Republicans too slow on bringing Armageddon for religious right.

Yes, the fine folks that want to replace the Constitution with their own peculiar interpretation of the Bible are getting a little tired of their anointed political party dragging it's feet on turning this country into a Christian Afghanistan.

"The nation isn't focused today in a way it was on such issues as abortion,
marriage, the nature of the family," said the Rev. Laurence White of Houston.
"For us, it's not the economy, stupid. It's the morality, stupid."
The Rev.
Rick Scarborough, an East Texas evangelist whose group Vision America sponsored
a two-day conference aimed at getting Christian activists involved in the 2006
elections, says he hopes to mobilize groups representing 20 million people. To
motivate them, he offers a list of 10 grievances and a program to register
voters and press candidates to pass specific legislation.
"We're tired of
talk. We want action," he said. "It occurs to us that no matter who is in the
White House or who says what we want to hear, nothing ever changes."
High on
the list are a constitutional ban on same-sex marriage and a judiciary more
sympathetic to religious expression, like permitting the Ten Commandments in
government buildings and allowing pastors to endorse candidates from the pulpit."

I did not mean that Conservatives are generally stupid; I meant, that stupid persons are generally Conservative. I believe that to be so obvious and undeniable a fact that I hardly think any hon. Gentleman will question it.
