Practice What You Preach

(click to enlarge)


These three leaders of the religious right were part of Jack Abramoff's gambling machine. Former Christian Coalition Director Ralph Reed took money from gambling interests to rally religious opposition to projects opposed by Abramoff's casino and lottery clients. Focus on the Family's James Dobson recorded ads at Reed's request that benefited gambling interests -- at the same time he was preaching against gambling. Lou Sheldon of the Traditional Values Coalition was paid $25,000 by online gambling outfit eLottery to lobby Congress. Don't let them get away with it -- take action now. Send them this letter and and tell them to practice what they preach.

Dear Mr. Reed, Rev. Sheldon, and Mr. Dobson,

For years, you've attacked the freedom of women to control their own bodies, waged war on gay marriage, and fought to erode one of the most central tenets of our Constitution: the separation between church and state. You've always claimed the moral high ground, asserting the right to tell people how to live and condemning millions of Americans for actions you deemed immoral. But your high ground is washed away. After years of condemning gambling as a social ill, you're caught knee-deep in pro-gambling campaigns hatched by indicted lobbyist Jack Abramoff. It's time to stop telling others how to act -- and start practicing what you preach. End your hypocrisy.

Please note: Ralph Reed campaigned all over Western Canada for the current conservative Prime Minister of Canada, Stephen Harper, who is refusing to cooperate with an Ethics Commissioner within days of being in office. He instead did the Bush rubber chicken tour and flew off to boost the troops supporting the Bush Crime family drug operation out of Afhganistan.
