They'll get what they deserve. Backers of Gay Marriage Ban Use Social Security as Cudgel.

Har-de-har-har-har. They fostered the blasphemous cult-worship of GWB as the new Messiah -- now they get the reality of the most "political" president in recent memory. He was never a principled person, much less a dyed-in-the-wool Christian fundamentalist. He doesn't even often attend church or demonstrate much knowledge of the Bible. But his speechwriters do! How often do these guys have to put their faith in a politician and be disappointed before they realize that God cautioned against such for a reason?

Billy Graham and his support of the corrupt Richard Nixon should have been a wake-up call.

I'm usually loathe to criticize religionists who have helped others to find their way to God. But
isn't it ironic that the most devout evangelical (Southern Baptist, to be precise) politicians, Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton, are both despised by most of their own evanglical Christian brethren?

I can't find it in Google, but both The Sage and I vividly remember an interview with Billy Graham in his later years where he confessed that his biggest mistake was in equating Christianity with "Americanism" and thus with Republican politics.

Would that he, or his son-and-heir Franklin, would speak such again. I cannot but conclude, from my observations of current "Christian right" rhetoric, that God the Father will say to them at the end, "I knew you not."
