What Would Jesus Think of the Religious Right?

The radical right – be it the Christian coalition, the white supremacists, the neo-nazis and others – are the embodiment of all that is ugly in America. They prey on the weak-minded, the lonely and the psychopaths of society. They preach a gospel of hate and intolerance which goes against the very essence of what the Bible teaches. In this group I would include the Limbaughs, Savages, Falwells and Dobsons, for beneath their cloak of pious indignation, the message is clear – if your neighbor is not white, Christian, heterosexual or American-born, then fear them.

Another example of the ugly, venomous talk which emanates from the religious right all too often.

Southern Baptist Pastor Wiley Drake
Drake said he and his prayer warriors had been praying for Murtha’s death for four or five months.
Here is Drake talking to Alan Colmes last June.

The radical right – be it the Christian coalition, the white supremacists, the neo-nazis and others – are the embodiment of all that is ugly in America. They prey on the weak-minded, the lonely and the psychopaths of society. They preach a gospel of hate and intolerance which goes against the very essence of what the Bible teaches. In this group I would include the Limbaughs, Savages, Falwells and Dobsons, for beneath their cloak of pious indignation, the message is clear – if your neighbor is not white, Christian, heterosexual or American-born, then fear them.

Wiley Drake is just another example of the insidious ways of these people.
