Virginia Republican Lt. Governor candidate "Bishop" E.W. Jackson really knows how to bring the crazy....

The “anti-God” party - Salon.com

He continued: “I said it because I believe that the Democrat Party has become an anti-God party, I think it’s an anti-life party, I think it’s an anti-family party. And these are all things I think Christians hold to very dearly.”

Let's disect this. The first point, "anti-god" is simply not true. Anything that christians think is anti-god is simply pro-constitution, pro-knowledge, pro-science etc. etc. I'm an uber lefty and am certainly not anti-god...I don't believe in a god, so how can I be "anti" something I don't believe in? This falls along the lines of those christians that atheists "hate god." Basic language is not their forte it would seem.

What about anti-life? There is a push nationwide by many Democrats to abolish the death penalty. I'm in that camp...it's outdated, barbaric and best left to the past. Even many catholics I know are against capital punishment. On the other have, most "evangelicals" I know are unashamedly pro-death in this regard. Hello Texas?

Anti-family doesn't describe any democrat I know. The most glaring example is our support of same-sex relationships and same-sex adoption. What better way to keep a family together than marriage (according to Republicans anyway, I've been a single father for a decade and my kid turned out OK....I think? Democrats also support food assistance for the needy, healthcare for all, and a plethora of other social safety systems to help families of all types. So anti-family?

I actually X/Ped this last night, but was afraid to flood TA with posts :)

Well, that's it. I'm switching my registration from independent to Democrat.

Anti-Life? I don't understand, are democrats organizing mass suicides? Or euthanizing everyone that registers to vote for them? Not very sound business strategy.

The author's point that the Republicans aren't serious about inclusion is right on. This nation's demographics changed while they were not looking (or praying). Most of the voters are "those people" to paraphrase their Mormon 2012 candidate.

I'm thankful for the Tea Party, Palin's Bachman's, Cruz's, and so on. I think Republicans would be winning more elections without them. W also made some lasting impressions.
