Connecting the dots between the Peterson family and the Republicans - Tucson Liberal Christian | Examiner.com I wrote in general terms about the manipulation of evangelical Christians by the Republican Party this past week, only to slam into the terrible story of the murder-suicide of the family of Albert Peterson. When you speak of low-information voters and their fear of our government and President, it can sound kind of far away, but the pathetic scenario that hit the news yesterday focuses my articles like a laser. I predicted this would be happening. Now I am hoping that the Peterson family will not have died in vain. By that I mean that their tragic, appalling deaths will serve as a (not in the words of Samuel L. Jackson) WAKE THE HECK UP call for evangelical Christians. Something, somewhere has to be The Moment, and I pray that no more families will be found dead because of Republican talking points, Rush Lumber and Faux News.
