"Loonies," "the American Taliban," "Frist Jihadists," "the Ayatollah bin Dobson"- all these terms and more were thrown at evangelical Christians last week as the controversy surrounding the abuse of the filibuster by Senate Democrats grew in scope and volume...
...It is certainly true that evangelical leaders typically oppose same-sex marriage and demand an end to filibusters of people of faith like Judge William Pryor - a devout Catholic whom Sen. Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) found unsupportable because of Mr. Pryor's "deeply held beliefs."
It's hard not to read an editorial, letter to the editor, or even a "news" article these days without a good dose of Christian bashing.
Note: I disagree with title of this column "New McCarthyism" because I don't believe in old "McCarthyism." Senator Joe McCarthy was a great American patriot who was clearly right about many of the communist spies in this country.
