Joe Lieberman, The ‘Religious Phoney’ Who Violated Judaism By Repealing DADT

I was waiting for the Don’t Ask Don’t Tell repeal debate to turn religious, and I had to wade into the murky depths of Americans For Truth About Homosexuality’s Peter LaBarbera to get there: “Americans are tired of religious phoneys like [Sen. Joseph] Lieberman – politicians who use their religion as a PR prop while actively undermining its moral dictates. Claiming to be an ‘observant’ Jew, Lieberman wears his religion on his sleeve (perhaps he will walk, not drive, on the Jewish Sabbath Day today to cast his pro-homosexuality vote!). Stealing the moral authority of ‘civil rights’ is the only way Lieberman can rationalize his role as a crusader for the ‘Gay’ Lobby on Capitol Hill — when His religion, a form of Orthodox Judaism, condemns homosexual acts as an ‘abomination.'” And while many folks would disagree with that assessment, I’m going to find a small child (the tinier the hands, the better) to write that down on a tiny piece of parchment, then stick it in a mezuzah, hang it near my door, and kiss it every time I leave the house.
