Gee, John Danforth is one angry Democrat. Oh, that’s right. He’s a former GOP Senator and not a Democrat at all. But, oh my, he criticizes the Republican party as being the party of conservative Christians. But, isn’t that what Howard Dean said? I’m so confused. Why isn’t the MSM all angry at John Danforth too?
From Danforth’s excellent NYT op ed earlier this year:
” By a series of recent initiatives, Republicans have transformed our party into the political arm of conservative Christians…. The problem is not with people or churches that are politically active. It is with a party that has gone so far in adopting a sectarian agenda that it has become the political extension of a religious movement…. But in recent times, we Republicans have allowed this shared agenda to become secondary to the agenda of Christian conservatives.”
