Bush campaign using church directories to target voters 

Sheesh. Looks like for Bush and his fellow Jeebofascists, there's no line between campaigning and proselytization:

The Bush-Cheney reelection campaign has sent a detailed plan of action to religious volunteers across the country asking them to turn over church directories to the campaign, distribute issue guides in their churches and persuade their pastors to hold voter registration drives.
(via WaPo)

You know, years ago when I was an Episcopalian, another member of the church used the church directory as a marketing tool for his small business, and started making cold calls using it. The guy was shunned; many experienced his use of their information as a defilement. After all, I gave my name to the church to help the parish, not to help this guy make a profit! So how is what the Republicans are doing any different? Is there anything that they touch that they don't defile? Yech!

Oh, but wait. I forgot. Since He has been chosen of God to be our Leader, it's OK! Now I feel better.
