    [they] mine the Bible for ancient wisdom on modern policy debates about tax rates, foreign aid, education, cloning and the Central American Free Trade Agreement.

    Literal reading of the Bible, my [posterior].  Capital gain taxes of 30% are non-Biblical, but at 15% they are Biblical.  And how Biblical is the provision preventing Central American countries from producing and importing generic versions of drugs after the expiration of the relevant patents in USA?

    This is AEI theology.  I may have some regard for religious motivations in politics and policy, but this is either delusion or hucksterism (meaning: some of these guys are hucksters, and other are delusional).

    These people claim that they serve Christ "first and always" when they work on highway appropriation bill.  Is it possible to explain it to their "flocks" that this phony?

    Recall that Abramoff and his Congressional beneficiaries are almost to the man "deeply religious".  [Memo: pork is kosher if it comes in barrels.]
