Right Wing Leftovers

  • The group of right-wingers who gathered to protest David Letterman yesterday were outnumbered by members of the media, but still managed to get lots of attention for saying things like Letterman “rapes children with his mouth.”
  • Senator John Ensign has admitted that he had an extramarital affair with a member of his campaign staff and stepped down from his position as chairman of the Senate Republican Policy Committee.
  • Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal is asking organizers of the “Jindal for President Draft Council” to disband the organization.
  • The Family Research Council is predictably unhappy with President Obama’s decision to extend benefits to same-sex partners of federal employees, calling it a violation of the Defense of Marriage Act.
  • A former Regent University law school assistant dean who was convicted of sex acts with underage girls has been ordered to serve 16 years in prison.
  • Changes really are afoot at Focus on the Family: Men no longer have to wear ties and women no longer have to wear skirts or dresses.
  • The Christian Defense Coalition and others are organizing a prayer vigil at George Tiller’s now-closed clinic. The vigil is not for Tiller, but rather to pray “that no abortions would ever be performed in the city again.”
  • Finally, John Lofton wants it made clear that even though Tiller’s work was entirely legal, it was actually illegal:
  • [K]illing by abortion of innocent human beings, in their earliest stage of development, was mass murder. Murder can never be “legal” because God’s Law prohibits it. Thus, none of Tiller’s abortions were “legal.”

    To those who say Tiller’s mass murders were “legal” because abortion has been made “legal” by various “laws” and/or court rulings, this assertion is also false. Man-made “laws” that contradict God’s Law are not law.
