Let's show Gibbons our vales

from grannyhelen - a faith forward exclusive

"I say we tell those liberal, tree-hugging, Birkenstock-wearing, hippie, tie-dyed liberals to go make their movies and their music and whine somewhere else..."

He added it was "too damn bad we didn't buy them a ticket" to become human shields in Iraq...

Who said this? The Nevada Appeal reports it was Nevada Representative Jim Gibbons (R).

There's a movement afoot in the blogosphere right now to contact this guy and let him know how reprehensible these remarks are.

Here's my thought: let's show him the love of God. Let's reach out to him with the message of that a repentant sinner is always forgiven.

Let's shower him with verses from the Torah, the Bible and the Koran, and quotes from folks like Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Gandhi to show him why this thought process is so dangerous coming from a member of our country's government.

In other words: let's show him that the place for religion isn't in the courtroom, but in the hearts and souls of all people, including birkenstock-wearing, tree-hugging, hippie-liberals.

Below is how to contact Representative Gibbons in his Washington, D.C. office:
