"...Being a Christian is No Excuse For Being Stupid."

As Right Wing extremist James Dobson and his minions from Focus on the Family criss-cross the country holding rallies and using the pulpit as a tool to service their political agenda of restricting reproductive rights, preventing equal rights for homosexuals, and bringing religion into the science classroom, a surprisingly candid interview with former Republican House Majority Leader Dick Armey reveals growing tension between the religious fundamentalists who control the Republican Party today, and the small government fiscal Conservatives of yester-year.

In a question and answer session with Ryan Sager, author of The Elephant in the Room: Evangelicals, Libertarians and the Battle to Control the Republican Party Armey answers the following question:

Why does it seem Christian conservatives are more powerful now than in the 1990s?

"To a large extent because Dobson and his gang of thugs are real nasty bullies. I pray devoutly every day, but being a Christian is no excuse for being stupid. There’s a high demagoguery coefficient to issues like prayer in schools. Demagoguery doesn’t work unless it’s dumb, shallow as water on a plate. These issues are easy for the intellectually lazy and can appeal to a large demographic. These issues become bigger than life, largely because they’re easy. There ain’t no thinking."


Gee Dick, thanks for the candor. It would have been nice to hear this from you
while you were still in office, but better late than never I suppose. Is there
anything else about the current Republican Congress that's bothering you?

"The criteria of choice in just about every behavior you see in Congress today is politics. Where in the hell did this Terri Schiavo thing come from? There's not a conservative, Constitution-loving, separation-of-powers guy alive in the world that could have wanted that bill on the floor. That was pure, blatant pandering to James Dobson. That's all that was. It was silly, stupid, and irresponsible. Nobody serious about the Constitution would do that. But the question was will this energize our Christian conservative base for the next election."
Easy now Dick. I know you're not minceing words when it comes to how you feel about Dobson, but you just said the H-word! Man that could get you in a lot of trouble!

Congratulations, and thank you to Representative Dick Armey for speaking out in favor of real conservative values like small government and religious freedom, rather than pandering to religious zealots in order to gain political power.

My boyfriend and I met three years ago on herpes dating site so we discovered we are +ve from the beginning of our relationship, that we both had genital herpes. My first outbreak was the ABSOLUTE worst experience, I was so sick. We suffered for one year plus, had constant outbreaks and then finally we decided to both respectively take Dr Utu African Traditional Herbs as advised by friends.
