Republic. I like the sound of the word. It means people can live free, talk free, go or come, buy or sell, be drunk or sober, however they choose. Some words can give you a feeling that makes your heart warm. Republic is one of those words. - John Wayne

Lighten Up!!
by Cordeiro
I don't want it ever to be said that I take shots solely at liberal leftists on this blog. I simply take shots at targets of opportunity - an overwhelming majority of which seem to be liberal leftist moonbats.

Today I'm taking a shot at Conservative Christians. Or at least that's what the MSM makes them out to be.

There is but one word that can be used to describe The First Lady of the United States - FLOTUS to the Secret Service and Laura to us here at the SOTR. That word is Classy. She has personified Class since the day she strode into the White House - and everybody including W understands this.

She also personifies devotion to Faith, Family, and her Husband. This has been documented on occasions far too numerous to mention in this writing.

So over the weekend at the White House Correspondents Association's Annual Dinner, Laura gave a speech. I did not witness this speech - somehow my invitation to the event must have gotten lost in the mail. Phone calls to W's private line have gone unanswered.

I digress.

The Correspondent's dinner is a very light hearted affair. Its one of the hottest tickets in DC because the inside the beltway types "let their hair down" and try to have a good time in a town where such a thing usually results in Congressional investigations.

Laura took the opportunity to poke some fun at her husband. She received raucous applause and generally the surprised the crowd with her quick witted humor - most of it at W's expense.

Today, the Swift Report details the "shock" felt by Conservative Christians in regards to Laura's remarks. Pastor Roy DeLog, President of the "Coalition for Traditional Values" stated that

One of the Proverbs says that 'a virtuous woman is a crown to her husband, but she that maketh him ashamed is as rottenness in his bones. I bet President Bush is feeling pretty rotten today.
Memo to Pastor DeLong: Get a friggin' life.

You're the kind of person who makes the rest of us mainstream believers cringe. You can't take a joke. You look down upon anyone who looks like they may be having a fun or enjoying life to any degree. My guess is, sir, W and Laura are probably feeling pretty good about themselves today.

Perhaps, Pastor, you should familiarize yourself with another passage of scripture:

To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:

A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;

A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up;

A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance-Ecclesiastes 3:1-4
Of course, I know what you'll say. "Did Jesus make fun of himself or someone else?"

The answer is, yes.

But whereunto shall I liken this generation? It is like unto children sitting in the markets, and calling unto their fellows,

And saying, We have piped unto you, and ye have not danced; we have mourned unto you, and ye have not lamented.

For John came neither eating nor drinking, and they say, He hath a devil.

The Son of man came eating and drinking, and they say, Behold a man gluttonous, and a winebibber, a friend of publicans and sinners. But wisdom is justified of her children. - Matthew 11:16-19
So, Pastor, lighten up - just a little bit. Go pour yourself a good stiff Coke and stop criticizing Laura when she has a little fun at W's expense.

Here endeth the lesson.

Guys the Swift story about the First Lady drawing ire from conservative Christians is a SATIRE. Read the rest of the site and see.

Doh! Well, as it managed to fool Drudge, I guess I'm in good company. I'll leave the post up, as I'm sure there is someone out there who looked at the satire site and said "Yeah, that Pastor's right on the money!"

The following press release was on the Traditional Values Coalition web site. Apparently they were flooded with emails yesterday.

HOAX PRESS RELEASE ATTACKS FIRST LADY

Drudge, MSNBC Fooled By Latest Attack on Traditional Values Coalition

For Immediate Release
May 2, 2005
Contact: James Lafferty
(202) 547-8570

Washington, DC – The hoax press release distributed under the name of the Traditional Values Coalition is the most recent tactic in an ongoing campaign of harassment of the conservative church group over the past year, according to the Coalition’s Washington office.

“Our computers have seen more viruses than a pediatrician’s office,” said TVC Chairman Rev. Louis P. Sheldon. “Today’s phony press release is just the latest dirty trick aimed at discrediting our efforts on behalf of America’s churches.”

“We thought Mrs. Bush’s remarks at the correspondents’ dinner were hilarious. We are very pleased that she is America’s First Lady.”

Rev. Sheldon called this the latest attack on the church group’s operation in Washington.

“If you want to talk about desperate, you should look at all the time and energy being spent to disrupt our Washington office,” said Rev. Sheldon. “Each week strange things are mailed to us, all sort of mischief is played on our computer system and our staff has to deal with a host of distractions.”

“Our feeling has been to shrug it off because it comes with the territory.”
