Are You a Republican or a Democrat? Here's a Test...

Harold Ford, Democrat candidate for Senate in Tennessee, offers this bit of wisdom on the difference between Democrats and Republicans:
My friend Lincoln Davis who chairs our campaign says there are, there's one big difference between us and misfortunate Republicans when it comes to our faith: he said that Republicans fear the Lord; he said Democrats fear AND love the Lord.
If you can't believe this man actually said this then check out the interview tape here and see for yourself. The way I see it, this is a scurrilous blasphemy against the Body of Christ and the person of our Lord, himself. This is not a Democrat or a Republican matter. Republicans such as Pat Robertson make such outlandish and disgraceful comments all the time. No matter who says it, however, it is equally unacceptable.

If Ford has a pastor, I hope he/she has the courage to gently correct him by speaking the truth in love. Unless, of course, his pastor is a Republican, in which case he/she would only speak the truth.

John Hinderaker at Powerline adds this thought:
"Misfortunate"? If he were a Republican, he'd be stupid.
