An (R) next to your name does not mean "Religious"

James Dobson, the head of the radio program Focus on the Family, reasoned a few months ago that Vice President of the National Association for Evangelicals Rich Cizik's concern over climate change is working "to shift the emphasis away from the great moral issues of our time, notably the sanctity of human life, the integrity of marriage and the teaching of sexual abstinence and morality to our children." Cizik is a religious leader in our country stepping forward to question how we are treating the resources given to us by God, and he is asked to resign his position for it.  In Dobson, we once again have a prime example of a very visible man, claiming to act in the interests of the Bible, shamelessly playing partisan politics with something we hold very dear to our hearts: our spiritual beliefs.

Newt's Religious Right Bedfellows

The more things change ...

GOP Shadow candidate Newt Gingrich has gotten into bed -- once again -- with the hatemongers in the Republican religious right.  Both Jerry Falwell and James Dobson (two disgraceful public figures) have made a point to heap praise on the disgraced former speaker.

Jerry Falwell has a piece up on his Moral Majority website, entitled "Why I Asked Newt Gingrich to Speak at Liberty's Graduation" in which he writes about Newt: "I have been very impressed with the spiritual maturity of this man and am convinced that he has been honest and forthright in clarifying his past failings and his quest, as a Christian, for God's forgiveness."

And, the equally disgusting James Dobson heaped lovers praise on Gingrich (while disparaging the potential candidacy of Fred Thompson, who apparently hasn't kissed Dobson's ego -- err, ring -- enough as of late).  Writes U.S. News:

"While making it clear he was not endorsing any Republican presidential candidate, Dobson, who is considered the most politically powerful evangelical figure in the country, also said that Gingrich was the "brightest guy out there" and "the most articulate politician on the scene today."

Are there any more transparent (or for that matter sinister) people in American politics today than Dobson, Falwell, Robertson and the rest of the hatemonger gang?  Dobson, Falwell et. al. continue to stop at nothing in their thirst for power and relevency.  We should all pay close attention to which candidates sell out to these fools.

In a dramatic turnabout from its previous harsh condemnation, the Christian Coalition has decided to embrace Dick Cheney's pregnant lesbian daughter, claiming that she's actually the Second Coming of the Virgin Mary.

Reached at his offices at Liberty University, the Reverend Jerry Falwell conceded that the Christian Right had been shortsighted in trying to boot this Mary out of the manger, when she actually offered a tremendous upside to the evangelical cause.

"Let's face it," Falwell stated, "she is a 'Mary,' she's probably technically a virgin, and it wouldn't really surprise me if her life partner was a carpenter."

In an attempt to stay on Holy Joe Lieberman's good side, and thus retain their razor-thin Senate majority, all Democratic Christian Senators today pledged to immediately convert to Judaism.

For those Democrats who are already Jewish, they have agreed to go from Reform to Orthodox Judaism (skipping right over the "conservative" branch, with its negative political connotations).

The Democratic Caucus also agreed to replace the Senate chaplain with a rabbi, and to lower the number for a Senate quorum to "ten," in accordance with Jewish law governing minyans.

Of course, shutting down Congress early on Friday is not even at issue, since members skip town by Thursday afternoons anyway.

BILL WINTER, CO-06: What do you believe?

My name is Bill Winter and I'm running for Congress against Tom Tancredo in Colorado's Congressional District Six.

I am a Colorado Native, a Littleton High School graduate, and a veteran of the Navy and the Marine Corps. I'm a lawyer, a teacher, a high school football coach, an orphan, and a kidney donor.

Forty two years ago I was born in Greeley, Colorado. My biological mother was single. She had six children already, but she only had custody of three of them. My biological father never even knew she was pregnant, or that I was even born. I was given up for adoption at birth and became an orphan.

I was born with a hole in my heart that required surgery. I didn't have that surgery until I was five or six years old. I say five or six because no one that I know really knows exactly how old I was. I wasn't adopted until after my surgery and I was lucky to be adopted at all. The vast majority of orphans with serious medical problems don't get adopted.
