I don’t know how many of you saw this interview on 60 Minutes last night, but David Kuo is saying many of the things that I’ve been saying for some time here.
Religious conservatives have been used by this administration and the Republican party in general ever since Ronald Reagan. When I was just a ‘wee tyke’, my family was always excited to see what we called “men (or women) of God” elected to office – figuring that people of faith just had more integrity in general and could lead our country in the right direction.
We now know that claiming a religious affiliation on your resume does nothing to reduce the likelihood of your being embroiled in political or sexual scandal; and we’ve also learned that the conservative agenda will always be subjugated to the interests of multi-national corporations and wealthy political donors.
David Kuo has come out of the administration and written a book that, by all accounts, should be a siren song to religious conservatives to finally wake up and realize how they have been and still are being used to forward a political agenda that is anything but aligned to their goal of making the world, well, more godly.
