    Thumbs up Evangelicals to GOP: Take your agenda and shove it

    MINNEAPOLIS, Minnesota (CNN) -- A sharp difference of opinion over which issues ought to top the political agenda of Christian conservatives spilled out into the open at this week's meeting of the National Association of Evangelicals.

    The group rebuffed complaints from some of the religious right's leading lights about the organization's newfound focus on global warming.

    The group, which represents 45,000 churches and more than 60 evangelical denominations, took no action on a letter sent by 25 conservative Christian leaders demanding that the organization restrain its Washington policy director, the Rev. Richard Cizik, from putting forward his views on global warming. (Watch how issues divide evangelical group )

    "We have observed that Cizik and others are using the global warming controversy to shift the emphasis away from the great moral issues of our time, notably the sanctity of human life, the integrity of marriage and the teaching of sexual abstinence and morality to our children," said the letter, which was signed by prominent religious conservatives such as James Dobson, Don Wildmon, Paul Weyrich and Gary Bauer.

    Cizik has been outspoken on the global warming issue, saying in a recent documentary that "to harm this world by environmental degradation is an offense against God."

    But Dobson and the other signatories of the letter to the National Association of Evangelicals board said evidence supporting global warming was not conclusive and that the organization "lacks the expertise to settle the controversy."

    "The issue should be addressed scientifically and not theologically," they said, calling on the group's board to either rein in Cizik or encourage him to resign.

    One of the men who signed the letter, Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council, said global warming was part of a leftist agenda that threatened evangelical unity.

    "We're not going to allow third parties to divide evangelicals, and I think that is what is happening in part with the global warming issue," Perkins said.

    However, the association board not only stood behind Cizik, but also further broadened the group's agenda with a statement condemning torture, which charged that in pursuing the war on terror, the United States had crossed "boundaries of what is legally and morally permissible."

    But one of the board members, the Rev. Paul de Vries, said, "It ought to be God's agenda, not the Republican Party's agenda, that drives us.

    "We're actually tired of being represented by people with a very narrow focus," he said. "We want to have a focus as big as God's focus."

    About freaking time! They oughta put Wildmon in a museum somewhere, the most backwards and ridiculous man in all of Mississippi. He's the same idiot that put down Santa Claus for having a 'communist' red suit over twenty years ago. Sounds almost like Wildmon is getting his stance from an Arlo Gutherie song "Santa Claus wears a red suit, he's a communist, a beard and long hair, must be a pacifist.. what's in that pipe that he's smoking? Santa Claus sneaks in your house at night, he must be a dope fiend.."

    Wildmon is most proud of these dubious accomplisments (lifted from his hate spewing website)

    Disney/ABC cancels the pro-homosexual show Ellen, for "lack of ratings." AFA led the campaign to encourage responsible advertisers to drop from the show.
    AFA leads the effort to clean up Howard Stern Radio Show. To date, over 2/3rds off all advertisers dropped from the show in monitored areas.
    The 43 Federal Prisons removed porn magazines from their commissaries after efforts by AFA supporters.
    What 'HUGE' accomplishments. I wonder if the dumbassed knows that a) there's actually a tv show starring lots of gays, "The L Word" not to mention "Will & Grace" and a host of other shows like "Ugly Betty" with openly gay characters, b) Howeird is now the highest rated satellite radio program and has a huge production deal and that c) access to porn in prison actually cuts down on violence. What's wrong with prisoners jacking off to Miss April? Isn't he afraid they might start buggering each other considering he's even moore opposed to homosexuality than he is to masturbation?
