Poor Don Wildmon
The American Family Association‘s homo-hating head honcho is feeling the pain at the pump, so he’s put out one of his Action Alerts, in a call to “Christians” to reduce their gas consumption by 3%.
This move is ostensibly to encourage conservation, but I kinda think this has a little more to do with the fact that their man in the White House is hurting on this issue and that, friends, is always the bottom line with these creatures. They want to save Dear Leader from sliding into below 30% approval ratings and putting the fall elections at risk for their fundamentalist party.
What I want to know, is what kind of car is Don driving?
I recently filled up my car with gas. The price? Nearly $50. This $3 a gallon gas (some say it will soon hit $4 a gallon) is having a very negative effect on our family pocketbooks.
Individually, we can’t do much about this situation, but if enough of us stick together and work together, we can help bring down the price of gas.
We urge you to join our “3% Solution” project. We are asking each person to reduce their consumption of gas by at least 3%. If demand goes down, so does the price of gas. Simply reducing our use of gasoline by 3% will be a major step in bringing down those gas prices! The law of supply and demand will kick in.

I realize this is a complicated issue and there is no single or simple answer. However, I do feel that if enough people join together we can make a difference. If we fail to make our voices heard, then the price will simply keep going up!
Don’t worry, he also tosses in a fundraising plea at the end of the message.
I’m all for conserving gas; we all know the AFA isn’t doing this for the right reasons. Their man in the Oval Office is who got us in this mess.
To illustrate Don’s hypocrisy regarding the environment, conservation and the effect of our oil addiction (as Dear Leader says) on the planet, take a look at the list of evangelicals who opposed National Association of Evangelicals leadership on a proposal to declare that mankind has “a sacred responsibility to steward the Earth and not a license to abuse the creation of which we are a part.”
…More than 20 evangelical leaders urged the NAE not to adopt “any official position” on global climate change because “Bible-believing evangelicals . . . disagree about the cause, severity and solutions to the global warming issue.”
The letter’s signers amounted to a Who’s Who of politically powerful evangelicals, including Charles W. Colson, founder of Prison Fellowship Ministries; James C. Dobson, chairman of Focus on the Family; the Rev. D. James Kennedy of Coral Ridge Ministries; the Rev. Richard Land of the Southern Baptist Convention; Richard Roberts, president of Oral Roberts University; Donald E. Wildmon, chairman of the American Family Association; and the Rev. Louis P. Sheldon, chairman of the Traditional Values Coalition.
