Yes...their "church" is more of a cult. No Christian in their right mind would back them.

I am a born again agnostic. I was raised Catholic, went to a Catholic elementary school and was an un-abused altar boy. Study of history and the molestation cover ups made me "lose my religion" as it were. I did marry a stout and good Catholic girl but I don't go to church with her.

The religious right includes the Islamic fascists, let's not forget. There are extremes in the Christian right (Phelps) and Islamic right (Taliban, etc.). The problem is there is not enough condemnation from the moderates of these extremes?in both religions. And the extremes get the most air time and make the rest look bad.
