These quotes I am writing down are fine examples of attacks all Democrats receive when they run for high public office and Bill Clinton wasn't the exception. Many of these quotes are proven lies. Robert Dornan was a congressman from the Orange County area in southern California. Rep. Sanchez is now the congresswoman from there. She beat him out and he no longer could get it back. Here is his quote.
"He (Clinton) failed to show up for exams at Oxford. He failed to obey international drug laws. He failed his country. He failed his wife. And now he wants to take the oath before God that he won't fail the Constitution. My response to that is 'God Help us.' I pray that Christians will not be deceived by his guile." - Robert Dornan
Words from a lunatic? How does he know these things? Was he there?
Rev. Lou Sheldon, who is head of the Traditional Values Coalition (TVC), also has a quote. BTW, the TVC is on the Southern Poverty Law Center's Watch List as a hate group against Gays and Lesbians in particular.
Here is what he was saying they were doing back in Election 1992:
"We are contacting thousands of ministers across America and challenging them concerning this against the Church?(emphasis mine) and the Kingdom of God. The shepherds must warn the sheep not to vote for the wolf, Bill Clinton."
Who is talking about when he uses the word "Church" in an upper case letter? Certainly not the Catholic Church. The "Body" such as all Believers in Christ? The "Body" is certainly not a monolithic group taking orders in lock step from such two-bit Führer.
Operation Rescue, as we now know, is a radical right-wing fringe group encouraging their followers to assassinate doctors who perform that dreadful, horrible, repulsive proceedure called abortion. The pro-life movement has been set back 30 years as a result of deeds, words, and actions brought upon by the organization. Rev. Keith Tucci makes this quote over candidate Bill Clinton.
"The most wicked men in history have hidden behind superficial Christianity. Bill Clinton fits the mold. Only superficial Christians would vote for him. We are calling pastors to tell their congregations that Bill Clinton is a mocker of God, and therefore undeserving of any person's vote."
He calls for all of these churches to risk losing their 501(c)3 tax-exempt status to tell people how they should vote, put fear into people about the former governor of Arkansas. "Superficial Christians" were to be dealt with and sent to be hung at the gallows.
There are other quotes, but are from representatives who are less known. These are George Grant (not to be confused with Bob), Rev. Paul Schenck, Joseph Scheidler, Rev. Rod Aguillard, and Fr. Louis Marx, all condemning Clinton as the man from Hell, instead of Hope.
But, as it turns out, Bill Clinton turned to be a good president. America still has freedom of religion and the country is still here today. Those who criticized Clinton in the past and who criticize Pres. Obama now are the ones destroy this country. The Taliban, al-Qaida, and bin Laden are the ones I worry a lot less about than what I am witnessing from watching Fox News, from watching obstructionist Republicans on MSNBC, listening to certain individuals who talk politics which is tearing this country up and the concern I have on growing number of hate groups and domesitc terrorists breathing among us.
