There was a time when the church was, for the most part, a reliable moral compass. To be clear, the church has always had its problems as an institution. But it maintained a useful sort of order for humanity. This is in my humble opinion irrespective of the specific religion.

The Daily KOS Publisher Markos Moulitsas wrote the book “The American Taliban” that took a few hits but highlights some of these issues as well.
Today we will dissect an interview between CNN’s Don Lemon and Reverend Frank Graham to illustrates not only the hypocrisy of the Right Wing Evangelicals but the danger.
