Anti-Christian Democrats

Via the Dad29 blog, a post on Shark and Shepherd, about how the various members of Congress have been rated by the Secular Coalition for America.

The group defines itself as “an advocacy group for atheists, humanists, freethinkers, and other nontheists.”

So this is not conservative Christians complaining about people they think to be insufficiently orthodox. These are people who aren’t religious saying who their friends are.

Here are the House ratings, and here are the Senate ratings.

Russ Feingold scored 100.

Even Tammy Baldwin, lesbian House member from Dane County only scored 90.

The Senate numbers are less useful than the House numbers, however, since the Senate scores consist mostly of judicial confirmation issues.

The single most interesting thing about the scores is the cleavage between the Democrats and the Republicans. Virtually every score above 50 is registered by a Democrat, and virtually every score below 50 by a Republican.

For example, there is Barack Obama (D-IL), who wears his religious beliefs in his sleeve, but scores a 90. Then there is Evan Bayh (D-IN) who is supposedly a “moderate” candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination. He scores 100.

Which reveals the silliness of Democratic efforts to hire consultants to help them “reach out to people of faith.”

Contrary to what Democrats think, people of faith aren’t stupid. They know who favors gay marriage. They know who wants to take “under God” out of the Pledge of Allegiance. They know who wants to ban Christian student organizations on the campuses of public universities. All the consultants in the world can’t conceal those things.
