Bible Pamphlet Causes democRAT Uproar

Senators Slam Republican Party for Bible Pamphlet
Sep 30, 5:42 PM (ET)

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Democratic U.S. senators from the electoral battleground states of West Virginia and Arkansas slammed the Republican National Committee on Thursday for a pamphlet that suggested liberals would ban the Bible.
"Two weeks ago, the Republican National Committee sent a mass mailing to West Virginians suggesting that liberals -- in other words, everyone but Republicans -- are out to ban the Bible," Sen. Robert Byrd, a West Virginia Democrat, said on the Senate floor.

If the democRATS do not want that picture to be easily applied to them, they need to stop supporting things that go against the Bible (gay marriage, partial birth abortion and any other form of abortion, adultery, drug use, removal of God from American society {the enforcement of the mythical "seperation of Church and state"}, etc.)

"What a ridiculous claim! It is a flat-out, no-doubt-about-it, silly, sophomoric charge," Byrd said. "The Republican National Committee is spreading this tripe to smear Democrats, and the president ought to demand that the Republican National Committee apologize to the people of West Virginia."

Maybe Mr. Byrd should apologize to the black Americans he railed against in his past

"I hope that there will be an apology for their claims that Democrats want to ban the Bible and the inference that Democrats for some reason cannot have a faith as close or as deeply held as the other party," Lincoln said on the Senate floor. "I find that to be the pit, the absolute bottom of what is wrong in the political process."

A spokeswoman for the Republican National Committee confirmed the mailing was sent to Arkansas and West Virginia, stressing it addressed the issue of "activist judges."

"When the Massachusetts Supreme Court sanctioned same sex marriage and people in other states realized they could be compelled to recognize those laws, same sex marriage became an issue. Activist judges also want to remove the words 'under God' from the pledge of allegiance," spokeswoman Christine Iverson said in an e-mail.

The e-mail noted the mailing did not mention the word "Democrats."

This last part tells it all. The pamphlet does not even mention democRATS, but they know they are guilty and they take offense at their sins being brought to the light. (In John 3.19-20 Jesus says, "And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed." NKJV)
