Rick Warren's crowd must be good bluffers ...


... because Obama seems to persist in thinking that the Christian Right can be persuaded to be nice to supporters of women's rights when the Christian Right regards them as babykillers.

Sarah Posner has been following this phenomenon, a sham which is looking shammier all the time, at her weekly FundamentaList column at The American Prospect Online.. The hot buzzword is "abortion reduction", which is not much more than the Christian Right's way of saying, you God-hating babykilling liberals support banning abortion and we'll support selling condoms in drug stores.

Pastor Dan at Street Prophets gives more details of how flaky the "abortion reduction" partisans' pretence is getting in I'm Calling Centrists Centrists, That's Who 04/03/09.

"It is the logic of our times
No subject for immortal verse
That we who lived by honest dreams
Defend the bad against the worse."
