What Republican Leaders REALLY Think About the Christian Right
"One thing that God has brought to us is Terri Schiavo, to help elevate the visibility of what is going on in America," Mr. DeLay told a conference organized by the Family Research Council, a conservative Christian group. A recording of the event was provided by the advocacy organization Americans United for Separation of Church and State. "This is exactly the issue that is going on in America, of attacks against the conservative movement, against me and against many others."
Here is what we now know what members of DeLay's money machine had to say about them behind their backs:
"The wackos get their information through the Christian right, Christian radio, mail, the internet and telephone trees," Scanlon [a former DeLay aide, now indicted--ed.] wrote in the memo, which was read into the public record at a hearing of the Senate Indian Affairs Committee. "Simply put, we want to bring out the wackos to vote against something and make sure the rest of the public lets the whole thing slip past them."
Conceal your contempt, use them, then toss them aside. Enough said?
