Sick and Tired of "Values Voters"

I do not know about anyone else, but I am weary of being told any Presidential candidate must suck up to a group of people who think women's vaginal canals are subject to Scriptural control and who believe gay people are not and should not be recognized as full citizens. I am even getting angrier at the thought of these bigots being called "values voters," as though hating women, gays, and anyone who does not think like them is what constitutes having values. Those are not my values and I take offense that the entire concept of values must be tied with such ascriptions.

For those of you who do not believe that these people are a threat to a free society, here is an offering of the media's leading values voters. Here is Jimmy Swaggart (he of "I-have-sinned"-after-renting-the-services-of-hookers fame) opining on what he think should be done with gay people.

Here is tax-exempt huckster televangelist Rod Parsley (his accent is fake [he was born and raised in Ohio]) claiming that people like Thomas Jefferson and Benjamin Franklin founded the US to "destroy" Islam.

Here is another John McCain supporter, multimillionaire John Hagee (notice how all of these televized "servants of God" like to wear expensive suits and jewelry [Hagee has a reason to, since he pulls in several million dollars a year from his hate speech....all tax free]), who claims that the invisible man upstairs will unleash terrorists on the US because of our "anti-Israel" policy of seeking a two-state solution to the Middle East peace process.

As a refuge from this ignorance, enter my favorite fake news source, Onion News Network, catering to no-values voters like myself.
