Power Line: Those who lie in the name of God... or whatever.

Power Line: Lies and the Lying Liberals Who Tell Them: "A Lutheran theologian offers, as the key support for her attack on a former government official, a single sentence--from which she has removed the second half, thereby reversing its meaning. Is this really what they teach in the seminary? As a Lutheran, I hope not. Then, the National Council of Churches issues a press release attacking a purported body of theological opinion which is said to be associated with 'emboldened political leaders and policymakers'--Republicans all, of course. Yet, when challenged to name a single person who holds these supposedly widespread views, the person who headed up the task force for the NCC is stumped. He can't name a single human being who holds the views he has so vigorously denounced. This is, apparently, the quality of scholarship we should expect from the National Council of Churches. Pathetic."

I guess it's ok to lie if you are trying to protect the environment. Slander is not a big deal if you are slandering a Republican.

I'm sure Bill Moyers and the National Council of Churches don't think of themselves as bigots.

How else do you explain it?
