Does the Religious Right Believe It's Own Propaganda?

This was sent to me by Don C. Reed. His son, Roman, suffers from spinal cord injury. SCI is one of the conditions for which researchers hope to find treatment using stem cell research.

Remember when President Bush’s spokesperson Tony Snow said the President considered embryonic stem cell research murder?

MR. TONY SNOW: The president believes strongly that for the purpose of research it is inappropriate for the federal government to finance something that many people consider murder. He is one of them. The simple answer is he thinks murder is wrong.”

A few days later Mr. Snow “backpedaled” saying he had “overstepped his brief”, that the President had not called the research “murder” but only “destruction of human life,” thereby allowing the original anti-research message to be repeated world-wide.

Similarly, at the ceremony where he vetoed the Stem Cell Research Enhancement Act, Mr. Bush stated that he objected to the legislation because it "would support the taking of innocent human life…."

Many times, Mr. Bush has used the power of his office to voice the Religious Right argument against ESCR: that it (allegedly) kills babies. The Religious Right bullies Congress with this constantly: threatening massive voter retaliation on anyone who dares to support Embryonic Stem Cell Research (ESCR)—which they equate to abortion.

You and I know this is a lie. Stem cell research is cells, cells, nothing but cells. There are neither moms nor babies involved-- except maybe, someday, people being healed.

Does the Religious Right believe its own propaganda?

Take a look at a straw poll of more than five thousand of the Religious Right’s most ardent true believers, the most faithful of the faithful, the “Values Voters” on Don Reed’s Web site: Click Here to Read More.
