Here is a frightening image…Newt’s picks for his Faith Freedom Coalition.
This is like a class photo of the most likely to take us into Armeggedon.
The combined ignorance and hate promoted by all of these individuals is mind-numbing.
Bev LeHaye is head of, “Concerned Women for America” who makes a living much like Phyllis Schlafly traversing the country touting patriarchal supremacy and they themselves are working women on the road
Tim is author of the “Left Behind” books and he also founded the ultra-conservative theocrat-making organization, “Council for National Policy” that meets in secret and can make or break republican candidates
Mat is VP at Liberty U that works to twist the minds of its graduates to believe that imposing their brand of Christianity on all Americans has anything what-so-ever to do with the definition of “liberty”
George Barna has made a tidy living out of not only passing the collection plate, but using statistics to sound smarter than his audiences while skewing facts to favor Dominionist goals
Don Wildmon, founder of the hate group American Family Association and a leader in hate toward gays for fear that “homosexuals will become the elite class and Christians will be relegated to second class citizens”, a perfectly reasonable statement *cough*
Jim Garlow, political preacher and business pal of Newt is a blatant advocate of the “Pulpit Freedom Movement” (like that isn’t what happens every day now) and check out his video on my sidebar where I have had that available for a couple of years now…he explains the 7 Mountains mandate to us…
Here is their top salesman, Lance Wallnau, performing his 7 Mountains act for a church congregation…
…and finally Mr. washed-up-movie-guy that hung out with Huckabee in the 08 movie trailer of the GOP.
Kyle at Right Wing Watch wrote a great article about this cadre of self-appointed moral compasses.
All of the links I have provided will give you more detailed information about each one of these folks. You will find a recurring meme running through all of their rhetoric and propaganda – anti-homosexual, anti-abortion, anti-poor people, anti-immigrant, pro-religion (as long as it is their scripture-twisted version), and blantant racism (are you listening J.C. Watts?)
I know that Newt is slipping behind and the two bobbing at the top of the GOP cesspool are now Santorum and Romney. Santorum will quickly swing these sanctimonious theocrats if he remains the frontrunner and last man standing against Romney. Santorum makes Newt’s religio-politics look almost tame by comparison. Romney – well, there is that basic problem that political Christians cannot overlook – he is Mormon.
