Is the Pope Catholic?

There is a handy retort for anyone who questions a claim to ideological purity, and that is "Is the Pope Catholic?"

Pro-family activists in Maine are now asking the question "Is the new leader of the Christian Civic League really on our side?"

Many readers found the recent comments by the new leader of the League disturbing. Carroll Conley clearly got off on the wrong foot in his first interview, in which a MPBN reporter quoted him as saying the League should be tolerant of opposing ideas on the issue of abortion.

Conley's exact quote was "He (Conley) hopes to strike a balance between the Council's Christian social policies and a tolerance for opposing ideas, especially on the issue of abortion. He says the organization must show compassion toward those who are pro-choice."

Conley's remarks quickly found their way onto a Democrat website, and also the blog of the occult organization, Maine Pagans.

The forces of darkness were not the only ones to capitalize on Conley's remarks. At Goodasyou.org, a homosexual rights blogger welcomed Conley's offer of an olive branch to the gay rights movement. Conley had lamented on the website of the Christian Civic League that too many Christians were guilty of being haters on the issue of Proposition 8. In the past, Conley has claimed that homosexuality is no more of a sin than adultery.

Both these ideas, that Christians are hateful on the issue of gay marriage, and that homosexuality is on a par with other sins, are of course, the talking points of the homosexual rights movement.

But nothing is more shocking than Conley's support of the the 2005 Sexual Orientation Law. In a conversation which took place years before Conley became the Executive Director of the Christian Civic League, Conley told a member of the League that he supported the law protecting equal rights in employment, housing, public accommodations, and the like. Conley denies making the remark.

Many conservatives and supporters of traditional marriage are left scratching their heads wondering why the new leader of the Christian Civic League would support a key part of the homosexual rights movement.
