Yet, when Tom DeLay, the former majority leader of the House of Representatives who is currently under indictment for violations of campaign-finance laws, arrived on the second day of the conference to a standing ovation, Scarborough asserted that DeLay’s criminal indictment was simply the result of his being “the target of all who despise the cause of Christ” — in short, DeLay is clearly another persecuted Christian.
Yeesh! THIS is one of the many goals of a “War on Christians” ideology. They can play the ‘persecution’ card whenever they wish to deflect scrutiny of their illegal activities! It makes it a lot easier when Dubya illegally wiretaps, or leaks information – he’s only being attacked by the Secular Forces! (As if we’re a well-oiled Army of some sort!)
Corrupt conservatives in power aren’t really criminals – they’re only under attack because of their Christian Values.
