Can Anyone Be Too Radical For Today's GOP?
I just have to ask if there will ever come a time when Republican members of Congress will be held accountable for the Religious Right activists with whom they willingly associate:
On Tuesday, March 16, at 8:30 p.m. EST, Family Research Council's legislative lobbying arm FRC Action will host a live webcast, "National Townhall on Health Care: Stop the Government Takeover." The webcast will mobilize tens of thousands of supporters only days before an expected vote on "The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act," a health care reform bill that the United States Senate passed on Christmas Eve, 2009.
Tony Perkins, President, FRC Action
Rep. Tom Price, M.D. (R-GA)
Rep. Mike Pence (R-IN)
Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN)
Marjorie Dannenfelser, President, Susan B. Anthony List
Kristan Hawkins, Executive Director, Students for Life
Douglas Johnson, Legislative Director, National Right to Life
Bryan Fischer, American Family Association
Tom McClusky, Senior Vice President, FRC Action
More to be announced...
So that is three GOP members of Congress who are going to be joining with the AFA's Bryan Fischer who, in recent months, has declared that all Muslims should be banned from the military, homosexuality should be illegal and all gays should be treated like criminals, praised Ryan Sobra for his anti-gay rant at CPAC, and called for the stoning of a killer whale at Sea World.
Just how utterly radical does a Religious Right activist have to be in order to become toxic to Republican members of Congress, considering that one who openly calls for the criminalization of gays is deemed perfectly acceptable?
