According to the Revealer: “The War on Christians conference is coming to D.C., featuring a modified-A-list of conservative heavyweights organized by Vision America, including Alan Keyes, Gary Bauer, Sen. John Cornyn, Phyllis Schlafly, Sen. Sam Brownback and Rep. Tom DeLay, as well as some Jews...”

With enlightening, pre-enlightenment panels like The Judiciary: Overruling God, and The Gay Agenda: America Won't Be Happy, these Crusaders come to DC to stand up for the rights of the downtrodden 77%.

And Jews joining the idiocracy? Well, take a gander at the list and you'll find a handful of less-than-mainstream Jews lending their names to the cause. Start with Rabbi Aryeh Spero who campaigned for anti-Semite Pat Buchanan and who breaks bread with another Jew-hater, Bill Donohue. The folks here lend about as much ecumenism to this conference as Zell Miller lends to a bipartisan panel.
The War on Christians? You’ve got to be kidding me. Forget believing their own press; these dingbats believe their own framing. Apparently, they’ve spent so much time warbling on about how the pro-choice crowd is “pro-abortion” and the gay rights crowd has a “radical gay agenda” that they’ve begun to believe that there really is a war against them, that we’re fixing to knock down their doors so we can forcibly abort their fetuses and compel them to engage in sexual acts with members of the same sex. Well, here’s a quick reality check: All we want is the right to do what we want to do. You don’t have to do it. Don’t like abortion? Don’t have one. Don’t like gay marriage? Don’t marry a gay person. How the fuck hard is it, folks?

These people are absolute lunatics; they have had a complete break with reality. And any elected official who supports this categorical balderdash about the judiciary “overruling” god is committing treason, plain and simple. They are quite literally betraying a fundamental principle upon which this nation was founded as laid out in the Constitution, which they swore to uphold. I’m tired of pussyfooting around this bullshit. They’re angling for a theocracy, and that’s patently unacceptable. Cornyn, Brownback, DeLay, and any of their godshill compatriots who support this bullshit need to be immediately censured and removed from Congress if they cannot commit to upholding the separation of church and state as they are required to do.

Of course that will never happen in this fine country of ours, because nowadays left is right, and up is down, and good is evil, and black is white, and The War on Christians is really The Dominionists’ War on the Rest of Us.
