U.S. Attorney General Deputizes Religious Right To Protect Religious Freedom http://www.alternet.org/blogs/peek/#48364 "Imagine if the religious right's beloved "war on Christmas" was a year-round affair. Legions of lawyers ready to pounce on school and civic administrators, the persistent neon buzz of ACLU-paranoia in the air, Pat Robertson and the Bill O'Reilly Persecution Complex (nice band name...) pressuring corporate America to replace every "gesundheit" with a "God bless you." Now, imagine if the leaders of the effort weren't just the Jerry Falwell Admiration Society, but instead the full weight and force of the Department of Justice, training lawyers and enlisting supporters across the country ready to blow the whistle on any perceived slight to religion. Got the picture?" wrote Don Byrd, of the Baptist Joint Committee On Religious Liberty.And"Expecting the Bush administration to defend religious liberty is a little like asking Col. Sanders to babysit your pet chicken," said the Rev. Barry W. Lynn, executive director of Americans United.Peter Nuhn http://www.atheists....tizes_religious
