TPM has an apt summary of an article in today's NYT highlighting Senate Majority Leader Frist's pandering to the theocratic right, which we now understand will take the form of a Family Research Council-mega church sponsored video conference alleging that by opposing a few of Bush's judicial nominees, Democrats are conducting a war against "people of faith". Dobson, Sheldon, and the usual despotic gang of Bible abusers and faith malpracticers are expected to be on hand to encourage the fatwa.
This on the heels of the publishing this week of Tom DeLay's stated and vigorous opposition to the separation of church and state, judicial review, and the right to privacy.
This on the heels of this week's guilty plea entered by theocratic terrorist (I'm using the conservatives' own loose definition of the word) Eric Rudolph for bombing abortion clinics AND Atlanta's Olympic Park.
This on the heels of last week's conference in Washington in which prominent conservatives called for the impeachment of the Republican appointed Supreme Court.
And this on the heels of last month's pandering to the theocratic right regarding Terri Schiavo and the lust for judicial blood it spawned.
And this on the heels of last year's Gay Marriage Amendment and the eleven anti-gay "marriage" state constitutional amendments it birthed last fall.
For the record, I am a "people of faith" and I don't support Bush, Frist, DeLay or this conference or its organizers or intentions.
