Making Religion Their Bitch

The W-S Journal has the story ... that N.C. Republican Party political director Chris Mears has been caught trying to obtain church directories across the state. Because God told him to, we imagine.

And God, no doubt, told the spokesperson for the N.C. GOP to say the following in self-defense: "We're just appealing to one of our constituencies, just as the Democrat Party does .... The Democrats may feel it's more profitable to go and do voter registration drives at a homosexual convention. We feel more comfortable going to churches."

Democratic State Party Chair Jerry Meek fired back: "We believe that people go to church to worship and not to sign up to receive Republican propaganda. I would say the vast majority of Democrats are Democrats because of their faith, not in spite of it. But that is a place that is so sacred that we should not inject politics into the church."
