During the debate Indiana Congressman John Hostettler accused Obey, a Catholic, of being part of a "long war against Christianity in America." Obey demanded that Hostettler's words be stricken from the record and, eventually, they were.
Obey said that when he first came to Congress, "there would have been universal condemnation of Hostettler by both parties." In this case, Obey said he was approached afterward by a single sympathetic Republican. Obey was comforted that Jewish House members "appreciated that a Christian would speak out."
"One of the things that surprised me about the Christian Coalition was that even though it publicly denounced the illegal tactics of groups like Operation Rescue, when the big national anti-abortion protest came to Buffalo in 1992, Operation Rescue National housed its secret command and communication offices in the basement suite of offices that the Christian Coalition of New York had as its state headquarters."
He adds, "Soon after I entered the secret command post of Operation Rescue, I was given books on dozens of not-so-peaceful activities, including a book by Rev. Michael Bray advocating the bombing of abortion clinics."
Several companies with GOP ties were involved in the vote counting process in Ohio on Election night 2004. One was SMARTech Corp., a firm whose servers are currently used to host a number of Republican websites. Another was GovTech Solutions:
These firms worked closely with another company, Government Consulting Resources, Ltd (GCR), run by Dr. Alan Dillman, a professor at Cedarville University, a small fundamentalist Christian college in Ohio, to count the votes on election night in Ohio.
