It's more like Karl Rove and his EXTREME right wing Republicans, he wears the pants in the GOP at this point, if you're interested in finding out,
this is one good article to read:
"People are seeing the hard-right agenda for what it really is: nothing moral or Christian or compassionate. For example, W. Bush honestly thinks all
Jews and Moslems should actually go to hell. No wonder he's itching to launch a "crusade" against Iraq and other Muslim nations.
Pat Robertson's vicious hatred of even Protestants who do not follow his narrow-minded intolerant strain of "hypocristianity" is another exemplar
of the right wing. The dark alliance between right wingers and bogus messiah Sun Myung Moon illustrates just how antichristian the right is.
How can any real Christian support Moon? I would love to see someone ask George HW Bush, George W. Bush and Jerry Falwell why they are so closely
linked to Moon -- and whether or not they think Moon really is the Second Coming! We should ask Bush why his family acts like errand boys for a
fraudulent felon who calls himself a Jesus?
Bush, Robertson, Moon and other antichristians are misleading well-intentioned, true Christians. People who know their history recognize that this
alliance of GOP and Religious Reich hate, fear and persecution is actually a formula for the ages -- specifically, the Dark Ages.
Power-mad deceivers like the Bushes, Robertson, Falwell and Moon adeptly twist the Bible. They manipulate people of faith and create fear and mistrust
with their gross distortions of religious doctrine -- all in support of oppression. The Bible describes this technique clearly.
What sane person wants these lunatics speaking for them? Who trusts these hateful people? The irony is that blind support by the hard right for
"baby-killer," AWOL, coke-head, D-Dubya-I Bush proved they're hypocrites on "moral" issues. Moral, thinking people do NOT support the backwards,
evil leaders of the GOP.
Who really wants to refight the Scopes monkey trial? Who wants to impose a narrow, oppressive strain of prayer and religion on their fellow Americans
in direct violation of the Constitution? Most of us don't. Including most Republicans."
