Family-Value, Christian Republicans

Those family-value Republicans over at "The Source" are bashing Representative Cleaver because he chose to leave Washington on Friday morning to preside over a funeral rather than stick around and cast a vote for a meaningless resolution supporting war. I just looked through my Bible, and I didn't see the line about "When I was grieving, you stayed in Washington to cast a vote for a nonbinding resolution endorsing a mismanaged war."

Gee Dan, have I missed something? I checked out the article by the Source and didn't see one word about anything promoting Christianity so why did you take the opportunity to bash Christians in your post? I don't know anything about The Source, but I looked at the first page of their website and didn't see one reference to religion of any kind anywhere on their home page.

I'd appreciate clarification.

What's this?!?

We need to have a reason to bash Christians?

Does this mean that Christians need a "reason" to bash people too? Other than the fact that they aren't Christians?

Careful. Introducing logic, reason and rationality into this discussion is the high peak of a slippery slope!

Things could quickly careen out of control. Instead of basing arguments on faith (belief without evidence), dogma and rhetoric, we might find ourselves in the realm of actual facts.

Dangerous territory. Especially for Republicans and Fox News.

Sorry, Travelingal - that wasn't just random Christian-bashing. Jeff Roe happens to be one of those disgusting political operatives who works with the Xtian Coalition and has no apparent morals. If you read his blog regularly, I am confident you'd agree.
