Frist: Christ died for the Republican Party 

Here's what Frist is lending his name to:

The Family Research Council, a Christian conservative advocacy group, has organized an April 24 telecast, "Justice Sunday," which includes prominent conservative Christians speaking by simulcast to churches, Web sites and Christian broadcast networks. Under the heading "The filibuster against people of faith" a flier for the telecast reads, "The filibuster was once abused to protect racial bias, and it is now being used against people of faith."

Dr. Frist will join the telecast through a four-minute videotape, his spokesman said yesterday. Its organizers hope to enlist the grass-roots support of conservative Christians for an imminent Senate battle over Republican proposals to change Senate rules that have enabled the Democratic minority to filibuster, blocking Senate votes on 10 of Mr. Bush's appeals court nominees.

Clever of Frist to not actually appear in person; that way no one can get him and one of these loons in the same photo. But he's saying only Republicans are Christians (and only Christians are Republicans) just the same.

The wingers are really going for broke, aren't they? First, Delay lends his name to a conference where the wingers advocate assassinating Federal judges. Now, Frist comes out of the closet and lends his name to theocracy.

Real mainstream stuff, eh?
