Toupees, Homosexuality, Mormonism, and Millionaires: All traits of congressmen speaking in the debate right now during the healthcare debate.
James Hartline Report: Toupees, Homosexuality, Mormonism, and Millionaires: All traits of congressmen speaking in the debate right now during the congressional Obama Healthcare debate. And I haven't even got to the Democrats yet. Congressional Republicans have closet homosexual Congressman David Dreier of California leading the GOP side in the congressional debate.
Pro-life Christian activists are also grinding their teeth in dismay that they have been "betrayed" by Congressmen Bart Stupak, a lifetime member and promoter of the pro-abortion Democratic Party. Stupak recently voted to expand specials rights for homosexuality when he voted YES on the Democrats federal hate crimes legislation.
While in Washington, D.C., Stupak rented a room at the C Street facility of The Fellowship, also known as the Family, a Christian organization which operates the property as a tax-exempt church and subsidized residence for several congressmen and senators. Recently Stupak moved out after a group entitled Clergy Voice brought a lawsuit challenging the tax favored status of the facility as a church, including on the grounds that many ordinary church activities did not occur there and due to the secretiveness of the organization.
Jeff Sharlet, an author who wrote a book about the organization affiliated with the C Street facility, said, "When I lived with The Family at Ivanwald, a house for younger men being groomed for leadership, I was told that Stupak was a regular visitor to the Cedars." The Cedars, according to the Washington Independent, is also owned by The Family and hosts weekly prayer events. Stupak has denied any affiliation with the Family and appeared to deny knowledge of the organization, stating "I don’t belong to any such group" and that "I don’t know what you’re talking about, [The] Family and all this other stuff."
Tied to social political causes operating as fronts to empower the GOP takeover of Evangelical Christians, Stupak has recently been promoted by certain pro-life groups to take a stand against Obama's healthcare debacle, but Stupak's allegiance to the pro-abortion Democratic Party won out in the end.
