(from T-Bone Burnett in Sojourners)

"I don't like making dramatic statements, but the Religious Right is using the same arguments - traditional family values, foreign impurity, and the threat of homosexuals - that fueled Hitler's propaganda. His slogan was, Children, Church, and Kitchen, which meant the wife stays in the kitchen, the children go to school, and we all go to church.

The Religious Right has co-opted the word 'Christian.' Those of us who follow Christ and have other values must come up with an effective response. We can't allow them to go on representing us to society and, even worse, representing Christ, because they're producing a completely twisted picture."
