Right-wing Christian groups and the Republican politicians they bankroll have done much since the last election to impose their particular religious views on all Americans. But nothing comes close to the shameful declaration of religious war by Bill Frist, the Senate majority leader, over the selection of judges for federal courts.
Senator Frist is to appear on a telecast sponsored by the Family Research Council, which styles itself a religious organization but is really just another Washington lobbying concern. The message is that the Democrats who oppose a tiny handful of President Bush's judicial nominations are conducting an assault "against people of faith." By that, Senator Frist and his allies do not mean people of all faiths, only those of their faith.
...We fully understand that a powerful branch of the Republican Party believes that the last election was won on "moral values." Even if that were true, that's a far cry from voting for one religion to dominate the entire country. President Bush owes it to Americans to stand up and say so.End Slice:
Perhaps, we should be working to prevent the onslaught of faith and the pushers of Christian religion upon those who believe differently instead. Vote the bastards out.
Even if they don't use bombs but emotional terrorism to exploit their cause, doesn't that make them equaly devious as other terrorists?
Here's a solution. Let's not turn on the television when this broadcast comes out. If they speak into the forest and there is no one there to listen, at least the Nielson Ratings will be down.
Think of the push to tell people about the forthcoming testimonial as part of the Mass Media Propaganda Machine that is pushing the reichwing agenda...like Al Jazeera uses videos of beheadings.
