It is true- just ask our lunatic friends on the far right:
This month, as in every December since he took office, President Bush sent out cards with a generic end-of-the-year message, wishing 1.4 million of his close friends and supporters a happy “holiday season.”
Many people are thrilled to get a White House Christmas card, no matter what the greeting inside. But some conservative Christians are reacting as if Bush stuck coal in their stockings.
“This clearly demonstrates that the Bush administration has suffered a loss of will and that they have capitulated to the worst elements in our culture,” said William A. Donohue, president of the Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights.
Bush “claims to be a born-again, evangelical Christian. But he sure doesn’t act like one,” said Joseph Farah, editor of the conservative Web site WorldNetDaily.com. “I threw out my White House card as soon as I got it.”
You have to read the whole thing to get the full taste of lunacy from these folks. And it is funny- their approach to everything is evident in this piece. The uncontrolled anger and rage, the sense of betrayal, the exclusivity, the inability to recognize their are others out there who might celebrate the ‘Holidays’ differently than they do, and that Bush must answer to those people as well.
And it would be also wise to keep in mind that these are the folks whose religious beliefs dictate to them that intelligent design is a scientific theory, that the goal of Middle East policy is the rapture, that stem cell research is tantamount to murder, that they should have the right to determine your end of life decisions, that they should be able to refuse to fill your prescriptions at the pharmacy, that they should have the right to dictate who you date, who you have sex with, how you have sex, and who and how you marry, as well as any number of other things. And they have had an overly active say in running the show in this administration.
