The Fellowship of Secular and Religious Reactionaries

The banner headline of this article comes as no surprise: “Pat Robertson Backs Giuliani.” Professing “Bible-believing Christians” who are rabidly homophobic betray their true colors when they endorse given politicians for office.  This is particularly the case when that office is President of the United States!

Why Not Outright Condemn Obama’s Alignment With McClurkin?

Pam’s House Blend has a provocative post regarding Barack Obama entitled, “Why is Obama touring with ‘ex-gay’ homophobe Donnie McClurkin?  Part of the post contains a statement by a spokesman for Obama: “‘This is another example of how Barack Obama is defying conventional wisdom about how politics is done and
