Now I have read almost enough about the Religious Right to convince me that if Jesus or God came down to Earth, the evangelicals would have a whole lot of 'splaining to do.

Remember Jeff Gannon? Master of the softball questions for George W. Bush and and gay sex escort on Mr. Gannon, aka James Dale Guckert, is now a spokesman for the International Bible Reading Association. He recently managed a not very successful Bible Reading Marathon for the evangelical National Day of Prayer that was on Thursday. (Amusingly, this NDP site has a Flash image of George Washington praying by his horse. What the evangelicals don't know is that George Washington did not like to attend church). God obviously is not a crowd magnet, at least not for wayward conservatives like Jeff Gannon who had only thirty-seven people,mostly tired tourists, out of six hundred seats.

NOTE: I am not linking to any images of Mr. Gannon. I have seen the nude photos and I prefer to keep my lunch.


The Westboro Baptist Church, infamous for Fred Phelps' "God Hates Fags" website (No, I'm not linking to the site, their production values are not to my standards), is protesting at the funerals of murdered Virginia Tech students with the theme of "God Hates Virginia Tech and America". The church's basic premise is that God has punished Virginia Tech with murder because America tolerates gay people. Hookay...The Westboro church has also protested at the funeral of the saintly Mister Rogers of television fame. I wonder how the Phelps feel about former gay male escort Jeff Gannon being a spokesman for a Bible association?
