Loads O' Nonsense
Here's a particularly frenetic call to arms
for the Democrats from a former Kerry campaign worker. Here's a taste:Over the past five years, the Republican Party has moved from a party different from ours, but one that at its center held many of the core American beliefs that Democrats do to the pary of neo-conservative and religious extremists. This shift is most clearly shown in the difference between the two President Bush's (sic). With the elder, there was a middle ground that we could agree on. Now there simply is no middle to move to. A fact the Clintons have yet to grasp.
This is a pretty obvious lie:When Governor of Texas, George Bush spearheaded a change to that state's constitution so that it starts, "Texas is a Christian state." If you are Jewish, or Muslim, or Buddhist, or any other religion other than Christian, you are a second-class citizen in the state of Texas. You may not want to believe this, or you may believe that you have other protections, but the fundamental fact remains: Texas is a Christian state and you're not Christian.
In fact, as a commenter pointed out, you can read the entire Texas Constitution
online; the word "Christian" does not appear in it at all.
