Religious Bigotry? Bringiton!

What else do you call this except religious bigotry?:

The Republicans are liars, remember? All the Pro-8 ads that have been running are filled with lies, thanks to the Mormon cash, and like Dominionists the Mormons by faith believe that it is perfectly acceptable to lie to achieve “God’s” ends.

I’m related to some Mormons.  Some Republicans too.  They are all good people, and unlike the person quoted above, there is no bigotry in their minds or hatred in their hearts.  Sadly, this isn’t the first time Corrente has permitted some truly deranged posts and comments.  And as I said before, the partisanship trap is intellectually lazy and bad for our nation. 

I would have left a response over at Corrente but Lambert kicked me out for making his blog look bad.  So much for the high ethical standards of PB 2.0 

Progressives used to have principles.  Liberals still do.

    I started reading the comment thread over there:

    Truly, if all he can get done is a start on curbing CO2 emissions and properly pronounce “nuclear” he will have done all I can reasonably hope for.

    It’s interesting that ridiculing regional and ethnic accents is now acceptable in the so-called progressive world.

    If Corrente allowed this tripe to get through the filter than how bad were yours that got you kicked out. Oh wait, this is Wednesday, the day the allow the inmates to blog without attendants. Stupid comments seeing the light of day makes me long for the days of smoke signals.

    It is indeed very interesting. I’ve noticed that, too. How… reality based.

    Myiq, clearly they didn’t need you to embarrass them after all. They’re conveniently self-embarrassing. Kind of like those little packets of crackers that come with their own cheese.
