Did you happen to receive a direct mail piece from American Family Voices this past weekend? AFV is a Liberal 501C3, founded by a former Clinton aide and former Political Director of People for the American Way, Michael Lux, and funded by the government employees labor union, AFSCME, and other “Progressive” donors. The weekend-before-the-election mailpiece is dressed up as an Evangelical Christian Organization Special Edition Newsletter, and assumes the perspective of “Values Voters,” betrayed by corrupt Republicans, complete with what appears at first glance to be an anti-Republican quote from James Dobson, but on closer examination the quote marks appear only around AFV’s citation, not around the words attributed to Dr. Dobson.
Of course, it was not difficult to smell a DemocRAT (a little subliminal message for you there J) when American Family Voices listed their gripes at Conservatives: taking contributions from Big Oil, cutting taxes for The Rich, laying waste to the Envirnonment, and going to war to enrich Halliburton. If you think they couldn’t top that list for tone deafness to the concerns of Evangelicals you’re wrong. AFV provides what would make a great parody of what Secularist Liberals THINK Christians are like, with their railing on Mark Foley. After all, you know how stunned all of us hayseed Bible-thumpers are that there are actually homosexuals in the GOP’s Big-Tent; and you know how we would like to burn homosexuals at the stake -- and here is our chance, by voting out the Republicans and voting in...Nancy Pelosi?
But wait, that’s not all…Somehow this supposed Evangelical Organization failed to mention issues that Evangelicals actually care about, such as abortion, same-sex marriage, immorality in pop-culture, parental rights, assaults on innocence in the public schools, assisted suicide, human cloning, destruction of human embryos for stem-cell research, oppressive taxation, free exercise of religion, etc…
This begs the questions, 1) how dumb does the Secularist Democrat Left think Christians are? and 2) what kind of political movement feels the need to enhance its electoral prospects by masquerading as the opposition?
