I've been surfing the Religious Right websites and have come back to report that there is a great silence about Randall Tobias' fall from grace. Not a peep on the Concerned Woman for America site about the scandal, although they do have outdated info about Mr. Tobias when he was an AIDS czar. This from an organization that touts abstinence before marriage and fidelity in marriage. Nada for Focus on the Family.

The 700 Club has a story but not the American Family Association.

Nothing on the Christianity Today site.

It seems that when the religious right has one of their own fall from favour, there is a conspiracy of silence regarding an issue (sex) that can lead to things that they politically and morally abhor: fornication, adultery, and abortion. The Religious Right needs to clean their own house before telling everyone else what to do.

David W. Logsdon lived with the body of his first murder victim, Patricia Reed, before going on a killing spree at the Ward Parkway shopping center in Kansas City.Logsdon beat Ms. Reed to death, then stole her late husband's rifle and her car. He used the victim's credit cards for purchases.

With respect and sorrow for the dead woman, sometimes having a gun in the house is not a defence. Guns can be, and are often, stolen and used for criminal purposes.
