Department of Repetitive Redundancy

Marty "The Wedding Singer" Peretz writes:

"Christian Believers Would Be Excluded From Government If The Left Liberals Had Their Way"

If they weren't believers, they wouldn't be Christians. And if they weren't liberals, they wouldn't be on the left.

And how exactly did Barack Obama, who identifies himself as a Christian, become President without the the support of "The Left Liberals?" By the unanimous vote of The Right Conservatives?

But Marty's headline isn't the worst piece in his monument to crap. Neither Spinnin' Marty nor the NYT article to which he links identifies a single Left Liberal who would exclude the subject of the post, Dr. Francis Collins, from government service because of his religious affiliation or beliefs. The article says that "some in the field [presumably, other geneticists]" express "unease" about Collins' evangelism. It doesn't say that those unnamed persons are Left Liberals (as opposed to Right-Wing Jews or Moderate Jehovah's Witnesses or Apolitical Atheists or Mind-Your-Own-Damn-Business Canadians).

Peretz himself offers no evidence for his repetitive thesis. He just pulls it out of his rectal posterior ass.
