According to Kuo, Karl Rove's office referred to evangelical leaders as 'the nuts.'
I'm just trying to figure out who disagrees with him.
It's said that Christians should stay unspotted from the world. Many of them, I'm sure, don't read a newspaper or watch anything other than FOX and consider themselves informed enough for Jesus Christ. But Christians are not unspotted if their heads are so seriously up their ass as to think Pat Robertson is sane. (There's a good anti-Robertson pro-Christian post here, btw.)
So I went looking at the right wing blogosphere to see how they were spinning this. Didn't find too much, not surprising. If this is only being reported by KO and C&L then the left-wing choir knows about it and that's all. Did find this one, tho:
What We Got Instead of Faith-Based Initiatives
...we got something better than faith-based charities from this administration.
Their names are Roberts and Alito.
They tried that Miers crap on us and that would have been more faith-based charities sunshine up the rump, but we didn’t lay down for it and we got a real justice appointed.
In short, I think we came out ahead.
This is at southernappeal dot org. Nope, no linky.
Yep, drives me nuts, too. They're Right, and they're right. But I wonder if any of the wingnut Christians realize that putting their faith in Alito (or Robertson, or Bush) as a stand-in for Jesus is, um, HERESY. Meebe certain Christians are jus' paying for the sin of faith in false gods, ya think? Plus remember, you good lil' Baptists, he's Roman Catholic. Alito. Not Jesus. Oh, wait, depends on who you talk to. Well, discuss that little theological point off-blog, please.
On topic: Omnipotent Poobah wrote a great piece this morning called "An Atheist Defense of Faith", and said some very nice things about yours truly, thanks OP, over at Bring It On.
Off topic: My apologies to the blog stat junkies out there. My five hundredth post was a couple days ago. I wasn't paying attention. Sorry.
