    we should follow the good advice of the Rude Pundit.

    Here's what we do: we start invading the Christian conservative websites (and right-wingers who hate gays). Try to stay as "mainstream" as possible. Hit the chat rooms and message boards. E-mail like crazy. And pretend to be Christian, conservative, and mad as hell that the President would allow someone like Gannyguck into the sanctified pure whiteness of America's house. Go on Fox's website and do the same. Never, never make it that you hate Bush - make it that you're betrayed. Fuck, if a few cranks from Focus on the Family can get the FCC to criminally raise fines on indecency, then we can use those cranks to our advantage. (The Rude Pundit is not going to list sites to contact because, in case anyone does this, he doesn't want such complaints to be seen as "illegitimate" because of the Rude Pundit's involvement.)

      That's how I play it in my angry emails to Fox News about Brit Hume's Social Security bullshit: "I watch you guys every day! I trust you for my news! You are how I know what's going on in the world! And this idiot is lying to me! Even I could understand what FDR meant in that letter to Congress!"

      Argue against smearing someone just because they are a gay military prostitute. Maybe talk about Mary Magdalene, maybe speculate that JG had found JC and was mending his ways. Say that explains why he had those special prayer sessions 1-on-1 with our saviour and Commander-in-Christ. Remind them of the christian value of forgiveness.

      watch the heads explode!

        there seems to be a good bit of controversy in freeperland.

          To: kristinn Gannon never became a "reporter." Anyone with an ounce of objectivity can see that. It will not do any conservative any good to take this guy's part - and most folks here have the stones to admit that. While y'all are whining about the "attacks" on Gannon, why not stop and think about how geared up you would be if a male prostitute was regularly admitted into the CLINTON WH press room after being denied Capitol Hill credentials and did nothing but lob t-ball questions whenever the going got a little rough for Lockhart. Think about it, and be honest with yourself about what you would be saying and doing. Then come back and explain why you think you should protest in this guy's corner. 47 posted on 02/18/2005 9:09:46 AM PST by lugsoul (Until at last I threw down my enemy and smote his ruin on the mountainside.)

            that poster must be a lefty troll! Sweet!!

             lugsoul - sounds like a Mordor orc name (lug=tower in the Black Speech, if I recall correctly), but he is quoting Gandalf in his sig...  
            definitely not standard freeper material. Thanks for fishing that tidbit out of the swamp for us. I did not dare follow that link myself.
            Please accept some mojo.

    •  There's lots of ammo (none)
      in the Bible. Yep, go to Psalms, for example, and you will find lots of verses to present to the fundies about:

      lying
      deceit
      divine judgment
      God's wrath on sullied leaders

      etc.

      These so-called "Christians" must not only have the facts thrown at them, but scriptural verses which vividly illustrate this morality play. Hurling scripture at them will force them to compare what they advocate with "God's word." And God's word on this isn't pretty.

      •  and we won't even mention (none)
        the pride goeth before a fall line, or the golden rule.

        Of course, their golden rule is
        Them that has the gold, makes the rules.
