With Friends Like These

What great Republican Warrior for Christ defended his religion — and the role it plays in politics — by saying the following: “Our faith has always been in direct conflict with the values of the world. We are, after all, a society that…treats Christianity like some second-rate superstition.”

A) Tom DeLay
B) Jack Abramoff
C) Randy “Duke” Cunningham
D) Bill Frist

A) That was Tom DeLay defending his faith and the role it plays in his politics — just days before he was forced to resign from Congress with an increasing number of charges and scandals stacking up against him.

Ironically, in announcing his resignation, DeLay noted that he made the decision to step down after seeking spiritual guidance from God through fasting.

Perhaps he should have consulted the Man Upstairs before playing fast and loose with campaign contributions in his home state of Texas where he is now facing criminal charges, and before cozying up with Jack Abramoff, who was recently convicted of bribing congressmen.
