“A Holy Ghost invasion is taking place. Man your battle stations, ready your weapons, lock and load.”
That was Ohio Pastor Rod Parsley, rallying the troops in support of Ohio Guber candidate Ken Blackwell.
Alas, the Holy Ghost must have used Rumsfeldian tactics, because Blackwell lost, badly. Oh well, Parsely can console himself with his place in the Interfaith Alliance’s list of “The Top Ten Abuses of Religion in Politics” during the 2006 campaign season. The whole list is disgusting, but at least the three biggest offenders all lost.
Alabama’s dueling questionnaires are number seven.
