Too much partisan religion talk

The whole Republicans are religious, Democrats aren't is really getting out hand.

First Howard Dean said that the Republican Party is "pretty much a white, Christian party." Clearly he's wrong.

Now Rep. John N. Hostettler (R-Ind.) accused the Democratic Party of "denigrating and demonizing Christians" as part of "the long war on Christianity in America."

What was the context of that statement? A Democrat-sponsored amendment as part of the annual defense appropriations bill condemning the Air Force academy for being hostile to Jews and trying to convert them to Christianity. So, is criticizing the Air Force for being hostile toward one religion "denigrating and demonizing Christians?" I think not.

Oh, and by the way, the amendment was killed 210-198.
