Religious Outrage Merchants

LJ-SEC: (ORIGINALLY POSTED BY [info]navytron89) From the DailyKos: http://www.dailykos.com/storyonly/2007/2/23/144421/637

Calling all religious outrage merchants! Fifteen more minutes of fame, now available:

In his latest appeal to the Republican base, Duncan Hunter has named Dr. Henry Jordan as his South Carolina campaign co-chair. This Henry Jordan:

COLUMBIA, S.C. (May 16, 1997 12:25 p.m. EDT) -- A state Board of Education member, talking Tuesday about displaying the Ten Commandments in public schools, had a ready suggestion for groups who might object to it.

"Screw the Buddhists and kill the Muslims," Dr. Henry Jordan said during the board's finance and legislative committee meeting. "And put that in the minutes," he added.

The remarks made Tuesday were expunged from the written minutes, but were recorded on tape. The (Columbia) State obtained the tape under the Freedom of Information Act.

Jordan, a surgeon who failed in a bid to get the Republican nomination for lieutenant governor in 1994, said Thursday he thought the meeting was over and members were engaged in private conversation.

Finally, an opportunity for the right wing's professional plaintiffs and peddlers of faith-based outrage to influence one of their own campaigns.

Cue the crickets.

 Nice guy there: Dr. Jordan sounds like a poster child for dominionist thought. I can't believe he said those things and is still in office. Its jerks like this that make me no longer claim Christainity as my religious perference. I can smell the b.s. and the back pedaling have already started and hope this guy gets canned.
