I cannot support a movement that holds that purely religious doctrine should govern civil political decisions and that uses the sacredness of religious faith for the pursuit of worldly power. Yeah, I don't like Jeremiah Wright, Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton either.
I cannot support a movement that is deeply homophobic, cynically deploys fear of homosexuals to win votes, and gives off such a racist vibe that its share of the minority vote remains pitiful. Right. The last time I checked, Barack Obama was still opposed to gay marriage, despite a whole lot of wishful thinking and hard work on the part of the LGBT community in 2008. Of course, you've spent a substantial portion of 2009 excusing Obama's refusal to lift a finger on LGBT issues, so this sort of righteous indignation comes across as both cynical and pathetic at the same time.
I cannot support a movement which has no real respect for the institutions of government and is prepared to use any tactic and any means to fight political warfare rather than conduct a political conversation. Yeah, I don't like ACORN either.
