Hungry like the wolf
Joan Bokaer over at Talk To Action writes how DeLay's pastor and his wife apparently ignorantly served on the board an organization called the U.S. Family Network, which turned out to be fundraising group for DeLay's Political Action Committee.
The pastor, Chris Geeslin, became suspicious when large gifts starting coming in from unlikely sources.
Perhaps the most ironic gift was the half million dollars from the textile mills of the Mariana Islands, now in the limelight for their sweatshop-like working conditions for women. The gift was used to fight Clinton administration efforts to regulate the islands.
Pastor Geeslin was particularly upset by the fact that the textile mills sponsored forced abortion and forced prostitution - a hard pill for anyone to swallow let alone an evangelical pastor who believed he was helping bring the United States to God.
We as Christians must protect our faith, as we've been warned to watch out for wolves in sheep's clothing. Tom DeLay was and is a predator who has learned to talk and act like his prey. He is guilty of using our humble and powerful faith to manipulate believers for personal gain.
Why can't we call a spade a spade?
