Bush's righteous army -- onward Christian soldiers!
You have to read the whole article... some pretty scary stuff if you ask me! I don't suppose lying to start a war, killing thousands of innocent civilians or torturing people count as "sins", but my oh my those degenerate gay folks have just got to go! The hypocrisy never ceases to amaze me, and Bush is playing the gay-hating card for every vote he can squeeze from the religious extremists.

Pastor's election-year crusade: 60,000 new voters in state

By Janet I. Tu
Seattle Times staff reporter

If the idea of devout Christians running the country makes some Americans nervous, Joseph Fuiten has no such qualms.

The senior pastor of one of the largest churches in the state, who is leading a statewide effort to rally social conservatives to re-elect President Bush, Fuiten believes "God wants us to be involved in government.

"Along with the church and family, it's an institution God created which ought to be under the will of God," said Fuiten as he stood before a giant American flag at his Cedar Park Assembly of God church in Bothell, delivering his annual Fourth of July sermon on God and country.


Those beliefs and his view of the Bible as the infallible word of God are why Fuiten is heading the Bush campaign's effort in this state to reach social conservatives, who he says are being galvanized by the gay-marriage issue.

In addition, through a statewide evangelical Christian lobbying group he leads, Fuiten is heading a voter-registration drive focused largely on evangelical churches. At his own church on the Fourth of July, Fuiten had ushers pass out forms to people in the pews who said they had not registered to vote.

Already, more than 800 churches statewide have received registration materials. Fuiten's goal is to register 60,000 people. As an organizer of this spring's Mayday for Marriage rally that drew 20,000 people to Safeco Field, he has a record for marshaling the masses.

Much, much more...

1. Just remember-the GOP opposed the motor-voter law for a reason
It's okay for a huge church to recruit voters, but they have a problem with voters registering at DMV offices that are located in most cities and easy for the poor to access.
