The demise of the Christian extremist's energy wave comes as a great comfort to us liberals. (link...)
We have had to suffer years of irrational-thinking, sham moral values, and a very painful period of high-level hypocrisy. As the Republican Party became a talking-head with mouths on both sides of its face, we were astounded that grown adults could be led like sacrifical cattle to the slaughterhouse of un-reason so easily.
But all that has passed now. The Christian coaliton is no longer focused on gay sex and abortion. They're feeling the squeeze now of looming economic disaster, the one created by their champions on Capitol Hill. I mean who really cares that John is marrying Bob when you're losing your home? When your credit card company informs you one late payment will result in your being bumped up to a 42% APR rating? When gas is $3.00 a gallon and heating oil prices are making your mother-in-law go without food?
Intrest rates today make yesterday's Mafia loan sharks look like a band of benevolent old uncles. No--the government will not break your legs, but it sure as heck can break your heart.
Repentance and forgiveness? Okay, I'm ready to forgive. I never thought Evangelicals were REALLY as mean and nasty, as evil and hypocrtical as they were portraying themselves to be. Mostly I suspected they were just immature and easily led, like teenage kids wanting to be best friends with the school yard bully, so no one would realize how vulnerable they were.
I hope now that they have seen the error of their ways the liberal community will be charitable, not to the crooks, sneaks, and thieves still surfacing now that the lid of protection has been lifted from the steaming pots of corruption, but to the average person who bought into all that Evangelical crap--the false modesty, the insincere moral doggeral, the swaggering disregard of laws here at home and abroad.
Now that the Evangelical community seems to be born-again--again. I hope they will humbly accept their obligation to repeat seven times--we was had, we was had, we was had--and then go out and do the one thing that will really make them feel better---slide back the curtain, walk into the booth, and vote Democratic.
