From blog correspondent Lee Penn
Republicans admit sending campaign flyers saying liberals will ban the Bible
LP: More for the "God's Own Party" file ...

LP: My comments:

1. Yes, politics is a dirty business, and people on both sides of the aisle tell lies about each other.
2. This still does not make it right to lie and to engage in fear-mongering. Two wrongs do not make a right. "One may not do evil so that good may result from it." (Catechism of the Catholic Church, para. 1756).
3. If the Republicans wish to position themselves as the godly party, they might start by acting in a godly fashion ... after all, one of the Ten Commandments is, "You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.' (Ex. 20:16)
