Now it turns out that leaders of the Religious Right are knee-deep in the Jack Abramoff lobbying scandal. After years of condemning gambling as a social ill, they�ve been caught in pro-gambling campaigns hatched by the indicted lobbyist.
Their high ground has been washed away. Former Christian Coalition Director Ralph Reed made millions from Indian gambling interests, rallying religious conservatives to oppose competing casinos. James Dobson of Focus on the Family recorded anti-gambling ads that a casino-operating Indian tribe paid to air. And Lou Sheldon�s Traditional Values Coalition was paid $25,000 by online gambling outfit eLottery to lobby congress on its behalf.
It�s time to stop the hypocrisy. Millions of Americans have taken their moral cues from these men, only to find out now that they are in bed with the very interests they�ve earned their living condemning.
Send a letter to Ralph Reed, James Dobson, and Lou Sheldon and tell them to start practicing what they preach.
