RELIGIOUS RIGHT PITCHES HISSY FIT OVER MARIJUANA, POKER BILLS

“Social conservatives” in South Carolina amaze us with their hypocrisy …

On the one hand, a candidate supporting government funding for abortion and a host of other far left causes evoked nary a peep from the state’s “religious right” during a recent legislative election.

Yet a tightly drawn medical marijuana bill – and legislation lifting a prohibition against card games – is somehow worthy of a stealthy warning from one of the God Squad’s bag men.

“You need to tell Tom Davis to stop poking Christians in the face,” one prominent social conservative activist told us earlier this week. “These heathen bills he’s introducing are not going unnoticed.”

Heathen?

Sheesh …

Unlike a lot of “Republicans” who want to expand government’s reach into our kitchens and bedrooms (as if the GOP rape of our wallets and pocketbooks wasn’t enough), Davis is actually fighting to get government off of our backs.

And his bills passed the S.C. Senate unanimously, the last time we checked …

Honestly we wish Davis were being more aggressive in pushing the decriminalization of marijuana and gambling – the latter of which is currently a state-run monopoly.

Still, it’s nice to see at least one member of the GOP leading on liberty issues …
