GOP/Media Axis Censors Sane Christians
One of the reasons that so many educated people overseas shake their heads in wonder at America is because we look to them to be a nation purely of Fundamentalist yahoos and snake-oil salesmen. Now granted, the yahoos and the Republican Party have a decades-old symbiotic relationship, but the fact is that they aren't the only churches out there. Unfortunately, you'd never know that to see how the GOP/Media Axis censors the sane and non-bigoted mainstream and liberal churches. Followers of political matters will see something very familiar in how the most back-benched of Republicans can -- so long as he or she's not a known maverick or Bush critic -- get media coverage just by clearing their throats, yet press conferences called by Democratic legislators, even the heavy hitters, are routinely ignored.
