More WESP Follies

"Pro-life" and "pro-family" groups are gathering in Washington this week to celebrate the re-election of President Bush with a bash called the Christian Inaugural Eve Gala. Tom Rogenberg, a spokesman for Coral Ridge Ministries, said they wanted "to celebrate the response to the call that we had for Christians to get involved in the electoral process and to be sure that they were voting according to God's plan." God's plan apparently involves providing slop from the federal trough for "researchers" experimenting on human embryos, not to mention the $100+ million handed to Planned Parenthood, and perpetual war to bring liberation to every squalid backwater on earth. It's all right there in Jeremiah.

Meanwhile, "pro family leaders" are deeply troubled by the presdient's remarks that he wasn't about to spend any of his hard earned political capital pushing for a constitutional amendment to ban gay marriage.

I've said it before, and I will say it again, George Bush already HAS BEEN the most pro-homosexual president in U. S. history. Moreover, though he supported a phony and unnecessary constitutional amendment, the White House did not support H. R. 3313, the Marriage Protection Act, which would have barred federal courts — including the U.S. Supreme Court — from deciding whether the Defense of Marriage Act is constitutional. In short, he did not support legislation that might have passsed because Karl Rove was hoping that WESPs in Ohio and elsewhere would come out to vote, "stand up for marriage," and re-elect the president--and sure enough, they did. Mr. Bush has also spoken approvingly of states allowing civil unions and condemned the Republican platform for its opposition to such arrangements.

But who cares? After all, he reads Oswald Chambers and had Rick Warren to the White House.
