All White Male GOP Candidates Support Overturning Roe v. Wade


This "pro-life" bunch (except for Giuliani, sort of) also supports torture and the ongoing slaughter of innocent Iraqis.

Oh, and Tommy Thompson says employers should be able to fire employees if they are gay.

What a compassionate bunch. What the video at Crooks and Liars.

Sen. Sam Brownback, Rep. Tom Tancredo, and Gov. Mike Huckabee said they do not believe in evolution.

Just as you changed the word "Democrat" to "Republican" in the last sentence of your post about the Pew Survey....

...your reporting here contains more misleading and dishonest information.

Nobody said they didn't believe in evolution. The question was asked if anyone did not believe in evolution. The candidates who raised their hands may have only wanted to speak to the issue. The transcript does not contain any statements about the candidate's personal views.

Another thing to consider -- many reasonable Christians and theists are quite willing to acknowledge that new species develop over time via the evolutionary process, while at the same time believing that "the hand of God" initiated and guided the process.

The other points in this post are misleading as well. But, I see little point in refuting the false reporting. If you are willing to change the wording on the Pew Research poll to fit your prejudices, (and not correct it after it was pointed out), it's obvious your ideological position will dictate whatever "facts" you might come up with to fit your prejudices.

Another thing: What difference does it make? Whatever a candidate personally believes regarding the origins of the universe or their religious (or non-religious) affiliations is their business. As many Catholic Democrats have pointed out a gazillion times over the years, personal religious beliefs do not necessarily dictate public policy positions.

Come on, Rose. You can do better than this.

I would suggest that you go back to the Crooks and Liars and listen to his explanation on Bill Maher's show. He also states that he supports federal law prohibiting discrimination of gays.

"What a compassionate bunch."

It appears that compassion for people who are hard of hearing that must depend on hearing aids seems to be in short supply these days as well.

Right.

Got a link to those torture-supporting quotes?
