RWWATCH -- November 29, 2001 (please forward)
[With the current war beginning to wind down, it is appropriate
to return to coverage about the Religious Right. As many of
you have pointed out, the Bush administration is encouraging
the appointment of many political figures who are beginning to
make the U.S. government look more and more like the Taliban.
See http://www.nwu.org/pic/0111nlrb.htm for one example. This
is a National Writers' Union alert about an appointee to the nat'l
labor relations board of a man, Robert Blame, who is virulently
anti labor. Not only that, but he served on the board of an
an organization, http://www.americanvision.org, which advocates
the imposition of Biblical punishment as U.S. law for sins like
adultery, abortion, homosexuality, and blasphemy. This group
raised over 0,000 per year for this purpose, and almost
40% of that was from sales of books. See their tax forms at:
Of course, any story about religious right is not complete
without some information on Pat Robertson. So here is a classic
article by investigative reporter Greg Palast that was quite
successful in mobilizing British public opinion against Robertson.

U.S. vs. Taliban, Bible vs. Koran, religious bigots vs. religious bigots. This is a war between two equally fascist evils. At least we'll know who to *BLAME* now!
