The Declaration of Independence from the 'christian' Right. Sign it.
Declaration of Independence from the 'christian' Right

Simply put: Ties with the 'christian' Right makes a Leader Illegitimate.

Why:

1. There is a direct correlation between ties to the 'christian' Right and corruption. Connecting oneself to the 'christian' Right to look moral is a deception trick that is often used by the Corrupt and makes true Christianity look bad.

Look at Tom DeLay.
Look at Ralph Reed.
Look at George W. Bush.

2. The people who vote for 'christian' Right politicians are also often coerced to vote for these politicians by their Church or Para-Church Leaders.

3. The Sins of the 'christian' Right

The 'christian' Right has been tied to the following:

Opposition to the Civil Rights Movement
Support of Apartheid
Opposition to Stem Cell Research
Opposition to AIDS Research
Opposition to an HPV Vaccine
Opposition to the UN's Convention on the Rights of the Child
Support of Death Squads all over the world
Support of Dictators such as Mobutu Sese Seko, Charles Taylor, etc.
Opposition to GLBT Rights
Opposition to Women's Rights
Other misdeeds

4. The 'christian' Right defined

The Christian Coalition
American Family Association
Family Research Council
Family Research Institute (Has been declared to be a Hate Group by the SPLC)
Focus on the Family
Chalcedon Foundation (Has been declared to be a Hate Group by the SPLC)
Traditional Values Coalition
Operation Rescue
American Vision (Has been declared to be a Hate Group by the SPLC)
Various Groups and Individuals affiliated with the Council for National Policy
Other groups

5. Conclusion

1. The 'christian' Right has been a force that has malevolently opposed Scientific Progress and has even obstructed the research required for life saving treatments.

2. The 'christian' Right has been a force that has malevolently opposed Civil Rights and Equal Rights for ALL people.

3. The 'christian' Right is a force that has proven itself dedicated to the obstruction of Democracy.

4. The 'christian' Right is a force that publishes and broadcasts false propaganda. This propaganda has contributed to physical attacks on GLBT people.

5. The 'christian' Right is a force that opposes Democracy and Progress. Therefore we can not view people who are endorsed and supported by the Christian Right to be Legitimate figures of Authority.

(To 'sign' it, just say "Signed" or something. I think it is better that people not leave their real names when it comes to this. I'm also going to be passing this onto other Progressive groups, such as Daily Kos, so look for it in other places.)
