Evangelicals frustrated by Bush - The Washington Times: Nation/Politics

Evangelicals are threatening to stay home on Election Day this year, due to their disappointment in Bush’s failure to promote their ultra-right wing agenda. And apparently it’s not just abortion and gay marriage:

“Mr. Knight points to Mr. Bush’s having “promoted the Ted Kennedy Leave No Child Behind education bill, which expanded an Education Department that social conservatives see as a fully owned subsidiary of the National Education Association, which has grown more stridently left wing in recent years. The NEA has boldly promoted the homosexual agenda for schoolchildren.”

“Also, Mr. Knight said, Mr. Bush “upped the budget for the National Endowment for the Arts, which has boldly promoted the homosexual agenda for schoolchildren. The White House message to social conservatives was: ‘We don’t share your values, folks. We would rather impress the art elite at cocktail parties.’ “”

Frankly, I think it’s good they’re planning on staying home. Anyone who believes that laws should be made so that God is not displeased with the U.S. when the Rapture comes should have as little influence on our political process as possible.

I mean, c’mon people! They’re attacking art and education!
