Exposing The Religious Bigatry of the Far Right

RWW mini banner
Earlier this month, nearly every major GOP presidential candidate, along with the top two Republicans in the House of Representatives, spoke at the Religious Right's annual Values Voter Summit. In response to calls from PFAW and others, presidential candidate Mitt Romney made a modest effort to distance himself from the bigoted hate speech regularly pushed by the American Family Association's Bryan Fischer at the event.

In our coverage of the Summit and its participants, PFAW's Right Wing Watch also seized on the anti-Mormon comments of a Perry supporter and Radical Right preacher from Texas, fueling a media flap that's still going even two weeks after the Summit. Questions of religious bigotry on the Right, and the anti-Mormon and anti-Catholic statements of the preacher in question, Robert Jeffres, continue to be a part of the GOP presidential primary narrative.
Not only this way, but also having worked for a far right religious zealot supervisor who was often heard on the cell phone talking to her sister, the owner and manager of a Non-union company and her one and only 'disciple'--" Take him/her for what they are worth!" As if short changing some one, in their case--that someone I was told was 'Guilty' of 'Witchcraft' or 'Being a Warlock' or of 'Being a Goon--in league with the dreaded ex-husband who some how was getting away with lying, cheating, stealing and bribing everyone, with no fear of getting caught' Or so she said.
After all, who was I to question her, when I did, I was told that I was being 'Spiritually Immature'. After all, she claimed to have been the all-knowing, all-wise elder, based on her right-wing politics and being a Gentile Caucasian. Thus she was justified when she accused Pastor Peters of being a Warlock, which she based on Peters being an Hebrew name, so she said that he was of the 'Synagogue of Satan'.
In addition, she convicted a Caucasian teacher of being a 'Witch' based on the fact that she was dating, dare I say it, an African-American man and hung out with other African-American men, whom my supervisor was convinced only hung out with her to find other Caucasian women to rape them and her, even though she's an over 60 old lady. She was terrified to be alone any where near them. I was usually drafted to be her 'Body guard', under such conditions.
