Religious Supremecists Vow Revenge

I'm being politically correct today and using the term "religious supremecists" for those I have heretofore called "theocrats." Frankly, I'm not inclined to be shy about using the term "theocracy" but theocrats don't seem to be offended as much by being labeled "religious supremecists."

Whatever you call them, a couple Religious News Service reporters have published a revealing article about the reaction of the "Religious Right" to the filibuster compromise in the Senate. John McCain is squarely in their cross-hairs.

Battle lines have clearly been drawn in the battle for the soul of the Republican Party. Democracy may hang in the balance.

I saw a movie this weekend with a great quote.

"Revenge is the lazy person's way of mourning"

Interesting.

Vengeance is also being poured out upon cancer-stricken Sen. Arlen Specter (R-PA) after his support of lifting some of the restraints on embryonic stem cell research. The American Family Association has called him the "poster child" of "the culure of death."

It is very dangerous to cross the religious right. Hell hath no fury like a theocrat scorned.

Peace,

Mike
