Bush Courts Catholics with Promises on Social Issues
DALLAS (Reuters) - President Bush promised on Tuesday to fight in a second term for conservative social causes from banning gay marriage to limiting abortion rights, in an appeal for Roman Catholic voters to support him over John Kerry, a Catholic.
In a meeting billed as a nonpartisan gathering of the world's largest lay Catholic organization, the Knights of Columbus greeted Bush, a Methodist, with standing ovations and shouts of "Four more years."
Supreme Knight Carl Anderson praised Bush for opposing abortion rights and gay marriage. "Thank you for restoring moral integrity to the office of the president," he said.
"Thank you for restoring moral integrity to the office of president"?? Are you effing kidding me?
These idiots are more concerned about their hatred of gays than they are about the fact that the President of the United States lied to the American people to start a war. That's not important. Never mind that he's alienated our allies. Who cares if Tony Blair is in trouble; our Spanish allies were removed from office because of him. Never mind the moral integrity it required to accept all those campaign contributions from his friends at Enron while they robbed the State of California and people's pensions. All that's unimportant, just so long as he stamps out the real threathomosexuality. That's moral integrity?! They're so blinded by their hatred of us that they don't care about anything else! It's uneffing believable!
So, in addition to the wars he wants to wage in the Middle East, he's made it patently clear that he plans to continue his religious jihad against gays (and women). This man is a menace and must not be reelected. Maybe I'm missing something, but... I think you would either have to be a bigot or have your head wedged firmly up your ass to vote for Bush in November.
