The scrubbing of right-wing wunderkind Hans Zeiger’s prolific written record continues apace, with posts now disappearing from wing-nutty standard bearer WorldNetDaily. Wow. The gay-bashing dominionists are really bending over backwards to help this guy out.
But as long as Zeiger’s in position to win a seat in the state Legislature, the voters of the 25th LD deserve to know where he really stands on the issues. Like whether U.S. Rep. Jim McDermott really is “a full-throated, maniacal traitor against God and country,” and whether Seattle’s St. Mark’s Episcopal Cathedral really is, um, Christian:
Congressman Jim McDermott is a traitor. I told him so myself on a Seattle radio station just prior to the Iraq war after the seven-term Democrat blatantly sided with Saddam Hussein instead of the United States. On Tuesday, McDermott’s hatred of America and America’s God surfaced once again as he led the Pledge of Allegiance on the floor of Congress minus the words “under God.”
[…] McDermott himself is not an atheist. He claims attendance at St. Mark’s Episcopal Cathedral in Seattle, hardly a Christian church. St. Mark’s is currently promoting a “Statement of Faith-based support for Same-sex marriage” and preaches almost exclusively about “social justice,” “peace,” and “diversity” while nary a mention is made of sin and salvation.
[…] It is convenient to think that Jim McDermott is a harmlessly unique product of liberal Seattle, but the truth is McDermott hates America, he despises our Godly heritage, and he sits in the way of the cause of liberty. … I don’t expect Jim McDermott to lose his seat in Congress this election year, but I do expect Americans to understand he is a full-throated, maniacal traitor against God and country.
It is, of course, one thing to attempt to discredit the policies of those who hold opposing political views. McDermott is one of the most liberal and outspokenly liberal members of Congress, so I can understand why righties like Zeiger despise him even more than voters here in Seattle love him.
But Zeiger’s pattern of dismissing even his fellow Christians as “hardly Christian” simply because they hold different political views is awfully disturbing. Zeiger not only doesn’t recognize or embrace the separation of church and state , he doesn’t even accept the separation of his particular church and state. Rigidly believe as as Zeiger believes, and worship God the way Zeiger worships, or you are “a full-throated, maniacal traitor against God and country.”
No doubt Zeiger had WND delete this post because he knew such rhetoric wouldn’t sit well with most American Christians, let alone most 25th LD voters, but the more he attempts to scrub his written record, the more our press has an obligation to let voters know what it really says.
