And The Lord Said, Let There Be Strip-Mining…

I am just utterly disgusted by the latest anti-filibuster posturing:

As the Senate heads toward a showdown over the rules governing judicial confirmations, Senator Bill Frist, the majority leader, has agreed to join a handful of prominent Christian conservatives in a telecast portraying Democrats as “against people of faith” for blocking President Bush’s nominees.

(snip)

But Mr. Perkins stood by the characterization of Democrats as hostile to faith. “What they have done is, they have targeted people for reasons of their faith or moral position,” he said, referring to Democratic criticisms of nominees over their views of cases about abortion rights or public religious expressions.

My God, how I loathe these people. What’s especially galling is that a lot of the Bush nominees are being blocked because they’re too beholden to corporate interests, not because they’re religious fanatics.

So now it’s anti-Christian to not want corporations to run amok? Now there’s a side of Jesus that really was not adequately captured in the New Testament…

    I hate them, too. They make all sorts of accusations, but they don’t look at what the real reasons are. Bastards!
