Religion Update

RELIGION UPDATE…. Earlier today I said that although we liberals should be more accomodating toward religion, it was still perfectly OK to blast away at folks who use religion as a thin cover for “their own little liberal-hate cults.” Well, this is the guy I was talking about. Feel free to spare no invective against cretins like this. Better yet, demand that if conservatives don’t loudly denounce him then they obviously support what he’s saying.

This fellow was at the big abortion rally today, and speaking of abortion, here’s what Karen Hughes had to say about it today:

I think that after September 11, the American people are valuing life more and we need policies to value the dignity and worth of every life….Really, the fundamental issue between us and the terror network we fight is that we value every life.

So if you get an abortion, you’re no better than Osama.

Ten minutes from normal, my ass. Try 23 hours.

UPDATE: Apparently the New York Times dumped the Karen Hughes quote in favor of some different ones for the final version of the story. That’s why the quote doesn’t show up in the linked article.
