Theocratic Reactions to Filibuster Compromise

Tony Perkins,"Concession is not an option. . . . If these wavering Republican senators, after four decades of judicial activism that has created an environment of hostility to people of faith, cut and run at this critical moment when irrationally senseless activist courts are gaining in influence they ensue the end of Republican control and will likely cause the loss of the White House and potentially Congress by 2008."

James Dobson, "This Senate agreement represents a complete bailout and betrayal by a cabal of Republicans and a great victory for united Democrats. . . .We share the disappointment, outrage and sense of abandonment felt by millions of conservative Americans who helped put Republicans in power last November. I am certain that these voters will remember both Democrats and Republicans who betrayed their trust."

Gary Bauer, "The Republicans who lent their names to this travesty have undercut their President as well as millions of their most loyal voters. Shame on them all."

Paul Weyrich, "Once again, moderate Republicans have taken the victory and thrown it overboard."

I'll be adding additional quotes as they become available.

One can hope...

It really is all or nothing for folks who hold such theocratic notions of the world.

It's their way, I mean, God's way or the highway! :)

I thought it was the Democrats that blinked and caved in. Guess that's a sure sign of compromise, neither side likes it.

Tony Perkins had the gall to say that "our side never made this about religion...I condemn religious bigotry when it appears on either side of the aisle, where is the outrage from the left?"

Thou shalt not lie.

Sorry for the outbound links, but more here and here.
