Blessed are the Blah!

Every election cycle, the Republican party gets that old time religion. For the last year we've heard folks like Perry, Gingrich, Bachmnn and Santorum using classic appeals to good Old Testament prejudices. Jesus's message to heal the sick and help the poor and bring liberation is overlooked. Food stamps, subsidized health care and "bla..uh people" receiving welfare are all condemned. We hear how Regulation, the Nanny State and Big Brother are all threatening Americans and corporate people's liberty, yet these same lovers of freedom are quite comfortable with regulating non-believers' personal lives-especially women's private lives.
