Remember the little boyish Christian kid that was the darling of the Christian Right in the '80's? He's back and it appears he's made a pretty good living all these years as a lobbyist for Jesus and Jack Abramoff. Years ago someone said, I can't remember who, "that little Christian twerp is evil." At the time I thought that statement was a little ridiculous and certainly hyperbolic. Not anymore. Check-out what he's been up to below:
Grown-up Ralph is a metaphor for the Christian Right in general: venal, deceitful, ugly, megalomaniacal, evil. The Christian Right has become a crusading bunch of Christo/Barbarians hammering at the gates of the American Rome. They've most definitely crossed the rubicon and are headed, armed to the teeth, into your bedroom, your boardroom, your classroom -- they are hell bound and determined to pillage your Jerusalem and make it theirs. There is nothing more repulsive than an angry Christian man that looks like a happy child and wants to socially and culturally rape you and yours clad in a grotesque inappropriate costume of Christ -- whoa!
