In the Roanoke Times, Halford Ryan traces the lineage of the “religious right.” A snippet:

At the end of the Civil War, the Rev. Henry Ward Beecher, a Northerner, recalled that secessionists left the Union in 1860-61 with the U.S. Constitution in one hand and the Bible in the other. Bible-based conservative preachers sermonized to their Confederate congregants that the Old and New Testaments revealed God’s imprimatur for Dixie’s Christians to own slaves (Genesis 9:22-29, I Timothy 6:1, and I Peter 2:18).

(snip)

One hundred and fifty years later, the same backward mindsets, still mired in the miasma of scriptural fundamentalism, are even now hawking their biblical bigotry with regard to human sexuality.

Do read the rest.

Dick Polman sees cracks in the Republican coalition between the Masters of Mammon who would run the Republican Party and the Miss Grundies on whose votes they rely.

But on this day when gay marriage is being argued in the U.S. Supreme Court, the God squad and the corporate world are seemingly on the verge of divorce.

Third-tier Republican presidential hopeful Bobby Jindal is trying to repair the breach, in a hilariously ham-handed fashion, and we’ll get to him soon.

Marriage equality is the key point of contention between the factions, and their differences seem irreconcilable. Christian conservatives, who comprise a huge chunk of the party base, believe that gay unions are bad for the nation’s moral character. But corporate leaders have come to believe that right-wing intolerance is bad for business.
