Christian Right Watch

An anti-gay "pastor", Lonnie Latham, was arrested on lewdness charges for propositioning a plainclothes policeman outside a hotel in Tulsa OK. He was a member of the Southern Baptist Convention's executive committee and very outspoken against homosexuality. He spoke out against same-sex marriage and supported a Southern Baptist Convention diretive urging its 42,000 churches to befriend gays and lesbians and try to convince them that they can become heterosexual "if they accept Jesus Christ as their savior and reject theirr sinful, destructive lifestyle."

Guess he had seen "Brokeback Mountain"... we may see a lot more of this kind of reaction by repressed homos in the brainwashed anti-gay gay Christian Right.

In other news, Christo-fascist Pat Robertson suggested that Israel Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's stroke was a dvine punishment for "dividing God's land." "God considers this land to be his," Robertson said on his TV program The 700 Club. "You read the Bible and he says 'This land is my land,' and for any prime minister of Israel who decides he is going to carve it up and give it away, God says, 'No, this is mine."

I think "This land is my land" was a Woody Guthrie song....
Anyway, is Pat Robertson CRAZY or just plain EVIL? Maybe Both, but I think he is CRAZY! He has called hurricanes and other natural disasters "God's punishment" for various sins, he blamed 9/11 on gays and feminists, and he called for the assassination of Venezuela's president Hugo Chavez... this man is DANGEROUS!

The Wall Street Journal reports that three Christian ministers were caught "blessing" the doors and seats of the hearing room where Senate Judiciary Committee members will be considering the nomination of Judge Samuel Alilto on Monday (read it)

The ministers insisted they weren't taking sides in the Alito debate, but said God is interested in the hearings because of issues like abortion, public prayer and gay marriage being debated...

This is an example of how important it is to DEFEAT Alito! The Christo-fascists love him, which should be reason enough to stop him. He is a reactionary, anti-choice, anti-gay, anti-civil rights ultra-conservative Republican. This is another reason to impeach George Bush! He is clearly the puppet of the Christo-fascists who control the Republican Party. As the withdrawal of Harriet Miers demonstrates, Bush will do nothing to offend the Christian Right base of the Republican Party.
