    SREC Member: "I got into politics to put Christian conservatives into office" - The Texas Observer

    Hear that folks, if you're pro-choice or pro-gay rights then you cannot possibly be a Conservative. Read the entire article though, plenty of facepalm moments. Though this was one of my favorites:

    He used the "some of my best friends are" line. :rofl:

    Seems like he is being very open with what he wants to do. Your point?

    He's free to promote his own agenda. That's his right. That's what America is all about. You don't have to vote for any candidates he supports or promotes. That's your right. Isn't America great? :)

    Why am I not surprised that neither of you see the problem with the blatant bigotry against the Jewish candidate in this place. Or rather, neither of you care. If this was happening to a Christian, I'm sure both of your tunes would be rather different.

    It's interesting that this made it out in the open, but I'd be lying if I said I was surprised the Texas SREC leadership felt this way. Somehow, though, this will be turned as an unfair attack against those victimized christians.

    I'm assuming you would be equally as horrified if he were Jewish and working hard to get a Jewish candidate into office? Or would that be ok?

    Just because he's a Christian does not make him a bigot. Idiot.

    Wrong, I'm not saying he's a bigot because he's a Christian. Did you even bother to read the article?

    Yea.... I don't get what the issue is. Would you be having a whine if he was black and working to get a black liberal into office? Or Muslim? Or gay?

    What is the issue?

    Again, you clearly didn't read the article. He wasn't just supporting Christian candidates, he was campaigning against a Jewish candidate because of the simple fact he was Jewish. This would be like if a African American candidate was campaigning against a candidate because he was white or vice versa.
