Hypocrisy of the religious right
The Washington Post asks a damn good question:
Why in recent years have conservative Christians asserted their influence on efforts to relieve Third World debt, AIDS in Africa, strife in Sudan and international sex trafficking -- but remained on the sidelines while liberal Christians protest domestic spending cuts?
You have to read the explanations of conservative leaders to believe them. Some say it's a matter of priority...abortion is more important; some say helping the poor isn't the arena of government; the real truth shines through: they know where their political power comes from: Republicans.
