  •  And it's the total GOP embrace (14+ / 0-)
    of these ideas that has our country in ruins. They have spent six years pandering to these particular "values" while duping saps out in middle American into believing they are so holy-holy in their embrace of "morals". One of my most interesting conversations ever was at Gay Pride two years ago when I stopped to engage on of the Leviticus sign-holders in conversation and within five inutes the woman revealed she was more troubled by rampant consumerism and greed than by gay marriage. This is one area where I totally agreed with Rabbi Michael Lerner's Book "The Left Hand of God." People ARE disturbed about this, and the GOP, while exacerbating the situation incredibly, have manipulated peoples' concern and rechanneled it into other areas (gay marriage, abortion, Terri Schiavo) that have nothing to do with the underlying causes of peoples' concern.
