ROFL...I saw a couple of pieces on this yesterday, but nothing I really wanted to post. Steve Benen from The Washington Monthly and Michael Stickings over on The Reaction have put it in perspective. I think the last time the pagans got noteworthy political mention was from Falwell right after 9/11.

I do wish that one of the first respondents hadn't said this, though:

I hate to meet the republicans' ignorant spokespeople with our own.  I would rather not think the playing field was quite that level. Cheesy

Pretty much all the supposed "pagan" responses in both articles were wince-worthy.  And screaming "SILENCE, MORONS" at my monitor isn't helping at all...

The comments on that story were some of the best laughs I've had in months.

'Silly Pagan, the Summer Solstice is coming...'

'I was planning ahead'.

MLR52,

That's over the line. You're painting with far too broad a brush and only exposing your own ignorance by assuming that all Republicans are the same as the current crop of GOP spokespeople.

Please refrain from those sorts of comments.

Apparently Gingrich is still sore over that one time that witch turned him into a newt.

Thanks, I needed a laugh this morning. I usually hear with some political figure makes a fool out of himself, but I miss this one.

He says surrounded by Paganism like it's a bad thing.  When will people open their minds and do some research?

To people in the Religious Right, it IS a bad thing. They seem to be convinced that their God will turn his back on America if everyone here does not believe just like they do. The funny thing is that Newt is Catholic now and Catholics are "Pagan" to most Protestant fundies.

<shippage> Catholics are "Pagan" to most Protestant fundies.

They don't even have to be fundies. My parents' denomination, Dutch Reformed, is pretty middle-of-the-road--but OMG, Catholics are the closest thing to damned. They both attended an adult catechism class on Roman Catholicism in the late 60's. I still can't get over the amount of dreck they were fed in that class. ::shudder:: I wonder, the book might still be tucked in Mom's dresser drawer. ::makes note to look next time I'm at the house::
