog. Here's a snip from the paper copy my father forwarded:

"We celebrate with you this week becuase Christ has allowed you to be His servant in this nation for another presidential term. But already there is a challenge to the biblical norms that you stand for, and it comes from within your very own family. This Thursday, your two daughters, Jenna and Barbara, will appear before the earthly world in attire that cannot be described in any sense as modest.

As you knon, dress and appearance are an imporatant reflection of our Christian values. "We are what we wear," as the saying goes, and according to this edict, your own daugters, bejeweled and bedecked in garments that plunge of neckline and cling of fabric, cannot be said to reflect the deeply-held believes of the tens of millions of "values voters" who sent you back to that highest office in the land...

...You have four years - a brief time only - to leave an imprint for righteousness upon this nation that brings with it the blessings of Almighty God. Do not risk offending Him in these early days of your second term by presenting forth your own daughters as Oholah and Oholibah, who, like Jezebel, painted their eyes and decke themselves with ornaments to entice men to commit adultery with them (Ezek 23).

The CTV spells out their values for you.

I wonder if they are equally or more so appalled at the number of civilians killed in this Iraqi conflict...but you can't tell from their web site what their take is on that.
