The Christian Right's odd silence over the tragedies that befell southeast Asia this past weekend is truly deafening. A cursury check of their websites and blogs show not a mention of the calamity. As Bill Berkowitz at Workingforchange.com points out...
In fact, there is no mention of the giant earthquake and tsunami that devastated southern Asia. There are no headlines about the dead, injured or the tremendous damage; there are no urgent appeals for donations; there are no phone numbers to call; there are no links to organizations collecting money and providing aid for the victims.
But the Christian Right continues to wage their various assualts on our democracy like extremist judicial nominees, advocating a constitutional amendment against same-sex marrage, and fighting against a women's right to choose rather than joining the world in trying to help the victims in Indonesia, Thailand and India.
Shameful and sad.
