Hmmm... what do you think of these statements?
"The abortionists have got to bear some burden for this [the 9/11 attacks] because God will not be mocked. And when we destroy 40 million little innocent babies, we make God mad. I really believe that the pagans, and the abortionists, and the feminists, and the gays and the lesbians who are actively trying to make that an alternative lifestyle, the ACLU, People for the American Way -- all of them who have tried to secularize America -- I point the finger in their face and say 'you helped this happen."
"The idea that religion and politics don't mix was invented by the Devil to keep Christians from running their own country."
"The ACLU is to Christians what the American Nazi party is to Jews."
"I hope I live to see the day when, as in the early days of our country, we won't have any public schools. The churches will have taken them over again and Christians will be running them. What a happy day that will be!"
"AIDS is the wrath of a just God against homosexuals. To oppose it would be like an Israelite jumping in the Red Sea to save one of Pharaoh's charioteers ... AIDS is not just God's punishment for homosexuals; it is God's punishment for the society that tolerates homosexuals."
How about these remarks?
"Just like what Nazi Germany did to the Jews, so liberal America is now doing to the evangelical Christians. It's no different. It is the same thing. It is happening all over again. It is the Democratic Congress, the liberal-based media and the homosexuals who want to destroy the Christians.
"The feminist agenda is not about equal rights for women. It is about a socialist, anti-family political movement that encourages women to leave their husbands, kill their children, practice witchcraft, destroy capitalism and become lesbians."
"I know this is painful for the ladies to hear, but if you get married, you have accepted the headship of a man, your husband. Christ is the head of the household and the husband is the head of the wife, and that's the way it is, period."
US President George W Bush paid tribute, sought advice from and welcomed to the White House the men who spoke the above words, Pat Robertson and Jerry Falwell, who Mr. Bush once said lived a life of "faith, family, and freedom" and "taught young people to remain true to their convictions and rely upon God's word throughout each stage of their lives." George W. Bush was elected president twice, having never disowned these lunatics in the way that the media is demanding of Barack Obama regarding Jeremiah Wright.
Why is that?
