This blog used to be about politics. Not so much anymore as I have worked through my fascination with that subject. It now seems appropriate that with a new president and the end of the Bush nightmare that I move on to new subjects that are more in line with my current interests. I may still occasionally express an opinion about political matters but for the most part I will be commenting on music, photography and personal observations. Thank you for reading.

Over the Top
Wow, I saw this on Streak's Blog, who writes about the right wing from a moderate Christian's point of view.

Remember that email from the GOP that said that "Democrats are singularly focused on obstruction and over-the-top rhetoric"?

Well, here is a GOPper, John Hostettler, on the floor of the House:

“The long war on Christianity in America continues today on the floor of the United States House of Representatives. It continues unabated with aid and comfort to those who would eradicate any vestige of our Christian heritage being supplied by the usual suspects, the Democrats.”

He also said, “Like moths to a flame, Democrats can’t help themselves when it comes to denigrating and demonizing Christians.”

Is that "over-the-top"? Democrats want to "eradicate any vestige of our Christian heritage"? There is a "war on Christianity" being waged by Christians themselves? This is where I always try to post up a link to Adherents.com, which lists out the religious affiliations of our representatives in the House and Senate

Even if you include the Quaker (Rush Holt of (D)New Jersey), and the Unitarian (Kent Conrad (D) North Dakota) in with the Jews (all eleven in the House are Democrats) as the non-Christians you still have over 92% Christian representation in the House.

What are we to assume from John Hostettler's remarks?

  • That Christians are waging a war on their own religion from positions of power in the government?

  • That Democratic members of the House who claim to be Christians are not really Christians, but only pretend to be so that they can destroy Christianity from the inside?

  • That he was only referring to the non-Christians in the Democratic party when he refers to "the democrats", because referring to "the jews" would be blatently anti-semitic?

  • That he was engaging in "over-the-top" rhetoric?

  • Any other options I might have missed?

    Hey, you called me moderate! that might be a first!
