Under the Dome is reporting that Elizabeth Dole is criticizing Kay Hagan for receiving support from "anti-religion" groups.
Republican U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Dole is attacking Democratic challenger Kay Hagan for raising money from “anti-religion activists” at an upcoming event in Boston.
Hagan is appearing at a fundraiser by two people who do not follow the tenets of Christianity, a clear attack on our Constitutionally-derived rights to Freedom of Religion.
Amendment 1 - Freedom of Religion, Press, Expression. Ratified 12/15/1791.
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
How does Dole respond?
Another Dole spokesman, Hogan Gidley, pointed out that freedom of religion is part the Constitution, but he questioned Hagan’s ties.
“You can tell a lot from who your friends are,” Gidley said.
It would appear that Kay Hagan is friends with people who believe in the Constitution, therefore, she is a strong believer in the Constitution. Meanwhile, Elizabeth Dole is
"scheduled to attend a fundraiser this week at the Tampa, Fla., home of Alfred Austin, a Bush “Ranger” in the 2004 election." I think that tells all anyone needs to know about who Elizabeth Dole is.
Lastly, Under the Dome reveals to us that:
Dole, too, often attends church services around the state when she is in North Carolina.
Given that Elizabeth Dole lives full-time in Washington, D.C. and her husband still maintains his residency in Kansas, one can only assume that Under the Dome is suggesting that Elizabeth Dole rarely attends church services.
For those who don't get it, this is a joke, poking fun at Under the Dome. Showing how easy it is to put a partisan spin on any article. UtD swears that they are not biased, but the spin in their articles is purely Republican-based. Now, about this article. Elizabeth Dole is attacking Kay Hagan for receiving support from atheists, which is a clear attack on people's Constitutional Freedom of Religion. Is that UtD's lead? No, they lead with Hagan being supported by "anti-religion" groups. No bias there. They also go out of their way to mention that Elizabeth Dole goes to church when she is in the state, even though the campaign did not tell them that and they offer no proof of it. If the Hagan campaign says that and it isn't true, then they are setting themselves up for a big fall. UtD did not attribute Dole going to church to anyone, so who said it? Can they prove it? Again, Dole does not come to North Carolina, so when does she go to all these church services?
