Tell Me More About This Deity You Speak Of

For some reason I found this to be amusing and telling (via James Taranto):
Senator Edward M. Kennedy, Democrat of Massachusetts, is investigating how Democrats can talk more effectively about religious issues in the run-up to the midterm elections, when the party of an incumbent president traditionally loses seats in Congress. He was reluctant to talk about his plans until his staff completed research he requested.

Also in the article cited by Taranto we have this:

"Why is it that abortion is a litmus test and not the death penalty?" [Jennings] said to applause earlier this month at a postelection round-table discussion organized by Gaddy and the Interfaith Alliance.

I don't know, lessee here...Yes......Yes, that's it! Criminals on death row are innocent human life and never even had a chance to emerge from their mother's wombs to be welcomed into the world, while unborn babies got that way (unborn I mean), due to societal, class, and gender pressures over which they had no control! So it's really the same situation!
