Right Wing Leftovers

  • Given that Liberty University and its students have been at war with the Lynchburg City Council over its refusal to move the polling place to LU’s campus, it is rather interesting that a Liberty U student has now decided to run for a seat on the City Council.
  • Gary Bauer claims that the Obama administration’s efforts to deal with the economic crisis have really been about “exploiting economic anxiety to destroy a successful law in pursuit of their goal of massively and permanently expanding the welfare state.”
  • Louis Farrakhan pulls a Pat Robertson.
  • Day Gardner defends Rep. Trent Franks, saying “Face it America, he’s right! Abortion has exacted a greater toll on blacks than slavery.”
  • Baptist Press glowingly reports on the church’s efforts to convent Mormons in Utah and free them from their “spiritual darkness” so that they can “get real with God.”
  • Finally, quote of the day from the Family Research Institute: “”It is the ‘nature’ of most homosexuals to ‘do their thing’ — and the more public the better. This characteristic has been noted throughout history. Sex, to the homosexually addicted, is close to the be-all and end-all of life. Why else have 300,000 male homosexuals died of AIDS, even though the mechanism — penile-anal sex — has been known since 1983? Why else do so many homosexuals engage in public sex? Why are there ‘gay pride’ parades? How else to explain Adam Lambert?”
