Turning the Page

How is the Christian Right responding to the whole Mark Foley/Congressional page scandal?

With the sort of screaming from the treetops moral indignation one would expect from those who want to impose Biblical law upon the entire nation? Or by running for political cover lest their condemnation of Foley — who, after all, is a Republican — might prove to be an inconvenient truth at best, or an outright disaster at the ballot box at worst?

Well, at least one of Holier Than Thou’s favorite Warriors for Christ has spoken, and it isn’t pretty.

So, today we ask you, WHO recently blamed Foley’s victims for the whole sordid affair, claiming the scandal is really nothing more than “sort of a joke by the boy and some of the other pages”?


A. Rev. Pat Robertson of “The 700 Club”
B. James Dobson of Focus on the Family
C. Rev. Russell Johnson of the Ohio Restoration Project
D. Rev. Rick Warren of the Saddleback Church and author of “The Purpose Driven Life”
E. Rick Santorum, Republican Senator from Pennsylvania


ANSWER
B: That would be James Dobson of Focus on the Family — you know, the guy who kept foaming at the mouth over Monica Lewinsky’s dress?

Dobson went on to say that, “As it turns out, Mr. Foley has had illicit sex with no one that we know of.” Shortly thereafter, the Los Angeles Times ran a cover story interview with a former Congressional page who said that he indeed had sex with Foley.

Hello Greg and all,

Here's some more red hot ink for your pen. Now help me vanquish the sword!

This Foley fiasco has given people the chance to change the make-up of this government, which will ultimately lead to the end of the Bush-Cheney reign. It may not be pretty, but it is a gift, nonetheless. Don't waste this advantage. Use it wisely to end the more pressing problems that face us all.

Want to better understand some of the desperation among top Christian politicos? Want to know what else they are pretending not to know about? Follow the links and read about who I am and what I have to say. Notice that my last name is Page? Think this "page" scandal is a mere coincidence? The timing and ramifications are much worse than most realize yet.

If Christian political leaders are going to go around attacking others for not living up to their professed values, it's a damn good idea to be truthful and actually walk the walk. Logs and motes in the eye, camels through the eye of a needle, glass houses, kettles and pots, and what goes around comes around, et al. Karma's a bitch when She finally decides enough is enough! This wouldn't have been so bad on Republicans if they hadn't been such arrogant hypocrites in order to corner the so-called values voters! Now the "Two Candlesticks" and "Two Witnesses" (Truth and Justice) are "breathing fire" and "raining hailstones!"

Christian Political Leadership, Hypocrisy, Duplicity, and Purposeful Evil

The current scandal involving Congressman Foley is merely the latest in an amazingly long list of blatant deception and duplicity by Republicans and the Christian Right in recent years. While bedeviling us all with their holier-than-thou pretenses, they consistently support and/or perform blatant greed and abominable evil. Never forget the extent of their arrogance over the last two decades and especially the last 6 years. It is beyond amazing that Christians continue to blindly support such obviously blatant scoundrels, even as they are repeatedly exposed going against the most basic of human values. The level of hypocrisy and duplicity boggles the mind. There is no longer any doubt, whatsoever, that Christianity is little more than a purposeful deception used by political and religious leaders to dupe, manipulate, and coerce entire populations into giving them wealth and power, which they always use for greed, injustice, and abominable evils.

The actions of Foley and those who covered up for him directly parallel the actions of scores of priests that have raped innocent children, preyed upon others for centuries, and had their actions hidden and abetted by the Vatican. Now, in eerie repetition of Vatican history, we have a power hungry Christian Emperor (GW) working closely with the Vatican and Judeo-Christian aristocrats to lead crusades in the so-called Holy Land. Furthermore, to leave little doubt about the reality of this assessment, the USA, as the new Holy Roman Empire, is about to legalize the torture it has perpetrated in recent years while steadily reversing many of the democratic and civil freedoms that people gained when the Vatican and royalty lost control of their European empire at the turn of the nineteenth century. Now we see them following the same old path of evil as they strive to cement the status of the USA as the latest proxy Vatican empire. Make no mistake about it, the new dark ages are looming on the horizon unless we do something proactive to prevent it.

Remember that those who ignore history are doomed to repeat it!

Hot damn Seven Star Hand, you're on fire!
We can only hope that in the upcoming elections people wise up and take a good hard look at where the Republicans and Christian Right have brought us to and vote accordingly. And we can only hope that the voting machines aren't tampered with. Maybe we hope for too much! Thanks for your post.
