Religious Lobbyist Sees ”Christian-Bashing” In GOP
A religious lobbyist says some Republicans, including Vice President George Bush, are engaging in “Christian-bashing” and may drive the religious right to form its own party.
Robert Grant, chairman of Christian Voice, criticized Bush for telling a joke about evangelist Oral Roberts. . .
Christian Voice is a lobbying group that issues a “Biblical Scorecard” on what it calls “the family-moral-freedom issues.” They include not only abortion and school prayer, but also support for increased defense spending, “Star Wars,” and aid to anti-communist insurgents in Nicaragua, Afghanistan, Angola and elsewhere. . .
