Religious Right still in a lather over the filibuster


And we're not surprised because...? Here's the AMERICAblog article:

Religious right still pissed at GOP for caving on filibuster
by John in DC - 6/9/2005 04:54:00 PM

From the American Family Association's propaganda organ:

...A conservative spokesman claims the deal that ended the unprecedented Democrat filibusters of pro-life and Christian judicial nominees in the U.S. Senate is a symptom of a disease plaguing the Republican Party -- an outbreak of Republicans in Name Only, or RINOs. And, according to Gary Bauer of the group American Values, it is time the GOP was inoculated against the infection. "We're going to do everything we can to end this disease of RINOism in the Republican Party," he says, "where people are elected running as Republicans, but they come to Washington and quickly decide that they can't think of anything better to do with their time than to make deals with the radical Left and Ted Kennedy and Hillary Clinton. We need to have some truth in advertising in politics, and this is a good place to start."

Bauer and other pro-family activists were enraged by the actions of seven Republican senators who recently joined with Senate Democrats to craft a compromise to limit the filibusters. Formerly such secret deal-making "was perceived by just about everybody as being a negative thing, something we wanted to stop," the American Values spokesman says. "Now, all of a sudden, when those backroom deals are thwarting the pro-family and pro-life movements of this country, the media holds them up as some sort of ideal that we should all be excited about." According to Bauer, those GOP deal-makers who joined with liberals in forging the filibuster compromise are typical RINOs, who should have stood their ground instead of giving important ground to Democrats in the battle over Bush's judicial nominees.

Message to religious right hate groups: Even your own party doesn't like you.

Ohio Restoration Project: an analysis


Thanks to [info]twistedchick for this find. Here's the website: Ohio Restoration Project And here is what [info]twistedchick said about it on her blog:

"This is a Dominionist move to install religious law instead of civil law in the state of Ohio, with recruitment for support through conservative churches; I linked in my last post to a pastor's letter to the editor opposing it.

What's involved? Let's look at the website itself. When you read the following excerpt, please remember that the buzzwords like freedom and harvest and spiritual warfare may mean something different to the people for which it was written:"

Not just a US Phenomenon


Readers of this community may be interested that Christian fundamentalism intruding into 'state' and citizen matters may not be a phenomenon limited solely to the United States. In an article from 'The Fundy Post' titled Who Watches the Watchers? it has been revealed that website filtering software endorsed by the NZ government actually can be traced back to The American Family Association:

Last Monday afternoon, a student at Takapuna Grammar School wanted to look at the anarchist website www.infoshop.org on one of his school's computers, as he had done several times before. This time, however, he found access to the site was blocked by software installed by the school and provided by a company called Watchdog...(Read more... )

Conservatives on the attack: Targeting SpongeBob


Here we go again- the conservative right, needing a target for their homophobic march, have targeted none other than SpongeBob Squarepants. Apparently they think that he is gay, like the Teletubbies character targeted a few years back.

Here's the article:
