The Republican Party is finally feeling the wrath of the monster they unleashed over ten years ago: The head of the powerful American Society of Saints not Electing Sinners (A.S.S.E.S) also known as the Family Research Council, has declared righteous war on members of the Republican party, threatening to strip away the cloaks of righteousness of the ones who voted for the repeal of DADT. There will be a lot of hand-wringing and mea-culpas in the GOP for weeks to come as well as a lot of "distancing" from those senators and representatives who so brazenly defied Perkins and the Creator in all matters spiritual and secular.

The list of evil-doers includes:

The Republicans voting "yes" were: Sens. Scott Brown (R-Mass), Susan Collins (R-Maine), Mark Kirk (R-Ill.), Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska), Olympia Snowe (R-Maine) and George Voinovich (R-Ohio). Collins had co-sponsored the repeal bill.

 So here is the reaction of Grand High Exalted Mystic Ruler Tony Perkins:

"Today is a tragic day for our armed forces. ... now been hijacked and turned into a tool for imposing on the country a radical social agenda. This may advance the cause of reshaping social attitudes regarding human sexuality, but it will only do harm to the military's ability to fulfill its mission...It is clear why this was done: not to enhance the military's ability to accomplish its mission or to enhance national security. Rather, it is a political payoff to a tiny, but loud and wealthy, part of the Democratic base.

I like the loud and wealthy part. Loud, maybe, but wealthy? Who does he think the gay community is, the Mormon Church?

Vicious is as vicious does.

While sage researchers say that the voting power of the Christian Right has dwindled in the last ten years, the fact is that its power and intensity has grown in other ways. Think in terms of California's Proposition 8: the amount of money and the viciousness of the ads, the disingenuous non-apologies of Rick Warren, the busing of thousands of Prop 8 volunteers from outside California. The intensity of it all. Like the video game from the Left Behind Series, the machinations of the Christian Right left nothing to the imagination: destroy, destroy, destroy the Evil gays and their horrible "agenda."*

This is now a great time to monitor the machinations of America's top Christian Right Organizations and just how much they will turn on members of the Republican Party: in the Family Research Council, Focus On the Family, American Family Association, the Catholic League, and the Southern Baptist Convention, we may see the destruction of political careers with a stridency that has never been seen before. Let's look at the key victims:

Olympia Snowe (R-Maine)

Olympia Snowe is no stranger to tragedy: orphaned at an early age, she endured the deaths of her husband (auto accident) and stepson (age 20, congential heart failure). She over came those obstacles to become both the wife of the Governor of Maine while acting as a Representative for Maine in Congress. Her tenure in the Senate has caused her to be labled a moderate. She is, however, a very vocal and active moderate having brokered alliances with both parties and been a leading tie-breaker in crucial legislation.

Olympia Snowe is a strong woman. The Christian Right distrusts strong women.

Susan Collins (R-Maine)

Susan Collins is considered to be one of the most liberal "moderates of the Republican Party and has worked closely with Olympia Snowe on many peace-making missions between the Republican and the Democrats. She has been endorsed by the Human Rights Campaign, so naturally the Christian Right hates her guts.
