Scary Stuff Out of Ohio....More Fundies
registering voters.

http://www.reformationohio.com /

Wonder who they will be endorsing? One guess.

I'm all for feeding the hungry, but not if one has to promise to vote a certain way to get the food. Tying "ministry" to the impoverished with voter registration. Saw this on TV while flipping channels last night. Almost had to go pray to the porcelain god.

4. Yeah, but shooting for 100,000 might get you

25,000--but, the scariest part is the 400,000 voters they are targeting.

2. The "Center for Moral Clarity?"
ROTFLMAO ! ! !

Doesn't Paisley really mean. . .the "Center for Dictating My Will as God?"

Ohio should be continually embarassed at what it has become. . .and if the people living in that state don't wake up and realize that these are the same people who voted for moral, ethical and financial corruption over and over again in their state, then they should cope with the way they are now considered the Mississippi of the North.

5. This is reason number five thousand
why I was so glad to leave Ohio this summer for Rapid City, SD. Sure, I miss my son and my family and friends, but that's about ALL I miss from Ohio. And I was born and spent most of my life there, too. The idiot backwoods yahoo repubs have had a stranglehold on the state for over ten years now, and have run it straight into the ground. And their fundie branch is finishing off the ruins of a once-great state. Even when this grant-funded job ends next year, I seriously doubt if I will EVER go back. At least here in SD I have one Dem senator and the congresswoman is a Dem.

15. The good Rev. Parsley is one of those christians who
give cover to the people who will do anything for money during the 167 hours a week they are not at church...

He asks people to donate and pray and they will then be rewarded with material goods...

He has a hour every Sunday morning and also religotainment throughout the week during the wee hours of the night when we are at our weakest and susceptible to salvation...
