Interesting full page ad in today's NYT.

Leaders of the religious right -- including Ralph Reed, James Dobson, and Lou Sheldon -- have formed an unholy alliance with the Bush Administration to wage war against our Constitution and to intrude in our personal lives. Now they're caught knee-deep in the Jack Abramoff scandal.

Don't let them get away with it. "The Campaign to Defend the Constitution is an online grassroots movement combating the growing power of the religious right. We will fight for the separation of church and state, individual freedom, scientific progress, pluralism, and tolerance while respecting people of faith and their right to express their beliefs."

Ralph Reed
Former Executive Director,
The Christian Coaltion

Rev. Louis R. Sheldon
Traditional Values Coalition

James Dobson
Focus On The Family

For years, they’ve stood at the pinnacle of power in this country, spouting pieties while delivering to the Bush-Cheney White House and its corporate friends, the votes of millions of their followers. Now James Dobson, Lou Sheldon and Ralph Reed find themselves exposed as base hypocrites, knee-deep in the muck of the Jack Abramoff scandal.

“Gambling - all types of gambling - is driven by
greed and subsists on greed.”
- James Dobson 2006

This is the same James Dobson whose voice you could have heard on radio commercials paid for by Jack Abramoff’s Indian casino clients. These casinos gave millions to Jack Abramoff to limit competition.

Lou Sheldon, or “Lucky Louie” as Abramoff called him, heads the Traditional Values Coalition which received thousands of dollars to oppose a Federal bill that would have limited online betting.

“I need to start humping in corporate accounts.”
- Ralph Reed 1998

Ralph Reed wrote those words to Jack Abramoff. His prayers were answered. In 1999 he received over $1 million from Abramoff’s client, The Choctaw Indians. During 2001 and 2002, he got $4 million from Abramoff and his partners. All to promote the gambling interests of casinos.

Dobson, Reed and Sheldon have formed an unholy alliance with the Bush Administration to wage war against our Constitution, to intrude in our personal lives. They led the fight to involve government in the Terry Schiavo case. They’re
among the leading opponents of stem cell research.

All the time, they must have been betting they wouldn’t get caught taking their thirty pieces of silver and selling out the millions who believed in them. They were wrong.http://www.defconamerica.org/

"Traditional Values" - Lying, greed and corruption. :rolleyes:
