Jaw Dropping Buffoonery From the Religious Right

If you have not heard of the latest jaw-dropping buffoonery from the Old Guard of the Religious Right, you surely will want to check out Brendan's article on it here, which he's published on his blog, Off the Beaten Path.

As usual, Brendan not only reports on what's going on with the Old Guard, but provides an exceptional commentary on what it implies about them, along with a factual and damning criticism.

I'm thankful that I don't always agree with Brendan. If I always agreed with him, it would be less pleasurable to read him. But this time around, I am compelled to agree that the Old Guard of the Religious Right is morally sick. I think Brendan does a very good job substantiating that claim in his article.

The moral sickness of the Old Guard should concern us all. There are millions of evangelicals in this country and many of them follow the Old Guard. Evangelicals are not going to disappear from America any time soon. So, it behooves us to take an interest in their moral health. We are, after all, all in this society together, and such a large faction of society cannot be morally ill without it in some ways affecting us all.
