This is twisted logic even for fundamentalist Christians

OK, seriously. Seriously.

Church: Gays to blame for Iraq war

I really just have to quote one part from the Atlanta Journal-Constitution article here:

"The church members testified they are following their religious beliefs by spreading the message that soldiers are dying because the nation is too tolerant of homosexuality."

I can't possibly make this stuff up. Go on. Click that link above and check it out. Wow.

Nah, soldiers aren't dying because Bush/Cheney/Rumsfeld and more have sent them to war. They're not dying because of lack of equipment, or too much equipment. They're not dying because of oil, or Bush's greed, or Halliburton, or even terrorists. They're apparently not dying for freedom anymore, or to "defend our way of life." (I love that phrase. And by "love" I of course mean "laugh at it incessantly.") Nope, all of those are gone and we've now discovered the REAL reason that soldiers are dying in Iraq. Because we tolerate the gays.

Wow. I'm so glad we have this Baptist church around to enlighten us.

Oh my gosh, and all this time I thought our country was founded on the principles of tolerance and religious freedom... Of course, the Baptists can think, believe and preach anything they want to with impunity because our country is founded on the principles of tolerance and religious freedom. They don't get it, do they?

See the segment about this last night on 20/20?
So thoroughly insane - and more than one member of the Phelps family is a licensed attorney!
