Marky's world

Mark Niquette did a surprisingly lousy job of covering the Rev. Rod Parsley's attempt to whip up the persecuted-Christian hysteria among his followers. Hell, Niquette didn't even bother to get a response from anyone who might an opposing point of view or who might at least disagree with Parsley's and Alan Keyes' presentation of the facts. (Did Niquette have to call it a night before Ann Coulter spoke?)

So, gee, readers of the Dispatch get to hear, unrebutted, that:
It was that last point that didn't ring true, and we'd sure-as-hell would like to here Keyes' definition of tolerance, especially since Parsley said that evening that, "I will rail against the idea that the God of Christianity and the God of Islam are the same being." Sheesh!

Last, but not least, Niquette got a plug in for Kenny Blackwell's appearance at Parsley's church.

As one blog commenter said, "I wish our churches would focus on their calling instead of the call of Republican politicians.

Likewise, we wish the Dispatch's editors would focus its hacks on real journalism instead of writing press releases for the Christian theocracy.
