Democrats, in the name of tolerance, plan to demonize conservative Christians as being like the Taliban, according to an article in Newsweek.

Democrats "are planning a daring assault on the most critical turf in politics: the cultural mainstream," political correspondent Howard Fineman writes.

This probably won't come as a surprise to anyone, but the New York Times appears to be working off the same page as the Democratic Party.

The New York Times is the Democratic Party.

Comparing the religious Christian right to the Taliban simply won't pass the suspension of disbelief test with most Americans who are otherwise somewhat apart from the CR. The Dems won't do it. They are not suicidal idiots. Whomever is pushing this scenario is on crack on this one IMO.

I'm hoping that drugs have killed the last brain cells from the liberal 60s.

Dadgum, I had to move away from the monitor to read that. I'm old, but I ain't that old.

When I read specious comparisons such as this, it makes me question the logical thinking of liberals. Hmm. So, if extremists of any nature are inherently evil, what say they about the tree-hugging pagan environmentalists who worship flora as if it spawned them? After all, rightwing extremists get violent at times, but tree-hugging whale lovers get violent much more often. Methinks the DemonRats are on the re-entry fizzle. Who in the hell would believe anything they say?

Democrats aren't stupid. They're very clever and have some intelligence. If they try to do this they can kiss goodbye to ever winning an election again. Period.

I thought the 'Old Grey Lady' was the Dem Party's 'House Organ'. At least that's the way their stories have been reading for years.

They are not out to convince anyone, they want to motivate their base to get out and vote. This will be targeted at Jews--a Jewish version of the Black dragged behind a pickup truck ad. That one was very effective. I'm hearing and seeing the Taliban connection already in Palm Beach County. Editorial cartoon the other day in the Sun Sentinel had Tom Delay dressed up as Bin Ladin.Randi Rhodes on WJNO hammers the Taliban connection daily. The condo critters eat this stuff up.

Yes, it may be true that the NYT is the democrat party, but they aren't saying anything new! It's just the same ol' same ol' stuff. They think we're evil and they're not afraid to say we are. They think we're stupid and they're not afraid to say we are.

There's just one problem - the public isn't buying it anymore. I firmly believe that on Sept 11, America woke up out of her slumber and took her blinders off. The libs may still be here spouting their garbage, but the PUBLIC is not buying it.

It does seem that to make it a campaign issue (I assume that's what they're talking about) would earn them a Darwin Award. If they have the audacity to attack George W. Bush for this they will look like they're attacking Mr. Clean.

#12 ONE WORLD GOVERNMENT / RELIGION

"Who is a liar, but be who denieth that Jesus is the Christ? This is Antichrist, who denieth the Father, and the Son." - 1 St. John 2:22 --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

UNITED NATIONS "You have allowed the evil to grow strong in your country. You will remove from your country this seat of evil [U.N.] that grows strong in your city. The mark of the beast has labeled your city Babylon! Open your heart and eyes now to the truth, before it is too late. You are being blindly led to your own destruction. The brood of vipers [U.N.] within your city must be removed at once!" - Our Lady, February 1, 1972

GRAND MASTERS "There are masters in the world, grand masters in the world, who now seek to govern the lives of every man, woman, and child. They are gathering together to bring mankind under servitude."My children, you are aware of one arm of the octopus that you know as communism. I assure you, My children, that is but one small arm of the octopus that is reaching out in all directions upon earth to engulf man and enslave him. These arms reach out to promote a one-world government and a one-world religion, a religion that shall not have My Son as its head. The greatest harm to mankind is being promoted through the channel of My Son's Church. Many who wear the red hats have not turned to My Son. They reject His Divinity; they reject Him as part of the Godhead. They reject Him as their God, and they have joined forces with the prince of darkness and his consorts." - Our Lady, December 28, 1976

BLINDNESS "My children, remove the blindness from your hearts and your eyes. Can you not recognize what is happening?" - Our Lady, December 7, 1977

GOD ALONE "No man shall set himself to rise above his God and command the power of his God." - Jesus, February 10, 1977

OCTOPUS "My Mother explained to you the plan for the takeover of the Seat of Peter by a select group. In 1975 a message of truth was given to mankind of the great length the evil ones will go to capture the Seat of Peter. There is working throughout your world a group We have called 'the octopus,' a web of evil consisting of principalities, powers, all seeking to destroy Christianity and to bring your country and all of the nations of the world under the rule of one-world religionists. It will be a political machine to enslave the world." - Jesus, June 18, 1978

DICTATOR "The state of your world has been reduced by the immorality. The state of your world is capitulating now to all of the forces of the octopus that will seek to bring about a one-world religion and a one world government under a supreme dictator of evil." - Our Lady, March 18, 1978

NEW YORK CITY "Because of the major role the city of New York plays in the world governments and the governing of your nation, the United States, My child, it is for this reason that satan chose that area for his start to bring into your country a full overthrow of Christian belief. It is his endeavor now to replace the Church of My Son with the church of satan." - Our Lady, October 1, 1977

END "When the world and My Son's Church becomes one, know that the end is at hand." - Our Lady, December 6, 1975

COALITION "Your country must send from its shores the coalition the United Nations... I must warn you at this time, as your Mother, that you must remove yourself from this gathering of world churches. My Son has given you His true Church upon your earth. All others have left it, as they could not follow the rule. As protesters, they have cast aside the truth." - Our Lady, September 13, 1975

CONSPIRACY "All of you who now plan in conspiracy in My House to bring about a new world religion, a religion that is not of the God you know, but a religion that is coming up from the depths of hell! Deluded you are, 0h pastors. A delusion has been set upon the world so that those who are evil shall be cut down, and those who are lukewarm shall fall. And those who persevere to the end shall be saved." - Jesus, February 1, 1977

THEOLOGIANS "We have theologians who now consider themselves as gods upon earth. They are setting up a new world religion, a one-world religion based on humanism and modernism. This will not continue much longer, My children. It has taken many earth years to develop these theories. And those who have their heads in the clouds, though they wear the purple hats and the red hats, those who have become blinded from the excessive love of luxury and materialism, shall be lost in the chaos." - Our Lady, September 2 7, 1986

FALSE MESSIAH "He will be covered as a sheep with robes of purity, but look into his heart, My child..." Veronica--Oh, I see a horrible, black-looking, ugly thing that was down there in the, in the pit. It's inside of this man who--outside he looks, he looks holy and human; but he's actually one of those things--he's actually a creature of hell. - Our Lady, April 13, 1974

THIRD WORLDERS "Many priests, bishops, cardinals in My Son's House need prayers from the laity that they may be strong enough not to fall into the plan of the third worlders, who are also known, My child, as the one worlders. They seek to destroy My Son's Church and build one on the creation of man." - Our Lady, October 6, 1976

ROCKEFELLER "There is a man who hides behind the mask ruling your country! He will soon approach and reveal himself. He is the man who compromises your country for the love of power. He has affiliated all of the money powers of the world--joined them for unity of a one-world government. Step down and reveal yourself, the leader--" Veronica--Oh, my goodness! Oh, my goodness! The man behind the mask, Mr. Rockefeller, the man behind the mask! - St. Michael, September 13, 1975

CHARISMATICS "My children have lost their way. Like sheep they wander to and fro looking for My Son. They do not have the Spirit. They cry out in groups called Charismatics, and that too has been promoted with an evil reasoning. My children, understand what is happening now. It is the work of Lucifer using human agents to remove all institutionalized churches from your world and unite all of mankind in the name of peace and brotherhood under one roof-and it will be a one world religion and a one world government." -Our Lady, November 25, 1978

ANTICHRIST "The leaders of your country and the rulers of your world are faster and faster plunging forward, bringing in the reign of the evil one whom you will know as the Antichrist of one world. The plan for his rule has been set for many years."- Our Lady, August 14, 1974

I find it hard to believe that even the Democrats would be dumb enough to use the "religious right" as a campaign issue when the states that are up for grabs this year have a large number of Catholic swing voters or evangelical Christians who ordinarily don't vote unless it's urgent. All Republican candidates in states like Missouri and Minnesota would have to do is say that their opponents belong to a party that compares people who oppose gay marriage to the Taliban.

I heard the Christian right didn't show up at the polls in 2000 as the Republicans had expected.

This attack will revitalize them.

Bring it on, Dimocrats!

This statement is interesting:

where armies build up rather than tear down

The whole purpose of an army is to kill and destroy. Now liberals want to use it to build. I have a feeling that this reveals something perverse about the liberal mindset, but I can't quite figure out what.

I think it's pretty ... makes it seem like she is, too. You find some odd things to complain about, my friend. (speaking of which)

Liberalism wins because of its essentially satanic glamour, which appeals to and propagates all that is weak, broken and ugly in mankind:
If you are lazy, it offers a handout.
If you are stupid, it dumbs down your competition.
If you are worthless, it offers (false) self-esteem.
If you are confused, it says that certainty is the REAL confusion.
If you are evil, it offers a denial of guilt.
If you are a liar, it offers a denial of the existence of truth.
If you are a homosexual, it calls your sickness normal and healthy.
If you are a pornographer, it calls your filthy exploitation freedom of speech.
If you are a slave to sin, it names your shackles, FREEDOM.
If you are a coward, it offers its own false security.




Liberalism must be crushed!
The idea is catching on.

I totally agree. This crap might have passed before, but the democrats are changing their tune on issues like the military to prove it is them that is not out of the mainstream. What happened right after the most horrific attack on America? People flocked to the churches to pray and the Bible quickly became a best seller. This is just about the dumbest political plan I could think of barring something like outright support for Osama Bin Laden. I hope the democrats do this because its such a stinker, but I don't think they are that stupid.

"It seems to me odd that Catholics would complain about a "one world religion." Haven't they been trying to embrace things as far fetched as Islam for years?"

Ah the Catholic bashers on FR. It's getting worse too. Why is it that Catholic bashing is allowed here? I can't open and read a thread without finding a comment against Catholics. I'm getting very sick of this.
