Dear Religious Left

I know you are busy feeding the poor, providing shelter for the homeless, and basically tending to the least of us with the same mercy and compassion that Jesus did, but I was wondering if you could take time out of your extremely busy schedule to do more of this:

Otherwise people are going to think that statements like this one from Religious Right leader Richard Land, head of the Southern Baptist Convention's Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission, reflect the sentiments of all Religious leaders:

"What they are attempting to do in healthcare, particularly in treating the elderly, is not something like what the Nazis did. It is precisely what the Nazis did."

This accusation is shocking enough, but Land doesn't stop there. He goes on to single out President Obama, Speaker Pelosi, the Democratic Party, and "the government," accusing them of supporting euthanasia-like policies and practicing a "biological bigotry that is feeding a euthanasia mentality."

This despicable statement shines a small light on just how cruel and dishonest the Religious Right has become (and when it comes to God's lgbt children - they've gone completely off the edge with hate). It's mind boggling that they pass this drivel off as the work of God. But far more frightening is that they are filling mega-churches full with people who believe it. Share
