Time to play the religious right’s favorite game — blame your enemies!

From DefCon:

    Family Research Council: Blame the Homosexuals!
    “But neither party seems likely to address the real issue, which is the link between homosexuality and child sexual abuse.” Tony Perkins, President, Family Research Council

    The Foley Scandal “illustrates the dangers of the GOP’s growing flirtation with pro-homosexual policies.” Peter LaBarbera, Americans for Truth

    Gary Bauer & Focus on the Family Action: Blame the Left!
    The Foley revelations are “an attempt to discourage Christian conservative voters and to get some percentage of them to stay home so that the Left can retake the United States Senate and the United States House.” Gary Bauer, Campaign for Working Families

    “If any lasting cultural good could come out of this awful incident, it would be Americans discarding the politically correct notion fed to us by those on the left that obscenity is just another form of free speech.” Tom Minnery, Focus on the Family Action.

    Tony Perkins: Blame Tolerance and Diversity!
    “It’s outrageous, it’s shocking. But it shouldn’t be totally surprising when we hold up tolerance and diversity as the guidepost for public life this is what you end up getting.” Tony Perkins, Family Research Council

    Not all “diversity” should be accepted and not all conduct or beliefs should be “tolerated.” Wendy Wright, Concerned Women for America.

    “Maybe it’s time to question: when is tolerance just an excuse for permissiveness?” Tony Perkins, Family Research Council

    Focus on the Family: Blame the Internet!
    “This is yet another sad example of our society’s oversexualization, especially as it affects the Internet.” Tom Minnery, Focus on the Family.

    And the best of all….

    Human Life International: Blame….Planned Parenthood?
    “There is never an acceptable excuse or rationale for the type of deviant behavior former Congressman Mark Foley has admitted to. Homosexuality is every bit a part of the culture of death as is abortion and contraception. Not surprisingly, Foley was an ardent supporter of both, representing the interests of Planned Parenthood 64 percent of the time thus far in 2006.” Jason Jones, Human Life International.

How else could they have possibly reacted? We didn't think they'd actually think, or admit the conservative flunkies who legislate their bidding have done wrong, right? Classic.
