Chickens come home to roost under White House "Holiday Tree"

This is just so fucking hilarious.

Bush is getting flack from the religious right because the WH Christmas card doesn't mention Christmas or Jesus.

"This clearly demonstrates that the Bush administration has suffered a loss of will and that they have capitulated to the worst elements in our culture," said William A. Donohue, president of the Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights.

Bush "claims to be a born-again, evangelical Christian. But he sure doesn't act like one," said Joseph Farah, editor of the conservative Web site "I threw out my White House card as soon as I got it."

Doesn't act like one? Whoa, where the hell has HE been?

Damn. If Bush doesn't act like a born-again, evangelical Christian, then can you imagine what those motherfuckers are REALLY like?
"Certainly President and Mrs. Bush, because of their faith, celebrate Christmas," said Susan Whitson, Laura Bush's press secretary. "Their cards in recent years have included best wishes for a holiday season, rather than Christmas wishes, because they are sent to people of all faiths."

Sounds reasonable, right? Uh-oh, here comes Donohue again:
"Ninety-six percent of Americans celebrate Christmas," Donohue said. "Spare me the diversity lecture."

Oh, and just in case you thought Donohue might still be clinging to some shred of humanity or reason:
"It bothers me that the White House card leaves off any reference to Jesus, while we've got Ramadan celebrations in the White House," Wildmon said. "What's going on there?"

Yeah, what the fuck IS going on there??? Is Bush plotting to convert the whole country into a "holiday season" -havin', Ramadan-feast-eatin', Menorah-lightin' bunch of heathens???

I bet he is!! I bet that's been his plan all along!!

First he lulls us into a false sense of complacency, by appointing a slew of born-again brain-dead freaks to government posts, by giving federal funding to religious groups that provide social services only to Christians, and by telling the world that Jesus' dad talks to him about his middle east policy...

Then, he turns the tables on us and declares himself...a Unitarian!!!

You know, Vik, I ALMOST pitty poor Dubbya...damned if he does and damned if he doesn't, it seems.

So, here's an idea: since you can't please everyone, Georgey, and it's clearly troubling you, why not just RESIGN and let someone who actually HAS a clue run the joint?

I'm just sayin.

...of course the Bible bangers are upset. Mostly because they (and Republicans in general) have no principles. Whenever they don't get their own way, they cry like a buncha babies and whine "That's not fair!".
Yet, to further their own agenda, they'll do anything, fair or not. Leave it to Christians in America to act like a persecuted minority.
