Welcome to Ethics!

"Scarborough's RSV [Rick Scarborough Version of Christianity]has likely removed much of the teachings of Jesus and the prophets about helping the poor, the widows, and the orphans, and instead added numerous more passages condemning abortion, homosexuality and the
welfare system" by Brian Kaylor Baptist General Convention of Missouri April 12, 2006

Extremist homophobe Baptist preacher turned politico Rev. Rick Scarborough leads Lufkin, Texas based Vision America. His Gospel of Hate group sits slightly to the left of Fred Phelps, but spreads the same hate message to restrict the freedoms of GLBT Americans, women, youth, researchers, and non Christians. We're exposing the hate message of Rev. Rick Scarborough, his Dominionist fundamentlist allies claiming to be "Christian," and the implications for ou Country and our World. Stop your hate Rick Scarborough!

Landover Baptist University for the Saved Announces New Advanced Degree in Motherhood! [ Be a Dr. and a wife!]

Pastor Deacon Fred Smith from Landover Baptist Church

"Landover Baptist University for the Saved is proud to announce a new advanced degree program in Motherhood from our nationally respected school of Marriage and Family. With 5 minute classes, the coursework is specifically tailored
to the flighty attention spans of fidgety fussbudgets with vaginas.

The University's Missus of Cupcake Icing and Domestic Subjugation degree prepares female graduates for the rewarding Christian role of wordless, smiling servitude in Baptist husbandry. The core coursework also prepares the weaker gender for Christian Child Management, from slapping the love
of Jesus
in to an infant to jail visitation protocols during the latter
years of a mother-child relationship.

Students are taught the honored role of woman throughout Christian history as they scrub and wax the floor of the classroom -- and press and remove the lint from their professor's topcoat. The program offers a multidisciplinary Biblically grounded flavor and draws on the experimental teachings of world renowned Demonologist and

Creation Scientist, Dr. Jonathan Edwards. The degree can be completed for as little as $67,000 if you supply your own toilet cleaning supplies. We are now accepting
Christian ladies (both married and unspoiled) with Bachelorette degrees from
accredited Bible study and/or recipe swapping websites.

Widows, single mothers, or divorcees will not be accepted into the program for Biblical reasons. "

Just Shut Up.

Dear Rev. Rick Scarborough:

Your email blast of today was a real winner! What an clown. As usual, chocked full of Christian fanatic agenda initiatives, a porn scare, pleas for money as always, and anti stem cell crap. You go Notice that everything you touch lately turns sour?

I am sure Senator Frist will find a way to thank you for your comment about his bogus charity. Yes, his charity was a fraud...but so are the ones of all your heros, Tom Delay, etc.

And how dare you even go there in saying anything about AMFAR. Unlike your Vision America, AMFAR is run by a brilliant mind educated at a top research University with a PHD. (nothing from Bumbleweed Baptist or wherever you attended) They don't even claim to be Christians, but yet they do a better service for the World than your quacko Vision American, Inc. I'lll be happy to pull apart your IRS filing showing your $180,000 + + salary -- a big chucnk of the total dollars sent to you.

While I am at it, why have you and VA gone out to seek favorable ratings from any NON PROFIT watchdog rating website, or ANY Christian rating website?


I see a Better Business Burea banner on their site, where is your BBB approved rating from BBB and ? Not on , not on , not anywhere. So, why not zip your lips and mind you own little house/trailer/little World.

Politically Correct Diseases Pay Richly for all but the Diseased
The Washington Post recently reported that the U.N. vastly inflated the number of AIDS cases worldwide, especially in Africa. Since the time AIDS was diagnosed, the U.S. Government has spent $200 billion on AIDS. Despite all of this money, no cure or vaccine has been found. The Post followed with an editorial critical of the U.N. for exaggerating the AIDS problem, but it has not urged a reduction in global funding for the disease.

If you’re wondering why, that would be “Politically Incorrect!” In today’s world of political correctness, truth is always sacrificed on the altar of the current fad, whether in science or in medicine.
Edward C. Green, Senior Research Scientist at the Harvard Center for Population and Development Studies, a member of the Presidential Advisory Council for HIV/AIDS, and a member of the board of, said that, for years, 'Calling attention to lower HIV infection rates in Africa can get one in trouble. One can be accused of not caring about Africans, about being in denial, or in extreme form, being a holocaust denier. In most reporting on African AIDS, there seems to be competition over who can paint the most catastrophic picture.'

Some of the money raised to fight AIDS has been spent on big salaries. Focusing on the American Federation for AIDS Research (AMFAR), the FAIR Foundation says total compensation for its officers, directors, as well as other salaries, wages, pension and employee benefits came to $5,442,557 in 2004. Its CEO had a total compensation package of $320,134. I’m in the wrong profession!

Left Behind on Jews

Seems weird to me that so many right wing nutbag preachers are so eager to jump out and be so vocal in their support of Israel / the Jews. Considering their post-Rapture analysis and Biblical litercay of what is ahead for the Jews - you would think that the Rabbis and Jewish Community might be more outspoken regarding the false gestures of these false "Christians"

Rev. Rick Stabs Perry

Rick thinks Perry isn't being a very good Christian according to GOP big shot Rev. Rick Scarborough. I read last year that Perry attended a number of the "luncheons" Scarborough organized to push his Gospel of Hate . Did Perry realize that maybe these fanatics are a bad thing for Texans and the formerly Republican Texas GOP.

ABC News: The Note: Kissing Ben Nelson:

"'The red-state faithful have seen the GOP battered on the national stage
by a string of miscues that has ignited Democratic hopes of gains in the fall,'
the authors write, but leaders have also been 'insulted' locally by Gov. Rick
Perry's business taxes to fund public schools and a lacking commitment to
'family values,' so says Christian leader, Rev. Rick Scarborough.

Thanks Wal Mart!

I havent seen the extremist right response to this news from Walmart yet. -- they will have to soon just announce a Boycott Everyone campaign. Last time I checked they were boycotting just about everyone (P & G, Ford, Volvo, Subaru, Target) No place to run, no airline to fly, no hotel to stay in, no place to stock up their bunkers, no place to shop.

Thanks WalMart. We are your customers, your employees, your stockholders, your friends. To check out which companies are tuly gay-friendly, check out the Human Rights Campaign website at

Wal-Mart launches gay-friendly initiative -- Queer Lesbian Gay News --

Hello, DNC? Dean?

Once upon at time I was a Republican. It's not easy being a Democrat either in the redneck belt South. Where the hell is the National DNC here pushing their Alabama Chapter and its' leader to do the right thing and certify this election. Mr. Dean, you lame ass leader could you please do something here?
Patricia Todd won because she was the best candidate. She won the damn election, confirm her!

ps: I am sure it just eats the fabric out of the rear end of Rick Scarborough to see a lesbian elected in Alabama - a placee where he spent so much time last year pushing to force the ten commandments into every school and public building on Earth.

Considering his racist blow buddy Roy Moore lost as well in Alabama - DOUBLE SLAM!

Victory Fund vows fight to uphold Todd's win -- Queer Lesbian Gay News -- "More than a month after the historic primary win that has Patricia Todd set to become Alabama's first openly gay legislator, her election has still not been certified -- and her supporters want the state Democratic Party to stop dragging its feet.
'Democracy means nothing if backroom deals can change the outcome of a fair election,' Chuck Wolfe, president and CEO of the Gay and Lesbian Victory Fund, which backed Todd, said in a written statement. "

Surburban White Murderers

Ever notice how the "experts" used by Rick Scarborough and the religious extremists are often discredited and/or under the employment of some type of "think tank" run by quacko James Dobson and Focus on the Family of Colorado Springs? In their "Christian" eyes it is OK to make up a lie or falsify research when the truth doesnt work in their culture war on mainstream America. How crazy is that?

Dr. Poussant is a Harvard Medical School expert in pyschiatry.

It is young surburban men who are committing a lot of these hate crimes. They are probably more active in their local megachurch than they are in any type of organized hate group like the KKK, Skinheads, Aryan Youth, etc etc. Stop teaching your kids to hate!

From National Public Radio, great piece!

NPR : Why Do Young Men Commit Hate Crimes?:

"The beginning of summer is being met with rash of violent, potentially hate-based crimes across the United States. Ed Gordon talks with Mark Potok, director of the Intelligence Project at the Southern Poverty Law Center, and Dr. Alvin Poussaint, professor of psychiatry at Harvard Medical School, about why so many hate crime perpetrators are young men -- many just teenagers."

SPLC on Vision America

A SPLC intelligence report on Rick Scarborough and Vision America of Lufkin, Texas. It only takes a little reading to determine that Vision America's Rick Scarborough is a total self promoting East Texas clown. He is not Conservative he is Extremist.
His public relations and "image" department carefully pushes he and his friends to America as mainstream Christians. Jerrry, Jr. pays himself a few hundred thousand dollars and often asks members at his conferences to "fall to their knees" for ten to fifteen minutes to pray to the God he thinks he owns. Of course, he is sex obsessed like many of the fake pastors spreading the Gospel of Hate in America.

Scarborough is NOT mainstream Christian. Even the Baptist leadership in Texas thinks he is a total bufoon. Rev. Rick is a group of way out there holier than thou preachers and friends who forgot their Bible as they raced off to the Hate Rally to restrict the freedoms of Americans. Label these guys as what they are: fundamentalist, dominionists, Christian Nationalist, and advocates of a Christian based World government. Passive Agressive

Onward Christian Soldiers

Dear Extremist Wackos and Friends of Rev. Scarborough:

Before you order George to push the buttons and get your party rolling, Is it possible(like on Star Trek) to just beam all of you nutbag extremist freaks who call yourself Christians somewhere off of our planet and OUT of our world? Hate to tell you but we have to plan to go anywhere with you. You have worn us out and we are losing our tolerance of others - - just like you.

All of us sodomoites and liberals and Democrats and Atheists and real Christians and Buddhists and people of Color ( those of us with Brains) might like a livable EARTH to inhabit to celebrate the day you leave us here.

Please go away now, but please don't torch our planet!

ps: You're going to be so shocked when you realize that God is with us and decided to "Leave you behind"

Birth Pangs of a New Christian Zionism:

"'The coming nuclear showdown with Iran is a certainty,' Hagee wrote this year in the Pentecostal magazine Charisma. 'Israel and America must confront Iran's nuclear ability and willingness to destroy Israel with nuclear weapons. For Israel to wait is to risk committing national suicide.'"


More recently, some of Hagee's allies, such as nationally syndicated evangelical radio host Janet Parshall, became ecstatic when Israel and Hezbollah commenced hostilities last month. "These are the times we've been waiting for," Parshall told her listeners in a voice brimming with joy on July 21. "This is straight out of a Sunday school lesson."


Family Values Hypocrites

Could it be true that Scarborough murdered the woman he was having an affair with? Not very Christian for a big shot man of "values" and all . . . check it out. Look for the Preacher Edition and the Ex Gay Editions of The Right Wing Hypocrites List Soon.

The Resource List of Family Values Hypocrites (With Links)

EDISON MISLA ALDORANDO, Speaker of the Puerto Rico House of Representatives, reached a deal with prosecutors to reduce a rape charge to attempted rape of his 17 year-old step daughter and her friend. He was sentenced to 13 years in prison for the lesser crime and two counts of giving alcohol to minors.
RANDAL DAVID ANKENEY, a Republican activist and regional representative for Colorado Governor’s Office of Economic Development, was considered a fixture in El Paso County Republican politics. He was charged with sexual assault on a child with force, sexual assault on a child, sexual exploitation of a child, marijuana possession, and possession of drug paraphernalia, but copped a plea to a lesser crime of attempted sexual assault. The girl was 13 years old at the time. In addition, he was charged in the sexual assault of a 17 year-old campaign worker. Oh yeah, his dogs were named Nixon and Reagan.
JIM BAKKER, PTL Club televangelist, committed adultery with Jessica Hahn and then used charitable donations to pay her hush money. His finely-tuned Ponzi scheme bilked his followers out of millions of dollars. He was indicted on 23 federal charges of fraud, tax evasion, and racketeering. But Bakker did repent and was forgiven by the Lord. However, God does not forgive Democrats for similar offenses.
PAUL ROBERT BALACH was Labor Secretary Elizabeth Dole’s political personnel liaison to the White House. He was also an aide to Rep. Robert Bauman (listed above – Birds of a feather DO flock together). Balach was part of a major White House scandal during the 1980’s. Children from orphanages in Nebraska were transported around the United States by top Republican officials in order to engage in child sex orgies with America's ruling elite. Balach paid for homosexual prostitute services which were charged to his credit card. See Charles K. Dutcher, Lawrence E. King, Jr. & Craig J. Spence.
REP. BOB BARR (GA) sponsored the anti-gay Defense of Marriage Act, believes in the sanctity of marriage, and is an opponent of abortion. Yet. Rep. Barr was married three times. Furthermore, he paid for his second wife's abortion and failed to pay child support to the children of his first two wives. While married to his third and present wife, Barr was photographed at a charity event licking whipped cream from the chests of two buxom women .
MERRILL ROBERT BARTER, Lincoln County Commissioner, pleaded guilty to unlawful sexual contact and assault on a teenage boy. His den of iniquity was a motel near the Civic Center during the Republican State Convention which he attended. He was handed a suspended sentence of two years in prison, with two years probation.
REP. ROBERT BAUMAN, chairman of the American Conservative Union in 1979, was an anti-gay activist who was described as the quintessential conservative, family-values congressman. He was also a married, closet Republican and leading a double life. He was charged with solicitation and having sex with a 16-year-old boy he met at a gay bar.
PARKER J. BENA, a Republican activist, pleaded guilty to possession of child pornography on his home computer(including children as young as 3 years of age) and was sentenced to 30 months in federal prison and fined $18,000.
LOUIS BERES was Chairman of the Christian coalition of Oregon. According to its web site, the group describes itself as Oregon's leading grassroots organization defending our Godly heritage, and is affiliated with the national organization founded by Pat Robertson. Beres was accused by three of his female family members of molesting them when they were pre-teens. Some heritage!
JOHN BOLTON, Bush's back-door appointee ambassador to United Nations, has set about trying to single-handedly dismantle the U.N. There are corroborated allegations that Mr. Bolton’s first wife, Christina Bolton, was forced to engage in group sex have not been refuted by the State Department.
HOWARD L. BROOKS, legislative aide and former director of the Antelope Valley YMCA, was charged with molesting a 12-year old boy and possession of child pornography.
ANDREW BUHR, the Republican party nominee for the Missouri House in 2000 and the former Republican committeeman for Hadley Township, was one of three men charged with two counts of first degree sodomy with a 13-year old boy. After his arrest, GOP Central Committee Chairman John Winston called Buhr “a nice guy, and a smart person who was very active in the party.”
TED BUNDY campaigned for the Republican Party, and was considered by many as a rising star in the GOP. He was also a serial rapist who murdered 16 women.
JOHN ALLEN BURT, an anti-abortion extremist, was charged with sexual misconduct involving a 15-year old girl. He was caught by police 150 miles from the scene of the crime , obviously trying to make his escape. The girl, one of two who have brought about allegations against Burt, was living at Our Father’s House, Burt’s home for unwed mothers. The home was accredited and inspected by the Florida Association of Christian Childcare Agencies. Burt has a long history in connection with violence against abortion clinics.
REP. DAN BURTON (IN), Chairman of the House International Relations Subcommittee on the Western Hemisphere, a staunch Conservative and Born-again Christian, was quoted as saying that character does matter. He once deemed President Clinton a scumbag for his sexual encounters while in office. Yet, Burton admitted committing adultery and fathering an illegitimate child. In addition, it has been reported that Burton abused his power by using strong-arm and unethical campaign finance practices and by preying on female lobbyists, staffers and constituents. Furthermore, it is alleged that he groped a lobbyist from Planned Parenthood in the mid-1990s when she visited his Washington office. There are also accusations that Burton maintained sexual relationships with women on his congressional and campaign payrolls.
JOHN BUTLER, Cass County, IL, GOP chairman, was charged with criminal sexual assault on a teenage girl. Butler had previously received pardons from Gov. George Ryan for burglary convictions.
REP. KEN CALVERT (CA), champion of the Christian Coalition, was quoted as saying "We can't forgive what occurred between the President and Lewinsky." Yet in 1993, this champion of family values was caught by police in a compromising position with prostitute in a parked car. He then attempted to flee the scene. Not surprisingly, Calvert was accused by his ex-wife of being a deadbeat dad.
REP. HELEN CHENOWETH (ID) admitted to a six-year adulterous affair with a married associate. In 1995, Chenoweth had denied the affair when asked about it by The Spokane Spokesman-Review, but she claimed a pardon from a higher authority: "I've asked for God's forgiveness, and I've received it," she revealed. Like Bush, she also speaks to God. In other words, God is far more forgiving of Republican moral offenses than Democrats.
KEOLA CHILDSInteresting last name for a pedophile, Hawaii County Councilman pleaded guilty to first degree sexual assault of a male child.
ROY COHN, continually condemned gays and gay rights, but was a closet gay who died of AIDS. He played a prominent role in the trial of eleven leaders of the American Communist Party and in the prosecution of Julius Rosenberg and in 1951. It’s obvious that Americans were given a Cohn job by this man.
CAREY LEE CRAMER, a political consultant, and the man behind the ad accusing the Clinton-Gore Administration of giving away nuclear technology, was convicted on two counts of indecency with a child by contact and one count of indecency with a child by exposure. He faces up to 149 years in prison.
REP. DAN CRANE had sex with a female minor working as a congressional page. Rep. Henry Hyde pleaded mercy for his friend before members of the House. "I suggest to the members that compassion and justice are not antithetical; they are complementary.” They must have been moved by Hyde’s compassionate oratory, because they voted to censure Crane rather than expel him. One would never know this was the same Henry Hyde who screamed for blood at the Clinton impeachment hearings, and later admitted this was payback for Nixon.
KEVIN COAN, Republican election board official, was sentenced to two years probation for soliciting sex over the Internet (A favorite tool of neo-con pedophiles) from a 14-year old girl. The "girl" was actually a male Alton police officer who had set up a chat-room sting.
PAUL CROUCH, Televangelist and former President of Trinity Broadcasting Network, had an extramarital gay affair with a former employee at a network-owned cabin at Lake Arrowhead in 1996. TBN paid $425,000 in hush money to Enoch Lonnie Ford in an attempt squelch the story. However, the LA Times got wind of it and the story got out. Beware LA Times! According to Crouch, God, we proclaim death to anything or anyone that will lift a hand against this network and this ministry that belongs to you, God. However, God does provide for hypocrite neo-cons. It is said that Crouch and his wife own thirty homes across America, as well as a Gulfstream private jet.
RICHARD A. DASEN SR., Republican benefactor of conservative Christian groups, was charged with rape of a 15-year old girl and two felony counts of promoting prostitution, after being caught in a cheap motel, clad in his underwear, with a nearly-naked young lady who was behind in her payments to his finance company. Dasen, 62, is married with grown children and several grandchildren. According to court documents, he admitted to police that he paid more than $1 million to have sex with a large number of young women, many of whom were in legal trouble, addicted to drugs and in debt to him. City Attorney Charles Harball claimed that Dasen pretty much single-handedly funded the methamphetamine trade here in Kalispell for a number of years. He explained that women used the money Dasen paid them to pay for their habits. Harball went on to say that after Dasen’s arrest, money to methamphetamine users pretty much dried up. He added that there has been a flood of petty crime from addicts seeking cash for their habit. One might surmise that when it comes to women druggies, Dasen is a compassionate conservative.
RICHARD A. DELGAUDIO, a major GOP fundraiser who collected money for Ronald Reagan and Jessie Helms, was found guilty of producing child pornography, after paying two teenage girls to pose for sexual photos in a Baltimore Hotel.
PETER DIBBLE, legislator from New London, CT, pleaded no contest to having an inappropriate relationship with a 13-year-old girl over a three year period. Obviously Dibble liked to dabble with young girls.
BRIAN J. DOYLE, Deputy Press Secretary of Homeland Security, propositioned what he thought was a 14 year-old girl over the Internet. He sent her pornographic movie clips and had sexually explicit conversations with her. As it turns out, the girl was really an undercover police detective, and Doyle was caught with his virtual pants down. He revealed his name, his position at Homeland Security Department, and offering his office and government issued cell phone numbers. Mr. Doyle’s misdeeds provide a textbook example of The Peter Principle in action. Surprisingly, he wasn’t promoted to a higher level of incompetence in the Bush Administration. Doyley, you’re doing a heck-of-a job.
CHARLES K. DUTCHER, associate director of presidential personnel in the Reagan Administration, was part of a major White House scandal during the 1980’s. Children from orphanages in Nebraska were transported around the United States by top Republican officials in order to engage in child sex orgies with America's ruling elite. Dutcher paid for homosexual prostitute services which were charged to his credit card. See Paul Robert Balach, Lawrence E. King Jr. & Craig J. Spence.
NICHOLAS ELIZONDO, director of the (get this) Young Republican Federation, molested his 6-year old daughter and was sentenced to six years in prison.
LARRY DALE FLOYD, Republican Constable in Denton County, TX, was arrested July 2005 for allegedly crossing state lines to have sex with an 8-year old child. He was charged with 7 related offenses.
JOHN FUND of the Wall Street Journal, was a prominent anti-abortion columnist and GOP fund raiser. He lost his position after it was revealed that he impregnated the daughter of an old girlfriend and then encouraged her to abort his child. It’s obvious that Fund’s biggest Fundraiser was pedophilia.
JEFF GANNON, real name James Guckert, was partisan blogger and regular contributor to, with no journalism credentials. Using an alias, he got invited to Bush's Press conferences. Although he has made anti-gay statements, he is a pimp and a gay prostitute. Guckert once advertised himself on the Internet as a "top" who is "8 inches, cut." Astonishingly, Guckert had access to Bush that many legitimate journalists were unable to obtain. Hmmm!
RICHARD GARDNER, a Republican candidate for Nevada Assembly District 34, admitted to molesting his two daughters.
JACK W. GARDNER, is presently a Millersville Boro (PA) councilman, despite having previously been convicted of molesting a 13 year-old girl. The deed took place at the Old Mill Inn in Lancaster County.
NEWT GINGRICH, former House Speaker, who has hinted he might be a presidential candidate in 2008, was married three times. Gingrich campaign worker Anne Manning admitted that she gave Newt oral sex while he was still married to his first wife. Proving he is a Compassionate Conservative, Newt informed his 1st wife he was filing for divorce while she was in the hospital recovering from cancer treatments. Gingrich was also reprimanded and fined $300,000 by the House Ethics Committee. It seems he had used tax-exempt foundation money to promote Republican goals. He was also found to have lied to the committee during the investigation.
PHILIP GIORDANO , former Mayor of Waterbury, CT, is serving a 37-year sentence in federal prison for sexually abusing 8- and 10-year old girls. This case is the worst I have ever seen," said U.S. District Judge Alan Nevas in passing sentence. "Your conduct is the worst I have ever seen. I've seen drug dealers, murderers. What you did is indescribable."
RUDY GIULIANI, former NYC mayor, is considered a GOP front-runner for 2008 presidential candidacy. He not only committed adultry, but moved his mistress into the State Capital while still married. In February 2005, Giuliani pocketed $80,000 for speaking at a charity benefit for tsunami aid which raised only $60,000 for the victims themselves.
MATTHEW GLAVIN, former president and CEO of the Southeastern Legal Foundation, played a major role in the Clinton Impeachment, pointing the finger at President Clinton on morality issues, and was largely responsible for efforts to get Clinton disbarred in Arkansas. Married with children, Glavin was active many anti-gay causes. However, like other GOP anti-gay self-haters, such visciousness is the result of being burried deep in the closet. Glavin has had multiple arrests for public indecency. One such arrest in October 2000 was in a Chattahoochee River park in Atlanta, a popular spot for same-sex cruising, where Glavin was caught masturbating in a parking lot. The arresting officer claims that he was fondled lewdly by Glavin. Glavin plead guilty and was sentenced to one year probation.
MARTY GLICKMAN, a.k.a. “REPUBLICAN MARTY”, was taken into custody by Florida police on four counts of unlawful sexual activity with an underage girl and one count of delivering the drug LSD.
JOHN GOSEK While serving as Mayor of Oswego, NY, was arrested outside a motel near Syracuse, after offering a $250 payment to a woman in exchange for sex with two teenage girls. Unfortunately for Gosek, this was a sting operation and he got busted. Gosek is facing federal criminal charges of using a facility in interstate commerce (a telephone) to knowingly attempt to persuade, induce, entice, and coerce an individual under the age of 18 years to engage in sexual activity, more commonly referred to as the Mann Act.
MARK A. GRETHEN was to be honored in Washington D.C. as Republican of the Year, an honor bestowed upon him by Representative Tom Davis of Virginia. The problem was that Grethen couldn’t make it to the awards ceremony since he was convicted of six counts of sex crimes involving children . He will be in the Deep Meadow Correctional Facility until September 25, 2024.
DR. W. DAVID HAGER, OBGYN, was an avowed anti-abortionist, yet Bush appointed him to the FDA committee on reproductive drugs. He was a member of Focus on the Family's Physician Resource Council and involved in a movement to ban the morning-after-pill. It was revealed that Dr. Hager had an adulterous affair, before divorcing his wife. It was also reported that he sexually abused her, including sodomization while she was asleep. The perfect Bush appointee!
MARK HARRIS, a West Bend, WI Alderman, was described as a ”good military man" and "churchgoer". He was sentenced to 12 years in prison for repeated sexual assault of a young girl. The molestation began when she was 11 years old, and continued over a two year period.
JOHN HATHAWAY, Maine Senate candidate, was accused of having sex with his 12-year old baby sitter and withdrew his candidacy after the allegations were reported in the media.
HOWARD SCOTT HELDRETH, an anti-abortion activist, gained fame when he was arrested for attempting to cross police lines to take water to Terri Shiavo. According to the right-to-lifers, he is a real hero for the un-born. However, Heldreth doesn’t fare so well for the living; He is a convicted child rapist in Florida.
REP. JOHN HINSON (Miss), married and ultra-conservative, admitted to being accused of committing an obscene act at a gay establishment. Furthermore, he acknowledged that he survived a fire in a gay D.C. movie theater, but still denied being homosexual. Hinson won re-election, but three months later was arrested on charges of attempted oral sodomy.
MIKE HINTZ, First Assembly of God youth pastor, was commended by Bush during the 2004 presidential campaign. The pastor was a real champion for decency. He signed an ad that called for criminally prosecuting businesses that sell porn. Among his other achievements, Hintz urged teens to avoid pursuing romantic relationships in favor of getting closer to God. Perhaps Hintz was really prompting teens to get closer to him. Hintz surrendered to police after admitting to a sexual affair with a female juvenile whom (you guessed it) he’d been counseling for emotional problems.
NEAL HORSLEY (pay attention to the last name) is best known among the pro-lifer’s for his Nuremberg Files. It lists abortion doctors marked for death. He has called for the arrest of all homosexuals. Horsley admitted on Fox News Radio's The Alan Colmes Show, that he's had sex with mules. This brings a whole new meaning to the phrase Piece of Ass. Horsley also put graphic photographs on his web site of naked men committing homosexual acts and a nude woman engaging in bestiality amid shots of grotesquely maimed fetuses. Horsely openly calls for the establishment of a new government, one that can obey God's plan for government. And what is Horsley’s Faustian vision of this plan?God only knows!
TIM HUTCHINSON, former US Senator (AR) and former Baptist preacher, divorced his wife of 29 years to marry a congressional aide he was having an affair with.
PAUL INGRAM a former top civil sheriff's deputy and head of the Thurston County (WA) Republican Party, pleaded guilty to six counts of raping his daughters. However, so-called victims of "recovered memory" came to Ingram’s rescue, creating a defense fund and trying to generate support for his cause. They suggested that the girls’ memories of abuse were manufactured (by Democrats?). Wonderful family values; these wicked children invented the abuse. However, Supreme Court and U.S. District Court upheld the validity of Ingram's plea. Ingram was sentenced to 20 years, but served 14 years in State prison.
EARL “BUTCH” KIMMERLING was a moral majority advocate. He gained statewide attention in Indiana by fighting a gay couple’s attempts to adopt an 8-year-old girl, who at the time was under Earl’s foster care. The Kimmerlings and their pastor, Brad Brizendine of Center of Faith Church, launched a campaign opposing homosexual adoption. Republican representatives also took up the issue by proposing a bill to ban gay adoptions in Indiana. More than likely, the real reason Kimmerling waged his custodial campaign was that he wanted the girl all to himself. He was charged with molesting her and was sentenced to 40 years in prison.
LAWRENCE E. KING JR., a Republican activist, embezzled funds from the credit union which he managed. The money was said to have been funneled to help organize child sex parties at the White House during the 1980’s See Paul Robert Balach, Charles K. Dutcher & Craig J. Spence.
I. LEWIS “SCOOTER” LIBBY is the former Assistant to the President and Chief of Staff to V.P. Dick Cheney. He was forced to resign after being given a 5 felony-count indictment by a grand jury in connection with the “outing” of Valerie Plame. Scooter is also a founding member of Project for the New American Century, a neo-conservative think tank which created the policy document Rebuilding America's Defences , a draconian manifesto for world domination (to which the Bush Administration has adhered). If you find this unsettling, there’s an even more sinister side to Libby. In 1996 he wrote The Apprentice, a novel containing explicit and bizaree sexual content, including beastiality and pedophillia.
REP. DONALD “BUZ” LUKENS (OH) paid a female minor for sex over a four year period, beginning when she was 13 years old. He was secretly videotaped by an Ohio TV station, offering the girl’s unemployed mother a government job in exchange for her silence. Lukens was found guilty of contributing to the delinquency of a minor and sentenced to one month in jail. However, after serving his sentence, Lukens still refused to resign. He was later accused of fondling a Capitol elevator operator, before finally submitting his resignation.
JON MATTHEWS, a neo-conservative talk show host, was sentenced to seven years' probation for exposing his genitals to an 11-year-old girl. On his show he often voiced the view that those who crossed the law deserved little mercy and harsh punishment. Well, he seems to have received an abundance of mercy and zero harsh punishmentfrom the Liberal court...but he probably didn’t complain.
JEFF MILLER, Senate Republican Caucus Chairman in Tennessee and the sponsor of Tennessee’s Marriage Protection act, was sued for divorce because of an alleged affair he was having with an office aid. The Marriage Protection Act proclaimed that marriage should be defined as between a one man and one woman. It also banned gay marriage in the state constitution. However, Miller opposed an amendment that would have included an adultery clause. Now why would he do that?
NICHOLAS MORENCY, an anti-abortion activist, pleaded guilty to possessing child pornography on his computer. He was also found guilty of offering a reward to anybody who murders an abortion doctor.
BRENT PARKER, a Utah state representetive, was arrested for soliciting sex from an undercover officer posing as a male prostitute.
JEFFREY PATTI, Republican Committee Chairman, was arrested for distributing a video clip of a 5-year-old girl being raped.
JOHN PAULK, Christian Fundementalist and professed ex-gay, lied about prowling for gay sex while running a fundamentalist group to cure gays. Denial is not a river in Egypt.
JUDGE MARK PAZUHANICH molested a ten year-old girl during a Hilary Duff concert. He pleaded no contest to charges of corrupting a minor, endangering the welfare of a child, two counts of indecent assault, and an additional charge of public drunkenness. Pazuhanich was sentenced to 10 years probation.
GEORGE ROCHE III, while serving as president of Conservative Hillsdale College, carried on a torrid 19 year affair with his daughter-in-law, Lissa Roche, who was managing editor of the Hillsdale College Press. The sordid entanglement (which is still denied by many conservatives) apparently led to Roche’s divorce from his wife of 44 years. It also must have contributed to Lissa’s tragic suicide, just hours after she publicly revealed the details of the affair. Hillsdale College, emphasizes the importance of the common moral truths that bind all Americans, while recognizing the importance of religion for the maintenance of a free society.
BEVERLY RUSSELL, Republican activist and Christian Coalition leader, admitted to an incestuous relationship with his stepdaughter, Susan Smith, whose name was later prominent in the newspaper headlines for having drowning her two children.
JACK RYAN, was the 2004 Republican nominee for the U.S. Senate (IL). However, he had the misfortune of running against popular Democrat Barack Obama. It was alleged by his wife, actress Jeri Ryan, that he pressured her to have sex with other men. According to Jeri, he tricked her into visiting sex clubs, where he asked her to have sex with him while others watched. Ryan called this a smear campaign, even though he consistently trailed Obama in the polls throughout the race.
JOE SCARBOROUGH, Conservative talk show host and pundit, is a former Congressman who was once considered a “rising star” in the GOP. Suddenly, with no forewarning, he prematurely and unexpectedly resigned his congressional seat to spend more time with his sons. This occurred amidst allegations of an affair, after the congressman had divorced his wife. A short time later, Constituent Services Coordinator Lori Klausutis, was found dead in Scarborough’s office of an apparent head injury. Within three hours of the body's discovery, both Rep. Scarborough and his spokesman appeared on two local TV stations, inventing a nonexistent history of chronic medical conditions. Medical Examiner Dr. Michael Berkland ruled the case an accident, after giving conflicting information about Ms. Klausutis’ injuries. Berkland admitted he lied because "The last thing we wanted was 40 questions about a head injury." The good doctor previously had his license revoked in Missouri for falsifying information in an autopsy report and was suspended in Florida for six years.
DR. LAURA SCHLESSINGER , the right wing radio host family values queen, hasn’t spoken to her mother in 15 years and is estranged from her sister. She espouses moral decency, even though she once posed for nude photos which are available online. She openly opposes adultry, and claims: "Holy sex is between husband and wife. . . .Unholy sex is everything else", yet admits to having had sex before she was married, committing adultry while she was married, and moved in with a married man.
LARRY JACK SCHWARZ, parole board chairman and former Colorado state representative, was fired after child pornography was found in his possession. The pictures and material all involved family members. Schwarz is a father of five and has 16 grandchildren. During his first term, he listed "crime prevention and punishment" among his key issues.
REP. JOHN SCHMITZ (CA), a former John Bircher, was considered one of the most ultra rightwing members of Congress. Schmitz once referred to Richard Nixon and Ronald Reagan as Liberals and idolized Senator Joseph McCarthy. He was known for his outrageous attacks against gays, feminists and Jews. Well, wouldn’t you know it, he was forced out of office in 1982 for having an adulterous affair and fathering two children out of wedlock with one of his students. Like father, like daughter; Schmitz gained further notoriety as the father of pedophile Mary Kay LeTourneau, who was convicted of having an adulterous affair with one of her students, a boy of Samoan extraction. Schmitz, of course, tried to get his daughter off the hook by attempting to find a loophole in United States treaties with Samoa.
REP. DON SHERWOOD(PA) eventually admitted to an adultureous affair with a woman 30 years younger than him, after she accused him of physical abuse. Regardless, Sherwood was actively supported by family values neo-conservatives, such as Senator Rick Santorum.
TOM SHORTRIDGE, campaign consultant and former head of the South Bay Republican Club (Redondo Beach CA), was sentenced to three years probation for taking nude photographs of two teenage girls, 15 and 16 years of age, and both employees of his. His attorney claimed that Shortridge was approached by the girls, wanting their nude pictures taken. Yeah, right! Take a look at the photo of this behemoth and you decide! According to prosecutors, the reduced sentence for this horny toad was more than fair; it could have been a lot stiffer.
FRED C. SMELTZER, JR., City Councilman (Lancaster, PA), pleaded no contest to raping a 15 year-old girl at a Delaware campground, and served 6 months in prison. In a court affidavit, an acquaintance of Smeltzer’s claimed that he had raped his daughter at this campground. Due to laws which shield children’s identities in matters such as these, it was not revealed (but evident) that she was the actual victim of this crime. Smeltzer is now a registered sex offender.
CRAIG J. SPENCE, Republican lobbyist, was part of a major White House scandal during the 1980’s. Children from orphanages in Nebraska were transported around the United States by top Republican officials in order to engage in child sex orgies with America's ruling elite. Spence took friends and male prostitutes on late-night sexcursions to the White House. Spence also faced cocaine and gun possession charges. Unfortunately, this Republican really fell on his sword. He was found dead in a Boston hotel room. See, Paul Robert Balach, Charles K. Dutcher & Lawrence E. King, Jr..
JIMMY SWAGGART, is the televangelist who once said: “You boys and girls that have Beatle records at home, this is the most rotten, dirty, damnable, filthy, putrid filth that this nation or the world has ever known.” Wouldn’t you know it, Swaggart was caught in a seedy motel with a prostitute, being dirty, damnable and filthy. Ah, but God favors Republicans. Swaggart repented and was saved. President Bill Clinton also repented, but evidently he can never be forgiven and will rot in hell for his sins.
DAVID SWARTZ, Commissioner (Richmond County, OH), pleaded guilty to molesting two girls, which began at ages 6-7. Swartz admitted in court to having sex with the first girl. It was learned that the molestation took place for a decade. The 2nd occurred over a period of 5 years. He was sentenced to 8 years in prison.
RANDALL TERRY, Right to Life activist and founder of Operation Rescue, gained much of his notoriety in the Terri Schiavo protests. He was once imprisoned for sending former President Bill Clinton an aborted fetus. There is strong evidence Operation Rescue may have been responsible for the violence against abortion clinics. One of Terry’s fervent followers was charged with 2nd Degree murder of a doctor who performed abortions. As with most hypocrites, Terry’s personal life is filled with contradictions. He has campaigned against infidelity, yet he was censured by his church, for a "pattern of repeated and sinful relationships and conversations with both single and married women.” He has spoken out against unwed mothers, yet his daughter had 2 children outside wedlock. He has denounced homosexuals, yet his son is gay. True to his convictions, however, he has all but disowned both children. On his website, Terry appealed to his flock for donations to support Operation Rescue’s pro-life activities, but failed to disclose that the money would be used to purchase a new $432,000 house. At the same time a family court ruled that Terry, "was not paying a fair share of child support" regarding the children of his first wife.
REP. BILL THOMAS (CA) (See page 13 of this link), former chairman of the House Ways & Means Committee and cosponsor of the industry-sponsored Medicare reform legislation, had an adulterous affair with Deborah Steelman, a health care lobbyist. who bestowed humongous gifts to Thomas’ war chest. You see Ms. Steelman had the most to gain from this union. Her Washington firm received $2.4 million in lobbying fees from health interests, including $900,000 from pharmaceutical manufacturers.
SEN. STROM THURMOND, the rightwing family values standard-bearer whose racist history is well-documented, had sex with a 15-year old black girl which produced a child.
ROBIN VANDERWALL was a GOP strategist, Citadel Military College graduate, and 3rd year law student at Pat Robertson’s Regent University. He was also director of Faith & Family Alliance. Vanderwall helped funnel money from Jack Abromoff to Ralph Reed. In 2002, he was convicted in Virginia on five counts of soliciting sex with (what he thought were) children over the Internet. Like Brian J. Doyle, Vanderwall had played into a police sting operation. The Internet seems to be a favorite tool of GOP pedophiles.
JIM WEST, Mayor (Spokane, WA), supported a bill which, if it hadn’t failed, would have barred gays and lesbians from working in schools, day-care centers and some state agencies. He also voted to bar the state from distributing pamphlets telling people how to protect themselves from AIDS. To prove his worthiness with other family values Republicans, he proposed legislation that would criminalize “any touching of the sexual or other intimate parts of a person” among unmarried teenagers. As it turns out, the reason West was so viscious was that he was deep in the closet: West had a sexual affair with an 18 year old boy, and he propositioned what he thought was a high school senior over the Internet, offering an internship at City Hall for services rendered. The boy, we learn, was actually a computer consultant, hired by a newspaper to verify the mayor’s identity and presence on In other words, Jim was caught with his virtual pants down.
REP. KEITH WESTMORLAND (FL) was charged with seven felony counts of lewd and lascivious exhibition to girls under the age of 16. Shortly thereafter, he committed suicide. Ironically, Rep. Westmoreland had a bachelor's degree in criminal justice.
STEPHEN WHITE, better known to Penn students as Brother Stephen, was vocal in his condemnation of gays and sexual promiscuity in his campus preaching. He was also known for his abrasive methods and harassment of students as they passed him on campus. You can add Brother Stephen to the list of vicious GOP closet queens. He was sentenced to jail after soliciting a 14-year-old boy, offering $20 to perform oral sex on him.

War on Who?

War on Who?

[UNHOLY] Rev. Rick Scarborough is the guy pushing the Gospel of Hate Agenda in America. His "War on Christians" meeting held in the plush DC Omni Hotel was nothing less than conference to bash gays and the judicial branch of our government. Even if you think you don't like Rev. Al Sharpton, watch this video! Al is right on dead center correct. Christians are not being persecuted, but mainstream America (and all of us mainstream Christians) is growing very very tired of right wing dominionist extremists like Vision America/Rev. Rick pushing for a Christian Nation and World.

Braves DISinvite Focus

It is not time for all of American to join the Braves Organization and label Dr. James Dobson and his Focus on the Family group as unchristian and anti-gay focused? (or obsessed, rather!)

Dr. James Dobson and Focus on the Family feeds Lufkin's [UNHOLY] Rev. Rick Scarborough and his "Vision America" organization a lot of false information about gay people. Both organizations spend more time gay bashing than they do working on families or Visions for mainstream America.

Atlanta Braves DinInvites Focus on the Family

"Focus on the Family was on the team that promoted Major League Baseball’s first “Faith Days” event at Turner Field July 27, but the Atlanta Braves now say the anti-gay group headed by James Dobson is no longer part of its lineup.
“We have asked the promoter [Nashville-based Third Coast Sports] to not include Focus on the Family in our other two Faith Day events,” Beth Marshall, Braves spokesperson, said Aug. 1. “We do not feel it is an appropriate connection for Focus on the Family to be part of this event.”"


Why the Braves Organization "gets it" - and the AFA doesn't? Planting the seed for a more accepting and tolerant community takes work. Almost five years to the week this announcement was made by the Braves Organization. The full credit here really needs to go to two leaders who CAME OUT and introduced the Braves to Gay Atlanta (and America!) Thank you Margie Archer and Ray Hom of Atlanta, Georgia. Ray, thanks also for allowing Margie to throw the first pitch! Atlanta may not have won the bid for the Gay Games for 2006, but we all got a reminder last week of how important hard work and the simple act of Coming Out to those who do not know can be ....
  • My Personal Flashback from Five Summers Ago

DATE: Wednesday, August 8, 2001
LOCATION: Turner Field
Atlanta Braves vs. Houston Astros
Attended the Atlanta Games, Inc. "Gay and Lesbian Night at Turner Field" with a group of four friends and sat in a great box at Turner Field. It was a magical fun night in Atlanta. The Atlanta Games, Inc. (AGI) is the committee organizing Atlanta's bid for the Gay Games VII in 2006-the international Olympics of the gay community. AGI (, in cooperation with the Atlanta Braves, purchased 3,000 tickets in an effort to highlight support in Atlanta for the Gay Games bid. Representatives of the Federation of Gay Games have been in Atlanta all week, hosted by AGI, to review venues and the cultural scene before one of the four competing sites is selected. Atlanta is competing with Chicago, Los Angeles and Montreal for the 2006 Games.

This is the first time a major league baseball team has hosted a "Gay Night". With the Atlanta Gay Men's Chorus singing the national anthem, and Margie Archer throwing the ceremonial opening pitch, tonight's event was easily the "Who's Who" event of the month in Atlanta's gay scene.

  • Thanks to the Braves.

Other than the Ralph Reed retirement party, this last six months has been nothing but bad news for GLBT people living in Georgia (in my opinion) Including: FMA, Cathy Cox (dumbass), Mark Taylor (fatass), Governor (ass), legislation to roadblock Georgia's Gay Straight Alliances. Georgia Tech's bigoted little Indian girl/Bible thumper, etc etc.)

InnerVIEWS : Stella Byrd

Exclusive interview with the mother of Jasper, Texas, dragging victim James Byrd, Jr. - who speaks out about racial hate crimes in America.

Amazing mother, Amazing Christian. Thanks Mrs. Byrd

Hate Rally = Hate Crime

It amazes me how thest fundie extremist don't seem to get it. Every time they do something stupid like hold a hate rally to deport illegals, or to take the freedoms away from others, something crazy happens.

It is usually kids who shoot the windows out of buildings, or rape and sodomize the young Latin kid who is the subject of this story. Maybe if you people might spend a little more time working on your own damn "family values" - - maybe your little homeschooled kids wouldnt be out beating up or murdering kids like this one, or Matthew Shepard, or James Byrd, or Paul Broussard, or any of the dozens of examples.

Why not shut up about your persecuted religion (it is some other form of wacky Christianity, nothing I believe in) and do something to stop the violence coming downt he pike every time you get out and say or do something stupid.

Stop your Gospel of Hate Rev. Rick Scarborough at Vision America. It is nasty, evil, and won't get you where you seem to think you're headed. We've had enough of you people and don't want to go to where you are going. Round up Tom Delay and George Bush and Janet Folgers and your cult groupie friend Rev. Moon and his blow buddie Jerrry Falwell.

Be gone with you now! Leave us alone.

Fundies Opposing HPV Vaccines

Once again the Rev. Rick Scarborough's of the World show what lunatics they are by opposing HPV vaccinations in favor of abstinence only campaigns. Shoving abstinence only information to young teenagers with no safe sex information is just plain stupid.

Good news and information from the CDC site. It is nice to see that the fundie pastors haven't overthrown the experts/physicians/researchers at the CDC -- yet. George Bush is appointing so many unqualified folks to the CDS and AIDS commissions that is is just scary. It is great that Merck came through with this great vaccine. Go have your daughter get her first (of three) shots tomorrow!

Christian Leader. Bad Dad #2

Bad Dad of the Year Alan Chambers is joined by Randall Terry in Florida, running for the Senate. Seems like old Randall won't include his own son or his adopted daughter in campaign "family" photos. How tacky, but what should we expect from an abortion clinic terrorist disguised as a Christian Leader.

Sorry Jamail, but there is nothing good about your father really. He is a bad dad, a poor leader, and his family values need a reality check. Your dad also would have a problem with my dad - a physician involed in women's health care. Some of the Operation Rescue terrrorists probably are the same ones shooting holes in the windows of Planned Parenthood or picketing the national OB/GYN meeting informing physicians (namely gynecologists) that they are murderers.

It is time these idiot preachers stay out of medicine.

KKK Hate Ohio

They want you to be afraid of their organizations and fear that you are not safe from their members hiding behind white sheets or organizing militias in the woods, or planning hate rallies and a "christian" nation with no tolerance for your views or respect for your freedom. They are the KKK groups in Vidor and Cleveland, the New Black Panther Party, the Aryan Youth, the Homeschooled and Clueless Children of Religious Wackos, American Family Associations, Texas Republican Party Leadership, and even the former Pastors of Texas megachurches walking the halls of Congress or fighting to restrict stem cell research. They have a Vision for America at Vision America Mobilized of Lufkin, and sorry.....but you are not in it.

You are the wrong (fill in the blank) color, religion, gender, sexual orientation.

Why do these right wing Christian groups all share the exact same game book with the KKK people? (not all, but most of it!)

I think (my opinion) the KKK nationally is about to fall apart -- their fear isn't working. Some subsets of the KKK are now run by pimply faced idiots - little boy teenagers who have probalby never lived in a building with a foundation or running water. Groups like Vision America and the other Christian nationalist fundies will also fall apart because they share the same message of hate and many of the same positions (immigration, education, civil rights, marriage equality, prayer in school, ten commandments, abortion rights...and on and on...) I think I read that the little bigot who moved to Jasper after the Byrd murder moved from Ohio - possibly in a community near "Medina County" I must wonder? How great that the people of Jasper Texas have stood up to this idiot and said "sorry, no job. we don't need you here in East Texas" --

Prayer in School

from: Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal: [ ]

MARY THOMAS: Whose prayers do we want in our schools?
8/19/2006 9:55:26 PMDaily Journal

It was spring of last year, the week for middle school standardized tests. I was
standing in front of a 7th grade classroom serving as a proctor, watching as the
teacher carefully placed test booklets on each desk.

Just before the teacher gave
permission for the students to begin, I saw it. Several heads bowed in
prayer.Unsolicited and from the heart. Can there be a greater prayer?A more
powerful witness?

With school now in full swing, it seems an appropriate time to
bring up the ever-controversial topic of prayer in public schools.We've all
heard the argument - "They've taken God out of public schools."Well, someone
forgot to tell those 7th grade students that God no longer walks among them.

When 12- and 13-year-olds reverently bow their heads, especially when not
required to do so, God is present, indeed.Try this scenarioBut for argument's
sake, let's say the U.S. Supreme Court reversed the famous Engel v. Vitale
ruling, that prohibited schools from reciting any kind of prayer composed by
school districts:Tomorrow is the start of a new school week, and now prayer will
be part of the school's daily discipline. The news is spreading fast around
Tupelo, and thousands of Christians are pouring onto Gloster and West Main to
celebrate. A Prayer Parade has been organized by town churches. Neighbors are
calling neighbors. Prayer warriors are furiously typing emails with the good
news about the Good News.But, hold on a minute. Why are the Muslims dancing
beside the Christians? And, isn't that a Jewish family lighting sparklers? Why
are they so happy? And who told the Hindus they could have a float?Monday comes.
Hanging on a nail in one elementary classroom is a clipboard tightly grasping a
sheet of notebook paper. At the top, it reads "Prayer Preacher for the Day,"
with each student's name listed underneath. The teacher explains that, to be
fair and respectful to each child's faith, they will rotate prayers."Just think
of this as a spiritual show and tell," the teacher says.On Tuesday, the first
Prayer Preacher - Billy Hankins - walks to the front of the class. Billy's
prayer is from the heart, calling on God to save the souls of all
non-Christians. One of Billy's classmates and a recess buddy who attends a local
synagogue stares down at his desk.On Wednesday, Mary Margaret O'Malley proudly
marches to the front. As she opens a brown paper lunch bag and pulls out a
handful of plastic, glow-in-the-dark Rosaries, Mary Margaret announces they
would be saying a whole decade of the Hail Mary, praying especially for all the
souls in Purgatory.The teacher spews a mouthful of coffee all over the "Prayer
Preacher" clipboard.As class is dismissed for the day, a student runs up to the
already frazzled teacher and excitedly announces, " I can't wait til I pray
tomorrow. I'm bringing snakes!"Why it won't workDon't you see why organized
prayer would never work in public school? If it isn't our form of prayer, the
way we believe, the way we want our children to believe, we would be offended.
Instead, the spiritual formation of children belongs in the homes and in our
places of worship.Remember, Jesus always walked away from the crowds to be alone
with His Father. As far as His prayer life was concerned, He never felt the need
to "show and tell."Mary Thomas, a parent and community volunteer, lives in
Tupelo and writes as a community columnist. Her e-mail address is

Idiot Preachers Quoting Quacks

When I read the lies in Rev. Rick Scarborough's book Enough is Enough a few months ago I wanted to take the first plane to Lufkin and knock his teeth out. Some of the most offensive ridiculous things he has in his book are the work of the asshole in this article. Discredited and forced to move to Colorodo to work for a "Top Ten" Gospel of Hate Group Leader Dr. (of what?) Dobson. Quack Quack.

Last time I checked most gay people were not all that violent, but despite the fact that he played football at SHSU in Naconowhere, Texas I still feel confident that I could have kicked his ass. My first fight? Reminds me of the eighth grade where boys would go fight downt the street at the church.

I am much more creative than that. Question. Considering he is so certain that gay men like to eat "feces" as his book states - make me wonder......Is it legal to mail feces though the mail? Just wondering.

His office phone number is 866-522-5582 and I am sure that he might like to hear from you.

When ethical research doesn't work for you or your hate group - make up a great lie and spread it to all your little lambs in your shady little churches with no windows and too much big hair.

If you are a physician or a psychologist or an educated person in the medical field, I am sure you would stand with me to tell Rev. Rick Scarbourgh that this research is phony, false, or discredited. I am sure you might tell him that he should stop spreading lies and misinformation about gays and lesbians, enough with this absitenence only push which kills young people having sex, and stop pushing to limit stem cell research and laws to restrict or jail those who teach safe sex to our kids or put gynecologists in jail for offering women health care.

Your not a "doctor" Dr. Rev. Scaroborough. You are not being very Christian. Your Gospel of Hate will fail.

Not sure if the SPLC has listed theset guys as a hate group, they should. they are such nasty vile commentators.

You have to love it when the fanatics start calling the fanatics "liberal" and "gay friendly" The people at are the worst of the hate squad.

Fortunately, one of them died this year (Paul deParrie) and went off to prepare hell for Fred Phelps and the rest of his hateful friends. To accuse bigot Dobson of being "gay friendly" is ridiculous guys, give us all a break.

unChristian Hate Speech

It always amazed me that after the Shepard and Byrd hate murders a lot of the advocates against hate crimes legislation were the same "Christians" so eager to pass a prayer protection Act, or whatever biblical nonsense legislation they could dream of to make America a "Christian" nation. Why would our God reward such backwards hateful advocacy?

How Tragic. How Un-Christian.


A homemaker active in her children’s schools, Mrs. Dobrich said she had asked the board to develop policies that would leave no one feeling excluded because of faith. People booed and rattled signs that read “Jesus Saves,” she recalled. Her son had written a short statement, but he felt so intimidated that his sister read it for him. In his statement, Alex, who was 11 then, said: “I feel bad when kids in my class call me ‘Jew boy.Â’ I do not want to move away from the house I have lived in forever

Later, another speaker turned to Mrs. Dobrich and said, according to several witnesses, “If you want people to stop calling him Jew boy, you tell him to give his heart to Jesus.

...that's about when I proably would have hurled something heavy at the asshole who made this statement.

More Texas Preacher Quacks

Maybe instead of parading around the Country spreading the Gospel of Hate and organizing email blasts to Congress, some of these right wing fundies in Texas should set up a Shelter or Christian Camp for Wayward Christians, Adulterers, Druggies, etc.

Jimmy Swaggard and John Paulk and Tom Delay could lead sessions on how to make that big come back after that big pubicized screw up. Spread those Christian Family Values guys - some of your own messengers don't seem to be "getting it"

Texas preacher fundie megachurch "buy my books" Bishop Terry Hornbuckle is good at pulling in dollars, but can't keep his pants on obviously. Druggie, adulterer, rapist?, or Christian Family man? (you decide!)

Mega Churches Galore!

Stafford, Texas is a Houston suburb with one mega church per square foot. Considering this "War on Christians" that Rick Scarborough keeps barking about - looks like the mega churches do seem to be thriving.

These mega churches rake in mega dollars to pay for their fleet of high salary pastors, flat screen TV's, orchestras, high tech AV departments, Television production studios, marching bands, and helium balloons for the kiddies. Too frequently these same churches are the worst of the religious right when it comes to hate speech.

Maybe it is time to tax the churches - tax the preachers. We need it. George Bush has built up the largest federal debt load in the history of the United Steates.

Tom Delay Exterminated

Poor old Rick Scarborough at Vision America. His "hero" in Congress is going going gone. Good Riddance! Mainstream Republicans in Texas should get involved again in the GOP - and take back the party from these fundie right right wingers who call themselves "christian."
Tom Delay will go down in history as one of the most horrible legislators in the history of Congress. Go ahead Scarborough, stand by your man Tom Delay - and America laughs and says "you've just got to be kidding me, Rev. Rick" Delay aint no Saint, sir.

Not So Fast, Mr. DeLay

It looks as if Democrats will get to run against him after all.

Saturday, August 5, 2006; Page A18

AFEDERAL APPEALS court has ruled that former representative Tom DeLay (R-Tex.) must remain on the ballot as his party's congressional nominee in the 22nd District. Lawyers for the Texas Republican Party say they'll seek Supreme Court intervention, but -- given that a state court and two levels of federal courts have ruled against them -- it seems likely that Mr. DeLay will once again be the GOP standard-bearer in November. This would be a delicious irony and -- if Mr. DeLay were to lose -- a fitting coda to a career built on trying to manipulate rules to his political advantage.

KKK & Vision America Agree

Hello Drag Queen Turned John Paul??
Local KKK group planning to rally.
Rev. Rick Scarborough of Vision America supports KKK position...reportedly considers cosponsoring this KKK "Christian" rally.



The San Angelo chapter of a Ku Klux Klan group again is planning a rally against illegal immigration - this time in Amarillo.
The protest, planned for Aug. 5 at Amarillo City Hall, will be the second in as many months for the local white-supremacist group, whose June 17 rally in Midland sparked violent counter-protests.

''That's the beauty of the First Amendment,'' said Amarillo City Attorney Marcus Norris. ''Either it works for all, or it works for none.''
The group, affiliated with the Alabama-based Empire Knights of the Ku Klux Klan, was invited by Klan sympathizers in Amarillo to speak about the group's position on illegal immigration, said Lee Thompson, one of the group's leaders, in an e-mail.
On June 17, nearly two dozen San Angelo Klan members rallied on the Midland County Courthouse lawn, arguing against President Bush's proposed guest-worker program for illegal immigrants. Clashes between police and counter-protesters resulted in seven arrests, according to Midland police.
The group also staged a November rally, as part of a different KKK group, in Austin against gay marriage.
The Empire Knights is one of dozens of groups across the country claiming a KKK affiliation, although no national Klan has existed since the 1930s.
The group applied for a rally permit in early July, Norris said. The city granted it after placing restrictions on the sizes of signs and poles, to avoid the potential of their being used as weapons, he said.
Amarillo city officials are taking some lessons from Midland's experience, Norris said, further restricting counter-protesters and discouraging potential spectators from attending the rally.
Seventy-five Amarillo police officers - all veterans, Norris said, with no rookies or first-year officers - will patrol the rally, with support from Potter County deputies and Texas Department of Public Safety troopers.
''It's just one more political event in the city for us,'' Norris said. ''We've got to spend more money. I guess this is the price of living in a democracy.''

Evangelicals Who Get It!

Well Hallelujah! Praise the Lord. Amen, sister. It is rare and all, but....
Leave it to a pastor up in liberal Minnesota to preach such truth! Maybe some day he will figure out that God created many types of humans, including gays and lesbians. Rev. Boyd I suggest a Saturday afternoon road trip to UPTOWN Minneapolis - I lived in Minnesota for five years and have no idea where Maplewood is - regardless, God Bless Ya for almost gettin it!

“The Myth of a Christian Nation:
How the Quest for Political Power Is Destroying the Church
Rev. Gregory Boyd


Like most pastors who lead thriving evangelical megachurches, the Rev. Gregory A. Boyd was asked frequently to give his blessing — and the church’s — to conservative political candidates and causes.
The requests came from church members and visitors alike: Would he please announce a rally against gay marriage during services? Would he introduce a politician from the pulpit? Could members set up a table in the lobby promoting their anti-abortion work? Would the church distribute “voters’ guides” that all but endorsed Republican candidates? And with the country at war, please couldn’t the church hang an American flag in the sanctuary?
After refusing each time, Mr. Boyd finally became fed up, he said. Before the last presidential election, he preached six sermons called “The Cross and the Sword” in which he said the church should steer clear of politics, give up moralizing on sexual issues, stop claiming the United States as a “Christian nation” and stop glorifying American military campaigns.

“When the church wins the culture wars, it inevitably loses,” Mr. Boyd preached. “When it conquers the world, it becomes the world. When you put your trust in the sword, you lose the cross.”

Get Rich Quick Scam

Rick Scarborough overjoyed " I made it, I made it! Honey, I've just made the AU Top Ten List of Hateful Religious Bigots in America!"

Full Story (Americans United site)
"Scarborough’s effort to spark a national debate over Christians’ plight in the public square appears to have fallen flat. His conference, however, rife with over-the-top performances from a string of Religious Right warriors, did draw a smattering of media attention.
Americans United representatives attended the meeting to report on Scarborough’s efforts to advance the Religious Right agenda. The speakers focused on slamming gays, Hollywood, the media, federal judges and the public schools.
The majority of those who came to the microphone also had books to peddle – all of them about those liberal forces supposedly mobilized against evangelical Christians. Many of the books’ titles reflected the tone of the March 27-28 conference, such as: Home Invasion: Protecting Your Family In a Culture That’s Gone Stark Raving Mad; The Criminalization of Christianity; Silent No More: Bringing moral clarity to America while freedom still rings; and Same Sex Marriage: Putting Every Household at Risk.
Not far beneath the vitriolic and bombastic rhetoric were Scarborough’s pleas to evangelical Christians to turn out in large numbers on Election Day for candidates beholden to the Religious Right’s agenda.
Scarborough urged attendees to disseminate among their communities a “Values Voters” Contract with Con­gress,” which detailed what the so-called “values voter” should look for in candidates.
The document, which Scarborough said was endorsed by several leading Religious Right figures, stated that office seekers should support organized prayer in public schools and other public places, a constitutional amendment barring same-sex marriage, laws restricting reproductive rights and limits on the power of federal courts to hear constitutional cases.
A week before the conference, Scarborough sent an e-mail to his supporters boasting about his involvement in a meeting with congressional leaders. Scarborough claimed that after he distributed the values voters’ contract, one of the congressional leaders told him during a break that the document was “the most visionary thing” gleaned from the meeting.
Scarborough has a relatively small operation at present, but he aspires to a larger role in politics. His Lufkin, Texas-based organization took in only $823,000 in fiscal year 2004. Of that sum, $115, 800 went to pay Scarborough’s salary."

[UNHOLY] Rev. Rick On Knees

Rev. Rick:
Fall to Your Knees!
While you are down there and all, think about praying for your own rear end. Spreading such hatred in America puts you on the short bus with Rev. Fred Phelps up in front. Stay on your knees, pray that you find a clue. Pray that not one more person is killed due to what is coming from your Gospel of Hate.

Hey Michelle:
Next time wear heavy boots and kick the girly-voiced preacherman right in his tiny gonads, please.

At the conclusion of the banquet, the Rev. Rick Scarborough,
founder of the Judeo-Christian Council for Con­stitutional Restoration,
demanded that all the men in the room get down on their knees for 10 minutes of

Several attendees took turns leading the prayers.
One of them cried out, “Father, we echo the words of the apostle Paul, because we know Judge Greer claims to be a Christian. So as the Apostle Paul said in First Corinthians 5, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, when you are gathered together, with the power of our Lord Jesus Christ, deliver such a one to Satan for the
destruction of the flesh, that his spirit may be saved in the day of our Lord
Jesus.” As reporter Michelle Goldberg of noted, “It sounded like a prayer for death.”


Evil Nasty Ho

Do you hate her? What a mean, nasty woman.
Not real "Christian" honey.

Don't Tell, Just Hate

Forget the "don't tell" part - it's now OK to fire people who are "thought" to be gay, or those interested in those "gaylike" hobbies? Welcome to George Bush's "can't quite get it right" military. God Bless Our Soldiers. Shame on our Leader. (and shame on you Bill Clinton for asking people to lie) What isn't true, just make something up!
