FRC Action 2006 Values Voter Summit: Conclusion
FRC Action 2006 Values Voter Summit:
After spending a whole Friday and eight hours here so far on Saturday, it was time to conclude. Unless you are a brainwashed right-wing theocratic fascist, I found the entire conference to be depressing, hateful, and out of touch with reality. The Saturday night speaker series concludes with entertainer and musician Larnelle Harris, then Newt Gingrich, then the final closing message by organizer Tony Perkins. A Sunday sermon service was also offered.
The FRC Values Voter series was nothing more than a Republican campaign conference designed for theocrats to gain a foothold in politics through the Republican party. They twist Bible verses out of context to justify hating numerous groups of people and replace reality with lies, misinformation, and half-truths.
For someone who has attended church in the past, I was greatly disappointed to see how Christianity evolved into a message of hatred and right-wing fanaticism. These right-wingers mention how the Islamofascists are out to kill Americans, but the reality is the conservative white American from a Christian background, the typical profile of the FRC conference audience, is far more likely to kill you the American, often facing depression and using that gun to shoot you down at school, the workplace, the shopping mall, or on the road.
History shows theocratic fascism never worked. It starts off as a cult group based on lies, misinformation, isolation, brainwashing, fanaticism, militarism, and hatred toward specific groups of people. As with all religious fascism, it then tries to control your sex life, using scare tactics and threats to control your reproductive system and thoughts and hate the group religious fanatics abhored since the beginning of time: non-heterosexuals. As the leaders gain power beyond their control, human nature corrupts them and they inevitably ruin and implode their own government and people. Too bad we never seem to learn from the reality of history.
