The Old Family Doorstop

By David D. Kirkpatrick in today's NY Times:

Republicans Admit Mailing Campaign Literature Saying Liberals Will Ban the Bible

The Republican Party acknowledged yesterday sending mass mailings to residents of two states warning that "liberals" seek to ban the Bible. It said the mailings were part of its effort to mobilize religious voters for President Bush.

The mailings include images of the Bible labeled "banned" and of a gay marriage proposal labeled "allowed." A mailing to Arkansas residents warns: "This will be Arkansas if you don't vote." A similar mailing was sent to West Virginians.

So why get upset? Given the quality of public education under 'No Child Left Behind', pretty soon no one will be able to read it anyway.

Is bald-faced lying part of a good Christian upbringing? Apparently so.I always thought there was a Commandment against 'Bearing False Witness'.

In their desperation to get Bush elected, they seem to have forgotten the one about 'Worshipping False Idols' too.

These ying-yangs must think everybody's as stupid as they are.
