In our local paper, a new ad appeared sponsored by GINGPAC, which stands for "Government is Not G-d." According to their website, they are dedicated to amending the First Amendment so that Christianity is protected. They favor the Senate candidacy of Todd Akin (because he opposes abortion in all cases, including incest and "forceable" rape...like there is any other kind?) and because they claim Obama " is a Muslim." Their ad reads "Barack Hussein Obama Will Move America to....Force Police Agencies to allow Muslim Brotherhood to select staff" (really?). "Force courts to accept Islamic Sharia law in domestic disputes" (but Ecclesiastical Courts are okay)...Really? "Force employers to give illegal immigrants the jobs of U.S. citizens" (huh?). "Force doctors to assist homosexuals in buying surrogate babies"(What the hell does that mean anyway?). The ad goes on to read..."Barack Hussein Obama is the only President in history who has deliberately removed the words "endowed by their Creator" when referring to our Declaration of Independence, not once but several times"(actually this is a lie)...and that "he as President can take rights away for the "social good." Wow. Really? Of course not, but as I have been writing, lying to destroy another seems to be the new value system of the politically engaged religious right. And where is Mitt Romney to snuff these lies out? To proclaim lying and distortions like these have no place in American society? "All I need is 51% to win" is all Romney can say.
The ends rarely if ever, justify the means. Lying and cheating are not American values.
