Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Sunday, November 12, 2017

I've been wondering where Frank Schaeffer has been these days. Once an acolyte of his father Francis Schaeffer's Reagan-era Religious Right, Schaeffer walked away from it in favor of intellectual honesty and some righteous anger at where Republicans have gone. ... He came to AM Joy this morning loaded for bear. "Think about the Republican Party now," he told her audience. "Throw some words out that are associated with them -- mass shootings, Milo, Trump, Moore, Bannon, rape, child molesting, neo-Nazis, white supremacy." That's quite a list, isn't it? "What is wrong with the Republican Party?," he asked. "I'm not shocked by Donald Trump. I'm not shocked by Roy Moore. He's a loud mouth, gun-toting fool. What I'm shocked by is the complicity."

They know who they are and what they represent.

They're proud of it.

And they control the electoral college.

The last time nationalism and ignorance spread across the globe to this degree we ended up in a horrific world war that left millions of people dead and the beginnings of nuclear warfare.

"Polish Nationalist Youth March Draws Thousands in Capital. "

Poland should be warned that they are risking their membership in NATO. How could we ask our Black, Hispanic, Jewish, Muslim, Gay soldiers to go and defend Nazis?

Just as Mr. Schaeffer rejected the religion of his father there will be thousands of young Alabama residents who will listen to their parents defending this child molester and realize the bankruptcy of their parent's faith. I know I was raised Catholic but those sex scandals involving mostly young boys caused me and millions of other Catholics to reject the religion of my parents. This scandal is going to do the same thing for Evangelicals who have always been the most judgemental, bigoted and disgusting of all of the Christian faiths.
