Values Voters Summit 2009 - The Face of Hate

The annual coven of gay haters and untethered from reality wingnuts entitled "Values Voter Summit" is scheduled for September 18-20 in Washington, D.C. Among the attendees are a rogue's gallery of politicians who get elected and stay in office buy pandering to racists, homophobes, anti-immigrant bigots and religious fanatics who would abolish freedom of religion for other citizens. Likewise there are many of Faux New's "reporters" and commentators. Naturally, there will also be a who's who of professional Christians who make their livelihood marketing and disseminating hatred. Some of these folks are pictured above, with more shown below. Readers in the USA should take a good look because these are the faces of our sworn enemies. For those in the media, we need to boycott their advertisers and make sure they know why we avoid their products and services.

“Dogma voters” is the more fitting label. “Values voters” is a label invented by people who like to think of themselves as championing good human values. What many of them are pushing actually is dogma. “Values” are “the principles that help you to decide what is right and wrong, and how to act in various situations.” Cambridge Dictionary of American English. “Dogma” is “a fixed, esp. religious, belief or set of beliefs that people are expected to accept without any doubts.” Id. The two, we can only hope, overlap to some extent, but they are hardly the same. Some of what religious fundamentalists hold up as values others find plainly wrongheaded and even immoral. Labels count. Those pushing the “values voters” label hope it will help them pass off their dogma as values. If they want to push their dogma, that’s their right. But “dogma voters” they are, and that’s what I’ll call them.

Doug, you make a geart point and I like the term "Dogma Voters" and I may use it if you do not mind. It better shows where their mind set truly is coming from.

Thank you and you're welcome to it. I've dropped it here and there in the hope it catches on.
