Tony Perkins: The Lord's Hypocrite

More fun with quotes:

``We are going to be vigilant to make sure that there is not this religious litmus test imposed,'' said Tony Perkins, the president of the Family Research Council, an evangelical Protestant group that is the principal organizer of the [conservative Christian `Justice Sunday'] telecast, which will take place at 7 p.m. Sunday from a megachurch in Nashville.

```Are you Catholic? Do you really believe what the Catholic church teaches?' These kinds of thinks shouldn't be part of the discussion,'' Mr. Perkins said. (NYTimes 8-12-05)


Huh? They're hosting a religious hodown for the President's Supreme Court nominee but don't want anyone else talking religion?

Why does Tony Perkins deny us the lord? From everything the FRC has told me, HE WHOSE NAME IS `I AM' wants a seat at the table of American democracy. And now instead of allowing an offering or sacrament these folks give HIM the holy stiff arm?

I wish the commandment against being a total partisan hack had made it down the mountain with the rest. But i'll settle for NUMBER NINE. NUMBER NINE. NUMBER NINE.

(CHB Tip: If they want to keep the gospels on the down low, how about bringing in the holy mimes and cutting the volume entirely?)

Yeah, it's fine for them to use a religious litmus test for who should be ON the court, but not OK for other to use that test to decide who whould be kept OFF the court (not that that's what most Dems are doing). Perhaps that was your point -- I'm a little tired right now.
