Newsflash: Tom DeLay isn't humble
"Our faith has always been in direct conflict with the values of the world. We are, after all, a society that provides abortion on demand, has killed millions of innocent children, degrades the institution of marriage and all but treats Christianity like some second-rate superstition."
He added "We are also a society that tries to hire labor for as cheap as possible, pull in the greatest profit from everyday necessities such as gas, ignore the tens of millions that are uninsured, ignore those who are impoverished, and tramples over the very institutions that formed our great country... oh wait, that sounds too Democratic, scratch that."
"This is a man, I believe, God has appointed ... to represent righteousness in government," the organizer, Rick Scarborough, told the audience.
"When we look at what the Bible teaches, we feel confidant in knowing that an arrogant and corrupt official is there in DC to pay lip service to our interests while he enriches himself, his family, and his friends. God bless him."
Scarborough added that DeLay shouldn't worry about his upcoming election and indictment for "God always does his best work after a crucifixion."
Scarborough went on and said "We understand that by comparing this crooked politician to Jesus Christ we are using all the stops to protect him and our interests, for really, we're surprised at how long we've been able to get away with promoting partisan politics under a religious banner. Let's all thank the Lord the IRS isn't any the wiser."
Folks, Christianity isn't under attack for it's faith - conservative Christianity is under attack for it's, well, conservative politics and it's complete perversion of the Bible to further and justify their prejudiced and uncompromising goals.
